(LifeSiteNews) — NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for not doing enough to put an end to China’s genocide against its Uyghur Muslim population.

“Canada represents freedom, democracy and human rights and yet it’s not taking any real action on China. There’s a genocide and the whole world knows it. Simply condemning it is not enough,” Kanter Freedom told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation last week.

“Justin Trudeau, put yourselves in the shoes of these people. If your wife was in a concentration camp, would you really think the status quo is enough? It’s really unacceptable,” the American Muslim player added.

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.

Kanter Freedom informed the CBC that he wrote a letter to Trudeau urging him to impose sanctions on China in light of the genocide, but he feels as though Trudeau never received or read the letter as “the response I got didn’t actually address any of the specific points I raised.”

While saying he believes that Trudeau “cares” about the human rights abuses occurring in China, Kanter Freedom insists that the Trudeau government go beyond a mere “diplomatic boycott” and adopt Bill S-204 put forward by Conservative Senator Leo Housakos.

If put into force, Bill S-204 would ban the import of goods from the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region of China, which Kanter Freedom sees as essential in stopping the inadvertent “financing [of] forced labor of Uyghurs and the human rights abuses of the Chinese Communist Party.”

Kanter Freedom has been on the forefront of the Uyghur issue for quite some time, particularly in his home country of America.

Last December, following activism from Kanter Freedom, the United States passed a bill similar to Canada’s Bill S-204, banning all imports from the Xinjiang region unless the companies and persons involved are able to prove slave labor was not used in the sourcing or manufacturing of the goods.

The United States, under President Donald Trump, also formally affirmed that China is carrying out a genocide against the Uyghurs, something the Trudeau government has refused to do.

As reported by LifeSiteNews, while designating China’s actions against the Uyghur’s a “genocide,”  former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo supplied overwhelming evidence that China is forcing Uyghur women to have abortions, undergo sterilization, and be placed into “reeducation” programs with the hopes of reducing the group’s population within the nation.
