Evangelist Franklin Graham: ‘God Bless” NASCAR Owners For Threatening To Fire Employees For Free Speech
Evangelist Franklin Graham gave his support to NASCAR owners who have threatened to fire any employee who dares exercise their free speech by kneeling during the National Anthem.
Graham praised the owners’ threats to censor their employees on Facebook on Sept. 25:
God bless Richard Petty, Richard Childress, and NASCAR owners for doing the right thing. They told their employees that if they disrespected the flag or the national anthem, they would get them a ride on a Greyhound bus! I think NFL owners should take a lesson from them! Do you agree?
Graham often complains that Christians are persecuted for their beliefs and for acting out their faith.
NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. tweeted his support for free speech on Sept. 25 by quoting President John F. Kennedy:
All Americans R granted rights 2 peaceful protests. Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable-JFK.
