I was watching a video by Colorado Buffaloes’ wide receiver Kaleb Mathis which was produced by Deion Sanders’ son Deion Sanders, Jr., who is the founder of Well Off Media. It was a question that Deion, Jr. asked one of the players that moved me to write this post.
There’s a part in the video where Kaleb and a few of the players are having lunch, and the volume is so low on the video, I couldn’t make out everything that was being said, but apparently, running back Dylan Edwards must have made a comment about preachers that it sparked Deion, Jr. to ask, “What do you have against preachers, bro?”
At this point, I lost interest in watching the video because I found that disturbing. Not the question itself, but the way he went about doing it. He put him on the spot, and I can tell by the look on Dylan’s face that he wasn’t ready for that. First of all, Dylan is entitled to his opinion and beliefs, but if Deion, Jr. felt a certain way about what was said, he could’ve talked to him after filming, versus putting him on the spot.
Granted, he wasn’t asking me that question, but still, I’ll tell you what I have against them. They’re con artists; they sell pipe dreams and false hope to people. As their Bible would say, they’re wolves in sheep’s clothing. They claim to have heard from this “God,” and this is who told them to go and preach, and they can’t prove any of these claims. This is what I would’ve told him, camera or no camera. I’m on record (via blogs) discussing these types of topics, so it wouldn’t have caught me off-guard, nor would he be exposing me.
There’s more I want to say regarding that, but I’m saving it for an upcoming book. This is one of my problems with religious people, and I’ve noticed this mainly with “Black” religious people. Most of them can’t seem to accept someone who doesn’t believe what they believe, and they will try force their beliefs on others, which usually leads to turning the person away, versus convincing them to walk that path.
