Name one instance in your whole life where a religious person was treated with this sort of institutionalized intolerance and I'll give you rep. Oh wait, never mind... Muslims are getting pretty rude welcome these days by the same kinds of bigots who don't want gays anywhere near them.
I haven't seen a "no gays allowed" sign in a ****ing team locker room either. Have you?

And maybe muslims should quit blowing shit up and killing people in the name of Allah? Stereotypes exist for a reason.

Now, if he had only said that he thought the idea of two dudes together was kinda gross, I wouldn't call that bigotry. That would be a preference, but saying that he wouldn't want them on the team at all is where he crosses the line. I wouldn't want to have sex with a 280 lb woman, but I wouldn't want someone fired from their job for being 280lbs or for having a 280lb wife. That's the difference between preference and bigotry. Learn it. Further, you can say that anybody's religion or politics or philosophy is dumb. But you if you go further and don't allow Catholics or Liberals into your place of business, you're a bigot. Plain and simple.
Saying he wouldn't want them on the team doesn't cross the line. Saying the CAN'T be on the team does. Reading comprehension is a wonderful thing, and so are the context of peoples words. Someone saying they don't WANT black people eating in their establishment is the same as someone saying black people CAN'T eat in their establishment.

Thanks for playing.
