Detroit Tigers right fielder Torri Hunter has told the Los Angeles Times he believes an out gay teammate would make him “uncomfortable”

“For me, as a Christian…I will be uncomfortable because in all my teachings and all my learning, biblically, says it’s not right.  It will be difficult and uncomfortable.”

Hunter a four-time All-Star and a 9-time Gold Glove winner’s  17-year-old son was arrested in Texas in may on charges of sexual abuse of a 16 year old girl who later recanted her story.

There’s been no word from any of Hunter’s Detroit Tigers teammates if being on a team with a homophobic bigot makes them uncomfortable.

    Yet another weak and febile minded individual who can’t think for himself but can only regurgitate what others tell him to believe. What a let down.
