You were not uncomfortable because no one knew you were a deviant. On top of that;What The Creator intended He went to the trouble to make very clear. One stupid self serving decision after another. Good luck with your deviance and blasphemy, fella’ you're going to need it...

America has football, baseball, basketball, and NASCAR. We don’t need soccer.

And for your information, I have 4 brain cells!

I am sitting here, watching the 5th Round of the English FA Cup between
Leeds United (my old faves) and Manchester City, from Elland Road in Leeds. I’ve been a soccer fan since 1971, when I first got assigned to the UK. While stationed in Rome, I lived 20 minutes from the Stadio Olimpico, and I took my sons almost every Sunday to see As Roma or Lazio play. Later on, during a tour in Argentina, I got to see the once-great Diego Maradona play. I am a veteran, father of three children, grandfather of five and great grandfather of one. I love soccer and I am straight. Fox Soccer Channel rocks!

Are you a NFL fan? Did you see the homofest in the media that preceeded the Super Bowl?

I only watched a little of the SB and did not watch halftime. I never do, especially after the Janet Jackson crap, so I missed the homofest.

I never get tired of posting this beer commercial. Can you imagine the outrage if it aired in the U.S.?

I know, but it's still funny. Now imagine the "sensitivity training" that would ensue if fans chanted this (to the tune of "Johnny Comes Marching Home").

WARNING: adult tyrics.

I can move on and live my life as my creator intended.

The Creator did not make you gay. Other than that why does anyone care what you do?
