Florida State University linebacker DeMarcus Walker noticed a little something after the immediate media (and presidential) squeeing over the St. Louis Rams’ draft pick of openly gay Michael Sam.
Bingo. That tweet has been retweeted over 7,000 times and counting. Walker also tweeted out this cartoon making a Jason Collins/Tim Tebow comparison.
Other Twitter users noticed the head-shaking comparison as well.
Why are people praising Michael Sam for being gay but hated Tim Tebow for being a Christian? Our society is twisted—

Let me get this straight Tim Tebow is open about his faith & gets major backlash Michael Sam is open about his sexuality & get major praise?—

It amazes me how people praise Michael Sam for being the first openly gay NFL player. But bash Tim Tebow about being a Christian.—

It truly is ironic how Michael Sam is praised & supported for being gay and Tim Tebow hated and mocked for being Christian. What a shame.—

It sickens me that Michael Sam is praised and applauded for being Gay, but when Tebow professes the name of Christ he is kicked to the curb.—

I'm not against anyone who's gay but I don't see why its celebrated when Michael Sam says he's gay yet Tim Tebow is ridiculed for His faith.—

Ding, ding, ding!
