MLB Wants Christians Silenced

Major League Baseball is fine with a homosexual player as an ambassador of inclusion, but the owners want Christians silenced.

The Daily Signal reports, “After Speaking Honestly About His Religious Views, Baseball Player Instructed to Only Talk Sports.”

Baseball player Daniel Murphy thinks it’s wrong to practice a gay “lifestyle.”

Now he’s no longer allowed to talk about his religious beliefs.

Why is the nation even discussing what Murphy, a second baseman for the New York Mets, thinks about gays and lesbians?

Well, because after Billy Bean, a gay former Major League Baseball player who now serves as the League’s Ambassador for Inclusion, visited the Mets, a reporter talked to Murphy.

According to the NJ Advance Media report, Murphy “is ready for a gay teammate, “ and “Murphy, a devout Christian, said he would embrace Bean despite a divergence in their beliefs.”

[…]

And that’s the last we’re going to hear from Murphy on the subject.

On Wednesday, an ESPN story headlined “Murphy now to talk baseball only” appeared. The story’s first line was “New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy will no longer address his religious beliefs and will stick to baseball, a team spokesman said Wednesday.”

Where’s the tolerance?

Baseball Player 1: I’m a man who likes to have sex with men. Major League Baseball has made me its “Ambassador” to promote full acceptance of my choice in sexual desires.

New York Mets: Really?!? Oh, please… sit here and tell us more.

Baseball Player 2: being asked to comment on the above: I’m a sinner who has trusted entirely in Jesus Christ to forgive me, and I seek to follow Him in everything, and want everyone to share in God’s promised joy, forever.

New York Mets: What!?! Hey… shut up!! Just shut the &*%* up!! You can only talk about sports from here forward—understood?

Former Baseball Fan: Yeah… yes, I do understand. I fully understand. And since Major League Baseball is apparently cool with this kind of advocacy and censorship, I understand I won’t be spending any money on MLB gear or tickets. Thank you.
