ESPN voice sparks controversy

Jason Collins’ announcement that he is gay was met with

differing opinions. There was much support, and then there was

ESPN’s Chris Broussard.

Broussard, a basketball voice for the network, has spoken out

open against homosexuality in the past and was just as opinionated

on Collins on Monday.

“Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly

homosexual lifestyle, or like, premarital sex between heterosexuals

… it says that that’s a sin … I believe that’s walking

in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ,” he said on the show.

“So, I would not characterize that person as a Christian, because I

don’t think the Bible would characterize that person as a

Christian.”

His comments caused a

of reaction to say the least.
