michael sam gets standing ovation on return to mizzou

Prepare to have your faith in humanity restored!!

This weekend, Michael Sam returned to the University of Missouri to accept the 2014 Cotton Bowl Championship Trophy along with his teammates during a basketball game against the University of Tennessee!

Unfortunately, the always controversial Westboro Baptist Church caught wind that he was going to be in town and made their way to Mizzou Arena to protest his homecoming!

But, an amazing group of UM organized a peaceful response called "Stand with Sam" and they made a human barrier outside of the stadium to keep the nasty protesters at bay!!

Michael got a very warm reception from his fellow Mizzou Tigers too, as he got a standing ovation from a stadium packed with students holding signs in support of the inspirational footballer!!

It's been so amazing to see all of the support that Michael has been getting since he publicly came out of the closet, and we gotta give major props to the Mizzou students who kept Westboro Baptist Church from ruining this beautiful moment!

Ch-ch-check out the "Stand with Sam" movement (below)!

    Re: MizzouBlues

    I went to Mizzou. It is in fact the University of Missouri, but referred to as MU.

    "UM" is the University of Miami.

    thought that was common knowledge but I guess its not unless you're from the area. If you went to the website, you can actually see it from the logo.

    Also we are proud of Michael Sam, and if accepting people for who they are is being misguided, then we'll take it. One day you will look back and see how absurd the hatred is. Your children and their children will be disgusted that the people before them mistreated others based on their sexual preference, such as we are disgusted now that people before us were mistreated based on their skin color. There is no need for such vile behavior towards others. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

    It's sad the the world has deteriorated to the point where sexual perversion in applauded.

    I stand corrected on UM v. MU …. thank you.

    As for the other point. I don't understand how you make the jump from "I don't necessarily agree with your viewpoint" to " I am a hater" There is not hate whatsoever against Mr. Sam. I can disagree with you and STILL support and defend your right to take a positiion on this topic. I do NOT believe in mistreating Mr. Sam, discriminating against Mr. Sam or hurting him in any way. I do NOT support the way Westboro chooses to express their opinion. HOWEVER…. I am not in agreement on his, or your position on homosexuality.

    Do you see how we really can live harmoniously on this matter and simply agree to disagree. We don't have to be labeled HOMOPHOBES or HATERS at all. You position is extreme my dear friend from Missou U.

    Re: MizzouBlues – Yeah…having compassion for people is such a horrible trait that those students possess…do me a favor and explain to me why you give a fuck who or what he sticks his dick in?

    Re: Mad Dog – Homosexuality has been observed in hundreds of species of animals. Homophobia has only been observed in one…humans. Now you tell me which one is perverted

    Hahahahaha! Way to go univ students! Westboro Baptist Cult and other bigots are repugnant creatures who deserved death. Personally, I'm glad that that CULT exists. They are giving face to RADICAL CHRISTIANITY and how dangerous it is.
