    In the 50's a lot of people were upset by photos of a black man and woman kissing being shown. Eating in the same restaurant was forbidden.
    In the 60's and 70's, interracial marriage and dating was shocking. "Look Who's Coming to Dinner" was a big deal in 1967. The Star Trek first kiss was huge for some.
    Now it's gay marriage and showing of gay affection. Times evolve and so will this. The percentage of the population that approves of gay marriage is skyrocketing. It takes extra time for some people.
    You can't associate being black or any other race with being Gay. I didn't choose to be the color and race I am. Being born gay is a debate not fit for this forum. I'm happy we got Sam because he's a playmaker. I could care less about what he does off the field out of site. Off the field is between he and GOD. I cannot judge for ALL have sinned and fallen short.

    My Point of this Thread was to state I don't agree with the form of punishment dished out towards Don Jones.

    Seriously?

    That guy's publicity to talent ratio was higher than anyone East of the Kardashians.
    I said Christians, not just Tebow. And yes, Christianity which is truly protected by the constitution and bill of rights (as a religion) is being absolutely brutalized in this country.

    What he said. The donkeys should have kept him as their QB, at least until they got Manning. They did worse without him than they did with him. He wasn't perfect, but he had the ability to lead his team. I personally believe Tebow was not given a chance because some in the league wanted to silence him.
