All the gays hate Adrian Peterson
Brace yourself for a wave of attacks on Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson characterizing him as an intolerant bigot. The reason is simple: he refused to bow to political correctness and speak his mind.
Last Thursday, in an interview with Sirius/XM NFL Radio, Peterson said he does not support gay marriage, saying "To each his own. I’m not with it. But I have relatives that are gay. I’m not biased towards them. I still treat them the same. I love ‘em. But again, I’m not with that. That’s not something I believe in. But to each his own."
Peterson's statement after radio hosts Bruce Murray and Amani Toomer asked him if the Vikings' release of punter Chris Kluwe was motivated by his outspoken support of gay marriage.
Peterson doubted it had anything to do with it, and then stepped into the gay marriage debate.
Peterson's stand could lead to widespread condemnation and criticism, not unlike what former Jet Tim Tebow faced for speaking out on his personal beliefs. While the reigning NFL MVP was diplomatic with his words, that did not stop some gay activists from criticizing his opinion, because it didn't agree with their opinion.
DTLAL Magazine tweeted "Hater & Bigot Adrian Peterson of @Vikings comes out as a hater of #LGBT." Other bloggers and even some news websites characterized Peterson's comments in a negative light, often characterizing them as "anti-gay," including David Woods of Manolith.com.
