The Birmingham Herald reports:
The Rev. Mack Morris took a hold of an old Nike headband and a wristband, held them both up before a packed church, and cut them. “I ain’t using that no more,” said Morris, the senior pastor at Woodridge Baptist Church in west Mobile during his weekly Sunday sermon. “I’ve bought my last pair of Nike shoes,” Morris said.
“He’s inked a contract with Nike,” Morris said during his sermon. “No one knows or is telling how many multi-million dollars that is going to be simply because he won’t stand when the national anthem is sung.”
Morris continued, “America may not be the best country in the world and we have a lot of faults, but I tell you what, a lot of folks died for the sake of what the flag represents.” Morris received a standing applause.
