NFL 8th Round Pick Overshadows Draft
Michael Sam was draft pick number 249 by the St. Louis Ram on Saturday May 10th 2014, becoming the first openly gay football player to be drafted into the NFL. He was personally congratulated by the President of the United States, President Obama.
I think by Michael Sam admitting to his sexual orientation publicly prior to the NFL draft, brought on to himself a great opportunity, because of all the media attention he attracted to himself. Everything he does from here on will be watched by the media and transmitted to the world by the media.
I watched him speak on CNN at a press conference. He was well spoken as if this was already written in screenplay. It was like if this was well planned by him and his associates and he is playing his cards very well so far.
I noticed nothing feminine about him, but it is obvious at first sight that his boyfriend is probably gay. His boyfriend has the character of the type of person promoted by the LBG community as being born with a predisposition for homosexuality. Not so for Michael Sam! His character is that of being without love or family support, decisions made to survive and eat and basically a preferred lifestyle, but hardly a predisposition. And he simply decided to cash in on it. It seems he feels he should get paid for doing what he enjoys. So things will happen in his favor unless he slips on a banana peel or something vengeful happens on the football field, because his game plan is well mapped out and he now has the right people supporting whatever he does from now on as a role model of 21st century America. Which he seems to feel is secondary as he said, he couldn’t do anything about the many homosexual discrimination practices. It is not his current agenda.
I think Michael Sam has a great opportunity to do something good for himself, from advertisement endorsements to his own reality television show, which is already happening to him without pay by the news media like CNN. Because now people want to know about him and his personal life because he opened the doors for the world to observe and judge him as a homosexual person and not an necessarily as an athlete. However his success on the field would help him a lot.
While he claims he only wants to be judged by his performance on the football field, he kissed his lover in front of the camera for all the world to see, which had nothing to do with his athletic performances. But to change the way we view sexuality in American media. It worked! It seems the only thing being offered by him to judge is his sexuality and well mannered character. Therefore he has to get paid. Well planned! This is what the LBG community needs to advance their causes and agendas.
My concern isn’t so much Michael Sam and his sexual orientation, but the way it is being played out on the media and the agenda behind those promoting this reality programming being tuned into before all of America ad the world. My concern is how it effects the many people who still find themselves to be intolerant to what is going on and must happen and is losing their faith in God, not because they do not believe in God, but because they are full of anger and hatred, which no place for God to enter. Thereby the person actually being injured is not the person who they see as living in sin and supposedly condemned, but themselves because hatred is like a drunk and it will destroy you and you are God’s temple and if you destroy it, he will destroy you.
As for Michael Sam, who I believe wrote this script, will have to now play it out. To do such a thing he had to be an opportunist. Most opportunist are not influenced by external causes such as LBG Rights, but only takes advantage of them for their own personal agenda. All I can say is to those you say they are of God, learn to love all people and has no anger or hatred against anyone. We must have faith in God. We do not know who is behind him or his purpose, but time will tell.
What do we know?
A man with a troubled past from large and poor family, whereby 3 of his siblings are in prison and 3 of them got killed, was disowned by his father and found a family outside of his bloodline. He completes college a first in his family and makes it to the NFL draft.
He is in a homosexual relationship at 6′ 2″ and 256 LBS at age 24, with a feminine type mate as he plays the male rule so it seems. He exposed his sexual orientation to the world prior to the 2014 NFL draft and captured the attention of all of America with direct recognition by our President Barack Obama. How many young black men did this in prison at age 24, due to long prison sentences? This hardly made them spokesman for the LBG community. But he will get $20 Million or more and all they got was felony conviction.
So I close with this:
A man who was said to be condemned due to his homosexual practices came to the rescue of a stranger, he did not know. While a man who claimed he was born again in Christ lied on this same name man causing the need for him to be rescued. This stranger was the Son of Man. For this reason I tell you no man is condemned as long as he still has the breath of life and certainly no man is saved just because he proclaims to be of God in the name of Jesus Christ. This give to an understanding of these teachings out of the bible.
Read Ephesians 2: 1-10 We were all made alive thru Christ.
3All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh a and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath
4But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.
10For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
It is our duty to God to love all of mankind, not allowing foolish anger and hatred to influence our lives in any way and thereby truly having faith in God that he will prevail.
