Chris Culliver

Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco is going to Disney World, but San Francisco 49ers linebacker Chris Culliver is heading to reeducation camp.

Culliver last week said he wouldn’t want to have any gay teammates. Then came what today is the inevitable: Public apology, sit-down with journalists, and volunteering to work at a pro-homosexuality charity—in this case, The Trevor Project.


(The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth.  The Trevor Project is a Champion of Change, an honor presented by the White House for  “innovative work to save the lives” of LGBTQ young people.)

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9–11, NIV)

Organizations like The Trevor Project  might help to prevent suicide, but it does nothing to provide life. Christ Jesus said,

“I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die.  Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26)

  1. You’re going to find that queerfolk are going to be hard pressed to talking about Jesus Christ and Christianity given that many of us are routinely beaten with a Bible for being homosexual. While it took me years to see Christianity as benevolent, I have far too many memories of just how hateful Christians can be for someone like me being different.

    I think perhaps a little less religion and a little more benevolence is required. No?

    • You’re right. Look at orher posts on my page regarding the same issue. In the end gays and other sins (gossips and slanderers) all fall in the same category: sinners who need salvation from Christ who gave his life as a ransom. I am included because of His saving love. That’s what I want to get accross in the hope that someone else would find salvation too. And I do so not to condemn, but to point to real hope.
