Chris Broussard's comments on Jason Collins
First of all Chris, I believe you're ignorant and are hiding behind your religion.
If Homosexuality is a sin, so is wearing clothes with two different types of fibers, cutting the sides of your hair, and breeding animals.....all of that is in Leviticus.
I think it's sad that you think that Jason Collins is in "Open rebellion to god and is a sinful person" (whatever the hell that means) just because he was born a certain way.
BTW Chris, I don't think you can say you tolerate Jason Collins lifestyle while saying that he is a "sinful person".
Overall, the reception that Jason Collins is getting around the nation is very positive and the NBA fully supports his decision....unfortunately there are some that can't tolerate it.
Chris is doing nothing but casting stones and passing judgement on another human being in this video while trying to say "Hey, I'm tolerant, but what he's doing is sinful, wrong, and I'm better than him moral wise".
It's pretty sad.

While I don't agree with what he said, I don't agree with most of your rant either."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

Chris' statement can be paraphrased as follows:
"I believe homosexuality is wrong and sinful, but I tolerate Jason's lifestyle"
It is equivalent to saying.
I believe murder is wrong and sinful, but I tolerate a murderer's actions.
There is an implicit contradiction here.
I don't believe you can tolerate the gay lifestyle while saying it is wrong and sinful.

Second, I'm shocked that someone like Chris would actually come out with statements like he just did. You talk about being persecuted for your beliefs, this guy is about get a ton of garbage, that's proved because you already are giving it to him.
Third, I think the bizarre blacklisting of a player that has proven that he can win like Tim Tebow along with the celebration of one of the worst players in the NBA based on his sexual orientation on the same day is pretty bizarre.

Leviticus 19:19 “‘Keep my decrees.“‘Do not mate different kinds of animals.
“‘Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed.
“‘Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.
Levitucs 19:27 "'Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard.
I'm more than happy to call out ignorant people that have power, thank you very much.
Logic and Reason is all you need.

And just because he doesn't have the same beliefs as you doesn't make him ignorant. He's not even trying to force his beliefs on anyone, he's simply stating what he believes and saying that tolerance is both sides alowing the other side to believe what they do and not look down on the other side.
So basically you fit perfect in his definition of intolerant, and I think I would probably have to agree.

Yeah, the OT laws are meaningless, then show me this "New covenant" and show me the laws within it.
Show me where Jesus said ANYTHING on homosexuality.....actually, here is something interesting Jesus said about the old laws:
Matthew 5:17 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them."
Right and wrongs don't work that way....it's too bad many christians don't get that.
Furthermore, he's incorrect for saying he's tolerant of Jason Collins lifestyle while at the same time believing he's sinful.
Look at my example about murder.

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality"
Now show me a scripture that tells me to not shave the sides of my hair.

For someone who claims not to follow the Bible you sure do quote it on here CONSTANTLY.Funny how you need the Bible to prove almost every point on here you make.
As for Chris Broussard he made a statement based on his beliefs.I might not agree with it but he presented it in a respectful way.So now I ask and of course the backlash will follow but is the problem Broussard and his beliefs or is it something else that bothers people??"Sell crazy someplace else, we're all stocked up here".
