Gay agenda item #162: Invade America’s pastime.
 
Let’s be honest. For the most part the ranks of professional athletes aren’t exactly a recruiting ground for MENSA. Baseball, which is less reluctant to draft athletes from high school than the other major sports (football and basketball…no, I don’t count hockey), is loaded with kids from small towns who take their small town values and are shipped off to often smaller towns (Visalia, Billings, Idaho Falls anyone?) where they live eat and sleep baseball with the hope of making it to ‘the show’. Except for the top picks who get the big signing bonuses, it’s a hard life not exactly filled with opportunities to develop intellectually as a person or see much of the world other than what can be seen from a bus window. For a minor leaguer it’s a state of continued adolescence playing a childs game, albeit better than most of us could ever dream of playing it.
 
So when I read something like this:
 
Most of the questions in a survey of Major League Baseball’s 30 teams produced fairly clear-cut answers from the players on subjects ranging from best player and favorite ballpark to competitive balance and performance-enhancing drugs.
 
[…]
 
In the above-mentioned survey, nearly 63 percent (475) of the major league population (750 players) responded to 10 “state of the game” questions posed by reporters from the Chicago Tribune and seven other Tribune Co. newspapers.
 
[…]
 
Having a gay teammate: Better than 74 percent said it would not be a problem. 
 
…coming just two years after the Mike Piazza rumors, I find it intriguing how far acceptance of gays has slipped into the mainstream, contrary to the opinions of the Family Research Council.
 
Next stop: NASCAR.
