Tyree would trade Super Bowl catch to stop gay marriages

Last week, David Tyree warned that gay marriages would lead to anarchy in our society.

This week, the former Super Bowl hero for the New York Giants said he would trade his wild, one-handed grab on the game-winning drive of Super Bowl XLII to halt same-sex marriages. Yes, “The Catch” as it’s called wouldn’t mean as much to him as keeping marriage between one man and one woman.

There's nothing worth more than (maintaining heterosexual marriage) right here for me,” Tyree told the New York Daily News.

"Nothing means more to me than that my God would be honored," he said. "Being the fact that I firmly believe that God created and ordained marriage between a man and a woman, I believe that that's something that should be fought for at all costs."

Tyree, who found religion earlier in his career after a rough lifestyle had led him astray, suggests God helped him pin the ball against his helmet in the Super Bowl to put him in a position to send a message.

“Perhaps God orchestrated that play to give me a platform for what I'm doing here today: To urge political leaders all over our nation to reject same-sex marriage," he said. "I have no care of my image," the retired Giant said. "I'm not necessarily here to be politically correct. All of my convictions come from my faith."
