In some heartwarming news that not all professional athletes have bowed down to the rainbow mafia, several members of the Tampa Bay Rays, an American professional baseball team based in St. Petersburg, Florida, have declined to wear the LGBTQ logos on their uniforms for ‘Pride Night’ much to the wailing and gnashing of leftists teeth.

The idea to have the gay swag comes from Ray’s President Matt Silverman, who told the Tampa Bay Times:

“Our Pride Nights continue to grow both in terms of visibility and participation. By doing this, we extend an invitation not just for this game but for all of our games that the LGBTQ+ community is invited, welcomed and celebrated.”

The Times reports that “pitchers Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs and Ryan Thompson were among those who did not, electing to peel off the burst logo and wear the standard hat.” In a statement, reliever Jason Adams cited his faith as a reason why he could not do it, saying:

“A lot of it comes down to faith, to like a faith-based decision, 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. 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.”
