Conservatives Upset Tebow Treated Worse For Being Christian Than Sam For Being Gay
So, they have to make a comparison as though there is some kind of equivalency.
DeMarcus Walker, a defensive end for the national champion Florida State Seminoles, made the comparison on Twitter on Saturday.
Y’all praise Michael Sam for being gay but y’all mocked Tim Tebow for being a Christian. Smh #Society

Michelle Malkin’s staff at Twitchy picked up Walker’s comments and other conservative blogs followed suit.
Except: Michael Sam hasn’t been uniformly praised.
Several anonymous NFL insiders predicted that the announcement would hurt Sam’s draft stock. His own father also expressed misgivings with homosexuality beforesaying he had been “terribly misquoted.”
A player for the Miami Dolphins was fined over the weekend for reacting negatively on Twitter to Sam’s selection. He eventually apologized.
