Evander Holyfield's Son

My Dad Does Not Hate Gay People

1/6/2014 11:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0106_ewin_evander_holyfield_gettyEvander Holyfield may think homosexuality is wrong ... but his son says the heavyweight boxer's got nothing but love for gays -- and even had a great relationship with a gay in-law.

Ewin Holyfield tells TMZ ... Evander is no bigot -- despite being bashed for expressing his opinion on homosexuality during last night's "Celebrity Big Brother" in the UK.

Ewin says, "My dad is the most loving and caring person you will ever meet. He treats everyone like a human being ... even if they are homosexual."

In fact, Ewin says he has a gay uncle ... and Evander treated him like a brother.

Ewin adds, "My dad feels that being gay is a choice ... and naturally that's how things work.  You cannot procreate and make a baby with two women, or two men.  But at the same time, my dad is not going to judge someone for their sexual orientation."

Homosexuality is a sin but GOD says to love the sinner and hate the sin...You Gays need to realize that everyone who doesn't agree with homosexuality is homophobic....because they aren't!

Homosexuality isn't normal. If you disagree with me, you need to do some research. As in opening up a dictionary and seeing what the definition is. And homos are not "normal".

If someone thinks its unnatural and not normal to have black skin, that doesn't make them a racist. Don'tcha know? They just disagree with how you were born...

Shows how dumb and brain-dead they are. You CAN make a baby with 2 men or 2 women. Read up on reproductive technologies. It's the 21st century, baby! But try telling that to idiots who're clinging to religious superstitions from 2,000 years ago.

Note to people: if you say gays are abnormal or compare being gay to having sex with an animal then, yes, you are hateful and obviously have zero love for them. Sorry, you don’t get to spout hateful speech and then turn around and claim you don’t have a problem with gay people; it doesn’t work that way. If you want to spout hate then at least own up to it.

Ignorant people who create life they cannot afford or shelter say ignorant things. Why listen to anything someone who's managed to lose over 100 million says? Try a Rubber, Nice ear bite .

Im not against them but it is not normal from a historical and biblical stand point MY OPINION

Its well known in the gay community that gay men put down gays to cover up their sexual orientation to put everyone off their secret.

Your father is an idiot and you are a bigger idiot for defending him. Why would anyone chose to be something that could get them killed, and/or have the family alianate them ?

The homosexuality issue is so overdone. This occurs because, on average a gay man or lesbian will earn 80k per year. WHERE, is the job discrimination? They may Marry, where is the discrimination yet again? I find it odd that mental disorders(uni and bi) have practically the same
