The NFL is holding its breath for a strong start to the 2021 season.
The 2020 campaign was marred by poor ratings and burdensome COVID restrictions.
But the NFL canceled a national anthem performance for an infuriating reason.
The NFL has been a political flashpoint ever since Colin Kaepernick started the anti-American anthem protest.
Since then, the league has made one misstep after another to quell the political tension.
Now the NFL is igniting a national anthem controversy for an entirely different reason.
Christian singer Victory Boyd was barred from performing the national anthem for the league’s opening kickoff because she has not received the COVID-19 vaccine.
The league requires that all performers be fully vaccinated in order to participate.
Boyd, who won a Grammy for her work on Kanye West’s gospel-themed album “Jesus Is King,” released a statement explaining her decision not to get vaccinated at this point.
“The Bible admonishes Christians to appreciate their bodies as being sacred and a temple of the Holy Spirit and to not participate in things that can defile the body or render the body dysfunctional. I am in prayer to make sure that the Lord guides me into the right decision concerning receiving an unproven injection with artificial properties that can potentially have a longterm effect on my reproductive health.”
Liberals’ heads exploded when Boyd cited her Christian faith as the reason she has not taken the vaccine.
Democrats and public health experts have exerted an unbelievable pressure campaign to get everyone vaccinated irrespective of their health status or religious objections.
“If I want to take the vaccine, the decision will be between myself, my doctor and my God. At this point, the Spirit of God is leading me to take a stand for freedom of choice. Throughout my life I have overcome many obstacles, but now I was faced with a new glass ceiling that I couldn’t break through. It feels like we’re going backwards to a familiar place that I thought we had overcome as a country. To be disqualified because of a discriminatory policy that had nothing to do with my talent made me feel alarmed because of what it implies for not only myself but millions of others.”
Joe Biden and the Left are actively trying to create a two-tiered society based on vaccine status.
In a recent speech, Biden encouraged Americans to have animus toward the unvaccinated, which is one of the most immoral speeches ever uttered by an American president.
Vaccines were supposed to be the gateway back to normalcy, but the COVID tyranny has only increased.
Politicians and public health officials hungry for power and influence are going to milk the pandemic for all it’s worth.
Until Americans stand up and refuse the onerous restrictions, they will continue.
Being disinvited from singing the national anthem is just the beginning.
Millions of Americans will have their livelihoods threatened as the COVID protocols tighten.
