Baseball star: I would be ‘uncomfortable’ with having a gay teammate

Torii Hunter, who plays as a slugger for the Detroit Tigers, says he would find it “difficult and uncomfortable” to accept openly gay baseball players.  The 37-year-old claims it’s because of his Christian beliefs.

In an interview to the LA Times, which published an article about the lack of openly gay baseball players, Hunter said:  “For me, as a Christian … I will be uncomfortable because in all my teachings and all my learning, biblically, it’s not right,” he added: “It will be difficult and uncomfortable.”

Grant Hill, who plays for the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team, was also quoted in the article saying: “It’s still taboo in the locker room” for a player to be openly gay.

The criticism of him has been fairly muted, probably because he is black

My only question is - it is equally uncomfortable for him to be around heterosexual fornicators? I.e. unmarried team members with live-in girlfriends or party types who sow their wild oats? Although many people consider it "quaint" or "old fashioned" to be against fornication, it is as equally condemned by the Bible as homosexual activity.

When I grew up in this same county, during halloween in the late 1980s, I dressed up as an arab terrorist for halloween. I drew "death to america" on a white tshirt, wore a keffiyeh, and brought in a dummy grenage and a realistic looking M1911 cap gun (no caps).

Queers in major league baseball? Sounds like another "reality" TV show!

In 2013 Amerika, opinions are no longer acceptable unless they conform to those of the Marxist rulers. The funny part is, there are tens-of-millions of weak, gullible, and brain-dead Americans who still believe they live in a free country.

I am a Christian, and i would not be uncomfortable around gay people. I know many. Jesus hung around all people, he did not discriminate against anyone.

Anon 1:23......if you visited San Fran during gay pride days you'd be plenty uncomfortable. Don't believe me, just google or yoy tube the videos.

Annon 2:41 is 100% correct. We visited San Francisco without knowing it was a.gay pride day. Thank God my 5 yr old son was asleep most of the time. Nudity and sexual acts in the streets. I wanted to this up it was so disgusting.

Anon 1:23, with all due respect, avoiding reality does not make it go away. It's not death and taxes that we can't avoid. It's death and reality.

Who do you think helped push Prop 8 up and over the top in California? Blacks and Hispanics who are allowed to be openly hostile towards queers.

1:23 is correct - Christ himself was recorded as comfortable with those considered as not respectable, and even sought them out to socialize with them. That black person is no better than someone in apartheid South Africa who claimed it was his belief not to associate with black people (and they did have religious reasons for it).

3:42 Surely if you didn't like what you saw, you could have immediately gone to a part of SF where the Pride Parade was not in evidence. Or do you think everyone in SF should consult you on what is suitable before you honor them with a visit to their city?!
