Redskins Quarterback Says He Would Try to Help Potential Gay Teammate Find Jesus
The Christian Post ^ | March 6, 2014 | Morgan Lee , Christian Post Reporter

Washington Redskins backup quarterback Kirk Cousins told NorthPointe High School in Grand Rapids last Friday that if he ever had an openly gay teammate, he would welcome him on the team and try to help him find Christ.

...

"Now, there are a lot of teammates in my locker room right now who may not have a homosexual lifestyle, but they have sins, too. They're not perfect. So I don't say they can't help us win. Nobody's perfect," he said. "To that degree, we'd welcome him into our locker room and say come help us win, and hopefully I can love him like Jesus and hopefully show him what it means to follow Jesus."

Not all members of the Washington football team would be comfortable with a gay man on the team, some players anonymously told CBS D.C.

"I think some guys would kind of shy away from him a little bit… maybe three or four guys," the anonymous player said. "But for the most part he'd be accepted."

Another player said that despite what his teammates might say to the media, it may not be reflective of their actual sentiments and feelings.

With the barrage of negative stories coming out, I thought a more positive one was due.

Amen. I greatly admire Cousins for doing this.

I hope he knows he has just short-circuited his NFL career. He is headed for the sidelines next to Tim Tebow.

OK, so he finds Jesus... what happens to his gayness after that?

Kirk Cousins is a Profile in Courage.

I also believe that RG3 would say the same thing. I hope he has Kirk's back on this because the NFL/Media industrial complex will be shamelessly brutal.

Here is the Daily Mail article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2574427/Nobodys-perfect-Christian-Redskins-player-says-hed-welcome-gay-player-team-makes-homophobic-slip.html

I really like the Christian Post but for some reason, it seems to tax my computer quite a bit, making it noisy, fan turns on real high.

G’bye Kirk Cousins...We hardly knew ya.......

He may, just may get a pass(NAH) on the ‘convert the homo’ (Are you sure which ‘team’ he plays for) but to state there MAY be sinners in his locker room will get him bashed for sure.

Red(POTATO)skins will probably keep him long enough to be used as a ‘tackling dummy’ (See how long you last while I miss blocks Fool)then he will get ‘shunned’ by the league.

In the immortal words of G (Arnold) Coleman

“WHATCHEW TALKIN’ ‘BOUT WILLIS?”

Talk about your ‘Kiss of Death’.

Hopefully the same thing that happens to his lust, greed, anger, and other sins. New life begins as a follower of Christ.

Yep. I’m a die-hard Cowboys fan, but I find myself rooting for RGIII.

Oh, boy. The leftards are bound to find this even more offensive than the name of the team Cousins plays for.

Oops. Without looking at who it was I assumed (stupid) that it was RGIII they were talking about. Wow! Two Christian QBs. Watch out Skins. You have a target on your back now.

Jesus shows the unsaved gay player that the new life He wants to give him is not gay. That’s the way it works. It’s not a mended life...it’s a new life. And it starts with meeting Jesus, GO KIRK COUSINS, That is an AWESOME presentation of the Gospel. 2 Corinthians 5:17 If any man is in Christ, there is a new creation. The old things have passed away, behold all things are become new.

Missouri ? He’s not from there. He’s also only 25. You have to be 30 to run for the Senate.
