Ex-Bears QB Miller: Religion a barrier for gays in locker room

Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim Miller cited religion Tuesday in arguing that an openly gay player would not be welcomed in NFL locker rooms.

“There are some religions that are just not going to accept a gay individual in the locker room,” Miller told "The McNeil and Spiegel Show" on WSCR-AM 670. “So now, are you as an organization going to bring that element into your locker room and think everything is going to be OK?

Even worse, driven by a spiritual disorder.

Nobody sane wants or expects a gummit to ban every single solitary evil thing. It would have to be such a colossal nanny that it would fall all over itself in its own ineptitude (this is not a government of perfected saints we are speaking of, but one of fallen sinners). It can both practically and legitimately ban some broad classes of evils that no reasonable person would disagree with, like murder or thievery, or careless spread of deadly and disfiguring disease.

Government has no business in marriage

So you think government should stop issuing marriage licenses?

NO!

I could care less is what was intended. Couldn’t is what the slow mind replaces it with, not grasping the sarcasm intended. This is an old quip that is just another piece of our culture that has been destroyed by PC news boobs.

Since marriage is YHVH’s institution, the only ‘license’ that is appropriate is his.

Government issuance of a license invites government definition of what marriage is; do you want that?

Anyway, marriage was not the point of my comment. It’s the intrusion of government into interpersonal relationships of any kind that is wrong. I used marriage because it was easily shown that government has no place in it.

Another rotation of the same entity, but I wasn’t aiming at recognition of, but usage of loaded communication, which is what I believe Mr Miller was attempting. He was trying to inform the reporter that they had no dog in the fight.

The two words derive from different roots. Cogent is to be organized and forceful and effective. Cognizant means to perceive and know. Being cognizant helps in some ways of being cogent, but they are not the same thing twisted around.

If you want to know the truth, I couldn’t care less and not only that, I COULD care less what you think, irregardless.

I can see that I am wasting my time on a humorless person without even a modicum of understanding of irony such as yourself. But then, I really COULDN'T care less what you think.
