First and foremost, kudos to Jason Collins. Hoping for all the courage and success in his life. Power to him!
Here's what I think about the whole Chris Broussard situation. Of course he is entitled to his own opinion. He is allowed to say what he feels (unless he is a true idiot about it). But what irks me is that there are other things in the Bible that are said to be a sin as well right? Having so much money, all those tattoos on the players, working on Sundays (like someone said previously), adultery, children out of wedlock. Right? Yet the moment someone comes out that is when Chris all of a sudden says it's a sin. So the inks on skin is okay? Yet loving another man is a sin?
He (Jason) is brave, because even though so many people are more liberal and open minded these days, it's still scary for them.
Some of you are saying how once the opinion is directed against "being gay", then the person is ultimately shunned and how that's not okay.
Let's also look at Mark Jackson's comment. I don't really understand the context but he said that he is praying for Jason and his family. Yet...when he cheated on his wife, he was a true Christian. All jibber jabber.
Sure you're right on the fact that they should have their own opinion, such as Chris and Mark. But they are letting some things roll of their back while being gay is ultimately a sin to them. That makes most of their opinions end up to be hypocritically because to them everything is okay (even if it may be against the bible) but once you're gay, that's when it's a sin.
That's the only part that irks me. Just don't be a hypocrite.
Once again, kudos to Jason.
Let's hope for equality and peace for every one.
