Bubba Watson Wins 2014 Masters, Thinks Being Gay is a Sin


PGA Golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with a family dinner at Waffle House after winning the 2014 Masters tournament for the second time in three years over the weekend.

Outsports reminds us that he would have dinner with gay 'sinners' too, in a recollection of comments he made about Jason Collins last year:

"I've met Jason, said, ‘Hey,' to him, because he used to play for the Suns when I had the Suns tickets. I respect anybody that's gay ... I'm not saying I'm better than others. I'm not saying he's wrong. I'm saying I love him. If he called me right now and said, ‘Hey,' or any person that was gay called me, I'd go to dinner with them any time. It's just my belief system on the Bible says you can't be gay. That's a sin. So somebody living in sin I believe to be wrong."

There are no openly gay golfers in the PGA. Thankfully there are some players, like Brandt Snedeker, with more evolved perspectives.

  4. "Celebrates with a family dinner at the Waffle House".

    THAT pretty much wraps it up, folks.

  5. I like him because he reminds me of my dad, who also thinks being gay is a sin! Tank's just keeping it real.

  6. Other sins of the Bible:
    Wearing blended fabric (most golf clothes)
    Working on the Sabbath (that would be Saturday)
    Cutting the hair around your temples (sideburns don't count)

    See ya in Hell, Bubba.

  10. Insert any other category in exchange for "gay" and read this again. Try Jewish, Muslim, Black, Asian, Fat, Skinny, etc.
    This man is so caught up in his silly faith that he can't just be honest. I'm not even suggesting he doesn't like gays. I wouldn't be surprised if he likes us -- but because of his faith he has to qualify it. It's so dumb. Religion makes people act in ways they'd never act. It's not an honest representation of themselves.

  11. How could anyone take seriously, anything said by a guy named "Bubba"?

  13. Let's face it, he's considered the "great white trash hope" of pro golf. It's not surprising he has these attitudes. IIRC, he comes from some north Florida backwater.

  14. He's overweight but apparently his gluttony isn't a Biblical problem for him.

  15. "It's just my belief system on the Bible says you can't be gay. "

    What about slavery, Bubba? Bible's pretty clear on it...

  16. Yes what do you expect from a guy named Bubba?!

  17. What a stupid ignorant little man!

  18. What he seems to be saying is that he doesn't mind being around gays, but his official position is that is that same-sex sexual activity is a sin.

    Maybe his mom actually believes their Bible-thumping preacher and he can placate her by saying same-sex sexual activity is a sin but can also quote the part of the Bible about Jesus hanging out with tax collectors and sinners and partying with them:

    Mathew 11:19
    The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is proved right by her deeds.”

    So, "Bubba" can then ask his mom, "what would Jesus do?" You can argue about the theology, but it would probably shut her up.

    BTW, maybe he went to a "Waffle House" because the crew wasn't presentable anywhere else. Think "Beverly Hillbillies". To decide, someone will have to see where he goes when he doesn't have his family along with him.
