NFL quarterback Kirk Cousins accepts gay ‘sin’ if it can help him win

Kirk Cousins, quarterback for the Washington Redskins, was at NorthPointe High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he shared how he could look past a gay player’s “sin” if he could “help us win.”

“So from a football standpoint, if the guy can help us win, come help us win,” Cousins told an assembly of students and parents. “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. 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.”

Here’s to hoping that before Kirk shows any of his teammates what it means to follow Jesus, he figures it out for himself.
