What? No parade!?
Did you take a risk doing that? Is there some iron age book giving bad people the justification to vilify you for anything in your announcement? The very real problems gay people have to this day because of the attitudes of others is not funny.

The pressure that the thought police try to impose upon you is very real too. I am not a gay basher by any means, but I do not support their agenda either. That's my right. Deal with it.

The sooner that we can stop talking about a player who averages ONE point a game the better. He can live his life however he wants. It's a non-story to me. It doesn't belong on ESPN 24/7.

You mean the agenda of being free to be themselves? How that must grate on you.

The reason it's a story is that the many gay players in all sports still feel that they have to lie about who they are because of who you and people like you are.

If this was a non-story to you you could have skipped the thread.

Exactly.

Here's some lovely gems I've stumbled across on FB.

I'm willing to bet he was "recruited" by the gay movement.

I am thinking AIDS is a good thing......

it's the deconstruction of our society...and our commie back door bandit in the White House is all for it...

I had to shake my head at some lady who went on a huge rant about how she is so fed up with "the gays" having their stupid parades and how her city cut some armed forces day parade in half...like it was "the gays" fault that her city is probably financially strapped and can't afford it.

People are disgusting sometimes. Anyone who claims this is a non-issue is kidding themselves.

And many people are afraid to express their religious beliefs because of people like you.

It's a non sports story. I didn't say that the topic wasn't relevant. I just don't tune in to ESPN to hear about someone's sex life - gay or straight.

Religion is a cover. It's as much a cover for this bigotry as it is a cover for antisemitism or throwing acid in a little girl's face for going to school. Religion should not excuse the infringement of another's freedoms and people like me will continue to fight against just that.

Some gay men molest small boys too but I don't think that all gay men are pedophiles.

It must suck to be just like the people you accuse. Your agenda has nothing to do with equal rights, it's simply a pro-gay agenda. That's fine. I'm a Christian. Are you a homosexual? If you are, that's cool. Just because I don't agree with your lifestyle doesn't mean I can't show respect to you.
