    I don't suppose the Super Bowl up for vote in arizona has anything to do with GOP rethinking .
    It's only because state legislators get free tickets.

    Otherwise...screw the gays!
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Yuh and I'd hate to tell the NFL and its players but they've been showering with gays since the beginning. They just didnt come out, lol. Same with the military, same with kids in school gym/sports, same with Boy Scouts, same with everything.

    I really do feel for the GOP regulars, even if some say that phrase has motives.
    Just in the last week, they've had more Akin moments than they would like.
    Wetbacks/several anti-gay state laws/Wolf--Kansas/Nugent--Abbott/Paul--Lewinsky
    /Christie a no-show at the RG mtg in DC as well as with the other 49 govs in the WH, who he helped to elect
    /GOP lobbyist going no-gay in the NFL.
    Help me if I missed any .

    I feel for liberals that have nothing better to do than to try and dig up useless stories because no one buys into their ideology so the only thing that they have
    left is trying to play the race card which is their standard MO when nothing else works.

    funny thing is no one pays attention to this stuff except for left wing liberals.

    But it seems like a growing trend, albeit small thus far...not just an isolated incident. It goes hand in hand with KS and AZ proposing their own discriminatory laws.

    No... They actually WANT most of this. Bringing out the knuckle draggers to the polls in 2014 is Job 1 in their book.

    And burying Christie right now is a positive.

    Classic. The GOP slowly sliding into an irrelevant regional party based upon hate. May God have mercy on their souls.
    Because a single lobbyist with no listed specific GOP support in congress is clearly a representation of the "GOP" as an entity

    This is idiotic to even bother a staffer with, let alone ever seeing even a committee.

    This lobbyist (and he's really a nobody, from the sounds of it), as per the link I posted, claims to have 5 House members and one senator who would be willing to co-sponsor it. My bull**** meter went off the charts when I saw that claim. I don't even think the Louie Gohmerts of the world would touch this alleged bill.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Yes but the Republicans managed to turn off a large number of women voters in the last election for Romney...by few truly substantial threats but lots of stupid **** like 'legitimate rape.'

    This is more of the same useless but 'visible' crap.

People just have to stop thinking they are entitled to equal treatment in the private sector and entitled to the service, labor, and association of others.

    If you ask me, both those that want to force the NFL to accept gays and this lobbyist group here are in the wrong and they should just let private individuals handle it. In the end, it really doesn't matter if gays are in the NFL or if they aren't, and frankly, it's no ones business but the business of those in the NFL.
    The NFL would have a problem with that because gays are a protected class in some states, including some with franchises, like WA St.
