Catholics Tweet Their Support for Mike Sam

Michael Sam

Michael Sam’s decision to come out as a gay man, just as he is potentially drafted as the NFL’s first openly gay player, has been lauded by commentators from all corners. Column inches have been filled with discussions about homophobia in sports, and a Missouri legislator introduced anti-discrimination legislation protecting gay and lesbian people , as a response to Sam’s announcement.

Included among these congratulations have been several high profile Catholics, including tweets from Vice President Joe Biden and Jesuit Fr. James Martin which we included below:

    Michael Sam is a brave young man and an example to many young persons struggling with the question of their own coming out. It is also gratifying to see that he has some support from leaders in the Catholic faith.
