5 Lakers appear in public service announcement promoting acceptance

Kobe Bryant and four of his Los Angeles Laker teammates called for understanding, compassion and acceptance in a public service announcement released today. The release of the public service announcement comes six days after Bryant was fined $100,000 by the NBA for using an obscene antigay slur aimed at a referee during a game last Tuesday.

The Lakers and the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced on Friday they would work together to eliminate antigay slurs.

The announcement begins with Bryant saying, "There are all kinds of different people in the world. That's what makes the world special. So whether someone is different than you";

"In race," forward Lamar Odom said;

"Ethnicity," center Pau Gasol said;

"Political beliefs," guard Shannon Brown said;

"Religion," said forward Ron Artest;

"Or sexual orientation, words could be hurtful," Bryant said. "Replace them with understand, compassion and acceptance. Let's make this a better world for all of us.

"Because we're all in this together," all five players said.

Unbelievable. Sad. Just wrong.

Pedophiles

Beastiality

As just people different from you...

Who in the world says, what your *Orientation* is for means good?

The world is under demonic influence

So what? The Lakers have to kowtow to the gay mafia?

I really wonder how many gays are interested in basketball. I know lesbians love the WNBA and most of the WNBA are lesbians but I doubt many gay men are watching the NBA. They most likely are watching some crap on Bravo.

but I doubt many gay men are watching the NBA.

Especially ever since they ditched the "short shorts" in the 80s.

Pandering is what’s leading to the divisions in this country. Especially amongst sell outs like Bryant.

Just keep on alienating the fan base . . . what’s left of it.

Ron Artest preaching about “understanding, compassion and acceptance” ?

LOL isn’t this the jackass who went into the stands after a fan a few years back? And who knows what else is in his record.

You do not want to see this.
How could they shame themselves like this?
Straight males, in great shape, successful athletes, bowing down to the “sensitivity” of homosexuals????

Probably some gay teenagers threatened suicide if the Lakers didn’t do this.

I don’t know...

Yes words can be “hurtful”. Big deal.

And people’s sexual behavior as a political issue disgusts me.

Agreed, especially since I recall the gross detail that Kobe attacked the girl from behind...isn’t that right?

I wonder what Kobe will have to say when his kids are in the first or second grade and they are read “My two daddies” by the teacher. The sodomites never stop. They always want more. I wish they would just get back in the closet. All male sodomites are pedophiles any way. They are useless and a drain on the medical system and the general population.

Remember when athletes were men? Whatever happened to that?

When you're life is slutty, you accept the perversions of others and call it diversity.

It’s a game. Their minds are not changed, and forcing homosexual compliance will harbor deeper resentment — I speculate of course.

****Especially ever since they ditched the "short shorts" in the 80s. *****

About 3 or 4 years ago the Lakers were playing the Celtics in a regular season game and the Lakers wore their 80's uniform shorts. They did not do well in first half and at halftime they switched to the longer shorts.
