    SLIDING EVER CLOSER TO GOMORRAH Michael Sam is drafted (fittingly) by the RAMS.

    CNN has a clip on it’s front page.
    NBC has HUGE display on its front page + an additional Sam story, plus Naval Academy’s first gay marriage.
    CBS has clickable image of Sam on front page.
    ESPN has 2 Sam articles on the front page queue. No other NFL news.
    NFL.com Sam on front page, “The pick heard round the world.” (Pick #249 don’t forget)
    St. Louis Rams website: Top Stories in the queue, 3/5 are of Sam. (Pick #249 don’t forget)
    Huffington Post has HUGE photo of Sam kissing boyfriend. “NFL, MEET 2014.”
    Salon.com, same.

    How in the world did 2% of the population go from criminals, to social criminals, to mentally ill, to sexual deviants, to gay, to alternative lifestyles, to ACCEPTED by the other 98%? BRAVO! Amazing turn around in about 40 years.
    Liberals are patient. They inch the ball forward, or by feet if possible, but the ball always moves forward, and at worst, a complete stand-still, but never back.

    Nearly 6000 years of recorded human history, and finally in 2014, homosexuality is defined as “progress.” -well done indeed.

    Be on the look out Conservatives! The next frontier will slowly inch towards SEX WITH MINORS which has always been the goal of the gay agenda, until they broke away from the NAMBLA crowd to pursue adult gay acceptance first. And, gays can adopt children of course. They eventually will bring them back into the fold over time.
    The legal gay age of consent in London is 16, and you can already hear the whispers from America gays/liberals “London is progressive and has had age of consent laws for years! Time for America to stop living in the stone ages already!”

    Next Frontier, “Total Sexual Equality”, look for it.

      And once again, the world’s most notable top gay sports fan Obama comes out and hailed him Saturday nite. Considering his 2nd weekend in row of meeting and partying with celebrities they probably had an orgy to celebrate.

      No doubt the famous stars lost their attention of the a hypocritical radical Muslim that owns the Beverly Hills Hotel.
      It amazes me it’s not a crime for any money made at the hotel to be funnelled to a country that enforces Sharia Law.

      So, sad. So, sad. I’ve hit a point I want to tell people it’s best not to have children anymore. The Bible does say woe to the woman with child.

      I used to think it meant woe to a woman pregnant in the times of the earth’s massive destruction, but I wonder it means it will be extra hard on a woman who has the extra difficulty of running holding a child in her arms.

      I think they need to let less harmful prisoners out of prison and to make room for more child sex offenders and people that are caught in human traffic.

      I wonder what happened to that guy that worked for ACORN in California that saw nothing wrong in the aiding of underage girls for prostitution.

      UPDATE As of Sunday night, NONE of the 5 news links on NFL.com concerning Michael Sam were available for submitting comments. Apparently, the public has no reason to tow the party-line. Other news items were available.

      Latest Headlines looked like this:

      Sam: I’m ready to show the world I’m ready to work | Mayock
      Rams draft Michael Sam at No. 249 | Fisher: Let’s go get Sam
      Dolphins’ Jones disciplined for offensive tweets regarding Sam

      Apparently, NO ONE is allowed to have any negative say about this guy. What a pity. Most of American history, a person supporting homosexuality would have be run out of town, fired from their job, disciplined, re-educated (probably not, but at least given a dirty look) but now anyone with morality is the one told to leave town by sundown. Be careful: It will soon be the day when the Bible and its followers will be labeled as unacceptable bigots. Then Christians will have to dig back down into the catacombs to pray in private, away from the eyes and ears of the intolerant sinful / secular world.

    This Day In History

    May 14, 1973:
    Skylab launched

    Skylab, America’s first space station, is successfully launched into an orbit around the earth. Eleven days later, U.S. astronauts Charles Conrad, Joseph Kerwin, and Paul Weitz made a rendezvous with Skylab, repairing a jammed solar panel and conducting scientific experiments during their 28-day stay aboard the space station.
    The first manned Skylab mission came two years after the Soviet Union launched Salynut, the world’s first space station, into orbit around the earth. However, unlike the ill-fated Salynut, which was plagued with problems, the American space station was a great success, safely housing three separate three-man crews for extended periods of time and exceeding pre-mission plans for scientific study.
    Five years after the last Skylab mission, the space station’s orbit began to deteriorate faster than expected, owing to unexpectedly high sunspot activity. On July 11, 1979, the parts of the space station that did not burn up in the atmosphere came crashing down on Australia and into the Indian Ocean.

    May 14, 1955:
    The Warsaw Pact is formed

    The Soviet Union and seven of its European satellites sign a treaty establishing the Warsaw Pact, a mutual defense organization that put the Soviets in command of the armed forces of the member states.
    The Warsaw Pact, so named because the treaty was signed in Warsaw, included the Soviet Union, Albania, Poland, Romania, Hungary, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, and Bulgaria as members. The treaty called on the member states to come to the defense of any member attacked by an outside force and it set up a unified military command under Marshal Ivan S. Konev of the Soviet Union. The introduction to the treaty establishing the Warsaw Pact indicated the reason for its existence. This revolved around “Western Germany, which is being remilitarized, and her inclusion in the North Atlantic bloc, which increases the danger of a new war and creates a threat to the national security of peace-loving states.”

    May 14, 1999:
    Clinton apologizes to Chinese leader for embassy bombing
    President Bill Clinton apologizes directly to Chinese President Jiang Zemin on the phone for the accidental NATO bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, that had taken place six days earlier. Clinton promised an official investigation into the incident.

    This Day In History

    May 16, 1918:
    U.S. Congress passes Sedition Act

    On May 16, 1918, the United States Congress passes the Sedition Act, a piece of legislation designed to protect America’s participation in World War I.
    Along with the Espionage Act of the previous year, the Sedition Act was orchestrated largely by A. Mitchell Palmer, the United States attorney general under President Woodrow Wilson. The Espionage Act, passed shortly after the U.S. entrance into the war in early April 1917, made it a crime for any person to convey information intended to interfere with the U.S. armed forces’ prosecution of the war effort or to promote the success of the country’s enemies.
    in 1921 when the Sedition Act was repealed by Congress. Major portions of the Espionage Act remain part of United States law to the present day, although the crime of sedition was largely eliminated by the famous libel case Sullivan v. New York Times (1964), which determined that the press’s criticism of public officials—unless a plaintiff could prove that the statements were made maliciously or with reckless disregard for the truth—was protected speech under the First Amendment.

    “Whoever, when the United States is at war, shall willfully make or convey false reports or false statements with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States, or to promote the success of its enemies, or shall willfully make or convey false reports or false statements, or say or do anything except by way of bona fide and not disloyal advice to an investor or investors, with intent to obstruct the sale by the United States of bonds or other securities of the United States or the making of loans by or to the United States, and whoever when the United States is at war, shall willfully cause or attempt to cause, or incite or attempt to incite, insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or shall willfully obstruct or attempt to obstruct the recruiting or enlistment services of the United States, and whoever, when the United States is at war, shall willfully utter, print, write or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the form of government of the United States or the Constitution of the United States, or the military or naval forces of the United States, or the flag of the United States, or the uniform of the Army or Navy of the United States into contempt, scorn, contumely, or disrepute, or shall willfully utter, print, write, or publish any language intended to incite, provoke, or encourage resistance to the United States, or to promote the cause of its enemies, or shall willfully display the flag of any foreign enemy, or shall willfully by utterance, writing, printing, publication, or language spoken, urge, incite, or advocate any curtailment of production in this country of any thing or things, product or products, necessary or essential to the prosecution of the war in which the United States may be engaged, with intent by such curtailment to cripple or hinder the United States in the prosecution of war, and whoever shall willfully advocate, teach, defend, or suggest the doing of any of the acts or things in this section enumerated, and whoever shall by word or act support or favor the cause of any country with which the United States is at war or by word or act oppose the cause of the United States therein, shall be punished by a fine of not more than $10,000 or the imprisonment for not more than twenty years, or both….”

    The Sedition Act of 1918 was an amendment to the Espionage Act of 1917 passed by Congress at the urging of President Woodrow Wilson, who was concerned that any antiwar speech and organizing to oppose the draft and the war effort constituted a real threat to an American victory.
    The Sedition Act forbade Americans to use “disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language” about the United States government, flag, or armed forces during war. The act also allowed the Postmaster General to deny mail delivery to dissenters of government policy during wartime.
    The Espionage Act made it a crime to help wartime enemies of the United States, but the Sedition Act made it a crime to utter, print, write or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the United States’ form of government
