The Jason Collins Story: When Is The Ticker Tape Parade?


Just a thought on the Jason Collins story. I’m not denying it took some guts to come out as gay when you’re a professional sports player but let’s also get a little perspective here. Polls in America now show a majority of Americans support gay marriage (53%) and 54% think being gay is morally acceptable behavior. So it’s not like Jason Collins is in the minority of public opinion. He’s actually now among the majority in this country! It would have been one thing if he had done this a few years ago but now? C’mon. What he did is so “chic” right? We are told it’s now ok to be gay right? It’s hip! We’ve got NBA players commending him today not shunning him. Where is the adversity? He's being treated as a hero by most people not an outcast.

So while I understand that when you’re the first to do something you get a lot of attention, let’s be real here. Jason Collins came out as gay at a time in American culture when it is relatively safe to do so. It’s the thing to do! Excuse me if I don’t attend the Ticker Tape Parade on this.

It's not the public that this man should be concerned with. It is almighty God. Why would someone discuss their sex life in public unless they have an agenda? They really want us to approve of their lifestyle and no real Christian would do so. We love them but don't accept their behavior.

Homosexuality is not deserving of the approbation of man.

They wear their shame like a banner, promote destructive behaviors even when there's no cure for their diseases. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. Many will follow their evil example and shameful immorality. And because of this, the way of truth will be slandered. But God condemned such as they long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed. For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell, in gloomy pits of darkness  where they are being held until the day of judgment. God did not spare the ancient world—except for Noah and the seven others in his family. Noah warned the world of God's righteous judgment. God protected Noah when he destroyed the world of ungodly people with a vast flood. Later, God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and turned them into heaps of ashes. He made them an example of what will happen to such ungodly people.
