I have found two follow up stories for my post earlier about the Washington lobbyist trying to put forth legislation to require the NFL to ban homosexual players.
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.”
