Minnesota Vikings running back, Adrian Peterson, made it clear in an interview with Sirius/XM NFL Radio last week that gay rights are not something he's, "with." He was asked his thoughts on the Vikings cutting longtime punter Chris Kluwe earlier in May. Kluwe is an outspoken advocate for gay rights and gay marriage.
"I have relatives who are gay. I'm not biased towards them. I still treat them the same. I love 'em. But… I'm not with that. That's not something I believe in. But to each his own," he said.
Gay marriage will be legal in the state of Minnesota on August 1st of this year, and Peterson made his point that while others can do what they want, gay marriage is not something he believes should be happening. During the interview, the MVP also attempted to save as much face as possible while making his not-so-politically-correct statements.
"It hurt me to see him leave," Peterson said about Kluwe. "I'm sure the Vikings organization didn't release him based on that [his beliefs]…They know Kluwe. They've been knowing him for a long time. They know he's outspoken."Read more... Join the Conversation...
