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

Watson

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.


U.S. PGA Golfer Brandt Snedeker Says He'd Welcome Openly Gay Player: VIDEO

In an interview with golf show host David Feherty, professional American golfer Brandt Snedeker said that he assumes the Professional Golf Association already has a gay player in it and that he’d welcome any player who decided to come out as gay.

"I don't think a gay golfer is going to be that big of a deal," Snedeker said. "It's not going to affect my life in any way, shape or form. If there is one, I welcome him to come out if he's comfortable doing it. I think it's a personal decision they need to make on their own."

He continued, “The courage this young man [football player Michael Sam] showed to come out the way he did, in a sport that is kinda anti-that [gay], I think is encouraging for everybody to take a stand for something they believe in strongly.”

Homophobia persists even in golf. Over the past few years, a University of Minnesota golf coach was allegedly fired for being a lesbian and an anonymous anti-gay golfer launched a ball bearing a homophobic message through the window of a congregant who attended a church with an openly gay pastor.

It should also be noted that though the PGA has no openly gay male players, the Ladies Professional Golf Association has several openly lesbian players including Rosie Jones.
