The Wrong Decision
Recently, a very tall, black, talented football player finished his playing days at the university he was attending. He made it well known that the wanted to be selected by one of the National Football League (NFL) teams. It seemed like clear sailing ahead until he opened his mouth and put feet in it.
Several days later he told his father he was GAY. His father was not prepared for the message he received from his son. His father has not been emotionally together since those moments, and soon the rumor began to circulate.
The very tall, black, very talented football player had no choice. He had to out himself, and since he did that, the NFL and the rest of the football word has not been together either. It was a bombshell revelation.
Quickly, the sport talk media made it a major issue, and the place the tall, black, very talented player had at the top of the NFL draft list vanished. Since the revelation, his place on the NFL list is near the bottom.
The sport talk media made it very clear about homosexual behavior that it does not belong in an culture at any time, and that it can never be acceptable on any or female sport’s team. It was made abundantly clear that people are gay because they choose to be gay, that God has never deliberately created a gay person, that God outlaws gay behavior, and that in the Bible there are references the make it clear homosexuality is grievously sinful. The talk shows also made it very clear that sex was created by God to be between a man and woman so that the human race can increase and multiply. Homosexual sex violates God’s plan for sexual behavior.
Concerning matters of common sense, no athlete (man or woman) has any place in a team locker where the athlete goes about business in a state of partial or complete undress. So, the very tall, black, very talented football player who recently told his father and the word that he chose to be gay should never be drafted or be seen in an all male team locker room. A heterosexual male team player cannot be seen in an all female locker room, so a gay male team player cannot be seen or part of an all male locker room. It’s a matter of common sense. What it narrows down to is the tall, black, talented football player made the very wrong choice to be gay and that no exception should be made. He has to live with grievously sinful mistake. That is the way the ball bounces. (No pun is intended.)
