Video: ESPN's Chris Broussard doubles down on saying Jason Collins is in 'open rebellion to God'; 'I don't have a problem with the way I articulated it'

by Jeremy Hooper

ESPN commentator Chris Broussard made national headlines when he claimed that openly gay basketball player Jason Collins is living "in open rebellion to God." Now listen to him continue to claim he simply "disagrees" with Collins and that his condemnation is simply "diversity of opinion":

It's so annoying the way that one host claims (around 7:14) that people were trying to shut down Broussard's opinion. No! Did someone shut Broussard's mic? Did a government body prevent his TV appearance from going out over the airwaves? No and no! People PUSHED BACK against the commentator's opinion, thus expressing their own opinion that Broussard was wrong. Scrutiny is not silencing! And in fact, it's this wacky idea that "freedom of speech" means freedom from resistance that is truly undermining debate in this country.
