    This whole meme about anti-mariage-equality people being the victims because they are challenged on what they say in public is really grinding my gears. Way to flip the script. Argh!!

  2. MacroT says

    No, he isn’t a bigot, he just wants to deny law-abiding citizens their equal rights to which everyone should be entitled to because of his particular religious beliefs.

    When Elisabeth first started working on the view she was extremely offensive, vile and evil. Just like now. I remember when President Bush at the time was trying to push a federal ammendment to ban gays from marrying and Elisabeth said and I quote “if a man and a man marrys than whats next, is a man going to marry a toaster.” Yes elisabeth everyone will start marrying toater ovens idiot. When Rosie became apart of the view she told rosie “well i see the way you interact with your children so yes i think i would allow for same sex marriage”. Wtf does the way rosie interact with her kids have to do with gay marriage? and than with melissa etheridge she said well i agree with same sex marriage but i just think the american people people should vote and decide what they want. And than the little sh*t for brains keep bringing up the word marriage saying well i think maybe gays shouldn’t have that word “marriage”. Like its the words thats keeping us from equality so if we just take out the word “marriage” we’ll have everything we’ve ever wanted . ugh she’s the reason republicans will always be viewed as simple narrow-minded bigoted idiots

    I love how Sherry Shepard’s only point of contention with his statement is the part that she could somehow spin into commentary on her own life.

  5. Dastius Krazitauc says

    Elisabeth acts like Tyree was just some passive bystander simply asked for his opinion. She forgot to mention he is actively campaigning to deny people their rights, and is therefore open to any criticism that comes his way!

  6. says

    “Hasselbeck proves once again that she is an idiot”

    yay, news.

    if he’s not a bigot then he’ll allow people with beliefs different than his to marry. but he won’t. because he’s a bigot.

  7. says

    Including gay couples in civil marriage will, according to some washed-up, inarticulate football player, lead to anarchy and society losing a grip with what is right. Can’t spin that as other than hate, sorry.

  8. Bart says

    First, what this idiotic, semi-articulate football player thinks about anything is a non-issue. Same can be said for this Survivor contestant. Who cares?

    But if I went out publically and said that as a Christian, I believe women should be subserviant to men. They should not speak, they should cover their heads in church and be silent. And a man should beat his children and if they speak ill of him, he shoudld kill them. I would be Biblically correct. But guess what, we’ve grown up as a culture, as humans. We no longer believe that the sun revolves around the earth, and the earth is flat.

    If you are a person of faith — and I am –if you actually know your scripture, know the origins, the meaning of the original words, the audience for whom much of it was written and everything encompassing the historical context, you would find out it says somethings much different than the modern homophobic interpretations. And quite honestly anyone preaching against gay men and women could never, ever call themselves Christians.

    But I do find it amazing whenever there is a bigot who says something hateful and ugly, Ms. Hasslebeck “knows them” and what is in their heart. Maybe she should keep company with people who actually share Jesus Christ’s values instead of these hateful souls.

    People are entitled to their opinions. Plain and simple. Tyree doesn’t have to like marriage between two people of the same sex. He is entitled to that opinion. At the same time, he has to understand that that opinion is a bigoted opinion. Period. He may have it but it is bigoted. If you feel that only certain people are entitled to certain rights, like white people should only be allowed to go to college or straight people marry, then you opinion is bigotted. You can’t say i love everyone but only some people are entitled to rights and not others. That’s what the civil rights movement was all about. Regardless of same sex or interracial, it is a civil rights matter and if you oppose it, then you are bigotted. accept that about yourself Tyree and move on!

  10. Paul says

    I agree with everyone here that Elizabeth has a point. he is entitled to his opinion. Just the same as we are entitled to think that he is a moron.
    He is not entitled to judge other people and actively campaign to take away other peoples rights.

  11. Paul says

    And also how can she possibly say that he ‘loves everyone’ when clearly he doesn’t ? He clearly thinks that Gay people are less than straight people because he is picking and choosing parts of the bible to deny us our rights. If he really where a man of god blah blah why hasnt he got long hair and a long beard ?

  12. Chuck Mielke says

    Folks like Tyree and Hasselbeck are great examples of people who simply mouth words without trying to understand what they say. Supposedly, Tyree “has no hate in his heart” but still wants to deprive people of a civil right established and maintained by the government. Hasselblech seems to think that “hatred” is only open, naked, personal hostility; no other manifestations of hatred qualify. And Tyree’s comments boil down only to the “unnatural” charge; he clearly has no idea what “natural” means. Such ignorant bimbos and bimbettes are paid to say stuff, and use their celebrity to influence the equally ignorant true believers.

  13. Dale says

    I am so sick of this religious values thing these people think they own. They are not religious no follow the teachings of Christ.

    The judging….
    The putting down and slander…
    The physical abuse…

    These are not Christ like people. In other words, cut the crap and get out of my bedroom, you were not invited to begin with.

  14. Attmay says

    Hey Christians,

    If you want to live as Jesus did, convert to Judaism. But if you’re not going to throw aside your bigotry, then we don’t want you!

  15. Eric says

    More proof that football players should stick to what they know: playing football and shutting the $%@# up. What’s the over/under on this guy getting caught in bed with another dude?

  16. kodiak says

    Let’s see, when were blacks allowed to become mormon? I think it was 1978. Before that point they were considered to have the “mark of cain”, and therefore unable to be mormon. It wasn’t a bigoted decision, it was merely religious belief. But under pressure from people and the government, the head mormon talked to God,(he can do that), and God said it was ok. Poor mormons, poor God, forced to accept blacks against their religious beliefs.

  17. Pete n SFO says

    I heard a joke today, “This rich, white lady says to the Scientologist, have you heard about the co-host so dumb she actually thought the world was FLAT?!”

    To which, Whoopi says, I think I already heard this one.

    Didn’t these clowns just defend Tracy Morgan last week?

  18. Hollywood, CA says

    Ignorance is a scary thing, baby… these fools are straight up blind, and making decisions for other folks without thinking it through.

    Imma pray for you, Tyreese… Imma pray…

  19. Confused in NJ says

    I do not understand why no one ever discusses the fact that religion has nothing to do with rights. It is the government that recognizes union and extends the rights under the law. Last I checked the first amendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” This country was founded on the principle that these religious views have no place in legislature.

  20. Mike says

    But how are we supposed to feel by people who say you can’t be full time committed to God and support gay marriage(people)… blah it’s kind of true for now at least, and I know EH tries hard to walk a fine line, i don’t feel that she’s homophobic. but ugh. Who is strong enough to stand up for both God and Gay people? That’s a brave man. I guess he doesn’t exist.

  21. Jedi says

    “Spokesbigot”? Ha, yeah, I see what you did there, Andy Towle. Clever.

    But let’s keep it nonobjective, Andy Towle, as that is your role, and let the commenters decide for themselves.

  22. Sargon Bighorn says

    I don’t hate Black football players, I love them as Jesus loves them. But they should no eat at the same cafe as me, nor drink at the same water fountain as me. Jesus loves them and I love them. See it’s all okay.

  23. Kevin Thor says

    I continue to marvel at how in the 21st Century, anybody can continue to put their faith in mythological beings, like god or jesus or allah or whatever. Gods and religions were created to control people. The time for that has long past. This jerk is just that a jerk. He had his 15 minutes, they are over is is a total zero in the book of life. I say let hhe and the other moron Tracey Morgan just continue to engineer the end of their careers.

    Uh, what?

    Anyway, Hasslecrackhead…*SMFH*

    The producers of The Spew really should be ashamed of themselves for bringing her on. There is absolutely nothing balanced about trotting out a seemingly brain-damaged, delusional know-nothing to squawk in the face of reasonable people for entertainment purposes. It was certainly nice to hear a rational statement coming from Whoopi. Kirstie said something about a statement being “judgy” but I couldn’t hear what was said just beforehand, and Sherri, of all people, shocked me with her very valid point. She must’ve used her Get-Out-Of-Stupid-Free card.

    Maybe, if we’re lucky, they’ll bring on Kirstie as a long-term replacement and one day, she’ll be just aggravated enough to lunge across the table and snap that screeching, irritating little blonde chicken head’s neck. Actually, the day they brought Hasslecrackhead on the show was the day I ceased watching, so whatever the fate of The Spew is, to me, irrelevant.

    I can only hope that some day, people will cease forcing relevance upon uneducated, overgrown children, and go back to having intelligent conversations about important issues instead of today’s “Everyone’s OPINION matters” garbage programming and so-called journalism.

  25. FunMe says

    Who freaking cares about what “convictions” that DOWN LOW guy says. He is a father to 2 kids he had without even marrying. He’s a freaking HYPOCRITE and a HOMOPHOBE that should STFU!

    He’s on the losing side. What a jerk!

    Meanwhile, you can believe whatever the F*** you want. But don’t go around telling other people to believe the way YOU do. A***hole!

    Again I repeat:

    TYREE: FATHER 2 CHILDREN OF OUT OF WEDLOCK!

    FREAKING HYPOCRITE SINNER!

  26. Matt26 says

    EH has a very little knowledge and she wants to show it.
    The best show so far has been the one with Dame Edna Everage. EH didn’t get DEE at all (surprise, surpries!).

  27. joe says

    Marriage equality would be the law of the land if we followed the position stated by Macro above: “No, he isn’t a bigot, he just wants to deny law-abiding citizens their equal rights to which everyone should be entitled to because of his particular religious beliefs.”

    Instead, we’ve fallen into this trap of calling everyone a hater. If we want to win public opinion on marriage equality, we need to win the political middle. We can only do that by persuasion and by appeals to reason. Calling someone a hater automatically tells them they’re our enemies, and it’s harder to win over an enemy than someone who (at least at the beginning of the discussion) is merely not on board with marriage equality.

  28. Wayne says

    So he can have kids out of wedlock, yet he thinks its quite alright to judge gay people and deny us our equality? – Not only a BIGOT but a HYPOCRITICAL BIGOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Whatev says

    Hasselbitch and tyroach are two buffoons throwing their emotional garbage at anything that moves. There is no need to point out their hyprocrisy, the God they believe in, will kick their asses for playing dumb.

  30. Mac says

    His comments directly justify violence against gays. So nice to see he is not a hater and that he has a right to express his views be the outcome of this segment

  31. AndyWarholsWig says

    “Marriage is the only relationship that actually mirrors a relationship with God..”

    I’m sorry. I can’t think of the last time I got home form work, cooked dinner while God exercised, then sat down with God to eat and chat about work before watching So You Think You Can Dance. Also, I don’t remember giving God a BJ before work yesterday. How does a marriage mirror a relationship with God, exactly?

  32. jh says

    Tyree’s not a hater? Thanks, Elizabeth. Yeah, I don’t hate you, man. I just want Child Protective Services to take your kids away from you, since you’re gay and not fit to raise them. Kumbaya.

  33. Angel says

    Whenwould be the day that people will realize that there is no God and all ideas against each other come from humans not wanting to treat others equally, I guess that would take a while!

  34. ocurlupndye says

    How soon they forget that it wasn’t too long ago that Blacks were considered 2nd class citizens..and were denied access to many things.Now he wants to become the very bigot that we all helped fight against.You need to go down south and be reminded how much you think your loved and accepted….NOT!!!! You’ve become the same person that kept your ancestors slaves and whores.
    Hasselbeck is a dumb blond that needs to shut up and just become some guys baby machine…no one wants to listen to an idiot.

  35. Derrick from Philly says

    “You’ve become the same person that kept your ancestors slaves and whores.”

    Have you really done any research on American slavery…other than watching “Gone With The Wind”? You might want to read Octavia Butler’s “Kindred”–it’s fiction, but she did a lot of research on slavery and how horrible it was.

    “…whores”? Oh, really.
