    Giants Hire Anti-Gay Former NOM 'Champion of Marriage' Spokesperson

    Back in the summer of 2011, three years after his historic Super Bowl XLII catch for the New York Giants, David Tyree entered the national spotlight again -- on a different playing field, however.

    Claiming that if New York passed same-sex marriage, it would "be the beginning of our country’s sliding toward, you know, it’s a strong word, but anarchy." He also said, “two men will never be able to show a woman how to be a woman." and with that, Tyree threw his helmet onto the marriage equality field and began a short-lived career as an anti-gay bigot.

    “How can marriage be marriage for thousands of years and now all the sudden because a minority, an influential minority, has a push or an agenda and totally reshapes something that was not founded in our country, not founded by man, something that’s holy or sacred?,” Tyree asked. It is not irrelevant to note that Tyree himself is a minority, one who would not have been allowed to marry a white woman if he desired, until the Supreme Court ruled in Loving v. Virginia.

    “There are only two issues that are hot topics that are near and dear to God’s heart, and that is same-sex marriage and abortion,” Tyree also told reporters at the time.

    He also went on Fox News Business to say, "I don’t want my kids to think homosexuals are normal."

    Today, the New York Giants announced they have hired David Tyree as their new Director of Player Development.

    Speaking about the importance the Director of Player Development plays, Giants Coach Tom Coughlin in a statement said,

    “Player engagement has become extremely important in any franchise,” Coughlin said. “It is the working relationship with the players to aid them in their continuing education, their development as young men, the opportunities in the business world and in networking in the city that they happen to be playing in. It is there to help instruct them, make them aware of the issues and the problems that exist out in the community and the world to try to keep them focused on their job and not fall into trouble.

    In other words, Tyree, an anti-gay marriage activist and born-again Christian will serve as a mentor to new NFL Giants players.

    Here are Tyree's "anarchy" comments:

    And here's Tyree's anti-gay marriage video for the National Organization For Marriage:

    Tyree apparently is also a believer in demons.

    On what appears to be his Facebook page, Tyree several times posted this video, urging, "if you are willing to commit to weekend [sic] immersed in God," to join him.
