COURAGE?




Collins
I'm sorry but I have a problem with the latest hero of the MSM.  Jason Collins is the newest, bestest hero of the media.  In case you haven't heard, Jason Collins is Gay!!  Well, Jason is an ex-NBA player who has recently "come out" as gay.  For this the MSM has lavished praise on him using the words "brave" and "courageous" to describe his pronouncement.  That's great.  I think it needs to be pointed out that Collins, by any objective measure was a journeyman player.  Despite his journeyman status he made about $33 million during his pedestrian career spanning about ten years. 

What is my problem?  Well he didn't feel the need to "come out" at any time while in the "prime" of his career.  That possibly would have put his earning potential at risk.  Additionally, he had a girlfriend for the last eight years and was engaged to be married.  For Collins to "come out" at this time is really very convenient for him.  After all, what happens if no NBA team wants to sign an aging journeyman player who is past his "prime?"  Imagine the outrage in the MSM if no team offers an openly gay player a contract.  This is all too convenient for me.  Call me cynical.

Brave and courageous?  Our military fit that description.  Police and Fire officers fit that description.  A washed-up basketball player who really was a "never was?"  Not really.

I couldn't agree with you more.
I wonder how many times Obama's called a cop who put his life on the line for someone else. yet he called Collins to congratulate him on coming out?
Big deal.
BIG BIG deal...how horrid.

Z,
Thanks for the visit. I hate that we throw around the words bravery and courage.

Why do people want us to celebrate their sin, their perversion?

No thanks.

San Francisco, with its homosexual and Lesbian lifestyle has just reported an absence of children residing their.

What did they expect?

A baby boom? with homosexuals and lesbians running loose?

I will not celebrate sin, nor will I let them steal my children to further their lifestyle.

Their lifestyle only leads to Death.
