RE: my SI.com column about the gay umpire. Here’s a sampling of some of the e-mails I’ve received. My general response has been: Dear [FILL IN NAME]: Do me a favor. Print out a copy of the e-mail you sent me, place it in an envelope and read it in 10 years. You’ll be ashamed. Best, Jeff Pearlman
Sir, I would just like to say, you have a lot of balls, calling a man a hateful bigot. Do you personally know this man, have you shaken his hand, or broke bread with him at his home. Your words “This was about being a bigot”. “This was about hate”. Sound pretty hateful themselves. Actually it sounds like the pot calling the kettle black. I would say that you sir are not much of a reporter if this is the best story that you could come up with by your deadline. And by the way, if your facts are correct then the only thing I can see that Brent did was state facts, just not in the politically correct way your lame ass liberal self would like to have heard them. You and the rest of the Liberal Media are exactly what’s wrong with this country today, Call a duck a duck, or shut the fuck up. If I have hurt you feelings in any way, well tough shit, suck it up cry baby and do your job, report news and stop slandering this man’s good name.
While you seem to stand up for gay rights I by no means share your views. It doesn’t make me a bigot, or homophobic. I’m offended by your statements that homosexuality will ever be an accepted form of lifestyle. Those people have something wrong with them, an unacceptable character flaw, and people like you who condone and accept their immoral sexuality are part of the problem. If they choose perversion, that’s their choice, I and the majority of normal functioning people will never accept or condone their life choices, nor will we agree with same sex marriage, or them allowed to be parents. It takes a man and a woman to procreate, not a man and a man or a woman and a woman. Those that are living that perverse lifestyle should be stripped of the right to be a parent as it gives the wrong message to children. Enough said!
Maybe you need to go with his faggot ass !!! If you like billy van faggot so much !!! It’s sports or have you forgot ! I think everybody wants to nicey nicey up sports !!! well sports are RAW !!!!!
That’s what Billy likes Raw meat up his ASSSSSSSS
Comparing homosexual behavior to race is also fraudulent. Homosexual behavior is sinful behavior; has been for centuries, and will always continue to be sinful behavior. Being black hasn’t/isn’t/won’t be. Just because it’s (unfortunately) gaining social acceptance does not make those opposing that acceptance “haters,” as you seem to imply. No one is calling for people who engage in homosexual behavior to be murdered, their property taken from them, denied jobs, food, health care, or rounded up into camps. That’s hate. Can’t we all agree that if Hitler/Mao/Stalin didn’t do it, then it’s not “hate?”
