A Christian Response to Jason Collins
In case you were not aware, the sports world was in a buzz yesterday when Jason Collins came out to admit that he is gay. The reason this is big news is that Collins is the first active sports athlete in the major sports (NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL) to come out and admit his sexual preference. ESPN interviewed many people, but among them was Chris Broussard. He is a NBA analyst, but also a Christian. The entire interview is really interesting, but the heated part of the discussion starts about the 9:00 minute mark. Broussard's response to Collins admission to being gay and a Christian was spot on and very helpful. Christian's should learn from him, but also pray for him. I have a feeling that things could get really tough for Broussard in the coming weeks.
