The American Family Association has accused athletes across America who are following San Francisco 49ers football player Colin Kaepernick in his decision to not stand during the national anthem of "disgracing" and "embarrassing" themselves and their teams.
"As the football season rolls on, more and more athletes are disgracing themselves and embarrassing their coaches and teams by thumbing their noses at the national anthem," said Buddy Smith, AFA Senior Vice-President, on Thursday.
Smith pointed out that unlike Kaepernick, who protested against racial discrimination in America by kneeling during the anthem, other players such as Millikin University linebacker Conner Brewer decided to go in another direction and stand on the sideline during the anthem while his teammates chose to stay in the locker room. more >>

After being hailed as a miracle worker earlier this week for praying for and laying hands on a fan who was having a seizure and passed out, Tim Tebow says he isn't taking credit for performing any miracles, and was just doing what all Christians are called to do: "be there for people."
When reports surfaced about the 29-year-old Scottsdale Scorpions baseball player laying hands on a fan named Brandon, some who witnessed the event called it a "miracle." While Tebow acknowledged that God was perfectly capable of performing a miracle, the Christian athlete insisted that nothing was done with his own strength.
"As far as me and miracles, no. But in the God that we serve, yeah, I do believe in miracles," Tebow told reporters on Wednesday. "I don't know what the situation was, but I know that the God that I get to serve is the God that always performs miracles in people's lives everyday, all the time." more >>
