Former New York Giants wide receiver David Tyree -- best known for making a famous catch against his helmet during Super Bowl XLII -- spoke out against gay marriage Wednesday, claiming it is the first step towards "anarchy."

Anarchy is usually what happens when a civilization collapses.
As a graduate of Syracuse University, we had MORE than our share of pro homosexual ,anti-family lefties pass through my beloved college.
I’m damn proud that David Tyree is not one of them.
Anarchy is one of the relatively few areas in which government excels. :)
I always tell the Homosexuals I know, be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. Gay marriage leads to gay divorce.
Actually he’s wrong: it’s a step along the road to absolute tyranny. “Gay marriage” represents the state arrogating to itself the right to redefine natural non-state institutions, which have existed in the culture from time-out-of-mind.
It is a deeper analog of the statist corruption of the Commerce Clause. The plea being that the state having an interest in registering marriages (which have never been entirely a religious institution as is attested by the Common Law notion that a long enough cohabitation constitutes a marriage; the fact that for about eight centuries, Christian marriage was a Roman civil marriage taking place with the blessing of the local bishop; and the accounts of marriages by the patriarchs in the Scriptures prove) and in supporting the socially-beneficial natural institution of marriage by favorable tax treatment, that the state can therefore completely regulate marriage to the point of having the power to redefine it. (I trust you see the analogy with Congress having the right to regulate commerce among the several states purportedly giving Congress the right to regulate activity entirely within a state, like private gardening, on the plea that it “affects interstate commerce”.)
not if they allow polygamy.
Divorce is all about the Benjamins.
I’ve always thought that “arrogating” was THE perfect word to describe leftist governing philosophy.
arrogate: to claim or appropriate for oneself presumptuously or without justification
I about to post that it would be all about the Benjamins only if two guys named Benjamin .... but decided not to.
Speaking of civil unions - why can’t we find a civil union these days? Sorry. Rhetorical question.
Not only did me make my favorite catch in a Superbowl in the past decade, but he sounds like a smart dude. Going against PC in the world today is a huge risk if you are a prominent athlete, actor, or singer.
Yep, he does have courage of his convictions to speak out.
How many Hollywood idiots are against homosexual marriage? Has anyone ever spoken out? The only Hollywood idiots with an opinion are in favor of homosexual marriage. And the liberal idiot comedians take it one step further and accuse any opposed of being bigots and Neanderthals and all that. A narrative has developed that if you do not back the entire gay agenda, that you are a bigot. There’s no other reason to oppose homosexual marriage in their view except bigotry.
“How can marriage be marriage for thousands of years and now all the sudden because a minority, an influential minority, has a push or agenda ... and totally reshapes something that was not founded in our country,” he added.
Tyree, a devout Christian, has a wife and four children. He retired in 2010 as a one-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro selection, but is best remembered for his helmet catch in the Giants’ 17-14 Super Bowl XLII ....”
Thank God for upstanding men like him.
Good for him!
It’s not easy to stand up and speak out against gay marriage these days. The mobs of the left will try to destroy you.
