Short Snappers for Friday, March 28, 2008

In the past I usually think of questions during the week and jot them down. For the past few weeks I've had poller's block and made up the questions at the last minute. I hope today's selection keep you amused.

27(24.8%)

Do you think that society has become accepting enough for professional sports such as major league baseball, NFL football, NHL hockey, NBA basketball, etc. to have openly gay athletes?

Yes. We've matured as a society now and this would be no big deal.
16(14.7%)
Perhaps, but there would still be some resistance.
41(37.6%)
I'm not sure.
9(8.3%)
I don't think so. There are still too many bigots and homophobes out there.

I think it is a bad idea. Homosexuality is wrong and gay pro athletes would reinforce immoral conduct.

None of these choices describe how I feel about this. I'll comment.

Imagine you are an employer and a potential employee (otherwise qualified and the only applicant) tells you that he/she is a recovering addict and is actively attending a 12 step program. Under what conditions to you hire the person?

I don't. The risk of being ripped off, etc. is too high. I'm not taking any chances.

There's no minimum time, I just use my instincts and if I get a good feeling, I hire the person.

I use some other consideration (tell us what).
