    Ole Miss Football Players in Hot Water

    University Of Mississippi's 'The Laramie Project' Production Interrupted By Students, Athletes Yelling Anti-Gay Slurs
    This sort of thing disgusts me. I teach theatre and have gone to a production of "The Laramie Project." I hope that players are disciplined for this. I would have halted the production and kicked anyone involved out and then continued on with the performance.

    Unfortunate that the football program finally takes a step forward and the culture at Ole Miss takes a giant step backward.

    They should just be happy that they didn't show up with burning torches and lynches - this is Ole Miss after all.

    Re: Ole Miss Football Players in Hot Water

    Why is it that we have to accept everything? If these people truly feel that being gay is wrong, (e.g. religious beliefs) are they not afforded the same protection by the first amendment that any other protester is? I'm not saying I agree with what they did. But if this is something they feel strongly about how is this any different than someone standing up at a political rally? The direction of political correctness in this country has everyone scared to say what they really think. Wah, your feelings were hurt, get over it.

    Re: Ole Miss Football Players in Hot Water

    So is it "gay slurs" or "anti-gay slurs"?

    Because if you go to a play about somebody who was actually, in real life, tortured and killed for being gay and you proceed to shout anti-gay slurs at the actors you are a horrible human being. Full stop. No questions asked.

    Let's just say I don't think much of your religion... And that's my right... But is it ok for me to come to your church and scream at you while you're trying to worship?

    some might call that harassment.

    They weren't protesting. They were just being ****** bags. Plus, if it was a protest, I'm not sure people protesting against someone's rights is the same thing as protesting your average issue.

    I stated that I did not agree with what they did. Hey, we have a "church" that continually protest the funerals of our recently killed soldiers. All I was trying to say was that you have to protect the "bad" free speech otherwise we start down a slippery slope of others dictating to us what our morals should be. Because of the fear that we might offend someone.

    If they want to protest for their right to be backwards homophobic shitbags there are venues for them to do that. In this instance they weren't protesting their their right to be backwards shitbags. They were just being backwards shitbags.
