Craig James Suing FOX Sports For Religious Discrimination
Craig James is not going away quietly after being fired one week into his analyst job at Fox Sports.
James who was fired by the network for making homophobic comments in 2012, is now accusing Fox Sports of religious discrimination.
James has hired lawyers, and told Breitbart.com that they plan to do something about it.
“I was shocked that my personal religious beliefs were not only the reason for Fox Sports firing me but I was completely floored when I read stories quoting Fox Sports representatives essentially saying that people of faith are banned from working at FOX Sports,” James told Breitbart.com. “That is not right and surely someone made a terrible mistake.”
James didn’t stop there either.
“I have worked in broadcasting for twenty-four years and have always treated my colleagues with respect and dignity regardless of their background or personal beliefs. I believe it is essential in our business to maintain professional relationships with people from a diverse background and have tolerance for those of different beliefs. I have never discussed my faith while broadcasting and it has never been an issue until now.” James’s attorneys at Liberty Institute have sent a demand letter, given exclusively to Breitbart News, to Fox Sports. The letter is embedded below.
Craig James has to understand that regardless of his religious beliefs we live in a sensitive time, and comments like that won’t be accepted, even by Fox which has been known to respect freedom of speech when it suits them.
