Lobbyist Seeks to Ban Gays from NFL

Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman said he is preparing legislation that would ban gay athletes from joining the National Football League, The Hill reports.

Said Burkman: "We are losing our decency as a nation. Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man. That's a horrifying prospect for every mom in the country. What in the world has this nation come to?"

He added: "If the NFL has no morals and no values, then Congress must find values for it."
