FINALLY! Ballplayers Go Unwoke

It’s “Pride Month” for the sexual identity freaks, aka those members of the LGBTQ too stupid to have pride in who they are all year long.

But to each his own.

My personal truth is to celebrate Kevin Jackson all damn year. And I’m adventurous enough to attend Disney World during “Pride” time, and wear a rainbow shirt that declares, “I’m not gay and this is JUST A FRICKING RAINBOW!”

If you watch any TV, you are bombarded with rainbows and obviously gay people. And almost every TV promo or ad involves a celebration of “gay pride”. All this is meant to desensitize us to the freaks who look like circus attractions mostly.

It’s not like Americans haven’t been exposed to the gay life or gay people. We’ve seen butch women and overly effeminate men ad nauseum on TV and in movies. In many cases, these people represent the most iconic cast members. Remember the character Hollywood in Mannequin or Serge in Rush Hour? Hysterical scene-stealing performances.

So we get it. There are gay people in the world. And America actually showcases them in all their glory. But do we really need a month for their special interest, ergo their sexual proclivities?

I’m glad to find this story about some people who refuse to buy into the whole LGBTQ Gestapo. As reported by The Washington Times,

At least five Tampa Bay Rays players declined to wear rainbow-colored logos on their uniforms over the weekend as part of the team’s annual effort to celebrate LGBT Pride Month.

The group of players, which included pitchers Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs, and Ryan Thompson, opted to peel off the rainbow logo and wear the standard Rays hat for the team’s 16th annual Pride Night celebration Saturday. The event coincided with a Chicago White Sox game.

The team declined to provide a breakdown of how many players declined to wear the patches and hats with the LGBT pride flag, though more than half of the team appeared to be donning the rainbow garb at the game.

How many of these players wore the LGBTQ nonsense just to play along with the “woke” culture; because they didn’t want to get called out?

The article continues,

Adam was chosen by team officials to speak for the players who did not want to wear the pride-themed items. He told the Tampa Bay Times in an interview that the majority of the group based the decision on religious beliefs and not wanting to encourage what he described as LGBT “behavior.”

“A lot of it comes down to faith, to like a faith-based decision,” Adam told the outlet. “So it’s a hard decision. Because ultimately we all said what we want is them to know that all are welcome and loved here. But when we put it on our bodies, I think a lot of guys decided that it’s just a lifestyle that maybe — not that they look down on anybody or think differently — it’s just that maybe we don’t want to encourage it if we believe in Jesus, who’s encouraged us to live a lifestyle that would abstain from that behavior, just like [Jesus] encourages me as a heterosexual male to abstain from sex outside of the confines of marriage. It’s no different.”

“It’s not judgmental. It’s not looking down,” the pitcher continued. “It’s just what we believe the lifestyle he’s encouraged us to live, for our good, not to withhold. But again, we love these men and women, we care about them, and we want them to feel safe and welcome here.”

Great explanation for “love the sinner, not the sin”.

None of us should be forced to agree with anything. It should go without saying that sports teams and corporations support LGBTQ people as humans. I’ve never seen a store refuse to sell to somebody based on sexuality. Nor have I seen a professional (or amateur) sports franchise refuse service to gays. So why “Pride Night”?

It’s not to celebrate breaking a barrier to get more rights for gays.
