About a year ago this article about Twins prospect Reggie Williams was published on mlb.com. It was a nice little profile on a guy trying to make it in the big leagues while also giving back to his community. He sounds like a pretty decent, thoughtful guy really. Except, tonight he engaged in an otherworldly stupid discussion on Twitter about the proliferation of gay people these days.

Look, being intellectually curious is one thing. Wondering aloud why there are so many gay people, referring to them as an abomination to God, equating some gay PDA with smoking crack in public and trotting out the old gay people all have AIDS thing, is quite another—certainly not a Hall Of Fame person thing to do.

Update 11:30 p.m.: According to a Twins blogger the Twins released Williams earlier this spring.
