We told you Monday about former NFL star and Super Bowl champion David Tyree’s offer to trade God his Super Bowl championship ring for a nationwide end to gay marriage. Yes, we know… Groan.

Tyree is responding to claims that he is a bigot by assuring us that he’s not one, even though he absolutely is. Just look at the definition:

Yuh-huh.

I’m going to go ahead and say that citing his own personal religious beliefs as evidence that millions of people don’t deserve the equal treatment under the law that he enjoys certainly qualifies him as a bigot.

Well, he’s in good company. The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck is now defending Tyree’s position, claiming he’s not a bigot at all. Rather, he’s simply a full-time man of God.

No.

He’s a bigot.

Also defending Tyree is Memphis White Supremacist-cum-radio host James Edwards, who voiced his support for Tyree on the subject of gay marriage saying, “Even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then. While I might not agree with David Tyree on anything else, on this single issue, he is absolutely right.”

No matter how you slice it, and boy oh boy is it ever popular to make with the “I don’t hate anyone, I just believe…” talk these days – wishing, wanting, legislating or voting to prevent LGBT Americans from access to the same rights and rewards that straight Americans enjoy is bigotry. And while we are on the subject here, using your faith to argue a matter of law is just straight unAmerican.

    I love that the only part of David Tyree’s tirade that bothered Shari is the part where his bigotry hangs off of our shoulders onto her a bit.  Tyree said “You can’t teach what you don’t know” and as a single Mom Shari will have to teach her son about being a man.  But only because she didn’t honor the sanctity of the marriage to her son’s father. 

  • I have always disliked Elisabeth Hasselbeck and her points of view. I understand why she’s on the View, not because she’s like by many, just because she makes the rest of the crew look good.

    Oooh that was a wittily placed comma in the title of this article.

    I don’t like throwing around the word “bigot.”  It’s charged and often used as a slanderous weapon to tear down the credibility of one side of an argument.  Also, I’m not sure if you edited that definition or not, but Merriam-Webster goes a little further:

    Definition of BIGOT
    : a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

    I’m not sure Tyree was using hatred; I do think he was using blind and impractical religious doctrine, which is his right (damn straight).  Let him have his opinion.  I’ll carry on with my life, regardless.

    sorry, Sheri was married to her son’s father, for nearly 10 yrs in fact. please see her bio at IMDB ( http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0791868/bio ) it’s also my understanding from the little i’ve heard that he walked out because he couldn’t handle having an autistic child.
