    Politician tells Bisciotti to put a lid on BA's public support for same sex marriage (Merged)



    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-sex-marriage/

    Who the fuck does that guy think he is?

    I hope Bisciotti tells Democrat Burns to shove it.

    I think Bisciotti will handle this in the appropriate manner...

    Which is to say whatever letter Burns sent him immediately went into the garbage. Love BA, frankly love ANY athlete who is willing to stand by a belief, especially one I share with them.

    Let's leave the specific politics out of this. Point is, your political position shouldn't matter with your employment standing in ANY company. Not sure what Del. Burns is thinking, especially since the Democratic party in MD is certainly getting behind the Marriage Equality Act.

    No idea, but talk about some cajones to tell someone like Bisciotti that BA should essentially be muzzled ...wow.

    BA has every right to say what he wants. He's not out there on Sundays telling people in the stands he won't make a tackle if gays aren't allowed to marry, so it really doesn't matter.

    Last time I checked this was still America and as such BA has the right to his personal beliefs and to share them with whomever he pleases. Agree or Disagree with BA, at least the man has opinions and beliefs which is more than many these days.

    Brendon Ayanbadejo vs a politician?

    Story

    Seems that Baltimore County politician, Maryland House of Delegates member Emmett C. Burns Jr. does not like the fact that Brendon is pro gay marriage and has sent a letter to the Ravens to quell his opinions.

    I sincerely hope anyone who votes in his district to not vote for this man. Regardless of your stance on gay rights I believe that using your office to oppress free speech is appalling. Perhaps he would have been better served writing Brendon rather than rattling his sword at the team.

    Re: Brendon Ayanbadejo vs a politician?

    I think this subject matter can only lead to a politicized thread, which will ultimately cause message board members to yell at each other and get hot and bothered about a subject that has very little to do with the Ravens or football. Not that I disagree or agree with you, but I think this thread belongs in the Politics, Current Events and Off Topic forum.
    "A lot" is a two word expression denoting a great deal or greatly, as in "I like sunshine a lot." "Alot" is a lovable imaginary grammar monster. You can love a lot; you can love an alot; you can love alots a lot; but they are not the same thing.

    Well NFL.com thought it was worthy enough to post on their front page and because it regards the Ravens and a player, I think it is fine right here.

    I encourage people not to discuss the politics of the matter but the ideal that a football team, specifically the Ravens should cow to a politician regardless of the topic at hand.

    There's already a perfectly civil version of this thread in the Politics sub forum. I vote merge.

    I agree...although I do think the vast majority would think the delegate is a complete and utter moron...regardless of political affiliation.

    I guess Emmett C. Burns Jr. doesn't want to get re elected.

    This is better suited for the politics forum, thus it's been merged there.

    Which is why I find it curious that the same conservative people who (rightly) call out this douchehammer of a politician for trying to stop someone from expressing himself in a way that millions of other Americans get to have no problem turning around and arguing that gay and lesbian people don't deserve to be married to one another.

    Not that this has happened on this board as I've found that most members are more libertarian in nature and most either support gay marriage or universal civil unions. I'm in the latter camp in that I don't think the government has anymore business in my heterosexual business as it does in someone else's homosexual business. I think we should all have civil unions and if the church or temple or mosque or cult or whatever we belong to wants to bless said civil union and call it a marriage than go for that too if it's your thing.
