Super Bowl or Gay Equality Bowl

Mr. Brown appreciates the benefits of heterosexual marriage and pressures straight women athletes may feel on softball teams. He seems to be oblivious to the centuries of persecution gays have undergone and the stigma, demonization, pressure, bullying and lack of civil rights they undergo even today. Just a few years ago, a gay man could still go to jail for consensual sex? Gays are still regularly mocked. I have always been a supporter of gay rights and am glad we have come time where they can marry, serve openly and not worry about prison. I suspect in 20 years many conservatives will not remember that they were against it. That is the pattern for social change like this.

Social change? You mean forced acceptance of a repugnent lifestyle? The liberal media and the current administration will crow on about how "most people accept this" but this is just more lies and
propaganda from the liberal media. We don't like the lifestyle, we don't appreciate deviancy being masqueraded as normalcy and anybody with a normal think
ing process can see the ultimate damange that this is inflicting on normal famies. But hey, don't let the facts get in the way of your sleazy agenda.

So you believe that law should be predicated on what the majority likes or doesn't like? You don't even comprehend the despotic system you argue for. And contriving "harms" is easy. Just look at how Progressives contrive all manners of harms that require government regulation.

I'm commenting on his sympathy for people who are heterosexuals but lack of sympathy for homosexuals, even though they are the ones most often demonized. E.g., If there are straight women in sports who felt pressure, that is wrong, but, sorry, nothing compared to what gays go through, many every day of their lives. People often only get rights by making noise and fighting for them. I'm sure, whatever Mr. Brown's fears, the day will be about football, and if we hear anything about gay rights, it will be a blip. Frankly, I wish they would do without the half-time entertainment and just talk about football or if anything else, politics. But, I will deal with it. If we hear anything about gay rights, so he deal with it too. Enjoy the game.

Is it too much to ask that the focus of this Sunday be on football and not on “gay rights”? Will I be branded as a homophobic bigot for daring to make such a request? (I can answer that already: Yes!)

Last week, Fox News ran the headline, “Baltimore Raven linebacker [Brendon Ayanbadejo] uses Super Bowl spotlight to promote gay marriage,” reporting that, “Hours after Ayanbadejo’s team beat the New England Patriots on Sunday, paving their way to football’s biggest game, the three-time Pro Bowl special teams player wrote an email to gay marriage proponents asking how he could use...
