Hi –

Will someone with some balls please stand for truth WITHOUT punking out when the heat comes on? Woe to calling evil good and good evil – Isaiah 5:20 – KJV.

Hi –

I tell you what – GOD will never apologize for being about rock solid truth. Homosexuality is an abomination. Leviticus 20:13 and Romans 1:27 – KJV.

And people are calling evil good and good evil. Woe to those who do such…- Isaiah 5:20 – KJV

GOD loves sinners but hates sin. He says, “Come as you are but when you abide in Me, you can’t stay as you are.”

###

GOD ain’t bowing to nothing and no one. He owns the air.

And GOD is poised to crash some parties…

Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Monday I got a new Alfa Romeo from bringing in $7778. I started this 9 months ago and practically straight away started making more than $83 per hour. I work through this link, MOJO50.COM

This wasn’t an apology. No apology necessary. Why is it that folks say “LEAVE YOUR ‘RELIGION’ OUT OF IT!!!” when it comes to discussions, yet here Jason Collins is bringing his sexual orientation into it. Isn’t that a double standard??? Leave religion out, but please, by all means, bring your sexuality in!!! That is accepted!!! I think Jason Collins is an awesome athlete. Never heard of him before yesterday, but if your in the NBA, your there for a reason. With that said, Jason Collins, myself, Chris Broussard, we all are sinners. According to the bible that Christians believe, the only difference is some people accepted Christ’s death on the cross to pay the price for their sins, while others don’t. Homosexuality, extra marital affairs, fornication, stealing, cheating, lying, abuse, getting drunk, all of these are sins! No one is picking on homosexuality, that just ended up being the flavor of the day yesterday! But the good news is Christ died to pay that price for all of that. We all just need to repent, turn away from our sins, and trust Him.

Wasn’t an apology because an apology wasn’t necessary. He made a comment based on his own beliefs and said so.

There was no apology necessary. How can one side of the culture freely be allowed to state their opinions but if your a christian you cannot. Jesus is about love and yes as Christians do we love homosexuals. WE DO but that does not mean we have to agree with their lifestyle. Why are we being reprimanded for speaking our convictions? I completely respect Chris Broussard and I believe he did absolutely nothing wrong in this scenario.

What gets me is the person that “asked” Chris the question asked him what he thought about Jason “saying” he was a Christian. Chris said “personally” and went on to tell him what the “bible” says about sin and yes the bible talks about a man being with another man being against God. So stop trying to blast this dude when he was the one put on the spot. The same way Jason made it everybody’s business to tell he was gay…Chris had the same right to tell people about his stance. Leave that man alone!

Chris had his opinion, which he is entitled to, and he spoke it… However, many people get so many things wrong when it comes to religion and the first amendment right… (1) While the first amendment right gives people the right to say almost anything they won’t, it also gives people the right to disagree with what the person said… It doesn’t give you the right to say whatever you feel without any backlash… (2) I’m kind of glad that Chris brought up premarital sex as a sin as well…. So many people are quick to judge homosexuals as sinners, when the same ones are walking around with about 2 or 3 kids out of wedlock, having sex left and right with people who they are not married to, and no one says a thing… People like to become so self-righteous and Christian when it benefits them… If Jason is a sinner, half of the NBA are sinners a long with him, because we know how many of them participate in premarital sex

Chris Broussard did not apologize to Jason Collins for calling him a sinner. He had no reason to apologize. Read Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. Homosexual interocurse is a sin.Your headline is a total LIE. Stop calling people that don’t agree with the homosexual lifestyle bigots, homophobic, and intolerant. If you have the right to choose who you sleep with, others have the right to disagree with the lifestyle. Biology obviously doesn’t agree with it, thus the inability for homosexuals to reproduce at 100%health and function.

No appology was necessary. Mr. Broussard was stating his opinion and the last time I checked, freedom of expression as well as religion is still protected under the constitution.

This guys statement about homosexuals concerning Jason Collins is totally unacceptable. It was right he apologized but his views regarding his regelious views are extreme. His views are radical in general and should never be allowed in public. He can believe them but he is not in the mainstream. Why do some people think they are better than others and can judge people?

Everybody is a sinner in one way or another. This being said why should Chris say sorry for stating his personal views. Even if his ideas are radical that is exactly the kind of speech that the first amendment is around to protect. “They shouldn’t be allowed in public”. What rock do you live under. If that was the case then gays would never have been allowed to talk about being gay cause that was the same kind of things people used to say about them.

So no one can have an opinion if it differs from yours? Also, if His views are “extreme”.I guess Jesus was an extremist also, right?

Hi –

You’re off base with your comments. GOD is the judge. Chris expressed what is clearly of content contained in the Holy Bible.

“His views are radical and should never be allowed in public.” ? Wow, I disagree with you…wait! Am I a radical? How extreme of me to disagree with your blanket ignorance of what is and isn’t extreme! “He is not in the mainstream.”? Really…? when 35+ states BY POPULAR MAJORITY voted that marriage should consist only between a man and a woman. Can you explain to me what mainstream is? Only what you agree with?
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but when someone espouses a particular belief system (Jason says he is a Christian), but lives his life contrary to that belief system’s tenets and someone (Chris B) says, Hey, that doesn’t line up with this belief system, why not go test Jason’s comments against the belief system?
Do you have to be perfect to be a Christian? of course not…in fact, you have to be able to admit you can’t save yourself and your lost without Christ.
Can you have same sex attraction and be a Christian? sure, The attraction isn’t the sin. The sin is acting against the commandment in thought or deed. That’s the Biblical standard. It’s been mainstream for a few thousand years and it will continue to be.

@greg…his views are well within the mainstream of true believers. And his statement while it may be unacceptable to you, it is correct. While not everyone believes in the word of God, it is the truth non the less. He was asked a question and he gave a answer. Not everyone is going to agree with the “gay agenda”. This is America, we have the right to express our views in a open forum ,without fear of reprisal.

Chis is 100% correct on thus one. The Bible speaks clearly against homosexuality. America might as well start supporting serial killers too because murder is also a sin. Look at what happened to Tiger Woods for his sin. Are we not a Christian nation anymore when it comes to homosexuality or are we just dealing with homosexual extremists?

In America, there is supposed to be a separation of the church and state, so while Christianity should be and has been completely embraced in American society, its doctrines should not hold any control over our government and be given the ability to prevent a group of people (in this case homosexuals) equal rights.

Hey Richadrs…aka DICKHEADS……………Broussard was ASKED for his opinion! That’s right, ASKED. Should he LIE, like the Left does? Thank God for people like Broussard. I just wish he had NOT apologized. Why should he? Because he has an OPINION that differs from yours? Get Over It!

who ever made this is a complete idiot, real talk. The fact of the matter is this: you cannot be a homosexual and a christian, Chris Broussard said the truth and nothing less than it. I commend him for his bravery and he doesn’t owe anyone an apology, If anyone needs to issue an apology, it should be Jason Collins for blaspheming Christianity by thinking that he’s one. not my opinion, just facts. Read the bible and stop posting stupidty

Read anything OTHER than the bible, and you will stop posting stupidity.Get rid of Christians and all other religious people. Then we all can live freely without the imposed morality by sheeple who believe they were ‘created’ by an invented concept. Broussard isn’t brave at all, he’s not the one who had to hide in society and wrestle with his lifestyle because of bigoted idiots such as yourself. Or do you think he chose to be gay? If you truly believe that, then I’m sorry but not even a real god could help you with your ignorance.

It’s not an apology because he has nothing to apologize for — he was asked a question, he answered it. This country needs more people like Chris Broussard and less people like the ones who wrote this article.

Why does he owe anyone an apology? You want the right to voice your beliefs and opinions but don’t want to extend that same privilege to someone if they disagree with you. Hypocrites.

Jason Collins opened himself up to EVERYONE talking about his personal life when he came out in a Sports Illustrated COVER STORY. Chris Broussard doesn’t owe Jason Collins a damn thing – according to Christian doctrine, homosexuality is a sin.
You need to stick to what you know, which doesn’t appear to be much. Your website makes me incredibly concerned about the future of humanity. How about this? Go get a REAL job, and contribute something constructive to society.

He didn’t apologize he clarified his statement, and he doesn’t owe this guy an apology. He was stating his beliefs just like Jason publicly stated his sexual preference to the world. Christians do believe that homosexuality is a sin, and they are also taught that judgment is the Lord’s and all will be judged by God. So I don’t feel he should have even had to clarify.

” a basketball analyst, Jason’s personal life is really no place for him to comment”, really. Jason made his personal life a news event for us to talk about so Chris has all right to do so. Secondly, the GAY MAFIA once again shouts down any dissenting opinion regarding an opposing view to homsexuality……this is a disturbing trend…….”Spiritual wickedness in high places” …so true.
