I know there’s a lot of other pressing shit going on but since the NCAA is only concerned with guys pressing their dicks into other people’s shit being able to eat a wedding cake I thought I’d tool around on this topic.
To wit, Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s recent signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that ostensibly allows private business owners to not be forced to violate their faith in the wake of the federal government and their minions in the courts enthusiastically sodomizing businesses into closure for not celebrating the homosexual agenda.
Enter stage left. NCAA President Mark Emmert immediately threatens to take his balls and go to Fire Island or wherever:
The NCAA, which is holding the Final Four men’s basketball tournament in Indianapolis next week, also expressed concerns. NCAA President Mark Emmert said the Indianapolis-based group would examine “how it might affect future events as well as our workforce.”
By all means, please reevaluate where the NCAA’s modern day slavery will play or be based out of in the future. A man who governs a
But this, this is just a Golden Gate Bridge too far. The NCAA may not be able to blackmail the State of Indiana into accepting the recent unholy union of the Gaystapo and the federal government in their celebratory mazel tov as they stomp their matching jackboots on the throats of the Little Sisters of the Poor, Notre Dame, Hobby Lobby, etc. but there are a number of things that are in their control.
For example, how committed are the league’s players to taking it to the hole? I mean I know the NCAA screws their players over regularly but they could easily demand that their players sign a statement affirming their commitment to gay rights before being allowed to play.
A number of them appear to have tattoos of religions that do not condone homosexuality. Those should be removed as they are quite microaggressive.
March 31st is International Transgender Day of Visibility. Perhaps the men’s teams and the women’s teams can switch uniforms for that day to underscore the NCAA’s commitment to denying both science and Nature. The fact that they haven’t done this yet offends me.
Given that NCAA games can be located in every state of the union, some of which are bound to adopt similar laws to Indiana’s, this is a declaration of war that could start a competing league. Why should a state like Indiana have to continue to provide logistical support to this non-profit association? Does the NCAA build gymnasiums and football stadiums or do the taxpayers of the states that support these laws?
This isn’t a codification of state sponsored discrimination. It is a natural reaction to a federal government that is forcing private citizens to take part in ceremonies against their religious beliefs or be shut down and it is without end. If the federal government can force you to violate your religious beliefs, they can compel you to do anything.
Personally, I don’t think any of these issues are cut and dry. How is this different than a “No shirt, No Shoes, No Service” sign? A bar that says they reserve the right to refuse service to any customer?
Ideally, if someone does not want my business – say a restaurateur who puts a “no guns in my restaurant” sign to discourage concealed carriers – then I just don’t frequent that business. I can’t demand that the federal government sue him into providing private catering services to my NRA function at the gun range. The right to bear arms is a civil rights issue after all. This man, let’s call him Randy Rayburn, does not even have a religious exemption on this issue. His property rights should not supersede my civil rights.
But people can’t just be left alone. The Soup Nazis must be brought before Nuremburg. To proactively protect those who may want to buy a cake from someone who doesn’t want to bake them a cake and who base the decision to buy a cake solely on who doesn’t want to make it for them so they can sue them.
We must be supremely intolerant of the intolerant in the name of tolerance.
