Former Vikings punter says he lost job due to stance on gay marriage

Shayn Roby’s Take: Saying ‘We should round up all the gays, send them to an island, and then nuke it until it glows.’ is an over the top statement if one is truly seeking to exemplify the love of Christ toward those that are lost. However, there’s absolutely no doubt about whether those insisting on continuing to live a homosexual lifestyle are intentionally defiant toward what God’s Holy Word tells us or not. If Chris Kluwe is being truthful about the comment Mike Priefer allegedly made about sending all the gays to an island and nuking it, then indeed the special teams coach is mean-spirited. However, Kluwe is still missing an important point. He (Kluwe) reports that Priefer said that the only Truth is Jesus Christ. Because the eternal fate of all sinners who do not acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ will be that of eternal damnation in the lake of fire and infinite separation from God, that particular part of what Kluwe refers to as ‘intolerance’ is actually the exercise of religious freedom and an actual mandate from the Son of God to perform. The key is that such a conversation needs to be one that is delivered with wisdom and at a point where it does not appear to come from a position of ridicule and harassment, but out of a general concern for the death and pain that a sinful life causes. That means this conversation should have taken place in a situation where it was a one on one discussion rather than a public debate that may have been directly targeted at Kluwe. As far is ‘tolerance’ is concerned, Jesus told the prostitute to “Go and sin no more.” He DID NOT say, “Hang loose sister and swing low. Now go turn tricks and have an orgy to your heart’s desire.”

In an article posted to Deadspin entitled “I Was An NFL Player Until I Was Fired By Two Cowards And A Bigot,” former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe alleges that he lost his job as Vikings punter because of his public support of gay marriage.

The article looks back at Kluwe’s 2012 season and alleged interactions he had with former head coach Leslie Frazier, general manager Rick Spielman, and special-teams coordinator Mike Priefer. Kluwe writes that Frazier and Spielman (the “cowards” from the article’s title) were made uncomfortable by his public support of gay marriage. Kluwe also states that Priefer, who Kluwe refers to as the “bigot,” was openly hostile to Kluwe about his support of gay rights, and Kluwe says he believes Priefer was the one directly responsible for him losing his job.

Kluwe says he is writing the article now to “make sure that Mike Priefer never holds…
