Chris Broussard Says Jason Collins Is Living In "Unrepentant Sin" & Is Not A Christian [VIDEO]

Jason Collins got his wish when a story revealing that he was gay was published this morning; conversation has definitely started. Speaking on ESPN, analyst Chris Broussard commented on the NBA center's revelation, and suffice it to say he does not approve of Collins' lifestyle. 

"Personally, I don't believe that you can live an openly homos-xual lifestyle or an openly, like premarital s-x between heteros-xuals," said Broussard on ESPN's Outside The Lines. "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 homos-xuality, adultery, fornication...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."

If you have been a close follower of Broussard, you shouldn't be too shocked about his statement. He is a founder of K.I.N.G., an organization that's purposed is ,"To empower men to reach our God-given potential in every realm of life through the power and grace of The Lord Jesus Christ,." according to its official website.

Now whether you agree with Broussard's rhetoric or not, we are all entitled to our opinions. However, you must be cognizant of the platform you are using to convey that message. In this case, it's the fact that ESPN is signing Broussard's checks and there are no doubt a litany of viewers calling for his firing, right, now.

Let us know what you think of Broussard's comments, and whether or not he will be gainfully employed by ESPN much longer, in the comments.

    Chris Broussard is correct. We ARE living in a time of social tolerance and this is the current climate. However, the contradiction is that this country was founded on GOD and if this is truly the case and our forefathers and America as a country has not based our existence on a lie, then we must adhere to what GOD says. He clearly says in HIS Bible that hey gave to us that he frowns upon all sin consistent. He says that being openly or gay in any right is a sin. Chris Broussard didn't originally say this, GOD did. If it is ok for me to "openly" believe in what I believe in, then it should be "openly" ok for you to not believe in what I believe in as well. People we are not on the right track when a gay man can say that it is not correct to be strait and it make no noise. However if a strait man only says he doesn't understand being gay, the backlash is at critical m*****.

      Your argumentation is lacking in regards to some deductions you make.

      Our founding fathers created this nation on the basis of the separation of church and state. Repeat: the SEPARATION of church and state. You (emphasis on you, your beliefs, and your school's interpretation of religious text) may hold beliefs as to what is moral and what properties god holds. But, there has been historical precedent in our highest courts dictating that insofar as your beliefs do not actively hurt (i.e. deny rights of) others, then you may hold such beliefs. But, as your beliefs are doing such, the aforementioned beliefs are not only detrimental, but against the very foundation of our civil society--as dictated by our legal system. If you were ever to pull yourself out of your inward-looking fervor and survey global cultures, there are countless interpretations of God and what properties it holds, and all are protected by our rights. What does this mean? Not only was our nation NOT founded on your interpretation of God, but your interpretation of God may perhaps be equally valid (or invalid!). Your Bible also dictated that a woman ought to marry their rapist; doesn't that dictate that by your text society should follow such laws? Most likely not, due to (once again) your school's subjective interpretation of these texts.

      Furthermore, WHEN HAS THERE BEEN AN ARGUMENT BY A HOMOSEXUAL INDIVIDUAL PERSECUTING GREATER SOCIETY FOR BEING STRAIGHT? Never, indeed it is quite the converse: individuals such as yourself persecute individuals for being homosexual. And I'm thankful that our society punishes people who try to do such on the basis of their beliefs

      Also, if you wish to be taken seriously: *straight.

        Do you think that the freedom of religion will eventually be erased from the constitution?

      • Ravi

        When you disagree with someone does that now mean that you are now "persecuting" them?

    • alyce1213

      You are deeply mistaken, Wendigital. This country was founded on separation of church and state.
      By the way, do you really think that god wrote the bible?

    • deeznutz

      God did not write the bible....its funny how people take few things friom the bible validate their argument but do not live their lives according to the bible.

  • A Christian

    I agree with Chris Broussard. Jason is not a Christian because so in d bible that's a sin and he is living in sin and if he wants to go to heaven he must what he is doing because the part he is going is leading him straight to hell

  • MrsCampbell235

    Good for you Chris. We need more people using this platform to speak the truth and sometimes the truth hurts. Yes Jesus loves us all, it's our sins that he abhors; that includes homosexuality, fornication, adultery, etc. So sick of people looking to fire or otherwise destroy people's lives because they don't agree with an individual's way of life.

  • oops

    homos are fruits of satan. their lifestyle will never be acceptable , no matter how hard they push it! yuck

    It doesn't matter what Broussard's religion states as good or bad, This is America and Mr. Collins has a right to be who he is. ESPN should not allow him to make such statements. They are a sports station, not a christian sports station. If they wanted to be only about Christians and Christian sports thats fine, but they are not. If he doesn't like him because he's gay that's fine, but how does he feel about Muslims, or Hindus, or Atheists? If you're gonna be a bigot be a bigot to all.

    • Marvin

      and because this is America, Broussard has a right to express his views about Collin's announcement. And ESPN has the right to allow or not allow his statements.

    • Ravi

      Bigot: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

      Why is every person who simply "disagrees" with the homosexual life style labeled a bigot? Sexual orientation is a "behavior". Not a race or an ethnic group. It seems to me that the group that is constantly screaming for tollerance finds itself to be the most intolerant of all.

    finaly someone speaking in the spotlight for christ god is good we know money and fame breeds this type of lifestyle and so much people are scared to speak their minds imagine that but we will let a couple million lost folks condem us all

  • robin ceasar

    If someone is an authority on Christianity in all its forms by all means I like to hear the rationale for why certain sins have greater weight than others. Jason Collins did an unbelievably difficult thing today by openly acknowledging his sexual orientation in a society that still has not embraced differences. He is providing a platform for the sons, nephews, cousins who are currently in that predicament but don't have a roadmap of how to navigate the judgement or naysayers or holier than thou. Think about the young men who are currently struggling and have very little if any support. Yet their athletic ability will have an asterick because of their sexual orientation which is another form of bigotry. No one is saying that you have to agree, understand or even fell comfortable but how about leaving all judgment for God who it was intended for not equally sinning man.

    • cjtgoodlife

      no one sin is greater than the other...it speaks on it in the bible verse: James 2:10-11 (For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law).

    • leslie

      No sin is greater than another. Not one.

  • Michael

    America was founded through genocide (of natives) and slavery. Aint nothing pure about this country.

  • dellz

    God loves the SINNER but hates the SIN.

    Islam is a lifestyle, being a vegan is a lifestyle, being a Christian is a lifestyle, living as a heterosexual is a lifestyle and so is living as a homosexual. Its quite difficult to live two opposing lifestyles. Thus Chris' statement about Jason not being a Christian.

    Lastly, Homosexuality is a sin just like stealing. The sin of homosexuality isnt whats going to take people to hell, rejecting Jesus is.

    • cjtgoodlife

      I agree with what Chris said EXCEPT for the part where he said God doesn't consider you a christian if you continue to walk in unrepented sin or make the same mistakes over and over....as far as God is concerned..you could make the same mistake a million times....as long as you repent of your sin before you die..he will forgive you...everyone has fallen short of the glory of God...that is why God's GRACE and MERCY is sufficient...becoming a christian DOES NOT BY ANY MEANS mean that you will NEVER again sin...it means..you repent of it...regardless of how many times you've made the sin...and God will forgive you. Now to follow that...making the same mistake or sin over and over....is painful to God...the bible says it's like piercing Jesus in his side all over again...like they did when he was crucified. But again God's GRACE and MERCY is sufficient!!!Amen

      • DeAntuan Fuller

        That's not true, if you commit the same sin1,000,000 time how can one say that he has repented? Yah says that the pits of hell are winding everyday. Only 144,000 will make it to the new Jerusalem where they shall be non more transgressing against Yah.

    Love that you are standing for truth.

  • jayhawk fan

    Thank you for speaking the truth Mr. Boussard and not giving in to the pressure to be "tolerant" of sin. I would almost guarantee no one would have even blinked had he said something like - the koran says or allah says it's wrong - or insert any "religion" other than Judaism and Christianity. The only reason why people get so offended at what he said is because their consciences have been *****ed and deep down they realize (although they would never admit it) that he is absolutely right.

  • Jonah

    if you want *****ysis, you don't just take one side. The man has freedom of speech, and It didn't seem out of line to express his beliefs if he's asked. Good for him.

  • me

    Everyone falls short. Their is not ob person in this world that hasn't sinned and u can repent from any sin & change ur life! Everyone has fallin short. Don't just use part of Gods word. If u gone speak it, speak all of it. Thats y people r so condemed now. They think if they make a mistake it can't be fixed. SPEAK ALL OR NONE AT ALL!!! At the end of the day if my GOD forgives who r u to hold on to it. The judges shall be judges!

  • http://www.facebook.com/courtneycameronmoore SirCourtney Cameron Moore

    Dude said some real stuff. Dont be mad cause he right!

  • Reason

    I don't think the man should be fired. He gets paid for his opinion. But he could have also just said that he will pray for him and moved on. Everybody has an opinion but its not up to us to judge anyone, we don't decide if people are going to heaven or hell. So we need to just worry what's going on in our lives what sins we need to ask God to forgive us for.

  • Leslie

    He is correct. Do I think he will be with ESPN? No. They tolerate homosexuals, not those who speak against them. If you speak against it, you are wrong.
