    Let alone reach congress or get passed.

    One idiot presenting a stupid bill he had written by people he pays does not law make.
    You never know, a bill allowing businesses to not serve homosexuals for religious reasons passed both houses in Arizona.

    And you are basing your claim on what evidence? Let's try for facts shall we?

    while i agree 200% they are idiots and it wont pass or at least i HOPE that it wont be taken seriously that has no impact on my post

    i mean its not like gays already don't have equal rights and there aren't state laws banning them from marriage or benefits or civil unions or domestic partnerships or adopting or its legal to discriminate against them or fire them just because they are gay. I mean no state political houses are trying to legislate legal discrimination against them or anything.

    Personally, I think this guy and anyone who agrees with him is both a bigot and stupid.

    But at the same time, I would bet that "anyone who agrees with him" constitutes a very small percentage of the GOP.

    Hmm...religious reasons you say? Well I suppose as long as the business is a religious organization....not sure how that would work though.

    Classic. The GOP slowly sliding into an irrelevant regional party based upon hate. May God have mercy on their souls.
    And when the republicans continue to caterwaul and whine next time when they lose, they will be unable to understand that this is not 1962, and people have changed, demographics have changed and the bigotry that they think is just a part of society has vanished, save their nutty contingent, then, I will laugh, heartily.

    Because we have been telling them this would happen for a long time.

    I left the party...no...it left me, it is a party of angry, uneducated, white, straight, christian, middle aged men. (how is that dwindling demographic doing for ya?)

    I am sorry, but what kind of a bigoted idiot would want no gays in the NFL? That kind of bigotry is about as stupid/dangerous and evil as the Ugandan law that jails gays for 14 years or life for being gay. Gay people are the same as any other person, they just happen to be attracted to men. They are not a danger to the general public, they almost never force themselves upon straight men. If anything, gays are very aware that they want to "fit in" and to be respected as equals and not as subhuman monsters.

    This lobbyist, if it is true that he is planning this, should be shunned by the republican party because he clearly does not deserve to be rubbing elbows with the people in the country who make and write the laws. If only for the republicans to even avoid the association with someone as evil and rotten as this lobbyist.

    Well, he IS a lobbyist. "Evil and rotten" is a compliment to bottom-feeders like lobbyists.

    The same idiots that passed an anti-gay bill in Arizona, along with SIX other State's wrong.
    Now, three GOP lstate legislators admit it was a mistake, and are begging Gov. Brewer to veto it.
    I don't suppose the Super Bowl up for vote in arizona has anything to do with GOP rethinking .

    No one is entitled to be part of the NFL or any other private organization. If the NFL does or does not want gays in their business that is their right, and if their customers tell them that is what they want, or that is not what they want, then again, the NFL has the right to act accordingly. 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.
