Leave it to Sports Illustrated to push the militant turd-poker agenda.
I still get a laugh when I remember the pathetic "global warming" cover:

How is being a happy cop an issue if he responds appropriately?

Why do we need to know of a person's sexual choice. Does this magazine have an agenda. For people who claim they want equal treatment, they seem to need their sexual preference out front. Not everyone will ever accept this behavior. In a few years from now, I think Barrack will be on a cover as this since the conditioning of thought seems to be apart of the idea of this cover.

He is gay and he is a hero.

The other cops in the Boston PD are also heroes, no matter if they are gay or straight.

We should not glorify a police officer if he is gay, nor should we diminish his service if he is gay.

Is it just my eyes, or is there an extra set of feet to the rear of the gay cop. Meaning someone else is in the photo. May have already been noticed and commented on, but I didn’t see it anywhere. Hmmmmmm

He happened to be posted there at the time. If he did something above and beyond the call, then yeah, maybe. But to call him a hero because he happened to be there at that time, did what he was paid to do, has his picture on the front of SI and is a sexual deviant...well, let’s just say that I have a different definition of a hero.

The Left’s victim groups need to decide if they want to be “treated like everyone else” as their words allege, or if they want special treatment like their actions indicate. If gay people are the exact same and want equal treatment, then why even point out that one of the cops is gay?

It’s also unbecoming in the midst of an incident where people have died and lost legs to make the focus a gay guy does right story.

I look at that photo and I don’t see cops rushing to help a fallen man. None of them are looking at him. They appear to be rushing past him.

It is getting to the point you will have to “come out da closet” to announce you are a heterosexual.

Gee, I am so tickled a queer twit is a cop. /sarc

Tough. If they don't want to be known by their behavior, they need to stop behaving in a way that will get them labeled as such. Either that or go back in the closet.

"We should not glorify a police officer if he is gay, nor should we diminish his service if he is gay."

You're right...we should. But to homos, their sick, twisted lifestyle choice is their identity. They're the ones throwing it in our faces (pun definitely not intended!). I wish they'd STFU about their sexual preferences, but as long as they persist in wearing their pole smokeitude on their sleeves, I'll persist in pointing out how vile, disgusting, sick, twisted and immoral it is.

Are homosexuals some sort of terrorism magnet? I swear there’s a high profile one right there, wherever an attack occurs.

Did I really need to know his sexual orientation?” Heterosexual and Homosexual cops aid fallen victims”. Maybe that should have been headline.

Nobody cares about a person’s sexual orientation except the leftist agenda pushers. Homosexuals are given equal treatment. They want special treatment and recognition. They want to force us to join in the “gay” “pride”. No one is more intolerant than a person who is always screaming for tolerance.

I suspect SI is run these days mostly by college kids on their first job. The print magazine business is not exactly the place to be, and I'm sure they don't pay much.
