    Rugby team boycotts game over Pride Uniform

    7 of 13 starters for the Manly NRL rugby league team in Australia have refused to play in rainbow jerseys for a crucial match on Thursday.

    Most of them are Polynesian background and say its for religious reasons.

    Yeah I am kind of torn on this one.

    It's my favorite team and a big match so not happy with the players.

    But also agree politics and sport are a bad mix.

    People have no trouble mixing religion with sports though. If you want sports to be sports then i dont want them to thank the mythical creature in the sky everytime something good happens to them either.
    I always think the "i dont wear this for religious reasons" is such a bs excuse. We can segregate one type of person but then on the other hand can i say god bless america shouldnt be played either because it goes against my beliefs that religions are a giant manipulation scheme? No of course not so just put the damn shirt on.

    There was a recent high profile court case here where a rugby player won the right to have his religious beliefs over ride the contract he had signed with the club.

    And I don't think that is right.

    But the argument is they can't write a contract that excludes anyone who's religion objects to any terms.

    I don't know the answer.

    Memorial Day

    Armed Forces Day

    National Anthem
    Military Discounts
    Paid to serve in the military
    GI Bill
    Comprehensive insurance benefits

    I mean I could list a million things that show our country cares about the military. Also not to mention 99 percent of people who serve in the military basically get a blank check of appreciation from everyone.
    Lets not get crazy here and act like a parade and a month which is more by name then anything else is really more then veterans.

    The rainbow crap is a political statement, nothing more and they shouldn't be forced to wear a political statement with which they disagree.

    The gay Monkeypox disease scaring everyone and they are forcing straight men to wear gay pride shit.

    I'm sorry, but enough is enough already. If you want to be gay, go be gay, but let normal men be normal men and have their dignity.

    What a weirdo.

    The ONLY people that I see showing their "Spouse" love in public are gay men and Lesbians, and they are doing it for attention.

    I was at Sheetz last week, and while I was standing in line to checkout, there were 2 flamboyantly gay men standing in line in front of me rubbing each other's lower back and asses. In my 48 years on this planet, I have never seen a straight couple do this.

    Go fish.

    you're missing my point. I suspect on purpose. Ok, I will give it to you that you have 4 days out of the year in which its officially recognizing the military. Every June, for an entire month now, their are rainbow everythings everywhere. Nearly every product you buy to every advertisement.

    Have the parade but does there have to be naked men walking around while kids are lining the parade route? What does walking around with your junk exposed have to do with being gay or having pride in anything?

    I am more of the Morgan Freeman way of thinking when it comes to Black history month....It works for Pride month as well. Just stop talking about it.

    And why in the Hell are we promoting and pushing for something that goes agaisnt the prolonging of the human race?

    This is how fukking goofy Lefty Liberals are are, They'll push climate change down your throat because "We have to save the world so humankind can live on" while they also push the gay agenda down your throat which completely goes agaisnt the continuation of the human race to exist.

    You fools need to make up your minds.


    If you want to be gay, go be gay, just do what us straight people do and shut the fukk up and keep your sexual preferences in the bedroom.

    Donning fairie
    shirts for a rugby match...that's surely rich.

    If you don't suck cawk nor allow them up your arse why in the hell would you wear such a foolish garment.

    Sounds fine for Goduke, so let him prance around the field in whatever rings his bell.

    If a man kissing a woman offends him that's a sad confession on his part.

    I'm not sure if Goduke is light in the loafers but I know that his boyfriend is.

    its different to be forced to wear or say something than to see or hear someone else say it. many coaches basically tell their players to pray before and/or after a game. do you feel that players should be forced to pray with them since you feel they should be forced to wear clothing that they dont agree with?

    i think the argument to be made is that part of their job is to wear advertisements. the rainbow stuff is basically advertising so it doesnt matter if they dont agree with it. im sure plenty of companies make or do things that are against ppls religious beliefs that advertise on sports jerseys. of course players have the right to sit out but they should not be entitled to pay and should be subject to whatever penalties they agreed to in their contracts.

    Why canít homosexuals realize that no race, religion, or sexual orientation is ever going to gain 100% full acceptance? What a bunch of pussies. Quit crying. Why do you need everyone to like you and accept you? Itís not human nature. There are too many people on this planet to expect that you are just going to be accepted for taking a penis inside your hole designed for pooping just cuz some Rugbee player wore your gay little rainbow on his jersey. Get lives. Quit forcing your ass pounding ways into mainstream society, you will never be accepted by everyone and have enough acceptance out there currently that you can stop fukking crying.

    Rather that rugby shirt than any of these, (which were all produced by the same team). You've been warned.
