RG3: Gay players should come out [NFL pro-sodomite QB claims to be Christian, but....]
Fox Sports ^ | 8/14/13

Posted on 08/14/2013 7:02:28 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Robert Griffin III thinks the time is now for gay players to come out.

The Redskins star quarterback told GQ magazine that he feels the "window is now" for gay players.

"I think there are [gay players] right now, and if they're looking for a window to just come out, I mean, now is the window," said Griffin, who is recovering from offseason knee surgery. "My view on it is, yes, I am a Christian, but to each his own. You do what you want to do. If some Christians want to look at being gay as a sin, then thinking about other women, committing adultery—or any of those other sins that are in the Bible—those are sins, too. And God looks at all of us the same way."

Hey RG 3, bestiality is also forbidden in Christianity, but hey, let's embrace them too....after all, we are all sinners, right? And pedophiles, rapists, exhibitionists, thieves, abusers....all of us sin, so let's CELEBRATE that sin, instead of being ashamed of it, right, RG?

“...to each his own....”

What a moronic response to sin.

Wow, now I can say “My gay drugged felon jock is more talented than your gay drugged felon jock” rather than just “My drugged felon jock is more talented than your drugged felon jock.”

A Christian who encourages his brethren to willfully turn from God in rebellion and sin, is not following the path of Christ and is woefully deceived by evil lies that currently run rampant.

Personally, I am beyond sick and tired of RG3. The media in the DMV area is turning him into a cult figure. I have heard them ask other Redskin players, “Will you be able to sleep tonight knowing that RG3 will play?” Radio and tv updates about what the man ate for breakfast and if he had a good night’s sleep is beyond disgusting. The Redskins should just be renamed the RG3”s and be done with it. As for his statement about gay NFL players... the media will report his comments as “brave”. Ugh....

Because whether or not a player is gay is relevant to football how...Are there players that also play “butt darts” when they aren’t on the field, probably — Do I need to know that enjoy football - NO!!!

Indeed...

There really is no middle ground. You cannot call yourself Christian but reject Christ to avoid the persecution that comes from following Jesus.

The battle lines are drawn and everyone chooses his side....

He isn’t embracing anybody. He is stating a fact. now probably is the best time for s pro football player to come out. RGIII didn’t say that homosexuality was acceptable. He did point out that some folks like to look at the mote in another’s eye while ignoring the stick in their own.

He plays a game. He does not make policy. He is not on the supreme court or the president. He plays a GAME.

Get over yourself

“...If some Christians want to look at being gay as a sin, then thinking about other women, committing adultery—or any of those other sins that are in the Bible—those are sins, too.”

So, because other people ‘sin’, it makes yours okay?

This is where these ‘gay-christians’ confuse me.

I am a human and am flawed with sin in my life too. Like previous posters have said, it’s something I focus on reckognizing as sin and then DEALING with it - NOT doing it any more. THAT is what Jesus of the Bible teaches.

I don’t tell the world I’m wonderful because of my sin and they need to celebrate and give me accolades for it.

You can bet if a player did come out, the NFL would issue a directive to the Referees that if they so much are hit, the opposing team should be penalized 15 yards for “Unsportsmanlike Conduct.”

Agree. I would only respond to questions that are football related. Reporters are always digging for controversy and ways to kill careers. One politically incorrect response will get you run out of the league.

the NFL should make a rule that NFL players who are giving interviews are there because of their status as an NFL player and so should only talk about NFL and football plays, tactics, experience, strategy, etc.

No personal feeling about politics or government

RG3 is not a Christian. You cannot be following Christ (who calls homosexuality an abomination) and be pro homosexuality.

That's what I read also. Did anybody here actually hear RG3 claim that homosexuality is acceptable? An acceptable sin? Not a sin? That RG3 is pro-sodomite? An advocate of homosexuality? Finds it something to be celebrated?

Found this on Google:

“The US has become a place where talentless entertainers, treasonous politicians, porn performers, criminal pro-athletes, liberal idiots/morons/traitors and lying journalists, are sadly-mistaken for people of importance.”

RGIII is a 23 year old who has apparently tried to act like a Christian as best he knows while living in a 24/7 public spotlight where every single word he utters gets dissected and twisted.

In my opinion he phrased it poorly but showed an attitude lacking in many Christians: we are all sinners and being gay doesn't make you a bigger sinner than me.

It's too bad all the perfect people here decided to bash him instead of showing some grace.

He actually makes a statement bordering on apostasy when he says: “You do what you want to do. If some Christians want to look at being gay as a sin...”

It is not a matter of Christians WANTING to view something as a sin, it is a matter of what God has said is sin - regardless of how we want to view it.

He is right, however, in pointing out some common, overlooked sins in the Christian community - but my sin does not make your sin acceptable, which is the argument he is using.

It is one thing to encourage acceptance of the sinner, a completely different thing to advocate accepting the sin.

How about he just goes one better and encourages players to just play the game they're PAID for, and STFU about their proclivities?

Do not take his words out of context. You neatly avoid his other condemnations of those that sin. You look at the mote in his eye while ignoring your own stick

Thank you. I am a Christian libertarian. Some have problems with that combination but I oppose tyranny in all its forms including gay fascism.

RG3 comments are correct in the sense that we are all born into sin and homosexuality is no better or worse than any other sin. I am a Christian and I don’t have any issue with gays coming out in sports or anywhere else. Regardless of why they come out, the knowledge of who you are dealing with is beneficial to everyone for many reasons. As a conservative/libertarian, I also believe that people have the right to live as they please without interference as long as they bring no harm to anyone else. As for the gay political agenda, that is another thing altogether. That is something I find intolerable and repugnant.

No where in RG3’s comments do I see him embracing anyone. I think he statements were inartful at best.

Yes, I find it exceedingly harmful when those who claim to be Christians encourage the public acceptance of those who celebrate sinful behavior.

I feel compelled to condemn such notions, knowing that while I am not perfect, we need not wait for perfection to call out those who are breaching biblical standards.

The current gay agenda is not “Accept me as a fallen human being”, it is a very strident “Accept me and accept my sin”. Encouraging someone to “come out” is definitely implying an acceptance of their sin.

Christians are encouraged to confess their sins to one another SO THAT WE MAY PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER and encourage each other in FORSAKING THAT SIN! There is nothing biblical about confessing sin (coming out) in order that we may be accepted FOR OUR SIN.

I have had friends come to me and confess sin in their lives that I deplore, but I love them still - and I pray for them to OVERCOME THEIR SINS, and their desire is to be free from their sin. I have gone to a Christian brother and confessed sin I am struggling with - not to get reassurance that my sin is OK, but to get help in prayer and encouragement and accountability in the struggle.

Any gay player who publicly comes forward, asking for our prayers to help him overcome his acknowledged sin, will have my prayers and my support (and brother, he will need it). Any player who comes out holding his boyfriend’s hand, asking me to accept them and their sin will not have my support - I consider them an agent of the enemy in spreading the casual acceptance of open rebellion against God.

Here's the 'problem' RGIII ....

With respect to loving the sinner and hating the sin, which it indeed is called to do, what can it say to those who, in contempt of the saints who have fled their sins, declare their persons to be inseparable from the sin, identifying themselves with it—and then blame the Church for hating them as persons?
