    I have a great idea-if you aren't on the olympic team, you should have no frigging say as to whether they go or not

    It doesn't work that way. I'm sorry, and it's not about anyone's feelings. As a country there are things we represent, things we cherish, and things we don't. The individual, if patriotic, has to suffer sometimes in order to make that true. It's what we ask for when we send young men and women to war, and it's what we ask for when we tell our athletes that we are staying home.

    sorry, keeping a few gays happy is not worth the cost

    they should pursue their dreams and tell people like you to mind their own business

    It has nothing to do with happy. It has to do with what is right. That can have a very high cost.

    stop telling other people to pay a cost you cannot

    why do far lefties want others to make sacrifices so you can feel good even though the actions you want others to take won't do squat?

    The burning of the witches is a bit closer to the genocide exception.

    We can always find something to be offended about, and boycott over. Why this? Why now?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    We should be supporting Russia's decision to bring moral decency back to the liberal ****hole we call Earth.
    Republican - Conservative government is the answer

    Because our gay kids are threatened. This isn't our doing, Russia made their stand, now we make ours.
