The National League’s St. Louis Cardinals are being attacked by leftist groups and the gay lobby over a guest deemed to be unfit for the team’s upcoming “Christian Day” at Busch Stadium.
Not that the forced diversity fascists are tolerant of any Christians but they have a special degree of hostility towards former Cardinal player Lance Berkman who has been smeared as a homophobic bigot for his outspoken stance on transgender bathroom laws in Houston.
The local LGBTQ group the Pride Center of St. Louis is hopping mad over the decision to invite Berkman but the team isn’t budging.

BizPac Review reports “St. Louis Cardinals hold their ground against LGBTQ ‘Christian Day’ outcry”:
The St. Louis Cardinals resolved to host Lance Berkman as their “Christian Day” speaker, despite outcry from the LGBTQ community.
St. Louis Pride, an LGBTQ organization, protested the Cardinals’ decision to host Berkman and demanded that the Cardinals cancel his appearance at their annual Christian Day, a post-game event where a public figure, usually a former player as in Berkman’s case, speaks about how Christianity has affected their life.
Berkman drew criticism from the LGBTQ community in 2015 and has been lambasted as a homophobe over his opposition to a Houston city ordinance that would allow transgender people access to bathrooms opposite their biological gender.
Berkman expounded on his opposition to the ordinance in an interview, explaining that, in his view, the ordinance tramples public liberty for the whims of a few.
“The issue is, what to do about a 15 or 16-year-old boy who thinks he’s a girl and wants to shower with the girls,” Berkman said. “Maybe he is [transgender], maybe he’s confused. But I wouldn’t want him in the shower with my daughters. We shouldn’t have the rights of 2 percent of the population trump the rights of the other 98 percent.”
It’s easy to see why Berkman’s stance has caused so much outrage. He dared to point out the tyranny of the minority that a tiny and extremely loud demographic is seeking to use the power of the state to enforce their narrow-minded ideology on everyone else.
The battle over transgender restrooms is at the top of the agenda for the cultural jihadists who won’t be happy until every public women’s restroom is a happy hunting ground for sexual predators and a haven for transvestites and gender confused wretches.
In the interest of inclusion, the Cardinals also plan on hosting a Gay Pride night later in the season but that won’t satisfy the agents of intolerance and forced diversity – nothing ever does.
