The Atlanta Braves embrace Pride Month
For me, baseball has served as a retreat from the perpetual barrage of sin and insanity all around us. It’s been one of the only places on TV or the Internet I can go to escape the never-ending parade of hostile politics, culture wars, and corporate virtue-signaling. Less than twenty-four hours ago, I said to my wife, “Pride Month has seeped into several ball clubs. Thankfully, I haven’t seen the Braves pay homage to this god of our culture.”
But that was last night.
Am I disappointed? I’m not sure that word is strong enough.
Update: The Braves restored their original logo the next morning.
First, I’m not asking the Braves to endorse or promote a cause with which I agree. I’m asking them to abstain altogether. Second, while I believe homosexuality and transgenderism are inconsistent with God’s holy purposes in creation and redemption, to be clear, I also believe all people have inestimable value and dignity before God and deserve honor, respect and protection. Everyone has been created by God and for God.
