It’s been kind of fun watching the Christian right bigots lose their damn minds over seeing Michael Sam kiss his boyfriend after finding out he’d been drafted by the St. Louis Rams. Sandy Rios’ reaction is particularly amusing to me. Her “holy spirit” is “revulsed” and she just couldn’t bear to watch.
Rios said on her radio show yesterday that “the Holy Spirit within me is revulsed” by the sight of two men kissing, insisting that most Americans “do not like this” and “don’t like what ESPN is doing and how they’re forcing this on the watchers, the guys, for the most part.”
“I watched it once and it was enough, I couldn’t bear to watch it,” she said. “It’s just such an unnatural act it’s hard to watch, I just don’t want to watch it, I can’t bear it.”
Awww. Your poor, delicate little feel feels. You’ll probably get over it. Or you won’t. Either way, I can’t imagine why anyone else should care.
