There are no openly gay players in the NFL. Minn. Vikings punter Chris Kluwe talks about why that is and when it might change. Kluwe says he believes some players are not open about their sexuality because, “the window of opportunity to play is so short that you don’t want to risk any sort of distraction that can keep you from keeping that job.”

Got news for you Joe. Homosexuality is not a temptation. People are born this way and there is nothing you or any other fool can say to change that. BTW, homosexuals are God's people also in case you forgot...he loves us all.
Hate to break it to Kluwe of the NFL, but life isn't fair. Never has been. Oh, & BTW, homosexuality is a temptation, which if acted upon, creates further separation from God. Though one can't pick & choose which temptations one has, everyone has them. But people don't have to know what other people's temptations are. It's nobody's business. So maybe that's why it's OK that there are no openly gay players. And even if one doesn't agree that homosexual attraction that results in a sexual act is not God's will, it still isn't necessary to declare one's sexual preference. What does playing in the NFL have to do with having to know a player's sexual preference? Nothing. It's still nobody's business.
