Sports IllustratedIt has taken a beating online after it attacked a Supreme Court decision based on religious freedom.
As Breitbart News profiled, Sports Illustrated waded into political waters on Monday with an article by Greg Bishop bashing the Supreme Court case centered on Bremerton High School assistant coach Joe Kennedy, who was sanctioned by his school district in 2015 for praying on the field with his players. Tellingly, Bishop argued that Kennedy’s potential win in court could be an “erosion”American democracy.
“This Sports Illustrated article is little else but a long smear against Christians, conservatives, and white people in general, and coach Kennedy in particular, and on a vicious personal level, at that,” Breitbart News noted.
To lambaste conservatives and religious freedom advocates, they took to social media. Sports IllustratedFor such an inexcusable display of left-wing bias.
Sports Illustrated may be led to believe that American democracy is at its end because of players and coaches praying while on the field.
That would have meant that American democracy was destroyed before Jim Thorpe even threw his first porkkin. https://t.co/ph1LIg7Ct7

Greg is disappointed
After every NFL game, I kneeled down and prayed. This was how I publicly thanked God. Anxiety and discouragement are not the best things for today’s society.
Freedom FROM religion and freedom OF religion are two different things

“The machine backing him”It is the US Constitution. And it’s telling that Sports Illustrated thinks the Constitution is a threat to “democracy.” https://t.co/wsYROrQS1I

It is remarkable. @SInowWe would not celebrate someone who kneels during the national anthem but we condemn those who kneel to pray. “an erosion of a bedrock of American democracy”

.@SInowIt is performative wokeism to try to compare coaches and players praying and kneeling before each football match to the demise of democracy. https://t.co/qf0flpP0AS

Lost in the conversation here is the neoprogs’ argument that high school kids are easily swayed, and will do things they don’t truly believe merely to please those in authority. This also applies to gender ideology.
