Superbowl team, Indianapolis Colts, appears to endorse homophobic hate group

Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy will be the guest of honor next month at a major fundraiser for one of the lead homophobic organizations in Indiana, the Indiana Family Institute. The IFI is affiliated with super homophobe James Dobson and his extreme right, anti-gay Focus on the Family.

But what's even worse, the Colts appear to have endorsed the fundraiser, apparently permitting their logo to appear on the event's official flyer, and permitting the coach to appear in the flyer in uniform and on the job.

Yes, in America you have the right to be a homophobic bigot and lend your name to help intolerant anti-civil-rights groups raise money. But that doesn't make it right. I seriously hope Tony Dungy and the homophobic Colts won't be popping up in any commercials for any companies any time soon, or there will be hell to pay.

pretty funny. Anyone that doesnt believe that homosexuals should be coddled and awarded for being gay is a heartless bigot. Tony Dungy has received nothing but praise and rightly so, because he is a classy guy, a christian guy, but what are they gonna do now? Can the liberals still celebrate him b/c he is the first black coach when they know now that he doesn't agree with homosexuality by proxy?

Even though he didnt say so, he is still a bigot. It is just ridiculous that you are characterized as a homophobe just because you are so crazy to hold people responsible for their actions.

Funny, I never heard Dungy make any disparaging remarks about homosexuals.

This is projection disguised as a press release.

I never heard it, although my guess is that he believes in traditional marriage and also in the Bible.

Anything that wants to maintain family is automatically anti gay.

If this gains any traction, I wonder what Tony will say and what the media will say re: Tony.

I've always like Tony Dungy. Wish he'd been the Steelers coach instead of Cowher.

Maybe Peyton Manning and Jeff Saturday will come by and show the crowd how they hike the ball... Some woman in the crowd would probably faint....

Somebody needs to tell these people that a "homophobe" is someone who is fearful of men. Someone who believes the homosexual lifestyle is wrong is not "fearful" but holds to a moral position. Someone (me?) needs to start a campaign to educate people in the proper use of words!

Just a joke. I am not a liberal... I am not familiar with this group in Indiana. Why do people call it homophobic?

I have never understood the term "homophobic". do these people really think that he or anyone else has "fear" of homosexuals? because they disagree with the homosexuals deviant behavior?

I'm not a homophobe, I am homonauseated - sick of the gay agenda.

agreed, homophobia is

homo - any of a genus (Homo) of hominids that includes modern humans (H. sapiens) and several extinct related species (as H. erectus and H. habilis) and

phobia - an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation

so you are scared of hominids, I know I am not.

Its more like homosexual-aversion, or perhaps "reality of homosexuality syndrome".

I'm not familiar with the specific group in Indiana but I have heard Jim Dobson on the subject of homosexuality a few times. He recognizes that homosexual behavior is destructive and that societal recognition and approval of the behavior mostly through the means of redefinition of the human family is also destructive to society. That's really his main focus, the human family. There is only one norm in human families and that is monogamous marriage. He comes at it though an unusual combination of fundamentalist Christianity and scientific research (he has a Ph.D in Child Development & was Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at USC)

That has got to be the most self-contradictory statement I have ever read.

Very interesting. Now Dungy -- the first African American coach to win a Super Bowl, as the liberal drive-bys reminded us incessantly -- is some kind of bigot, and so are the Colts.

Puh-leeze!

"The IFI is affiliated with super homophobe James Dobson and his extreme right, anti-gay Focus on the Family.

So what questions should one ask himself in order to understand this assertion?

1. What is a "Homophobe"?

A- Anyone who is "afraid" of homosexuals.

2. How does one determine that James Dobson is a "homophobe.?

A- he does not practice, nor promote the homosexual lifestyle, as a viable alternative to normal sexual relations for human beings. He asserts that the gay lifestyle is personally self destructive, and destructive to society at large.

3.What exactly is the extreme right/ anti- gay Focus on the Family?

A- It is a Christian advocacy group that is not in lock step with the current "Godless" humanistic world view towards individuals and families, and is organized to help promote good and healthy traditional values and morals for families world wide, in order to secure the best life possible for the future generations of children.

Placed into the proper context, it is very easy to see why a pro pervert group would lash out at James Dobson, and Focus on the Family.

But why did they have to have to do it through citing Dungy?

It was the only way to get press so they could trash Dobson and his organization yet again.

Actually, "homophobe" is completely made up and has no good meaning. It would NOT mean "fear of men", but fear of HUMANS. Or, it would be fear of sameness. Of course, the latter is the antithesis of marxism, but they definitely fit the former.

oh yeah, they hate focus on the family with all their beings. They would quake with glee if someone from FOTF divorced and they would have seizures of ecstasy if something like Haggards situation arose.

Or it is an objection on moral grounds to a lifestyle which I find unacceptable. But there is NO fear.

The irony is stunning. Talk about "hate speech".

Sounds like they could use some financial assistance...

The truth is that "Focus on the Family" is the most gay-friendly organization in America.

While others tell gays to do what they want, Focus continually, in all seriousness, reminds homosexuals that their behavior is killing them decades earlier than the general population dies.

Who is your real friend? Someone telling you to continue a behavior that is killing you, or someone trying to get you to change?

Who is the child's real friend? The mother who lets it play in the middle of the street, or the mother who keeps a watchful eye on it?

"homophobic" hate group? who is "hating" now?
Being from Indiana originally I can honestly say that gay men are accepted much better then feminists, liberals, and in most cases, other races. Please already, why is it that people always want to attack when certain people of status they look up to go and spend a little time playing in another sandbox?
