Super Bowl hero David Tyree is not ashamed...

[From Tyree's video opposing sodomite marriage] I'm not political, I approach more from an angle of prayer. As much as people are going to voice their opinions and make those pushes in a negative direction, I feel like athletes, believers or people who are very strong toward marriage, especially in places of position need to really take this opportunity to voice it. Marriage is one of those things that is the backbone of society. So if you redefine it, it changes the way we educate our children, it changes the perception of what is good, what is right, what is just.

[Tyree twittered] People of faith ... direct some prayers my way. Got darts comin from every direction. Blessed are those persecuted for His name's sake.

The ethics professor at the Presbyterian Church in America's Covenant Theological Seminary told Christianity Today that he opposed sodomy laws. I wrote him a letter expressing my concern over his efforts to legalize sodomy and Covenant's president at the time, Bryan Chapell, wrote to reassure me that his professor was not going soft on homosexuality. Duly noted.

Now, the battle has moved on to sodomite marriage and "marriage equality" is all the rage...

We must legalize sodomite marriage or we are repudiating "a just and equitable society."

While the Covenant Seminary prof and R2K hobbyists connive at the world's rebellion, cheer up! There are God-fearing athletes who are not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Here's David Tyree giving clear testimony to sin and righteousness and judgment.

Well then, I guess I can forgive him for the helmet catch.

"LIKE." :)

Ironic that David Tyree has to make the "not establishing a theocracy" disclaimer regarding gay marriage when those intent on establishing a humanistic, hedonistic theocracy get a free pass in the name of diversity (should that be capitalized as the name of their deity?). Just learned that the USDA has labeled me a heterosexist for my backward belief that marriage is one man, one woman. I don't even need to add the "for life" to qualify as a heterosexist.

I really like David's comment that marriage is the only analog for the relationship between God and His church. Although fatherhood should also be mentioned.

I didn't know Christians could be Patriot Fans.

Sorry -- couldn't help myself.

From a change.org email received June 27, 2011:

And the Minnesota Twins make 5 [previous 7 days' victories initiated by change.org members]. To cap it all off, CBS reported on Tuesday that the Minnesota Twins will be the 5th pro baseball team to make an "It Gets Better" video to help prevent suicide by teens who are bullied for being gay. Every team that's made a video (Twins, Red Sox, Cubs, Mariners, and Giants) has done so after a local Change.org member started a petition asking them to. As these victories add up, the cumulative effect is eroding the culture of homophobia in men's pro sports.
