Kristendemokraterne leader says people are being force-fed a wrong lifestyle

Denmark should pull out of Eurovision next year following the victory of drag singer Conchita Wurst in the European Song Contest on Saturday, according to Stig Grenov, the leader of the Christian party Kristendemokraterne.

In an interview with Jyllands-Posten, Grenov explained he found this year's Eurovision to be against Christian values. 

"The show has been presented as a victory of tolerance, but it wasn't that at all. The winner, he, her or høn (Swedish non-specific gender pronoun), took the show and abused it to make a political statement," Grenov told Jyllands-Posten.

Hijacked by homosexuals
Although he underlined that he had nothing against gay people, he claimed homosexual forces have hijacked the show and aim to erase any differences in gender and identity. 

"They want everything to be the same. They have raped the show and force-fed it to the rest of us," he said, adding that people should be allowed to live the way they want to, but that they shouldn't promote a "wrong" lifestyle in a song contest.

No longer in parliament
Kristendemokraterne hasn't been represented in parliament since 2011 and currently holds 0.4 percent of the vote, according to a recent Voxmeter poll.

The party has suggested Denmark should not enter the contest in 2015 and spend the money on fighting the persecution of minorities instead.
