Dungy’s potential appointment drew flak from liberal groups such as People for the American Way and Americans United for Separation of Church and State, who said Dungy’s vocal opposition to gay marriage made him an inappropriate choice for the panel.
Both groups pointed to Dungy’s endorsement of a gay marriage ban in Indiana and his involvement with a conservative public policy group, the Indiana Family Institute.
“The Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships council shouldn't be used to reward voices of intolerance like Tony Dungy,” PFAW’s director of public policy, Tanya Clay House, had said in an earlier statement.
Now Tony Dungy is a remarkable human being. He has contributed greatly to his community both in Tampa and in Indianapolis, is a born-again Christian, suffered but kept his head up with the tragic loss of his son, and has served under an appointment by Bush 43 to be a member of The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation.
Now because he holds a view that maybe 80% of Americans hold that gay marriage shouldn't be legalized, he gets flack by the leftists? Because he doesn't march lock in step with the rest of the Obamunists he is a "voice of intolerance"? I don't know Tony Dungy's political views, and I don't want to know them. If not for the leftists, Dungy would be on this committee. Maybe if Tony Dungy had bombed federal buildings or screamed out "God Damn America" at the top of his lungs while giving a speech, he would have received not only the position, but adulation from the liberal fools.
But no. Because of Dungy's belief as a Christian that marriage (as it should be) should be between one man and one woman, he is thrown under Obama's bus. He will still play a small role with fatherhood responsibilities and other issues, but the leftists pushed him out of the faith based council. Maybe the Wrong Reverend Wright is looking for something to do and he'll receive the call instead.
Another victim of the Obama bus
