Fujita unafraid to support gay rights.


When the request arrived in an e-mail last fall, Scott Fujita replied immediately and without reservation.


A friend had asked him his opinion. He answered. That was how Fujita looked at it.

BRAVO
And I hope the Saints wipe the field with the Indianapolis sneakers as we affectionately know them in Baltimore.

Isn't it interesting that more and more people are showing their humanity. I think it just shows that given time, Americans will do the right and fair thing.

Sometimes I get a little depressed, reading all the posts on these threads, and seeing the hostility and hatred that some have for us. After a while it becomes a little over-whelming. Then, along comes a story like this. It reminds us all that the U.S. is, indeed, much larger, freedom-loving, and uplifting than the trolls on here demonstrate. Thank our lucky stars that America is made up of more pepole like this gentleman, and the bigots we usually come in contact with.

What a great article. Of course it takes a totally straight man to support gay rights. I have a feeling, since most people are bisexual to some extent, those other players were unwilling to have their names attached to this project since they were afraid a part of them might be exposed.

btw, what contrast this is to Tim Tebow, a closeted gay man, aligning himself with Focus on the Family?
