ESPN sportscaster Chris Broussard pulled a “Bryan Fischer” in a segment with gay ESPN colleague LZ Granderson while NBA player Jason Collins, who came out of the closet to become the first out gay male player in pro sports saying that Collins is “living in unrepentant sin” and that he’s in an “open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ”
“Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly, like 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, you know, that’s a sin. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, whatever it maybe, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. So I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I don’t think the bible would characterize them as a Christian.”
“I think, I think, I think…” Personally Broussard I truly don’t really give a shit what YOU think. Because after all straight male athletes lead pure, chaste Christ centered lives. No idolatry or
false gods. No sex for purposes other than procreation. No gluttony of drink, drugs or cash. No lies, no cheating, no defiling or defacing their bodies and you in all your self-righteousness would never call them out publically on air.
This is what I’d expect to hear if the 700 Club did sports commentary, NOT on a mainstream sports network. Not only is Boussard a sanctimonious religious moron but ESPN who let this bullshit on the air states they want to do a campaign of encouraging athletes to come out and have support for it, yet when the first athlete does come out, they have a prominent
employee of theirs lash out on his character, sexuality and religion.
Fuck Chris Broussard and fuck ESPN.
And after almost 24 hours where is GLAAD and HRC and why are they not asking for accountability from ESPN?
Fuck them too.
