Group Protests Giants Hiring of David Tyree Because of His Views on Gays

The one thing I can never understand about protest groups is that they protest people having a personal opinion. But, if someone would discriminate against them for their personal beliefs they would think that is wrong. I find that to be hypocritical. There is a difference between saying I hate all gays and and saying I don’t think you are born gay. One is discriminatory the other...
