    I'd expect 23-year-olds making $600,000 a year to get in more trouble than they do, to be honest.

    What would Christ do?
    Saying sin is wrong is not condemning people. So please get a better argument.

    As for what Christ would do, read Revelation chapter 2 to see how he judges sexual immorality.

    For a book that touts itself as being righteous it sure does like talking about sodomy a lot.
    And who are you that I should listen to your folly?

    Spare me the nonsense from your book of fictional fairy tales.Even the founding fathers were smart enough to leave God out of the constitution.
    There's another one of your fairy tales.

    The Constitution is dated in “the year of our Lord," 1787.

    Which is the English way of saying "A.D." If that's all you got, you don't have much.

    Homosexuality is more than just "his sex life." When people boil the whole concept of love, attraction and commitment down to "his sex life," then all it proves is they truly don't understand anything about the subject.

    Just an observation, not a criticism.
    Sam wasn't even the best defensive end in the SEC. Jadeveon Clowney was, the number 1 pick in the draft.
