NFL quarterback would show gay teammate 'what it means to follow Jesus' Published: March 5, 2014

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins says he'd welcome an openly gay teammate, but a number of media outlets are questioning the sincerity of his remarks.

"From a football standpoint, if the guy can help us win, come help us win," Cousins, who is a devout Christian, is quoted by MLive as saying during an appearance at Michigan's NorthPointe High School. "Now, there are a lot of teammates in my locker room right now who may not have a homosexual lifestyle, but they have sins, too. They’re not perfect. So I don’t say they can’t help us win. Nobody’s perfect.“

He then added: "To that degree, we'd welcome him into our locker room and say come help us win, and hopefully I can love him like Jesus and hopefully show him what it means to follow Jesus."
