If you were paying attention, you may have noticed that former NBA basketball player Tim Hardaway publicly commented: “I don’t like gay people and I don’t like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don’t like it. It shouldn’t be in the world or in the United States.” Naturally, just about everyone bashed Hardaway, and he has been banished from any association with the NBA.
Michael Medved performed a detailed analysis at Townhall and came to a simple conclusion:
“Those who insist that basketball teams or submarine crews must welcome gay recruits must, for the sake of consistency, argue for the same welcome to teammates of the opposite gender. That notion – that a male player could, for instance, join a WNBA team without serious problems – shows the way that political correctness now seems to deny the obvious, often overwhelming potency of human sexuality.”
Medved’s conclusion seems reasonable to me. Another fundamental question would appear to be: is homosexuality perfectly normal and a natural human right? I for one do not care if someone is afflicted with homosexuality. However, I don’t want people to “celebrate” homosexuality and try to convince me and my family that it’s perfectly normal.
