    This should help break down the homophobic attitude in the sports world and the rest of the country. What would really help change the attitude in America is for a NASCAR driver to come out next.

    I would like to commend the reporter for ESPN, who had the courage to speak the truth about his beliefs as a Christian, concerning the Collins story. We as Christians in this country tend to lay low and not speak out about the truth, as we see it, and as God teaches us. The Bible clearly teaches that homosexuality is a sin, and it seems these days, the media glamourizes and flaunts its opinions on others. We as Christians love the homosexual community, just as God loves them, but we cannot love the sin. As a Christian who believes that the Bible is the word of God, have to believe every word of it, not just the parts we want to believe. It's time more Christians stand up as Chris did on ESPN. The media is not the only ones who have an opinion on this subject.

    The Bible also says that eating shellfish, wearing mixed fabrics, and working on Sundays are sins. I know you have done all of those things, Susan. How dare you try to feed everyone else your bullshit?
    Stand up? Stand up to what? Nobody's forcing anybody to be gay, moron.
    You understand that the media isn't just one being, right? Bill Maher has different opinions than Glenn Beck. Not every TV personality comes to the same conclusion about everything.
