Who is 'counseling' pro sports on homosexuality?

According to a recent report by The Associated Press, the secondary coach for the National Football League’s Atlanta Falcons, Marquand Manuel, got into hot water when at the NFL's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis. While at the facility, he reportedly asked Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple: "Do you like men?"

As a result, Manuel and the rest of the Falcons' staff received what AP describes as "social training" from a counselor who was approved by the NFL. Afterwards, Manuel was subjected to additional training. He later issued an apology to Apple and the owner of the Falcons — among others.

Peter LaBarbera, the founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, questions the legitimacy of the supposed counselors.

"First of all, who are the counselors?” LaBarbera asks. “Are they bringing in people from groups like GLAAD, which is a homosexual activist group — which is bigoted against Christians? Are they bringing in anti-Christian homosexual activists to be their so-called advisors?"

The pro-family activist wonders whether parents are now going to have their children subjected to pro-homosexual indoctrination and messaging at all professional venues. 

LaBarbera, Peter"I saw — I think it was a hockey game — where they had the kissing cam, and it was two guys kissing,” LaBarbera recalls. “And our kids are there. Do we want our sons and daughters to think it's okay for two people of the same sex to kiss? It's not okay! It's immoral! It's wrong!"

The Christian leader says it is unfortunate that the NFL, NBA, NHL, and Major League Baseball have apparently bought in to what he calls pro-homosexual, pro-transgender "group think."
