June is Gay Pride Month and the United States women’s soccer team is celebrating by wearing gay pride jerseys in their upcoming matches against Sweden and Norway. But not everyone on the team is willing to play along. One Christian player is refusing, even though it means she won’t get to play.
Jaelene Hinkle has decided to skip the upcoming games for “personal reasons.” But Hinkle is known to be an outspoken Christian who is not shy about voicing her beliefs on the LGBT agenda and same-sex marriage. When the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in 2015, for example, Hinkle took to Instagram to voice her opposition.
“I believe with every fiber in my body that what was written 2,000 years ago in the Bible is undoubtedly true,” she wrote. “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.”
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. 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. It's a constant reminder that no matter how corrupt this world becomes, He will never leave us or forsake us. Thank you Lord for your amazing grace, even during times of trial and confusion. Love won over 2,000 years ago when the greatest sacrifice of all time was made for ALL mankind. 
She also encouraged Christians to reach out to those struggling with same-sex attraction, saying, “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.”
It seems that Hinkle, despite what gay pride activists might say, is antagonistic to gay people, however — head coach Jill Ellis is an open lesbian and this has not prevented Hinkle from playing on the team. And it is worth pointing out that Hinkle isn’t calling for the jerseys to not be worn at all; instead, she’s merely exercising her right to refuse. The only question is, will she be attacked for it?
