WALSH: If You Want to Prove You Don’t Hate Gays, All You Have to Do is Worship at Their Feet

Have you heard what’s been going on with Coach Tony Dungy?   A reporter asked him about Michael Sam, who is the first openly gay player drafted into the NFL. Coach Dungy by saying:

“I wouldn’t have [drafted] him. Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.  It’s not going to be totally smooth … things will happen.”

But the reaction to this statement was swift and condemning.  Blogger Matt Walsh wrote about it in a piece called “If You Want to Prove You Don’t Hate Gays, All You Have to Do is Worship at Their Feet.”  He says he believes Dungy’s response was perfectly reasonable and widely held.  (Of course, there’s this.  Sam wasn’t taken until the 7th round.)  Walsh writes:

Notice, Dungy never said that he hates Sam because of his sexuality, nor did he say that Sam shouldn’t be in the NFL. In fact, he said the opposite. Dungy’s position is very clear. Sam is a mediocre talent and a marginal prospect. He’s too slow to be a linebacker and too small to be a defensive end. He doesn’t have the athleticism to be a starter, and he may very well lack the talent to make the squad. At best, Michael Sam will see the field for kickoffs and punts, and that will be it.

Is an unspectacular player worth the media circus that will follow? Would any coach in their right mind relish the thought of being accused of bigotry if Sam has to be cut to make room for better players? Does any football organization want to be tossed into the middle of a ‘gay rights’ fight when their only concern is winning football games? One poor team answered ‘yes’ to these questions, but 31 did not. Tony Dungy echoed the sentiments of the 31 teams — the sane ones.

Michael Sam isn’t very good but he is a self-congratulatory pseudo-’equal rights’ champion who loves the attention and does not hesitate to throw homophobia accusations around.  This is the guy who was fortunate to be picked at all, but instead of showing gratitude, he immediately complained that he wasn’t drafted high enough, in an obvious attempt to insinuate that he’s the victim of unfair bias. This is the guy who cut a deal to star in a documentary during training camp, and hid the agreement from the NFL until after the draft. This is the man who went out of his way to announce his sexual proclivities to the world, and then starred in a commercial where he claimed that he only wants to be judged for what he does on the field.

This dude is on a crusade, and it’s got nothing to do with making the playoffs and bringing home the Lombardi Trophy. He’s not worth the trouble, not by a longshot. Any rational person can see that, and Tony Dungy is a rational person.

Progressives, however, are not. That’s why Dungy’s remarks have been met with a furor as repulsive as it is predictable. Tony Dungy never criticized Sam’s sexual preference, but he did take a position that diverges from the liberal narrative, and now he is being punished severely for it.

How you ask?  Well, leftists began criticizing him… BY MAKING FUN OF HIS SON’S SUICIDE.  I won’t repeat those tweets here.  But Walsh goes on to say that leftists began to lecture Coach Dungy about…  wait for it… civil rights.  Matt helpfully points out that Coach Dungy is black, while his would-be sermonizers are white guys.  He writes that the comparison is not fair, no matter what color you are:

Now, if I wanted to explain why you can’t compare pre-civil rights blacks to modern gays, I might point out the dramatic disparity in how the two groups were treated. I might say that black people went from being used like farm animals to being ‘freed’ but still deprived of their most essential human rights and most basic protections under the law.  I might point out that gays are not subject to that kind of oppression, and to insist otherwise is to demonstrate a complete lack of integrity or sanity. I might tell you that a black man could be hung from a tree without legal repercussion, whereas a gay man in modern times can’t even be refused a wedding cake without the full weight of the justice system coming down upon the offending baker.

I might go a step further and explain that blacks are a people. A culture. A race. A heritage. Black is part of their identity, by any measure. Physically, genetically, socially, culturally. Homosexuals, on the other hand, are not a race. They are not a people. They are people, individually, but they are not an actual community as a whole. There is no ‘gay heritage.’ They are not any different physically or genetically. You are gay because of your sexual activities, whereas you are black because that’s who you are. The two are not analogous, they are not similar, they are not in the same vein, they are not comparable. They are two completely different things. Just as I am not in a ‘straight community’ or part of a ‘straight culture’ or a member of a ‘straight lineage,’ neither are gays. My people are not heterosexuals. I do not have a shared ancestry with straights, nor does our straightness align us in any deep or meaningful way. Your sexual proclivity is different from your ethnicity, just as it is different from your religion or your gender.

What do you guys think about this controversy?  Walsh goes on to explain that Coach Dungy was right — in fact, even his very limited comment about the player caused a media frenzy.  This is how Walsh concludes his very interesting piece, by saying that there is a cultural divide that no one can escape:

So Dungy was right, which is why he’s now hated.

This is how the game will be played.

Get ready for it.

You’re either with them or against them.

    I hate to think just how far Gays might go!

    • Andrew Matako

      If they don’t stand up for what’s right and voice there opinions then how do they expect a change? I’d admire someone fighting for what they want changed the someone sitting around complaining about it. Whether your for or against it, it’s there choice to do whatever they want, not the governments, not yours and not mine….Ron Paul said it best.

      • Nat J

        ^^this comment could go for Tony Dungy and his statement too…or does it just go for the gays?? You are trying to appear logical, but it sounds like we are a bit biased.

        • Andrew Matako

          If this is what he truly believe then yes, stand up for your beliefs but what I don’t agree with is that it’s plain as day what he was referring to in his comments, his sexuallity and then they go on to defend him stating that it was because of his performance and because he was a 7th round draft pick. We all know that’s not the truth. If you’re going to say it then own it. Why would she post her opinion on this, share the authors opinion and then blame the liberal media for talking about it. If anyone knows about stories in the media, the Palins do, if you continue to talk about it then it’s going to continue to be in the media.

          • Cbb

            True. The coach’s comment was about the players sexuality. Not his performance. To claim
            It was anything else and then cry victim is wrong.

          • willie

            I must have missed something. When did T Dungy claim it was about performance. That was the writer wasnt it. Liberals are always looking for something to accuse someone of, hating gays, blacks, women, children, dogs, come on give it a break. You guys must be the intolerant ones if that stuff is always on your mind.

          • muckeypuck

            you obviously didnt read the article. Why would a coach base their picks on when a player gets drafted? seems like if you want a player because hes a 3rd round draft pick, you came to the party too late

          • Doug Peterson

            Dungy’s comments were about Sam’s sexuality only with respect to how much of a media circus it was going to cause. He didn’t say there was anything wrong with Sam’s sexuality; he simply said it was going to cause a lot of headaches and be a major distraction – which is a simple statement of fact – and he wouldn’t want to deal with all of that, especially over a 7th round pick.
            The left simply cannot handle simple factual observations and statements of fact.

          • Cbb

            Really? Where does he mention ” media circus” ?

          • willie

            When he said he wouldnt want to deal with all of it. Media circus is always an issue with stuff like this. Does it all have to be spelled out for you

          • Cvb

            Who says by ” it” he meant media circus? He could have meant reactions from the team, other coaches, etc.

          • jen

            Apparently so!

        • willie

          Tony Dungy was ask a question and he answered it honestly. For some reason the media wants to ask questions but they do not like it when the answer is not what they wanted. Besides, all he said was that he would not want to deal with all the problems it would bring. That is just the way it is, right or wrong. We need more honesty and less political correctness. liberals are for freedom of speech as long as the speech is what they want to hear.

    • Cbb

      Yes, how dare they ask for equality!

  • Andrew Matako

    I expected more of you….Your thoughts on this are just alarming to me. I’m going to free pass this one and blame it on your upbringing.

    • Vb

      Who are you referring to? The blog writer or Bristol?

      • Andrew Matako

        Honestly, both.

        • Cbb

          I won’t fault Bristol to much on it. I’d be surprised if she even reads this blog

          • Jiggery Potpourri

            Or reads.

  • Nat J

    This is such a true post. The LGBT community is searching out people to be offended by. It isnt about their rights anymore…they wish to have the right to deny others their individual rights. Not everyone is going to be in favor of homosexuals and the drama the majority intentionally brings everywhere they go. They fight for what they want they changed…that’s for sure. What they want changed is the minds and consciences of every person who sees things differently than they do. And they will raise hell if anyone doesnt go with their flow.

    • Vb

      ” Not everyone is going to be in favor of homosexuals”. What is that even supposed to mean????? And FYI the majority of them do not bring drama everywhere they go.

      Where do you get this stuff?

      • muckeypuck

        it means not everyone is going to tolerate difference. it is what it is. get over it

        • Cbb

          Not everyone is going to tolerate others being different than they are? Well sorry, we don’t have to get over that. And this is why we have laws. So that such intolerance is unacceptable. Sure, people might still remain bigoted, but the message will be that that’s not okay. And before you know it the vast majority will wonder why this was even an issue.

          • Old School

            You seem to be pretty intolerable of anyone who believes different than you. If a person’s faith teaches them that homosexuality is a sin, and that/those person/people refuse to condone homosexuality, why are they wrong? The supreme law of the land specifically gives us freedom of religion, I have not read anywhere in it that gives specific freedom of sexual orientation, so why would their rights not specified trump my rights that are specified?

          • Cvb

            James no one is requiring you or even asking you to be homosexual. Nor engage in homosexual acts. Just because your religion says its wrong does not mean it is for others.

          • Old School

            I am simply saying that you want the religious right to be tolerable of gays and respect them, then the gays also need to be tolerable of the religious right and respect them. It appears that anyone on the right who has conservative or religious views are criticized by those less religious or conservative for voicing their views. I am not intolerable I just have my view and should be able to voice them without being bashed as a homophobe, racist, bigot etc…

          • Frige

            James if by ” voicing” your religious opposition to homosexuality means denying rights to homosexuals, then no, we don’t have to tolerate that. And you have probably noticed that the growing majority of people don’t think it’s okay for you to be disrespectful or derogatory to homosexuals .

            And sorry, but if you express a homophobic or bigoted view, then that’s what you’ll be called.

          • Nat J

            Tony stated his opinion. Look how he was bashed. Was he supposed to lie? They asked him a question, he respectfully answered. Look how the airlines was treated after it asked a lesbian couple to stop with the overt PDA. They would have asked a straight couple the same thing, and it wouldnt have made the news. But no, it was a gay couple, therefore they are being discriminated against and need to let the whole world know. This whole thing is disgustingly one sided.

          • muckeypuck

            them not tolerating others is what makes them different from you. practice what you preach and be tolerant

          • Cvb

            That’s not very clear muckeypuck. Care to rephrase what you are trying to say?

          • muckeypuck

            “So that such intolerance is unacceptable”

            You say that difference should be tolerated, yet here is this group of people who are different than you and you say we shouldn’t accept them for it. just a little bit hypocritical, yea?

          • Cvb

            You aren’t different from me. You believe differently . And you’re entitled to that belief. You just can’t expect everyone to share it.

          • muckeypuck

            it’s weird cause that’s exactly what i am saying to you about your beliefs. You are suggesting we use the force of government to get people to conform to your beliefs on tolerance. surely, you are reasonable enough to see how it is hypocritical of you to be telling me i can’t expect everyone to share my views.

          • Cvb

            Force the government? We elect the people who make the laws. They eventually will make the laws that the majority want passed. Like legalization of gay marriage. You may not like that, but the law does not mean that you have to go out and marry someone of your own sex. Heck, it doesn’t even mean you can’t believe gay marriage is wrong if that’s what your religion tells you. Just know that’s your beliid, not everyone and not even the majority any longer

          • muckeypuck

            First, you don’t know what my views are so it’s not appropriate for you to declare them in the minority. WE can agree on race issues without agreeing on the best way to solve them, do you agree?

            do you know why we are a republic? To prevent the exact thing you are describing above, the tyranny of the majority.

      • Lawrence

        Personal experience maybe?! “Not everyone is going to be in favor of homosexuals” means just that. They are not for gay marriage or any other gay “rights”. Everything Nat J just said is true. If you don’t believe that then you are seriously delusional.

        • Cbb

          The quote was ” homosexuals” . So what exactly does not being in favor of them mean? That you don’t like them? That you hate them? That they repulse you? That you are afraid of them? That you don’t think they should have the same rights as you? Well, sorry that’s too bad. Because they should and they are getting them more and more all the time. So just get used to it. They are just like you and me. They just make love differently. Well, maybe not even that actually.

          • Nat J

            Homosexuality. Happy?

    • BuckTard

      Its all about the drama now. It always HAS been.

      • Cbb

        No. It’s about equality

        • Montjoie

          No, it’s drama.

      • jen

        True, unfortunately.

  • Angel Eyes

    Evidentlly 31 teams agree with Tony Dungy.

  • Scott Van Tussenbrook

    ” I might tell you that a black man could be hung from a tree without legal repercussion, whereas a gay man in modern times can’t even be refused a wedding cake without the full weight of the justice system coming down upon the offending baker.”

    This is an unfair, apples-to-oranges comparison. You can’t take what was common for one group in the 1940’s and compare it with the situation of a different group today.

    If a black man in modern times was refused a wedding cake because of his race, that baker would receive the exact same weight of the justice system “coming down” on him.

    • muckeypuck

      depending on where you stood on trayvon martin, you might see the 1940’s date as quaint if incredibly naive.

      • Scott Van Tussenbrook

        I picked a random pre-Civil Rights Act decade. My point remains. You can’t refuse to provide services to someone based on their race (nor based on their religion, I’d like to point out). Nor can you refuse to provide service to someone simply because they’re gay. Comparing how bad it was for Black people “back in the day” with how easy it is for gays today is intellectually dishonest.

        • adeathnote

          Actually… you can. It’s called a private business, its called freedom of speech. It’s called personal opinion. There are lots of people with opinions and beliefs that I believe are wrong… however, that’s their right. Unless you are refusing someone the right to be free, you have the right to do as you please. If a baker won’t make you a damn cake, guess what? Go to a different baker. A free market will take care of the baker not wanting to serve people… or it won’t.

          • jen

            Well said!

  • EOlson

    Scott Van Tussenbrook You sir are an idiot! Re-read the article, it was stated you CAN’T compare the two,but makes valid points. Now go back and read U.S. History and about slavery. Then come back and tell us when gays were ever denied civil rights or deprived of human rights.

    • K BS

      Denied rights? My nephew and his partner don’t have rights to each other’s social security benefits should one of them die. My husband and I do.

      • StandProudNow

        “Then come back and tell us when gays were ever denied civil rights or deprived of human rights.”

        Please learn to read before posting.

        But the thing is, WHY does sexual orientation even BELONG in a football team?

        • Cvb

          It shouldn’t. But how do you think players and coaches and others would/ do react if/when a player us openly gay?

      • Montjoie

        So what? Lots of people don’t have rights to other people’s benefits.

        • Cvb

          Really? Lots of married people don’t? Really?

      • Tommy Lee

        Oh, yeah, that’s right up there with slavery. Social security benefits to one’s partner is not a fundamental human right, it’s a financial perk.

        • 1MiddleRoader

          I agree that it’s not up there with slavery. Most things aren’t. But that doesn’t invalidate it as a cause. Disabled people fought for accessible buildings, etc. They would not die if denied a wheelchair ramp, but I’m sure glad that laws were passed that allow them to have them.

    • Josh Shapiro

      Hopw about when it was legal to terminate a gay person from their employment (oh wait, it actually still is) What gets me is these ignorant Christian people who profess love but have no qualms in terms of denying people their rights and regulating them to second-class citizenship, all in the name of religion (which they know little about). But more importantly, why is anyone concerned with what Bristol Palin has to say?

  • K BS

    I’d say Bristol shouldn’t be writing about things with which she has no experience. Gay people aren’t a community, they aren’t a people? How about you go to gay bingo, Bristol? Or a gay bar? Do you not realize there’s a whole “language” in the gay community about which you apparently know nothing? Perhaps you should visit the gayborhood in LA, San Francisco or Philly and tell me there’s no community.

    There was no reason for you to write this column, Bristol, except gay-bashing. Leave my nephew and his friends alone and stick to bible-thumping.

    • StandProudNow

      Gay Bingo, eh?
      That really sums it up. Can’t we just have “Bingo”?
      Who gives a rip!!

      • Cbb

        Eventually we will! Just like we eventually will just have marriage. Exactly…. Who gives a rip!

      • adeathnote

        Sums it up for me. I could honestly care less what people do. Sexual libertarian. However, why do you have to tell me about it? I happen to be straight, but i don’t tell anyone. Why does anyone feel like they need to come out? Maybe I just don’t get it… but it’s none of my business what people do… So don’t tell me.

    • Cbb

      Oh It’s pretty safe bet that the middle aged woman who writes this stuff has little knowledge or experience in the gay community!!! And yes, it is just more bible thumping and misplaced cries of victimhood

      • Richard

        I rather experience bible thumping than nasty homosexual thumping.

        • Cvb

          I would suspect by the same token, homosexuals could call our heterosexual ” thumping” nasty. In actuality the sexual acts practiced by heterosexuals and homosexuals aren’t that different and crossover. The difference is that one is same sex and the other not.

          • jen

            Whoa! I’ve been misinformed. Sexual acts aren’t that different???? With heterosexuals the pieces fit where they’re supposed to……. with homosexuals, not so much!

          • Cvb

            Jen, maybe you need to do some research.

      • willie

        VICTIMHOOD! that is what is all about when it comes to gays, always the victim even when their not.

        • Cvb

          Oh I’d say when people lose their jobs for being gay, are turfed from the military, are denied the same benefits straight couples are given,… That’s being victimized. What would you call it?

      • Josh Shapiro

        Before the gays, it was Communists, before then the Blacks, the Jews, the Catholics, etc. Christianity is all about finding a scapegoat/bogeyman and running with it while portraying themselves as innocent vidtims , who how dare anyone attempt to trample on their supposed superiority. In two decades it’ll be the Muslims. My only hope is that us gays never forget the animosity and prejudice thrust upon us and always remain vigilant against such groups.

    • Richard

      You don’t have to experience anything about the homosexual “community” to know it’s an abomination.

      • Cvb

        Well Richard, maybe one day you’ll have someone close to you teach you otherwise. That’s usually how people change their minds and hearts on this.

  • margyt

    Sarah led me to Bristol who led me to Matt and then led me back to Bristol. What a great journey through thoughtful commentary. It is well past time to get civil and allow free expression of ideas again without vitriolic retaliation. I have observed that the vitriol is a tool that is pulled out when the arguments against what has been said are weak. If you don’t have anything to say, just say it louder and angrier. Then you win. But not with me.

  • Jayne Finch

    Bristol has it right. I agree with everything she says. But don’t expect the homosexuals and those that agree with that lifestyle to get it. They have been given over to a debased mind.

    “Tolerance” is a two-way street… I respect your right to have your opinions, as long as you respect my right to have mine. Anything less than that – e.g., insisting that others share your opinion – is INtolerance.

  • 4Commencefiring4

    Isn’t it interesting how, once upon a time, the gay community–all 2% of the population, according to a recent CDC study–having been subject to persecution and abuse by the straight world, just wanted to be left alone to live their lives as they saw fit. And today, that’s all the rest of us–the other 98%–want to do; but they won’t leave us alone.

    • Cvb

      ” Left alone”??? Well yes, I suppose that’s better than being beaten and killed for bring homosexual. But that doesn’t mean that they now shouldn’t expect equal rights.

      By the way, how are homosexuals not leaving you alone exactly?

      • 4Commencefiring4

        How? By not tolerating their political opposition–in fact, not allowing anyone to continue their employment or enjoy any peace in their lives should they hold personal views contrary to those of the gay lobby. It’s not enough that we leave them be. No, no. We have to salute their flag, encourage and affirm them, give them pats on the back, participate in parades in honor of them, and teach our children to do the same. Dissent? Not on your life.

        THAT’S how.

        • Cvb

          Salut their flag? Participate in their parades? No you don’t have to do these things. That’s nonsense. Encourage them? How do you encourage them to be homosexual? How do you encourage someone to be heterosexual? More nonsense.

          Sorry you don’t think that they are entitled to the same rights you and I enjoy as heterosexuals, but they are.

          • 4Commencefiring4

            You know exactly what I mean, and everyone else does, too. Don’t be ridiculous. How many times in the last five years has anyone in the public eye been accused of “homophobia” for not aligning himself with and endorsing the gay agenda? Sports figures, broadcasters, politicians, religious figures, you name it…if they don’t get with the program, they are vilified all day long.

            Many have lost jobs, not for actively persecuting gays, but for merely expressing a personal view contrary to what homosexuals want to hear. Just this week, Tony Dungy was set upon by the gay Mafia and their water-carriers for his remark that he probably wouldn’t have recruited Michael Sam–and he didn’t even mention his sexual preference. Just the notion that Dungy would not have wanted all the drama associated with having him on the team was enough to get him dragged down into a controversy he didn’t want. And this despite the fact that he didn’t even turn Sam down–just the fact that he said he likely would have. He was NOT PERMITTED to even say such a thing without becoming a target of gay vitriol.

            And that’s what I mean. Tell me that doesn’t happen.

          • Cvb

            That’s a far cry from your claim of being forced to go to parades and salute flags.

            What’s the gay agenda? Oh right…. Equal rights. Nuff said.
            And no it’s not okay to deny that to homosexuals or to discriminate.

            And some people have lost jobs recently for saying derogatory things about gays or discriminating? Boo hoo. Have you given any thought to all the people who have lost jobs in the past for being gay? Have you?

          • 4Commencefiring4

            Okay, I thought my reference to “flags” and “parades” would not confuse you, but clearly I gave you unjust credit. So let’s try that part again:

            “Salute flag” meant to agree with the entire gay agenda. And since you asked what that is, I’ll try to be clear about that, too. The agenda boils down to indoctrinating the nation–especially children–that homosexuals live a perfectly normal life; that two men or two women constitute “parents”; that schools should devote time to spelling out–for even elementary age kids–the glories and joys of the gay life; that if a boy finds girls to be “yucky”–as most young boys have for generations–that he’s to be pulled aside and told that being gay is okay; making sure the media promotes the gay life in TV and movies and magazines; and seeing that anyone with public exposure is punished who says anything gays don’t like–like being opposed to gay marriage.

            It’s not enough for gays to simply take up the cause to enact gay marriage and make their case. No, they have to vilify and demonize and shame those who oppose them, like the left is so practiced at doing. It’s the same old Alinsky tactic Obama has excelled at using.

            Then there’s the “bakery” tactic: go to a baker who is known to hold religious views that oppose homosexuality and demand that he bake you a wedding cake. Then sue him when he refuses and ruin his business.

            Respect others’ religious rights? Just go to a gay-friendly baker because you’ve got a wedding to plan, and there’s no time for this?

            Naah. “There’s someone in town who won’t comply. Let’s get him.”

            That’s the “agenda” in a nutshell.

            Now for “parades.” I said “participate in their parades”, meaning to endorse the content and purpose of gay pride parades, shame companies who decline to be a sponsor of them, vilify other companies (Chic-Fil-A, anyone?) who give money to causes opposed to the gay lobby, etc. That’s forced “participation.”

            You cite your “rights”, but have no respect for the rights of others to express dissent. No one is firing you if you’re gay; but try NOT cheering for the gay “agenda” (see above if you’ve forgotten already) and you’re out of work.

          • Frige

            Actually, people have been fired for being gay .

            And that whole gay agenda you are talking about it really still just about equal rights. And FYI, homosexual couples do lead perfectly normal lives ( well, as much as heterosexuals do) and constitute parents. Schools do not teach the glories and joy of ” gay life” any more than they do straight life. Similarly they do not encourage children to be gay any more than they encourage them to be straight. Same goes for movies, books, etc…..

            And sorry you feel hard done by when it’s no longer considered okay to express your personal anti-gay thoughts. And when. You run a business that supports groups working against equal rights for homosexuals. Glad you brought up Chik Fil A. That was a good example of how far public opinion has come in recent years.

          • 4Commencefiring4

            No one has the “right” to compel others to agree with them about their sexual preferences and practices any more than they have the “right” to compel others to plant sunflowers or “buy American.” What you want to do in your bedroom is your business, but my opinion of it is not.

            As to “normal lives”, sorry to break the bad news, but according to virtually every study ever done, gay men have more sexual partners in a lifetime, by orders of magnitude, than heterosexual males. The STD disease rate is compounded accordingly (as Cuomo’s current push to know the number of gays in NY attests). The Red Cross doesn’t screen out gay males for nothing.

            As to “parents”, your view is that two men can provide all the needed emotional input a child who has both a mother and father can provide, which contradicts virtually everything family psychologists have claimed since the memory of man runneth not to the contrary. If that were not so, then “absentee fathers” and “motherless children” would not be a cause of social ills. Every child needs a mother and a father; you did; I did. Don’t give me the “two Dads are equal to a Mom and a Dad” bit. No one’s buying it. When a child needs his Mom, Dad just won’t do; and vice versa. You might as well say a molly bolt is just as good as a roofing nail to attach shingles.

            Schools: I guess you never head of “Heather Has Two Mommies” and other “let’s all celebrate gay!” themes in our educational system. What planet do you come from? This is old news on Earth.

            Business: companies and company owners support causes of all kinds, some of which you support and some you wouldn’t. Starbucks supports abortions; I don’t. So I find coffee elsewhere. Ben & Jerry’s are owned by two leftists. So I buy other brands. Chik-Fil-A supports traditional marriage, so instead of just taking your business elsewhere, you would demonize CFA and not let them contribute their own money as they see fit.

            And THAT’S what I’m taking about. You want “equal rights”? How about letting others enjoy their own?

          • Cvb

            Sorry, but the support given to gay marriage by the American Academy of Pedeatrics pretty much blows your view of same sex parents out of the water.

            And good for the schools recognizing homosexuality, gay marriage and gay parents just as they do for heterosexuals. That is nothing more than equality.

          • 4Commencefiring4

            So pediatricians–child doctors–are now marriage experts? How fascinating. Perhaps we can get electrical engineers to weigh in on soil conservation or ancient Egyptian burial rites.

            How would you feel if education experts started trying to look into pedophilia in an effort to understand them? After all, that’s a “sexual preference”, isn’t it? Would it surprise you to know that already there are college professors–mostly overseas at this point–who are actually arguing the case for pedophilia?

            Well, that’s just Europe. That’ll never happen here. Huh.

          • Cvb

            Pediatricians are experts on what’s best for children. Hence their support for gay marriage. Maybe you’ll want to read up on their position.

            Pedophilia is not between consenting adults. But sure, you keep going down that path….. As for college professors in Eirope arguing for pedophilia, I’d like to see a reference for this.

          • 4Commencefiring4

            http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/stephenbrown/professors-for-pedophilia/

            So what about “consenting adults”? In times past, when plain old hetero fornication was frowned upon, there were those who warned of a slippery slope to homosexuality if fornication was approved, and it was argued, “Fornication isn’t between two guys.” Yet that barrier has fallen.

            So draw your line wherever you like, but it’s going to fall, too. If you think that’s progress, then I disagree.

          • 1MiddleRoader

            The slippery slope goes both ways. First, gay people, then single parents, then non-Chrirstians, then atheists, etc. Also, I happen to still frown upon plain old hetero fornication. But I don’t want to make it illegal.

          • Cvb

            If they are both consenting adults, then it’s not pedophilia. So what are you trying to say?

          • 4Commencefiring4

            I’m saying that your objection to pedophilia holds sway today with the general public, but that tomorrow it may not–just as yesterday’s objection to homosexuals was generally accepted then, and is being shouted down now. In other words, be careful what you wish for. You’re not the only “alternative sexual preference” in the book. What you think couldn’t possibly happen is already on deck.

          • 4Commencefiring4

            Child doctors are now marriage experts. Good to know. Perhaps architects can next advise us on crab fishing.

            Did you know there are academics who defend pedophilia? Read this and get back to me:

          • kanimit

            see my other reply to you about those equal rights

  • llkenney

    Excellent blog. I refuse to be intimidated by a very small minority of people who basically want to bully those who don’t worship at their feet. If this small minority want to call me a homophobe, so be it. I will not submit.

    • Cvb

      Small minority? Worship at their feet? Where do you get this. The majority supports equal rights for homosexuals . And equality is not worship.

      • llkenney

        You miss the point. If you DARE say you don’t agree with ANYTHING they say, you’re immediately a homophobe or intolerant, or, as this blog states, hateful. I support equal rights for everybody but don’t support changing the definition of marriage. I don’t go public with my sex life and don’t want or need to hear about others’ either. AND, I have homosexual friends but they don’t feel the need to publicize and politicize their sexuality…good for them!!! MATURE individuals with no hidden agenda.

        • Cvb

          Easy for us to not say much about our sexuality given that we have equal rights. Won’t it be great when homosexuals can be that way too? Almost there.

          • whatstheuse

            “Tell me about yourself” implies you asked them a question and wanted to know? I don’t remember anyone asking Sam about his sexual preference? He shared that info on his own!

          • Cvb

            We are still at a point where in certain areas ( geographical and otherwise), there is still discrimination against homosexuals. Football would be one example. Having NFL and college athletes “come out” can help improve the situation.

          • 1MiddleRoader

            You don’t think Michael Sam was ever asked a “tell me about yourself” type of question? Sexual orientaton is hard to keep secret, unless you make the conscious effort to do. Sam apparently felt the need to do in the past, and now he doesn’t. I would be perfectly fine if he had chosen to come out in a less public manner. For example, I think it would have been hilarious if he had taken his boyfriend to a public event, and when the media thought it had a scoop, he’d have said, “Oh, you didn’t know?” But I think the perception would be that he’d been outed, and he wanted to get ahead of the media spotlights, and yes, maybe he also wanted to make a public point.

          • kanimit

            Homosexuals already have the same rights

          • Cvb

            Bibo, only very recently did our government start making moves to legalize gay marriage and require equal rights to homosexuals and outlaw discrimination…..

          • kanimit

            if if you’re a guy you can marry a woman if you’re a woman you can marry a guy we have the same rights

          • Cvb

            Homosexuals should have the same right. And they do now in this country. More and more.

        • 1MiddleRoader

          There is a difference between going public w/your sexuality, and going public w/your sex life. You may not realize it, but you go public with your sexuality all the time. For example, if someone meets you and says “Tell me about yourself,” you might say, “I’m married, with 3 kids” (or whatever your situation is). No one would reply, “Whoa, I don’t wanna hear about your sex life!”.

          • Cvb

            Exactly Middleroader. Exactly.

          the secret is to DARE! i dare, stand up to it…it’s your RIGHT to disagree, in their face if need be… who cares what they call you…sticks and stones…… dare to be bold

        • Josh Shapiro

          “public with my sex life,” so therefore I presume your marital status is top secret. Nobody is going into details about their bedroom life, you just can’t adjust that a group marginalized in the past is no longer acceptance of second class citizenship and cut into your slice of the hegemony pie. And yes, you are a homophobe, and if you don’t want to be labeled as such, don’t slander people with baseless arguments. If there are gay people out there who know of your views and consider themselves to be your friends, they must be quite self-loathing.

      • kanimit

    It’s ok to use the word retard. Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter use it all the time and your mom never came out against it.

      You obviously have serious issues that you should seek help for.

      Her brother’s name is Trig, and he has Downs Syndrome. Your comments demonstrate all the things we know that lefties like you are all about, hate, ignorance, intolerance, and pettiness.

      Your comment about that Special Olympics is right up there with Obama’s
      ignorant bigoted comment about the Special Olympics, no need to comment further on that.

      You should spend some time with Down’s Syndrome children. You might then find out what love and humanity are all about. Perhaps somewhere in the dark cold recesses of your heart, you might even find that you, yes even you, have some form of humanity.

Clearly people with limited mental capacity or physical limitations need accommodations. Why is it okay to cruelly and heartlessly attack innocents (children and women), but it’s not okay to vent disagreement about homosexuality?

  • 1MiddleRoader

    First, let me say, I’m glad the blog enabled commenting. Second, I know nothing about sports, so I won’t comment on the Dungy controversy except to say that anyone who makes fun of the suicide of someone’s son is despicable (altho I’m not sure how Bristol and Walsh know they’re leftists…) But I did go to Walsh’s blog and it’s pretty over-the-top. “I’ve never known a faith more eager to burn heretics at the stake. Even a fundamentalist Iranian Muslim would flinch if he came face to face with a western liberal’s rigid dogmatism…. liberals have burrowed right into the heart of America and gone to work subverting and perverting our civilization at its most foundational level.” I mean, really??? But I really disagree with his definition of culture/community. Are not Christians a community? They do not necessarily have a shared heritage. They are not physically or genetically different than non-Christians. I work with special needs children; they are a community. Any common element can make a community, which overlaps with other community. My special needs kids are a community, but they’re also part of their families, their school communities, their religious community, their neighborhood community, etc. etc.

  • Daniel Hoffman

    What he said is fact…The other 30 or so coaches have no balls if they won’t back him in this…You will find that Michel Sam has learned like so many others how to turn his medeocher talent into gold..He plays well he’s good he plays badly and he’s still good…All because of fear of being labeled a homophobe..Works every time nowadays..Also those of you who would attack a child with a disability and his mother should be strung up by yer collective gonads..

  • Liz

    This article is right on the money. Dungy is the only one with nerve to say it. Sam brings limited talent maybe not even worthy an NFL contract. What Sam will inevitably bring is a shit storm of distraction and crap when he eventually plays the gay card. It is only a matter if time. Sorry Dungy, hopefully more class acts step forward.

    Hirogen you are a sick person. Karma is a bitch and I hope you get a double dose.

    Michael Sam was an SEC defensive player of the year, led the lead in sacks and tackles, and was a consensus All American. He was top ten in forced fumbles, points, and return yards off an interception, and was one of the most dominant defensive players in college football. This notion that Sam does not deserve to be drafted in the first two rounds is absurd. Every SEC defensive player of the year since 2003 was drafted in the first two rounds. If all coaches cared about was winning football games, Michael Sam is a clear first round draft pick. People have praised his play because of how good he is, and his statistics back that up. He forced a fumble in the Cotton Bowl to win the game for Mizzou. Don’t downplay Michael Sam’s football ability off of nothing but his sexuality and actually look at his track record.

    • kanimit

      Apparently this coach disagrees, it’s his call. If this person(Michael) is too controversial he should also be dumped and play something else or do something else. I certainly wouldn’t care what the squealers say.

  • Margie Prine

    No human should worship at anyone’s feet. That honor is for our Heavenly Father. I do hope that Bristol is as humbled and repentant of her sin of fornicating before marriage as she is with the fact that homosexual sin. This sad fact means that her son has to grow up without a legitimate dad. This is the same problem that homosexuals have, with having children, with sinful sex. Therefore, it is difficult for her to be an authority on this subject, although i appreciate her trying to better herself.

    Bristol. your logic is as flawed as your mother’s. You would do best to shut your mouth and stick to the lies you are best at, like conceiving children out of wedlock, espousing social bigotry, and claiming you have a “right” to harass, employ, and terminate people based on their sexuality. Whatever cloak or guise you choose to obscure your hateful, and hypocritical bigotry leaves the final conclusion that you are a bigot who holds herself above those who don’t adhere to YOUR credentialing, whatever that pile of muck may encompass. And no one buys your mother’s argument that her “gay” friends are tired of the politically correct thought police. That is both illogical, comical, and an abounding lie, and absolutely detached from any reality the rest of us see and experience . But, that is the mud that the Palin clan feels most at home in. I suggest you remain there, little piggy girl. You’re clearly out of your league.

    • Marie Scott

      David Becker; how is conceiving a child out of wedlock a lie?? That’s such a complete ad hominem attack I don’t even know where to begin!

At least we can admit our mistakes and move on.

But sir, I cannot stand idly by while a fellow person is so maliciously attacked. If you would kindly censor your thoughts before someone else does it for you, that would be most welcome.
          After all, what is said in front of a computer screen can hurt just as much as being said in person and a child’s origin is no fault of the child, as she so stated it was a mistake that she felt bore wondrous results. You sir, are so horrible that I don’t have extreme enough words to describe the bad taste in my mouth that I get when reading your vile thoughts.

          • David Becker

            Are YOU the thought police now that someone has less than favorable views of adulteresses, bastard children, reckless fornication, and values that grossly contradict what the “Christian” Palins espouse. Freedom of speech works in all directions, and a spade will be called a spade. Thanks for your thoughts.

          • Bjorn Loney

            And Judge not lest ye be judged works both ways as well. No, I am not the thought police, and I support Freedom of Speech, but just as I stood up for people that were bullied at school, so I will stand up to the bullies in cyberspace. Being aware of other people and their feelings can be a much better use of time and building bridges to try to understand rather than blow up the bridges. Besides, the language you use is vile. Absolutely, utterly vile. Instead of using the term you used, while maybe correct, I don’t know because I don’t spend that much time delving into the personal lives of people I have never met, you could have used illegitimate. Would still have meant the same thing, but would have been a far different tone to your message.
            And the excuse, a spade will be called a spade, was something I heard growing up espoused by those of the Ku Klux Klan. In reference to calling a black man or black woman a dog, or a dog in heat deserving of being roughly used. If you want to use that phrase, that is one of the memories you may invoke in someone else. Now, is that what you intended? Likely not. See how using simple phrases can cause unintentional misunderstandings? That is one small example of knowing how things may impact other people and couching your language and terminology in such a manner as to get something across without being so crude.

            Since freedom of speech works in all directions, then why is Bristol being shamed by you for exercising her freedom. You are right it does go both ways, not just your way, a lesson everyone should learn.

      • Bjorn Loney

        Marie, ignore him. Hopefully enough ignoring will cause a troll to stop being a troll.

    • Shelley Fitzsimmons

      I always find it comical when people take the time to comment on someones blog which they obviously hate. So you don’t like Bristol and her Mother….I am pretty sure they don’t care, and why you waste your valuable time keeping tabs on them is beyond me. Now, tell me again…who is the idiot, here?

    • Cvb

      In Bristol’s defense, she didn’t write this . Though she does allow her name to be associated with it……

  • Marie Scott

    Bristol; ignore the haters! This was an excellent post! I also learned a lot about the player in question, because I was unaware of his athletic abilities (or lack thereof); in fact, all I’d heard was that he was gay. Seems that’s the leading story nowadays, not people’s talents. Sad.

    I am a casual follower of college and pro football. As such I had never heard of Michael Sam until the ultra-liberal sports media announced (virtually everywhere) That an openly gay player was making himself available for the NFL draft.
    After that it was as if the only two guys in the draft that mattered were Michael Sam and Johnny Manziel.
    Now the media comes along and asks Tony Dungy what he thinks about Michael Sam getting drafted. Please note. Tony Dungy didn’t go seeking a microphone to broadcast his views on this. The liberal sports media ASKED him what he thought. When they found out he doesn’t think what he’s ‘supposed’ to think they decided to either tell him that he must think what they dictate or they will destroy his reputation and possibly his career.
    The delicious irony of this is that Dungy did NOT say he wouldn’t have drafted Michael Sam because Sam is gay. He said he wouldn’t have drafted Sam, a marginal player, because he wouldn’t want to deal with the ensuing media circus.
    So what does the media do? They prove Dungy to be 100% right by turning Dungy’s comments into a media circus.
    Let’s get to the truth here. The ultra-liberal sports media was never going to feel the Michael Sam draft story was complete until they found SOMEBODY they could call a homophobe and they were going to keep on pestering one NFL figure after another until one of them said something they could whine about and use to cry “homophobia”.
    The entire lot of them should be canned.

    Aside from the ignorance she spews, anyone else notice all the grammatical errors in the “article;” but then again, is it reasonable to expect much more from a high school dropout.

    • Elston Gunn

      Beat it numb nutz !

      • HelloHillbilly

        Yeah, stay out of this thread full of palinbigots!

        • Elston Gunn

          Stick it Buford!

  • nhale

    My guess is that Tony Dungy doesn’t give a rat’s ass what other people think about his statements. If he did he wouldn’t have had the conviction to say it in the first place. He is entitled to his opinion no matter how much the LGBT hoard whines about it.

  • HelloHillbilly

    What can we learn from this controversy you ask? We learn that the palin’s have a faithful following of hateful “Christian” bigots. P.S. Bristol, saw that picture of you farther down. Wow, you could be Casey Anthony’s twin now. Just my opinion!

    • Cvb

      What has Brisyol done to her mouth? That looks different now too

      • HelloHillbilly

        She’s getting as skinny as her mother. I think that’s what makes her mouth look different. But wow, she looks like a mix of Janeane Garofalo and Casey Anthony.

  • tfordala

    I am going to say this…I would NOT want to be in the shower or dressing room with a man who wants a dick up his ass…taht man needs to be in the ladies dressing room..not in with the REAL men…I cant understand how being gay gives someone more rights than me…I am as straight as they are and now adays you see attention grabbers screaming i am gay and its sickening to me…just my opinion..

    • HelloHillbilly

      Good palin bigot. Good boy.

    • HelloHillbilly

      You sound as creepy as you look.

    • Cvb

      First of all, how exactly do gays have more rights than you?

      Secondly, you may want to reconsider how straight you are if having a gay man in a locker room with you threatens or bothers you somehow.

      And thirdly, how does being gay make someone not a real man? How do you define being a man?

    • John LaVoy

      Just FYI, tfordala, you have already been in the shower room with these guys…many, many times.

    • Josh Shapiro

      Hey that’s OK, cause I wouldn’t want to be in any situaltion with you at all. Keep thinking that all gay men in a shower setting re out to “manhandle” you.

  • http://blog.stevious.com Stevious

    Dungy has a long history of anti-gay positions, so out of context, this statement is no big deal, but it fits in with a pattern of anti-gay animus that taken collectively is reason for concern.

    • kanimit

      and pro-gay people and the pattern of animus taken collectively for those who disagree with them should be a reason of concern also

      • http://blog.stevious.com Stevious

        Bristol quotes Walsh who as a blogger shows himself to be truly lazy in his research. He makes some trite statement that the only thing gay people have to worry about is being denied a wedding cake. There’s a history of violence against gay people in the United States that’s much more worrisome than just being denied a wedding cake, or the right to marry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_violence_against_LGBT_people_in_the_United_States

        • bco67

          hmmm, are we sure lazy isn’t quoting wikepedia.

          • bco67

            notice that only 15.6% of hate crimes are because of sexual orientation, and 50% are because of race.

          • http://blog.stevious.com Stevious

            you wouldn’t be statistically any less dead either way.

          • bco67

            Well interesting point – out of the 4,800 crimes that were committed against people – the other were against property and society – 8 people were killed. 9 people were raped.

          • http://blog.stevious.com Stevious

            yes, I’m sure. The information is obviously out there and easily accessible, ignoring it and downplaying the real threats of violence to gay people is lazy and disingenuous.

          • bco67

            Let’s look at the actual statistics – in 2009 8,000 hate crimes were reported. Keep in mind this is for the whole country of 330,000,000. None the less – 4,000 of those were for race, and 1400 were because of sexual orientation. Clearly Dungy has more to worry about because he is black.

      • Cvb

        Exactly Bibo! We should be very concerned that people stand up against those who want to discrimate against the gays!

  • Josh Shapiro

    Why in Sam Hill is anyone concerned with what Bristol Palin thinks?

    • Samuel Stein

      That may be, because she and her family are well respected by those who live decent and God loving lives.

      • Josh Shapiro

        Decent. you mean like both she and her brother having children out of wedlock, cutting the brake lines on school busses, her toddler son saying out loud “faggott,” the shameless lies and exhibitions, etc. Now who are the people not living within the realm of family values?

        • Dash Disqus

          …yes it is very odd that Britta, kicked Track Palin to the curb less then a year into their so called “marriage”
          from all reports, track is a deadbeat dad, drug user, lazy bum,

    • Elston Gunn

      You must, you are here, now run along putz!

  • bco67

    This blog is by Matt Walsh, not Bristol – she needs to give credit to Matt e.g. reprinted with permission.

    • Frige

      Well, this blog isn’t even written by a Bristol either…..

      • bco67

        That is what I said

        • Cvb

          ” She ” is not Bristol

  • Samuel Stein

    Walsh is spot-on. Most of us saw the abuse you and you mother endure(d) at the hands of homosexual radicals. If we do not kowtow we are attacked and bullied. Most Americans have had enough!

    • Cvb

      Samuel most Americans support gay marriage and recognize that people should not be discriminated against because of their sexuality.

  • Dash Disqus

    …well i guess you can be proud of your kid calling people “faggots” like he did on your lame tv show…
    loser..
