Tony Dungy Makes It Clear That Only Straights Should Have Unhappy Marriages

Much debate last month surrounded lovable Colts coach Tony Dungy's appearance at an event for an anti-gay-marriage group (among other things) and whether or not Dungy would come out (so to speak) and endorse the group's platform. Well, he has. He "embraces" a ban on same-sex marriage.

"I appreciate the stance they're taking, and I embrace that stance," Dungy said. Local and national gay-rights organizations had criticized Dungy for accepting the invitation to appear at the banquet. The institute, affiliated with Focus on the Family, has been one of the leading supporters of the marriage amendment. "IFI is saying what the Lord says," Dungy said. "You can take that and make your decision on which way you want to be. I'm on the Lord's side."

We think we know what inspired this stance: This guy.
