This week, Rush Limbaugh has been discussing NBA player Jason Collins coming out as a homosexual and the controversy -- and praise -- that have surrounded him. There seems to be a lot of support for the basketball player, but not so much for those who oppose his lifestyle.

One who's been ruffling some feathers is ESPN journalist Chris Broussard.

During EPSN's "Outside The Lines" show this week, Broussard discussed Collins' recent coming out and provided his take on homosexuality.

"Living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits, it says that, you know, that's a sin . . . I believe that's walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ," Broussard said.

Limbaugh questioned the criticism of Broussard's religious views.

"Isn't that the whole point of freedom? Isn't tolerance tolerating people that disagree with you," asked Limbaugh. "So Jason Collins comes out, and he's gay, and whoever publicly doesn't sign on to it has to be silenced, may be punished, fired, penalized."
