Drew Brees Fires Back After Criticism For Focus On The Family Video

NFL quarterback Drew Brees fired back at critics who attacked his participation in a ‘Focus on the Family’ video that encouraged kids to participate in ‘bring your bible to school day.’ As Fox News reports:

NFL quarterback Drew Brees defended himself this week after critics slammed a video in which the New Orleans Saints star encouraged Christian students to participate in Bring Your Bible to School Day.

Many of the critics opposed the Brees video because it was backed by Focus on the Family, a group frequently accused of being anti-gay. The group has previously been attacked for endorsing “conversion therapy,” an often discredited practice of trying to change a person’s sexual orientation…

“Hopefully this sets the record straight with who I am and what I stand for,” Brees wrote above the video. “Love, Respect, and Accept ALL. I encourage you not to believe the negativity you read that says differently. It’s simply not true. Have a great day.”

In the video, Brees says: “I do not support any groups that discriminate or that have their own agendas that are trying to promote inequality.”

It’s amazing that Christians now have to defend themselves in public against something as simple as supporting a ‘bring your bible to school’ day.
