The anti-gay news outlet Renew America is upset that NBC Sports hired openly gay figure skater Johnny Weir to provide commentary for the upcoming Winter Olympics, and is warning parents not to let their children watch figure skating alone.
In a post on the site, Catholic News Agency’s Louie Verrecchio mocks Weir as “a flamboyant, cross-dressing, homosexual man who thinks he has a ‘husband'” and a model for “the moral decline of society.”
“So, unless you want your children exposed to the likes of Johnny Weir, an icon of the popular culture’s Hell bent determination to undermine the objective truth about marriage and family,” Verrecchio continues. “If you allow it at all, don’t let your children to watch the Olympics without supervision.”
Consider how far we’ve fallen over the last four years:
– The Connecticut Insurance Department joined several other states indirecting all health insurance companies operating in the state to provide “gender transition” coverage.
– Colorado Division of Civil Rights officials ruled against a suburban Colorado Springs school district saying it discriminated against a 6-year-old “transgender” boy, Coy Mathis, by preventing him from using the girls’ bathroom.
– The state of California became the first state to enact “transgender rights” for K-12 students, requiring public schools to allow those students to choose whichever restroom or locker room they want to use.
– Twelve more states have passed so-called “same-sex marriage” laws, raising the total from five to seventeen.
Each one of these quantum leaps in the moral decline of society took place in my own United States, but our neighbors to the north made their own contributions.
Bringing the discussion back to sports, Canadian media giant Rogers Sports Net unceremoniously fired anchor Damian Goddard in May of 2011 for sending out a Twitter message, from his personal account, on his own time, voicing his “support for the traditional and TRUE meaning of marriage.”
Goddard hasn’t worked in the industry since.
Think about that for a moment:
A respected sports anchor finds himself unemployed as a result of having voiced his Catholic faith on personal time; meanwhile, NBC Sports is pleased to hire a flamboyant, cross-dressing, homosexual man who thinks he has a “husband” in order to provide color commentary (presumably rainbow) to viewers worldwide during the upcoming Winter Olympics.
So, unless you want your children exposed to the likes of Johnny Weir, an icon of the popular culture’s Hell bent determination to undermine the objective truth about marriage and family, as well as the God-given characteristics that make us either male or female…
BE FOREWARNED: If you allow it at all, don’t let your children to watch the Olympics without supervision.
