Why Michael Sam´s coming out
is not an unnecessary ´distraction´

Los Angeles Times, by Nico Lang

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/15/2014 9:51:27 PM

On Sunday, college football star Michael Sam stood on the precipice of making history. The University of Missouri lineman and NFL draft hopeful came out as gay in an interview with the New York Times, potentially making him the first openly gay NFL player. Before his announcement, Sam was projected to be a mid-to-late-round pick in May’s draft. But according to Sports Illustrated, his stock may be falling. There has been some negative reaction from NFL personnel; in the SI article, one source labeled Sam’s sexuality an unnecessary “distraction.” “There are guys in locker rooms that maturity-wise cannot handle it or deal

Comments:
Like the Military, football is a BLOOD sport. It can be everywhere and anywhere at a blink of an eye. I remember the great Magic Johnson having to retire early because players wisely didn´t want to get his blood, let alone sweat on themselves because of his known AIDS infection. Since AIDS information has died out with invention of expensive drugs to keep carriers alive longer (manageable), we are no less closer to understanding the "incubation" period as to how soon does the virus become deadly in a new "victim" through sex or sharing needles.

The NFL draft will be a Michael Sam circus this year. No mock draft has him listed in the first round, but when each team is up for their turn, the cameras will be on Sam and when he isn´t drafted, they will speculate that it is because he is openly gay.

#2, not just the draft, but the entire NFL season will be a Michael Sam circus (at least for the team that drafts him). On the other hand, if the press treated his being gay the way they are saying that the NFL should, there wouldn´t be an issue.

Michael Sam has been a great encouragement for me. I am totally impressed with his boldness in openly admitting his sexual preference, even though he knows that many disapprove of it.

I want to follow his example. I admit that I have struggled with my sexual preference for years--always being too embarrassed to mention it to anyone. But now, I am coming out of the closet. I confess that I like women, I find them attractive in so many ways--physically, emotionally, and yes, sexually. Not only so, but I find that I am attracted to monogamy.

I hope my wife will be willing to stand with me as I openly admit I have taken her as my life partner. I love her and prefer her over any other woman on earth.

Let the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the L.A. Times do with me what they will...

No #5, he is not necessarily a sodomite. You do not know for sure what he does with his partner. You merely assume. He is a homosexual. That means he is attracted to the same sex. But unless you personally know what goes on in his bedroom, you do not know what things he does or does not engage in. I wonder...are heterosexual couples who engage in backdoor sexual relations considered "sodomites"? I mean technically they are doing the same act as most (but not all) homosexual men engage in.

There´s been a lot of speculation on this issue, but I´ve read nothing---Now I´ll admit I´ve paid little attention, and could have missed it . . ., but nothing touching the real reason he came ´out´.

I think he´s only a fairly good football player, and all the scouts knew he was gay anyway; so, his AGENT advised him, that by coming out he will put the teams under pressure to draft in a slot above his skill level: In short, his agent played the political correct card.

bench him ... it´s because he´s gay. fire him ... it´s because he´s gay. Doesn´t get along with other players, it´s because he´s gay. Anything negative with him will be because he is gay. Gets injured ... targeted because he´s gay. Therefore, cannot fire him, bench him, say anything negative about him. The first time something goes wrong, lawsuit/boycott. Wise not to draft him.

Homosexuality is either right or it´s wrong. The question is, who determines what is right and what is wrong; God or man? God says it´s wrong. Natural Law says it´s wrong. Our physical makeup says it´s wrong.
But many humans think they should be able to dictate what is right and wrong but to do so humans must either ignore God or deny His existence.
For homosexuality to be right and exceptable within a society, God must be shunned and abandoned along with His followers.
If God has no say or influence in our nation then our unalienable rights are no longer granted by God as stated in the Declaration of Independence. Men and women are at the mercy of people with more power and more money. People who legislate laws will make them up as they go, always changing and always in their favor. Inequality will be the norm as the powerful have they way with the commoner. That can only lead to tyranny, tribal rule, or survival of the fittest. America will be uninhabitable by law abiding citizens. Family and marriage will be marginalized into non-existent; defined by whatever society says it is, equating to more out of marriage births, more dysfunctional families, more crime and more chaos.
Don´t think homosexuality is damaging to our founding documents, to marriage and family, to our culture and nation and to humanity? Think again!

What #8 said. My belief has been all along that this was a calculated move on his (and his Agent´s) part to move up in the draft. Like our correspondent said, he was/is a mid-level to lower level draft prospect, but has now made himself into a media sensation.

Who wants to bet that after some period of time, he sees the light and flips again? (no pun intended)

#10, God also said divorce is wrong, but that didn´t prompt us to make Ronald Reagan the cause of everything bad in America, did it?

We are more than a sum of our body parts -- to think otherwise means humans are no more than just rutting animals who should procreate and nothing more.

The mantra that being gay somehow is disproportionately responsible for society´s ills is ludicrous. You straight people have done enough damage on your own.

I am sick of the Michael Sam story, but before it runs away it should be noted that not every gay person is HIV positive let alone has AIDS. Magic Johnson was HIV positive, which affects the body´s immune system, but modern medicine apparently controlled his condition so that it never progressed to AIDS, which is a diagnosis of certain "opportunistic infections" that hit the HIV positive person if their immune system becomes too compromised.

Michael Sam is a media distraction.

Living near St. Louis, this has been the non-stop story of late. He had told the University of Missouri and his teammates at the beginning of this season, and has been seen around campus with a significant other so it wasn´t a big deal in Columbia. The scuttlebutt was that he was going to be outed by some media source so he and his agent decided to get on top of the story so that his side is what got explained.

From a draft perspective it should be a neutral reaction based on his ability to play, but of course the media circus that surrounds this will likely make it a negative for him. Best case scenario would be either an organization that already has a strong enough locker room to put up with the media attention, or an ownership group looking for a cause to promote. The former would be better for Sam.

Asia seeks Obama’s

Associated Press, by Julie Pace    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/19/2014 1:38:47 PM     Post Reply
Washington - As President Barack Obama travels through Asia this coming week, he will find a region that’s warily watching the crisis in Ukraine through the prism of its own territorial tensions with China. Each of the four countries on Obama’s itinerary — Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — has a dispute with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas. (Snip) Administration officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, have taken a tougher line on the territorial issues in recent weeks, sternly warning China against the use of military force and noting that the U.S. has not formally taken sides on the question

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

Washington - The National Archives on Friday released its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics including the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures as varied as Richard M. Nixon and Oprah Winfrey. The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016. Here are some notable sections:

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection.

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W.
