The Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarians (LGBT) are angry that the St. Louis Cardinals are holding a ‘Christian Day,’ which the team has done for 30 years. They are also angry that the Cardinals are allowing former player Lance Berkman to be the spokesman for Christian Day. Berkman had previously said mean, intolerant things (in their opinion) about the transgendereds. Like this:
The issue is, what to do about a 15 or 16-year-old boy who thinks he’s a girl and wants to shower with the girls. Maybe he is [transgender], maybe he’s confused. But I wouldn’t want him in the shower with my daughters. We shouldn’t have the rights of 2 percent of the population trump the rights of the other 98 percent.
Which is, of course, a ‘dog whistle’ for ‘Kill all the gays and transgendereds!” I guess, or something, according to the Bullying Totalitarians. (Any opinions not precisely in line with the social justice left are “Hate Speech.”) They want the event canceled, Berkman to be sent to tolerance camp, the team colors changed to pink and teal, and massive extortion payments to be made to LGBT organizations. So far, the Cardinals aren’t backing down.
Why do I suspect that a ‘Muslim Day’ would not be a problem?
