And the Lord said unto his flock in Washington, “Take this young man, this impossibly gifted quarterback, and watch him hoist your moribund franchise upon his shoulders and into the playoffs.” And lo, it was good. Sweet Jesus, was it good. And then RG3’s greedy head coach ran him into the ground and blew out his knee. But now the young quarterback has returned, and his followers are ready to rejoice again. But lo, they’re terrified. Sweet Jesus, are they terrified. It’s the blessing and the curse of Robert Griffin III, the joy that could turn to agony at any moment. People, can we get an amen?
Dan Snyder has said the Redskins will not change their name and both he and Goodell did not show up to the meeting with the Oneida Leaders the other day. What do you think the Redskins should do about their nickname and the issue surrounding it?
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. 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.
