Houston Texans’ Football Team Owner Donates $10K To Fight Against LGBT Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO)

It has come to light that Bob McNair owner of the (crappy) NFL team the Houston Texans’ has donated  $10,000 to the viciously anti-gay coalition that has placed a repeal of Houston’s LGBT rights ordinance on the November ballot.

After incencensed fans contacted the team they sent the following  cop-out reply:

“Our team Founder, Chairman and CEO, Bob McNair made a personal contribution relative to the HERO issue. Mr. McNair’s rationale for his personal opposition to the HERO issue is based on the way the current ordinance is written, it has begun to separate rather than unite our community. He believes this problem can be solved by defeating the current bill in November, thoughtfully rewriting it and then resubmitting it to voters for approval.

“The Houston Texans as an organization are neutral to the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) and believe that the issue should be decided by Houston voters. We encourage Houston residents to study the issue and vote their conscience on November 3rd. We appreciate your email and would like to thank you for your continued support.

Thank you & Go Texans, Houston Texans.”

So the Houston Texans’ are “neutral” on LGBT rights. are they also “neutral” on racism, the holocaust, and other social justice matters? 

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, quite simply you have chosen the side of the oppressor.
