A lot of people are speaking out on the recent announcement by veteran NBA player Jason Collins that he is a homosexual. Kobe Bryant tweeted his encouragement to Collins, urging him to stand against “the ignorance of others”. Martina Navratilova gushed, “This was the first thing I thought: This is going to save some kids’ lives.” Another homosexual basketball player, John Amaechi said, “We are unusually blessed to have such an eloquent spokesperson.”
Let’s examine these comments. Kobe says that those who refuse to accept homosexuality are ignorant. This is an indictment of all people who believe the Bible, which clearly and consistently denounces homosexual behavior. It is Kobe’s position that lacks wisdom.
Martina says that lives will be saved by the promotion of homosexuality. Gods says that all sexual immorality leads to destruction, not salvation.
Amaechi says that homosexuals are blessed. Scripture says otherwise.
Is there no voice of reason to speak out against these irreverent and illogical proclamations?
Wait a minute! ESPN analyst Chris Broussard has a different opinion on this issue. He says: “I’m a Christian. I don’t agree with homosexuality. I think it’s a sin, as I think all sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is…If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be…that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ.”
I’m glad somebody got it right.
