Bigots: Gays Can’t Watch Baseball!

Even among the anti-gay right, Brian Camenker of MassResistance manages to distinguish himself for his ignorance and bigotry. He’s throwing a tantrum about the Boston Red Sox having a gay pride event during a game because — of course — “think of the children!”

Homosexual-rights group Boston Pride says it is partnering with Fenway Park to sponsor “Pride Night,” but a search of the Red Sox and Fenway Park websites by OneNewsNow did not show the event listed.

However, there is one event listed for Thursday night at Fenway Park – the Red Sox are kicking off their June after-school celebration, “Calling All Kids.”

“Baseball is largely for kids, so why should homosexual activism be part of that?” asks Brian Camenker, president of the pro-family organization MassResistance.

“And you know a lot of just regular fans don’t want to be part of that kind of thing when they go out for a baseball game,” he adds. “It’s certainly nothing you expect.”

Yeah, how outrageous to see gay people out in public enjoying a baseball game. That will clearly warp children for life, amirite?

    Really, Ed Brayton? You don’t understand. Apparently you’ve never seen the homos ruin a game. I was at a game and a homogayman was there. He arrived at the start, and he broke baseball so bad that the game went on for nine solid innings! And it was so boring that they had to get the crowd to stretch around the seventh.

    He made all the straight players so nervous that they mostly just stood in place when they had the field. The runners, too.

    Plus he corrupted the players so bad that some of them started stealing the bases!

    Please stop making me cry so hard.

    But, but since gays are defined entirely by what they do with their naughty bits they could not possibly be there without having sex on the pitch- do you want children to see that?

    Ugh thinking like these people tastes bad even for pretend.

    I’m tempted to make a “two balls” joke, but that’s too easy.

    The Marlins would probably try to trade the gay community to Toronto for some single-A prospects.

    It would be kinda sexy to see a Skins vs Skins game on gay night eh?

    @Unknown Eric:

    The apocryphal story about Soupy Sales comes to mind, in which he allegedly told the on-air joke, “I took my girlfriend to the baseball game last week. It was very romantic. I kissed her between the strikes and she kissed me between the balls.”

    Can we ban hetrosexual males from baseball and football games? Because I’ve seen more vile acts at your average NFL game then you ever see at a gay pride parade.

  • oranje

    @regexp (11): Yeah, I’m actually more concerned about my safety at major sporting events than at anything related to pride. Funny that they don’t bring up the drunkenness and language for the children, though. Just the couple of people who happen to love each other.

  • chilidog99

    Eric @ 6, how about a “pitcher / Catcher” joke then?

  • Dave Maier

    Just imagine if the Sox weren’t in first place – it would surely be God’s judgment on them, right Brian? (I shouldn’t give him ideas … they usually fold in September …).

    Ugh. MassResistance makes me angry not only for all of the obvious reasons but also because I like my hate groups to be centered in *other* people’s states! It reduces my ability to look down upon the other 49 states as being poor imitations of the perfection that is Massachusetts.

    “Baseball is largely for kids.”

    Even this premise is wrong. Googling pictures of baseball crowds show at least nine out of ten attendees are adults. What ads to you see you for televised games? Barbies? Cap’t Crunch? Nope. Beer and cars.

    why stop at two balls when four can earn you a walk home?
