Ben Watson of the New Orleans Saints scores a touchdown that he says “was a long time comin'” after a week in which he earned plaudits and scorn for a faith-filled post on Facebook. (Facebook)

That’s one way to interpret what happened when NFL player Benjamin Watson was on CNN talking about his popular Facebook post regarding his reaction to the Ferguson, Missouri, grand jury decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson. He was abruptly cut off seconds after mentioning “that Jesus Christ died for our sins.”
