MADISON, Wis., March 21, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- The NFL is coming against the state of Georgia for potentially passing a bill that would protect Christians who do not support gay marriage. The NFL is joined by the NBA and NCAA.
The NFL is threatening to move a potential Super Bowl from Georgia to another state if the bill is passed. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy and Atlanta Falcon's owner Arthur Blank are trying to stop House Bill 757 that would protect Christians.
The bill has passed both houses of the Georgia Legislature, but has not been signed by Republican Gov. Nathan Deal. Many Georgia businesses are against the bill including Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, Google, Home Depot, Porsche, and Wells Fargo.
"This is another example of the gay agenda coming out against Christians," states 4 Winds Christian Athletics president Steve McConkey. "The NFL and other sport associations, plus big business, are joining forces with the gay elite establishment to penalize Christians if they do not support homosexuality. This is an attack on Christian freedom."
4 Winds Christian Athletics is a sports ministry located near the University of Wisconsin football stadium in Madison. They stand up for Christian athletes worldwide.
In 2003, Steve McConkey was the only sports minister publicly standing against the International Olympic Committee for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. He has publicly opposed the International Olympic Committee, USA Olympic Committee, NCAA, and other associations for their support of homosexuality.
McConkey recently protested the IOC because they changed their transgender policies to allow men to compete as women with only a year of hormone therapy, reversing the 2003 rule requiring surgery and two years of hormone therapy.
