Tantrum Politics

No to Free Speech?

Last month, the U.S. Olympic Committee named Peter Vidmar, a former gold medalist in mens' gymnastics, as its "chief of mission" for the 2012 London Olympics. In this honored position, Vidmar would interact with other countries and the International Olympic Committee to ensure that our country's participation would come off without a hitch.

Almost immediately he came under public attack by proponents of same-sex "marriage," who called his selection "disgraceful." (Apparently, homosexual capering is not disgraceful.)

You see, Vidmar, acting upon his religious convictions about marriage, donated money to the proponents of California's 2008 marriage amendment, Prop. 8. Prop 8 was enacted by Californians to restore the traditional definition of marriage in that state.

The "progressive" Left says the US Constitution is a 'living document.' They mean they will scream and pout until you let them have their way. They've gotten so used to this infantile approach, they cannot understand that some people don't agree with them.

Peter Vidmar is entitled to freely speak his opinion, AND to freely exercise of his religious views. The Left should shut up on this one.
