NFL MVP Adrian Peterson: Gay Marriage "Not Something I Believe In"

 

Adrian Peterson should be commended for courageously sharing his views on marriage:

Adrian PetersonNFL MVP Adrian Peterson says he has family members who are gay whom he loves and respects. But on gay marriage, the Minnesota Vikings running back says “that’s not something I believe in.”

Peterson made his comments in a recent interview with Sirius/XM NFL radio. He was asked his thoughts on the Vikings cutting longtime punter Chris Kluwe, an outspoken advocate for gay rights and gay marriage.

Peterson says he considers Kluwe a good friend. He says: “I have relatives who are gay. I’m not biased towards them. I still treat them the same. I love ‘em. But again, I’m not with that. That’s not something I believe in. But to each his own.” (CBS)

    I'm not sure why anyone listened to Chris Kluwe in the first place. What makes professional athletes particularly authoritative on moral and social issues?

    I agree with you PairOdox whole heartedly. I will listen to my pastor, and pay attention to what the Bible tells me. But I don't care one bit
    about athletes and all of those immoral "hollywood types" that constantly cater to the gays.

    PairOdox, I also agree. A pro athlete's opinion on the matter is irrelevant, be it Chris Kluwe OR Adrian Peterson.
