Today’s Lady News: Lesbians Told Their Kiss “Violates The 10 Commandments”

  • Remember that commandment that says “Thou shalt not kiss thy girlfriend at a Minnesota Twins game?” Nope, me, neither. But some busybody security guard at Target Field took it upon himself to tell a lesbian couple that they couldn’t kiss at the stadium because “we don’t play grab-ass here” and it was breaking the 10 commandments. A spokesman for the Minnesota Twins said the guard received both a verbal and a written reprimand, but still kept his job. []
