Ron DeSantis has vetoed $35 million that was set to go to the Tampa Bay Rays for a new spring training facility in the wake of the team’s decision to engage in a ‘Woke Off’ on Twitter.
Five Tampa Bay Rays pitchers have refused to wear the gay pride logo on their uniforms citing religious beliefs. Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs and Ryan Thompson — of course all saying they accept everyone despite their choice to pass on the gesture.
The team wore rainbow-colored sleeve patches this past Saturday where these five opted for their standard unis. Tampa Bay Rays players refused to wear the Gay Pride logo on their uniforms this weekend — saying their religious beliefs wouldn’t allow it, but also saying they accept everyone. https://t.co/3ii3f3JeEj — TMZ (@TMZ) June 5, 2022 Jason Adam was asked to comment on their decision — his response was strong.
“So it’s a hard decision. Because ultimately we all said what we want is them to know that all are welcome and loved here,” he said. “But when we put it on our bodies, I think a lot of guys decided that it’s just a lifestyle that maybe — not that they look down on anybody or think differently — it’s just that maybe we don’t want to encourage it if we believe in Jesus, who’s encouraged us to live a lifestyle that would abstain from that behavior, just like (Jesus) encourages me as a heterosexual male to abstain from sex outside of the confines of marriage.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
