About that new hero . . .

While our culture not only accepts but applauds all sorts of deviant behavior, most people still frown on abandoning spouses or committing adultery. The exception is for gays who leave spouses and children to indulge their preferences, such as Episcopal “Bishop” Gene Robinson.  Their happiness at doing the opposite of what God commands trumps any lifetime commitments they made to their spouses, and of course the feelings and needs of their children are irrelevant.

Given that, why would anyone be surprised that most media accounts about one-point-per-game NBA player Jason Collins managed to “fake” it as a heterosexual for years and waste the youth of his former fiance’?  Via Jason Collins ‘outs’ himself, but fails to tell ex-fiancé he’s gay:

Eight years down the drain…

Basketball’s Jason Collins made headlines recently by telling the world he’s actually homosexual, but the one person he didn’t notify was his long-time ex, as reported by the New York Daily News on April 30, 2013.

The jilted Carolyn Moos claims that her former fiancé of eight years, Boston Celtics center Jason Collins, failed to notify her that he was homosexual, despite the fact that the two had been planning their nuptials for almost a decade.

Collins came out of the closet this past week-end, thusly being the only athlete in a major American sport who has publically identified himself as a homosexual.

Moos stated to the gossip network TMZ:

“It’s very emotional for me as a woman to have invested 8 years in my dream to have a husband, soul mate, and best friend in him.

This is all hard to understand.”

Benghazi? Let’s Talk About Collins Instead…

During today’s press conference, Barack Obama gushed on regarding his admiration for the Boston-based baller, saying he “couldn’t be prouder of him.”

Unlike the four Americans killed in the al-Qaeda attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Obama took time out of his busy schedule to place a telephone call Collins.

Even if he was “born that way” (another lie) then stringing his fiance’ on was reprehensible.

This guy waited to come out until it not only cost him nothing but will profit him greatly.  I’m not seeing the bravery that results in calls from the President, etc.

Oh, and Collins claims to be a Christian.  Meditate on that.  And the media ignores his “Christian” view that his behavior is acceptable yet blasts a man with the nerve to politely point out authentic biblical views.

Woe to those who call good evil and evil good.

Romans 1:26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

  1. Neil, the story of this woman investing eight years with this man has been on my mind all week. I am not saying she is innocent. She is a fool. And she is responsible for choosing him. But my point would be this: why is everyone CELEBRATING this man? All he did is steal 8 years of her life and then abandoned her for the gay lifestyle, with all that that entails. Why is this good? I am not minimizing her responsibility. She is 100% responsible because she chose him over better marriage-minded men. But why celebrate this guy? What is there to celebrate? I would rather celebrate Neil Simpson and his marriage and family and Christian children if we are going to have to celebrate anything.


      1. I do celebrate you, and I wish everyone did have Neil Simpson as the model for husband and father. That’s what we should be emulating, not this NBA player.


  2. despite the fact that the two had been planning their nuptials for almost a decade.

    There’s another set of problems in there, i.e. planning your wedding for a decade. That’s only acceptable if you met in high school and wanted to wait until your early-ish twenties to marry.

    But yes, I agree with you, and it enrages me that society gives a free pass to young men who waste women’s time. What’s the theory – there’s always IVF, adoption, surrogate motherhood, or just being childless? As much as there were problems with the ’50s and earlier, at least society considered it its sworn duty to browbeat young men into moving things along before their girlfriends became barren from old age.


    1. Personally, I feel longer engagements are the better idea. There was seven years between the time my wife and I started dating and our eventual marriage. There were no doubts about our choice to marry and now, no regrets (except that she hates the White Sox).


      1. We’re those 7 years during high school or college?

        It’s a jerk move for an independent, self-supporting man to string a twenty something (or older) woman along for that long. Any self-respecting woman should kick him to the curb long ere then.

        I’ll also point out that long engagements and chastity are not mutually compatible. You shouldn’t rush into marriage to have sex, but non-sexually active people tend to not drag their feet.


      2. Long engagements are NOT a great idea. Studies have shown that engagements lasting longer that 18 moths to 2 years end up with the couple engaging in sexual relations. Long engagements are new to society when considered in history.


      3. Glenn: they also end up with a lot of resentment. There was a great New York Times article about a psychologist – no one’s social conservative – who said that she saw all these wives who couldn’t get over their anger at their husbands. The men had strung them along for years, and when they finally wed, the women were just burnt out.

        One woman described it as a “multi-year, never-ending audition to be his wife.” As much as I hate that someone ended up feeling that way, I love that line; it perfectly encapsulates how anti-woman (well, real woman) it is to drag your feet for the better part of a decade.


      4. Bridget,
        You are so right. I have no respect for a man who will live with a woman without benefit of marriage – he makes no commitment while she is waiting for commitment, thinking if she just lets him have what he wants he will eventually marry her. If a man really loves a woman, he will marry her. If he just wants her as a room mate with benefits, he will just live with her.


      5. Re. the multi-year audition: Those tend to turn out just as you’d expect. The woman moves in with general assumptions of eventual marriage. The “audition” drags out and she gets understandably more bitter, which he views as another reason to be cautious about marrying her. Eventually she hates the one she would have been willing to commit to for life. She leaves after wasting key years of her youth.

        But do either of them learn the lesson and tell others how to avoid that fate?


  3. It’s interesting to see how character is being sacrificed on the alter of advocacy of the homosexual agenda. We know nothing of this person’s character – whether he is faithful or promiscuous, whether he is greedy or generous, whether or not he abuses people or substances. All we that he is in a position of public prominence and that he is gay, and that is sufficient to bring plaudits from the most powerful person in the free world. It is a world so bizarre it was unimaginable just a few years ago.


      1. Lifetime average of 3.6 with around an average of 20 minutes per game. About the same for total rebounds per game and his free throw percentage is under 70%. It must have been the intangibles that kept him in the game for twelve years. But everyone says he was a great teammate.


  4. I was told yesterday, by a lesbian, that heterosexuality causes abuse of women. I told her I’ve been married almost 37 years and never abused a woman, so apparently she is wrong about the cause. I had to inform her that the same thing that cause abuse of women causes abuse of men – sin. No response.


      1. Actually they turn to that lifestyle because they are too lazy or narcissistic to find the man that God made for them.


    1. Yes, Wintery, many were abused as children. But, it’s still their choice. And, if it is not their choice because they can’t think straight, then we should be counseling the stuffing out of them to save them from the deviant behavior to which they were exposed.


  5. Let’s really be incorrect. I have always wondered why, if someone is “born that way” there are cases of identical twins where one is gay and one is not. Born that way???


    1. This seems to be the case with Collins, as he has a twin who I believe is not a homosexual, or at least hasn’t claimed to be. That’s my understanding. Don’t hold me to it.


  6. The eight years engagement bugs me along with the fact that he’s a coward for going to tell the world first before telling her truthfully.
