Did a Truckload of Morons Spill Over on The Interstate?

Michael Sam: Talented. Football Star. Gay. Big deal.

As if we don't have enough religious-zealot-wingnuts trying to Super Glue® church and state together, we now have have another whackjob GOP lobbyist who thinks that the government needs to be a moral compass for the NFL?

There have been all manner of people on both sides of none-of-their-effing-business lobbing turds over the fence at each other regarding Michael Sam, likely top draft pick for the NFL, and the shining star of college football at the moment (All-American and the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year), because he came out and said publicly, "I'm Gay," after finishing his senior year at Missouri.

Whackjob GOP Lobbyist Jack Burkman
One vocal shithead/asshat/meddling fool is Lobbyist Jack Burkman. He thinks it's time for the government to get involved in how the NFL conducts business because, "Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man. That’s a horrifying prospect for every mom in the country. What in the world has this nation come to?”

THIS nation has to come to some conclusions about your stupid, baseless worries, Jack. For instance, A) you're gay and worried about being discovered checking out the other guys in the shower, B) you have tiny junk and are certain that "the gays," with all of their vast experience sizing up junk, would give you an "F" and tell the world about your shortcomings, and C) you've lost your delusional mind. Perhaps it's D) all of the above.

OK. That was a joke. Sort of.

But, Burkman is one of more than a few who are doing everything they can to push back the tidal wave of support for equal rights for everybody, including, in this case, me. Brian Kelsey (R-Tennesee). Eddie Farnsworth (R-Arizona). Cathi Herrod, President, Center for Arizona Policy.

These buffoons are using talking points perpetuated in the media by so-called christians (lower case "c" intended), who feel that their rights are being trampled because I am fighting for mine and finally a majority agrees that I should have them now. According to the Constitution, I should always have had them. But, that's another rant for another day.

You're a christian baker who doesn't want to bake a cake for my wedding because it goes against your beliefs? Fine. Why the hell would I want you to be a part of one of the most important milestones in my life? I don't want your bad juju anywhere near my bliss. So stick a cross in your window so the whole world knows your heart. I'll know exactly what I will do.

Oh, but wait. If you did that, others — "non-gays" — might avoid you too, because that, my friend, is a sign that you have no idea what being a Christian means.
