What is a Christian LGBT advocate who does soft porn photos for gay men?!?! Why is his spiritual daddy always silent on these issues? Where does the buck stop? Where is this heading?! This is the END! -Bobby Carter  Matthew 7:15-20 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Irvin publicly acknowledges that the impetus for taking a stand comes from his relationship with his gay brother, Vaughn, who died of stomach cancer in 2006. Irvin had not spoken publicly about his brother previously, according to the magazine.

In the article, Irvin describes how his brother’s sexual orientation contributed to his own issues.

He says that he found out his brother was gay in the late 1970s, when he found Vaughn wearing women’s clothing. Michael Irvin was rattled by the experience and has figured out since that it contributed to his own womanizing behavior. Working with a Dallas area bishop, T.D. Jakes, Irvin looked at the past

“And through it all we realized maybe some of the issues I’ve had with so many women, just bringing women around so everybody can see, maybe that’s the residual of the fear I had that if my brother is wearing ladies’ clothes, am I going to be doing that? Is it genetic?” Irvin said to Out. “I’m certainly not making excuses for my bad decisions. But I had to dive inside of me to find out why am I making these decisions, and that came up.”

Irvin says that his father, Walter, helped him learn a tolerant form of Christianity because the elder Irvin accepted his gay son and encouraged him to love his brother unconditionally.

Irvin now believes the African-American community should support marriage equality.

“I don’t see how any African-American, with any inkling of history, can say that you don’t have the right to live your life how you want to live your life,” he said, according to the magazine. “No one should be telling you who you should love, no one should be telling you who you should be spending the rest of your life with. When we start talking about equality, and everybody being treated equally, I don’t want to know an African-American who will say everybody doesn’t deserve equality.”

The Hall of Fame wide receiver believes that this work matters more than his football career.

“The last thing I want is to go to God and have him ask, ‘What did you do?’ And I talk about winning Super Bowls and national titles,” Irvin said, according to Out. “I didn’t do anything to make it a better world before I left? All I got is Super Bowls? That would be scary.”

Irvin would support any athlete who wants to come out.

“If anyone comes out in those top four major sports, I will absolutely support him. … When a guy steps up and says, ‘This is who I am,’ I guarantee you I’ll give him 100 percent support,” Irvin said.

And if the player produced on the field, he would have supported a gay teammate as well. Winning was paramount.

“I believe, if a teammate had said he’s gay, we would have integrated him and kept moving because of the closeness,” Irvin said, according to the magazine.

He believes the team that won three Super Bowls could have integrated an openly gay teammate as well as any team.

“We had a bunch of different characters on that team,” Irvin said. “Deion [Sanders] and Emmitt [Smith]. I believe that team would have handled it well.”

Michael Irvin has been setting the stage for this moment. Years ago he had hosted an LGBT friendly sports radio show. Check it out:

The Michael Irvin Show moves to Miami

Jul 20th, 2010

by Cyd Zeigler jr..

One of the gay-friendliest shows on sports radio is back, as The Michael Irvin Show starts Monday, July 26, on Miami’s 560 WQAM. The show will run noon-3pmET. The show will stream online at WQAM.com. Irvin spent his college career wearing No. 47 for the University of Miami.

We’re working out the details, but it looks like I’ll again have a weekly segment talking about the latest in sports news (gay and otherwise) on Wednesdays at 2pmET…starting with updates on the Gay Games from Germany. I’ve been doing shows with Irvin’s partner, Kevin Kiley, for years in the Midwest, Los Angeles, Dallas and now Miami. The first time I’m on the show always draws out “why are you having a fag on your show” calls. Even in L.A. Looking forward to seeing the first reaction of South Florida residents.

And on a personal note, I’m really happy for Michael and Kevin. They got a bum rap from the ESPN Radio people in Dallas, who canned the show after Michael was unjustly accused of rape days before the Super Bowl in Miami. Here’s hoping it’s a huge success for them.
