Cross On a Helmet?

Cross On a Helmet? Bryan Fischer Host of "Focal Point" MORE

Football players at Arkansas State wanted to honor the memory of two fallen members of their football teams by putting unobtrusive crosses on the back of their helmets. Some nameless attorney got offended and called the school to complain, and the school immediately ordered the players to remove the emblems or deface them by cutting off the bottom of the crosses to turn them into plus signs. In so doing, ASU violated the rights of the players by discriminating against them based on their viewpoint, something that is flatly illegal and unconstitutional. Randy Sharp, AFA’s director of special projects, and I talk about this, and urge people to take action by contacting the university.
