    As someone who suffered in Catholic school from Kindergarten all the way through high school, I can safely say that a lesbian smooch is not frowned apon by The Ten Commandments. Perhaps, Moses missed Commandments 11-20 on the back of the stone tablets.

    It’s not that they don’t know it. It’s that they don’t care to know it, because being a God believer in their eyes is more for show and not for real. They simply say “I believe in God” to feel good about themselves and delude themselves into thinking they are “moral.” And then use those delusional beliefs to justify personal hate towards those they hold bias against.

    As for Target Field management, they need to make this better by creating that no-tolerance policy and by giving season passes to the two ladies. This may have been an isolated incident, but it’s one that should have been avoided. Target Field and the Twins organization has done a good job supporting the LGBT community in the past but they need to take control of this situation and prevent a future incident such as this.

    Goes to show that even in a city like Minneapolis, haters are everywhere.

    Maggie: “It’s like the ten commandments saying, you know. ‘Be true to thine own self, and to thine own self..'”
    Michael: “‘… be true.’ Yeah, number seven.”

    Gob: “And now you love the Ten Commandments. And yet you’re the one who so conveniently forgot ‘Thou shalt protect thy father and honor no one above him unless it be-ith me, thy sweet Lord.'”
    Michael: “I’m not sure that one made it down the mountain, Gob.”

    There’s are “Arrested Development” quotes for everything.

  4. Guy from DC says

    I am joining what’s expected to be a crowd of more than 4000 LGBT people at Washington’s Nationals Park next Tuesday for Night OUT. You can bet we’ll see more than a few same-sex smooches there for the baseball game that night.

    In addition, organizers are advertizing pre-game ceremonies with Daniel Hernandez (the gay intern from Congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ office), John Berry (Director of Office of Personnel Management), Amanda Simpson (first openly transgendered Presidential appointee). And the national anthem will be performed by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington and the DC Different Drummers.

    This is the second week in a row where some knob working as a security guard has enlightened us on the bible. How entertaining! They are too ignorant to know that we don’t care, or the are just using their religion to thinly veil their hate and intolerance.

  6. johnny says

    I can’t even begin to figure out where it’s part of a security guard’s job to stop ANYONE from kissing.

    Having sex, OK, I get that.

    But simply kissing? A quick peck? This is so odd. Like most religio-wingnuts, this guy obviously has a lot of control issues.

  7. Gregv says

    Though I don’t see why he still has a job, the stupidity of his comment made me chuckle. He’s obviously never read the 10 Commandments, and likely assumes they cover whatever personal biases he has and takes for granted.
    Even Jesus questioned Simon as if something was wrong when he DIDN’T kiss him.

  8. Clint says

    Oh it’s on now, I hope every homo in the Twin Cities area goes to at least one baseball game this season, and indulges in tasteful, casual, well-timed pecks and smooches in front of this guard who is still working and now, having been reprimanded, must keep his opinions to himself. Delicious!

  9. NoSleep4Sam says

    I kind of like that he wasn’t fired, but reprimanded. If he was fired he would have been extra bitter and blamed the gays for doing it to him, but being reprimanded he can learn what he did was wrong and it could end up being positive.

  10. jamal49 says

    Um, I just checked my portable copy of The Ten Commandments and I see nothing about Lesbians not being able to kiss in public. Maybe there’s a sub-Commandment I don’t know about?

  11. Rin says

    If these two chicks had fake boobs popping out the top of hooters tshirts, fake eyelashes, cherry red lipstick, and big hair this would never have happened. I guarantee! Instead of a smart comment they would have had cheers and catcalls.

    Its because they look like suburbanites and the kiss wasn’t sexy that this wad has decided to make a comment.

  12. Bart says

    I think it’s Commandment six, subset B, article 19, paragraph 4, whcih reads: Any assclown can approach you in the baseball stadium and starts talking his/her religion.

    The Twins need to do an “It Gets Better” video and the dumbass who made the comment needs to do two things: learn the Ten Commandments so he can recite them outloud to these women and then apologize for getting up in their business and being wrong.

  13. anon says

    In theory, if city or state owned property they can’t be ejected for kissing, but in practice security guards have such wide latitude that there’s not much they can do about it. On the flip side, they can probably sue.

  14. Roman Bolliger says

    That security guard is obviously a christian fundamentalist behaving like one of those bearded Iranian revolutionary guards. Christian fundamentalists would be pleased to change the U.S.A. in something like Iran, if we let them.

  15. Victor says

    Well it’s their own fault. How can they not remember the hidden commandment of Thou Shall not Kiss thy Lesbian Girlfriend in a Sports Stadium? I had totally forgotten about that one.

  16. Rin says

    I’m tellin’ ya, if these two looked like Megan Fox and Olivia Wilde and made out with tongues and groped each others breasts wearing bikinis outside the bathroom they not only wouldn’t have gotten kicked out, but they would have been cheered on.

  17. Mike says

    AND adhere to the ten commandments… Now I’m fine with telling any couple not to kiss. Eh OK with it, I don’t think I would do it myself. But it’s that AND that makes much worse.
