Dallas sports anchor Dale Hansen and Ken Blackwell of the anti-gay hate group Family Research Council appeared on yesterday's CNN Tonight to discuss Michael Sam’s emotional reaction to being drafted into the NFL as well as Sam’s future prospects with the league.

Hansen, whose February speech in support of Sam went viral, was his usual articulate self while Blackwell went through the FRC talking points of ESPN and Sam trying to advance a homosexual “agenda” by televising Sam's kiss with his boyfriend.

Said Blackwell: 

Sam kissI thought the kiss was inappropriate and over the top, but I am just surprised with the duplicity among owners and leadership of the NFL. I take it it was just a few years ago when there were players who criticized Tim Tebow for wearing his faith on his sleeve. There were folks who basically said he was not a good football player; that's why they were critical of him, not because he was a professed Christian who practiced his faith in all aspects of his life.

I -- I really do question the network's judgment, editorial judgment in putting the kiss on -- on TV. Look, this is a very clear opportunity for Mr. Sam and others to co-op a professional sports, in this case the NFL, as a platform and as a force multiplier for advancing their agenda.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Hansen added:

"I do not understand why so many people are so afraid of a gay man in an NFL locker room. I think the other players are gonna be okay. I've worked with gay men in my station and in my department for more than 40 years now and not one of those guys has ever hit on my and I'm starting to get a little ticked off about it."

Hansen

Dale Hansen, the weeknight sports anchor on Dallas-Fort Worth's WFAA, had something to say to the anonymous NFL execs that were quoted in Sports Ilustrated's shamefully-executed follow-up to the Michael Sam news.

Said Hansen in a special 'unplugged' commentary:

You beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs, pulling her hair out by the roots? You're the fourth guy taken in the NFL draft.

You kill people while driving drunk? That guy's welcome.

Players caught in hotel rooms with illegal drugs and prostitutes? We know they're welcome.

Players accused of rape and pay the woman to go away?

You lie to police trying to cover up a murder? We're comfortable with that.

You love another man? Well, now you've gone too far!

Watch Hansen let 'em have it, AFTER THE JUMP...
