Fox News Runs One-Sided AP Story on Miami Dolphins Punishing Safety Don Jones for Expressing Dismay at Michael Sam’s Homosexual Kiss
Folks, check out this AP story today on an Miami Dolphins’ safety Don Jones, being punished for expressing shock and dismay at rookie NFL draftee Michael Sam’s public homosexual kiss (shown at right but blocked for decency’s sake by AFTAH). Do you notice what’s missing in the AP article, which ran on FoxNews.com? A viewpoint that defends the right of Americans to express revulsion toward immoral homosexual behavior, that’s what.
Don Jones did NOTHING wrong for calling this sinful act “horrible.”
Are we really so far gone in America that a macho professional football player cannot express dismay at the public display of homosexuality? Apparently under the rules of Political Correctness we are no longer allowed to judge homosexual behavior, but everyone is free to judge anyone who speaks out against it!
I repeat: Don Jones had no reason to apologize. Defending historic Judeo-Christian morality and being horrified by sinful, perverse acts like same-sex kissing in public is not “hate” or “bigotry.” It’s called being normal.
Please pray for this lost soul, Michael Sam, who could lead many young men astray by popularizing a grievous sin. It is tragic that the establishment power structure–media, Hollywood, academia, the corporate world–now reward those who embrace homosexuality, and punish those who oppose it. The very opposite of anti-sodomy laws, huh? Yes, America is now, morally speaking, an upside-down culture–descending willy-nilly into godlessness and sexual/gender chaos. But no civilization that glories in sexual immorality will survive in the long run [see AFTAH piece HERE].
Christians and those who haven’t yet drunk the “gay” kool-aid need to boldly proclaim the politically incorrect truths surrounding this issue: the fact that many men and women have left homosexuality behind (ex-“gays”); the very real threat that “gay rights” activism poses to our First Amendment and religious freedoms; and the stunningly disproportionate link between homosexual practice and disease–e.g., a new CDC report documenting that a whopping 84 percent of primary and secondary male syphilis cases now are tied to homosexual sex.
Sounds to me like a behavior that ought to be discouraged, not celebrated. God bless. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Dolphins fine safety Don Jones for negative tweets about Michael Sam
Published May 12, 2014
Associated Press [ran on FoxNews.com 5-12-14]
MIAMI – Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones was fined an undisclosed amount Sunday and will undergo educational training after sending a negative tweet about Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be selected in the NFL draft.
Shortly after the St. Louis Rams took Sam in the seventh round Saturday, Jones tweeted “OMG” and “Horrible.” The tweets were taken down a short time later.
Jones apologized for his comments Sunday and described them as inappropriate. The Dolphins said Jones has been excused from all team activities until he completes training related to his comments.
“We were disappointed to read Don’s tweets,” coach Joe Philbin said in a statement. “They were inappropriate and unacceptable, and we regret the negative impact these comments had on such an important weekend for the NFL. We met with Don today about respect, discrimination and judgment. These comments are not consistent with the values and standards of our program.”
The Dolphins reacted swiftly to Jones’ comments in the wake of the team’s bullying scandal last year, which embarrassed the NFL and prompted a nationwide debate about workplace harassment.
Jones said he regretted that his tweets took away from Sam’s “draft moment.”
“I remember last year when I was drafted in the seventh round, and all of the emotions and happiness I felt when I received the call that gave me an opportunity to play for an NFL team, and I wish him all the best in his NFL career,” Jones said in a statement. “I am committed to represent the values of the Miami Dolphins organization, and appreciate the opportunity I have been given to do so going forward.”
Jones’ agent, Chris Martin, could not be reached Sunday for comment.
