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?

If we were to use his same train of thought, could we point out to him that the blacks were slaves for years before an "influential minority" had the "agenda" to make them equal with whites?

What business is it of his who gets married and who doesnt? This man is just angry that black people were slaves so he feels like he needs to take it out on the gay community. God doesn't like nasty, hateful beings.

I just asked a whole bunch of people who David Tyree was without using the internet (gay, straight, sportsfans, etc...) No one could remember any signifigant contribution he made to society...I guess that answers our question.

Bottom line....the "minorites", who do not believe in gay marriage, all stems from their own insecurities. Everyone says that its a sin and blah, blah, blah! So is cheating on your wife/husband. So is the 50% divorce rate that heterosexual couples now have! Marriage is marriage? Its the 21st century....time to learn how to text and realize that milk is no longer 25 cents a gallon!

My guess is you tell your wife or girlfriend NOT TO BLOW YOU. Too bad, you dont know what you're missing. And let's guess, you never tried to slip it in the backdoor?

Personally, I'm ashamed that a land based on freedom is being met with such harsh opinions.

I'm a straight man, 28 years old, engaged to the woman of my dreams, and was raised to be accepting of everyone. My circle of friends include straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, black, white, green, etc..

Why are we so afraid of change? Just as people evolved, society has too.

Ahhh look, religion is responsible for yet another dumb situation. Ironic that we are expected to be tolerant of religion when it won't be tolerant of others.

Then again, these are the words of a dopey football player....

You must have a very sad and boring sex life. Most hetero couples do (some of) these things as well.

@Muppet, I totally this agree, yes i m sad and pathetic, now that thats out..
You can look at a person and say hes black, or hes white, or hes asian..
You can't look at a person in the same manner and say hes gay or not gay. Thats why there is a thing called "COMING OUT THE CLOSET"

of course on this site most people think there is some gay gene, because most people on TMZ are gay, YES I AM GAY AND IT IS MY OWN CHOICE DAMNIT.

@freedom

I'm not quite sure I'm following your post. You say there is such a thing as coming out of the closet. Why do you feel that you should need such a thing? Wouldn't it be better if homosexuality was accepted by everyone, therefore there would be no need for a coming out? It would just be a relationship that didn't matter, just like a man and a woman. I say when you no longer feel the need to "come out" then the change has finally been made that makes you equal. You also state that you've made the decision to be gay and it's your choice. While I think you have the right to be who you are, I find it hard to believe you chose it. My gay friends tell me that they were attracted to the same sex from the time they were little, so it definitely wasn't something they chose. Maybe you are the exception?

there is absolutely nothing wrong with men, males, boys having a strong appreciation and even 'love' for other males, boys and men. but with the overwhelming degree of subjugation and subduing of women and females, and girls, collectively, as a system, and flat out misogyny that they seemingly use as a given for this 'collective and deep rooted love', there is no way in the world that so called 'gay marriage' and 'legalizing' this union, which has to this date only proven to have increased hatred and objectification of women, girls and females, is a good idea at all. and all the gays who blissfully ignore these facts can go shove it and go to hell already. gay men are some of the most successful in EVERY!!! INDUSTRY! WORLDWIDE!! anyone who still speaks of harassment, disadvantage and discrimination in view of this very plain and simple fact, is not only a tard, but really ignorant as well.

@TheMarshmallowMan:

Don't use the antique Greece or Rome as references or role-model-societies!!
They were also PRO-PEDOPHILIA and PRO-SLAVERY!! You should also read a history book or two!!

@Tyree: big facepalm!
