In a story that was widely reported before it ever happened, Tony Dungy finally spoke at the Indiana Family Institute's banquet last night. In case you've forgotten, the IFI supports a constitutional amendment that "defines marriage as between one man and one woman." That's right; they don't just hate the idea of gay marriage — they're pretty sure that the founding fathers fucked up by not including it in the Constitution over 200 years ago.
The coach said his comments shouldn't be taken as gay bashing, but rather his views on the matter as he sees them from a perspective of faith. "We're not anti- anything else. We're not trying to downgrade anyone else. But we're trying to promote the family — family values the Lord's way," Dungy said.
What a fucking pussy. I hate it when people try to to mask their homophobia behind a veneer of politicized mumbo jumbo: "I'm not demeaning gays; I'm just on God's side in believing they don't deserve equal rights."
But hey, he won a Super Bowl. That entitles him to carte blanche and praise from Peter King, right? What are the poofs gonna do? Use their limp wrists to hold up signs of protest? Pshaw. Not in Indiana they aren't.
