Rep. Steve King, the prom king of Wingnuttia High School, is quite upset about Jason Collins coming out as a gay basketball player. And he’s even more upset about President Obama calling him afterward. And wouldn’t you know it, it involves Tim Tebow and the death of Western civilization too.
ING: I hear the president reducing or lowering American values by his comments that take place in the public and in the press. Think about the things he’s chosen to take sides on. [...] Then we’ve got Tim Tebow who will kneel and pray to God on the football field. Meanwhile we have a professional athlete that decides he’s going to announce his sexuality and he gets a personal call from the United States to highlight the sexuality of a professional ballplayer. These are ways that the culture gets undermined, where it gets divided. The people over on this side take their followership from that kind of leadership. One notch at a time, American civilization, American culture, western civilization, western Judeo-Christiandom are eroded.
Yes, yes, yes. President Obama calling Jason Collins made the baby Jesus cry. We get it.
