Sean Avery and the Hockey Homophobes
A few days ago NHL player Sean Avery released this message.
Only to trigger this tweet from an NHL player's agent.
Now the bigot tries to claim he isn't a bigot.
"To clarify. This is not hatred or bigotry towards gays. It is not intolerance in any way shape or form. I believe we are all equal... But I believe in the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman. This is my personal viewpoint. I do not hate anyone."
Only to be joined by another one.
“I completely and whole-heartedly support Todd Reynolds and his support for the traditional and TRUE (sic) meaning of marriage,” he Tweeted Tuesday afternoon.
Minutes later, he wrote: “Reynolds … Peter Vidmar … coming under the attack of the so-called liberal left.”
Great eh? No wonder the NHL world is one of the last bastions of homophobia in this country. No wonder it's such an ugly place of brutish violence, too many concussions, and Don Cherry. No wonder gay hockey players don't dare come out.
Do you really think gay marriage is safe in Harperland? Don't count on it.
Sean Avery is my hero.
And homophobes are SCUM...
