Benjamin Watson says that the source of our present cultural confusion is a society without God
New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson, an outspoken Christian, has weighed in on the “bathroom” issue prompted by recent legislation passed in certain states as well as actions by stores like Target allowing men to use women’s bathrooms. In a comprehensive Facebook post, he wrote:
“Fear is a powerful motivator. It has forced me to be silent when I would rather speak and to shout loudly when I would rather sit in silence.
