It's almost worse to try and backtrack on things you obviously believe, because it's easily apparent that you're only doing it because of the flak you've gotten. It's kind of offensive to assume we wouldn't notice exactly what you're doing!
Chris Broussard is doing exactly all that as he called into the radio show The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 to explain his comments about Jason Collins being gay and to backtrack a little bit! While he still rattles off everything he's read in the Bible (at length), he's also trying to make it clear that he loves everyone and doesn't look down on a single person, even if it might seem like it.
It's worth a listen (above) as he tries to explain himself, and to hear the host liken the whole situation to a white guy saying he 'isn't racist' because he has black friends!
We can't really get into religion here, because everyone is entitled to their beliefs. We CAN get into going into a religious tirade on ESPN when they aren't asking for your personal religious opinions! This interview is different because he's asked specifically about his personal beliefs — we just wish when he was being paid to talk about sports, he would talk about sports!
Easy enough! LOLz!
