NBA center Jason Collins' courageous -- and highly-debated -- decision to come out as gay has completely transcended basketball, quickly making its way to national news. The same can be said for ESPN analyst Chris Broussard's controversial on-air comments, in which he dubbed homosexuality an "open rebellion" against God.

While several NFL'ers have touched on the subject, Demario Davis is the latest -- and perhaps the most outspoken -- to do so.

The Jets linebacker on Wednesday went on a religion-inspired Twitter tangent, siding with Broussard and acknowledging Collins' "confession about sin."

Receiving inevitable backlash, Davis issued the following:

He would continue ...

Finally, 35 minutes later, Davis wrapped up his rant.
