Posted on 02/24/2014 6:40:07 PM PST by massmike
Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman said that he is drafting legislation that would ban gay athletes from playing in the NFL if approved.
We are losing our decency as a nation, Burkman said in a statement, according to Rebecca Shabad of thehill.com. Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man. Thats a horrifying prospect for every mom in the country. What in the world has this nation come to?
His legislation was spurred by the coming out of Michael Sam, who, if drafted, will become the first openly gay man in the NFL.
While he claimed to have political backing for the bill, he failed to mention any specific supporters.

I’d bet dollars to doughnut holes that Jack is working for the gay lobby running a false-flag operation.
I wouldn’t doubt it. No one could be THIS blatantly stupid!
Yeah, this is so clearly anti constitutional that it can’t possibly be serious.
Well, the NFL is certainly going to have to start penalizing all those butt slaps.
This sounds like a Comedy Channel skit, mocking Republicans. Is this legit?
I want to understand why I have to know his perversions....let alone accept them.
Freakin homos need to STFU.
This could ultimately lead to anysex showers with players and cheerleaders.
They had to look under quite a few rocks to find this guy, and now he’ll be on the front page of the NyTimes for many, many months.
He can, like, totally shower with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix!
No seriously, there is a college player from Alabama named Ha Ha Clinton-Dix!
I can only assume. NESN is our local cable sports network here in Boston....NOT a satire site.
Although admittedly it IS getting harder to tell the news from satire these days....
The thing that gets me is that if you think about it, the gays don’t tolerate people that think their lifestyle is wrong. While at the same time wanting those same people to tolerate their lifestyle.
Or, gays don’t tolerate religious people that are disgusted by the perversion, yet they want those same religious people to tolerate them.
Yep. It’s all over ESPN, Deadspin, etc... hitting the low info/apolitical types, making the GOP look like fools.
He is a Ron Paul “Republican” nut ball. I guess he can kiss his MSNBC gig goodbye.
THAT explains a lot.......
It sounds like a parody. I mean consider the felons in the league.
Funny how they will give this guy all the air time he wants, yet will not give a reputable global warming critic any time at all.
I’m for getting the government OUT of telling rhe sports industry what their self-regulations should or should not say.
It should be up to the NFL period, either way, and it should have the recognized Liberty to decide for itself, either way.
It could even leave it to a vote of each team.
As it is now, there are many other “gay” players in all the major sports. But, in continuation of the self-chosen practice of DADT, they don’t insist on wearing a pink triangle on their shirt lapel. They keep it to themselves and only their closest friends on the team know.
Why? It’s polite, and it works, socially. They get to keep their private life from interfering with their professional relationships on the team.
