Skip to comments.ESPN Apologizes for Discussion in Which Christian Commentator Said Gay Sex is a Sin
Posted on 05/02/2013 7:42:29 AM PDT by marshmallow
In a discussion about an NBA player coming out as gay, ESPN commentator Chris Broussard said on the air that he's a follower of Jesus Christ and believes that homosexuality is against Gods law.
Im a Christian, he stated. I dont agree with homosexuality. I think its a sin. I think all sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is [sin].
Today, ESPN issued sort of an apology, saying:
We regret that a respectful discussion of personal viewpoints became a distraction from todays news. ESPN is fully committed to diversity and welcomes Jason Collins announcement.

Not much of a respectful discussion if you don’t allow opposing viewpoints. Good for Chris Broussard.
Wow. To ESPN, you’re sinning if you’re married to the opposite sex! “We welcome Jasons comments...”!?
ESPN celebrates diversity in everything except thought, belief and speech.
It’ll be a pleasure to not watch them any more.
Throw in that Fox Sports is telling us that the only true Christians support gay propaganda and it looks worse.
Finally, something decent comes out of ESPN, and they try to cover it up.
Diversity?? Why don't they just say fully committed to the HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA.
Ask Rush Limbaugh how “diversity” works on ESPN. I’m guessing Broussard’s fate will be the same as Rush’s with them.
How about apologizing to the Christians for every time you bashed them?
Where / when are they saying this ?
Not doubting you just curious, and not a follower of sports at all lately.
“dont allow opposing viewpoints”
Thats what liberalism is al about dontcha know. I hope Mr Broussard has his resume up to date.
ESPN would rather you squeal like pig .
Again, this issue is NOT about tolerance; it is about the DEMAND to accept, to embrace, to LOVE perversion. Next time a brother or sister says “let live”, tell them that it isn’t about that. It is about the destruction of YOUR moral foundation and bowing to the god of this age.
The ugliest seems to be buried or gone now, but this one is bad enough:
Ok, so let me get this straight, they are committed to diversity but apologize for diverse comments? That statement is in of itself intolerant and hypocritical.
We regret that ESPN is so narrow-minded that they require everyone to think as ordered. Instead of pointing out that a washed-up player who was averaging media for fools with his Homosexual Circus, they viciously attacked a Christian for daring to witness to the biblical view of homosexuality that has been taught for thousands of years by all major religions.
Religious leaders have been conspicuously silent.
