  •  Broussard's comment really bothered me. (12+ / 0-)

    I like the guy and I usually don't change my radio dial when I hear him comment on the NBA.  So hearing that level of ignorance was disappointing.  Tim Brando is a moron.  Typical ignorance displayed by someone who comfortably lives in the majority and never has any social challenges simply because of who he is.  I never understood how someone's sexual orientation impacted or denigrated the value of a traditional family lifestyle.

    •  The classic... (14+ / 0-)

      "The world is passing me by" remark, if you ask me (Tim Brando's I mean).

      I didn't know enough about Broussard, but now that I read up thread that he does a lot of prosthelytizing under the guise of sportscasting, I'm not impressed.

      I'm not anti-religion, or even anti-faith, but I am very strongly anti-prosthelytizing. That's one of the the more offensive things I can think of in the realm of religion and those denominations that practice it, I think, have no sense of respect, which means to me, at least, they have no real sense of religion.

      Any religion that's into that kind of spiritual dominance, or imperialism or "one true religion" stuff is by definition anti-religious, since that's just a form of authoritarian power, which is antithetical to the "treat others as you would yourself" tenet.
