RGIII for President/Pope/Anything

As if I couldn't like him any more... (via Outsports)
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.
He's one of the very few NFL players I've spoken to who has had a teammate he knew was gay. He told me:
"When he came out, he stopped playing," Griffin said. "He might have stopped playing because of the negative feedback he might have gotten from being that on the football team. So, I think that's probably why he ended up quitting."
As we saw with President Obama's annoucment, statements like this have a HUGE impact on how plenty of people look at these issues. Hard to think of someone more well liked than RGIII, so him saying this is really meaningful.
