You'll have to forgive my vagueness on the details, but I am neither a sports fan or a celebrity watcher, but as far as I can tell, this is what happened; an athlete announced to the world that he is a sexual deviant; a homosexual. Now what this has to do with his profession I haven't the foggiest idea. There is a tendency among people with that deviancy to get their entire life wrapped up in their deviancy; to find their very identity in the 'cause'. Honestly, my heterosexuality almost never comes up in conversation and I've never thought it needed to be celebrated or applauded.
Soon after this announcement, another athletete put out a statement claiming confusion as to why a man would prefer another man with all the beautiful women in the world. This statement was pounced upon by the media, although its really not that different from a thousand similar statements Ive heard heterosexual men make amongst themselves over the years.
Thirdly, yet another athlete made a statement that he is a Christian, and homosexuality is not something to be celebrated, but rather something to be condemned as the sin that is according to Scripture. On this, the media went absolutely berserk, but in a pathetically predictable way. I had the misfortune of having to watch an afternoon talk show populated by a panel of very 'progressive' and 'open-minded' women who were weighing in on this despite the fact that it was none of their business and no one had asked them. One by one, they spouted their open-minded drivel to the frantic clapping of their empty-headed audience. Each one seemed to try to outdo the one before her in how open-minded she could be, and although they expressed their opinions, it was all the exact same opinion. There was no deviation from the party line. Sodomite good, Christian bad, straight down the line.
One of these women, a grammatically challenged lady who reminds me of Mr. Ed, misquoted a Bible verse to prove her point and then said that the Christian athlete "he sin every day". That may be true, I'm not familiar with his personal life, but I am willing to bet that when he does, he does not expect to be congratulated, celebrated, patted on the back or made into a hero for it. Only deviants expect that, and only fools comply.
But this is a free country, mostly, and these women have the right to their opinion, but isn't it interesting that they all knew, despite their diverse backgrounds, EXACTLY what they were expected to say. They didn't even have to think about it. None of them dare say 'Well the Christian guy may have a point, why are we applauding this? Is it really 'bravery' to air your faults like this?'. You take a stand like that, you step outside the groupthink parameters, outside of the 3x5 card of accepted opinion ( thank you, Tom Woods) and you become a pariah,an outcast. You become one of Them. You won't get your hefty contract for your show, sponsors will drop you, you won't be invited to all the cool parties. Really its just high school on a much grander scale. You are either one of the cool kids ( and the cool kids decide whether or not you are) or you're a Them.
Well call me a Them, but I think I'll just stick with the Book. It's done right by me so far.
