"My dad is the most loving and caring person you will ever meet. He treats everyone like a human being... even if they are homosexual.

"My dad feels that being gay is a choice ... and naturally that's how things work. You cannot procreate and make a baby with two women, or two men. But at the same time, my dad is not going to judge someone for their sexual orientation."

-- Ewin Holyfield, son of retired world champion heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield, defending his dad after he made outrageously homophobic comments on the UK edition of Celebrity Big Brother. Treating gay people like human beings? Gee, thanks!
