    I wonder if you were making a stink about boycotting the Olympics when they were held in China? Hmm. Curious the way some of you are reacting to this to say the least.

    Oh and yes, Russia is NOT the United States. They do not live by our laws. They have a different culture than we do. Maybe others should show some tolerance for their culture, regardless of how they personally view it. Doesn't seem to be a problem for most liberals when it comes to the human rights abuses of women around the world either when they defend the rights of people from other countries to practice their religion of radical Islam.

    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    So then you're still a teenager. Okay, that explains why you don't understand the concept of countries with DIFFERING cultures and beliefs uniting with the Olympic games.

    Not really. I understand they have differing beliefs, their beliefs just happen to be illogical and wrong. Also, there is an inherent risk in sending known homosexual athletes to a country where homosexuals are deported.

    It doesn't matter your personal beliefs. There are countries that do MUCH worse things, like China, like many countries in the ME. This is not supposed to involve the Olympics. I think this is extremely selfish thing to do to all the athletes that have practiced and worked hard their entire lives for this moment, and you want to cancel it because gay people won't be able to make public showings of affection for 2 weeks out of their lives. I say TOO BAD.

    No, I want to move it, or meet some mutual agreement. Also, it's not simply an issue of forced public discretion, it's that legal actions could be made against the athletes for doing, essentially, nothing.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    Most people would rather watch the Olympics than two homosexuals playing tongue wrestling games.

    Who cares what you want? What you want is not really that important. What the athletes who have worked hard for this moment is what's important. Allowing us to see our athletes compete in the Olympics is what is important. Your gay agenda just isn't as important to most people.

    The Olympics are about the athletes, not their sexual preference...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Exactly, and it pisses me off that some people and their ideology are trying to prevent me and others who enjoy the games from watching our country compete.
