Radicalized NFL Places Restrictions On Player Religious Freedom - Report

The radical leftward shift of the National Football League continues with a stunning report that there will be restrictions placed on how and where players are able to worship.
According to the report by NBC News, the new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) includes a mandate that players will be prohibited from attending most indoor church services above a certain capacity.
The players will also be banned from indoor bars, nightclubs, concerts, house parties, and sporting events under the pretense of stopping the spread of COVID-19.
Notably excepted are large protests which are exempt from the rules and approved by the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement that has assumed control of NFL policies.
With the NFL's embrace of authoritarianism, propaganda and anti-white racial politics, it should not be surprising that the league would adopt the political left's hostility toward religion as well.
With the NFL and NFL Players Association striking a historic, on-the-fly CBA that covers 2020 and beyond, the two sides have come up with a way to ensure that players will practice personal responsibility in a pandemic.
Per multiple sources, the deal specifically prohibits players from engaging in certain behaviors this season. Players cannot attend indoor night clubs, indoor bars (except to pickup food), indoor house parties (with 15 or more people), indoor concerts, professional sporting events, or indoor church services that allow attendance above 25 percent of capacity.
Players can be fined for violating these rules. Moreover, if they test positive after engaging in prohibited activities, they will not be paid for the games they miss. Also, future guarantees in their contracts would be voided.
It will be interesting to see how teams enforce the rules. Some may use security officials to monitor local establishments or to track the behavior of players. Others may rely on contacts within the community to contact the team if/when violations are witnessed. Some may set up an NBA-style tip line.
Fascism has come to America wrapped in anti-racism and wearing cleats and jockstraps.
How such onerous restrictions will go over with the league's Christian players - of which there are many - remains to be seen but the threat of bullying by BLM enforcers in the media and on Twitter as well as locker room activists should silence any who complain.
The league has undergone an extreme transformation over the last two months with Commissioner Roger Goodell apologizing to players whose disrespect for the flag turned of millions of fans and by making it clear that such political displays will not only be tolerated but encouraged going forward.
There was also the extremely divisive decision to play the song "Lift Every Voice and Sing" which is known as the "black national anthem" before games which could lead to every player standing for it and then hitting their knees for the "Star-Spangled Banner" in a display that will send patriotic fans running for the exits.
The league also agreed to allow players to display leftist political statements on their helmets and will have "Black Lives Matter" displayed in the end zones.
Now that BLM has become the corporate-sponsored state religion, there will be no need for Christianity and the NFL is incorporating that message into its game plan.
The season is set to open with a nationally televised contest between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans.
