Is it offensive to you when NFL players perform an act of worship to their God on the field?
NFL kickers often do 'the sign of the cross' before a kick on the field also. Should players leave their worship at home and off the field?
No, it is not offensive. It is superfluous. I would only be offended if the NFL REQUIRED everyone attending or playing to do the same thing (make the sign of the cross or pray the same prayer or wear a certain symbol).
An act of worship is not required for the game of football, certainly. I'm sure some people think that god is on their side or something, but this requires of god to be against the "other" side! So, to me it is funny to watch people perform "acts of worship" to try and gain a "win".
No it doesn't bother me in the slightest.
However one would hope if there is a God he's not "choosing sides" on a football game or a boxing match!
We have far more pressing matters!
It's not offensive to me, just freedom of expression. I saw Rivers do this while playing the Vikes on Sunday. If anything, it made me nervous, (wish Bridgewater would try this sometime when the Vikes are down).
As long as it's not holding up play, I don't see anything wrong with it.
