    The irony in this is the last sentence in the first paragraph. There's more in the article...

    What is the problem? This hardly seems newsworthy.

    Absurd.

    The Cards are not a government entity favoring anyone. And they aren't a private entity who's excluding anyone.

    It makes no more sense than to bow down to some group who was mad if they had a Gay Day.

    It's about time America stood up to those people.

    Bless the Cards.

    Just show they don't discriminate, but don't cow-tow to BS.

    Funny you write that. From the article:

    Oddly enough, nobody seems to be mad about it.
    I guess the groups in question are showing their true nature, and more specifically their tolerance toward others, by their actions.
    The intolerant seeking tolerance. Nothing new, I suppose.

    Not so fast. The announcement of the LGBT night on the Cardinals twitter feed has met with plenty of protests and outright hate.

    Just wait until they find out that they don't sell cake at Bush Stadium.

    I should have qualified the term "nobody". By "nobody", I meant mainstream organizations (akin to St. Louis Pride) are not protesting and otherwise being hateful and intolerant.
    Of all the organizations that are honored on these themed nights, only the LGBT community has officially taken an intolerant position.

    To be fair, the Cardinals only made the announcement four days ago. It takes time for outrage to spread from the pulpit to the scriptorium to vellum for distribution.

    LOL.
    Seems like you're stating that the LGBTQ community is more united in its hatred and intolerance and much more efficient in its dissemination thereof. They're virtually pros at it, given the alacrity with which they had an official statement ready. It's been four days and nothing from Christian mainstream groups yet.

    I will say that this is an uncharacteristic post from you. For whatever that's worth.

    Mostly I was joking but it seems worthwhile to point out that the pride group didn't voice any hatred or intolerance, just disappointment in the choice of Lance Berkman as a speaker for the event.

    Honestly, I'd rather debate whether or not McGwire belongs in the Hall if we have to talk about the Cardinals.
