Broussard, speaking on ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” said that he would “not characterize (Collins) as a Christian.”

“Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly, like premarital sex between heterosexuals. If you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits. It says that, you know, that’s a sin. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, whatever it maybe, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ.

“So I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I don’t think the bible would characterize them as a Christian.”
