Fox News’s Todd Starnes, who has been called out by his own side for repeatedly mangling the truth in an effort to keep angry wingnuts angry, has lost all his enthusiasm for Sport, and it is, of course, the gays’ fault:

I owe all of you a massive apology. I thought the Olympics was about athletic competition – not advancing a cultural agenda. I was wrong.

I thought the NFL was about football – not advancing a cultural agenda. I was wrong.

I should’ve learned my lesson after the Rose Bowl Parade and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

It’s all about advancing a cultural agenda — no matter the cost.

We are no longer allowed to have fun and enjoy sports or entertainment programs. How sad.

Because Todd can’t have fun or enjoy watching sports (parades are “sports?”) if he has to confront the fact that the athletes playing are humans and, as such, some of them are gay. The poor thing. Someone set up a relief fund and a telethon in the wake of the damage done to Todd’s weak fee wees, stat!

Hemant Mehta reacts:

But Starnes thinks treating people like they’re human beings will ruin his fun and enjoyment.

I guess he wants an NFL where only straight players get to tackle each other and slap each other on the ass and an Olympics where only straight athletes get to participate in the two-man luge.
