Homophobe Daniel Murphy is not going to like what the Mets are doing

Last year then Mets 2B Daniel Murphy 'disagreed' with the homosexual 'lifestyle.'

“I do disagree with the fact that [gay ex-player and MLB ambassador] Billy [Beane] is a homosexual. That doesn't mean I can't still invest in him and get to know him. I don't think the fact that someone is a homosexual should completely shut the door on investing in them in a relational aspect...Getting to know him. That, I would say, you can still accept them but I do disagree with the lifestyle, 100%."

Pushed by the News on asswipe's lifestyle assertion, Murphy replied, “You and I have a disagreement." “That’s why we’re having a conversation right now. And I completely understand why someone who believes it is not a choice, that you’re born with it, would take issue with my beliefs, that it is a lifestyle.”

“One thing that gets caught up a little bit when it comes to believers in Christ is that always, we’re condemning,” Murphy says. ‘We condemn homosexuals...’God hates this,’ or ‘God hates that.’ God doesn’t hate people. He loves them. Jesus loves them.”

And? Murphy doesn't care.

“You gotta write what you gotta write,” Murphy says. “Whatever you write, I’m still going to believe what I’m going to believe tomorrow. I don’t think either one of us got on the phone thinking we would convince you of the other side."

Murphy, dumped by the Mets this offseason, will miss the team hosting a LGBT Pride Night at Citi Field. The first such night hosted by a major NY sports team.

The Mets will unveil details (including the date) at a press conference Tuesday, with Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, Rep. Steve Israel and LGBT Network CEO David Kilmnick.

“I’m proud to be making this announcement — one, as a lifelong Met fan, and two, we get to beat the Yankees on this,” Kilmnick joked to us.

He added that the team’s “making sure that everyone is welcomed and celebrated at Citi Field.”

Over 5,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender fans are expected at Pride Night, he said, and a portion of all ticket sales will go the LGBT Network’s anti-bullying programs.
