"How ethical it is to support football since it is a sport that 'wreaks devastation on brains and condemns many players to diminished brain functioning, premature dementia, and the like.' ... Instead of asking if supporting football is moral or not I believe we should be asking ourselves as players, coaches, and fans how can we use the gifts, talents and abilities God has given us to create a culture in sports where we demonstrate the spirit of God and work for his glory."
Posting about the morality of supporting football as well as ethics in football from a Christian perspective from In All Things - an online hub committed to the claim that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ has implications for the entire world.
Posting is part two of a response to Martin E. Marty's article of January 26, 2015, Football and Ethics which can be found at https://divinity.uchicago.edu/sightings/football-and-ethics-martin-e-marty. Part one can be viewed at http://digitalcollections.dordt.edu/faculty_work/140/
