LET US PRAYThe NFL Becomes Activists (July 26, 2021)
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” – Isaiah 5:20
Recently, the home of “America’s game,” the massive and powerful National Football League decided to become activists for the LGBTQ+ movement. The League released a video unmistakably embracing the LGBTQ+ community, in which the video stated, “football is gay, lesbian, queer, and transgender.”
The League’s spokesperson Samantha Roth told the media that this video and message was a direct response of support for Carl Nassib who plays defensive end for the Las Vegas Raiders in his coming out as a gay man.
The NFL chief marketing officer Tom Ellis went as far as to say, “This spot is about celebrating pride, and the importance of inclusion. It’s imperative that we use our voice and leverage the NFL platform to drive positive change.”
As the NFL celebrates “pride” and seeks to use its platform to “drive positive change” it fails to realize the harm it is causing. In reality, the NFL is advocating for and promoting what the Bible classifies as sexual perversion, depravity, and sin. As many young boys and some girls watch their favorite teams and players play this year, may they be protected from this manipulative scheme from the LGTBQ+ movement that celebrates what Scripture calls sin.
