I promised to journal the emerging backlash against LGBTQ Pride month.
For years, as the article points out, we all just bent over and took it...but, no more.
The backlash is small and unorganized yet, maybe, all the more significant because it's a movement of people.
This was the organization's 16th Pride Night event at Tropicana Field. For the first time, the Rays added rainbow-colored logos on their uniforms, specifically the "TB" on their caps and the sunburst on their right jersey sleeves.
Jason Adam was asked to comment on their decision ó his response was strong.
ďSo itís a hard decision. Because ultimately we all said what we want is them to know that all are welcome and loved here,Ē he said. ďBut when we put it on our bodies, I think a lot of guys decided that itís just a lifestyle that maybe ó not that they look down on anybody or think differently ó itís just that maybe we donít want to encourage it if we believe in Jesus, whoís 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. Itís no different."
Hard to argue against players wanting freedom to express themselves based on their religious backgrounds. Major League Baseball, and most other major networks, have done everything they can do make people appear anti-gay for failing to celebrate gay pride, but these five are doing well standing up for themselves. It should be understood that we all donít have to agree on each otherís life decisions/sexual orientations because we can mind our own business. Some people just want to make decisions that best suit them and let others do their thing. Thatís how life was before social media and many would like that way of life to continue.
That a backlash against LGBTQ Pride month is brewing can't be denied. How much more serious it will be next year can't be known. What it means, I don't know. I'm pretty sure that it will be bigger, more fierce and better organized next year.
Understand. pb thinks that this backlash is political, not homophobic.
The LGBTQ Pride celebration has become political. pb posted about the US government taunting the Roman Catholic Church by flying a LGBT flag at the Vatican. That's just ugly, as much as Curt embraces it.
I also mentioned that, a few days ago, I listened to a chat between Guy Benson (the gay guy Curt's never heard of) and Jason Rantz, also gay, about their objections and misgivings about Pride month. Both are openly gay. Both hate the Pride fiasco.
What I think is happening is that LGBT Pride has become woke and political and that, as the song says, is "stinking to high heaven."
The country has had enough of Blue MAGA Swampcult progressive wokeness. And, LGBTers are feeling the pain.
