According to a January 4 article in the NY Times; the Minnesota Vikings have promised to investigate allegations made by former punter Chris Kluwe. Kluwe claims that the Vikings released him due in large part to his outspoken support of same sex marriage.
The article goes on to say that Kluwe also accused the specialty team’s coach of making homophobic statements during meetings.
Kluwe’s outspokenness is not limited to the football field.
According to Wikipedia; Kluwe was fined $5,000 dollars for a uniform violation. Kluwe was fined for taking a “post it note” and placing it on top of a patch on his uniform. During the NFL lockout of 2011; Kluwe referred to some NFL superstars as “douchebags” for allegedly holding up negotiations.
One Christian stated the following:
“This has nothing to do with same sex marriage, and everything to do with protocol. The Holy Bible encourages us to go to our brother if we catch him in a fault. If that does not work; we go again. Kluwe was warned; but did not stop. Free speech comes with free consequences! The Bible says that everything is permissible; but not beneficial. ”
Kluwe was released by the Vikings before the start of the 2013 season.
Did Kluwe handle this matter correctly?
