Several Tampa Bay Rays players took a pass on gay pride by refusing to wear Pride Night LGBTQ uniforms.

The players cited their belief in Jesus Christ as the reason for rejecting the celebration of the ideology.

“In an effort to make their commitment [to the LGBTQ+ community] more visible, the Rays this year decided to follow the lead of the Giants and add rainbow-colored logos to their Pride Night uniforms, to the 'TB' on their caps, and a sunburst on their right jersey sleeves,” reports the Tampa Bay Times.

However, numerous players chose to peel off the pride logo and wear their normal hats, including Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs, and Ryan Thompson.

Leftist Twitter users accused the players who chose not to display support of being “homophobic.”

However, pitcher Jason Adam explained that the reason for the players’ refusal to signal their virtue was that gay pride contradicts Christianity.

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

“So it’s a hard decision," he added.

"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," he continued.

“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,” he added.

“But again, we love these men and women, we care about them, and we want them to feel safe and welcome here,” he added.

And so the precedent has been set – if you refuse to display loyalty to one of the regime’s primary political front groups (the LGBT lobby), simply because you hold different beliefs, you’re a bigoted homophobe subject to possible cancellation.
