A Christian Response to Protest Culture in the NFL

October 3, 2017

Maybe you’re tired of reading articles about racial protests in the NFL and around the country like we are. We thought it might be helpful to provide a Christian response to protest culture in this country.

We discuss the issue of general free speech vs. employment policies governing speech and behavior. Do employers have the right to terminate employees that violate the company’s convictions? Do football team owners have the right to fire players that stand (or kneel, in this case) against the owner’s convictions?

We also talk about the current value of the protests. Are they actually making a difference? If the protests aren’t bringing people together, what should we be doing to help with racial reconciliation? As Christians, we need to encourage conversation, both in our homes and in our communities, pointing people back to the power of the Gospel for change and unity.
