Thread: Gay Marriage
As ironic as it is that I'm introducing this issue considering I really couldn't care less. I thought I should post this as it would likely be posted at some time anyways.
Taken from a recent radio interview of Adrian Peterson.
Adrian Peterson on gay marriage:
To each his own. Iím not with it. But I have relatives that are gay. Iím not biased towards them. I still treat them the same. I love 'em. But again, Iím not with that. Thatís not something I believe in. But to each his own.
Other stuff from the interview
Adrian Peterson on the departure of Chris Cluwe:
It hurt me to see him leave. He was a good friend of mine and a really cool guy, man. Probably one of the smartest guys I've ever been around, man. ... Different.
Ha ha not at all, man. Toby is my guy, man. Toby is my guy! He's a smart guy... He helps that running back room a lot, and does a lot with the special teams as well. He's just a great teammate.
Adrian Peterson when asked what Christian Ponder can improve on:
I don't feel right to sit here and point out (Ponder's) flaws when there are things I need to improve on, as well.

It is obscene, disgusting, morally reprehensible and wrong on many levels...
that this is even a debate in what's considered to be a developed country in the west.
I don't know how long this thread will last.
A developed country is often represented with human rights in the center of it's fundamentals. And equal rights for all humans are the foundation of those rights.

The Bill of Rights was created to protect the minority from the majority and the government. The equal protection clause (14th Amendment) should have set this matter to bed long ago.
Read Adrian Peterson's comments again, but replace "gay" with "black". People still talk that way down south. Heck, people still talk that way down the road.

How I interpreted AP's stance:
I disagree with and do not understand homosexuality and gay marriage. But I do not wish to legislate against it. And I do not wish to force my beliefs on homosexuality/gay marriage upon others.Vegans are eating the rainforests. =(

My assumption, is Peterson is against being gay, but he doesn't care that others are gay, or that they support gay marriage. This is because, he's not gay, and can't understand it, just like everyone else here who's not gay. I could care less what people do in their own time, as long as they're not dancing in leotards against me, showing their flamboyancy all over with rainbows of glitter while I"m walking down the street, I could give less than a shit. THere's a time and a place for that in the pride parades and other specific events, which I don't really care about. If you attend that, you know what you're getting into. I'd equate that to visiting a stripper and being disgusted if a stripper shoves her tits in your face. You're there, you have to know what's going to happen.
He's playing it off as best he can as being open and accomodating to anyone. I don't think he's judgmental, nor would he protest gay marriage, and I"m sure he'd vote in favor of allowing it, but I can tell a little bit that he's been brought up to think being gay is wrong. I'm willing to bet he was one of the millions and millions of kids in North America who refer to stupid things as "that's f'n gay", or call other kids gay just to tease them, even though they aren't. It is what it is.

Gays should have the right to be miserable as the rest of us married people!
I'm not real interested about what a football player thinks regarding anything unrelated to the game.
