Norway: Tooji comes out and releases 'Father'

Tooji, Norway's 2012 representative, has been fighting against discrimination and racism all his life - however the Norwegian-Iranian singer has today come out in the most extraordinary way. His new song - Father - challenges religion and it speaks volumes.
 The song and the video is about running from himself, denying himself, and yes, if God is in everyone and everything, denying God. With the project I want to express that love between two of the same sex has been tainted by religion for too long. And that religion has imposed too many people unnecessary shame and anguish throughout the years.
I can't lie, I'm not a lover of the song itself but the message here is very important. Very important indeed. Good job, Tooji :-) #LoveIsLove!
