Quote# 89730

So there I was, sitting in Applebee's having a nice lunch (a cup of french onion soup their signature club sandwich) and lo and behold on the tv facing me 10 feet away I have to put up with being indoctrinated on the evils of homophobia by ESPN.

For those of you that haven't heard, Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar had the audacity to write some miniscule word in Spanish on his eye black during a recent game that the gay gestapo deemed "homophobic". Even though Escobar apologized and lowered his moral standards into the gutter by stating that he's not homophobic and has fag friends, the tolerant child molesters at GLAAD (Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) would have nothing to do with it, and Escobar was suspended for 3 games and forced to pay the $92,000 lost in wages to GLAAD and "You Can Play", a group of proud/unrepentant homosexual athletes (all 12 of them).

What was so disgusting about the ESPN coverage is that some lisper from GLAAD sat there talking with a panel from ESPN about the evil of homophobia for a half hour (hence ruining my nice lunch) and NONE of the former athletes not once dared say a word denouncing the immoral, promiscuous, disease ridden 'deathstyle'.

Undoubtedly they wanted to keep their jobs.

The 21st Century is waiting for you whenever you care to join it. Until then, STFU.

They want to keep their jobs? Really? Did you ever once consider they agree wholeheartedly because they're not lunatic clowns?

Do these people not realize how immature it makes them look when they randomly accuse people they disagree with of child molestation for no reason?

Ruined your lunch! Aiming directly at you, personally.

-- persecution --

Oh, the humanity!

Aw, diddums. Was oo all upset by the nasty man, den? Tough shit. Loser.

If you can't tolerate something, at least provide a rational justification rather than a string of ad-hominems and namecalling; people dislike the former much less. If not, then shut up.

You people will never realize that persecuting people for being different is wrong, will you?

I'm betting that Culture Warrior here has probably met far more gay people than he realizes. Heck, he probably knows more gay people than he realizes.

I'll bet you hate niggers and racemixers too.

Meanwhile, here in the cause and effect universe inhabited by sane people, he was punished by the league because the message on his "eye black" was deemed a taunt directed at other players. That's against the rules no matter what specific words are used. He would have been punished just the same if the message was "you suck" instead of "you're a faggot".

BTW. It's really kinda stupid to blame a network for truthfully, unlike FAUX"News", reporting on a story that makes you uncomfortable.

You clothe yourself in an armor of self-righteousness. your weapons consist of nothing more than a worn out bag of whines and petty insults, and you call yourself a warrior?

You know what? Buy yourself a can of Campbell's and eat it in the silence of your home, where you don't have to see or hear anything that upsets your little tummy.

What a pile of bullshit this story is. And who the hell gets in a flurry because someone writes something under their eye? Grow up.

Christianity has ruled the roost for centuries, if not millennia. Times change. Technologies change. Attitudes must change. Otherwise, you'd still be living in a hut, with no TV (to watch ESPN), computer/internet etc.

Like I say, attitudes change. As with the times & technologies, they must. So things have gone the other way; you're no longer ruling the roost, in control of the playground. And when you're 'bullied' (via human rights legislation) by those your precious 'Christianity' bullied for centuries, you throw a tammy-huff and spit your dummy out. Well, boo-hoo; too bad, so sad.

Suck it up, princess!

Now tell me were you'll have lunch tomorrow, I want to ruin it. Society doesn't agree with you, if you can't deal with that, get out of the country you're in!

You know, it's possible to ignore a television 10 feet away, even if you're facing it. Of course, you could also have moved to the other side of the table, or asked to move away from the TV.

Of course, it's more fun to complain about your lunch being ruined by "them," isn't it?

You have some sort of point to this rambling diatribe, I presume?

You couldn't leave and HAD to sit there for a half hour, huh? So much for that whole "Free Will" thing the fundies seem so proud of!

@farpadokly:
So, you'd be okay if his eyeblack had said "lynch n*ggers"?
He broke the league rules, which is bad enough even without the slur he used.

aCultureWarrior, of course, is such an awful example of humanity that even most of the other right-wingers & Christians at TO call him out for it.

Your bigoted stream of consciousness was so convincing that I hope you die horribly.

Something's being done to combat homophobia in sport? About time!

Congratualtions, your test results are in. You are a horrible person. That's what it says. A horrible person. We weren't even testing for that. [/Glad0s].



What I get from your post is "bawwwww. They have to be respectful and I can't persecute them."

I could tell you were a moron the moment you said you were having a nice lunch at Applebee's. Applebee's has terrible food.
