Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Donte Stallworth is the latest professional athlete to express support for gay marriage.

The 30-year-old Stallworth also took to his Twitter account on Tuesday to support CNN anchor Don Lemon's decision to come out gay.

“Sad that people are ridiculed for their sexual orientation in this age... and leave religion out of this, God loves ALL!!! #hyporcrites,” he messaged his more than 67,000 followers.

“These politicians that use religion to deter gay marriage are same ones doing dirty under the table ish & war mongering #WheresYourReligion.”

Moments later he added, “Wanda Sykes: 'If you don't believe in same sex marriage, don't marry the same sex.' #EnoughSaid.”

Stallworth, who was awarded by his teammates last year's Ed Block Courage Award, also tweeted support for Lemon: “Lots of courage you have my brother... Live your life the way it makes YOU happy! @donlemoncnn #GodBless.”

A gay marriage endorsement nearly two weeks ago by New York Rangers winger Sean Avery sparked a loud debate on homophobia in professional sports that has yet to diminish. Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley agreed with Avery, while on-air sports personality Damian Goddard didn't, and was fired. In the past couple of days, Phoenix Suns CEO and President Rick Welts came out gay and two players, Grant Hill and Jared Dudley, appeared in an anti-gay bullying ad. On Monday, former Villanova basketball player Will Sheridan followed Welts out of the closet, and on Tuesday, the San Francisco Giants announced they would record a video in support of troubled gay teens.
