Faroe Islands MP refuses to dine with Iceland’s gay prime minister and her partner.
An MP from the Faroe Islands has refused to attend a state banquet held in honour of Icelandic prime minister Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir’s official visit.
The prime minister of the Faroe Islands, Kaj Leo Johannesen, invited all seven of the Faroe Island’s party leaders to dine with Ms Sigurðardóttir and her wife, Jonina Leonsdottir. However, Jenis av Rana MP, leader of The Centre Party, a Christianity-based conservative party, declined the invitation, reportedly saying it was against his religion and that he wouldn’t “dream of attending such a banquet”. – Pink News UK
