I have said for many years that there is no greater privilege or blessing than being born an American Christian: Likewise, there is no greater responsibility.
Today Fox News reported a story about Grant Napear who was an NBA announcer for the Sacramento Kings NBA team since 1988.
I don’t know Grant Napear. I had never heard of him before. Honestly, I wish I still had never heard of him.
On Sunday evening, Napear responded on Twitter to former Kings star DeMarcus Cousins, who asked him to comment on the Black Lives Matter movement in the wake of the May 25 death of George Floyd while in police custody.
“Hey!!!! How are you? Thought you forgot about me. Haven’t heard from you in years. ALL LIVES MATTER…EVERY SINGLE ONE!!!,” Napear responded.
As a result of his Twitter reply saying “All lives matter,” he was fired from his position as an NBA announcer and he lost his sports radio show on a radio station. His comment was reported to be an offense to those who tout that it is “black lives that matter”.
Grant Napear: All lives matter Tweet
“Grant Napear has resigned from the Sacramento Kings,” the team said, according to The Sacramento Bee. “We thank him for his contributions to the team and wish him all the best.”
Meanwhile, the radio station network at which Napear hosted a program canceled him
Napear had faithfully served this team as an announcer for 32 years: Both they and the radio station fired him for simply saying that “All lives matter”.
The stupidity of these actions exceed every boundary of normalcy and decency.
Napear said “I want to thank the fans for their overwhelming love and support,” … “I will always remain a part of Kings nation in my heart.”
Well, all lives DO matter.
God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”Genesis 1:26-27
“Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: but in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him” Acts 10:34-35
1Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Likewise, the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence says that:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
Yes, Black live DO matter: White lives also matter. Brown lives matter too.
All lives matter
