    In case you missed it, here’s Chris Broussard going off on Jason Collins’s announcement that he’s gay.

    “Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle, or an openly premarital sex between heterosexuals,” Broussard said Monday on ESPN’s “Outside The Lines.” “If you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, the Bible says you know them by their fruits, it says that’s a sin. … I believe that is walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ.”

    It’s not the first time Broussard has ventured into these waters. In an April 2009 ESPN story he had this to say:

    I’m a born-again, Bible-believing Christian (no, I’m not a member of the Religious Right). And I’m against homosexuality (I believe it’s a sin) and same-sex marriage.

    But before you label me “homophobic,” know that I’m against any type of sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman. That includes heterosexual fornication (premarital sex).

    Some cats in the NBA run around, sleeping with different women in every city — I don’t agree with their lifestyles.

    Some players run around, cheating on their wives — I don’t agree with their lifestyles.

    It’s all wrong to me and against the biblical teachings I believe in.
