(LifeSiteNews) – The US men’s soccer team made a pro-LGBT political statement ahead of its upcoming appearance at the World Cup in Qatar, where homosexual “marriage” is outlawed and sodomy punishable by jail.
Instead of relying on the traditional red, white, and blue color scheme for its crest, the team unveiled a rainbow-themed logo inside Al Gharrafa SC Stadium, where it will practice and hold media events for the duration of the tournament.
“We’re a group that believes in inclusivity, and we’ll continue to project that going forward.”
— U.S. Men's National Soccer Team (@USMNT) November 14, 2022
The US team — which faces Wales on Monday, November 21 — won’t wear the LGBT patch on its uniforms while competing, however. US coach Gregg Berhalter told reporters this week that “it is important to bring awareness to these issues.” Players have also expressed support for the badge.
According to the UK-based Daily Mail, England’s soccer team is also upset about Qatar’s staunch support for traditional marriage. The outlet is reporting that the team will fly to the World Cup aboard a “Rain Bow” gay pride jet built by Virgin Atlantic, which was founded by liberal billionaire Richard Branson. Germany’s team, meanwhile, is flying to Qatar on a “diversity wins” aircraft.
A large childcare chain in the United States just fired a faithful Christian caretaker for refusing to read LGBT propaganda to children.
As reported on LifeSiteNews, Bright Horizons Children’s Center in California terminated the contract of Nelli Parisenkova for not reading LGBT-themed books to children as young as 1 year-old.
Parisenkova, a devout Christian who worked for the company for four years, requested to not read the books because they violated her deeply held religious beliefs.
Instead of tolerating Nelli’s Christian faith, Bright Horizons demanded she 'celebrate diversity' or leave. After refusing to comply with this unjust ultimatum, Parisenkova’s boss expelled her from the building, which forced her to walk 20 minutes in 96-degree heat to the bus stop where she had to wait another 45 minutes.
Parisenkova is now suing Bright Horizons Children’s Center for violating her religious freedom, and she needs your help to raise public awareness about this assault on her human rights.
Sign this petition today to tell Nelli Parisenkova that you stand with her and her Christian faith against the LGBT agenda being pushed by Bright Horizon’s Children’s Center.
Bright Horizons thinks it can bully devout Christians like Nelli into submitting to their leftist ideology. Do not let them get away with it! We all must take a stand to ensure these attacks on our shared Christian faith come to an end. Here are the plain and simple facts:
- No child should be brainwashed to believe that marriage is between two men or two women.
- No child should be told that boys can become girls, or that girls can become boys.
- No child should be indoctrinated with the erroneous belief there are more than two genders, or that people can choose their gender identity.
This is not education. This is propaganda.
Nelli Parisenkova was RIGHT to protect children from LGBT indoctrination and she was RIGHT to invoke her Christian faith in doing so.
SIGN THIS PETITION NOW to tell her she is not alone in this fight!
The controversy surrounding Qatar — the first Middle Eastern nation to host the competition — began when World Cup Ambassador Khalid Salman told a German television network last week that same-sex behavior causes “damage in the mind.” He also called on visitors to his country to refrain from public displays of homosexuality. Germany’s interior minister immediately denounced Salman’s remarks, as has a host of other woke sports commentators.
Professional soccer in America is no stranger to the LGBT agenda. Star women’s team player Megan Rapinoe made headlines with her outspoken support for leftist causes several years ago. Rapinoe, who is a lesbian, was named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year in 2019.
Jaelene Daniels, on the other hand, is a professional soccer player who stands for traditional marriage. A defender for the North Carolina Courage, she chose to sit out a game instead of wearing a rainbow “Pride” jersey this summer. She turned down an offer to play for the national team due to the expectation that she would need to wear a pro-LGBT jersey.
The US men’s team has been placed in group “B” for the World Cup, and will face Wales, England, and Iran, respectively, over the next two weeks. The tournament begins Sunday, November 20 and lasts until December 18. To date, no US men’s soccer team has ever won the tournament. World rankings currently list Brazil as number one and Argentina as number two.
