A Refreshing Honesty?

Last week former Penn State and retired professional basketball player John Amaechi came out and admitted he was gay. Retired Miami Heat guard Tim Hardaway responded to this news:

"You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people," he said while a guest on Sports Talk 790 The Ticket. "I'm homophobic. I don't like it. It shouldn't be in the world or in the United States."

I suppose we should commend him for being an open and honest bigot. Hardaway later apologized for his comments, but it was too late, he lost his job as a league spokesman for the NBA.
