PhoboQuotable - Kenneth Hutcherson

"Football is like the army -- it's a battle field. In war you have to trust the guy that's next to you. Now, if a teammate has different views about what they're attracted to in the showers it's going to affect the team. It'll destroy the oneness.

"Men are going to be more comfortable with other heterosexuals. It's like having a woman on the team or having a woman in the shower. How can you keep your mind on the game when you're thinking about running back to the showers? It would have a tremendous effect. It would be safer for the team and the individual if they didn't come out.

"When you have a team worth millions and millions of dollars anything that would mess with the oneness must be removed from the team. Homosexuality is a very divisive issue -- it would affect the camaraderie." - Former NFL star and current anti-gay preacher Kenneth Hutcherson, writing in today's Washington Post. Hutcherson is one of the most hatefully vocal opponents of anti-bullying laws in public schools.
