Robbie Rogers, a former midfielder for the United States national team who most recently played in England, had revealed in a blog post that he was gay, too.

Robbie Rogers, a midfielder for the Columbus Crew from 2007-2011, revealed Friday that he is gay. He wrote: “My secret is gone, I am a free man, I can move on and live my life as my creator intended.”

Hey everybody. I'm straight. I have to announce that to the world since I'm important.

I never understood why homos needed to share the fact that they blank Richards to everybody. It's really none of my business.

I’ve had about enough of this crap. Was trying to watch USA Network, today, while catching up on laundry. It was another NCIS marathon. The commercials were FILLED with a PSAs against ‘homophobia’ and a damned show called ‘Necessary Roughness’....which seemed to be all about some GAY player.

Gay, gay, gay, gay. WHATEVER! Stop trying to shove your damned agenda down my throat!

We could stop this nonsense in its tracks by everyone declaring that they are gay. It’s not a legal status as far as I know. Has anyone seen a government issued gay card? The left would then have to coopt yet another word that when The Sound of Music came out, meant happy.

My sister in law is the same way.

I still say that every time the gay thing comes up, regardless of the situation place or circumstance, we should loudly, forcefully and without backing down under ANT circumstances, ask the following...

“What does the manner in which you have sex have to do with this issue?”

And I mean EVERY TIME. MAKE these bastards explain themselves. You will quickly see a turnaround in the genpub’s attitude after the initial huff and puffing.

Because once ant thinking mind has to address that question, the end result is not ‘pro-gay’.

Also note the use of “creator”.

Again, the left co opts religious language for their purpose.

It agitates the hell out of my cousin that I don’t acknowledge it and a treat both she and her girlfriend like anyone else in the family.

I don’t ask anyone else in the family about their sex life so why should I concentrate on my cousin’s?

One of the guys I grew up with is gay but he says its not the central issue of his life and it shows because he doesn’t spend his life angry. He knows I don’t agree with it but it wouldn’t be the first time we’ve disagreed about something over the past 30 years.

All kidding aside, I think we should have a straight pride parade. March through town chanting “I’m here, I drink beer and I sex is not a basis of government.”

I also want to see someone with a radio/TV show ask why it is that people can discuss gay TV shows at work without getting fired, but not BDSM videos.

I mean they ARE both about sex right? Equal protection and all that? The biggest thing the left fears is that people stop thinking emotionally and start thinking rationally.

Ask Perkie Katie if she has her own blood frozen or if she would take a transfusion from a gay man on live TV and see what happens.

Ask Anderson why in detail there should be gay groups allowed to promote anal sex to children when AIDS is a guaranteed killer and child sex is not something exactly good for anyone, but promoting gun safety classes is somehow a crime against nature. Alynski. Make them live up to their own ‘standards’. AKA, explain themselves. And live up to it.

There was a fartknocker named Vince,
A fag, but with balls quite immense.
..One day, playing soccer
..He sprang his left knocker
And kicked it right over a fence.

Soccer is gay.

Wow, did you have to use Google for that piece of brilliance, or were you able to bring your Neanderthal knuckles up from the ground just long enough to hunt and peck at the keyboard all by yourself?

But if a player comes out as being gay, and your 3.5 braincells conclude the whole sport therefor is gay, then by George, American Football (with its tight ends, and Q-back grabbing the "ball" between another man's legs) must be gay as well.

You took the words right out of my mouth.

Did he really say ‘the way the creator intended’?

It’s sickening that kids are just rolling with this,
I don’t know a single teenager/20 something year old who doesn’t support the ‘rights’ of gays.

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...

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!

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.
