Charisma Magazine: 'Gay NFL Players Should Stay in the Closet'

| by Michael Allen

Jennifer LeClaire, the news editor of the religious publication Charisma Magazine, recently wrote an editorial entitled "Why Gay NFL Players Should Stay in the Closet."

In her article, LeClaire (pictured) warned that the gay agenda “may soon enough seep into Sunday afternoon football” because “CBS is reporting that a gay NFL player may soon come out of the closet, which would stir up post-season drama in more ways than one.”

On her website, LeClair claims to have  a "prophetic ministry." She also recalls her failed marriage to a Mormon man, time in jail and being blackmailed by her maid.

LeClaire wrote in Charisma Magazine:

When I was a kid, watching football on Sunday afternoons was a family tradition for many people in my neighborhood. Now, the gay agenda is finding its way into family life—from marriage (and divorce) to adoption—and may soon enough seep into Sunday afternoon football.

...According to Fox News, “Hours after [Brendon] Ayanbadejo’s team beat the New England Patriots on Sunday, paving their way to football’s biggest game, the three-time Pro Bowl special teams player wrote an email to gay marriage proponents asking how he could use his time in the limelight [to] support the cause.”

In his email he asked, “Is there anything I can do for marriage equality or anti-bullying over the next couple of weeks to harness this Super Bowl media?”

Ayanbadejo’s email stirred headlines, but not as many as San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver expressing his views on gay players in the NFL during a one-minute, recorded interview with comedian Artie Lange. Culliver said, “I don’t do the gay guys, man. I don’t do that. Ain’t got no gay people on the team. They gotta get up outta here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff.”


Culliver later backpedaled, but that’s not where it ends. Now, CBS is reporting that a gay NFL player may soon come out of the closet, which would stir up post-season drama in more ways than one.

...In an age of openly gay clergy preaching the gospel, it wouldn’t be nearly as shocking to see a muscle-bound NFL pro doing a wacky dance after scoring a touchdown. But you can bet whoever comes out first will be the poster child for the radical gay agenda’s campaigns as they seek to make all things LGBT mainstream in a nation under God that’s divided on gay marriage.

Where will the gay agenda go next to recruit kids who are confused about their sexual identity? How should the church respond to youth who need to know who they are in Christ so they can avoid the eternal consequences of homosexual sin?
