Redskins QB says ‘now is the window’ for gay players in NFL

In an interview with GQ, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, a devout Christian, says the time is right for gay football players to come out of the closet. (There are no openly gay players in the NFL.) Griffin’s comment:

“Yeah, man. 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.”
