“Check your man card,” if you’d shower with Michael Sam, says CO Springs radio host

(Promoted by Colorado Pols)

With apologies to the film Steel Magnolias, starring Shirley MacClaine and Olympia Dukakis, here's a rant by a Colorado Springs talk-radio host against Michael Sam, the first openly gay man to (hopefully) be drafted into the National Football League.

The audio of the rant, by KVOR's Richard Randall, is overlaid on a segment of the 1989 movie.

WARNING: This video clip shows bare asses in a locker room, which are a big problem for Randall.

    I guess Randall would rather shower with Ted Haggard and Dr. Chaps.  " Check your man card " if you're not man enough to admit you're gay.

    What is it that makes right-wing blowhards so obsessed with the gayz and what the right-wing blowhards feverishly imagine might happen when they're in the company of straight men?

    I think the Republican handbook says being is not only godless and evil but also contagious.

    It's a psychological condition. 

    That's not hyperbole, it's an obvious truth. 

    Many of them probably feel a secret curiosity or desire which conflicts with their years of religious education telling them that it is evil. Rather than confront and deal with those emotions, they over-correct with overblown and obsessive persecution of those who are not as oppressed and confused as they are. Others follow them out of blind obedience to their religious/party leaders (what's the difference in the GOP anymore?), mirroring their constructed hatred without really knowing why.

    This spiral of projected and misplaced self-hatred has been spiralling out of control for decades now, and is reaching it's peak with places like Arkansas being forced to recognize gay marriage and major religions (see: Pope) no longer giving fuel to their fire. 

    In the end, once gay acceptance/tolerance is the mainstream, rather than the norm, the ravings of those repressed, homo-curious Christians will be what is shunned and the next generation can grow up in a world without the religious rhetoric that caused this cycle to start in the first place. 

    It will never go away completely (we still have active chapters of the KKK, after all.) But it will be relegated to the fringe where it belongs.
