Hate Speech Protest at ESPN Offices


On Friday, January 25, at noon the Christian Defense Coalition plans a prayer vigil and protest outside the ESPN Headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut. This is in response to ESPN's anchorwoman Ms. Dana Jacobson's profanity and hate speech in which she said: "F--- Jesus", "F--- Notre Dame" and "F--- touch down Jesus" at a celebrity roast in Atlantic City, NJ recently.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney is the Director of the Christian Defense Coalition and he believes that a weeks suspension is not enough from ESPN. He believes ESPN needs to immediately release Ms. Jacobson from her position in the same way ABC released Isaiah Washington when he used an offensive word publicly against a cast member.

I believe hate speech is hate speech and should not be tolerated or accepted from anyone. Why is it that hate speech against Christianity is often over looked? Hate speech is hurtful and degrading to everyone. It needs to end.

Proverbs 11:9 "With his mouth the godless destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous escape."

Proverbs 8:13 "To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech."
