FOR THE RECORD. Trying to mix professional football and Jehovah’s Witnesses is like trying to mix oil and water, the two simply do not mix. I write under inspiration from God, the true God, Jehovah, who does not approve of any violence, most especially, entertainment violence. True Christians do not watch or participate in competitive violent sports or “extreme” sports. Any professional football player who claims to be one of Jehovah’s Witnesses is either assigned to make such a claim, or, if he of his own volition makes such a claim, he really needs to do some self-examination. Again, I write under inspiration from, and with authority from, God, the true God, Jehovah. Also for the record, the knee bending controversy is orchestrated, by none of than the Mormon Church of Satan. (to be continued) cc all Mormon barristers

As more than one sports commentator has noted, the world of professional sports is a meritocracy. Therefore, anyone who can successfully compete at the highest levels of athletic endeavor can become a pro.
For Jehovah’s Witnesses, their religion itself does not prohibit participation in professional athletics. Two of the most prominent tennis players in the world — Venus and Serena Williams — come from that faith. Several Jehovah’s Witnesses played basketball and baseball professionally. At least one prizefighter, Kid Gavilán, joined Jehovah’s Witnesses, though he may not have done so until he retired from the ring.
Dave Pear, a two-time All-Pro defensive lineman with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a Super Bowl champion with the Oakland Raiders, is a member of Jehovah’s Witnesses. He endured many injuries and had multiple major surgeries during his six years in the NFL. Pear now expresses regrets that he ever played the game. But those regrets stem from the permanent physical suffering he has endured, not from his religious beliefs.
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe in being separate from the world. So they will not serve in the military. They typically don’t even register to vote. But they otherwise live and work in secular society. And they are not religiously prohibited from competing as athletes, not even in a sport that mimics combat the way football does.
So what could prevent a member of Jehovah’s Witnesses from playing in the NFL?
America’s growing obsession with the national anthem may do it. President Trump wants any player who fails to stand for “The Star Spangled Banner” to be fired. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says that anyone on his team who doesn’t rise respectfully for the anthem “will not play” for him. NFL rules say players “should” stand during the anthem, but the 32 franchise owners may try to impose a tougher mandate.
That would be a problem for members of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Their religion bans pledging allegiance to national flags and singing national anthems. When Pear played in the NFL, few Americans would have noticed or cared whether he was standing at attention during the anthem. His time on the field was measured only by athletic achievements — how many tackles he made and whether he sacked the opposing quarterback. But that was 30 years ago. Today, if his spinal injuries allowed him to walk onto the field, his qualities would be judged by his posture during patriotic music.
The national anthem is now the center of a national debate. ESPN anchor Jemele Hill has been suspended from her job for suggesting that Jones may have created dissension within his team with his ultimatum. And President Trump, whose comments have questioned employment practices at ESPN and the tax status of the NFL, may be violating the First Amendment, which protects the right to “free exercise” of religion. If an athlete’s religious views do not permit pledging to the flag or honoring the national anthem, the Constitution says the right to abstain is absolute. To Jehovah’s Witnesses, the “free exercise” of their religion includes refusing to glorify nations or their flags.
On the trajectory along which things seem to be moving, superbly gifted athletes may be pressured into choosing between their careers and their constitutional rights. That is the silly state into which our national discourse has descended.
At least the Williams sisters can continue to play tennis without jeopardizing any personal freedoms or waiving any human rights. To date, no one seems ready to demand the playing of the national anthem before the first serve is struck at the U. S. Open next August.
Of course, a lot could happen in the form of a constitutional crisis between now and next summer.

Creativity is a pantheistic white separatist new religious movement which has been classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. It was founded in Lighthouse Point, Florida by Ben Klassen as the Church of the Creator in 1973. The church’s worldview is based on the veneration of the white race and the supposed safeguarding of its survival.

No matter how many people think otherwise, Jehovah’s Witnesses really is God’s visible organization.
The wrath of Jehovah God really is upon the Mormon Church of Satan, no matter how many people think otherwise.
The stock market really is going to crash, worldwide, no matter how many people think otherwise.
No matter how many people think otherwise, Caroline Kennedy will be elected President in the year 2020; Jim Turner of Texas will be elected Vice President; Robert Kennedy Jr. will be nominated and confirmed U.S. Attorney General; Robert Mueller will be nominated and confirmed Director of the FBI.

THIS IS ANOTHER IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM ME:
Mayor Warren Wilhelm aka Bill de Blasio is the clean-up man, if the Mormon Church of Satan/CIA succeed in their planned nuclear bomb attack on the Hudson River. His administration is already prepared to hold tribunals and immediately execute some of the “troublemakers” (30,000 bananas; nationwide: 30,000 guillotines, to be continued).
Partial List of Scapegoats, if the Mormon Church of Satan/CIA succeed in their nuclear bomb attack on the Hudson River:
Former President Barack “Hussein” Obama
Former Advisor to the President, Valerie “June” Jarrett
Former Homeland Security Director “Jeh” Johnson
Newark Mayor Ras Baraka
Minnesota Congressman FBI agent Keith “Ellison”
New York Congressman FBI agent Hakim Jeffries
Former leader of the CIA’s Black Panthers: FBI agent “Malik Zulu Shabazz”
Former Public Relations Spokesman for Mormon Church, FBI agent “Ahmad” Corbitt (now assigned to the Dominican Republic)
The purpose of this website is to expose the Mormon Church of Satan and all enemies of Jesus Christ the Way the Truth the Life, the Prince of Peace. This website is also the beginning of a presidential campaign to elect Caroline Kennedy President of the United States. I prayed to Jehovah God to please, by means of His son Christ Jesus, please, arrange national events and world events in such a manner such that Caroline Kennedy is elected President of the United States. I know Jehovah God hears my prayer and will answer my prayer because that particular prayer of mine is one of my deepest desires and Jehovah God has promised me that he will satisfy all of my deepest desires. All of the information posted at this website is interconnected; directly connected to the Mormon Church of Satan’s illegal sting operation surrounding Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide, and me.
