Tim Hardaway Hates Gay PeopleFormer basketball star Tim Hardaway hates gays--he said so in a recent radio interview while discussing John Amaechi's coming out.
I guess I won't be hanging out with him anytime soon, since I happen to love gays. That, and I can only think that someone that would claim to hate an entire group of people must live a very sad life. No matter what you think about homosexuality, hating an entire group of people can never be a good thing. I wonder where such anger even comes from. I just wish he had someone in his life to show him how wrong he is.
I heard about this story this morning on a local radio talk show on my way to work. The moderate-but-right-leaning Republican host didn't do anything to stick up for gay folks, but he did a great job of calling out his callers for their bias. Basically, they nearly all supported Hardaway's comments, but when pressed, they all admitted they would not have been so pleased had he publicly said he hated some other groups like Christians, African Americans, handicapped people, divorcees, etc. In their minds, it's ok to hate people, as wrong as you are hating the right kind of people.
Who was it that said it was easy being gay again?
