Liberals are determined to stamp out Christianity from American life.
Recently a left-wing activist group in Georgia banned a high school football coach from praying with his team before and after games.
Now one professional athlete is opening up about backlash she faced for being serious about her Christian beliefs.
Soccer player Jaelene Hinkle is a devout Christian who came under fire for her faith.
Hinkle excelled enough to be a member of the dominant women’s national team, but declined an invitation to the team last year over the unilateral decision for the squad to wear a jersey promoting the radical homosexual agenda.
Hinkle is undoubtedly a good and supportive teammate, otherwise she wouldn’t have been invited back to the national team. However, she didn’t feel she should be forced to endorse a lifestyle that clashes with her faith.
This world is falling farther and farther away from God… All that can be done by believers is to continue to pray.
This episode shows just how pervasive left-wing politics are. It’s just understood that all players should wear the jersey. The team should’ve allowed players to wear a voluntary patch in lieu of a mandatory jersey.
For her “sin,” Hinkle was not invited back to the team this year, and was booed by “tolerant” Portland fans in the National Women’s Soccer League.
To her credit, Hinkle stood up to the abuse and said she would make the same decision because of her Christian faith. Her stance didn’t demean or belittle anyone. She simply didn’t want to promote someone else’s beliefs that came into conflict with hers.
Prominent Christians increasingly find themselves under attack. Tim Tebow was mocked for his prayer, celibacy, and pro-life advocacy. The criticism got to the point where fans and players delighted in his NFL failures.
More recently, Vice President Mike Pence was ripped for his religious faith and called “crazy” by members of The View, a depot of left-wing nonsense.
Christianity has been under endless assault from the left for a long time, because God must be replaced by the state in order for leftism truly to take hold.
There’s a reason why the leftist messiah Karl Marx said that religion is “the opium of the people.”
It’s difficult to push people to violent, covetous revolution if they are tempered by pesky things such as morality.
The first two actions undertaken by every leftist authoritarian regime are to seize guns, and stamp out religion. In 2008, when Obama said midwestern voters “cling to guns and religion,” it sent a chill down the spine of conservatives and Christians.
Western civilization was built on Judeo-Christian values, which must be preserved. Societies that stray too far away from that become ripe for authoritarianism, something that’s creeping into Europe.
In the United Kingdom, free speech and the rights of the individual have been sacrificed at the altar of political correctness.
British citizens can be jailed for offensive tweets, which is hellishly Orwellian.
Hinkle’s position in the culture war is important because faith in God shouldn’t be mocked or scuttled by leftist politics.
Atheism is not a bridge to a more moral society. There’s nothing wrong with being Christian, no matter how much the left attempts to demonize it.
