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.
“Christian Commentator Said Gay Sex is a Sin”
his last year in the NBA where he aveages 1 point a game and last year of a contract. Let see someone do it who is in their prime
The LGBT lobby has no interest in genuine equality.
ESPN has always been left wing, but they’ve gone into MSNBC territory with Obama in office...
Rece Davis is a Christian. I wonder what he would say if asked. Lou Holtz is Catholic and a very outspoken Catholic at that. I wonder what he would have to say if asked. I don’t know about Mark May, but I get the feeling that he is a Christian as well.
All black Fox sports writers are anti-white. Whitlock, for example, bitches about the lack of blacks in baseball and coaching..like he doesn’t know that blacks make up a majority of the NFL and NBA.
Broussard set himself nicely that ESPN could not fire him, even though it’s a pro-obama network. Every effing’ week, obama is a headliner on their pages. They wish they could get rid of Broussard but Broussard will likely sue the network for discrimination.
espn has a LOT to apologize for over the years. This incident isn’t one of them, however.
to be gay would be a pain in the ass, i love women and will stay that way.
The author of the article accused Christians of cherry-picking verses. She used a couple of verses on love to chastise Christians who speak out against homosexuality all the while ignoring the verses which DIRECTLY speak of homosexuality and condemn it. Isn't that cherry-picking verses?
I see what you were referring to. Good grief. Fox Sports is now engaged in Theology.
Then why apologize?
I haven't heard anything yet either. Interesting. I wonder what Cardinal Dolan thinks.....or maybe I don't.
Is anybody in Freeper Land in a position to offer Mr. Broussard his next job?
Let’s all do our part to stand with this Christian and stand with him.
It is simple to go to ESPN and search for him and get his email.
SEND HIM AN EMAIL. LET HIM SEE HE DOES NOT STAND ALONE STANDING UP FOR THE WORD OF GOD AND JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.
