Watching the Dodgers' Pride Night fiasco unfold, I’m reminded of the “Breaking Bad” episode "Half Measures."
We love half measures. Humans do. Christians do. If we need to drop 30 pounds, we’ll lose 15 and call it success. We’ll shack up and share expenses rather than get married. Rather than buy the car we can afford, we pile up credit debt and expose ourselves to usury.
At the conclusion of season 3 of "Breaking Bad," the protagonist, Walter White, wrestles with the unending problems caused by his drug-dealing partner, Jesse Pinkman, a recovering drug addict. A third partner, Mike the Cleaner, advises White to avoid taking another “half measure” in solving their Pinkman problem. Mike, a former cop, tells a story about a serial wife-beater who eventually turned into a murderer. Mike regrets the half measures he took in trying to solve the problem.
Mike wants permission to kill Pinkman.
Walter White chooses a different path. It isn’t a half measure. He chooses a bigger problem. In order to save Pinkman, White declares war on Gus Fring, New Mexico’s drug kingpin.
Clayton Kershaw, Blake Treinen, Trevor Williams, Anthony Bass, and all the other baseball players bothered by the Dodgers’ embrace of the Perpetual Sisters of Indulgence during Pride Month are in the process of learning there’s a bigger problem than L.A.’s most beloved sports franchise.
It’s a realization that all Christians must accept. The global economic agenda promoted by the World Economic Forum is the enemy of all Christ-centered religious faith. The Dodgers prioritize the same diversity, equity, and inclusion values as Target, Bud Light, North Face, and Chick-fil-A. The owners of the Dodgers aspire to receive a high rating on their “Corporate Equality Index,” the business credit score that helps determine how much funding they’ll receive from the central banking system. The CEI is designed to enforce LGBTQIA+ inclusion in the workplace. Corporations are financially incentivized to celebrate and promote the Alphabet Mafia agenda.
Globalist bankers have rigged the system to favor the LGBTQ.
Kershaw and Treinen, pitchers for the Dodgers, want their team to cancel the Pride Night invitation extended to the demonic Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a group of gay drag queens who ridicule Catholic nuns and mock Jesus with sex acts.
“I don’t agree with making fun of other people’s religions,” Kershaw complained to reporters. “It has nothing to do with anything other than that. I just don’t think that, no matter what religion you are, you should make fun of somebody else’s religion. So, that’s something that I definitely don’t agree with.”
Treinen issued a statement, which read in part:
“I understand that playing baseball is a privilege, and not a right. My convictions in Jesus Christ will always come first. Since I have been with the Dodgers they have been at the forefront of supporting a wide variety of groups. However, inviting the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to perform disenfranchises a large community and promotes hate of Christians and people of faith. This single event alienates the fans and support of the Dodgers, Major League Baseball, and professional sports.”
Bass, a pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays, shared an Instagram video of a young man quoting the Bible to argue that Christians should boycott Target and Bud Light over their promotion of transgenderism. The Blue Jays quickly made Bass apologize.
Social media influencer Robby Starbuck, a former Hollywood producer and director with deep connections to major league players, shared over Twitter that baseball players have asked the MLBPA to intervene. Many players are reportedly concerned about the league using them to promote social and political issues.
It’s all half measures.
The Dodgers and the Blue Jays aren’t the problem. Neither is Bud Light or Target. It’s the system.
This is why each day it gets more difficult for me to disavow Donald Trump. His America First slogan and agenda awakened me to the dangers of globalism.
I would prefer that Trump not publicly criticize Kayleigh McEnany, his former press secretary. But I’m not going to lose sleep over a tweet on Truth Social.
We have bigger problems than Trump’s fragile ego and lack of social media discipline. Central bankers have rigged the system to destroy America’s founding principles and turn this country secular.
As best I can tell, there’s only one 2024 presidential candidate crazy enough to do anything to stop them. That’s not a knock on Ron DeSantis or Robert Kennedy Jr. I like them both.
But are they America First? Did they open our eyes to the real enemy?
Obviously Trump is imperfect on a wide range of issues. But never forget he created the environment that made us question everything we’re being told. He helped us see what a full measure looks like.
Globalism is our enemy. The de-emphasis of American values is destroying our country. The bankers desire a one-world government and a godless culture. They’ve printed and passed out enough money to persuade athletes, celebrities, and fake journalists to sell the virtue of a secular society.
Their scheme is working. Or maybe it’s worked.
Christians can no longer afford half measures. We have to declare war on the globalists. That will likely require Clayton Kershaw and others to walk away from their playing careers. The rest of us might have to abandon our love of sports.
