Twins Prospect Reggie Williams Doesn't Hate Gay People, He Just Wants To Know Why There Are So Many Of Them These Days

About a year ago this article about Twins prospect Reggie Williams was published on It was a nice little profile on a guy trying to make it in the big leagues while also giving back to his community.

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.
