James Robison to Trump, Protesting Athletes: ‘Come to the Table of Reason’
“It’s not just the American flag and the National Anthem that’s being abused and dishonored,” says James Robison in a new Facebook post. “It’s actually freedom itself. I think most Americans have forgotten the value of freedom and the high cost of protecting and preserving freedom.” The Stream’s founder responded to football players currently protesting the National Anthem … and to those raising a stink about it.
Known years ago as “God’s Angry Voice,” James knows first-hand that anger can’t heal the illness in the nation. “We don’t need to go the way we are. … I think we need to be very careful about how we protest. After all, we’re protesting protests,” he said. “We’re not coming to the table of reason and we’re not praying.”
James asked viewers to pray for President Trump and the nation’s leaders and not sell short the power of prayer. “[Prayer] moves God, it moves people and prayer moves us.”
