Alabama Pastor Shreds Nikes During Kaepernick Protest Sermon

Alabama Pastor Shreds Nikes During Kaepernick Protest Sermon

An Alabama pastor on Sunday used a pair of scissors during a sermon to destroy Nike items after learning the apparel company endorsed Colin Kaepernick.

Regarding Nike naming Kaepernick as one of the faces of the company's 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign, Strahan said, "They're smart".

Christian actor Kevin Sorbo, known for his roles in movies like "God's Not Dead" and "Soul Surfer", recently poked fun at Nike over the company's ad campaign with former National Football League star Colin Kaepernick.

Asked by DeGeneres about the risk Nike possibly took in promoting such a polarizing figure, Strahan replied, "They're smart, they know what they're doing".

The move drew both intense praise and disgust from critics and supporters of Kaepernick, who took a knee during the playing of the national anthem before an NFL game nearly two years ago in protest of police brutality in America. Today the former NFL player revealed he too would kneel with the current players if he were now in the league.

Patriots sign former Broncos WR Bennie Fowler
In the Patriots' 27-20 opening win over the Texans, Phillip Dorsett impressed with seven catches for 66 yards and a touchdown. During final roster cuts, some believed the Bills should give Coleman more time to adapt to his new team's offense.

The protest centered on police brutality and racial injustice in America, but opponents argue the kneeling is disrespectful to the American flag and military. "I would have had a conversation with my father, and based on that conversation, and conversations, I've had with him, I'm pretty sure I would have".

As for the advertisement, Eva and Jonathan Coyle say Nike had the right to make whatever they want ... but they feel like using an athlete with the slogan "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything" slights the sacrifices being made by law enforcement/armed forces.

Strahan added that Americans' ability to peacefully protest is one of the things that is attractive about this country.

The NFL changed their anthem policy in May, requiring all players on the field to stand and show respect during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner. "Because when you look at other sports, they kind of have it together".

"I know why [Kaepernick] knelt".
