(NNPA)–Michael Sam, the All-American defensive end for the University of Missouri, is making more news off the field than on. According to Sports Illustrated, “Sam came out to his Missouri teammates last August. Coaches and classmates also knew he was gay well before today. Multiple sources have told SI that Sam strongly considered making an announcement late last summer and was willing to play his senior season as an openly homosexual athlete. (He decided against it at the last minute.).”
Wow! Stop the presses! This is earth-shattering news! Or, so people will tell you.
People have lost their minds over this issue. Let a heterosexual go to his job and tell co-workers that he likes women and he will be reprimanded by the human resources department (HR) or even fired. But if you announce that you are homosexual, you get statements from Obama, Michelle, Pelosi, Sharpton, and Jesse.
All because Sam MAY be the first known homosexual to be drafted by a professional sports team. Pro-homosexuals have used adjectives like historic and courageous to describe Sam. Of course, he is neither.
