    Openly Gay NFL Draft Sam could be fired for being gay..

    Rams drafting Michael Sam could impact Missouri law

    This is the most ludicrous thing I have ever heard.

    Missouri needs to get their act together. How can a state law supercede a federal one?

    Living in Missouri can be like traveling back in time. And not in the cool way, like in the TARDIS. In a major uncool way.

    There are a lot of great people and a lot of really great things about Missouri, don't get me wrong. But some of their political shit is embarrassing.

    This article is a little misleading. No, he can't be fired for being gay because he is under an employment contract which gives him greater rights than state law.
    This article is using a bad popular example to nearly say that the state's laws do not classify sexual orientation as a protected class.
    If you want my opinion on your relationship or life issues, just ask Villanelle!

    Missouri is a backwards state in many regards. I wouldn't work there anyway since a few cities (at least KC and St Louis) charge you an earnings tax if you work in the city.

    But that said him being gay is not a news flash anymore so the Rams can't act like they don't know and since they drafted him anyways I am going to guess him being gay is meaningless to him.

    Which federal law is that? Did ENDA pass and I wasn't aware of it? You can potentially be fired or not hired for being gay in my state too, and in many other states.
