Heightened sensitivity'? Minnesota Vikings hold summit to discuss LGBTQ inclusion in sports

What's going on?

The Minnesota Vikings are hosting a summit and fundraiser to encourage LGBTQ inclusion in sports.

Tell me more: 

The summit featuring speeches, interviews and panel discussions with sports figures and advocates who identify as LGBTQ is part of a settlement agreement the Vikings made with former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe.

The former football player, who is straight, sued the team in 2014 for allegedly creating a hostile work environment for gay and transgender people.

How did the Minnesota Vikings encourage "inclusion"?

Athletes, coaches and activists spoke at the summit. The Vikings' announcement is only the latest move from the NFL to encourage LGBTQ inclusion. The league launched "NFL Pride" last year to "heighten sensitivity to the LGBTQ community."

Glenn's take:

When did sports stop being about, you know, playing sports? The Vikings "seem more concerned with dismantling social norms and protesting than with actually playing football," Glenn said on today's show.
