    Hey Adam win the Gold for your country. We all know that most countries would've put you in jail for being gay.

      tony fat at least he didn't get a girl pregnant in his teen years :/ plus his sexual orientation and sexual health have no influence on his performance... it's common sense

      if you're referencing a verse that explains something against gays, then you should also read about how god taught people to love each other and be compassionate. you don't have to be gay, and you don't have to like gay things, but you should still respect gays cos they're still humans who were created by god.

      In the good ol days gays had to hide in the closet cause they knew they were despicable. Then we were told that we have to be nice to them. The slogan "gay is ok" started flying around until our kids started believing it. Now they are brainwashed to believe it is ok, and we have a nation full of fairies.

      peter m you miss hate? Isn't it tiring to be that hung up on something that doesn't involve you... like I don't like pizza but I ain't moving anywhere cause of it. I don't think I've ever really cared that much about who someone fucks. 🤷🏼‍♂️ oh well, I'm sure Jesus is very proud of you for caring so much about who this athlete sleeps with👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👌🏾

    Bible ref.
    1 Corinthians 6:9-10
    9 Or do you not know that the UNrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?
    Do not be deceived:
    neither the sexually immoral,
    nor fornicators,
    nor idolaters,
    nor adulterers,
    nor homosexuals,
    nor thieves,
    nor sodomites,
    nor thieves,
    nor covetious,
    nor drunkards,
    nor revilers,
    nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

    All must REPENT from Sin to enter thy kingdom.
