    So you love and support truth, but don’t like the guy who told the truth about himself?

    The way humans are wired? To be irrationally creeped out at gays? No, that’s just you. Most people have no issue with gays. While I can be pretty certain that a straight guy wouldn’t want to be hit on by a gay guy, there’s no reason anyone should be uncomfortable in a neutral platonic setting. Unless a gay player has done something to make you think he was attracted to you, why would you assume he was? If you’re paranoid that the gay guy is constantly checking you out, you have issues. That’s your problem, not the gay guys problem.

    Actually, all the latest polls show a clear majority of Americans support gay marriage and gay rights in general. The last 4 states where the issue has gone to vote have all voted for gay marriage. The tides have turned.

    I actually agree. If an see how that would make some players uncomfortable. So is it fixed if Michael Sam had lied and said he was straight? Or do all gays just need to be banned?

    And what about just on the streets? If a gay guy checks out a straight guy, he might feel uncomfortable. How do we fix that?

    If Sam does anything inappropriate, he should be disciplined, just like any other player. If other players have some irrational fear that Sam is always checking them out, they need to handle those personal psychological issues on their own.

    So by saying he’s gay (being honest about himself) he will cause the team to fall apart? And the players who brag about who they have sex with in the locker room don’t? If that’s the case the coach really needs to work on team cohesion and discipline, and not blame the gay kid.

    An ex-con who forced dogs to fight and had them killed will not be an issue, but the gender of a player’s partner at home will be awful. I’d say this isn’t too far from the truth, but we shouldn’t just be accepting it. The only way gay players won’t be an issue is to have some openly gay players! The only thing about Michael Sam that should be an issue is how well he plays.

    So true. Race is not something you get to choose. Neither is sexual orientation. And I’ll be honest, I don’t know how you’d respond to that, but I assume you’d just ignore the challenge like everyone else on here has done.

    Re-read the definition. The answer is pretty obvious.

    And what is true about homosexuality? If you’re going to claim something, I hope you can back it up.

    As defined by dictionary.com:
    Prejudiced against or opposed to homosexuality or homosexuals.

    I thought it was pretty self-explanatory…

    Sleazy and Duck:
    Replace “gay” with “black” and you have all the arguments from 50 years ago.

    Nab:
    LOL! Your comments have tons of made-up statistics, but no actual facts. If you have any sources for these numbers, that aren’t from an anti-gay site, I’d live to see. Also disturbing is that you’re not just anti-gay but also fairly racist. I’m not going to bother responding to any of your drivel, just shaking my head at you. If you’d like to post verifiable facts, with sources to back it up, then we can have a conversation. Good day.

    Duck:
    Well I also post on science stories, where many people are ignoring facts. Like with climate change or the Higgs-Boson particle, or evolution. But I enjoy debating with others, and seeing the other side of issues. Again, if you have any arguments to counter mine, I’d love to hear.

    Yes, Sam will be in the news a lot, and it will be mostly about him being gay. It will be an issue his team has to deal with. But you are right, being gay shouldn’t be an issue. But unless we have players who come out, and show the world it really doesn’t matter, it will always be an issue.

  • [-4] July 22, 2014 at 3:22am

    It is an honest comment, and the gay issue will likely be a constant presence on his new team. But that should not be a reason not to bring him on.

  • [-7] July 22, 2014 at 3:21am

    Actually, from everything I’ve seen, it looks like Sam is a very good player. Not the best, but certainly NFL quality. You just don’t like him because he’s gay.

    The fact that there were already women in leadership positions doesn’t negate that verse. I love how you think you can just say you won an expect it to be true. I also live how you have ignored the rest of my argument, and missed my overall point. Please, read through this again, and try to actually read what was written…

    Duck:
    I’m giving you the facts. I’m explaining why the government must recognize gay marriage. You have yet to provide any reasons why this is not the case.

  • July 19, 2014 at 5:01pm

    Duck:
    Take what you just said, replace “women” with “gay” and you basically have our argument.

  • July 19, 2014 at 4:22pm

    Duck:
    No, I’m not convinced. I honestly am not sure exactly what he meant while writing. If I went to 10 different people I’d likely get 10 different interpretations of that passage. Do you realize how many different Christian sects there are? Each one has a different interpretation of the Bible.

    All of your explaining could also be done to explain away the gay verses too.

  • [2] July 19, 2014 at 4:00pm

    Duck:
    I’d be fine with that. But currently, our government does recognize and license marriage, and even provides over 1000 legal benefits for marriage. So we will still be seeking marriage equality.

  • July 19, 2014 at 3:57pm

    Duck:
    Wow! You really gave some great context which does not at all negate the very clear language of that passage. Perhaps you should ask a UCC minister about context with the verses opposing gay sex. I’m sure he could give you an equally long explanation about context for those couple verses.

    You are actually making my main point for me. You can twist the words of the Bible to mean just about anything, you can explain away just about anything. The Bible was written by man, not God anyway. I like the overall message about helping others, and loving God, but wen you get down to these types of details it gets messy and everyone has different opinions.
