Saturday's the night (8/13).
Daniel Murphy is going to hate it. Topped off by the ceremonial first pitcher - Major League Baseball’s vice president for social responsibility and inclusion Billy Beane.
You see - Murph 'disagrees' 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."
Alrighty then. All made all the more complicated as Beane reportedly is a stage 4 critical douche.
