For telling the truth. Please, don't stop. Keep telling the truth. Even when the homophobes and extremists try to shout you down, and they will, keep telling the truth. Even when some African-Americans, bathing in hypocrisy, try to stop you by saying being gay equates to being less than human, keep telling the truth.

I'd argue that your stance now is almost as significant as your Hall of Fame career. You've lended a high profile voice to the fight for equality and yes, keep telling the truth when you're told it's not that. Because it is.

Thank you, Michael Irvin. Hopefully other high profile athletes will follow your lead.

Please, keep telling the truth.

You're an idiot and should keep your opinions to yourself. Being gay is no different than being Black, White or Brown or even left handed. You're born that way. It is not a choice. It is not a lifestyle. It is LIFE. Who in their right mind would CHOOSE a life of fear, ostracism and diluted rights?

While you're digging up those statistics on diseases in the homosexual community, show me some statistics on high blood pressure and diabetes in the Black community.

Do you know why the Bible mentions homosexuality? BECAUSE IT'S BEEN AROUND AS LONG AS MANKIND. It is just as common in other species which makes it pretty natural to me.

You're probably one of those idiots that think we are all spawned from Adam and Eve. Open your mind or close your mouth...It's your choice.

It's about time you came out of the closet Freeman. A racist gay sportswriter, you really are one of a kind.

I agree. Sexual orientation is an immutable characterstic. It is not a "lifestyle" and it does not change. Those who deny this truth are like the flat earthers of old. We all must step back and see the big picture eventually.

"Even when the homophobes and extremists try to shout you down, and they will, keep telling the truth."

What truth? The truth about homosexuals? Trying to make an unnatural act natural isn't truth. Should we look at the statistics of AIDS and other diseases in the homosexual community? Is that truth, or does that get brushed under the carpet because it doesn't lend credibility to your backwards argument? Just because you're in favor of male ass sex doesn't make you or Michael Irvin Rosa Parks. Self righteous liberals in media are absolutely clueless. Stick to sports, schmuck.

Headline: "Irvin Backs Gays" "Freeman: Thank you, Michael"

Are they trying to tell us something about Freeman's sexual orientation? That would explain some things...

Any public support for gay rights is better than none, but jeez....
I bet they wish they had a celebrity ally who was less wide open to ad hominem attacks.
