    Interesting juxtaposition for a presumed non-Christian: “the sin of adultery and sex outside of marriage” against the “alleged sin of homosexuality.”

    Anyway, a blanket statement concerning Christians in a tu quoque appeal to hypocrisy is something I've grown accustomed to in discussions I've had over the years on this topic. It hasn't stopped failing as a logical argument. I asked a specific question concerning a specific individual and yet you responded with broad generalities that have no basis in logic or fact. A lot of people call themselves Christians. Some are gay and are probably hypocrites, too, under your definition, unless they think adultery or anything else isn't a sin and they live otherwise perfect lives.

    But it's the last part of your sentence that's most remarkable in the way it throws a chill on religious freedom. Personally, I don't judge gays, but neither do I judge Chris Broussard or his motives, and I'll defend his right to give his opinion on the topic without facing retribution or being branded a bigot.

    There's still a big problem with homophobia in sports, wonderfully reflected by ESPN hiring douches like this. I'm for free speech in practice though, not just in theory. I don't think he should be punished, but to answer your question, yes he's a bigot.

    Here's another case of a loose ad hominem characterization of a person not really based on fact. How is Broussard a homophobe? Supposedly, he and (the openly gay) LZ Granderson are friends.

    “In the current culture, it takes more courage for someone like Chris Broussard to speak out"

    He probably doesn't listen to talk radio a lot
    or watch any of the 5,000 Sunday TV shows about how bad zee homoz are,
    or attend any of the 50,000 Protestant churches in America,
    or listen to any of the 100 or so outspoken anti-gay members of congress
    or live/work/attend in any of the hundreds of small towns, high schools and job places where being gay can get you lynched, fired, discriminated against bullied or tormented.

    -----

    Yeah Chris, I'm sure being a blatant homophobic prick in a country where there are 150,000,000 people who put away race, nationality and social status in order to stand against people of a different sexuality is incredibly hard.

    Don't ask if he's a bigot and then flip out if i say yes. You obviously aren't open to a real debate on this. Also, this happened months ago and was likely discussed months ago. Not sure how to take this thread seriously.

    Flip out, eh? I was referring to your reference of Broussard as a homophobe. I don't see it. That's all. Maybe your definition of the word varies from the mainstream. I can see that.

    Really? How so? So far I've seen a lot of name calling but little in the way of justifying it. I'm all ears. Anyway, I came across the topic, did a search of the forums, and didn't see it discussed previously. I thought it relevant and worth discussion. Apparently, you did, too, to the degree you've posted twice in the thread. But if you don't take it seriously you're welcome to move along and continue your ranting in the sex forum, which I usually avoid because people tend to repeat themselves so much, high-fiving each other while gang-banging anyone who doesn't agree with their point of view.

    You're about eight years behind, my friend. Eisner left in 2005. Disney's now run by Bob Iger.

    To cite only some actions as being contrary to their personal interpretation of the "word of God", but to ignore others is far too much hypocracy for me to accept as being religion alone. Tiger Woods has sinned far more than any gay person "comming out" has, yet I bet this moron considers that "common" sin to have been forgiven.
    That's just kind of a bad argument.

    I don't believe the (Catholic) Church should be so antagonistic toward the gay community but we also need to step back and recognize most of the discussion was brought about by a very vocal gay community.

    I like Broussard. He knows his stuff. I'm more against guys like Kevin Blackistone, a man that I'd love to drill in his smug racist face.
    Why would he need reprimand if he said it on air? Free speech?
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
