It might be popular opinion that people of colour would support Black Lives Matter movement however, this was not the case for England rugby star Billy Vunipola.

The rugby player refused to take a knee for the movement because his Christian faith does not support “burning churches and Bibles”.

“We were asked if we wanted to take a knee or not, and what I saw in terms of that movement [Black Lives Matter] was not aligned with what I believe in. They were burning churches and Bibles. I can’t support that,” said the Saracens player, in an interview with the ‘The Good, The Bad & The Rugby’ podcast quoted by the Christian Institute.

“Even though I am a person of colour, I’m still more a person of, I guess, Jesus,” added the athlete of Australian decent, whose parents are from the Polynesian kingdom of Tonga.

In recent times various statues of Christian missionaries have been brought down amid the ongoing Black Lives Matter unrest.

Unfortunately this has transformed into a protest over the death of George Floyd to general agitation against Western society, symbols of Western history, and various alleged social injustices such as “systemic racism” and “white privilege”.



In Florida, a statue of Jesus himself was beheaded at a Roman Catholic Church, just weeks after prominent Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King had declared that “All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends” should “come down”, denouncing them as “a gross form white supremacy.”

Anti-Christian BLM activism has not occurred in the United States alone. There has been cases of such in the Netherlands.


A mosaic of the Virgin Mary and the infant Jesus dedicated to the memory of Free Polish soldiers who had helped to liberate the country during the Second World War was defaced with the ‘BLM’ slogan in June.
