"It is impossible to change my culture forsomething different. It's me... I respect all the world, allthe culture. We are a gay couple. We love gay adoption." Thecomments of Dolce and Gabbana had unleashed the fury of EltonJohn, father with his partner David Furnish of two childrenthrough a surrogate mother.
