    I'd like to agree with the "what you do in your own bedroom is your own business" crowd because I truly don't care if you're gay, straight or otherwise.  It's TMI to me.  But then I consider that there are people in this world who would not hire a person because he/she is gay.  That is to say nothing of the many who would kill, shoot, lynch, maim, or torture a person for being gay.  It happens in this world of ours, and it's sad.  I've yet to meet a person who was scared to come out as heterosexual, mostly because there really isn't any consequence for doing so.  Gays are persecuted elsewhere, even in the USA somewhat, an if JC feels solidarity with gays in other places who can't be themselves, then good for him.    




    oh, you mean the muslims?

    Again free country.  You may support this type of life style but it doesn't belong in my religion.

     

     



    even more so than that, it doesn't belong in the natural order of things. 

     

    it's physiologically unsustainable, impossible to promulgate through procreation / genetics, so they have to instead choose indoctrination of the young and formerly innocent. and furthermore to that the rate and DISPROPORTIONATELY HIGH (well proven by decades of statistics) incidence of virulent/deadly STD's, domestic violence, drug abuse and suicide involved with the lifestyle prove out that it's against the natural order of things.

    mind you, had the discussion not emerged, at the hands of someone else, i would not be discussing this.  but since we are supposed to worship a "coming out" of a horrendous quality basketball player, there, you can have what i think of the whole shebang.



    People like you dont belong in the natural order of things...you might want to look at all of your negative comments and realize that you are a bigot and coming from a black guy (if thats what you are) is pathetic.

    i merely stated what the statistics of death, STD, substance abuse, suicide and physiological traits say about homosexuality.  if you have been indoctrinated to celebrate it as some aspect of "equality" or what other big new fake medicine that progress sieves are foisting it upon our culture as then that's good for you. 

    if you like the idea of elementary school kids being filled with information about how they should try out gay sex then good for you.  is it good for YOUR kids or just everyone else's?  if you like watching tv shows and movies with all sorts of fluffy and propped up gay characters in it then that's good for you!

    i don't happen to subscribe to any of those things as a "like"- it does not make me a bigot- i am an absolute sexuality libertarian.  but i expect others to do as i do- don't tell me about "who you are" and what you do in the bedroom, because i don't care!  and i never will.

    muslims are the ONLY group in the world right now who believe in and have institutionalized in codified (sharia) law the SLAUGHTER and TORTURE of gays just for being gay.  yet we welcome them with open arms to this country at the same time we are giving such a publicity boost to the gay lifestyle and pushing it to be mainstream. 


    might someone or few of us strap on a thinking cap and cogitate that one of these things does not go with the other?  or are they both useful tools in tearing up our culture and the desired (passive) revolution that progressives have openly pined for since the 1970s?  and now they stamp these ideals into the brain lamed kiddos in the colleges, univershitties and primary schools.


    love your muslims and love your gays.  even though as soon as the muslims get enough numbers in the USA they will begin their predictable persecution, torture and murder of gays.  this is the anatomy of a mental disorder.

    it only takes until 1:25 to get one of the followers of the religion of the pieces to admit that they have, according to sharia law, capital punishment for anyone being gay. 

    no "bible thumpers" or any other group on the planet enacts such savagery.  why don't all you lovers of all things gay focus on your real enemy?  it's not me being fatigued with the homo-fascist agenda and the overly TMI nature of our culture right now, it's that there ARE people among us who will not think twice about murdering gays, just for being gay.

    Again free country.  You may support this type of life style but it doesn't belong in my religion.

     

     



    So just what does belong in your religion? Hatred?  You are a typical bible thumper who picks and chooses what to believe from the Bible... its laughable...

     



    You obviously know nothing about me.  You are laughable at best. .   No I don't pick and choose what to believe.  It is pretty much black in white .   Maybe you just just show your support for Jason and go march with him next parade.    I hope you don't bring up hate while you are supporting his decision to let you know his lifestyle.  I said nothing of hate.  

    I suppose  you think adultery is ok as well?

    well, when the most popular culture-rot TV show in the land is a running manual on how to booze, take drugs (pills and street) into your 40's and idolize your neighbor's wife's yum yums (not the baked goods) is called "DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES" then thinking "adultery is okay" is not such a stretch from there.....

    it took guts to "come out" only after he was certain that he had stunk himself out of the league, while saying "i'm gay now, and i still want to play"?  that's called seeking a "mercy booking"

    don' t you realize what the point is?  this guy was never a good ball player.  now he's over the hill.  he's on the 21st minute of his (statistics only ever warranted) FIVE minutes of fame.  this is self preservation- meld and gird yourself with some perceived-to-be-hip social justice and maybe someone will mercy-sign you for one more year. 

    last i knew, the nba was not about "who" people are- and if it was about that then we'd find there are an incredible number of JR Rider / latrine sprewell / other unsavory types of personas dwelling on your otherwise unsuspecting home team roster



    I never said  he was a good  player. He's 34 and hasn't scored more than 100 points in a  season since 2007-08, or something like that. The  point is that he's simply acknowledging who he is. It has nothing to do with his ability to play.

    You say you don't care  what he does in his bedroom. It doesn't seem like that's the case.

    Look, the Good Book also condemns tattoos and condones stoning to death rebellious children. So let's not go there.

    I never said Jason Collins showed any couarge in coming out. He's 34 and all but done as an NBA player, so announcing it now carries  no big risk. If a 20-something player who  had true value to a team did,  that would take some guts.

    And no, gay people are not talking about what they do in the bedroom anymore than I am when I declare myself a heterosexual.
