On Monday, like many in both the sports and non-sports worlds, Butler’s thoughts turned to Jason Collins. He tweeted this:
Congrats to Jason Collins— leroy butler
And apparently, Butler says, a certain church in Wisconsin was not pleased.
Wow, I was schedule to speak at a church in WI, and a member said that the pastor wants to cancel my event, I said ok why?— leroy butler
Then I was told, because I said congrats to Jason Collins on twitter, I said really? we have a contract, he said check the moral cause,— leroy butler
FYI the fee was 8500$,then I was told if i removed the tweet, and apologize and ask god forgiveness, I can have the event, I said no,— leroy butler
Butler may have been inspired by Collins, but now he’s an inspiration as well.
