Dallas Sports Anchor Dale Hansen and FRC Spokeshater Discuss Michael Sam’s ESPN Kiss: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-05-13 at 12.55.04 PM

Dallas sports anchor Dale Hansen and Ken Blackwell of the anti-gay hate group Family Research Council appeared on yesterday's CNN Tonight to discuss Michael Sam’s emotional reaction to being drafted into the NFL as well as Sam’s future prospects with the league.

Hansen, whose February speech in support of Sam went viral, was his usual articulate self while Blackwell went through the FRC talking points of ESPN and Sam trying to advance a homosexual “agenda” by televising Sam's kiss with his boyfriend.

Said Blackwell: 

Sam kissI thought the kiss was inappropriate and over the top, but I am just surprised with the duplicity among owners and leadership of the NFL. I take it it was just a few years ago when there were players who criticized Tim Tebow for wearing his faith on his sleeve. There were folks who basically said he was not a good football player; that's why they were critical of him, not because he was a professed Christian who practiced his faith in all aspects of his life.

I -- I really do question the network's judgment, editorial judgment in putting the kiss on -- on TV. Look, this is a very clear opportunity for Mr. Sam and others to co-op a professional sports, in this case the NFL, as a platform and as a force multiplier for advancing their agenda.

  1. "faith" and sexuality are not equivalent. What you believe (a function of your mind and upbringing) is not equivalent to who you are (a function of your genetics).

    It's easier to change what you believe that it is to change what you are.

    Has anyone ever shown that one's religious choice is genetically indicated?

    Stop comparing the two.

  2. More Republican fail. Republican minority outreach takes the form of a punch to the face.

  7. Next up: CNN invites a Klansman to discuss his feelings about interracial kisses on ABC's "Scandal."

    Seriously, CNN, you're still doing this crap? It's 2014, stop giving airtime to anti-gay hate groups. You don't regularly do it for hate groups aimed at other minorities. Stop making us the exception.

  8. @Turing's Ghost : glad to forward you the homosexual agenda, which has been bouncing around the Internet for years ...
    I know that many of you have heard Pat Robertson, Jerry Fallwell and others speak of the "Homosexual Agenda," but no one has ever seen a copy of it.

    Well, I have finally obtained a copy directly from the Head Homosexual.

    It follows below:

    6:00 am Gym
    8:00 am Breakfast (oatmeal and egg whites)
    9:00 am Hair appointment
    10:00 am Shopping
    12:00 PM Brunch

    2:00 PM 1) Assume complete control of the U.S. Federal, State and Local Governments as well as all other national governments, 2) Recruit all straight youngsters to our debauched lifestyle, 3) Destroy all healthy heterosexual marriages, 4) Replace all school counselors in grades K-12 with agents of Colombian and Jamaican drug cartels, 5) Establish planetary chain of "homo breeding gulags" where over-medicated imprisoned straight women are turned into artificially impregnated baby factories to produce prepubescent love slaves for our devotedly pederastic gay leadership, 6) bulldoze all houses of worship, and 7) Secure total control of the INTERNET and all mass media for the exclusive use of child pornographers.

    2:30 PM Get forty winks of beauty rest to prevent facial wrinkles from stress of world conquest

    4:00 PM Cocktails

    6:00 PM Light Dinner (soup, salad, with Chardonnay)

    8:00 PM Theater

    11:00 PM Bed (du jour)?

  9. Ditto BOBBYJOE.

  10. Dear God, why must I share a last name with this man? ;-(

  11. It does seem really unfair how people treated Tim Tebow as compared to Michael Sam, if you completely ignore the tons of adoration heaped on Tebow and the slew of invective hurled at Sam.

  12. This lengthier video was edited short from CNN's entire crossfire. At the end Bill Weir asked the bigoted guest to address his personal feelings of Sam's homosexuality and same-sex marriage of which he hedged it with the typical baseless religious talking point of him being a Christian and what is referred in the Bible. What an idiotic robot.

  13. Ken Blackwell distinguishes himself from the rest of FRC by his polished skill at talking out of both sides of his mouth. While drumming out the party line, he still manages to sound like a football guru.

  14. Sam is gay. Tebow is straight. Tebow chose to be a Christian. One of these things is not like the others.

    Thanks for adding the edit button.

  15. How terrible it must be to be these guys, who have to live their lives with such immaturity.

    Posted by: Jack M | May 14, 2014 7:57:40 AM

  16. does anyone want to kiss Bill Weir?

    Posted by: David | May 14, 2014 8:05:41 AM

  17. So, if a straight man kissed his wife upon finding out about being drafted to the NFL, that would be fine, right?

    Seriously, it was a kiss! That's all.

    These people are acting like these guys whipped their penises out and started fellating each other like there's no tomorrow. So, men are not allowed to kiss without some kind of backlash? Must we do another kiss-in so that eventually these idiots are immune to seeing it?

  18. Being gay harms no one. Being christian, on the other hand . . .

  20. @Johnny - It was a kiss *and* a hug. It's the hug that put it over the top! All of those muscles rubbing against each other. ***swoon***
