The Denver Broncos has told “gay” groups that the team supports an anti-bullying campaign that applies to all groups of people.That’s not good enough for the members of the LGBT community and their supporters, who want the team to come out in support of the LGBT movement to the apparent exclusion of others who are affected by bullying.
Denver resident, Andy Szekeres, has started an online petition asking the Denver Broncos to be the first NFL team to produce a video for “It Gets Better.” The “It Gets Better” campaign began last fall and was founded by Dan Savage, a “gay” sex columnist, following a string of highly publicized “gay” teen suicides in 2009.
The project features videos of people encouraging LGBT teens to hang in there.
Savage is known for his vulgar and raunchy columns. He was also responsible for “bullying” Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum by creating a “Google bomb” that attached a vile sex term to the candidate’s name.
Savage has engaged in other hateful comments such as saying on Bill Maher’s television show, “I wish all Republicans were f***ing dead.” Savage has also said on HBO that he wanted to rape Santorum.
During an interview with the Washington Post earlier this year, Tebow’s publicist would not permit a question to be asked about same-sex marriage. Tebow has not came out one way or the other on the issue, but pro-gay groups appear to want him to affirm their lifestyle.
Responding to the petition to make a video for Savage’s “It Gets Better” campaign, Broncos spokesman, Patrick Smyth, told the Huffington Post that the NFL does combat intolerance and prejudice.
“The Denver Broncos are committed to tolerance, acceptance and respect for all in the community. The National Football League is currently working with USA Network on its ‘Characters Unite’ campaign combating prejudice and intolerance, and our organization is in full support of that movement to help raise awareness for this very important cause.”
Characters Unite says its mission is to create a “multiplatform campaign designed to help form a more perfect union by combating intolerance, prejudice, discrimination and hate, and promoting greater acceptance, understanding and mutual respect of all people.”
LGBT members would, presumably, qualify as part of the “all people” mentioned in the statement.
Szekeres told the Huffington Post that the Broncos’ standing against all forms of bullying is “not enough.” He wants the team to specifically stand up against LGBT bullying. Michael Jones, senior organizer at change.org, said, “While any effort to confront discrimination should be celebrated, the nearly 8,000 people who’ve signed this petition are hoping the Broncos will stand up and condemn a particular type of discrimination: anti-LGBT bullying.”
The website queerty.com also complained about the Broncos support for Characters Unite because they do not single out the LGBT community for special recognition. “Apparently the team (or its management) felt they already do enough by supporting USA Network’s “Character’s Unite” campaign which doesn’t even mention any specific support for the LGBT community.”
Queerty also has said that it is a fact that the LGBT community wants to recruit children to become part of the “gay” lifestyle. Daniel Villarreal wrote for the publication that he was frustrated that “gay” leaders were not willing to admit they wanted to recruit children into the lifestyle.
Responding to an ad by the National Organization for Marriage that opposed New York’s marriage equality bill, Villarreal lamented the “gay” movement’s reaction to the ads.
“They accuse us of exploiting children and in response we say, “‘NOOO! We’re not gonna make kids learn about homosexuality… we swear! It’s not like we’re trying to recruit your children or anything.’”
Villareal then proceeds to say that is precisely what they want to do. “But let’s face it—that’s a lie. We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it.”
He continued, “I and a lot of other people want to indoctrinate, recruit, teach, and expose children to queer sexuality AND THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.” He was even more explicit in his goals for children, saying, “I would very much like for many of these young boys to grow up and start f****** men.” Villarreal also said he would like for “young ladies to develop” into lesbians.
