Drew Brees faces backlash over Bible comments


PETE: NFL QUARTERBACK DREW BREES PLAYING DEFENSE AFTER CRITICS SLAM HIM FOR PROMOTING BRING YOUR BIBLE TO SCHOOL DAY.>> I’D LIKE TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT. I LIVE BY TWO VERY SIMPLE CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALS, AND THAT IS LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, MIND, AND SOUL, AND LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF, SO THE FACT THAT THESE RUMORS HAVE BEEN SPREAD ABOUT ME, ARE COMPLETELY UNTRUE. WHAT I DID WAS I FILMED A VIDEO RECENTLY THAT WAS ENCOURAGING KIDS TO BRING THEIR BIBLES TO SCHOOL FOR NATIONAL BRING YOUR BIBLE TO SCHOOL DAY. ED: HERE TO WEIGH IN OUR PANEL OF FORMER NFL STARS ERIC COLEMAN , DONNA VAN MCNABB GOOD MORNING ALL. THIS IS ALWAYS A GREAT SUNDAY AND HAVING ALL THREE OF YOU HERE IS WONDERFUL. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT DREW BREES LET’S START WITH YOU ERIC I WANT AN IDEA OF HIM PUSHING BACK NOW ON THE CRITICS SAYING LOOK I WANT TO ENCOURAGE KIDS TO BRING THEIR BIBLE TO SCHOOL.>> I LIKE THE FACT THAT HE PUSHED BACK. HERE WE ARE IN AN AGE WHERE A QUARTERBACK OF THE NFL TEAM PROMOTES KIDS TO BRING BIBLES TO SCHOOL, PROMOTES SOMETHING POSITIVE AND HE GETS CRUSHED FOR IT. I THINK IT’S A SHAME AND I’M GLAD THAT HE PUSHED BACK. PETE: DONNA VAN HE’S ALSO A LEADER IN THE LOCKER ROOM. DOES THIS HAVE ANY IMPACT ON HOW HIS TEAMMATES VIEW?>> THIS IS A GUY STANDING UP FOR WHAT HE BELIEVES AND I THINK WE HAVE TO REALLY LOOK INTO A SITUATION WHERE IT’S MUCH MORE THAN JUST A VIDEO THAT WAS SENT. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WHICH A LOT OF PEOPLE IN NEW ORLEANS ARE LOOKING AT HIM AS A ROLE MODEL, THEY ARE TRYING TO KIND OF PUT THEMSELVES IN HIS SHOES, AND HE’S SENDING A GOOD MESSAGE. THIS ISN’T A BAD MESSAGE AT ALL THAT HE’S SENDING AND WE ALL NEED TO LOOK AT IT IF THIS IS A NATIONAL DAY HE’S TRYING TO BRING ABOUT AND HE’S PROMOTING IT. ED: CHRIS IT’S LIKE THE MOB DECIDED DREW BREES IS A BAD GUY BECAUSE HE GOT IN WITH THIS CONSERVATIVE GROUP WHEN THEY DIDN’T LISTEN TO WHAT HE SAID THAT LISTEN TO WHAT’S IN HIS HEART. YOU GUYS PLAYED IN A DIFFERENT TIME WHERE NOT EVERY SINGLE THING WAS POLITICAL.>> NO, WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF OFFENSE RIGHT NOW WHERE EVERYTHING IS BEING CONSTRUCTED TO DRIVE CLICKS, VIEWS, LIKES, SHARES, IT’S ACTUALLY RIDICULOUS I THINK DREW BREES IS THE MODEL AMERICAN ATHLETE IN MY OPINION. HE REPRESENTS THE BEST OF WHAT’S POSSIBLE FOR JUST PERFORMANCE AND THAT’S ON THE FIELD OR OFF-THE-FIELD. HE LIVES THESE VIRTUES OF REPRESENTING CHARACTER AND INTEGRITY AND I THINK ACTUALLY, HE’S THE TYPE OF ATHLETE, ESPECIALLY IN TODAYS PROFESSIONAL GAME, THAT OUR KIDS NEED TO BE MODELING THEMSELVES AFTER, AND I FEEL FOR HIM, BUT GOOD FOR HIM HE ACTUALLY PUSHED BACK THE WAY HE DID. I RESPECT HIM GREATLY FOR THAT. PETE: ON ANOTHER TOPIC WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT ALL MORNING WE HAVE TO GET YOUR TAKE, ANTONIO BROWN, HE’S OFFENDED ALMOST EVERYBODY.>> [LAUGHTER] PETE: EXCEPT FOR MAYBE PATS FANS BUT WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS BIZARRE TURN OF EVENTS?>> IT’S REALLY UNBELIEVABLE. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT EARLIER AND WE COME FROM THE ERA WHERE THIS SOCIAL MEDIA STUFF AND THIS ALL ABOUT ME KIND OF ATMOSPHERE IS PUSHED BACK, THE TEAM WOULDN’T HAVE IT AND THE FACT THAT HE KIND OF GETS REWARDED FOR IT GOES TO THE PATRIOTS IS REALLY UNBELIEVABLE AND I JUST HOPE THAT HE CAN WRITE THIS CAREER, HAVE A GREAT YEAR AND HAVE SOME SUCCESS IN NEW ENGLAND ED: WE TALKED ABOUT THAT BECAUSE ON ONE HAND BELLACHICK IS THIS GUY WHOSE LIKE DO YOUR JOB BE LIKE A CHAMPION AND DON’T DO THE NOISE BUT IS HE SORT OF NOW WIN AT ALL COSTS WE’LL TAKE ON SOMEONE LIKE ANTONIO BROWN EVEN THOUGH HE’S NOT REALLY A TEAM PLAYER?>> NOT THAT I’VE EVER BEEN IN THIS SITUATION, BUT [LAUGHTER] YOU KNOW I LOOK AT IT THIS WAY, AND IF HE’S BRINGING OVER WHAT WE’VE SEEN OVER THE LAST MONTH AND A HALF OR SO, THEN IT’S GOING TO TEAR UP THE LOCKER ROOM BECAUSE YOU’LL HAVE YOUNG GUYS WHO THINK THEY CAN GET ALONG WITH THE THINGS HE WAS DOING. A LOT OF YOUNG GUYS FOLLOWING HIM AND TRYING TO ADDRESS SOCIAL MEDIA WISE, GET THE LIKES ON THIS, WHATEVER IT MAY BE IF THAT’S ALLOWED IN THE NEW ENGLAND LOCKER ROOM AND NOW PEOPLE SAY RANDY MOSS SITUATION AND PICK OTHER GUYS LIKE MAYBE GORDON BUT THOSE ARE PARTICULARLY GUYS WHO IN THE SOCIAL MEDIA WORLD WASN’T AS STRONG AS ANTONIO BROWN. ANTONIO BROWN HAS A GROUP THAT FOLLOWS HIM THAT FILMS HIM THAT RECORDS DIFFERENT THINGS AND PUT OUT DIFFERENT THINGS AND WHAT THAT DOES IS IT PUTS A LOT OF APPRECIATE YOU ON FOOTBALL TEAMS BECAUSE THINK OF THE OAKLAND RAIDERS RIGHT NOW. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING? HE HAD A NUMBER ONE WEAPON THAT WOULD HELP HIM SHOW HE’S A FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK AND NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN HE HAS THE SAME FOOTBALL TEAM HE HAD LAST YEAR. ED: HE GAVE UP TWO PICKS FOR THIS.>> IF HE PLAYS THE WAY HE PLAYED LAST YEAR THEN EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT THEY NEED TO GET RID OF HIM. PETE: COMMENT ON THIS BUT ALSO START OUR ROUND OF PREDICTIONS FOR 2019. DOES THIS PUT THE PATS AT THE FRONT OF THAT?>> SO LOOK CULTURE IS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM OF AN ORGANIZATION WHETHER IT’S A PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM, OR A BUSINESS. IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE, AND THIS IS A CLASSIC CASE OF THE BEST PLAYER VERSUS THE RIGHT PLAYER. A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK HE’S THE BEST PLAYER BUT I COMMEND THE RAIDERS FOR MAKING A DECISION THAT THE BEST ISN’T NECESSARILY WHAT IS RIGHT.>> RIGHT.>> AND I THINK HE’S GOING TO A PLACE THAT CULTURE IS EVERYTHING IT IS THE REASON THE PATRIOTS HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL SO THIS IS AN ULTIMATE TEST BUT THERE IS A SAYING IN BOSTON, IN BILL WE TRUST, WE’LL SEE IF THAT ACTUALLY WORKS OUT. I WAS BORN IN BOSTON SO I KIND OF HAVE TO LEAD WITH THE PATRIOT S, BUT –>> OH, GOD. HERE WE GO. ED: I AM SITTING NEXT TO THIS GUY. PETE: WHAT IS YOUR PREDICTION, DO YOUR PUSHBACK THERE BUT ALSO BAKER MAYFIELD, A QUARTERBACK LIKE YOU, MAKES A LOT OF NOISE BUT BACKING IT UP ARE THE CLEVELAND BROWNS FOR REAL?>> HE’S NOT BACKING IT UP YET. PRESEASON IS PRESEASON.>> GOOD FIRST YEAR.>> WE NEED TO SEE THIS IN THE REGULAR SEASON AND WHEN YOU HAVE A LOT OF PERSONALITIES THAT YOU HAVE TO CATER TOO AND THAT INCLUDES THE HEAD COACH AND HE’S YOUNG. A GUY NOT USED TO THIS PARTICULAR POSITION AND ON OFFENSE WHEN YOU HAVE SO MANY PERSONALITIES YOU HAVE TO CATER TO. WHEN YOU HAVE MILES GARRETT THAT MAY BE THE DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR AND ON OFFENSE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT ALL OF THESE GUYS, HE’S STILL GOING TO TRY TO PLAY WHAT ABOUT LANDRY, CALLAWAY, WHAT ABOUT THESE PARTICULAR GUYS THAT YOU HAVE TO CATER TO AND IF THEY COME OUT OF THE BLOCK AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY ARE TWO AND THREE AND TWO AND FOUR, THERE’S GOING TO BE SOME RUMBLINGS GOING ON. ED: YOUR PREDICTION REAL QUICK? FOR SUPER BOWL? WELL SUPER BOWL I’M GOING KANSAS CITY AND OBVIOUSLY PHILADELPHIA. ORACLE I’LL GO WITH THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES. PETE: OF COURSE SO ERIC BESIDES THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS WHO DO YOU SEE WINNING THE SUPER BOWL?>> [LAUGHTER]>> WELL YOU KNOW, I DO LIKE THE SAINTS. I THINK THAT DREW BREES AND THAT OFFENSE ARE VERY GOOD. I WAS GOING WITH KANSAS CITY BUT NOW THE NEW ENGLAND — PETE: THE INFORMATION.>> IF ANTONIO BROWN CAN CONFORM AND STAY WITHIN THE REALMS OF THAT TEAM THEY HAVE A LOT OF WEAPONS OVER THERE. PETE: JUNE QUALITY EDELMAN COULD HAVE A MONSTER SEASON. ED: THEY DOUBLE TEAM ANTONIO BROWN, EDELMAN WILL HAVE A GREAT YEAR.>> BUT THAT DOESN’T SAY THAT MUCH. I MEAN, YOU TALK ABOUT YOU STILL GOT TO PLAY DEFENSE AT THE END OF THE DAY. ED: GENTLEMEN, IT WAS A REALLY GREAT CONVERSATION.

  1. Do they include The Satanic Bible in bring your bible to school day? If Christians don't like that someone might bring The Satanic Bible, they shouldn't be pushing for a special day just for Christians. And it should be called Bring Your Holy Book to School, so other kids will know they can bring their Qurans and Torahs and other holy books. Why do Christians always want to be favored when our Constitution says the government can't establish any religion?

  2. Good man!!! Go Drew! The Wittle Weft is soooo upset that somebody would actually express an opinion that is opposite to their Godless agenda…what a bunch of fascists! I certainly hope that people out there do recognize that Leftist ideology is indeed FASCIST…by definition!

  3. Please stop with all the fake outrage. If he had said koran or any other religious text/book instead of saying bible you’d be accusing him of trying to indoctrinate children.

  4. The "sportscasters" questioned the idea that Brees thinks Bibles are appropriate to bring to school MUCH MORE than they questioned Kaepernick's REAL reason for kneeling or whether kneeling was a reasonable way to protest.

  5. idiots believe in the god theory and the bible corporation, don't sell false idealogy u cant prove, when only Jesus exhisted, someone stole his body it didn't rise into heaven, do u believe in santa clause tooooooooo?

  6. Brees is a great athlete. He is of course free to express his opinions about his religious beliefs or anything else. This latest controversy should reveal to him why most athletes don't do so: it can blow up. And would all these Brees disciples who comment here be ok with other athletes coming out as atheists, telling kids that God didn't create Man, rather Man created God. Would that be ok too?

  7. His cause was correct and promoting a positive message…his mistake… he initially back peddled and fell into the trap. Never apologize for doing right.

  8. It’s funny how anyone who demonstrates Christian values, ethics and morals is ridiculed. Yet, anyone who pushes anti-flag/country, anti-conservative views are lauded. I have huge respect for Drew and anyone who have moral conviction. As they say, “If you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything” 🇺🇸

  9. Wow, a man with class, dignity, ethics, morals and conviction. Wait !, it get’s worse ! I heard he ALSO respects the flag and stands for the anthem !! Everything todays liberal society and media loathes. Hopefully, it won’t get out that he holds the door for his wife, takes her arm crossing streets, says “yes sir/yes ma’am”, OR believes in keeping his word. That may ruin his career ! Well, he sure has my respect.🇺🇸

  10. A TRUE Christian and believer in the word of GOD does not condone or support homosexuality in any way! I am VERY disappointed in Brees. There are 6 verses in the Bible that CLEARLY condemn homosexuality. We should not judge or condemn. That is GOD's job. GOD hates the sin but loves the sinner. It is our "job " to speak the truth and not to be politically correct as Brees has done because of his celebrity. He has compromised his faith! Is he a TRUE Christian? My OPINION is NO. But that is only my OPINION based on GOD's word and Brees words.

  11. Church/State separation is a cornerstone of the Constitution. Anyone publicly promoting children to undermine these values by trying to use them to impose their god on State run schools deserves a "backlash".

  12. So wait, let's get this straight. People are praising Drew Brees for promoting his faith and standing-up for what he believes in, when he's a NFL quarterback. But when someone like Lebron James stands up and voices his concerns politically, Laura Ingraham tells him to "Just shut up and dribble", and people rally behind her. Tell me how there isn't a double-standard there? If one is free to voice his opinion, then so is the other, regardless of the subject or individual.

  13. I thought the left, liberals and Demonicrats we preaching that they accept every one and are all inclusive of different cultures and ideas. The left lies when they open their mouths.

  14. Keep it going Drew GOD bless you and your family your message to our kids is very positive is the right thing to do
    We the people are very proud of you, go Saints I think you will Win the SB

  15. Wait! So bring your bible to school day is a Federal Holiday? No. Where is it written to bring your bible to school today? If you bring your bible to school, then you would then have to agree to bring your Koran to school day as well? Can't we just keep any of these books out of the school? Believe what you want, just leave it out of the schools.

  16. Instead of headlining Drew Breed faces backlash. Let start writing this Drew Breed stands powerfully on his convictions while a bunch of God hating degenerates whine and cry about him.

  17. I'm not super religious but I see no problem with this. As long as no one is hurt or they aren't trying to convert no belivers there is no problem at all

  18. This is what the United States has become 🤦🏻‍♂️. How the hell did we get here?!? Never apologize or back down. We need to stand up for ourselves at this point.

  19. Most idiot "americans" can't read it anyway. Have you heard the idiots coming out of public schools for the last 30 years?

  20. Drew Brees is standing up for Christian values and encourage the youth in the right direction…..people scream & get offended….then u got Ilhan Omar that hates America & stands for Isis sympathizers and these SJW clowns applaud her???!!!

  21. DREW BREES is THE MAN!
    Never Back Down!
    Love The Lord w/ All Your Heart & Soul
    AND
    LOVE Your Neighbor as Yourself!
    Easy Brees-e!
    Thanks Mr Brees!

  22. There are people who follow GOD all the way! We will not embrace what HE condemns or condemns what HE embraces! We will not be going to hell sharing your eternal darkness!

  23. He should have paid attention to the fact it was Focus on Familys event. If you support something a hateful organization is doing then dont support it. Make up your own. He has good intentions that is obvious. Just dont be a snowflake when there is backlash. Its tiresome hearing people angry and whining about backlash from supporting these 2 faced organizations. He said it himself.

  24. Only sinniers who know in their hearts theyre sinners are even gonna care. They want all of us to go down with their mentally ill morally bankrupt asses. I will pass.

  25. The founders of this country would tar and feather all the leftists in this country. They would tar and feather most of the media. There are not enough professonial athletes who claim to be Christians defending the faith, why?, money? prestige?, UNMITIGATED ignorance of the God breathed word?

  26. Youre suppose to bring your hormone blocker to school. Remember g0ys, its natural and normal to chop off your wang and call yourself a girl. The Bible is ebil though!

  27. What about bibles morals and ethics do they have a problem with. The fck8ng liberals need to stop fantasizing about a utopian communist government. And start living according to the Bible. The way to a happiness is written 8n the Bible. It would be heaven on Earth if everyone followed the bible. OH BUT THEY HATE GOD, THEY HATE HIS ETHICS AND THEY HATE HIS MORALS. LOGICALLY 9NE HAS TO ASSUME THEIR IDEALOLGY IS THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE OF THE TEACHINGS OF Our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. And they will burn in HELL. God is alive and real. The Holy Spirit blesses good Christian without rest. The devil's minions are growing larger and larger. What a pity.
