Michael Sam is back in the news and this time he is attempting to make a very big statement.
Sam proposed to his longtime boyfriend, Vito Cammisano, inside St. Peter’s Basilica, which is in Vatican City.
Sam posted a photo of himself dropping to one knee with a view of the Vatican behind. Considering the Catholic Church is still for traditional marriage, this is a rather provocative statement that Sam is making.
Sam was to be the first openly gay football player in the NFL but was cut from the St. Louis Rams before being cut from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.
