"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

It was bound to come to this

Because kneeling in public now can only be an act of disrespect.

I assume this is the football players kneeling?

FOX only recognizes the imperial state religion of "christianity" as religion. It looks a little like Christianity, only it's Mammonism American style, under the anti-Christ Donald Joseph Drumpf, or ol' 666, as I think of him. Putin being the first monster, him only the second one.

Apparently Fox ran a story about Eagles players kneeling in order to justify Trump's "disinviting" them to the White House (after Trump was told most Eagles players wouldn't attend).

Trump linked their refusal to appear to kneeling during the anthem in games, but no Eagles player knelt last season during the anthem. The video of kneeling Fox used was Eagles players in prayer before the anthem was played.

Fake news, in other words.
