Super Bowl Hero: Gay Marriage Will Lead to 'Anarchy'

6/16/2011 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-NY Giants receiver David Tyree -- who made the LEGENDARY helmet catch in Super Bowl XLII -- is coming out against gay marriage HARD ... claiming it's the first step on the road to "ANARCHY."061511_david_tyree_still



Tyree made the statements during an interview earlier today with the National Organization for Marriage -- a faith-based anti-gay marriage group.

During the interview, Tyree is asked about the push to legalize gay marriage in the United States -- and says if it happens, "This will be the beginning of our country sliding toward ... it's a strong word, but anarchy."

To reinforce his point, Tyree says, "You can't teach something that you don't have ... so two men will never be able to show a woman how to be a woman."

And the kicker, Tyree -- who's black -- says, "How can marriage be marriage for thousands of years and now all the sudden because a minority, an influential minority, has a push or agenda ... and totally reshapes something that was not founded in our country."

FYI -- Tyree's statement comes almost 44 years to the day after interracial marriage was legalized in the United States ... thanks, in part, to the agenda of an influential minority.

David Tyree is 100% RIGHT. Do we vilify a gay man for saying a heterosexual lifestyle is wrong? Of course not - that would be bigotry. We can NO LONGER speak up in this country, or disagree with someone or something without immediately being called a bigot or racist. Our country is falling apart - and we're wondering why. Look around us. Anything goes now, and it coincides with the social agendas being forced down our throats.

Uh, weren't blacks an influential minority not long ago? I remember people saying the same thing about civil rights of African Americans. He sounds like a rich white guy 50 years ago.

If marriage is so sacred then we should outlaw divorce.

Good going Tyree!! Finally someone to stand up for what is right! Real men stand up for what they believe in and don't apologize like the wimps Kobe and Obama! Tyree, you are awesome!

MeMe MeMe

It's wonderful to see such an influential man standing up for what he believes in. We need more like him!

Why does anyone care who someone marries, grow the f up. The strongest empires (greek and rome) embraced homosexuality and only faltered when Christianity took over. Maybe he should pick up a history book.

Lets get real! It's wrong all you all know it! Marriage is between a woman & a man! Now how would you multiple any other way! Please don't be so stupid to say a surrogate, that just enforces what I said!

Strong words for a guy who catches balls in his face.

I applaud this young man for speaking up.

David Tyree was raised by a single mother and has 2 sisters. Yet SOMEHOW he managed to "learn to be a man". Sort of flies in the face of his asinine logic, no?

blacks love to make fun of other superior people cause they feel ashamed of their race, thats a proven fact.

People go and express their opinions everyday in a small way for some and in a big way for others but still at the end of the day as for the past however many years nothing gets accomplished and it is forgot about so really we are all just wasting our typing skills on any opinion related article. Anarchy will come regardless I believe but I don't condone it personally...oops I shared an opinion where's glaad?

My my.....besides TMZ being mostly a GAY front; I am not surprised that most of the comments left by gays are so INTOLERANT. What happened to tolerance? So let me guess, if others do not like the idea of gay relationships, they have no voice and are not tolerant and if any comment made criticizing homosexuality is met with abrasive attacks? Burn in hell you hypocrites!

This gentleman makes excellent points and it's refreshing to see someone in the public spotlight take a common sense stand against the depravity of our society as of late. It's also laughable how TMZ stressed the fact that he is black and cited the amount of time it's been since interacial marriage was legalized. It is fallable to attempt to compare race/gender to a behavior. Race/gender are non-transferable, immutable characteristics. We cannot control our race or gender. We can however, all control our behavior.

SHAME ON TMZ PLAYING THE RACE CARD. You can not compare the treatment of blacks in this country to gays not being able to change the definition of marriage.

The gay movement is creating more H8 than they can imagine by trying to drive their lifestyle down everyone's throats! Hollywood may be your punching bag, however the rest of America isn't "down" with your shena****ns! If you all had your way, you'd request and demand that the BIBLE be re-written.


IMO, GLAAD is FOS! (And I've researched their agendas)

Hey Phil

You forgot how many young girls are "crankin" out babies. We dont need to worry about populating the earth. You seem to be a VERY closed-minded, middle America, Republican. Must suck to be you.

I totally agree with this young man.

Why should we give in to a small minority?

Gay marriage is not marriage.

HEY BEE,

Let's ban INTER-RACIAL MARRIAGE TOO! Remember the USA was founded on the separation of CHRUCH AND STATE, yet the Government STILL allows the bible to "rule" on what is and isnt "acceptable" in terms of marriage. THAT is pretty hypocritical if you ask me.

My guess is that YOU BEE, have a white sheet and hood in your closet and wear it frequently.

He has First Amendment rights. Sucks for those that don't agree with him. I commend him for his speaking his mind.

The same type of remarks were made about interracial marriages. Interracial marriage hasn't made the world stop revolving, gay marriages want either.

Colleen....what does 21st Century have anything to do with this? You think GOD has changed his mind on what is an abomination and sinful because its the 21st Century. You are a mouthpiece for the gay movement and do not try to come on TMZ claiming to be a straight; nothing worse than a luke warm comment. The gay lifestyle is PERVERSE...go ahead and call GOD a liar! You all should be sent to Iran and then let me see you spout your mouth off there.

========================================

My sentiments exactly, HL is a board member of GLAAD, so when he retires they HAVE to replace him with someone of equal passion for the "movement". How is THAT not discrimination??
