COURTS: Gay softball is a judicial matter?

Re: “Softball league can limit nongays, judge says” (TNT, 6-3).

In a time when we’re firing teachers, seemingly unable to manage tolls properly and have no money to provide basic health care to children, we have the time and the federal organization to adjudicate whether organizers of a gay softball tournament held in 2008 were correct to vacate the second-place finish of a team because that team included too many bisexuals.

Are you kidding me!?

I believe everyone has the right to live the lifestyle they choose and society has a duty to protect those rights, but could we please find a bit more productive uses for our public funds than arguing the results of a softball tournament?

    Are you nominating yourself to be the person who decides who can or cannot file a lawsuit?

    Nick- libs view the court as their parents when it comes to settling disputes. Obomba is their god. Government is their church and other peoples’ money is their money.

    Would we be discussing this if it had been racial discrimination? The courts exist to settle these kind of disputes, rather than everyone pulling out their guns.

    So the gay players have a low tolerence for the bisexual players? … priceless.

  5. whitecap says:

    So let me get this straight…no wait, wrong word. I find it very queer…oops, wrong again.
    So, what, these guys weren’t gay enough? Maybe don’t ask, don’t tell would work.
