Bryan Fischer Says Michael Sam Should Seek Therapy, Compares Him to a 'Brain Concussion'

Bryan Fischer Michael Sam tweet

Because Michael Sam is young, black, and gay, the always-classy Bryan Fischer claims that Sam is the highest at-risk group for contracting HIV and that he should seek therapy

2_samFischer also called Sam "the sexual equivalent of a brain concussion."

The NFL is celebrating the sexual equivalent of a brain concussion by going gaga over Michael Sam’s sexual proclivities.
...
For a league increasingly priding itself on concern for player safety and health, it is bizarre that they are enthusiastically praising a draftee for a lifestyle that could send him to an early grave.

And, of course, no Fischer rant is complete without a double-swipe at both Obama and gays in general, lest anyone forget that he views homosexuality as an utter abomination.

So much for his love affair with black men.

St. Louis Ram Michael Sam and his boyfriend partied in Vegas at the Venetian following the NFL draft, the Las Vegas Sun reports:

Boyfriend Vito Cammisano, who swam competitively for the University of Missouri, joined Sam, a defensive end from the college who was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round Saturday and was congratulated by President Obama.

A group of 10, including Sam’s agent and friends, were on hand as Sam was surprised with a presentation from Tao and a shout-out from DJ Vice. Sam spotted Richard Sherman of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks at a nearby table, and the two athletes chatted for a few minutes.

Sam and Cammisano later headed to the DJ booth, where Vice stopped the music to introduce and congratulate the newly signed pro.

The NY Daily News has more on Cammisano:

Cammisano, a communications major, came out to fellow swimmers in 2011, Mizzou’s student newspaper reported.

“He’s been a pleasant, pleasant boy all his life,” Cammisano’s aunt, Cathy Nigro, said of her nephew.

“I was very proud of them both,” Nigro said of the kiss. “I think the whole family is.”

Nigro said she’s met Sam, liked him very much and called him “a great athlete.”

Cammisano’s Facebook page says he attended Rockhurst High School in Kansas City, Mo., and worked as an assistant in the University of Missouri’s office of disability services. It says he works as an intern at a large radio station operator.

Miami Dolphins defensive back Don Jones, who tweeted "OMG" and "Horrible" in reaction to Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams, apologized to Sam and the Dolphins on Sunday night, and was suspended and fined by the team, CBS Sports reports.

Said Jones in a statement:

"I want to apologize to Michael Sam for the inappropriate comments that I made last night on social media. I take full responsibility for them and I regret that these tweets took away from his draft moment. I remember last year when I was drafted in the seventh round and all of the emotions and happiness I felt when I received the call that gave me an opportunity to play for an NFL team and I wish him all the best in his NFL career...I sincerely apologize to Mr. Ross, my teammates, coaches, staff and fans for these tweets. I am committed to represent the values of the Miami Dolphins organization and appreciate the opportunity I have been given to do so going forward."

Coach Joe Philbin called Jones' statements "inappropriate and unacceptable" adding "We met with Don today about respect, discrimination and judgment. These comments are not consistent with the values and standards of our program."

Jones must undergo sensitivy training before he will be allowed to rejoin team activities.

Now that there is a gay player in the league, the homophobic nonsense is over.
