Chris Culliver to work with gay, lesbian youth (G-y Agenda in the NFL)
nfl.com ^ | 2-2-1013 | Chris Wesseling

Posted on 02/02/2013 3:08:53 PM PST by Houmatt

After stating earlier in the week that gay football players "gotta get up outta here," San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver released a statement Wednesday night insisting "those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart."

While it's fair to wonder if the latter sentiment was prompted by Culliver's publicist, the second-year cornerback is at least taking a proactive approach to assisting the community he offended. Culliver will undergo sensitivity training and then work with "The Trevor Project" in the weeks after Super Bowl XLVII, reported the San Jose Mercury News, to learn more about suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.

"We really feel that education about LGBT youth and the challenges they face is a great way to get (Chris) started on the right path," said Lauren McGinnis, communications director for The Trevor Project, "especially since he's a role model."

In other words, Culliver has been told he has to do this if he wishes to continue playing professional football.

This is very sad.

Obama ruins everything we used to enjoy.

Freedom of expression is suffering an ugly death in this country.

Thanks to the democrat voting constituencies.

Culliver said, “No, we don’t got no gay people on the team.”

if read correctly, Culver said that every member of the 49’s is gay.

Exactly. He must be forced to accept what is offensive.

The Nazi Football League.

Well, he’s in California, so he can’t counsel these misguided children that homosexual behavior is wrong. That’s illegal.

Now I understand why Bama’s running back, Glen Coffee, who was drafted by San Francisco a few years ago QUIT the NFL and returned home. He found that he did not want to be a part of that kind of life. It wasn’t football that was the problem. When your bosses want you to compromise your beliefs, you can go along with it or leave. He left.

That is actaully a very valid point - and the right of employers is just part of property rights. And Culliver was on “company time” and speaking as part of a “company function.”

What makes this one so offensive is that we know “the company” - the NFL - is being intimidated by Omerica.

I'm aware of that.

But not too long ago this man's comments wouldn't have warranted such a hypersensitive response by the company.

Soon everyone will be afraid to publicly express any sentiment that is at odds with acceptable norms, no matter how trivial or innocuous.

That is my point.

Rush said the Superbowl isn’t about football. It’s about gay rights.

And we know if people were “promoting” straight rights it would not be accepted. Just like reverse discrimination.

Employers have the option to change their standards and expectations of their employees.

As for Culliver, I do not get the impression that he has the option to leave the NFL and find a job as a brain surgeon or a nuclear physicist.

Foolish man - he apparently believed that none of his teammates tended to aberrant & unsanitary sexual behavior.

He has been 'corrected'.

You are correct, and I'm sure the NFL would have intervened whether or not Culliver was on "company time" when he said what he said. The fact remains, he said this on company time, and as awful as the NFL's actions are, they do have the legal right in this case.

But we have the right to make fun of them for it too.

To clarify, Ford would have the right to discipline a Ford employee who said in a public radio interview at a car show that Chevy products are superior. Same follows here.

The homo agenda is ruining sports. They have homosexual advocacy commercials during NHL games now. I watch less football than I used because of all the liberalism. If I had little kids I definately wouldn’t have a TV. It’s indoctrination 24/7.

Of course I agree - holding its employees to certain standard is among the dwindling rights a company can exercise.

Especially when those standards conform to government sanctioned thinking.

But I'm sure you'd agree its indicative of a growing and unhealthy intolerance. Years ago a company would've shrugged and said 'yeah, well thats his opinion' and left it at that. And everyone would've agreed.

Now those with incorrect opinions must be made an example of.

It just ain't American.

He was at an NFL Media Day and was representing his team and the NFL.

He was on company time.

I totally agree that is un-American, hypocritical, politically correct - and I also think that a business has the right to be all of those things, and we have the right to criticize them for it.

And yes, it is definitely a sign of the times, and it’s disturbing as hell. 100% with you.

There is another issue at play here, and it’s a misunderstanding of rights (and I am NOT assuming you have this misunderstanding by the way). We cannot necessarily exercise all of our rights simultaneously. Culliver was exercising his free speec hand his right to pursue happiness by way of a big NFL paycheck at the same times. Turns out, those rights are not compatible, but the Constitution never promised mutual inclusivity of all rights at all times.

No clue what you are talking about. Would it be so hard to just say, “Yes, you are correct, bramps.” Or do you believe the NFL has or should have the right to force a player to work with a homosexual advocacy group against his religious beliefs?

Paul Tagliabue’s son is gay. That’s been a big part of the gay friendly move in the NFL head offices. It’s not compatible with football culture. I feel for this Culliver guy. He can’t even be himself, he has been reeducated.

Okay, hold on. Are you a homosexual?

Why are you defending the NFL?

If the man isn't comfortable with homosexuals playing football with him (as it's his right to be uncomfortable), he has the right to say so.

Who the hell are you (or the NFL) to say he doesn't have that right, or that he should be forced to accept homosexuality just so he can play pro?

Of course he does. No real man would want a sodomite with him in the locker room.

YEEEHAW!!! Time for some football Freepers!

Just a heads up to the HUGE drooling, gushing horde of Superbowl fans who will be flooding unto FR Superbowl threads tommorow weeping and cheering play by play.

The queer left and Obama’s state controlled MSM “sports”?

“What does it matter?”

He has the right to be uncomfortable, but his employer has the right to object and issue reprimands if their employee makes a statement they find distasteful while their employee is representing the company.
