Torii Kedar Hunter, right fielder for the Detroit Tigers, says he was misquoted and is not anti-gay.

Citing his religious faith, Hunter, a 37-year-old four-time All-Star, told The Los Angeles Times that playing alongside an openly gay player would be difficult to deal with.

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

Hunter, who resides during the off-season in a suburb of Dallas-Fort Worth, added that an out teammate could divide the team.

On Monday, Hunter messaged on Twitter that the Times had misrepresented him.

“I'm very disappointed in Kevin Baxter's article in which my quotes and feelings have been misrepresented,” Hunter said. “He took two completely separate quotes and made them into one quote that does not express how I feel as a Christian or a human being. I have love and respect for all human beings regardless of race, color or sexual orientation. I am not perfect and try hard to live the best life I can and treat all people with respect. If you know me you know that I am not anti anything and to be portrayed as anti-gay in this article is hurtful and just not true.”

“Don't believe everything u read,” he added in a separate tweet. “Misleading and way out of context.”
