NFL Coach Tony Dungy’s Freedoms Questioned by “Gay” Activists

Tuesday, March 13th, 2007

Why would homosexual activist Kathy Sarris suggest that Indianapolis Colts Coach Tony Dungy (pictured below) should not speak in favor of Biblical marriage or speak at a conservative group’s fundraiser? (Did she object when [a democratic presidential candidate] spoke at HRC? Nope.) Is she unaware that under the First Amendment even her opponents enjoy freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom of association? Her objections expose her ultimate goal: to subjugate our constitutional freedom of religion and freedom of speech to a new “right” — the “right” of homosexuals to receive approval from all Americans at all times.

Indiana Family Institute Vocally Opposes Gay Marriage

tony-dungy.jpg…Some local and national gay rights groups have questioned [Indianapolis Colts coach Tony] Dungy’s decision to appear at a fundraising banquet this month for the institute, which has been a leading supporter of a proposed state constitutional amendment defining marriage as only between one man and one woman…

Kathy Sarris, president of the Indiana Equality Education Fund, a gay rights advocacy group, told The Indianapolis Star:

“I am a little disappointed in that I would think he would want to stay out of the political arena, and the Family Institute is a political organization.”

“Coach Dungy’s feelings on the importance of marriage and family are well known,” the team statement said. “He, of course, is free to speak to any group he wishes. The club does not take positions in political issues in which it is not directly involved. The Colts do not endorse any political or religious position taken by any group that any Colts employee decides to speak or lend his or her name to.”

Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Sponsors Gay Movie Featuring Homosexual 11 Year-Old

Saturday, November 25th, 2006

TAKE ACTION – E-mail Richard Peddie, President of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, to express your concern.

Excerpted from Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Sponsors Gay Movie Featuring Homosexual 11 Year-Old, by Hilary White, published Nov 24, 2006, by Lifesite News:

The Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team announced today that they have lent the team’s name and logo to a film depicting a homosexual Leafs player. The film portrays a Leafs player who wants to “come out” as a public homosexual, his live-in partnership with the team’s lawyer and their adopted “son,” described as “a budding queen of an 11-year-old boy.”

breakfast-with-scot.jpgThe film is based on the book of the same title about an 11 year-old boy who is described in an Amazon.com book review as “mincing” and “swishy,” and who has to be prevented from wearing pantyhose, eyeliner and perfume to school.

“Breakfast with Scott”, now being shot on location in Toronto and Hamilton, will go ahead with the willing cooperation of the team’s management. The Toronto Star reports that actor Tom Cavanaugh who depicts the fictional player, Eric McNally, was “shocked” that the Leafs management agreed to allow the team to be depicted in a homosexual propaganda film.

Cavanaugh remarked to the Star on the significance of using the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team, one of the icons of Canadian culture as the background for a story about open homosexuals and endorsing child homosexuality. “There’s something instant to the viewer when you put on a Leafs jersey or any Original Six jersey.”

Olympic swim champion Mark Tewksbury, a board member of the Gay and Lesbian Athletics Foundation, said, “I think it’s really great that (the team management) are supporting it. I know it’s an iconic team, but I think it makes sense this is happening in Canada because we’ve been far ahead on these issues.”

Excerpted from NBA Great Charles Barkley Mulls Run For Ala. Gov., Supports Gay Marriage, by , published Sept , 2006, by the pro-homosexuality 365Gay.com:

“Religious people in general are so discriminatory against other people, and that really disturbs me,” he said. “My idea of religion is we all love and respect. We all sin, but we still have common decency and respect for other people. So right now I’m struggling with my idea of what religion is.”

He also said he supports gay marriage.

“I think if they want to get married, God bless them,” Barkley said. “Gay marriage is probably 1 percent of the population, so it’s not like it’s going to be an epidemic. Hey, trust me, I’m never going to kiss you and say, ‘Chris, you’re sexy.'”
