Former PGA champion and sometimes Palm Beach Gardens visitor Steve Elkington did that thing athletes and celebrities do and said some dumb things on his Twitter.

Specifically, Elkington ripped ESPN's coverage of openly gay Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, calling the sports network's reportage "embarrassing" and attempting what was a pretty lame joke.

"ESPN reporting Michael Sam is leading the handbag throw at NFL combine," Elkington tweeted out. "No one else expected to throw today."

Get it? Because all The Gays carry purses like ladies do. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha.

Michael Sam Would Be Welcomed by Dolphins With Open Arms, Says Stephen Ross

Categories: Sports, The Gays

Earlier this week, Missouri defensive end Michael Sam's college coach said certain NFL teams would likely not accept him as the first openly gay pro football player. And then he went and cited the Miami Dolphins by name as one of those teams.

Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel singled out the Dolphins specifically and namely because of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin fiasco that has engulfed the team over the past year.

But on Wednesday, Dolphins team owner Stephen Ross said that not only would his team welcome Sam if they happened to draft him but that they would do so with open arms.

Michael Sam May Not Be Welcomed by Dolphins, Coach Says

Categories: Sports, The Gays

Missouri star defensive end Michael Sam announced that he's gay Sunday night. And, since then, the internet has been buzzing about what this could potentially do to the NFL once Sam, who is the reigning SEC Defensive Player of the Year, is drafted in April.

For the most part, players have Tweeted out their support to Sam and are ready to welcome him into the league. Others have anonymously said an openly gay player would be a distraction to some teams -- particularly teams that don't seem to be ready to accept a gay player.

According to Sam's college head coach, one of those teams is probably the Miami Dolphins.

Students Revolt After Mark Zmuda, Former Cardinal Gibbons Teacher, Is Forced to Resign from Catholic School for Being Gay

Yesterday afternoon, I heard a story about a group of students at Eastside Catholic School in Sammamish, Washington. They staged a sit-in to protest the forced resignation of their gay vice principal. This was due to his recent marriage to another man. Because the high school is a private Catholic one, this marriage had violated his contract. In protest of the decision, hundreds of students refused to go to class.

Later, I learned that the vice principal at the center of the controversy is Mark Zmuda, a former high school teacher of mine from Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale.

Zmuda reportedly married Dana Jergens last July, seven months after gay marriage became legal in Washington. School officials said that he had violated his contract and that the decision to force his resignation was made by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle.

Drink the gay away.
Marco Rubio hates The Gays. Well, he doesn't hate them as much as he doesn't want them getting married to each other, or being able to fight off workplace discrimination, or adopting children, and pretty much getting any other right nongays get across the board.

So, Rubez was a natural choice to gave the keynote address at the Florida Family Policy Council fundraising dinner over the weekend.

And, as expected, it was filled with bigotry and nonsense about religious freedoms being attacked and values and morality and other meandering crap that has nothing to do with making America anything other than a GAY FREE nation.

The Gays shouldn't have jobs. That's not me talking. THAT'S SCIENCE!
It's taking longer than it should, but a bill that forbids discrimination against gays and lesbians in the workplace is closer to being a reality.

On Tuesdays, a bipartisan group of legislators, movers, and shakers got together to say that it's bad for employers to discriminate against someone just because that person is gay. It's slow progress, but progress nonetheless.

Conspicuously absent from the proceedings was Sen. Marco Rubio.

Huh. Head scratcher!

Gay FAU Student Says School Library Refused to Help Because He Looks Like a Woman

A Florida Atlantic University student claims that he was turned away by the school's library because he looks and acts like a woman.

The student, Abdul Asquith, says that he needed to check out a laptop for school work on Wednesday. But, he says, the librarian turned him down because his student ID says he's a male, but that he "sounds, looks, and acts" like a girl.
