French Soccer Team Kicks Off Gay Player Instead of the Players Whom Don’t Like That He’s Gay

French amateur soccer team FC Chooz is refusing to let Yoann Lemaire rejoin the team he’s played with for 14 years, and which he resigned from in protest last year when his teammates made homophobic comments in front of television cameras. Chooz, who is gay, must be punished “to help the football world to realize that homophobia is as bad as racism and anti-Semitism,” according to a letter signed by club president Frédéric Pretty. [via]
