Saying that he supports Chick-Fil-A in voicing its anti gay agenda. I am glad he is gone from the NHL and hope to never seem him play again.
I wasn't ok with him skipping the white house. That's one of those honorable moments a team experiences together when they win the championship. As an individual you get to take the cup home and all that, but as a team you get commemorated, paraded, and honored. I saw it as him letting his petty beliefs interfere with his teammate responsibilities.

The Tea Party thing is screwed up. I don't care who knows it, I think those people are as crazy as any other religious or political radicalists. Sure the Tea Party isn't violent as some radicalists, but it's agenda is just as ignorant and stubborn IMO. I know saying these things probably makes me look intolerant, but healthy nationalism, religious lobbying, and reasonable capitalism is fine by me, the Tea Party however, are too extreme for me to sit comfortably with them.
