An Christian ESPN broadcaster does not like Jason Collins’ gayness, and he picked a really inopportune time to talk about it:
Broussard, however, seems not as forgiving or accepting as the Savior he states to follow, particularly where homosexuality is concerned. He voiced his point of view, ironically, in the presence of ESPN’s LZ Granderson, another very popular commentator who happens to be gay.
His comments from his appearance on ‘Outside the Lines’ were:
“Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly premarital sex between heterosexuals, if you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits, it says that’s a sin. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, adultery, fornication, premarital sex between heterosexuals, whatever it may be, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I do not think the Bible would characterize them as a Christian.”
The response should be simple: if god wants me to be less happy, he’s an ass. And if being a Christian means denying who I am, then I don’t want to be one.
