    I agree with gay marriage and even I think the LGBT mafia is relentless with destroying people who differ with them. Even Bill Maher, the biggest liberal and LGBT supporter called them a mafia and said there's something unsettling about what happened to the Firefox CEO. The man treated gay people with utter decency and kindness and gave gay couples the same benefits of hetero couples and never expressed a single feeling of hatred to anyone but he was fired solely because he supported legislation for keeping marriage between one man and one woman. The mafia called him a hater and a bigot.
    you use the word mafia a lot....

    though I dont think a lot of these issues involve organized crime.

    Every police encounter that goes awry is "police brutality"

    Controversy sells.
    If you don't believe in gay marriage, you are bigoted.. I mean, you're saying that you don't think that all people should have the same rights and protections under the law. I don't know how that isn't bigoted.

    The others are more nuanced positions where taking a black and white position is not a good idea.

    Tony Dungy is completely innocent.
    What a shame, the amount of backlash he has received.

    Please support.

    Well that's how it works. They throw name calling out there like "You're a Racist" or "You're a homaphobe" to shut down the debate.
    When they kill the discussion, they don't have to argue their position. they don't have to explain what the name calling means.
    And when we shut down debate, we never move forward. We continue the divisions. There can never be consensus.

    It's what they do. they NEED boogie men to blame.

    The fact that he's equating a group that is fighting for equal rights to the mafia shows his disconnect with reality on this issue.

    Then he should have chosen his words more carefully. Saying "because things will happen," sounds much more ominous (and considering his fundamentalist religious views, like he would not do much to prevent it), than "the media coverage will be a distraction."

    Most likely, he was just talking about the distraction caused by the media, but that's certainly not how it came out.
