Currently ranked middle of the second round

 

Not by anyone I have seen.  Mostly 4th or 5th.

Because it is big news, that's why it is being covered. It's probably the most important story regarding the NFL because of the social prominence. Michael Sam coming out will give the public an insight as to just how homophobic the NFL still is. If he falls way short of where he should be drafted, and there aren't any primary concerns like injury, the collective league will be under scrutiny, possibly changing the entire locker room culture.

 

I gree with you that this is what will be watched.  The issue will be where people think he will be drafted. 

 

Some on here are already saying he should be a pretty high pick because he was the Co Def Player of the year.  But, everything i have read was putting him as the 15-16th rated DE....a late round pick.

Where did you see that.

 

I heard (right before the interview with him), that most experts had him as the 15-16th rated DE....that is a lower round pick.  Not 2nd round.

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=96267&draftyear=2014&genpos=DE  3-4th round pick 11th rated DE. 

 

 

http://walterfootball.com/draft2014DE.php 3-5th round pick 15th rated DE. 

 

 

 

He was a third round pick before he started to fall in the last week before the announcement.  I'd probably say he's a 3-4th round pick right now based on all the current projections.

People who wish/think this shouldn't be a big story or important are misguided. It has to be a big deal today if it's going to be no big deal tomorrow.

It was a big deal when limburgh flew across the Atlantic, but now thousands of people do it every day.

If it is biological then having a brain that mutated would explain what you are talking about.  There is a disorder and when I say dis I mean out of the ordinary.  The average person isn't gay just like the average person doesn't have 2 thumbs, so if being gay is a disorder than that person has a mental or hormonal imbalances.  If it's mental then test needs to be done to figure out how to tell the signs at birth so parents will know how to give their children the right treatment to cure the mental imbalance.

 

However if it is hormonal then there can be testoterone and estrogen shots that can be given to bring that balance back in place.  If it's neither then it is a lifestyle and choice and they will they chose to carry on with daily life.

 

Let me be the first (as far as I've read) to say this ... you are a full-of-poo idiot.

What is old is new again

ROMANS 1

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Okay, listen. We're all glad you like a book. But you can't expect people to live their lives based on the teaching of a book meant for people who thought the world was flat, selling relatives was cool, slavery was okay, bushes talk, oceans part, and people who have grow two different crops on the same plot of land should be stoned to death.

 

We're living in a different time. We are different people. We know infinitely more than we as a species knew then. To try to force modern human beings to adhere to the teachings of the Bible as literally as you would have them, it literally trying to jam a square peg in a round hole.

 

So please, keep the Bible out of this discussion. You may as well quote sci-fi novels. They are equally relevant to contemporary society as that passage.

“At the end of the day, we’re football players focused on winning games, so conceivably my sexual orientation won’t be a distraction to a group of oversized men essentially paid to violently express their anger on a daily basis and whose physical aggression toward others pretty much defines who they are as human beings.

Interesting....did not see that.

 

I was just basing my comment on what they said during the airing of the interview.
