    OK. But Broussard covers sport, home of the illicit relationship. I don't recall him condemning any of the numerous athletes who've been outed as adulterers on biblical grounds or even mentioning there plights.  

    As far as that goes, most pastors, no, I won't say most because I don't think the author should either, but many are using their power in the church to commit adultery with female parishioners. That's a common meme, too, in the African-American church.

    The article is kind of a back handed note of, yeah, tolerance.

      of adulterers in sport by ranting about NBA Hall-of-Famer Calvin Murphy, who at last count had 14 illegitimate children by 9 women.  Murphy, by the way, has a talk show on ESPN Radio.

      When ESPN was praising superstar linebacker Ray Lewis upon his retirement after this year's Super Bowl, they seemed to omit the fact that he has at least six kids with four different women.

      For a much-outdated list of famous athletes with illegitimate children, see

      It seems to me that fathering multiple children with multiple women and then ignoring them is a much bigger sin than loving someone of the same sex, but then again, what do I know.  I don't have a contract with ESPN.
