  • OT: IS THE AMERICAN LEAGUE OK?

    Filed at 2:36 pm under by dcobranchi

    A sort-of political post. Proceed at your own risk.

    ABCNews has an article up about “morals voters” looking for GW to deliver for them. I found this quote to be among the dumbest statements I’ve seen in quite a while:

    “Values” voters delivered for the president, and the president must now deliver for them — especially in the courts, said Gary Cass, head of a grassroots political organization affiliated with Coral Ridge, called the Center for Reclaiming America.

    “It’s about the next 40 years and how the courts are going to affect the world in which my children and grandchildren are going to be raised in,” he said.

    Cass wants a U.S. Supreme Court that will outlaw abortion and gay marriage. “Do you want to take your children to a National League baseball game for instance and have homosexuals showing affection to one another? I don’t want my kids to see that,” he said.

    I guess he wants to outlaw PDAs. Hmmm– that might not be such a bad idea. I seem to remember a pretty graphic heterosexual PDA at a Mets game a number of years ago. It really is a National League problem.

    Articles like this remind me just how much of a geek I am. Took me quite a little bit to figure out that you weren’t talking about Personal Digital Assistants. :p

    That was my first thought to, what does Palm have to do with this?

    Also – a couple (boy-girl) with one of the rooms above the field in Toronto put on a show a few years ago. I guess baseball isn’t safe at all.

    Hell, I live in NYC, and it’s the straight couples that are more embarrassing with their public behavior. I wish I could hit them with squirt guns, like one does with cats. It’s the teenagers on the subways who are the worst.

    Straighten me out. How does banning gay marriage prevent public gay displays of affection?

    Give that man a cigar. So, was he misquoted? Did he misspeak? Or does he really want to basically banish gays to the closet?
