Super Bowl hero warns of 'anarchy' if NY approves gay marriage
HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN

June 16, 2011|By Jason Kessler, CNN

Former New York Giants receiver David Tyree's celebrated catch in the closing seconds of Super Bowl XLII was pivotal to his team's victory. Now out of football, he is trying to claim a last-minute win over another foe -- same-sex marriage.

On the same day that the New York State Assembly approved a same-sex marriage bill, Tyree warned of dire consequences if the legislation becomes law.

The bill's passage would "be the beginning of our country sliding toward ... anarchy," he said

Tyree made the comments in a video released Wednesday by the National Organization for Marriage, which is spearheading opposition to the bill. The legislation must now clear the Republican-controlled State Senate where its fate is uncertain.

His disapproval of gay marriage is based on religious as well as secular grounds, Tyree said.

"Marriage is the only relationship that actually mirrors the relationship with God," he said.

He also argued that same-sex parents are ill-equipped to raise a child of the opposite sex.

"You can't teach something that you don't have," Tyree said in the video. "So two men will never be able to teach a woman how to be a woman."

It is not justifiable to alter a long-standing institution "because a minority -- an influential minority -- has ... an agenda," he said.

In an opinion column for Yahoo News, the group's chairman, Maggie Gallagher, said Tyree told her he decided to speak out after his former teammate Michael Strahan declared his support for gay marriage last week.

The video appeared to take a page out of the playbook of the group's adversary, the Human Rights Campaign, which has released a steady stream of video testimonials from celebrity advocates of gay marriage in recent months. Uma Thurman, Whoopi Goldberg, Sean Avery of the New York Rangers and others have appeared in their videos.

Tyree seemed to chide notables who oppose same-sex marriage, but keep their opposition to themselves. "I am disappointed when ... not enough guys ... lift up something as honorable and near to God's heart as marriage," he said.

"We're doing God an injustice by not making his heart known to our country."

Stopped right at this point:

as I say to my religious associates that try to argue against equal rights: "What does your god have to do with me?"

Of course they don't, it might require him actually thinking about how stupid what he's saying is.

You're SORT of right. The politicians SHOULD be more in the spotlight here, but that's not how the game is played. Tyree isn't just making statements to the press or sending tweets or some shit. This isn't an interview that went off the rails.

He's making a promotional video to try to influence people and throw his celebrity behind the cause and that video is being distributed by an organization committed to denying rights to part of the population. So if he's going to be out there trying to SELL this then people should absolutely stand up and say, either to people who might be persuaded by something like a football player's opinions or to people that he's railing against so that they know that we support them: "HEY THAT'S BULLSHIT".

On the other hand, Republican NY state senator Roy McDonald made the following statement yesterday on why he supports gay marriage:


“You get to the point where you evolve in your life where everything isn't black and white, good and bad, and you try to do the right thing,” McDonald, 64, told reporters. “You might not like that. You might be very cynical about that. Well, fuck it, I don't care what you think. I'm trying to do the right thing. “I'm tired of Republican-Democrat politics. They can take the job and shove it. I come from a blue-collar background. I'm trying to do the right thing, and that's where I'm going with this.”

You know who ELECTS those politicians who make those laws? People like this guy. So, I don't see why it's ridiculous to condemn him for these comments, especially when I don't think ANYONE offended by his statements doesn't also fully believe that politicians who feel the same way and are fighting this are just as at fault.

This guy represents what is so flawed about these people's mindsets. So yeah, I don't see a problem with publicly condemning his words. I'd do the same if he was just a nobody on the street or the merry King of England. Wrong is wrong.

"It is not justifiable to alter a long-standing institution "because a minority -- an influential minority -- has ... an agenda," he said."

I love this line. By his rationale his entire career should never have happened nor many of the opportunities granted him. If not for a minority pushing to be accepted he would be in the fields working rather than making a decent living playing sports. Its because of people contesting the acceptance of things just being the way they are that has allowed society to evolve beyond the societal petri dish. Women wouldn't be where they are today if David Tyree's rationale was applied historically. Blacks would still be slaves if we were to apply his rationale to their plight. Not to mention the biblical support of slavery as championed by politicians in the days prior to emancipation.

I wonder if Tyree is aware of what a contradiction his rationale is when applied to the minority HE is a part of. Maybe he is pro-slavery though. I have suspicions that is not the case but his logic seems to dictate it must. Or maybe God only applies to minorities David Tyree doesn't like. Either way....he's a moron.

"Marriage is the only relationship that actually mirrors the relationship with God".

Is it because both relationships sometimes involve getting on your knees?
Or does he think shouting "Oh God" in bed with a woman is actually an invitation for Him to join in (and have a "unholy trinity" of their own)?

I really think people like Tyree believe their nonsense rationalizations, and it comes from what they think they know, as opposed to who they hate. They just need to be educated.

Edit: I mean, I say it like it's easy, but I do think it's possible. Or would like to. Like Tim Hardaway, for example.

I was raised by two very conservative, religious parents one of whom believes that homosexuals are on par, if not worse, than murderers. And I never had anyone around who came and said or felt otherwise.

I didn't agree with my folks' opinions then, I don't agree now. So, to me, "this is how my parents and environment made me" is a very flawed excuse if you aren't in a third-world country, because in this day and age, there are simply NO excuses to be THIS ignorant. If you ARE this uneducated and this misinformed about any subject of this magnitude, guess what? It's your own damned fault.

You were brought up a certain way? You were raised fucking ignorant? Tough. Learn something. Expand your world view. And you know how you find out that that OTHER world view even exists? Someone calls bullshit and SHOWS it to you and maybe being nice about it ain't the way to go. It's a slow SLOW grind and I'd love to be compassionate and the bigger man and shit, but you know what? The olive branch is a shitty weapon. Turning the other cheek gets you smacked twice.

I just want to repeat an anecdote that I think I told on this board before. It seems appropriate.

I found out my stepmother was against gay marriage, which shocked me. She's not the brightest bulb, but I never thought she was a bigot. Well, it turned out that she thought they could have civil unions (separate but equal!), but that "marriage" was specifically (given to humans by God) for heterosexual couples who were going to procreate.

This was her belief. I don't think she thought about this for more than two seconds after her church told her this was to be her belief because she's well past reproductive age and married my father only a few years ago.
