Now this I agree with.
Sodom and Gomorrah say hi!
But there is an obligation to know what "Tolerant" actually means.
Maybe throwing the flag down to mug for a photo op?
No one who holds this opinion has any ground to stand on. Calling those of faith "less knowledgeable" is in and of itself "intolerant".
I never claim victimhood, just pointing to the irony.
People of faith have the same knowledge that you do. They sat in the same classes, under the same instruction as you.
In fact you could argue that people of faith expand their knowledge in additional ways, beyond just intellectual knowledge.
Generally we all have similar levels of knowledge, with differing levels and methods of application.
Seems like one view is tolerated to me.
I think some of that is just the frustration with the disrespect for the flag in the much publicized drop and stomp during the celebration and the way they acted in the blow uoy in round one. They really did have some middle finger moments to their opponents and to traditional patriotism.
I have a feeling I know which one... but which one is that?
I'm not sure if all of the women on the US National team are liberal... They probably all support "equal pay" as they define it at least, for obvious reasons...
Agree. It's definitely just a loaded political term at this point.
Please tell me you dont really think she stomped on the flag? Please.
No just thrown down like a dirty rag!
It wasn't the best look, but they also wrapped themselves in it and paraded it around. I know it isn't supposed to hit the ground, but I don't think disrespect was intended. It would never be a story if people weren't already fired up over the team's politics.
They made it easy for God with his fire and brimstone. All those homosexuals gathered together in two cities. It was like shooting fish in a barrel.
It's the same old selective outrage. You can use the American flag in all kinds of ways that violate the Federal Code's rules for displaying it. But if you disagree with someone's political positions, you claim they're being disrespectful.
Also, it would just be weird to you know, represent your national team and country, when all the while you hate America and all it stands for? That would be some cognitive dissonance.
They might not all be liberal. But I doubt any of them are outspoken about homosexuality being a sin or are against gay marriage.
This is true and I think she is retired from playing international soccer. This looks like a click bait article just trying to sell advertisement.
I do not. I do not feel that was there intent at all....But I do think every generation before them understands that you don't throw a flag on the ground to celebrate with a "me, me me" type of pose...and that is an era of respect that we are losing, or at least it is lost on some of our women's team.
For as bummed as that made me, I was equally stoked to see it quickly grabbed back up by players who understood the significance
Why is “Team USA” putting a political message on the uniforms? It’s a private organization. The USSF can do what it wants...sometimes. See below:
Forced political speech by private organization? That’s okay for the politicians and many on this board. Think of how you would feel about this issue if the KKK sponsored women’s soccer and wanted their label on the uniform.
Not giving equal pay by same private organization? Not okay. https://www.washingtonpost.com/spor...-uswnt-gets-equal-pay/?utm_term=.6ea4bc8ea637
This is a fair POV, but the flag code is not widely known as a whole...but we were all taught to keep it off the ground. I think that event was more of a sign of the "look at me" selfie generation that I am having to raise my kids in, than it was an intentional act of flag defaming. I just think it was a terrible way to act on the biggest stage.
