Former Packer Supports Jason Collins, Gets Church Appearance Cancelled

Leroy Butler, the former Packers safety who played 12 seasons in Green Bay, was set to make an appearance at a Wisconsin church and talk about whatever it is that former NFL players talk about when they go to churches. Butler's apperance was cancelled, though, when the church discovered that he had sent a tweet congratulating Jason Collins on his decision to come out.

Here's how Butler says everything went down:


I assume that "moral cause" is meant to read "moral clause," which may as well be renamed the "The Right to Cancel Any Appearance Upon Discovering That the Speaker is in Fact a Decent Human Being" clause. Also, couldn't that church find much better ways to spend $8,500? Good job being the worst, shitty pastor at unidentified Wisconsin church.
