It's really odd that some people think some people should be praised or despised for being gay, but gay is how gays were born. If someone robs a bank, does it matter if they are gay? If someone saves a person's life, does it matter if the hero was gay?<quoted text>
Who praised Sam for being gay? Who are they Rogue?
In today's NFL full of pass-happy offenses and hybrid defensive fronts, football reasons alone can't justify why an award-winning pass-rusher like Sam fell so far in the draft. Playing in the toughest conference in college football, Sam was an anchor on a Missouri defensive line that helped propel the Tigers to a Cotton Bowl victory and the SEC East title. He posted more sacks in 2013 than No. 1 overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney, was a first-team all-American and won the SEC defensive player of the year award
Sounds to me like Sam's praise came from putting in work.
The sad truth is most conservative and fundamentalist Christians think gayness is abhorrent to their God, because a "holy book" written thousands of years ago says so. They don't understand the role of ancient culture that shapes their current beliefs. Just like the Muslims in Afghanistan, who believe a man must have a beard and wear a turbine. That's cultural, based on old practices that somehow became "moral". Those beliefs originated in the culture that was extant at the time their religion arose. Same with rules of some religions against eating pork. Thousands of years ago they didn't have meat thermometers and didn't understand that pork is safe if cooked to 145 F. So they made rules that pork was "unclean" (Jewish) or not halal (Muslim).
At least 90% of religion is superstition. 9.9% is speculation. 0.1% is based on uncertainty.
