The U.S. Soccer nationals teams for men and women announced that they will be wearing rainbow jerseys for Pride month in June.
Jaelene Hinkle, a defender for the North Carolina Courage has withdrawn from two international matches this month after the announcement citing “personal reasons.” She tweeted the Bible verse, Colossians 3:23, which says:
“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.”
“Jesus didn’t come to save those who already believed in Him. He came so that the lost, rejected, and abandoned men and women would find Him and believe. I believe with every fiber in my body that what was written 2,000 years ago in the Bible is undoubtedly true. It’s not a fictional book. It’s not a pick and choose what you want to believe. You either believe it, or you don’t. This world may change, but Christ and His Word NEVER will.”
She also said:
“My heart is that as Christians we don’t begin to throw a tantrum over what has been brought into law today, but we become that much more loving. That through our love, the lost, rejected and abandoned find Christ. The rainbow was a convent made between God and all his creation that never again would the world be flooded as it was when He destroyed the world during Noah’s time.”
This is the rant she posted after the Obergefell rulings back in 2015. It’s a freaking rainbow jersey. I don’t get what the big deal is.
