NBA Players Are No Longer Allowed To Thank God
NEW YORK - A memo sent by the NBA states that players are no longer allowed to say "thank God" in any way shape or form. This applies during international and nationwide (US) TV broadcasts of games.

"We do not want to offend those who have a different belief," said NBA commissioner Adam Silver. "I respect everyone's belief, which is why the board and I has agreed to implement this rule during widely broadcasted games."

The memo stated that during local broadcasts of up to a state level, players are allowed to celebrate their belief on-screen in any way shape or form. It also stated that other forms of praising a deity is no longer allowed on-screen.

The issue was brought up to the former NBA commissioner David Stern's attention late in 2009 when multiple complaints from non-Christian fans stated that they were offended by the celebration of the Christian God on-screen.

The most notable complaint being on NBA star Stephen Curry who recently won a NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors.

Curry was reportedly disappointed with the NBA board's decision and has filed a petition to uplift the restriction.

    See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
