    Then again, maybe not:

    “I’m essentially giving up the one dream little girls dream about their entire life. It was very disappointing. And I think that’s where the peace trumps the disappointment, because I knew in my spirit I was doing the right thing. I knew I was being obedient. Just because you’re obedient doesn’t make it easy … If I never get another national team call-up again then that’s just a part of [God’s] plan, and that’s OK."
    Just sayin'.

    Believing in traditional marriage has no meaning and, if it did, it would have no bearing on others. Bigotry is not tradition. Bigotry is hate. It's about time real Christians threw that crap out.

    Talk about victimhood I guess if you hide behind christianity it's all good.
    Kaepernick couldn't play in the NFL because he kneeled (before play).
    This victim chose not to play in 3 games because omg gay jerseys, she sat out of 3 games where she may have been needed. Give me a ****ing break with the snowflake, victim bull****.

Likewise, if their religion tells them homosexuality is immoral, why does that make them bigots? Connect the dots for me, please.
    Hardly my opinion, is it?

    I mean, if we look at the word "bigoted" we see what it is.

    bigoted | Definition of bigoted in English by Lexico Dictionaries

    "Obstinately or unreasonably attached to a belief, opinion, or faction, and intolerant towards other people's beliefs and practices."

    Intolerant towards other people's beliefs and practices. Here we're looking at intolerance towards other people's practices, ie, being gay.

    Another person being gay doesn't hurt you, in fact it has absolutely nothing to do with you. Therefore it's unreasonable.


    What you're saying is like saying that racists back when slavery existed, weren't racists back then, because it was an acceptable part of society, back then.

    If science said homosexuality was a mental disorder? I think you'll find science doesn't say this and NEVER did say this. People who claimed to be scientists might have said this.

    If "science" said that black people were inferior, does that mean people aren't being racist against black people?

    If their religion "tells them" homosexuality is immortal.... that's fun.

    You know what christianity says about adultery? Oh, ****, who cares, the President, elected by a bunch of Christian fanatics has committed adultery on THREE WIVES. It's called picking and choosing, and makes people look like bigots when they do it.

    These are the dots. Enjoy.

    A big difference between believing in traditional marriage and FORCING "traditional marriage" down people's throats.


    Let's see. Traditional marriage, go to church, get married under the eyes of God. Fine, do whatever rocks your boat.

    Modern marriage, go to the government and tell them you're married, and get benefits from this from the government.

    Now, do you see these Christian fanatics saying crazy **** about non-religious marriages with straight couples? Noooooo you don't. They only seems to be able to see the problem of "non-traditional marriage" when it involves their bigotry.

    I didn't get married in a church, under God, any of that nonsense. I went to a bureaucratic place and did it. Recognized by the government. Do you know how many times my straight marriage has been attacked by christian zealots? Not once.

    Skipping out on three games isn't a Christian view, right?

    Bigots have the most ridiculous victim routines of them all.

    Is there any evidence this player was doing that? Does she not have a right to her beliefs or the manner in which she chooses to conduct her life, or does the coach have a right to cram her beliefs down the Christian player's throat by requiring her to conform or put her imprimatur on the gay lifestyle, say, by requiring her to wear a rainbow jersey? Even if there was no explicit requirement or demand, it certainly must have, at least, appeared to be implicit to the player. Under your definition, who, then, is the bigot?
