Adrian Peterson 'not with' gay marriage
UPI ^ | May 27, 2013 | Kate Stanton

Adrian Peterson told Bruce Murray and Amani Toomer on Sirius/XM NFL Radio Thursday that he has relatives who are gay but doesn't support gay marriage, NESN reported Monday.

When asked about speculation that the Minnesota Vikings had released punter Chris Kluwe for being too open about his pro-gay marriage stance, the 28-year-old running back admitted he's against it.

I live the "admitted" reference. Nice journalism.

When did “Sports Talk Radio” become “Gay Sex Talk Radio?”

Gays will destroy sports just as they destroyed the Boy Scouts and the military.

All Day is one of the few Sooners who seem to be okay. It’s probably because he was a Longhorn at heart, and would have played for the Horns except that Stoops said he could get his dad out of prison early. Stoops did just that, so I don’t blame AP...

Torii Hunter is another sports star who has come out against turd burglars in the locker room.

I have deemed ESPN the Big Gay Sports Channel with my friends. There has hardly been a single day this year where they don’t lead with some story about a gay athlete. First is was months of speculation, then coverage of stories like this where someone dares stand against gay marriage. Then the outings of the NBA guy, then the WNBA outing (surprise, surprise), then the allegations of the Baylor coach keeping it under wraps. Now, the soccer player.

Seriously. This is ridiculous propaganda.

It is now a major news story when any individual—anybody at all—questions the agenda. How quickly we lost the country!

I can already hear it; AP takes to the field for the first game and the commentators say “And here comes Adrian Peterson, who is against gay marriage and a homophobe. Boy does he have issues...Oh yeah, by the way, he’s kinda good at this game. Let’s hope e can get his act together... “

I wonder if someone “admits” being pro-abortion, oops, I mean pro-choice.

This is part of their strategic plan, knock over every hetero male dominated institution; Scouts, military, churches, Nashville etc.... They have infiltrated sports through leftist reporters for awhile....remember what happened to Reggie White

Wait till a white guy says it and he’ll be lucky if he isn’t tossed off the team.

Remember what some in the liberal media did to Tim Thomas, the Bruins’ goalie, after he refused to visit Barry O. in the White House.

The Vikings dump Kluwe, but no problem with the Jets pick up Qday Aboushi, a pro jihad, anti-Semetic POS

Torii Hunter is definitely one of the good guys.

Just the other day he went out on the field in the rain to play catch with a kid with leukemia. He’s also donating a lot of money to OK tornado victims.

Justin Verlander is another good one. He keeps his suite at Comerica park full of wounded vets for pretty much every home game.

The NFL was going to have a new All Gay franchise but nobody could come up with a good name.

When you can’t win at the ballot box simply shame the opposition into submission.

The tragic irony is that AP has the same position Obama and Hillary had in the 2008 election. 5 years later and that same position creates headlines and is ostracized.

ESPN is a very liberal organization, but I think they are making a big mistake getting involved in this issue. Americans don’t watch or listen to sports coverage for politics.

Why are so many men going after men. Is there something in the water :) too much pot. This is truly sickening. Like a quote; once the family goes, there will go the nation. This is sick. I don't want to be anywhere near this behavior.

I had 2 beautiful daughters at a public university. They couldn’t get a decent date in 4 years. It seems all the guys huddle together and type into their iphiones

I can believe that. My younger sister told me that the more attractive the guys are many times too often turn away the girl’s attention. She’s a very beautiful girl, smart and independent. I'm just sick of it..because it's being forced on society.

I know. I was thinking last year that sports (esp. football) had managed to avoid the whole gay-assault thing, probably because football is such a manly game.

Welcome to the year of “gay sex must be discussed in sports, early and often. Those that oppose will be shamed”.

Not to mention Cuddyer, Gomez, Liriano, and a few other former Twins who are having solid seasons.
