Tony Dungy: "'I embrace' same-sex marriage ban"

"I appreciate the stance they're taking, and I embrace that stance," Dungy said. Local and national gay-rights organizations had criticized Dungy for accepting the invitation to appear at the banquet. The institute, affiliated with Focus on the Family, has been one of the leading supporters of the marriage amendment. "IFI is saying what the Lord says," Dungy said. "You can take that and make your decision on which way you want to be. I'm on the Lord's side."

Bil Browning of Bilerico was quoted in the Indianapolis Star article, "It is unfortunate that coach Dungy has chosen to align himself with the Indiana Family Institute," he said. "The Colts were supported this season by all of their fans -- gay and straight."

I assume that the coach also makes certain that his wife's head is covered and that she is silent in church. After all, that's what the Bible says.

Now, now, Lemm. You're not endorsing that "cafeteria-style" religion, are you? ;-)

I prefer the "all-you-can-eat-buffet-style" religion myself. Light on the fire and brimstone, heavy on the wine drinking...

I used to think so much of Tony. Not anymore.

Another reason I hesitate to identify myself as a Christian.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.info

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David

I am with Jason -

It is unfortunate, being that I know at least 15 gay men that are season ticket folders.

SC just made a gay marriage ban on our state constitution today.... also, they are forcing women to view ultrasouds minutes before abortion.

I wonder if we're going to be punished for allowing James Clyburn to become majority whip.

From the Houston Chronicle:

AUSTIN — Houston state Sen. Dan Patrick wants the state to pay $500 to women who give their babies up for adoption instead of aborting them, an idea some say borders on baby selling.
