The United States Supreme Court made history Friday by making marriage equality a national law.

While support for same-sex marriage is being widely reported from coast-to-coast, Pro Football Talk points out not everyone is pleased with the court's ruling – specifically, Minnesota Vikings defensive back Josh Robinson.

Robinson tweeted his opinion on the matter. UPDATE: Robinson has since made his Twitter account private.

The Big Lead says Robinson went too far when equating homosexuality to pedophilia and incest.

While some say Robinson has the right to voice his opinion, there seems to be an overwhelming number of responses disagreeing with his stance.

Meanwhile, famous athletes all over the country are voicing their support for the legalization of same-sex marriage. Sports Illustrated has more, but here are a few.
