According to Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center, U.S. District Court Judge John Coughenour has ruled that North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance can discriminate by limiting the number of straight players who can play on a softball team, citing the First Amendment. And frankly, I’m OK with that.
NAGAAA is a private organization, not a government organization. As such, if they don’t want to let heterosexuals play in their reindeer games, fine. However, when it comes to the Boy Scouts, another private organization, not allowing gays, many in the gay community have thrown veritable hissy fits. (Oops, was that playing into a stereotype? I probably shouldn’t do that, should I? Someone’s gonna wanna send me to sensitivity training!)
Sorry, Charlie…but gays can’t have it both ways. If you want to be able to discriminate, you have to allow others to discriminate, as well. Sauce for the goose and all.
