What's the problem? The Cowboys are a privately owned team. They can stick whoever they want on their team and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Let's just forget about this dude and move on with our lives.

I was so happy to read about this judgment earlier today. He's really hitting the nail on the head. It does deserve its own thread. These state gay marriage bans are dropping like flies!

Yes. As opposed to this idiot.




Exploring Louisiana Judge's Conservative, 'Terrifying' Background

The ruling presents a troubling misunderstanding of the facts in the case, going so far as to refer to marriage equality as "lifestyle choices recognition." Feldman also compares gay and lesbian coupling to incest and statutory rape.

I was just imagining Westboro Baptist Church buying season tickets to the Cowboys so they can "picket" - and what would the Bible-thumping Texans do??? Join them??
Tell them to bugger off because it's not their "territory"?

It would be a riot (and I mean like in the hilarious AND the mayhem sense).
FAR more interesting than the game or the cheerleaders. Watch the Thumpers in action!!

What an idiot. Whatever happened to “Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.”
These biblethumpers need to actually start following what their religion says if they want to be taken
seriously.


I think they are follow what their religion says, homosexuality is frowned on in their Dr. Seuss bible. The quote you put up apparently doesn't apply to gays.

I would pay to see all these "conservative Christians" line up and let Michael Sam run them down.

is a very real issue, IMO, and it is an issue which has been intentionally manipulated by the media. As a dad, when I watch football or any other major sport on TV, I want to be able to safely watch with my 6 year old and my 8 year old. I don't need or want one of them even thinking about sex, be it gay, straight, or other. They are children. There is a clear agenda in AMerica to sexualize the youth and it is beyond sick.


The scantily clad cheerleaders with legs spread at a 90 degree angle not withstanding, right? I'm sure your holy righteousness brings you to shield their precious eyes from such vulgar sexual displays.

Michael Sam is fully clothed on the field, in case you weren't aware. If your kids asks what gay means, tell him/her that gay people are people just like you and me who just happen to like to have same-sex relationships. But from reading your post I've got a pretty good idea of the sort of things you'll be filling little heads with about LGBT folk.

Your hangups are your problem, not the NFL's, not the 'gay agenda's,' it's a you issue.

I don't know about anyone else but I don't even see the cheerleaders anymore. Like commercials. Blanked out. AND some of the stupid commentators. Looking Tony Kornheiser's way. I just watch the games.

No one is going to pull their sponsorship because of a boycott. If they pull their sponsorship there will be a large group of people who, despite what the sponsors 'reasons', will say that it was pulled due to there being a gay athlete and THAT'S controversial. In the face of this, most sponsors hands are tied.

Yea, I am tired of 1.5 percent of the population having special rights over others. Jones is a true marketing guy, anything to help get ratings.

So there will be an entire protest because a gay guy is into sports, and yet, people keep complaining about why gay people are always in the news. It's because groups like these keeping making being gay into a big deal when it isn't.

The difference is that Tebow has no talent for the pro game. It happens. See Ryan Leaf. He wasn't ditched because he's a Christian.

a reply to: BasementWarriorKryptonite Well I pray for those who are against G_D, or sin. I do not hold judgment of them, only those as in my post that carve out special status for one group over another, Tebow was shunned by the NFL for being a Christian, the Sodomite is cheered, this is a disturbing trend in todays world.

When it comes to football you'll hard pressed to find someone that knows more mate. The fact is that in college Tebow excelled. He could play at they pro level though. Maybe g_d should have given him more talent.

A sin is a sin

Kurt Warner was a huge christian and NFL star, yet he lied about injuries (hand), that greatly reduced his performance and the teams record.

No one protested.

Those without sin cast the first stone.
