DOUCHE OF THE WEEK

Anti-Gay ESPN “Reporter” Chris Broussard Believes Gays Can Change “Through Prayer”

broussard-doucheSeriously, Chris Broussard? Are you trying to get fired?

After shading Jason Collins in an interview with Outside the Lines on Monday, claiming his sexuality is “an open rebellion to God and Jesus Christ,” ESPN’s Bible correspondant Chris Broussard called into Power 105.1 Breakfast Club (who had named him “Donkey of the Day”) to make a bigger ass of himself.

Apparently Broussard interacts with “many different lifestyles” working for the NBA, which somehow justifies his religious commentary. “You sound like the black guy that says ‘I’m not racist, I got black friends” the host quipped.

Furthermore, Broussard spends a few minutes endorsing gay conversion therapy. He believes that people who “fall” into same-sex relationships can be “saved” through prayer:

“That’s the life of a Christian, you have to fight against temptation, and if you stumble and fall, you get back up and ask God for forgiveness, and you move on.”

“I think that applies to homosexuals as well. If a person who is a same-sex attractive [sic] and they’re sincerely trying to live for the lord, and they fall into a same-sex relationship…and they repent, and they ask for forgiveness, and they keep trying to serve God, I believe that person is a Christian.”

Listen to the full interview below (if you can handle starring at that snaggle tooth for more than 20 seconds). Of all the crazies slinging hate at Jason Collins this week, you, Mr. Broussard, are the douchiest.

    Notice how this hypocrite fails to call on divorced people to repent of their “sin”? If he knows the Bible he should know that Jesus was very clear that he considered
    divorce a serious sin. As for homosexuality, Jesus never bothered to mention it.

  • Caliban

    So in other words he’s a fucking moron on top of being a bible-thumping homophobe.

  • 2eo

    There is a definite correlation between religiousness and incompetence.

  • tardis

    I hope he’s consistent and continues his holy mission against Red Lobster, considering that eating shrimp is a sin.

    Maybe he’s confused by his religion. Chris Broussard is a perfect example of Christian hypocrisy. It’s unbelievable. This is a prime example of a person breeding in opinion and ignorance. He doesn’t not realize the harm and pain he’s causing. He doesn’t not realize the misguided bigoted sentiments he’s reinforcing with his audience. This man is not a Christian.

  • Dakotahgeo

    I apologize… I got 3+ minutes into this mierda and promptly threw up! I think I’m finally developing an allergy to these types of people. Gotta go… I don’t feel so good!

  • ChiChi Man

    I wonder if Mr. Broussard is speaking from experience. Within 5 years, he’ll be caught in some public restroom

  • Polaro

    He doesn’t look very smart. In his case looks are a window into his soul.

  • hyhybt

    “That’s the life of a Christian, you have to fight against temptation, and if you stumble and fall, you get back up and ask God for forgiveness, and you move on.”

    I for one have quite enough repenting to do without adding in things that aren’t even wrong.

  • hf2hvit

    Why would prayer cure anything? It hasn’t cured his (probably self-)hatred or his stupidity.

  • SebX

    Even if the ridiculousness of considering homosexuality as something to be cured of was true, prayer doesnt cure cancer, why would it “cure” homosexuality?

    I’ve got to admit that these pseudo-christian extremists are right about something: I’m very intolerant. I have absolutely no patience nor understanding for stupidity.

  • Caleb in SC

    @tardis: Exactly, or even better, turn his attention against tattoos. The Bible also says that ink is a sin. If that is the case, then everyone in the NBA is going to hell.

  • Harley

    I’m going to get down on my knees and pray everyday that Chris Broussard will start dreaming of sucking dick every night, over and over and over, and then start wanting to act on those urges but then every gay in mankind reject this asshole. May he live a lonely, pathetic existence

  • Badger88

    Chris Broussard is a dumbass. I’m sick and tired of people justifying their own bigotry by claiming it’s “God’s will.”

  • MisterMan

    Uh .. I like being gay…I don’t want to change. So, why are these a-holes so worried about who I am? Memo to these a-holes: Perfect your own lives and STFU about mine. Sincerely, MisterMan.

    I have never understood why blacks do not look at one FACT about religion: Mr. Whiteman FORCED his belief down their throats and made them believe that their religion (a religion that they had practiced for THOUSANDS of years BEFORE he showed up preaching his Christian b/s) was wrong BUT his was right. Voodoo WAS NOT a belief that included cutting off heads, evil spells and such. I see NOTHING wrong with a belief that one could be protected by the spirits of family and tribal members. How does that differ from these so called angels in the belief of Catholicism? He has no problem preaching Christianity but would grab his panties and flee if he were told he was being taken to a voodoo service.

    Evil people were EVERYWHERE throughout the world and thought potions, amulets and other foolishness would help destroy their enemies. There were also hypocrites galore who followed more out of fear than belief in the old world. In todays world the hypocrites are there more for the sex and money they get from the misguided in their flocks. Ol’ brother Eddie Long down in Atlanta was a perfect example of the ultimate hypocrite. Here was a man who would lead thousands of bible thumping blacks in marches against gays and had no problem (nor shame)standing in front of the crowd or his pulpit in church searching for his next teenaged black male victim. And there were plenty of fine pickings too.

    The more people like this imbecile open their mouths and start preaching about a man up in the sky who made ALL of creation the more I see the cruelty of slavery and its aftermath on a people who were forced to FORGET their origins and accept the “word of God” from a people who had NO intentions of including them in nothing but labor and profit. He is too damn stupid to look back in think that if a slave owner learned that one of his slaves were gay he would have no doubt ISOLATED him from the others because of a threat to his life. The slave owner would have looked at the fact that he was still able bodied and could work. The only problem would have been that he would not have been a breeder like this god fearing black Christian idiot named Broussard. I say no more.

    @Bob LaBlah: “We learned about this from an evil man” does not logically lead to the conclusion “this is false.”

  • Bob LaBlah

    @hyhybt:Go on. Please don’t stop there. Include its validity in your next comment. I not only know that it will be an eternal wait but I stand with my conclusions.

  • hyhybt

    @Bob LaBlah: I’m not going to argue either way about that on this site; it serves no purpose, and is even irrelevant to the point I was making.

    Why do you want people to use invalid grounds for their decision making?

  • Bob LaBlah

    @hyhybt: Assuming your “we learned this from an evil man” remark was twisted from my comment how do YOU describe men who twisted the words of “God” to justify enslaving a man while at the same time preaching that if he follows this new garbag..er, um, religion he will reap the heavenly rewards of the Supreme Mr. White Man in the sky? I await your answer.

  • hyhybt

    @Bob LaBlah: Then you should ask a question that makes sense. You said, at great length, that you wished black people would look at the circumstances under which their ancestors became Christians. Perhaps I misunderstood your reason for this, but it seems pretty obvious that the reason you wanted them to do that was to get them to reject Christianity.

    Obviously, there is no logically sound connection leading from the circumstances under which something (no matter what that something is) was learned to the conclusion that that something must therefore be false.

    I’d like to explain better, but that is of course going to be impossible until you come up with a question that makes sense in the context of what’s been said already. Your post #17 doesn’t even come close, especially with no clear antecedent to “its” and given that I was pointing out an INvalidity. Your #19 is only slightly better; it at least WOULD make sense had it been a response to a totally different post which, so far as I can see, nobody here has written.

    “We learned this from an evil man” was a condensed version of your statements about “Mr. Whiteman,” who I now see wasn’t intended to be a single real person at all but that is logically irrelevant. Nothing I wrote could rationally be interpreted as describing anyone (other than the word “evil,” a point on which we seem to agree at least so far as it relates to how black people were treated in the period you reference.) Why do you ask for further description? My point, again, is that you (correct me if I’m wrong) are wanting black people to look at how their ancestors were treated specifically for the purpose of getting them to reject Christianity. My point is that there is no logical connection whatsoever between that treatment and whether Christianity is true or false.

    Sorry this is so long. Explanations tend to get that way when there’s no way besides guesswork to tell what it is you didn’t understand.

    “Furthermore, Broussard spends a few minutes endorsing gay conversion therapy. He believes that people who “fall” into same-sex relationships can be “saved” through prayer”

    I don’t think he mentioned gay conversion specifically. From what I can tell he could have been talking about people who have a desire to have sex with people of the same sex but try to stay abstinent and repent when they sin instead of being with someone of a different sex.

  • yellwol3

    @Bob LaBlah: I think it would be better if you took into a account that it seems that many of the first ancestors of modern African-Americans to have become Christian became Christian during the Great Awakening and many were not exactly ‘forced’ by their slave owners to become Christian.

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=6997059

    A decent number of of the first ancestors of modern white Americans to have become Christian became Christian because they were basically ‘forced’ to by the leader of the group they belonged to.

    @hyhybt: The only thing you prove is what my professor said in Anthropology 101 on how useful the class would one day prove to be. He stated that one day “you will be engaged in a discussion where you are not going to bowl them over with brilliance. In that case, simply baffle them with BULLSHIT”, which is ALL your commentary PROVES to be.

    Have a nice weekend and try not to get so worked up over someone NOT believing an man is in the sky watching and listening to EVERYTHING six-billion plus people are doing but yet does NOT stop them from harming themselves. Including his (so called) son. What a ridiculous………..answer me this: in this “paradise” called heaven what type of clothing do they wear? Or is clothing optional?

  • Bob LaBlah

    @yellwol3: “many were not exactly ‘forced’ by their slave owners to become Christian”…………interesting. Just out of curiosity, who was it that started the Great Awakening? Need I say anymore? And what was so bad about their religion that it HAD to be crushed? Blind obedience perhaps?

  • yellwol3

    @Bob LaBlah: I believe the Great Awakening originally started in the Northeastern colonies that would become part of the USA and didn’t have much to do with the religion of slaves. You are right that some white preachers and slave owners thought their religion had to be ‘crushed’. I’m saying I think it would be better if you took into account that some slaveowners didn’t care much what the religion of their slaves was and didn’t really ‘force’ them to become Christian.

  • Bob LaBlah

    @yellwol3: Ok.
