Pats, S.F. Giants back gay marriage

WASHINGTON — The New England Patriots are for same-sex marriage. So are the San Francisco Giants.
The reigning football and baseball champions, along with baseball’s small-market Tampa Bay Rays, are among the thousands of businesses, religious groups, advocacy organizations and politicians who are filing legal briefs at the U.S. Supreme Court in support of gay marriage.
The cases from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee will be argued April 28, and a decision is expected by early summer.
Roughly six dozen briefs backing pro-gay rights plaintiffs in the four states are expected by the Friday deadline. Included is a “people’s brief” filed by the Human Rights Campaign with the signatures of 207,551 people.
The Super Bowl-champion Patriots, the World Series-winning Giants and the Rays are part of a brief from hundreds of U.S. businesses.
The Patriots play in Massachusetts, the first state to allow same-sex couples to marry, and the Giants represent a city that is notable for its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Rays president Brian Auld said it was important that his team stand up as well.
“We’re a small but visible business, and I actually think it’s important that we send this signal of inclusion to the entire region,” Auld said in a telephone interview Thursday as he watched the Rays’ first spring training game in Port Charlotte, Florida.
The team also has participated in the “It Gets Better” project to encourage LGBT teenagers who have been bullied.
“Our players have traditionally been supportive of these kinds of things,” Auld said.
The Patriots, Giants and Rays are taking a stand the same week New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy made headlines for comments on MLB ambassador for inclusion Billy Bean, who is gay. “I disagree with his lifestyle,” Murphy told NJ.com on Tuesday. “I do disagree with the fact that Billy is a homosexual.”
A team spokesman said Wednesday that Murphy will no longer address his religious beliefs and will stick to baseball.

I don’t watch sports anyway. Now is a perfect time not to start.

I sense they are more interested in their exorbitant paycheck.

Speaking of trannies, I wonder what changes we can expect in the Patriots Cheerleaders because of this. In my opinion, the Patriots’ action is tremendously damaging to vast numbers of impressionable kids, and also self destructive to the Patriots franchise. I expect it to lead to the demise of the team.

New England Patriots have just eliminated the position of Tight End. They’ll be going with an all Wide Receiver lineup in the future.

Former Patriots running back Craig James calls same-sex homosexual marriage and its supporters the work of Satan. Asked on a Family Research Council radio show how he felt about the Patriots, among more than 375 companies, signing an amicus brief last week encouraging the Supreme Court to strike down bans on “marriage equality,” James said, “If I were a current player in that locker room and my livelihood depended on me being quiet or losing it because of my belief system, I’d worry. The rising support for the freedom to marry is Satan working on us.”

As Billy Graham said so well over 30 years ago: “If God doesn’t judge America, He’s going to have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” Then there’s one of my favorites, Judge Robert H. Bork, so ably authoring “Slouching Toward Gomorrah.” in the mid-90’s. Well, IMHO, America is now ‘sprinting’ toward Gomorrah!
Shalom!

I think it is the start of an NFL policy. Also, it has been obviously evident that some players don’t wear a cup, dangerous practice. Finally, regarding the circus part of our bread and circus life, far more games are being won in the last few minutes than before. It makes for building ticket prices and viewerships, but it is not like the games of ten years ago.
