It was on social media that Graham praised the players.
‚ÄúCongratulations to these 18 football players and their coaches from Washington County High School in Chatom, Alabama!‚ÄĚ he posted.
‚ÄúThese students who had put their faith in Jesus Christ were baptized in a feeding trough while everyone celebrated ‚Äď well, almost everyone,‚ÄĚ he said.
He noted, ‚ÄúOne person in their small town complained to the atheist Freedom From Religion Foundation and now they‚Äôre demanding an investigation about these ‚Äėreligious activities.‚Äô I thank God for coaches and teachers across our country who are boldly living out their faith in Christ and care deeply about the lives of their students. God bless them!‚ÄĚ...
These US American atheists are determined that like as in the USSR of old, Communist China and North Korea of today, and of places like Vietnam, Laos and Cuba to a certain extent, that atheism and secular humanism are to be the official enforced state religion of the USA, contrary to your Constitution, and the wishes of the Founding Fathers.
What was conceived by the Founding Fathers as an idea that the USA would not be under the tyranny of a prescribed state religion, as had happened to the forefathers who emigrated to what became the USA from other countries where they had been persecuted for not following the state prescribed church, but yet with broadly Judeo-Christian foundations has been totally subverted since the 1960‚Äôs and before to mean that everything in the public sphere must be atheistic and totally godless.
As the people under the USSR and other regimes discovered, and as the Communist Parties of China and North Korea are discovering now, it is an idea that in the end will not work, and the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ will not be destroyed, however much persecution is thrown at it.
Amen to all three posts and so thankful that we have people like Franklin Graham to be an encouragement in what happened on that football ball. God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform. The devil knows he has a short time left and he goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.
