A former NFL player and college football analyst has accepted a position at the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian advocacy group.
Craig James was hired briefly by Fox Sports Southwest in 2013 and made one appearance with the network before he was fired for comments about homosexuality that he made while running for U.S. Senate in Texas in 2012.
"We are very excited and pleased to announce that Craig James is joining Family Research Council's team," said FRC President Tony Perkins in a statement. "Losing one job because of his religious beliefs has made room for another: raising awareness about the threats to our most precious liberty — the freedom of religion. His leadership skills, his courage in the face of religious hostility, and his passion for faith, family and freedom will make him a great addition to the FRC team." more >>

Michael Vick is officially a member of the New York Jets and spoke about the possibilities of getting wide receiver Desean Jackson to join him.
While veteran quarterback Vick,33, came to the Jets from the Philadelphia Eagles recently, he is already speaking to reporters about the possibilities of his former teammate Jackson joining him.
"If there's an opportunity to get DeSean, I'm pretty sure the New York Jets fans would be in favor of that," Vick told reporters. "But who knows, it takes a lot to make a trade happen (with) all of the intricacies of a contract. It's not for us as players to decide. But hopefully everything will work out for DeSean. If he ends up in New York, we'll be happy, just as happy as he will be. But who knows, you can't say." more >>
The latest episode of A&E's hit show "Duck Dynasty" played on the largest TV in the world on Wednesday, as Texas Motor Speedway unveiled its new "Big Hoss TV." That same episode also reached the least amount of viewers the show has ever had, continuing a decline from last summer's high point.
"If you told me we were going to do this a couple years ago, I would've never believed it," Willie Robertson, "Duck Dynasty" star and CEO of Duck Commander, said in an interview shown on the screen. "I hope we look good."
The 12-story Big Hoss TV, built by Panasonic, measures 20,633 square feet (94.6 feet tall and 218 feet wide) and costs $40 million. It has been designed to stand against winds up to 130 miles per hour, and the strength of the LED bulbs were tested by having golf balls hit the screen, simulating hail. ANI News reported that the TV, larger than Boeing's biggest 767, is set to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest TV in the world. more >>
NFL free agent wide receiver Jason Avant says his grandmother's faith led him to Jesus. She prayed for him for years, and when he finally came to Christ, it was the happiest day of her life.
Her positive influence goes back to his drug-dealing days,Avant told CBN News in a video interview posted Friday.
"I was the worst gang-banger/drug dealer ever because my grandmother gave me too much truth for me to be comfortable in that environment," he said. The NFL star admitted to dealing drugs as early as sixth grade when he was growing up on the south side of Chicago. He lived with his Christian grandmother, but most of the other relatives he lived with were gang-bangers, so he grew up familiar with drug deals and drive-by shootings. more >>
