The Olympics are supposed to bring people together through the celebration of athleticism around the globe.
So naturally, our president, Google and other groups are teaming up to take revenge on Russia by promoting homosexuality as the headline issue of the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Google, which changed its logo to rainbow colors to show support for homosexuals, is joining Olympic sponsor AT&T in zinging Russia for it’s homosexual propaganda law, which prohibits promotion of homosexuality to minors.
Homosexual activists have been pressuring sponsors of the U.S. Olympics team to come out against Russian morality and in support of homosexuals indoctrinating children.
That’s really what we’re talking about here.
Russia didn’t ban people from being homosexual, just promoting the lifestyle to impressionable kids.
Yes, it’s a restriction on free speech, but that isn’t what activist groups are outraged about. What upsets them is that someone told them to show some restraint and respect for different views of moral behavior.
“Russia’s law is harmful to LGBT individuals and families, and it’s harmful to a diverse society,” AT&T said in a blog post. A “diverse society” does not include anyone who opposes the homosexual lifestyle.
“We also want to be on record with our support for the LGBT community,” AT&T added, encouraging other sponsors to join it.
Meanwhile, President Obama, always classy, deliberately chose three homosexuals to fill out the U.S. delegation to the Sochi Games. Billie Jean King, Brian Boitano and Caitlin Cahow.
King gave a press conference in which she encouraged the press to keep asking questions about homosexuals at press conferences during the Games. Rule 50 for the Olympics prohibits athletes from engaging in any kind of political or religious protest, but it allows them to answer questions, King pointed out.
She claimed the in-your-face actions of Obama and homosexual activists are meant to get the International Olympics Committee to add sexual orientation to its list of characteristics that may not be used to discriminate against athletes.
Frankly, it seems more like it’s Obama’s attempt to “get back” at Putin for humiliating him last year over the drummed-up conflict in Syria. That the means for Obama’s revenge will also further one of his preferred divisive social issues is just gravy.
The Sochi Olympics are having a lot of problems, from security to wild dogs in the streets to really disgusting hotel water.
But the most embarrassing thing may be the behavior of our president and activists who want to turn the games into a political arena.
