MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — NFL MVP Adrian Peterson says he has family members who are gay whom he loves and respects. But on gay marriage, the Minnesota Vikings running back says ”that’s not something I believe in.”

Peterson made his comments in a recent interview with Sirius/XM NFL radio. He was asked his thoughts on the Vikings cutting longtime punter Chris Kluwe, an outspoken advocate for gay rights and gay marriage.

Peterson says he considers Kluwe a good friend. He says: ”I have relatives who are gay. I’m not biased towards them. I still treat them the same. I love ’em. But again, I’m not with that. That’s not something I believe in. But to each his own.”

Gay marriage will become legal in Minnesota on Aug. 1.

  1. People have to be made aware that when they share their bigotry, they, wittingly or unwittingly, inspire the bigots; they, in essence, are in the stands, cheering on the ‘fag bashers’.

      Just because someone doesn’t believe in practicing homosexuality, does not mean they are homophobic, or go around bashing homosexuals. You can not force someone to go against their moral beliefs to appease the conscience of others. Someone wanted it to be heard because they asked the question.

      Without heterosexuals mankind would die out. Why would God create a possibility for that when he says he fruitful and populate the Earth?
