Team: 'Mike [Wallace]’s comments do not reflect the views of the Miami Dolphins'

dolphinsThe Miami Dolphins quickly announced Monday that wide receiver Mike Wallace's Twitter comment about homosexuality doesn't reflect the team's views:

“Mike Wallace has apologized for his comments, and we have addressed the matter with him. Mike’s comments do not reflect the views of the Miami Dolphins. We believe in a culture of inclusiveness and respect, and any statements to the contrary are in no way acceptable to our organization. We will address the entire team about our policy of inclusion and make sure they all understand the importance of respecting individual choices.”

Mike Wallace was exercising his first amendments rights
free speech is alright as long as it doesn't offend anyone. So our first amendment is being taken away from us along with our second

Give us a break. The 2nd amendment is in no danger whatsoever, moreover it's probably more secure now than it's ever been. And pointing out that MW's stupidity on Twitter is not representative of his employer's stated policy is hardly trampling 1st amendment rights. All the Fins did was to clarify that Wallace's views are not those of the organization. As for it not offending anyone, that's a judgment call.

I think it takes a big man to say he doesn’t understand something. In the last few years there has been this push to make people agree with homosexuality, and I don’t think people should have to “embrace” it.

Personally, I don’t understand it either, meaning I don’t know if it is nature/nurture. Are people born that way, or do they choose it? I’m man enough to admit I don’t understand it either. I don’t think it’s “ignorant” to make that claim.

Good for Jason Collins for coming out, but does it really need/deserve all this attention? To me, it seems that the gay community makes a much bigger deal of it than anyone else. I don’t understand why they feel the need to lead with their sexuality. I don’t care what people do in the privacy of their own homes, but stop trying to force it down my throat that it’s right.

“Hey world, Big J is straight.” Who cares? Enough of the announcements already….
