No reason why gays can’t also be pro athletes

This is in regard to the young college football player who is entering the NFL draft and has announced that he is gay. I’m puzzled as to why there are so many who think this is a problem. Gay people have lived and worked among us since the beginning of time. They’re politicians, teachers, entertainers, etc. Why can’t they also be professional athletes?

I know we try to “tolerate” those who have a different lifestyle from our own, but hopefully we can mature as fellow men and learn acceptance instead. God created all of us.
