TORONTO (AP) -- Some of the NHL's biggest stars are featured in a public service announcement promoting equality within the sport, regardless of sexual orientation.

Rick Nash, Duncan Keith, Corey Perry, Dion Phaneuf and Henrik Lundqvist are among the players who participated in the spot that debuted on NBC during Sunday afternoon's broadcast of the New York Rangers' 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins.

“Homophobia”? They mean anyone that thinks two men sodomizing each other is sick has a physiological phobia.

Well, then, how about some guy sodomizing a dog, a sheep, or a horse? I suppose we are to accept that as well?

They also want us to accept sex with children. Imagine your 6 year old son coming home from school and being told the teacher sodomized him and there is nothing a parent can do about it as it is acceptable behavior.

We said this is where homosexuals were headed decades ago; the absolute acceptance of their sick behavior.

It is about time we put these sodomites back into the closet!

I doubt that there are many hockey players who have an irrational fear of homosexuals.

Normally (no pun intended) any “gay” who makes it in major league sports generally enjoys the privilege of his/her sexual inclinations being ignored by the sport watching public. Why make an issue out of something that isn’t an issue.

“I doubt that there are many hockey players who have an irrational fear of homosexuals.”

You’re right - fear of predators such as Graham James is not irratinal.

Google up Coach James and Theo Fleury - more than you ever wanted to know.

Do some people wake up and say “There is not enough AIDS in the world”?

What’s this about AIDS? Didn’t you get the memo???

Everybody knows that AIDS spread far and wide because Ronald Reagan didn’t do enough to fight AIDS in the ‘80s. The gay community was dispppointed in him because, with his Hollywood background, he should have been sympathetic to their issues.

So, the reason AIDS became a pandemic was not because of the activities which spread the disease, it was because Ronald Reagan was slow to understand how widespread it was, and was somehow homophobic because he didn’t do enough to fight AIDS. (sarcasm)

So a bunch of NHL stars are doing PSAs for their AUDIENCE in order to combat NHL PLAYERS who discriminate against their gay teammates?

That’s not the Stanley Cup, but coveted trophy of the legendary Federal League. Plus Ned Braden didn’t sleep with dudes, his dog maybe. His wife was dynamite, just aces. She even underlined the dirty parts.

I don't believe you know much about soccer players. I suggest you Google "Robbie Fowler" and "homophobia".
