USOC is willfully clueless

Laws based on the preposterous notion that gay people recruit children are not “disparate views.”

That is sheer bigotry and the US Olympic Committee is an enabler. Human rights should take precedence over athletic competition. The notion that these games sprinkle goodwill pixie dust around is patently absurd.

Their August 9 statement:
We fully support the comments today from President Obama rejecting calls to boycott the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Russia. The Games bring people together. They unite the world and break down barriers. The Games demonstrate how it is possible to compete fiercely but respectfully. They demonstrate how people with disparate views can come together and celebrate what they have in common, most notably the will to be the best you can be. As the President suggested, the diverse group of athletes representing our nation next winter makes us a stronger and a better Team USA.
