MLB to honour gay pioneer
Glenn Burke at all-star game

Guardian [UK], by Amanda Holpuch

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 7/15/2014 11:00:35 PM

New York — More than two decades after Glenn Burke abruptly retired from Major League Baseball, the former LA Dodgers outfielder will be honored at Tuesday night’s all-star game as one of the few professional athletes to have come out. Burke´s four-and-a-half year career is remembered for his charismatic attitude and the pressures he faced as a gay athlete in the late 1970s. (Snip) MLB will honor Burke’s contributions at a Tuesday press conference, where it is also set to announce that it is ramping up LGBT inclusion efforts by working with retired player Billy Bean, who came

Comments:
Viewer alert; Major League Gaysball is planning a little in-your-face during the All-Star Game, to stimulate conversation with your kids. Must we all pretend to be homosexual, just to put a stop to this foolishness?

The quote at the end of the article is good for a chuckle.

And he is being ´honored´ for his sexual deviancy?

What happened to our country?

So will MLB honor other former players that died of syphilis? Gonorrhea? Dying with an STD is now an ´honor´? Maybe MLB should honor Idi Amin Dada since he died of syphilis.

Pre-emptive apology if this offends anyone.

"MLB would like to honor you for being a doo doo chaser and would like to present to you this statue of President Obama the first gay president".

He lasted for four years, hitting a grand total of 2 home runs and compiling a .237 lifetime batting average, pathetic stats for an outfielder. If he gets booed, is it because the fans are homophobes, racists, or simply because the guy does not belong there with legitimate stars?

"Prejudice drove me out of baseball sooner than it should have," Burke told the New York Times in 1994.

Yeah...well that and a 200 batting average.

If this is the most courageous case the LGBT crowd can come up with, then they are in much better shape than I thought.

To the deviancy comment... please. The issue is celebrating sexuality of ANY kind. As the Edwardian duchess said, and I paraphrase... "I don´t care what you do, just don´t do it in the street and scare the horses..."

#9, I add to that a comment by the English actress Hermione Gingold many years ago on a talk show. She was asked about the trend toward showing the seamier sides of life in movies. The host said, why not, it´s all part of life?

Her terrific answer: Well, so is diarrhea, but we don´t show that.

Unfortunately, and perhaps it´s good Ms. Gingold isn´t here to see it, now they do show that.

we were at the game..
not sure when they honored this deviant..
was it on tv?
we went up to get souveniers and food in the fifth inning..
also..
was the "love water not oil" banner shown on tv?
some commies draped it over the right field large screen tv and it was left up for about half an hour..
twenty five thousand cops all over the place and this was somehow put up.. i almost think the Twins/mlb allowed it.. it could´ve been a BOMB!
i am cancelling my season tickets tomorrows..
mlb is not a place where i want to take kids or grandkids anymore..
good place for homosexual communists, though..

The latest survey from the CDC shows that just under 3% of Americans identify themselves as ‘gay’, bi-sexual, lesbian (by the way, aren’t lesbians also ‘gay’?).

Why, then, is this relatively rare choice/condition so prevalently insinuated into every facet of our lives – from being mentioned somewhere in virtually every TV program, to forcibly being ‘celebrated’ in our schools and on our university campuses, and to being honored and cheered at sporting events and press conferences?

Who can explain why private sexual practices are so worthy of special recognition and mention (incredibly even by our President, Attorney General, etc.)?

When polled, as astounding number of Americans recently stated that they didn’t think that America was ‘exceptional’. Perhaps this answer was a reflection of their disgust for our current degenerating culture rather than a statement about our historic and traditional values and deeds.

2 home runs and batted .200. If he weren´t so lite in the loafers, he might actually have even been a player.

Now if he´d "played" in S.F. there would likely be a 35 ft. statue of Glenny in front that park.

All manner of businesses are under increasing pressure from gay activist groups to show they are gay friendly. Corporations from Mozilla to the Minnesota Twins to Major League Baseball are getting leaned on by these fascist pressure groups. And corporations with few exceptions are gutless and cave into the constant shrill demands and hoping to avoid escalation. Hence MLB scrambles to resurrect and laughably lionize a marginal talent like Glenn Burke. That´s the best they could do. MLB is just feeding the fascist beast, hoping it will placate it. Yes, gutless.

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)
