(LifeSiteNews)— On Sunday afternoon, June 12, Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff made what the media is calling a “historic Pride appearance” at Capitol Pride in Washington, D.C.

Harris and Emhoff took the stage with “Symone,” the winner of season 13 of the TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race, and the Vice President’s official Instagram page promptly featured a photo of Harris hugging the scantily-clad drag queen with the tagline “Love is love. Happy Pride!” 

We have heard a lot about the “dignity of the office” over these past few years, and somebody will have to explain to me how the Vice President of the United States hugging a drag queen wearing nearly no clothing in public is dignified. Our definitions have changed a lot over the past decade, which is one of the reasons an all-out culture war is being fought over drag shows for children and LGBT indoctrination of minors. But surely—surely—sane people can agree that what happened at Capitol Pride on Sunday with children present was disgusting. 

I think that the Vice President has a few things to explain. For example, does she endorse the actions of a nearly naked man with breasts twerking in front of a police officer while children march behind them? 

Or the presence of a toddler so young he constantly wandered and had to be redirected by an adult while waving a hand-drawn rainbow sign amidst public displays of nudity and debauchery? 

Or multiple children watching as costume-clad members of the “Puppy Play” community and a “theybie” walked on outfitted in sex gear? 

Or how about a marcher stopping to grasp the railings and twerk as a crowd of children walked past? In fact, the hundreds of children exposed to these public displays of sex acts?

Five Tampa Bay Rays pitchers are now subject to a media witch-hunt after refusing to wear LGBT symbols on their hats and shirts because of their faith in God. 

One ESPN commentator called the men "bigoted" for supposedly using "religious exemption BS" to say "no" to the Pride Month clothing.

It's time to stand with these men against the intolerance of the radical left.

SIGN the petition to support the MLB players opposing LGBT Pride

The careers and lives of the five pitchers — Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs and Ryan Thompson — will be greatly harmed if we abandon them to the cancel culture of their critics, like ESPN's Sarah Spain.

“That religious exemption BS is used in sports and otherwise also allows for people to be denied health care, jobs, apartments, children, prescriptions, all sorts of rights,” Spain claimed. 

“We have to stop tiptoeing around it because we’re trying to protect people who are trying to be bigoted...” she continued.

These men should be celebrated for their bravery, but instead are being derided for sticking up for their Christian beliefs. 

SIGN the petition to stand with these five brave Christian players

People are being bullied into conformity by an LGBT movement that claims to be about tolerance and diversity, unless you're a devout Christian.

“Now they’re trying to cancel people for not wearing a gay pride patch,” the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh remarked. 

“This is always the trajectory for the Left. First they demand tolerance, then acceptance, then celebration, then participation. Learn to say no to these people or it will never end.”

It's hard to imagine sports columnists like Nancy Armour of USA Today attacking Muslims for their rejection of Pride propaganda, but she sees no problem in attacking these devout Christians.

We hope Nancy Armour's reading of the New Testament extends to Romans 1:25-27.

Most commentators simply don't understand that loving everyone as a Christian means telling people certain actions are extremely harmful to the soul.

SIGN: These men were right to reject the LGBT Pride insignias on their hats and jerseys.

Indeed, by peeling off the rainbow logo from their jerseys and wearing the standard team hat, the five pitchers have taken a stand against an ideology that's antithetical to Christianity.

Major League Baseball (MLB) and every other professional sports league have promoted LGBTQ causes in recent years, including showcasing a “marriage” proposal between two homosexuals in front of a stadium packed with families.   

Sports are no longer safe from the tenticles of the LGBT movement, with players being strong-armed into virtue signaling for causes they disagree with.

It's time for people to stand up and say "Enough".

SIGN the petition and play your part in resisting the advances of intolerant wokeism into every sphere of public life.

Thank you for signing and sharing this petition.

I suspect the Vice President, who with Joe Biden was alleged to have “brought dignity back” to the White House, thinks all of this is a good thing. One reporter asked a fellow(?) dressed as a leopard if it werepositive that there were “so many children” at Capitol Pride, and the leopard was effusive. “I think it’s a great thing because I feel like making kids aware of what is around them is important” so they become more accepting, and “if you’re not capable, it’s a developmental problem, and this is how we fix that problem.”  

The interviewer asked the leopard what he thought of the kids seeing (adult) nudity and twerking. He was effusive again. “Sometimes when you grow up, you see some nudity. You understand that. It helps you to understand who you are.”  

Another woman concurred. “I absolutely love it because I work at a Montessori daycare, and we are very open sexuality based with our children,” she said. “We have several children who are non-binary, very queer, and it’s a very beautiful community, so I love to see it here as well.” The non-binary queer children’s community, that is.  

Another noted that children “get the chance to be open to whatever their body or their mind is telling themselves—they get to learn that at such a young age, and I love that for them.” A girl with face-paint agreed, saying that only homophobic people disagree with exposing children to all of this and that bringing kids along “helps normalize Pride.” A number of men told the reporter that attending Pride was important for children’s awareness.

So that is what dignity is to the Democrats—exposing children to nude adults, sexual dances, drag queens, and the public acting out of weird sexual fetishes ranging from bondage gear to identifying as animals. That is what they believe children should be exposed to—because “love is love.” Only decades ago, Democrats—including Joe Biden himself—would have furiously called you a liar if you accused him of supporting such things. But here we are. Their agenda is out and proud, and we can all see them for who they are.
