D.C. Lobbyist Reportedly Prepares Legislation Banning Gay Players from the NFL

News

Senior Bowl

Horrified at the idea of Michael Sam being drafted, one top Washington lobbyist claims to be working on legislation that would keep gays out of his favorite dog piles of men in tight pants:

Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman on Monday said he is preparing legislation that would ban gay athletes from joining the National Football League (NFL).

Burkman in a statement said he has garnered political support for the bill, though his statement didn’t mention any specific lawmakers who are behind it.

”We are losing our decency as a nation,” Burkman said in a statement. “Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man. That’s a horrifying prospect for every mom in the country. What in the world has this nation come to?”

Burkman reportedly finds prostitutes consistent with our decency as a nation, though, so Richie Incognito is safe at least.

Jack Burkman will be meeting Lucifer after he dies, along with most evangelicals, just like Jerry Falwell is doing right now. Sad thing is, I don't think Lucifer did anything to deserve this.

Homosexuals do not belong in he NFL. Homosexuality should be criminalized. Homosexuality is a crime against God and against the Holy Bible. After seeing your story I know why God wrote:

Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: :26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: :27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

"What in the world has this nation come to?”


Sanity and equality Mr. Burkman. In the words of Christ ( according to the Gospels of Mary & Thomas The only credible sources from which you can quote Christ)  "Whenever two people love each other, God is present." Mot a man and a woman, not two or three people, not whatever you would rather he said. Christian, that's what this nation has finally come to.

Once again, a Republican is doing his best to keep evil Big Government from interfering with private enterprise by legislating who can and can't work for the NFL, a private organization.  Does this also apply to front office people, trainers and equipment handlers?


I'd rather see a law banning the employment of wingnut idiots.

I find it hard to believe this guy is a top DC lobbyist. He seems like a PR nightmare and wouldn't go far in his industry with such lack of tact.

Unconstitutional on its face.  And what a sad, sad thing to push for.

Jack Burkman is the same guy who was embroiled in the DC Madame scandal.  Soon, the GOP will only exist in history books.

As a College Cross Country and Track athlete, I have showered with men whom I knew were gay... guess what happened?  Yup, NOTHING!  Its a locker room... you aren't there to stare at eachother... you are there to prepare for competition or to dress to go home afterwards.  This is stupid and a waste of lobbyist ability.  Also, I knew your brother, Jim Burkman, who is a great guy, since Middle school...  you ought to know better!  You're too smart to be a moron...  wake up, buddy!

Here we go again. I'm a parent. Personally I think group showers are odd in and of themselves, but having a gay player in the mix doesn't bother me. I'm glad Jack Burkman is doing this. He's helping to push the GOP further and further into irrelevance.

@DonaldSpitz  Where does your religion trump anyone elses's?  The constitution doesn't mention the bible or god.

@DonaldSpitz  But it won't be criminalized, it's not illegal and change is happening with or without you. So you go ahead and make yourself comfortable with your old, dusty, antiquated, fake book and enjoy living in the past. We'll show you the true teachings of Christ and serve you when you go to a gay owned/employed restaurant, grocery store, etc. We are everywhere and are not going anywhere. Hope you have a good day.
