On Friday, Nov. 28th, New Orleans Saints Tight End Ben Watson went on CNN to explain his opinion about the events in Ferguson, Missouri. He does a great job explaining that the root of problems in the world, including those in Ferguson, is “not a SKIN problem, it is a SIN problem.” His personal and impassioned essay was originally written to vet his own emotions and thoughts on the results of the grand jury and riots in the St. Louis suburb but he posted it to Facebook after his wife encouraged him to do so.
During the interview, Watson begins to preach that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only solution to the sin problem. Not coincidentally, the video feed is cut before he can proclaim the full death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ to redeem man from sin.
