If the claims are true, and Craig James was fired from Fox Sports for being a Bible believing Christian, it would be another sign that persecution is growing. Breitbart has more…
In exclusive comment to Breitbart News, former ESPN and CBS broadcaster and former Southern Methodist University and NFL star tailback Craig James criticized former employer Fox Sports Southwest for its firing of him two weeks ago over his public stance on same-sex marriage.
“I was shocked that my personal religious beliefs were not only the reason for Fox Sports firing me but I was completely floored when I read stories quoting Fox Sports representatives essentially saying that people of faith are banned from working at Fox Sports,” James told Breitbart News. “That is not right and surely someone made a terrible mistake.”
James continued, “I have worked in broadcasting for twenty-four years and have always treated my colleagues with respect and dignity regardless of their background or personal beliefs. I believe it is essential in our business to maintain professional relationships with people from a diverse background and have tolerance for those of different beliefs. I have never discussed my faith while broadcasting and it has never been an issue until now.” James’s attorneys at Liberty Institute have sent a demand letter, given exclusively to Breitbart News, to Fox Sports. The letter is embedded below.
So, get over there and check it out. For me, this is a sign of the times. The Word warned us of this 2000 years ago…
Mark 13:13 (New International Version)
Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
In the Middle East, Christians are being slaughtered for their faith. In this country, it is starting with people being forced out of jobs, forced to close businesses, forced to fund abortions, and in some places, forced to participate in them, or lose their jobs as health care providers. With history as a precedent, it is a matter of time before violence begins. And, when the MSM refuses to cover it, I will.
