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.
Conservative-Friendly Sports Writer Jason Whitlock: First Woman to Play in Power Five College Football Game a “Make-A-Wish” Publicity Stunt
The voice of reason.
Jason Whitlock, a former ESPN and Fox Sports writer and current OutKick columnist, did not hold back in his criticism of the Sarah Fuller publicity stunt and the subsequent reaction that called her a “hero” and a “trailblazer.”
Sarah Fuller is a goalie for the Vanderbilt University women’s soccer team. But Vanderbilt’s football team, already having a dreadful enough of a season as it is, at one point did not have a kicker going into Saturday’s contest against Missouri—because of, you guessed it, COVID-19. So they turned to Fuller and added her to the roster, thus making her the first woman to ever play in a Power Five college football game. (Power Five refers to the sport’s five major conferences: the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC. Vanderbilt is an SEC team.)
Her only appearance in the game—which Vanderbilt lost 41-0—featured her squib kicking the ball to Missouri’s 37-yard line at the beginning of the second half and dashing to the sideline. That’s it.
So it was only a matter of time before Whitlock, who does not describe himself as conservative but is clearly conservative-friendly, bashed the virtue-signaling surrounding Fuller’s appearance.
“Sarah Fuller briefly made football socially acceptable for America’s most ardent virtue-signalers. That was her primary accomplishment, pleasing Make A Wish America,” Whitlock wrote. “I don’t believe she played football. She scored a point in the culture war.”
Whitlock acknowledges that Fuller is an elite athlete, given that she plays goalie for a Division 1 soccer team which just won its conference championship last week and is heading for the NCAA Tournament in the spring, but says that putting her in this situation only diminishes female athletes.
“I don’t blame Sarah Fuller. She’s an accomplished, high-level Division 1 athlete. She’s a soccer goalie for the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team. She’s been baited into believing competing against men is her North star. Maybe it is. It shouldn’t be,” he wrote.
He added: “Sarah Fuller is an elite soccer player. She’s a terrible football player, arguably the worst to ever take the field in the SEC. The announcers during the game said [Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason] wasn’t comfortable using her [to] kick field goals unless they were inside the 15-yard line. There were pictures of her warming up in pregame kicking 14-yard field goals. Her athleticism does not need to be validated by competing against men in any capacity, let alone in a sport that is not her specialty.”
Whitlock also attacked “culture warriors” for hailing Fuller as “Jackie Robinson 2.0” and spending tons of money to prop up women as the athletic equals of men.
“There’s a lot of money being spent to create the illusion that women can and should be playing football against men. The people spending the money hate football. It epitomizes ‘toxic masculinity’… except when women are on the field. Football should also be shuttered because of the head trauma dangers… unless women are playing. Oh, and during this COVID pandemic, it’s irresponsible for these Power 5 schools to exploit these college athletes… unless there’s a woman playing.”
Read Whitlock’s entire op-ed here. Thank God the sports writing world has at least one voice who can speak the truth like this. As someone who used to write about sports myself, I’m well aware that there are far too few Whitlocks in the profession.
