The Cook County Board voted unanimously in support of the Gay Games – thanking sponsors Harris Bank and Kraft foods. Then the Illinois Family Institute – why is it always something with FAMILY in the title – got wind of it and convinced the Republican members of the Board to withdraw their names from the resolution. Then it gets better – a donor gives one of the Board membes $5,000 and the guy changes his song the next day. What an asshole. Says he:
I never really supported the resolution (THAT I VOTED FOR AND THAT PASSED UNANIMOUSLY) to begin with. I have always been supportive of family values, which does not include the gay and lesbian agenda (THAT I VOTED FOR AND THAT PASSED UNANIMOUSLY).
Do you know what the agenda of the gay games is? For a guy to play sports and not be shouted down as a ‘faggot’ and for a woman to play sports and not be degraded as a ‘bulldyke’. That’s about what it boils down to. Oh, and men’s sychronized swimming.
