Christians who freaked out when Cowboys signed Michael Sam noticeably silent when they sign an actual criminal.

When the Dallas Cowboys signed openly gay NFL rookie Michael Sam to their practice squad, many Christians (including NFL players) publicly and loudly lost their shit (including protests against the Cowboys).  In an effort expose the hysteria and moral confusion with which Christianity seems to imbue people, I want to introduce you to Josh Brent, [Read More...]

Chaplain for Sooners’ football team lured man from home in order to steal his drugs.

Being the chaplain for a college football team is tough work.  There’s all the proselytizing to athletes, the praying to Jesus, the telling people that Christianity is required for morality.  In the case of Kent Bowles, the chaplain for the Oklahoma Sooners’ football team (do they have separate chaplains for different sports?  God damn, Oklahoma), [Read More...]

Michael Sam’s jersey is the second highest-selling rookie jersey.

I cannot type the word “Michael” because I’m engaged to a woman named Michaelyn.  Even when typing that last sentence I initially typed “Michaely” before back-spacing. Anyway, Michael (not Michaely) Sam’s jersey is the second highest-selling jersey among draftees at the moment: Outsports reported jerseys for Sam, who was the draft’s 249th pick, are currently second in [Read More...]
