A Most Ashamed & Embarrassed Fan
I am ashamed beyond belief. It has been brought to my attention that the Cincinnati Reds are having a FAITH DAY this weekend that is being sponsored by the CREATION MUSEUM. I do not know what to say and I have E-mailed the following message to the management. I know it will fall on deaf years but at least I got the opportunity to express my outrage.
FAITH DAY SPONSORED BY THE CREATION MUSEUM???
Are you kidding?
I have been a DIE HARD Reds fans since I was a child growing up in Dayton. The Big Red Machine surrounded my upbringing. I am 44 years old and now live in Arizona and I make sure that I watch as many Reds games that I can, even when they are doing as POORLY as they are this year!
HOW DARE YOU mix religion in with our National Pastime? Religion does not belong in a ballpark and the entire organization looks like IDIOTS to the rest of the SANE portions of the country. We are a melting pot and to single out a religion and promote it in a secular venue at a secular sporting event is wrong in every instance.
This gives me great pause as to how this team is being run into the ground! I am ashamed to have very publicly stated my support for this most storied franchise and you are belittling the grand history of this team.
A MOST ASHAMED FAN
At least Adam Dunn is now a D-Back and Griffey is a White Sox.
