Bryan Fischer dedicated a segment on his radio program today to once again discussing the news that Jason Collins has become the first active NBA player to announce that he is gay. And Fischer is unimpressed, to say the least, saying that Collins is a free agent at the end of his career with no real prospects of playing again next season and so he thought this was a good opportunity for himself to garner some attention for himself and make money.
“Everybody is talking about how brave and courageous Jason Collins is and I’m going to submit to you that he’s not being brave and courageous at all,” Fischer declared. “This is just a shrewd marketing move to wave the rainbow flag right at the time when it can be of the most benefit to him. A year from now, when he’s been out of the NBA for a year, nobody is going to care. This is the only time this would be of any benefit to him … This is why this is not courageous; he’s become a hero to the deviancy cabal and their allies in the political world and academia and the media, like President Obama”:
