NFL Declares War On Christianity With New Collective Bargaining Agreement Forbidding Players To Attend Church Services Above 25% Capacity

A deal reached by the National Football League and the NFL Players Association bans players from attending any indoor church services above 25% capacity.

NFL teams may “rely on contacts within the community to contact the team if/when violations are witnessed,” or even use a tip line. In other words, members of the community would be encouraged to report players they see trying to attend church.

Last year, bragging in an interview on the popularity of football in America, NFL head Roger Goodell smugly stated that the Super Bowl had become a national holiday, implying it was ‘bigger than Christmas’. Here is 2020, Goodell is overseeing a COVID ban on NFL players attending church in groups larger than 25% of the seating capacity. Players who violate this ban and attend church risk huge fines and suspension. Roger Goodell is totally fine, however, with football players attending Black Lives Matter riots in as large a number as they please. Ten thousand protesters jammed in a space with the majority unmasked? No problem!

“And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.” Acts 20:7 (KJB)

“Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.” 1 Corinthians 16:1,2 (KJB)

The early church met on the first day of the week for worship services, for fellowship, and for collecting the funds and gifts necessary for its operation. What the bible calls the first day of the week, we here in the 21st century refer to as Sunday. Sunday is also the day that the NFL has claimed for its own, the congregation are football fans, and their church buildings are sports stadiums. Football is the largest religion in America, and it has just declared war on Christians.

The NFL Just Declared War On Church

FROM THE FEDERALIST: A deal reached by the National Football League and the NFL Players Association bans players from attending any indoor church services that are above 25 percent capacity, multiple sources told NBC Sports on Saturday.

Alongside its restrictions on attending worship services, the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) also prohibits players from attending indoor nightclubs and bars (except for take-out), indoor concerts, professional sports games, and indoor parties that include 15 or more people. The deal has not been publicly released, but NBC Sports made no mention of any restrictions on attending protests. Meanwhile, the NFL’s Twitter account has been sharing and celebrating pictures of players engaging in protests around the country.

A June 5 tweet from the NFL also affirmed that “We, the NFL…encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest.”

As with more typical CBAs, players can face fines if they don’t comply with the restrictions on church and the other activities listed. The fines for each offense can vary, and while they haven’t been revealed for this agreement, violating the CBA used to regulate conduct on the field can result in fines from $5,000 to over $70,000.

NBC Sports also reported that players who test positive for COVID-19 after violating the CBA won’t be paid for games they aren’t able to attend. They would also forego any future guarantees made in their contracts.

If players do violate the rules, NBC Sports speculates that teams may “rely on contacts within the community to contact the team if/when violations are witnessed,” or even use a tip line. In other words, members of the community would be encouraged to report players they see trying to attend church. Other ideas suggested by NBC include tracking players or stationing officials at “local establishments,” potentially including players’ houses of worship. READ MORE

As If You Needed Another Reason To Stop Watching Professional Football, The NFL Has Begun The Process Of Hiring Transgender Cheerleaders

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The first openly transgender cheerleader has joined NFL team the Carolina Panthers– a “big” moment that she says she hopes will inspire others on and off the gridiron.

Some years back, as a then lifelong Steelers fan, I stopped watching the NFL because it went from being a fun game to watch to being a preachy, woke, and vaguely anti-American experience. So with the exception of watching the last few games that Ben Roethlisberger played in, I have not watched the NFL in about 3 years. Now that they have transgender cheerleaders, I am thinking about coming back just so I can make a statement by quitting again.

“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:” Romans 1:24 (KJB)

As Christians, we are called to preach the gospel of the grace of God and to be a witness to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ according to the scriptures. Since a large percentage of people who watch the NFL are Christian, I think it would be great if they all stopped supporting the NFL as they careen forward into this new woke business model. For those of you who have read my testimony of how I got saved, you know that it was the witness of the people who held up those John 3:16 signs back in the 1970’s and ’80’s during NFL games that played a large part in me getting saved. So for that I am grateful. But that was then, this is now, and it’s a whole new ball game.

Carolina Panthers hire first openly transgender cheerleader in the NFL

FROM THE NY POST: Justine Lindsay, 29, said in an interview Saturday that she’s proud to “break down that door” for future trans athletes by joining the cheerleading squad for the Carolina Panthers’ TopCats.

“This is big,” she told BuzzFeed News. “I think more people need to see this. It’s not because I want recognition. It’s just to shed light on what’s going on in the world.”

Lindsay first publicly came out as trans when she announced on Instagram that she was joining the Panthers squad in March.

“Cats out the bag,” Lindsay’s post read. “I would like to thank the beautiful and talented dancers who supported me along the way … This is a moment I will never forget and I cannot wait to show you all what this girl has to bring.”

She said she was terrified to come out as trans online after keeping her gender identity a secret from even her best friend, whom she considers to be like a sister.

“I was so scared,” she told the outlet of the post. “There’s just some things you can’t post.”

“I just felt like when I posted it, whatever reaction I get from, everyone, it doesn’t matter,” Lindsay continued. “And then my phone started blowing up.”

Though Lindsay indicated she was transgender on her application, TopCats director Chandalae Lanouette said it was her skill as a cheerleader that got her on the team. READ MORE

Shock As NFL Will Mandate The Playing Of The ‘Black National Anthem’ At All Events And Will ‘Encourage All Players To Protest’ Against The United States

The National Football League is preparing to roll out even more social justice messaging in the 2021 season and will also make the ‘black national anthem’ a prominent part of all major league events.

According to a report, the National Football League is preparing to roll out even more social justice messaging in the 2021 season and will also make the ‘black national anthem’ a prominent part of all major league events.

Up to a few years ago, I was a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan, having watched since the early 1970’s, but all that changed when the ‘new NFL’ came into existence. In this new regime, millionaire crybaby footballers who make obscene fortunes for throwing and catching a ball are allowing to disrespect, malign and insult the nation that made them rich and famous. 2021 will be my third season where I will watch not one, single minute of play of any game played at any time.

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus” Galatians 3:26 (KJB)

What the NFL is doing is not ‘fighting racism’, they are in fact fostering and spreading racism by their actions. Think about it, 3 out of every 4 football players in the NFL are black or brown, with only 1 out of every 4 white. When it was more white people than black people, they said that was racist, but now that there are more blacks than whites they still aren’t happy. Does anyone else find that odd? It’s only odd until you realize why these things are happening. It has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with power and control.

I have taken my old Steelers jersey and shirts to Goodwill, and bid a fond good riddance to the National Social Football Justice League. I will not and cannot support you on any level.

NFL to Increase Social Justice Messaging, Play ‘Black National Anthem’ at Major Events

FROM BREITBART NEWS: A source recently told Front Office Sports that the NFL is “bringing back a lot of [social justice] elements from last year,” including helmet decals with left-wing messages, sideline signage, and the playing of the song “Lift Ev’ry Voice and sing” — the purported “black national anthem” — major events.

The source told Front Office that the 2021 social justice effort may even be bigger than previous campaigns.

For one, there will be more slogans such as this below:

The themes for some of the campaigns this year includes, “It Takes All of Us,” “End Racism,” and “Inspire Change.”

It isn’t clear if every TV partner will broadcast the playing of the national anthem — which will be followed this season by “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” — but Front Office noted that at least NBC has agreed to air both songs. The NFL insider added that it will impose the “black national anthem” on all special events such as the Super Bowl, the playoffs, the draft and other such special broadcasts.

The source also said that going forward all players will be free to protest against the U.S.A. in any way they choose, as long as it is a “peaceful protest.”

Front Office added that it is possible the flood of social justice protests and messages harmed the league’s TV ratings:

At the height of player protests during the 2016-17 seasons, the league’s once impregnable TV audiences plummeted 8% and 10% respectively.

As the protests receded, the NFL’s TV audiences bounced back to grow 5% apiece during the 2018-2019 seasons.

But average audiences fell 8% to 15.1 million viewers in 2020 as the league embraced social justice messaging on helmets, warm-up gear, fields and stadiums.

With the pandemic in the rear-view mirror, the NFL might have been poised for a comeback in the ratings. But another wave of intrusive social justice virtue signaling may put a crimp in that increase. READ MORE

The NFL Launches New ‘Football Is Gay’ Ad Campaign Designed To Alienate Sports Fans Not Already Driven Out By Their Social Justice Polices

The NFL is making it clear it stands firmly with the LGBTQ+ community releasing a video Monday that featured the message, ‘Football is gay.’

The NFL is making it clear it stands firmly with the LGBTQ+ community … releasing a powerful video Monday that featured the message, ‘Football is gay.’

Since the age of 13, and being raised in the northeast, I was an unabashed and unapologetic Pittsburgh Steelers football fan, having starting to watch during the dynasty years of the 1970’s. Though my love of football faded some after getting saved, I still enjoyed watching the games from time to time. Time, for me, ran out when the NFL started supporting the politics of Colin Kaepernick leading all the way up to blatant disrespect for our National Anthem and flag. I didn’t watch one minute of one game in 2020, but to be honest, I was holding out hope the NFL would recover itself in the fourth quarter. They didn’t, they fumbled on the 10-yard line and the clock officially ran out for me and the NFL.

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” 1 Timothy 4:1,2 (KJB)

Now today the NFL has tripled-down on their political correctness and divisive Leftist pandering with a new spot called ‘Football Is Gay’ designed to virtual signal their need to be accepted by less than 3% of the population. Football is not gay, it’s a sport that has always been played by heterosexual and homosexual people, that’s no secret. But when you replace the purpose of football, which is to spend 4 quarters kicking and throwing a pigskin football through the uprights, with the radical agenda of the far Left, it cancels itself and becomes meaningless.

I made a trip to Goodwill this morning with a huge bag of Steelers t-shirts and jerseys, tomorrow I will make a second trip and finish the job. Football is not gay, bisexual or transgender, far from it. Football is dead, and I couldn’t care less what happens now. Football is no longer a game, it’s a political weapon designed to enact an agenda.

NFL Releases ‘Football Is Gay’ Promo Commercial

FROM TMZ: The clip, which is 30 seconds in length, added, “Football is lesbian. Football is beautiful. Football is queer. Football is life.” The messages didn’t stop there … they even went on to say, “Football is transgender” and “Football is bisexual” — before the video ended with, “Football is for everyone.”

A league spokesperson confirmed to Outsports on Monday the video was a direct response to Las Vegas Raiders pass-rusher Carl Nassib announcing he’s gay last week.

“I am proud of the clear message this spot sends to the NFL’s LGBTQ+ fans: This game is unquestionably for you,” another rep for the league, NFL diversity director Sam Rapoport, added to Outsports. “I will be playing its first line over and over in my head all season.”

As part of the video message, the NFL once again encouraged people to donate to The Trevor Project — an org. established to try to help prevent suicides in the LGBTQ+ community.
Nassib said last week he was donating $100K to the organization during his video announcement … and the NFL quickly followed suit matching the donation hours later.

“NFL proudly supports The Trevor Project,” the league said in Monday’s video. “LGBTQ+ youth with at least one accepting adult have 40% lower risk of attempting suicide.”

The video is just the latest positive response to Nassib’s announcement … you’ll recall, players from all over the league have publicly voiced their support for the 28-year-old — and even President Joe Biden praised the football player as well. READ MORE
