That comment from Delegate Burns is hilarious : “I am requesting that you take the necessary action, as a National Football League Owner, to inhibit such expressions from your employees and that he be ordered to cease and desist such injurious actions.” It is not because you’re a filthy scummy bigot that you can rule over everyone and having everything your way Mr. I am quite happy that he got the direct answer for his stupidity.
Hisstory is not going to be kind to the “Delegate Burns” of the world. He will occupy the same chapter as Strom Thurmond, George Wallace, various Ugandan political pariahs, Pat Robertson, Oral Roberts, Phyllis Schafly, Jerry Falwell, etc.
The toothpaste is out of the tube.
I’ve been out since 1968, and I’ve waited a long time for these rights.
I am liking this guy even more every time that I read one of these stories. Good on him and I hope that other NFL players will follow his lead and speak out positively on the matter of same sex, equal marriage!
“I am requesting that you take the necessary action, as a National Football League Owner, to inhibit such expressions from your employees and that he be ordered to cease and desist such injurious actions.” … … … it is imperative that those with religious conviction like that of Delegate Burns, must never be allowed any position of power that does not have the most stringent guidelines to a point of almost strangling that power.These xtians seem to me to be getting even more arrogant in their demands recently. American politics has become, for all and intents and purposes a farce, withe the political hopefuls competing with each other, not to prove that their policies are better then the other dudes, but how christian they are and the changes they will make if ya’ll would jus vote for us, ya’ll, ye hear! We will roll back America and when we get settled in the rest of they heathen world back to the time of Jesus, yall” I paraphrase with what would look to the casual reader,….
….tongue in cheek, but believe you me, these are the type of people that are fighting hard to get into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave at the moment. This is the state of the GOP, the Republican Party of the USA at the present time. The Tea Baggers are in the ascendency in the States and the entire world will rue the day they are elected, should that tragically be the case come the November Elections. If you thought there couldn’t possibly be worse than George W. Bush. I have news for you. A man who wears magic underwear and expects to be given his own planet when he dies, is lets face it, one vote away from becoming the de facto leader of the free world never mind the USA…… The attitude such as that of Burns and the dude who opined that women could turn off becoming pregnant from rape is reinforced by similar conviction in ancient books dictated by illiterate desert goat herds. Mitt Romneys Book of Mormon was dictated by aliens and written on golden plates, IKYN!!
…….and buried in a hillside in upper New York, and “translated” by the illiterate Joseph Smith, by putting a rock in his hat, putting his face in the hat and reading parchment texts that then appeared in the hat in front of his face, while he hid behind a curtain so the scribe mustn’t set eyes on the “plates” This is the basis of Mitt Romneys faith and is what he believes as a Mormon. He wants to ban gays from the military, ban abortion, even for rape, he wants creationism taught in science classes, no women in politics, conscription reinstated, abolish all state sponsored medical plans like Obamacare, Blue Cross, and Medicaid etc. he wants to raise by 30% the lowest rate of tax and to reduce the top rate by 32%….Work it out for yourself. This is the crowd that are within a hairs breadth of winning the American elections in November…….
