A former New York Giants wide receiver may have gone from a loved figure to a hated one in New York after his comments on the possibility of gay marriage being legalized in the state.
David Tyree, who became a hero after making a game-changing catch in Super Bowl XLII, made a video for the National Organization for Marriage, warning of “anarchy” if gay marriage is legalized.
“If they pass this gay marriage bill, what I know will happen is this will be the beginning of our country sliding toward … it’s a strong word, but, anarchy,” Tyree said. “That will be the moment itself where our country loses its grip with what’s right. Marriage is one of those things that is the backbone of society. So if you redefine it, it changes the way we educate our children, it changes the perception of what is good, what is right, what is just.”
