Robert Griffin 3 in GQ

Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III says the “window” of opportunity is open for gay players to come out of the closet. RG3 made the statements in a cover interview published in the September 2013 issue of GQ magazine.

“I think there are [gay players] right now, and if they’re looking for a window to just come out, I mean, now is the window,” said Griffin, who is recovering from offseason knee surgery. “My view on it is, yes, I am a Christian, but to each his own. You do what you want to do. If some Christians want to look at being gay as a sin, then thinking about other women, committing adultery—or any of those other sins that are in the Bible—those are sins, too. And God looks at all of us the same way.”
