Dianna Hobbs on How Christians Should Respond to the NFL’s First Openly Homosexual Player

In response to the Rams’ decision to draft Missouri linebacker Michael Sam, the first openly gay player into the NFL, President Barack Obama sent out a congratulatory message.

“The President congratulates Michael Sam, the Rams and the NFL for taking an important step forward in our Nation’s journey,” the White House said in a statement.

“From the playing field to the corporate boardroom, LGBT Americans prove every day that you should be judged by what you do and not who you are.”

Individuals, whatever their sexual orientation, must be allowed to work to support themselves and have freedom to live life as they choose.

Hey, we’ve all got to eat.

Yet, we don’t need to go as far as celebrating someone being gay when it is not supported by Scripture, our ultimate roadmap for life.

Now, depending upon who reads this post, I will be cast as a bigoted, close-minded hatemonger. I’m okay with that, even though it’s not true.

I simply do not endorse that lifestyle.

Not endorsing a behavior, however, does not mean going on hate-filled tirades and attacking others. That is not being Christlike. At the same time, celebrating choices that go against God’s standards of living is not Christlike either.


In response to news of his new job, Sam posted an image of himself kissing his boyfriend on Twitter, which created quite the stir. There were numerous comments—some condemning, some affirming.

As anti-biblical lifestyle choices are normalized in mainstream media, if something does not gel with the word of God, no matter who applauds it, we must not weaken our stance.

Deviant sexual behavior, whether it is heterosexual or homosexual fornication or adultery, is sinful according to God’s word.

My dear A-listers, be sure to take your cues from the word and not the world.
