The left continues to politicize American activities that used to unite our country. This was recently seen as the Tampa Bay Rays added a rainbow-colored logo to their caps and on the right sleeve of their jerseys for Saturday’s game against the Chicago White Sox. However, five brave members of the Tampa Bay Rays refused to succumb to the woke mob and did not wear the LGBTQ uniform for Saturday’s game.
Tampa Bay Rays tweeted out this photo of their LGBTQ uniforms:

Leftist activism is not new for the Tampa Bay Rays. The new LGBTQ baseball uniforms were meant to signify the Tampa Bay Rays’ 16th annual “Pride Night”. Rays president Matt Silverman gave the following reason on why he believes “Pride Night” is an important tradition for the baseball team:
“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.”
In addition to the LGBTQ uniforms, the Tampa Bay Rays handed out mini-LGBTQ flags and adorned the field’s mount and stadium roof with pride colors. By doing this, the Tampa Bay Rays sent a clear message to attendees: those that do not support the LGBTQ agenda are not welcome.
The five Tampa Bay Rays members who refused to adorn the LGBTQ uniform are Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey springs, and Ryan Thompson.
One of the pitchers for the Rays, Ryan Thompson, gave a faith-based rationale for rejecting the LGBTQ uniform:
“If I believe the bible is infallible and that everlasting life is attainable, yet I bow down to public opinion in the name of tolerance, is that love? I don’t think so. Instead, my view is to love my neighbor from all walks of life.”
Thompson is exactly right in his analysis of the issue. While leftists claim that the pride flag, and other LGBTQ symbolism, represents inclusion and acceptance, it does not. For example, the pride flag rejects religious people as bigots for viewing homosexuality and transgenderism as sin. Therefore, wearing the pride flag makes one inherently intolerant towards religious groups, and, in turn, impossible to “love my neighbor from all walks of life.”
Another member of the Tampa Bay Rays, Jason Adam, stated the following on why he refused to wear the pride uniform:
“When we put it [LGBTQ symbolism] 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.”
In the era of woke cultural dominance and cancel culture, it was a brave move by the five Tampa Bay players not to wear the pride uniforms. While conservatives should not support the Tampa Bay Rays increasing politicization, these players should certainly be commended for their refusal to bend to the woke mob.
