Lobbyist “Projects” Dozens Of Members Of Congress Will Back Bill To Ban Gays From NFL

How is it that this idiot thinks he can get the government to tell a company who they can and cannot hire? It’s none of his business.

I think this commenter said it best: “”We are losing our decency as a nation,” Burkman said in a statement. “Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man.”

But playing with dog fighters, wife beaters and convicted felons is totally cool with him.”

WASHINGTON — The Washington lobbyist who announced Monday that he wants to put forward legislation banning gay people from playing in the National Football League told a reporter that the proposal is just about “common decency and civility.”

Told by WJLA-ABC 7’s Mike Conneen that some were suggesting the proposal is a stunt, Jack Burkman insisted, “No, hardly a stunt.”

Prompted by NFL hopeful Michael Sam’s coming out, the conservative Burkman described his proposed legislation, saying, “If someone has come out as a homosexual, what this legislation would do is one of two things: It would ban them from the National Football League. Two, it would give the NFL a choice: It would allow them to create separate facilities, completely separate facilities.”
