    Michael Sam to be first openly gay player in the NFL

    Sam stated publicly what his teammates and coaches at Mizzou have known since August: "I am an openly, proud gay man."
    . . .

    Asked what that moment felt like, Sam said, "I was kind of scared, even though they already knew. Just to see their reaction was awesome. They supported me from Day One. I couldn't have better teammates. ... I'm telling you what: I wouldn't have the strength to do this today if I didn't know how much support they'd given me this past semester."

    Hopefully the NFL will be as supportive as his Missouri teammates and coaches were. Happy for Sam.

    kids gunna make millions in marketing in the next 12 months, nice perk


    Excuse me if I don't give a damn about his sexuality beyond that. Apparently he was a mid round pick this morning and im sure he still is tonight. I got sick of the media obsessed gay nfl story many years ago, they want views they don't actual ly care.

    This is nothing to be "proud" about. God considers homosexuality an abomination.

    Therefore, people should pray for this person. I hope he repents and has a successful and godly life.

    Wow . . . I had hoped for better.

    You all do realize that there are gay players in the NFL today, who are just afraid to come out. If the league treats him as well as his teammates at Missouri, this could open doors.

    But have fun praying.

    I hope he ignores nonsense like this and has a successful football career.

    Not exactly. Jesus actually never condemned anyone except those condemning others in God's name (Pharisees & Sadduccees). Both of y'all need to read your Bibles a bit more as we are ALL sinners and fall short of the glory of God. I have to stand before God just like this kid does and just like you do. We have no business condemning anyone.

    I was being sarcastic, i've read the bible cover to cover. Don't agree with a majority of it, especially the old testament but that's another discussion for another time.
