Former Super Bowl winning NFL Quarterback Drew Brees is getting hammered by the fake news media for his Christian beliefs, as his participation in a public service announcement for Focus on the Family (FoF) has sparked this week’s leftist outrage du joir.
Brees, a future hall of famer who plays for the New Orleans Saints, appeared in a video produced by FoF promoting “Bring Your Bible to School Day” for October 3. The secular Left, desperate to keep the truth of God out of the public square, has Brees set in their sights over his participation in this event meant for students to share their wholesome beliefs with their colleagues.
“One of my favorite verses in the Bible is 2 Corinthians 5:7: ‘For we live by faith, not by sight.’ So I want to encourage you to live out your faith on ‘Bring Your Bible to School Day,’ and share God’s love with friends. You’re not alone,” Brees said in a video posted on FoF’s Facebook page.
Brees’ participation in this video has triggered far-left extremists, who are castigating Brees for associating with an organization that refuses to bow to the LGBT agenda.
“What is surprising is the anti-bullying advocate‘s support of a religious group known to be one of the most well funded anti-LGBT organizations in the country,” wrote Big Easy Magazine in a blog. They are leading a hashtag campaign against him on Twitter, urging others to post the hashtags #SaintsDontHate and #IsitTrueDrew to shame the all-time football great.
FoF has opposed the legalization of gay marriage since its founding in 1977. The organization’s founder, popular evangelical James Dodson, has said that “same-sex relationships undermine the future generation’s understanding of the fundamental principles of marriage, parenthood and gender.”
In recent years, the mainstreaming of child abuse in the form of LGBT education at public schools and predatory grooming operations at public libraries have shown that Dodson’s fears were more than justified. The accuracy of Dodson’s prognostications hasn’t stopped him from being labeled a hate monger by critics.
Brees has not responded to the criticism with a public statement. He has been an evangelical Christian throughout his entire adult life and owes his personal and professional success to his acceptance of Jesus Christ as his savior.
“I remember sitting in church on my 17th birthday,” he said in an interview with a Christian sports page. “I was locked in on the pastor as he was talking about how the Lord was looking for a few good men to carry on His Kingdom, to spread His Word, and to live the life that He had planned for them, and that spoke to me.”
“I accepted Jesus Christ in my heart and knew that there was something bigger planned for me than just sports,” he added.
The vicious fake news media and the anti-Christian socialist movement they represent will not stop until every believer in Jesus Christ is subjugated, and maybe even imprisoned, for sharing their beliefs.
Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags
Why were they even suspended?
Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.
Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.
The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.
College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
