NFL: RG3 told to turn ‘Know Jesus Know Peace’ shirt inside-out for Interview | Seriously?

RG3-know-jesus-tshirtSunday, September 14, 2014 —
Washington Redskins Quarterback RG3 (Robert Griffin III) dislocated his left ankle in a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Yesterday, while Griffin was preparing to talk to the media about the progress of his dislocated of his left-ankle — you could notice the very stylish tee-shirt that Griffin was sporting that read ‘Know Jesus Know Peace’.

Somehow between Griffin’s time in the Locker-room and the time that he came out to meet the press — you will notice that something has changed about his apparel

can you spot it?

Robert-Griffin-iii-jesus-shirtRG3’s shirt has been flipped inside-out in an obvious attempt to hide the religious reference to Jesus Christ.

According to sources, the reason RG3 turned his shirt inside out was because the NFL has strict rules pertaining to what clothing the players can wear during post-game interviews.

But according to Dan Steinberg (Sports blogger for the Washington post), the shirt that RG3 was wearing was made by a company named Not of this World.

Steinberg also noted that this shirt seemingly does not violate any contracts that the NFL has with NFL apparel companies such as NIKE because players and coaches are not required to wear NFL-Sponsored apparel during news conferences.

America: Religious Freedoms for ALL (except Christians)

I have no doubt that someone saw RG3‘s shirt and advised him that he should probably turn it inside out in order to avoid offending other religious groups. Although I am disappointed that RG3 complied to their request, I do not hold him to blame.

With each passing day it seems as if America takes one step closer to banishing Christianity entirely. All over America, Christians are told that they cannot openly share or practice their faith because someone may be “Offended” — yet other religious groups are permitted to freely Worship (or not worship) and proselytize as they please.

In fact, several months ago — Michael Sam became the world’s first openly gay professional football player and celebrated his success by french-kissing his boyfriend on national television.

I find it strange that this was perfectly acceptable, but RG3 needed to hide his shirt about Jesus.

How messed up is that?

Christians are allowing political correctness to stifle our religious freedoms. We are essentially being told that it is okay for us to be Christians at home — so long as we don’t bring it out into the public

Although we have a religious duty to honor the law and those in places of power
— we have an even greater duty to honor our God and our Creator.

As the apostle Paul famously said….

“Shall we obey Man rather than GOD?” (Acts 5:29)

    If I were RG3, I’d have said No shirt-no interview!

    If this is true it is an extremely poor witness.

      Yes it was definitely a missed opportunity,
      But lets just hope that next time he will stand firm!

    I’m disappointed in RG3. He could have made a powerful testimony to his faith, but instead chose to deny Jesus. I won’t judge, because I know many of us (myself included) have been guilty of this.

      Maxwell,

      Thanks for your comment!
      Yes we all are human and fall short sometimes —
      Hopefully this will serve as a learning experience not just for RG3, but for Christians everywhere

    Lols, no. Being an entertainer myself they try to place rules on everything you do and make you sign contracts that basically state that they own you. I don’t care who you are, GOD owns me not you. It is VERY disappointing that he complied especially since every group EXCEPT Christians it seems can be prevalent and RESPECTED for it. I think more entertainers need to take a firm stance about their relationships with Christ. Why can’t WE go on strike like other people who think they’re being stifled do?Why are we always the ones to shrink back? Aren’t we the head and not the tail? What happened to doing all things through Christ? As a whole we are losing our identity and conforming to the world. It’s seriously a sad thing to just watch. So many of us are going to be caught sleeping..
