The Men Who Stood: Christian NFL Stars Send a Powerful Message to America Amidst NFL Protest

Separately, they represent three different NFL teams, three different field positions, and three different nationalities—but together, these men are forming ONE united front amidst the NFL protest that created a social media uproar this weekend.

Donald Trump’s call for the NFL to fire any “son of a b***” who got down on one knee during the anthem has fueled America’s already white-hot, racially-divisive fire.

 

Colin Kaepernick’s controversial decision to kneel last season in an effort to take a stand against black oppression has created a wide spectrum of responses, ranging from “STAND or be anti-American” to “KNEEL or be a racist disgrace.”

But a few brave souls are taking a higher road that is worthy of note and sending exactly the message our nation needs right now. I believe there are a few things we can learn from three Christian NFL stars who STOOD—in love, rather than hate.

Though Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson admitted that he would not have knelt along with Kaepernick last year, he still fully supports the reasons why he, and others, have decided to protest in that way.

“I support him in what he decided to do,” said Watson in an interview with Good Morning America. “I haven’t kneeled, but the reasons why he kneeled, the police brutality, the excessive force, and as he said, the oppression of different people of color, those are all concerns of mine and have been since before Colin decided to kneel, and have been for a lot of other people in our country as well.”

The tight end says chapel that morning before the game was riveted with emotion as guys discussed the tension between “wanting to respect [their] country and show love for their country, but also wanting to respond in solidarity.”
