Courage, the Liberal Media and Jason Collins


AA-Courage-tank1It amazes me, how the liberal media reports on things these days that seem to further the liberal agendas. The latest, NBA Basketball player Jason Collins who came out of the closet to proclaim that he is gay. First of all, do I care?  Do I need to know?  Do I need to know about every celebrity that is or has become gay? (There are too many to count by now.)

The liberal media calls him courageous for coming out. Really? What’s so courageous about it? The media, fellow athletes are mostly supporting him,  praising him,  which is fine by me, but to call coming out of the closet courageous goes too far for me.

I wonder if his girlfriend/fiancée Carolyn Moos for the past eight years, who had hopes of marriage, children and a future with him thinks that he is a courageous man. Oh sure, on the networks she commented him for being so honest and seems to be supported of him. I’ll bet you that inside, her heart is broken in two.

Jason Collins, another great role model for our children, who look up to people like him and other sports celebrities.

Even President Obama and the first Lady spoke about the courage and full heartily embraced the news about Collins coming out on the news and their social network sites. I thought the job of the President is to protect and govern this country rather than furthering the agenda of certain like minded people. Btw, still no real answers on Benghazi.

The liberal media just drools over this story, giving a voice to those who come on their shows to further their lifestyle and promote it as something good and to be proud of. At the same time, people with a different view or opinion on homosexuality are being mocked and ridiculed as bigots by the liberal media.

The liberals may all Jason Collins  a man of courage. For me courageous people are those who put the lives in harm’s way, like NFL player Pat Tilman who went to Afghanistan and lost his life doing so. The men and women of the Police and Fire departments come to mind,  who are putting their lives on the line when it come to facing danger. I remember the first responders on 9/11 who despite the danger went up the stairs of the Twin towers. That is true courage and those are the once that should be role models to all of us.

Recently we had many courageous people at the Boston Marathon. That to me is courage, people who despite the danger of loosing their own life came to the aid of those who were wounded and in imminent danger.

There were many courageous people throughout history, too many to list, so I name a few. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Dr Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Winston Churchill, Rosa Parks and many more. True people of courage.

Courage: That quality of mind which enables one to encounter danger and difficulties with firmness, or without fear, or fainting of heart; valor; boldness; resolution.

    I am appalled by the media’s response to Jason Collins coming out as a gay. I would whole heartedly agree that heroism or courageousness should be left to those who put their lives on the line to defend life and liberty. Your assessment is very accurate and it grieves me that people can call those who go against God’s Word courageous. There’s something definitely wrong; it’s called sin….
