“Right to Life” Night at the Ballpark Strikes Out
As Cardinals fans, my husband and I spent part of this past weekend watching the Royals – Cardinals game on TV. However, we didn’t realize that a culture war was taking place behind the scenes.
Via Creative Minority Report:
The Royals were supposed to host “Right to Life” Night at the ballpark when Missouri Right to Life bought up 300 tickets to a game last week as a fundraiser. The Royals put up a link on their website to encourage people to buy tickets to “Right to life” night. And the link which read “come cheer on the Royals as they play the St. Louis Cardinals and support the Missouri Right to Life” was getting clicks and selling tickets but then…someone was offended! Someone from the office of some stupid state senator (Missouri State Senator Jolie Justus) called to complain.
And the Royals buckled and removed the link from their website. Read the rest.
