LETTER FROM GLAAD EXPLAINING HOW BUTT HURT THEY ARE:


Advocates of anti-gay violence have no place at CNN or Time Warner

Following H&M's Super Bowl commercial featuring soccer player David Beckham, CNN's Roland Martin tweeted to almost 95,000 followers:
If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham's H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him! #superbowl
Roland Martin is a regular guest on CNN and a commentator on TV One, a news network available in over 36 million homes.
GLAAD wrote:
.@rolandsmartin Advocates of gay bashing have no place at @CNN #SuperBowl #LGBT
Martin replied:
@glaad @CNN well you're clearly out of touch and clueless with what I tweeted. Way to a.ssume, but you're way off base
Earlier today Martin posted to his Facebook fan page:
Who the hell was that New England Patriot they just showed in a head to toe pink suit? Oh, he needs a visit from #teamwhipdatass
Since making the comments Martin has suggested his tweet regarding David Beckham was intended for soccer fans. He did not respond to a question from Metro Weekly about why, if the tweet was about soccer and not based in anti-gay sentiment, he only referenced his concern about "a dude ... hyped" about the ad and not any soccer fan.
A closer look at his record gives a window into Martin's anti-gay views.
Last year, Tracy Morgan said that if son was gay he would 'stab him' during a stand-up show. He later apologized and worked with GLAAD to send a positive messages to parents and LGBT youth.
Morgan understood how his words could influence his fans and put youth in danger, while Martin defended Tracy Morgan's original remarks on his site:
"Say I'm wrong. Fine. Say I'm insensitive to gays and lesbians. Fine."
He continued: "Sorry, if I'm being honest here and not focusing on political correctness. I just believe that many of you would be shocked and amazed that you laughed hysterically at some of the most s3xist, homophobic, racist stuff imaginable by comedians of all shapes, sizes, ethnic backgrounds, genders and s3xual orientations."
At a time when the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs found that violence against LGBT people was up 23% we need people in the public eye to speak out against the dangers of anti-LGBT violence, not openly encourage it.
Martin also has used his platform to misrepresent religious views of lgbt people. Far from the church being uniformly anti-gay, as Martin has claimed, LGBT people are welcomed into the full life of the church, just as they are, in congregations and entire denominations across the United States. Lutheran, Presbyterian, and Episcopal denominations welcome LGBT folks, as well as many congregations from a variety of denominations.
On Martin's website he ignores the medical evidence about the ineffective nature and harms a.ssociated with so-called ex-gay programs and instead praises his wife who he says "has counseled many men and women to walk away from the gay lifestyle."
As many of his peers in the news media have reported: The American Psychiatric a.ssociation states that "The potential risks of 'reparative therapy' are great, including depression, anxiety and self destructive behavior, since therapist alignment with societal prejudices against homos3xuality may reinforce self-hatred already experienced by the patient" (from its position statement on Psychiatric Treatment and s3xual Orientation).
Martin's tweets today advocating violence against gay people weren't an accident. They are a part of a larger pattern for Martin.
Anti-gay violence in America is a serious problem facing millions of Americans. It's no joke. CNN should fire Roland Martin.

They pushin that gay marriage sh*t in Cali.

this gay marriage sh*t is such a touchy subject. Anyone you talk to that's for it gets butthurt easily and logical conversation is linked with irrational feelings. Check this from a scientific and spiritual standpoint:

Science/Sociology: Human depopulation/eugenics/devolution of the masculine.

Religion: Homos3xual relations is a sin. God shows no mercy to homo's. Also, a marriage is under "Holy Matrimony". Are we making up our own religions now? A mockery of the main religions of the world..

fu*k it. just made a thread.

They're f*gs... so I don't really care.

Anways.. when he says "if there's a dude at your party" then I don't think he's referring to only gay people.... but guys in general.

But f*gs always gotta pipe up against the stupidest sh*t.

Well u can scrap the spiritual cuz its made-up sh*t that u have decided to accept as truth. Ur beliefs have nothing to do with another person's happiness.

I'm all for science, but until u show me how the population is declining, I gotta a.ssume ur just another who knows nothing but has lots of words to try and justify his/her hate.

They want equal rights, but still want preferential treatment.
Funny that a group that feels oppressed and without rights wants people fired for some borderline jokes.

Why these n*ggas call themselves GLAAD but always bi*ching? If I were Roland, I'd tell these GLAAD f*gs to suck my d!ck. But then again, some of those f*gs might take it literally.
