I like to think of myself as a tolerant person. I have, however, one prejudice that is based on biology and history.


Michael Sam, the first openly gay professional football prospect, made history when he was filmed by an ESPN crew giving his lover, Vito Cammisano, a long, lugubrious kiss to celebrate being selected in the National Football League draft on May 10th.  The sight of two men kissing passionately was not something I and a lot of other folks wanted to see.


A spokesman for GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination, called the kiss “a significant milestone”, describing it as “touching.” No it wasn’t. It was nauseating to any heterosexual having to witness it or explain it to their children.


We need to understand that being gay is not normal. Biologically, species exist because the male and female genders exist for the purpose of procreation and propagation. Historically, gays have been held in disdain in every era of civilization. Today in the Islamic Middle East you can be killed for being gay, but you can also be killed for being Christian. In the West both actions are an abomination.


One gets a variety of estimates regarding how many gays there are in America. To the question, how many gay people are there in the United States, “The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, a sexual orientation law and public policy think tank, estimates that 9 million (about 3.8%) of Americans identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (2011). The institute also found that bisexuals make up 1.8% of the population, while 1.7% are gay or lesbian. Transgender adults make up 0.3% of the population.”


Being as generous as one can with such estimates, it still means that 96% of Americans are heterosexual.


In terms of the news generated by gays and their depiction in films and especially these days on television, one might be inclined to think that they were a far greater part of the population, but they are a minority within other minorities. My own guess is that there a large number of gays in the news profession and most certainly in the world of entertainment. And now we are being informed of gays in the world of sports.


I don’t want to hear much about gays for any reason. The kiss was not something I would want young people to see on television or anywhere else. The bigger problem is that our younger generation, progressing through our schools, is being systematically taught to accept homosexuality as just another version of normality.


A group called MassResistance was created in response to an assault on the Massachusetts school curriculums and GLSEN, the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network, is hard at work in all fifty states! As MassResistance points out, Its agenda is to ensure that “a wide range of psychologically penetrating homosexual and transgender programs (and) activities into the schools,” while “organizing and training teachers to integrate their techniques throughout the curriculum.”


In early April, GLSEN held an all-day conference in Boston with speeches and workshops. It was attended by approximately 325 people, approximately two-third of whom were students. “The GLSEN Conference is run by adults and is meant to train adults. But they go to great lengths to bring in as many students as possible, no matter how young. They come from schools across the state and usual seem part of a ‘gay club’ or affiliated with a homosexual activities on the school’s staff, such as a teacher or guidance counselor.”


The opening session included two keynote speeches, both which were directed at the students. “A general message we got from both speeches,” reported MassResistance, “was there is no sense of truth, or reality, or of right and wrong. Any way you want to express yourself in life is fine.”  The problem for gays and lesbians is that they do not have a choice about their sexual orientation, any more than they have a choice over being right or left-handed.


Being a youngster of any age is stressful enough, but being young and gay just adds to the stress and someone should tell them they will live with that for the rest of their lives.


Most certainly parents do not send their children to our public schools to learn about homosexuality, bisexuality, or being transgendered.


What a very large portion of the heterosexual population objects to is the appalling and aggressive effort of the homosexual minority to redefine marriage. Anyone with a handful of functioning brain cells knows that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. Same-sex marriage is an assault on the traditional, historical and global understanding of marriage, the keystone of any society.


It is not something the courts can or should determine. The “equal protection of the law” in the 14th Amendment does not refer to, nor infer the right to marry someone of the same sex. Interpreting it to mean that is a distortion that must intentionally ignore the intent of the Constitution as regards the specific rights it enumerates.


That’s not what’s being taught the current generation in our schools. It’s not mentioned in the countless news stories about “gay marriage” and the many depictions of gays on television sitcoms and other shows.


I don’t want to see another kiss like Sam and his lover shared on television. I don’t care what they do in their private lives, but I want it to remain private.

I am tired of having this forced down my throat.

agreed - 1000%

"Having it forced down my throat" on this subject us not a good way to express it!  The word "gay" was hijacked from our English language by homosexuals and it pisses me off!  I agree with Mr. Caruba that this is not normal and thereby it is queer.  Queer is the correct term as it use to be applied to them.  I have a cousin in law that is a homosexual and except for that, I really like him.  He is not in my face, pun intended, with it and holds a very respectable job. We don't even discuss the subject.  He has a "life partner" that I have not met but my wife says he is a very generous and likable person.  

Exactly what did we as Citizens do when this obama, chavez, kiss went viral?  As usual we fiddled.. 

Remember the tit malfunction on Super Bowl Sunday?  I found this kiss from Sam more offensive..But, America

is becoming immune to this kind of behavior.The more they see, they become more immune.

Until we stand up and DO SOMETHING, nothing is going to change. We all type until our hearts content.

Actions speak louder than words.

Good article Caruba..  

I am tired of specific groups getting preferential treatment. We are all Americans. Stop with the group crap. This small minority, less 4% of our population, seem to be pushing their radical thoughts onto to the huge majority. Stop it! It is only tearing apart this great country. How about lets just agree we are Americans FIRST and take the labels out of the conversation. 

You seem to be speaking out of both sides of your mouth.. A virus or fungus starts very small but grows. You say only 4%.. When you have this administration, with obama and michele in the lead, pushing this agenda that makes it pretty big.. Then you have the media, hollywood, and the left pushing, that makes it bigger.. LABELS???  yikes you sound like my sociology teacher. How do we address what we are talking about if we don't clearly state it?  

close to saying "majority rules"?  Nay!  Righteousness Rules!  What a relief!!!

This was predicted around the Vietnam era with the song, Joy to the World. The abhorrent behavior of most groups merits these types of actions. When I first ran my website, the "payback" was scheduled which closed down international trade for the inept bums.

This issue is certainly separating the sheep from the goats.  It will make it "easier" for the LORD when he comes, though more painful for all concerned.   But that doesn't relieve us of our responsibility:  may it never be said by this invasive culture, "but I didn't know!!!!"..... we should still try to get His Truth out there and let the consequences fall where they may.

I don’t want to see another kiss like Sam and his lover shared on television. I don’t care what they do in their private lives, but I want it to remain private.

So, of course, you'll ask ESPN to ban all kissing by all players, gay and straight, right?

David, the vast majority did ask they correct the tit malfunction and they did give it much attention, a fine and a few other slaps..  But we have all become immune and accept more and more.. So you think its OK to allow them to kiss, to just over look it?  What will it be in two more years?
