Australian boxer and internationally-renowned idiot Anthony Mundine has made his position clear: homosexuality is bad, Aboriginals can’t be gay, and it’s OK for him to say that because some of his friends are homosexuals.
Here’s one recent comments, sic throughout: “that ain’t in our culture & our ancestors would have there head for it!” and also “I got nothing against homosexuality, if you’re gay, be gay, that’s you’re choice, that’s your right in this day and age.” and “I won’t bow to the politically correct notion that it’s OK.”
Mundane, excuse us, Mundine was particularly incensed about a gay character on the show Redfern, which he deemed inappropriate for kids.
His spokesman, whose name we’ve been unable to find, made things worse. “He has a lot of homosexual friends, he’s not against gay people but in his beliefs he doesn’t support homosexuality,” he said.
Haha. OK, it’s nice to know that he has “a lot” of homosexual friends. Can you produce one? Just one single person who is gay, and who knows what Anthony says about them, and is still willing to call him a “friend”?
Previously, he described the September 11th attacks as “fighting for God’s law” and that “America brought it on themselves.” So, yeah, a real role model, this guy.
Ultimately, this is kind of a non-issue, and boils down to some dumb comments from a sports moron who nobody respected anyway.
