Gays Have Ruined Sports For Fox News Contributor Todd Starnes

Todd Starnes

Todd Starnes is very, very sad. After seeing gay weddings in the Rose Bowl Parade, the various outpourings of support for gay Olympians and condemnations of Russia's abominable laws, having a meltdown over the Grammy weddings, and now with Michael Sam daring to come out as an openly gay football player, sports have been ruined for Starnes forever.

Said Starnes, in part, on Facebook:

I should’ve learned my lesson after the Rose Bowl Parade and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

It’s all about advancing a cultural agenda — no matter the cost.

We are no longer allowed to have fun and enjoy sports or entertainment programs. How sad.

"Advancing a cultural agenda"...said without a trace of irony from the man who lied that Colorado high schoolers have been banned from celebrating America, falsely claimed that a VA hospital in Dallas forbade Christmas cards, and engaged in vile fear-mongering tactics by asserting that Obama is going to turn the U.S. military against Christians.

Hemant Mehta at Patheos sums up Starnes' complaint rather nicely:

I guess he wants an NFL where only straight players get to tackle each other and slap each other on the ass and an Olympics where only straight athletes get to participate in the two-man luge.

  1. There were people just like this jerk who said the same thing when professional sports were racially integrated. Think of the hateful people who rallied against Jackie Robinson and those who followed him.

  2. We are in the eye of the storm. I love that we are front and center in conversations on all fronts. This is far more than we had going just 5-10 years ago.

    Don't allow the negative to be seen as such. It is those individuals and society that help the gay community grow stronger, more empowered and ultimately, seated at "the table."

  3. dear mr. starnes, you're welcome. if you decide to leave or change professions, don't let the door hit 'ya in the rear on the way out.

    you may have been absent this day in school, but sports journalists must cover topics with which they don't agree, even conservatives. and good journalists don't let their personal opinions become the news story. become a pastor and start a church, or shut up and cover sports news.

  4. It's hilarious that one gay man has the whole NFL and its "macho men" in a tizzy. The standards were pretty high before the scary gays arrived though: accused murderers, rapists, drug addicts, wife beaters, thieves and borderline idiots were A-OK to let in to their elite fraternity.

  5. Come on guys, give the guy a break. He'll never be able to watch another game on TV without thinking about all those men piling on top of each other, you know, "that way".

  6. Bring back the days when football was just a bunch of muscly men with no social agenda prancing around a meadow in skin-tight capri pants and rolling around on top of each other! Bring back the days when the Super Bowl was just about winning jewelry and stopping in the middle to have a song without issue ads shoving something down your throat!

  7. Chuckie! You're all grown up!

  8. Mr. Starnes, it is TRULY our pleasure to just be ourselves and, without pandering to voters as you do for your financial support, to stand up and claim freely our rights to live in our states, in this country of ours, and in this world that is our home too. Build a rocket and leave is time, since you really just don't want to share. ( TIME OUT, BULLY.)

  9. I bet Todd is a DEEPLY closeted,self loathing gay man. As icky as that would be. Regardless,he's sold his soul to the conservative movement...

  10. Straight people problems.

  11. The poor guy. My heart aches for his loss, as well as for his disturbingly uneven eyes and ill-fitting glasses.

  12. Oh dear gawd- that's not gay face, its gay face, neck, scalp and shoulders...

  13. This is what fox news does. They place extreme clowns on the air to score ratings. Sadly we blame the individual and give Fox News a pass so they can do it all over again, just as it did with Glen Beck.

  14. He needs to straighten his glasses.

  15. Aha!!! So that's what 'a face like a smacked ass' really looks like. Well, actually - a cartoon of a smacked ass.

  16. He looks like he wants to break out into a show tune--but he'd sing it horribly out of tune. Kinda crazy-like.

  17. A cultural agenda?

    Oh you mean advancing fairness and equality within a society that hold the Bill of Rights and the Constitution as paragons of Utopia?

  18. He is desperate need of a make over and boyfriend ( yeah preferably with a big NFL jock)

  19. I'd be cranky too if I looked like that. #afaceforradio

  22. Not Todd but Toad.

  23. Boy, he's just such a dork! He must have a million chips on his shoulders.

  24. Todd doesn't look like a guy who ever actually played sports.

    Posted by: andrew | Feb 10, 2014 10:59:30 PM

  25. He's just like so many other pitiful Xtian types... waaaa, waaaa, waaaa.
