The Tolerantia-Prize will be awarded to Philipp Lahm because of his tolerance towards homosexuality in football. Lahm was the first german football player who advanced a positive opinion in this matter: "If a player is gay, it wouldn't change anything about my attitude towards him!", he said.

Heartwarming really is the right word here, I think. I really like that he cares about this subject.

I feel a little bitter, though Because I truly hope that one day we'll live in a country where you don't need to award a prize for someone saying that he doesn't have a problem with homosexuality.

aww, i love phil. i'm glad he is the kind of guy who can take a stand on this subject, when no one else seems to want to. even though it's unfortunate that it's an award-worthy thing, i think he deserves it.
