Should Chris Broussard be suspended from ESPN

It seems that intolerance has become a normal response from the homosexual and or atheist community concerning the freedom of speech exercised by Christians in calling sin, sin. When a Christian, no matter what field of work they are in, state that certain things are sinful, then those who claim that Christians are intolerant bigots, actually show their true colors.

Atheists and homosexuals do not want the same rights as Christians or married couples, but instead would rather have special rights. They want to be able to silence everyone who disagrees with them, while at the same time speaking whatsoever they desire. In this they show that they are the true intolerant, bigots.

Chris Broussard, an employee of ESPN, can’t come out and freely state what he believes about homosexuality, but an athlete, movie star, musician, etc…. can freely state that they are homosexual without anyone making a big fuss about it, including those within the Christian community. In other words, Christians are not the ones who try to silence and violate the free speech of atheists or homosexuals, but instead the shoe is on the other foot.

Before I introduce this article from CP Entertainment, I want to plainly declare that an atheist is a fool for denying that God exist, even to the extent that he claims to be rational, while not using reason Psalms 53:1. On the other side we have homosexuals claiming to be born with desires for members of the same sex, but Leviticus 18:22 is plain that this type relationship is an abomination before God. So both Atheists and Homosexuals are committing sin against their Creator.

Here is a portion of the article concerning Chris Broussard:

 

Chris Broussard should be suspended from ESPN, according to over 20,000 Americans who signed a petition helmed by a religious organization.

Broussard, the 44-year-old ESPN analyst, recently sparked a debate when he spoke out against the NBA’s first active player to admit that he was a homosexual, Jason Collins. While Collins, 34, spoke about being gay and Christian in Sports Illustrated magazine recently and in follow-up interviews, Broussard appeared on ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” to say the NBA player claiming to be Christian was glorifying a lifestyle that contradicted biblical teachings.

Faithful America, a online religious community that promotes left-wing agendas, does not agree with Broussard’s stance. The community is calling for ESPN to suspend Broussard and created a petition called “Tell ESPN: Don’t Use The Bible to Gay Bash Athletes” which over 22,000 people signed on faithfulamerica.org.

    The left is so blind to their own hypocrisy. I thank God for Mr. Broussard’s boldness for speaking the truth.

      You are correct about the left wing liberals. I thank God for his boldness too.

    I am a liberal in social matters and I am a Pentecostal Christian. I believe Homosexuality is a sin (Romans 1:24-32), as I do any sex outside of the confines of marriage. The blanket labeling of liberals as one way or another is ignorant, just as it is to call all conservatives racists or bigots just because of Pat Buchanan, Shawn Hannity or Rush Limbaugh. These individuals tolerate people of color and those who do not serve their opinion.
    I appreciate Chris Broussard for his forthrightness and wisdom with which he characterized the “Biblical Sin” that it represents. These folks are still deserving of human rights and civil rights even if we ADAMANTLY disagree with same sex marriage.

      Thank you for your comment.

      I want to state that you are a liberal in social matters by your own admission. Where do you get this position from scripture?

      Secondly, you claim that people DESERVE human and civil rights. But according to scripture all men deserve nothing but God’s wrath and eternity in Hell. If we are saved and escape this judgment it is because God is gracious and not because we deserve God’s favor.

      Also if people deserve human and civil rights, then where do these rights come from? No man has the right, according to God’s word, to kill another. Nevertheless, the right for two people of the same sex to marry is not given by God.

      If you support two people of the same sex rights to marry, where will you draw the line? If society supports this, where will society draw the line? Will lying with animals and children also be supported by you and society?

      Finally, I want to state that you defended homosexuals rights to do as they please because you claim they deserve it. Nevertheless, you claim to be a Christian, but did not defend the right of Broussard to speak what God says about the sin of homosexuality. You only stated that you appreciate his words. Broussard was speaking God’s word, but you my friend defend the sinner.

        And as usual, my commenters never get a second comment because instead of upholding God’s word, they resort to name calling and rudeness.

      • May 13, 2013 at 5:22 am

        Again I shall restate that any rights we have come from God. Since the government and government offices are ordained of God, per Romans 13, then it is their duty to legislate according to what God has commanded.

        Since men are corrupt and these corrupt men are going to hold office, then government will become corrupt.

        Finally since men have not retained God in their knowledge, but have suppressed the truth, then God has given them over to homosexuality, per Romans 1. Does this mean that they are still obligated to keep God’s commmands? Yes. They are still obligated and shall be held responsible.

        Now if homosexuals have the right to marry according to civil law, according to my commenter, then why don’t I have a right to speak God’s word on a blog, without being called names by those who claim to be Christian?

        Those who read this must realize that my commenters second comment did not make it up.

      • May 13, 2013 at 8:33 am

        If you comment on this blog, recognize that I hold to a Biblical Worldview. In other words, God’s word defines what is right in every situation. God’s word also defines what rights we hold underneath any human government, whether moral or civil.

        According to my commenter above, women have no rights in a Muslim country because Muslim governments say so. Also Christians should have no rights because Islam is the state religion in these countries.

        Yet he supports the fact that homosexuals ought to have the right to marry. My position is not a legalistic, Pharisee mind set, but a Biblical position. God commands, in his word, that a man ought to leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife; not his husband.
