Former Patriots running back is suing Fox Sports

Craig James the former New England Patriots running back Craig James is suing Fox Sports because he is claiming he was fired in 2013 for his beliefs in traditional marriage. James’ Christian views cost him his job, and now he is suing.

“Fox Sports fired James for one reason only: his religious beliefs about marriage,” the suit accuses, Breitbart reported. “In so doing, Fox Sports violated the law. Specifically, Fox Sports violated the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act and Texas contract law along with a myriad of equitable principles.”

James names several defendants in the suit, including Fox Sports President Eric Shanks and Fox Network Groups President Randy Freer.

“James never discussed his beliefs about marriage or religion in general on the job,” the suit notes. “Nevertheless, Fox Sports informed James that Fox Sports fired him due to his beliefs about marriage, which were explicitly religious.”
