ESPN's Broussard takes a hard stand on the right to be gay

It's nothing personal, I always have enjoyed listening to Mr. Broussard, but as an older minority who has lived his life witnessing bigotry and exclusion- up front and personal - I have developed a weak stomach for any kind of racism, against anybody, for any reason, specially when is hiding behind religion.

  • I have just about had it??? with people like Ellen DeGeneres who and how??? many times must remind us of her preferences????
  • Chris Broussard is a true Christian. What did the world expect him to say, that homosexuality is ok? He knows the heart of Jesus Christ who declares in Leviticus that homosexuality is an abomination. Also, he has not apologized for his comment like so many pro athletes and celebrities has done out of fear. Kobe, Kevin Hart, and tons of others are cowards. Broussard represents bravery.
  • Chris Broussard took a stand. He has done so in a godly way. He has not "bashed" and/or called others names such as "cowards" for not being steadfast to their belief nor the lifestyle(gay) some have chosen. I do not, however, think it is appropriate to call others "cowards" for showing love or repenting for their sins. "...Love others as I have loved you" thus saith the Lord, Jesus. I don't recall Jesus turning his back on or calling people names for being outside what is written. The woman at the well--a known *****--was embraced for her being one of God's children in spite of her "lifestyle." Jesus also embraced those inflicted with infirmaries i.e.leprosy. Thus when my brother or sister falls and/or struggles with a sin, I pray for them. To my recollection, I do believe, as a Christians, that's is what we should do as oppose to "stoning" them!!! For it is written, "the one without sin, cast the first stone..." Moreover, if you say you are without sin, then you are calling God a liar! That being said, let's show LOVE to the person not the lifestyle.
  • I wasn't a Chris Broussard fan until he took a stand on homosexuality. I do feel sorry for those who try to say it is not a sin. Bless us all.
