Yahoo! News reports that former Sacramento Kings TV play-by-play personality and KHTK, Sacramento sports talk host Grant Napear is amending his wrongful termination suit against Bonneville International and is citing religious beliefs for the statement he made that cost him his positions. A California federal judgeim dismissed Napear’s suit last month but gave him 21 days to file an amended suit. Napear was let go after former Kings center DeMarcus Cousins asked him his opinion of Black Lives Matter and he replied, “ALL LIVES MATTER … EVERY SINGLE ONE.” In the amended filing, Napear says that his response was “an expression of his sincerely held religious beliefs as a member of the Unitarian Church and his opinion with regards to the sanctity of all lives.” Napear adds that “he is a lifelong and devout member of the Unitarian Universalist Church and embraces the seven principles espoused by the church, including the ‘inherent worth and dignity of every person.’” Read the Yahoo! story here.
