I wouldn't have had as much of a problem with it if he said "gay people make me uncomfortable" or "I don't approve of or agree with their lifestyle." But he didn't say that, he said flat-out "I hate gay people," and said that if he knew someone on his team was gay, he would try to get them kicked off the team. Fuck this guy.
I'm glad he said it. Bigots these days tend to wrap their bigotry up in nice, polite phrases, and that makes it too easy for people to think that we're all one big happy tolerant society. And therefore it's easy for them to think, why do we need this gay pride parade, and why do I have to keep hearing about people coming out of the closet, and aren't anti-discrimination laws really just anti-Christian bigotry?
