Fox Sports fires sportscaster for his Christian faith
Send an email to Fox Sports, urging them to put aside their anti-Christian intolerance and reinstate Craig James.
Although initially heralded as a great addition to the Fox Sports Southwest sportscast team, the Fox Sports network decided to fire Craig James after learning of his Christian faith...after only one day on the job!
Craig James was fired as a Fox Sports sportscaster as a result of sharing his religious beliefs publicly. A Fox spokesperson said, "We just asked ourselves how Craig's statements would play in our human resources department. He couldn't say those things here."
What did James say that was so egregious that he deserved to be fired?
As a candidate during a Texas U.S. Senate campaign in 2010, Craig James said his Christian faith clearly outlined his position on gay marriage and pledged he would not support same-sex unions. He also stated he was "adamantly opposed to abortion." Read an expanded story of his firing here.
Because of his personal faith (and for no other reason), Fox Sports fired Mr. Craig James. Fox is now trying to spin this, saying he wasn't fired for religious reasons. Sports Illustrated isn't buying it, Dallas News isn't buying it and neither are we!
This is clearly a case of religious discrimination by Fox Sports and an attempt by the network to silence those who stand on God’s word concerning marriage and abortion.
Send an email to Fox Sports, urging them to put aside their anti-Christian intolerance and reinstate Craig James. We have prepared a letter for you to send to Dan Bell, Vice President of Communications for Fox Sports.
