The woke mob has claimed another victim.
Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Anthony Bass shared a video to his social media of Ryan Miller, a Christian influencer.
Now Bass is paying the price.
In that video, Miller made the case for boycotting Target by quoting Ephesians chapter five: “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful to even talk of the things that they do in secret.”
Miller believes that in order to “take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness,” one must stop giving one's money to corporations like Target, which target children.
Sara Gonzales of "The News & Why It Matters" is not amused.
While Bass simply shared the video, Gonzales can see why he’s in trouble.
“You’re not allowed to do that these days. The Alphabet Mafia rules all. You are to bend the knee to the rainbow at whatever the cost —your religion be damned. The only religion allowed to survive now is the total complete submission to the LGBT agenda,” she said.
Bass apologized for reposting the video, saying that he recognized it was “hurtful to the Pride community,” and that “the ballpark is for everyone.”
“Hmm, the ballpark is for everybody. Weird, because it certainly doesn’t sound like that. What it sounds like is that the ballpark is for anybody who goes along with woke nonsense,” Gonzales commented.
While Bass apologized, the Toronto Blue Jays are taking further steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
According to the Blue Jays, he will be attending diversity and inclusion training.
“Does he need to attend a workshop teaching him how to cater to mental illness and reject his religion to satisfy a tiny percentage of the population?” Gonzales mocked.
“I want to be clear,” she continued, “if you have a platform and you intend to share a message rejecting wokeism or the LGBT religion — do not back down, ever. The damage that is done by these cowards who walk their statements back with their tails tucked between their legs like a little bitch is far greater than if they would have just kept their mouths shut in the first place.”
