Bubba Watson supports Broussard's comments on Jason Collins
Bubba Watson stands behind what ESPN's Chris Broussard said Monday about gay NBA player Jason Collins.
On Monday, after NBA player Jason Collins revealed to Sports Illustrated that he is a gay athlete, Chris Broussard of ESPN had some commentary that has been pretty heavily picked apart by many members of the sports media.
"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.
"I believe that's walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I do not think the Bible would characterize them as a Christian."
2012 Master champion Bubba Watson responded Tuesday to Broussard's thoughts on Twitter:
Watson is one of the most outspoken Christians on the PGA Tour and hasn't shied away in the past from a good controversial topic. This one on homosexuality seems to be no different.
