Users of the popular social media giant Twitter.com criticized NFL officials for forcing injured quarterback Robert Griffin III to turn his religious t-shirt inside out before meeting the press.
The incident took place at the Washington Redskins’ post-game press conference on Sunday.
Griffin wore a t-shirt with large letters on the front that read “Know Jesus Know Peace.” But the NFL has a strict policy governing what players can wear on game day, even when they are not playing. The policy forbids players from displaying personal messages on their attire “either in writing or illustration” and the messages cannot “honor or commemorate individuals,” including Jesus.
Frustrated Christians took to Twitter.com to express their anger at NFL officials for censoring religious messages while allowing inappropriate public displays of affection such as two men tongue kissing and licking cake off each other’s faces on draft day.
The Redskins starting quarterback dislocated his ankle against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
