Super Bowl or Gay Equality Bowl

Mr. Brown states that San Francisco has a “large” population of homosexuals. Research that I did puts the homosexual population of San Francisco at about 15%. Black Americans number about 15% of the U.S. population with Hispanics having a slight lead over Blacks. Other numbers put political conservatives at over half the total population of the U.S. So why do politicians worry so much about these minority populations but don’t give a hoot-in-hell what conservatives think? Conservatives are treated like an insignificant minority and the real minorities are given the status of huge majorities. Something is very, very wrong.

15% IS large when you consider that the real proportion of self-described homosexuals in the general population is somewhere around 1-2% at most.

And, yes, something is very, very wrong with the way this current world works when a miniscule minority can call the shots. My biblically informed opinion is that it is the influence of the "prince of this world" combined with God's own "strong delusion" sent to those who refuse to obey, as prophesied.

Beethhovens10th..to respond to your 4:27 pm post:

The Republican Party came quickly into being in the late 1850's because of the absolute inability/unwillingness of the Whig Party to deal with the slavery dominated Democrat Party in the pre-Civil war political scene. The GOP's 'birth' did not take 'a decade or more'. What WAS required was the realization on the part of people with political will and vision that the 'old way' (the Whigs) was no longer working. The GOP now, 150 years later, like the Whigs of the 1850's, does not have the will or vision to deal with the Socialist challenge of the Democrats. The BEST thing the Tea Party conservatives, and like-minded folks could do, at this point, is to disengage and disembark (continued)

(continued) from the smoking, rudderless hull of the GOP, and begin to challenge BOTH the RINOS and the Socialists for the 'helm' and 'vision' of where this country needs to go from this point. The 'marriage' of the Tea Party and the GOP RINOS is a sterile, loveless match that will produce nothing of value or life for this country....

I hope you're right, Andy. But "quickly" in political terms is still quite a few years.

I honestly do not believe this country HAS 'quite a few years' without radical change in direction, on a number of fronts... social and economic

I agree 100% with your opinion.

Because the politicians in BOTH mainstream political parties do not give a hoot about the American people, or the American Republic. It's somewhat amusing and puzzling to me how millions of "conservatives" in this country have not yet figured that one out, despite approximately 4-5 decades of powerful evidence to demonstrate the truth of the assertion. A Conservative Christian Third Party could be the 'fulcrum' to change the ENTIRE DYNAMIC in Washington DC and Congress; yet we still have millions slavishly clinging to the GOP, trying desparately to deny the incontrovertible fact about WHO and WHAT the GOP is (hint: it's not serving the American middle class, the conservative agenda, or the Republic).

Excellent, Andy. But a viable party takes a decade or more to build, and this country can't withstand that much leftism for that long, and by that time, a "conservative Christian" party will be deemed "unconstitutional" by the sham of a court that will be in existence.

But, I think that that process of a new party birth is already underway and that the TEA Party was a seed to build on. But the real conservatives within the Republican Party are what we have to work with now. I think they are easily identifiable.

... and that is why after the November elections, I promptly left the GOP. I've had it with BOTH parties. They're both thoroughly corrupt. There IS a party that represents me - the Constitution Party. I strongly urge every single registered Republican to dump the +%$(@)!# GOP and join the Constitution Party. Enough of this BS voting for the lesser of two evils cr*p.

Join the Constitution Party! Look them up. We've GOT to start somewhere, sometime, somehow. Let's do this. If enough registered Republicans will have the courage and dump the GOP, we CAN truly restore this nation!

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...
