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.
