ON JASON COLLINS’ ANNOUNCEMENT THAT HE IS GAY

Well, Jason Collins of the Washington Wizards came out as a gay man on the cover of Sports Illustrated.  The many in the press have excitedly reported on, as if he has done some great thing. He is the “First major league player to come out as gay,” they gush.  He  is hailed as “brave” for doing so. The first lady also praised him for coming out.  I don’t know how much bravery it takes to come out  as  gay, since we live in a society in which homosexuality is looked upon as “normal,” and heterosexuality is swiftly becoming the “abnormal.”  In the meantime,  ESPN’s Chris Broussard is getting flack online after he called homosexuality a “sin” during a Monday episode of Outside the Lines.  Well, my hat is off to  him.  It is shame that America has gotten to the point where a reporter comes under fire for telling the truth, and an athlete is hailed as “brave,” for coming out as gay.  Paul writes in  1 Corintians 6:9-11, “Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”  If that doesn’t make it clear that homosexuality is a sin , then how much could have the apostle made it any  clearer?  But having said that, Paul continued to  say, “And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”  There is hope for the homosexual!
