An NFL star’s Facebook post on the persecution of Christians is going viral.

New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson went “On The Record” to discuss his Facebook post.

Watson wrote:



Watson told Greta Van Susteren that the post wasn’t just about ISIS. He explained that it was really about how he feels when he sees images of Christians being slaughtered “merely because they believe in Jesus Christ.”

Watson said that Americans sometimes feel separated from Christian persecution overseas. 

He cautioned, “It won’t be long, I believe, until we may be facing some of the same things here.”

“We have to […] as Christians kind of circle the wagons and really wake up from our slumber and realize that everybody’s not for us,” he said.
