The Bloodied NFL

The National Football League (NFL) isn’t having a good season so far and the season has just begun. This certainly doesn’t bode especially well the national organization.

A Bloodied and Battered NFL

Hellfire! Even Congress and the White House has laid into them lately over Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice beating his fiance in an elevator.

This quote seems to sum up the issues that NFL is currently experiencing. It equally well sums up one of America’s more self-destructive flaws of character and thinking.

The season hasn’t exactly gotten off to a roaring start for the National Football League. With the release of the infamous Ray Rice elevator video, questions about whether the NFL properly investigated the Rice incident and treated other domestic violence incidents with the seriousness, concern and respect they deserve, and more recently the disclosures about Adrian Peterson’s treatment of his son, the NFL has been battered by bad news.

“The Bloodied NFL Shield”

One – We have the tendency to make role models out athletes even though athletic ability has no moral or ethical component and the majority of professional athletes, especially in football, come from backgrounds that never fostered any sort of proper behavior in them. And, of course, when our false gods of sports celebritydom disappoint us by reverting to form, we rant and rail at their employers to punish them harshly – less because of what they did then that they betrayed the image we painted of them.

Two – Our society has reached the point where we want employers to be accountable for the actions of their employees off the job and to harshly punish those employees – termination of their livelihood being the preferred punishment – who violate public sensibilities on their own time.

I don’t think it possible to overly stressed just how bad and how societally destructive these two belief structure are to our nation.

Ungodly Stupidity

The Atheists want to trash religion.  I say we exterminate the these vermin and trash atheism.Their is a growing trend of Atheist groups intent on evangelizing their non-belief to the majority of Americans in an effort to wipe any mention of the God(s) from our nation.

The latest example of these Godless filth’s attack up religion, came last week when the vermin of the The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) attacked Clemson University because the head coach of their football team does hide or silence his Christian faith.

That’s right; these subhumans of The Freedom From Religion Foundation have lodged a letter of complaint to Clemson, charging that coach Dabo Swinney and his staff with “unconstitutional behavior” at the public university.

One of Swinney’s offenses is the use of his favorite motivational saying: “Run your race to win, don’t just run the race.” Nevermind that it could have come from a Dale Carnegie book or a Steven Covey seminar: the phrase is from 1 Corinthians 9:24-25, so clearly Swinney is engaged in the establishment of a state religion here. Can’t you see it?

The paper terrorists of the FFFRF are demanding that the school to direct Coach Swinney to immediately stop team prayers, sermons, Bible studies and “church days” for players, indoctrinate staff in the FFRF’s corruption of their First Amendment obligations, and monitor their compliance.

On the bright side, Clemson’s administration seems to be doing the right, Godly, and American thing by largely ignoring the demands of these Godless freaks who, quite frankly, have no standing to complain about anything that their betters do.
