Christian Soccer Player Refuses To Wear Gay Pride Jersey, Withdraws From National Team


Christian soccer player Jaelene Hinkle has withdrawn herself from the U.S. soccer team after it was announced that the squad would be wearing rainbow colored ‘gay pride’ jerseys in their upcoming game. She cited “personal reasons” for her refusal to play.

The star proudly declared Colossians 3:23 on her Twitter which says: “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.” “If you live for people’s acceptance, you’ll die from their rejection,” the tagline also notes on her profile.

Hinkle has been called into national team camp twice over the past two years. In 2017, she declined the invite for “personal reasons.” She later revealed what many suspected at the time: Hinkle, a devout Christian, “felt so convicted in my spirit that it wasn’t my job to wear” the national team’s rainbow-numbered jerseys celebrating Pride Month.

“I’m essentially giving up the one dream little girls dream about their entire life, and I’m saying no to [it],” she told The 700 Club in June 2018. “It was very disappointing.” The 700 Club interview noted that teammates supported her decision.

Hinkle has not received another call-up to the national team since she decided against playing for Team USA last June.

Hinkle, who made eight appearances for the national team from 2015 through 2017, acknowledged that she may never get another opportunity: “I knew in my spirit I was doing the right thing. I knew that I was being obedient. If I never get a national team call-up again, that just is part of [God’s] plan.”

Hinkle also notably converted a gay pride logo into a celebration of the cross on Instagram the same day the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage in 2015 while sharing her opinion on the decision.

“Jesus didn’t come to save those who already believed in Him. He came so that the lost, rejected, and abandoned men and women would find Him and believe. I believe with every fiber in my body that what was written 2,000 years ago in the Bible is undoubtedly true.

It’s not a fictional book. It’s not a pick and choose what you want to believe. You either believe it, or you don’t. This world may change, but Christ and His Word NEVER will,” she declared.

“My heart is that as Christians we don’t begin to throw a tantrum over what has been brought into law today, but we become that much more loving. That through our love, the lost, rejected, and abandoned find Christ.”

Then, she explained the true Biblical meaning of the rainbow symbol. “The rainbow was a covenant made between God and all his creation that never again would the world be flooded as it was when He destroyed the world during Noah’s time.”

“It’s a constant reminder that no matter how corrupt this world becomes, He will never leave us or forsake us. Thank you Lord for your amazing grace, even during times of trial and confusion,” she said.

“Love won over 2,000 years ago when the greatest sacrifice of all time was made for ALL mankind.”

Muslims Turning To Christ In Great Numbers Through Dreams And Visions


    • The Homosexuals touted the message: “all we want is equality” well I for one knew they wouldn’t stop at that, because they alreadyhad equality, as long as they didn’t try boasting about it in the work place causing disruptions, but since they got laws passed making them a special class, the anti-Christ spirit that guides them is now operating freely to target Christians, why wouldn’t they target Muslims, who are commanded to kill them by binding them and dropping them on their heads from the highest point in their community, which they do in Islamic countries, the reason is Christians are a danger to their spiritual leader who hates the Messiah Islam is Not.

      • Amen, I wonder if Nike will give her millions for standing up for her convictions or do you have to be a black,
        American hating football player.

        • That is funny but sadly very true! This corrupt world is not kind to the everyday Christian or even Jewish people. Those who follow God the right way are shunned and being persecuted for not changing.

        • Not hating of America, just policy and procedures that down right dehumanize people that aren’t white my brother, if you look for understanding, you will find it, but if you look to only cement an assumption there’s plenty for that too, it’s more of where your heart is!! Love ya brother

  1. God gave Ten commandments, not Ten,suggestions. He’s not afraid of any man no matter their stature. No one can dictate to Him how he/she ought to be saved. The answer to salvation has and always is jesus. Stand firm under every trial.

    • Brave young woman. It is such an honor to read about a young woman who stands by her convictions and loves God more than Fame or Earthly dream

    • Amen, it is the Ten commandments, not ten suggestions. What a wonderful blueprint to follow, those Ten Commandments!!!

    • “Jesus didn’t come to save those who already believed in Him. He came so that the lost, rejected, and abandoned men and women would find Him and believe…It’s not a pick and choose what you want to believe. You either believe it, or you don’t. This world may change, but Christ and His Word NEVER will,” – these words from Ms. Hinkle are a bit confusing.

      If she “knew in (her)my spirit (she)I was doing the right thing.” and she “knew that (she)I was being obedient.” then why does she bare false witness against a portion of our society that has been denied the same marital & parental rights as the majority of our country because they were born gay?

      It’s sad that she believes that God & His Son would want his children to deny HIS gay children their
      civil liberties. As she said, she “felt so convicted in my spirit that it wasn’t my job to wear” the national team’s rainbow-numbered jerseys celebrating Pride Month. But unfortunately, it truly was her job to wear whatever uniform the team deems appropriate. Just look the NFL fining its superstars for wearing the wrong socks.

      What’s truly sad is how Ms. Hinkle has the audacity to blame her love for God & Jesus, “If (she)I never get(s) a national team call-up again, that just is part of [God’s] plan.” No, it has to do with her refusal to wear the team mandated uniform.

      Moreover, the Lord’s Ten Commandments, state nothing regarding homosexuality – but the Lord did command that WE do not bare false witness against our neighbors.
      Ms. Hinkle states “Love won over 2,000 years ago when the greatest sacrifice of all time was made for ALL mankind.” … and yet she “notably converted a gay pride logo into a celebration of the cross on Instagram the same day the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage in 2015 while sharing her opinion on the decision.” is nowhere near behaving in “Christ-like” manner.

      • It’s unnatural to be gay.. That’s her point, it’s not what God intended for humans, that’s why it takes a male (natural) and a female (natural) to reproduce and create new life. They gay community has become greedy with their quest for “equality” and are completely overstepping their bounds now. They have equal rights, they mess it up for themselves when they insist on marching around and making a spectacle of themselves, then they cry about it. They DO NOT need to walk in to every work place and social gathering and announce that they are gay. They are truly mentally ill, and part of their illness is a need for constant attention, like extra special attention, when what they need is to talk to a therapist and figure out their internal issues. And yes, people pretend to be gay for attention all the time. Honestly, you don’t go have children with the opposite sex and when that relationship doesn’t work you suddenly become gay… That’s called a mental break, and should be checked not people feeding their bullshit. The more we give them the more they want to take. It’s silliness because people got nothing to do but create drama for attention. This girl sees the big picture. It’s too bad you can’t.

      • She isn’t denying anyone anything. She knows what the Bible says about such things and is being obedient. There can be no such thing as same sex marriage because marriage can only be between a man and a woman. However, her refusal to wear a gay pride uniform will not prevent two gay people from doing anything they want to do.


      • NO one is born gay, and neither Yahweh nor Yeshua makes anyone gay. You are born MALE or FEMALE, after that everything is based on the choices you make… knowingly or unknowingly. Yes, Yeshua/Jesus accepts, forgives, and cleans us up when we turn to Him and REJECTS our wicked ways.

        Homosexuality is Satan’s way of 1) corrupting mankind, and 2) trying to deny Yahweh His desire:
        “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; MALE and FEMALE created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply… Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be ONE flesh… And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore ONE? That he might seek a godly seed.”

        Now read Romans 1:21-28… if your pastor tells you otherwise, he will one day answer Yeshua for misleading you. The 10 commandments is not the only teaching or command of Yahweh/Yeshua.

        If you have come to Yeshua, turn away from the twisted lifestyle. Christianity does not hate you nor throw you from the highest building, it is interested in saving souls, just like Yeshua. Yeshua did not condemn the woman “caught” in adultery, He just told her “Go, and sin no more”, He is saying the same to all of us even today. Today, if you hear His voice harden not your hearts.

        Yes, Yahweh is love but He is also pure and holy, among other great and wonderful things.

      • Sorry that you are having a problem with Ms J. Hinkle stand, But the Word of God declares in Romans 1: 18 – 32 that Homosexuality is Wrong!! And as a Christian we Must Not support anything to do with “SIN” , I don’t care what the Supreme Court says, God was before America, God was before the Supreme Court and every Politician that is in the world, God made them, knows them, Have their blue print, Knows when they will breathe their last breathe, No one was born gay, that’s a Lie from the pit of Hell. (Genesis 1:26 ” But God created man in His Own image, In the Image of God He created he them, male and female created He them). Note no mention of God creating any gays or lesbians!! A lie from the pit of Hades..

        We were created in the Image of God, created to serve Him and Him only, But Man is Rebellious, Wicked, Cruel, Disobedient and all the worst Adjectives that is known, But Praise be to God for His unspeakable gift, The Gift of Salvation is what we treasure and Ms J. Hinkle has proven that she is a Child of God, And God will take care of her, As He did for Abraham, Jacob and Issac and all the great men and women of the Bible, so will He do for Her. (Ms. J Hinkle)

        Men loves darkness rather that light. St. John 3:19 and we are here to expose darkness and that is why I love Ms J. Hinkle for her stand against wearing this gay pride jersey, In Christendom there is nothing in gay pride that we should be happy about. Genesis 1 -3 state that God created Adam and Eve , Not Eve and Evette and not Adam and Steve!! And I love her response to the rainbow, Satan you are a liar!! everything that God has created to teach His people about Him, Satan the deceiver, Accuser of every Christian, The father of ALL lies and deceptions, Satan tries to oppose God and imitate all what God has use for righteousness for unrighteousness.

        And that is what Satan has done with the powerful symbol of the rainbow for us as Christians, The rainbow was sent by God to remind us that He (God) will not destroy the world with water again but with fire, real fire, Lord, Jesus ,My Savior and King, I thank you for sending the rainbow to remind us as Christian to remain Faithful, Committed, Vigilant, Alert and Attentive to your Words which gives us light, May you continue to bless Ms J. Hinkle and all the Christians around the world who is taking a stand against the darkness, evil and wicked plans of Satan, We rebuke every plans of Satan and we exalt God, We extol men and we extinguish, bind, crush every schemes, plans and plots of the enemy in Jesus name we pray. Thank you for fighting for us God, and allowing us to know that the battle belongs to you (God). In the most Powerful, Anointed and every Victorious name there is Jesus .Amen.

        • Humans are not born gay but they were given a free will to choose good or evil gay people have chosen a hedonist evil lifestyle, Who are listening to satan the master of deception he is deceiving their mind Him

      • No human being is born a gay or else he or she wouldn’t have been born in the first place . You choose to become gay. Just as you choose to to obey God’s word or to disobey it.

      • You have the misconception that God created you. Your mom and dad created you and God gave you the breath of life to live. God created Adam, Eve and Jesus and that’s it.

      • Exactly, there is nothing in the 10 commandments about any of it. And to imply we can obey the 10 commandments even if it did only goes to show that many do not understand what the purpose of The Law was. It wasn’t because a single person in the world could keep, but because we would BREAK it. (If we say we have no sin, the truth is not in us) why keep pointing out this ‘ supposed one sin’. when all people do is reproduce sinners from birth on a daily basis?

        • You do realize the ten commandments are not just ten right and god commands much more through out the bible ! Im starting to think you havent read the books to begin with. Just because we all sin doesnt mean you should stop trying to live up to gods word including not conforming to this world and homosexuality seems to be fore front these day’s so comes up as a conviction more and more !

        • Because the homosexual community and its supporters are pushing for the normalization of a destructive lifestyle while demonizing and attacking anyone who doesn’t agree with them. No one is born homosexual. God wants you to choose to be his child through obedient faith. Your generalization and misinformed comments on scripture show you really haven’t considered what God, through his Word, has told us. I encourage you to open your mind and study for the sake of knowledge.

    • She is an inspiration to all people not just Christians I’m Jewish and I’m proud and inspired by this woman who is standing up for what she believes contrary to being a politically correct jack ass which seems to be more important then life. great start from a great woman!!

  2. If I were to discribe this young womans stand and support of the doctrine of our God, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit; “I would run out of superlatives”.

    • I have to question why, if we have so many people who are willing to judge the gay people, do we even need a God to be our Supreme Judge? By being so verbal about your opinions, it seems you have saved Him a lot of trouble. And, the next time we read of a young Matt Sheppard who was brutally murdered as a gay boy, and many more who are so verbally persecuted, will you accept the fact that you and others who are making such unkind comments are nothing less than cheerleaders for these who go one step father and do physical violence? I know if I were as judgmental over something that none of us can fully understand I would have to feel guilty whenever violence and hate destroy another person, gay or straight.

      • You’re judging those who judge, you are at least as judgmental as those you criticize. Christians are commanded to judge righteously (not self righteously). We are all sinners and require a contrite heart about our sin. Gays deny that same sex proclivities are sin and in that the sin of homosexuality is ruinous ultimately for their soul. God designed us and gave us his commands, but you care more about how sinners feel. Go deeper than your feelings, read your Bible and have someone help you with your bias. Your hubris condemns you not Christians.

        • Fine, then what is Righteous Judgment? Same sex proclivities are no more sin that other sex ones are, by the way, as they are ALL works of the flesh.

          • Christians are obligated to rebuke every sinful act in love, a christian who keeps quite just because he wants to be accepted by people is a passive christian. It is high right time we stop seeing those who are telling us the truth as enemies. “…and you shall know the truth and the truth shall save you free”

      • Matthew Shepherd? I believe they say “the truth will set you free.” It was a drug deal that went wrong. But I bet you also didn’t hear one of those killers was his ex-lover. So no…it wasn’t Christians seeking vengeance.

      • This young Lady isn’t judging anyone. She is following the direction of our God. Our God has condemned behavior in support of sin, as written in 2 Corinthians 6:14. “Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?” (NIV)

      • The Bible calls homosexuality an abomination. That will never change, no matter who or how many deny it. Sin is a choice.

        • No man’s mistranslation of what Paul meant when he made up a new word is the problem, and we know what is in the OLD testament was only a shadow and sign of the Actuality being portrayed…next time you eat shrimp, you’re a crab either or you’re going to hell in a hand basket.

          • The ceremonial laws were not carried into the new covenant, but moral laws were. You can read about some of this in Colossians 2:16-17 .

            It is worth noting that all the 10 commandments are repeated, or at least strongly implied in the N.T., except for the command to obey the sabbath. If anything changed, it was the emphasis that even committing the moral sins in your heart were enough to be condemned by God.

            In the N.T. sex between two people of the same sex is clearly condemned as sinful. Some want to point out that Jesus never condemned homosexuality. Well, we don’t have record of him condemning rape during his early ministry either. But, it is grossly correct to think he somehow approved of either. Jesus is the creator, and and the fellow designer of sex itself. He is the Living Word, and ultimate author of both O.T. and N.T.

            Jesus did speak about gender and marriage. He spoke of some who were eunuchs by birth, and those made eunuchs by men, but didn’t take that opportunity to approve of transsexualism. He spoke of marriage being between a man and and a woman, but omitted the idea of same-sex marriage in that same discussion. In fact, no where in Scripture is anything said in approval of homosexuality or transsexualism. It only speaks of them as sin.

  3. A temporary loss, but an Eternal reward. You will hear a “WELL DONE!”, for this sacrifice, which most people would consider ridiculous. Thanks for taking a stand for the TRUTH.

  4. Jesus said…If you confess Me before men, I will profess you before my Father in Heaven. Great to see such a young Christian Athlete with such strong convictions based on the Word of God…which does not change.

  5. Good for her and praise God! Of course, the player getting all the attention in the fake news media is the one kneeling or ignoring the national anthem. A sad state, yet evidence of prophecy being fulfilled of “the end of the age.”

  6. And dear sister, if you hold stead fast in your faith and God’s word…even if you never step foot on a soccer field again…The truth is soccer games, wins, losses, trophies will come and go, but God’s word and his promises to us will always be…Andhe will keep you and you will never go in Need.
    Love In Christ.

  7. You are a very rich person! Your faith is way more valuable than a World Cup! God bless you for standing up for your beliefs. I truly admire your beliefs! May God always guide you and hold you safely in the palm of his hand.

  8. It’s the National team, why don’t they wear jersey’s to represent the Nation, not a select sect. Praise to this young woman for standing up for what she believes. Shame to the team managers, sponsor s and coaches for allowing a small sqeekee wheel to dictate.

    • Why are the sports clubs making the players get involved in the gay pride anyway. They are there to play sport, and should not be Used like this There should be a law against it !

  9. Praise God for your faithfulness. Proverbs 3:3-4 King James Version (KJV)
    3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

    4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

  10. God bless you for taking a stand against unrighteousness
    God will honor an take care of you. It is true an as Christian’s who love the Lord we have no obligation to what man wants us to do. It is refreshing to see this. God bless an keep you. I hate to say it but I believe the LGBTQ have been given over to a reprobate mind especially when it is being taught to young children in public schools. May young girls follow you an your conviction for God rather than what any organization trys to teach them

    • Yeah no doubt they are Reprobate.
      And they are pedophiles.

      Forcing young women (or men) to wear patches identifying with sexual abomination is blatant Sodomite propaganda

  11. It is a loss of a dedicated young athlete to the soccer world, but a gain to mankind in God’s! Thank you for showing your love!

  12. Thank you for not bowing a knee to BA’AL’s LGBTp

    Romans 1 KJV (unmolested version)
    21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

  13. I don’t get why the team does not support your right NOT to wear that uniform. I am proud of your bravery and I am sure God is also. <3

  14. Praise you young Lady – I stand behind you in your decision. God is blessing you and your life !! – GOOD FOR YOU !!!

  15. I thank GOD for the stand you took for GOD ALMIGHTY! You gave up your dream but you have GREATER TREASURES in HEAVEN waiting on you! GOD WILL provide every need you have in life. Always keep your faith in GOD. I thank GOD for you and those who take a stand for GOD each day! May GOD Keep and Bless You Daily!

  16. You are very courageous women and I admire you. I wish I knew you personally because I would give you a hug and pray with you. I work in the social work field and many some of my clients are LGBT. I see a lot. My heart is full of love, but I pray daily for individuals. I struggle with our political system daily and pray anxiety away because I know our nation is falling slowly and I worry for my children who will grow up with being told “this is okay” when it is against our family values, our beliefs and our morals. There is not many other young women out there who feels or understands the way I do. It is hard to find and many Christians I meet are being deceived that “you were born this way”.

    • You say “when it is against our family values, our beliefs and our morals.” Then teach that in your family. Go to the church that supports those views. Don’t expect the rest of society to conform to your views and rules because your feelings might get hurt. The best thing you can do for your children is to “teach them the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.” Give them love and strength of conviction so they can face the issues of the world they will live in and not be a whining bible justice warrior that expects never to be faced with something they don’t believe in.

      • If you teach them the way they should go, they will become disciples of Christ. We are taught that we will face adversity as Christians. It is written in the Bible. We are taught to live in the Word and not in the World. In other words, do what God says is right and not what society says is OK. The Bible says that marriage is between a man and woman (Jesus repeats this in Matthew). Doesn’t matter what the Supreme Court says. The Bible also says that fornication is a sin (fornication being sex between two unmarried persons). Since two same sex persons cannot be married according to God’s Word, then if they engage in sexual acts, they are committing sin just as a man and women having sex before marriage is a sin. You can’t change this. The government can’t change this and society can’t change this. Do we “hate” gays? Not at all and I would encourage them to attend church and listen to the Word and how to get the gift of Grace. Jesus welcomes everyone and forgives you of your sins. You just go and do your best to sin no more. We ALL fail at this but we seem to do less sin as we get deeper into our faith.

      • ik: What God says is final, God is not afraid of any body, He (God) does what He pleases, He gives life , he takes us to places that we at times don’t like, But guess what He created us and he knows everything about us.

        God has given us His laws and if we don’t obey, We will pay, He loves the lesbians and the gays. and want them to read His words, Love Him and obey. A little poem for all. God loves us all. Shalom.

      • Is that the same “Science” that said the polar ice caps would be melted by now and half the country would be under water??

  17. I admire the courage and conviction that you have in our Lord, Ms Hinkle. May God continue to Bless you as you are a role model for every lost human being.

  18. Thank TMH for giving this youg lady a strong conviction. Now if we can get all of the christians to keep the shabat.

  19. What a wonderful choice not all can be forced to believe in advertising
    when we all know its a thing of today and the Gay advertising may be used to describing of (Happy & Gay ) again. Why
    is it today everybody seems to want to condition people to accepting :BACKSIDE OPERATORS: is something to be proud of

  20. mandatory forcing players to promote ANY special message is a violation of their free speech. PERIOD. So NFL players aren’t allowed their free speech to KNEEL, bot a sports team can FORCE their players to promote an ideal?

  21. What a wonderful example to other young athletes to stand up for their beliefs. God will bless you for your testimony.

  22. Thanks dear for standing for Jesus.
    Bible said in 1John 2:17 that the world passeth away, hence you dont have to conform to the world.

  23. Why do we have to bring this into sports? Just play the we don’t care who you’re sleeping with. When is straight rights month 🤔?

  24. My God continue to bless you, dear one, you are an inspiration to all of us who believe in the words of God. Your spirit and dedication to Our God, are true and uplifting , I thank you for your steadfast belief, and determination to not allow the so called social acceptance sway your faith or change your direction. Thank you

  25. Jaelene you’re one of the people that “Heaven” is proud of. The love for God overcomes everything. The decision you take is a consequence of your obedience in God; God is surely working on a purpose through this decision. We shall subsequently see the amazing results of this. Revival…

  26. Completely respect this decision, the fact is the LGBT has their equality. We do not need it pushed DOWN unto our kids and the rest of the public. I was not OK with the REMOVAL of the P.O.W/ M.I.A flag at a few government institutes for a GAY PRIDE FLAG. Being a Veteran that is entirely to much. So good for you and a great example. Amen

  27. Such a brave girl may the good Lord be with you. Talk about trying to shove thier lifestyle down others throat we dont care who your sleeping with, somewhat does that have to do with sports.

  28. I congratulate this young woman in taking a stand for what she believes in, it doesn’t make sense calling yourself a follower of Christ if you’re not going to be obedient, and too many of us make excuses to compromise our faith…not this young lady!

    You cannot go wrong standing for what’s right…gay “pride” has nothing to do with football, but they are trying to bring it into the game I love so dearly. It’s not pride in God’s eyes, it’s an abomination (Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13).

  29. I support her decision not to play if that’s how she felt. I can’t believe she didn’t know that was coming though.

    But, regardless, her statement of faith is riddled with inconsistencies, like most faith statements are.
    Anyone who says you have to believe the whole bible and you can’t pick and choose is already a hypocrite. As starters, she’s a woman in shorts. ahemmm…..

    Among many discrepancies, she states that “the rainbow is a symbol of god’s love for everyone”, and earlier she stated that everyone should respond to gay marriage legalization with “more love”. I guess, like football, she means ‘everyone’ whom she approves, not people she doesn’t approve of, like say gay people. They’re not part of “everyone”.

    If she REALLY wanted to show her exceptional Christian love, she could have started with that jersey. She could have used wearing it to make a public statement that would have gotten the same press coverage in the same places, that said “I don’t believe the gay lifestyle is approved of in the bible. BUT, I do believe God loves EVERYONE, including gay people. And I am wearing this to say I love the people even if I can’t approve of their life style.”

    She missed her “historic moment” to show God’s love.

    • IK: Should she have played but on the day when the game began, the team realised too late that she had coloured the rainbow colours with a black texta felt pen. Would that have been a satisfactory alternative for you? She would have started but been removed publicly from the game as soon as the game began. The result would have been the same but she’d have been terminated for a different reason, disapproved of the rainbow colours but no stand for her religious faith. Would that have been more acceptable for you?

  30. Amen I am so proud of her for standing on the word of God and not giving into the pressure to support sin as Christians we are called to walk just as jesus he always loved the sinner but never loved the sin and as Christian’s we can come together and stand against homosexuality and not support it in any way but also still love the sinner and pray for them and not be wrong for doing it .

  31. I admire you so much for standing up for your Christian beliefs and convictions. I truly believe God will bless you for your stand. I think not standing up for so many, many years is what has gotten our country into this mess. We use to be a God fearing country….now look at us. It takes a lot of strength to stand for Him and not be a Peter. Thank you so much for your great example.

  32. The earth is the Lord’s, he owns it all. He will do exceeding, abundantly, above you ever can imagine. Come on Nike, Reebok, all you who profiting off the labor and sweat of our young people, sweat shops minimum wages, money big business holding back by fraud. Give it up now you criminals, and remember this, Christians are going to get it all very soon. “You go girl”.

  33. i was quit encouraged by this young lady how her journey has changed how she is born again and has the spirit of the lord in fire in her soul and i m thankful for who she is and she will be such a good role model to other christian girls to know that man can try to prode you to do things but walk in obedience to the lord and you will live in a upright nature a holy way of living and the lord will be pleased with . i pray many blessings over this young ladys faith and health and future and her family too . god is good .

  34. Finally, someone with so guts!! I admire anyone who stands by their convictions and is not afraid to walk their path alone!! Without getting into her religious views, I would not have worn the jersey either. I don’t see the “Pride” flags or apparel with any value. It does not celebrate anything meritorious or outstanding. It does celebrate one’s sexuality and preferences, which is NOT noteworthy to most people. It is sad that a person like this has to sacrifice their dreams for the sake of those who demand their “Pride” in nothing special be displayed…what a waste!!

  35. God did not make people that way. He gave them over.Well here are Gods words about it.Romans Chapter 1
    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    God is not gay. I would say vile and error pretty much sums it up.

  36. This young lady is spot on. And a true inspiration to all common sensed people, not just Christians. God or nature did not intend this. Only a natural male and natural female can reproduce (without help from science) and it’s that way because that is how it was intended to be. The LGBTQ needs to back up, they have rights, equal to others. They can get jobs, have a bank account, drive a car etc etc… But they don’t need to parade around like they are special announcing that they are gay to everyone, that’s on them. Yes normal people are generally bothered by the LGBTQ community because it IS NOT NATURAL!! people need to stop bowing down to these people. They are corrupting our children and brainwashing them telling them that being gay is awesome and flying flags at veterans memorial and so on… It’s frankly pathetic.. Go do what you should be doing… Get up, get ready for your day and take your ass to work, go home, clean your home and take care of your shit, like everyone else, you won’t have time to fixate on silliness. It’s some kind of strange fad that needs to stop already. If you don’t want negative attention then stop drawing attention by making an absolute spectacle of yourself every time you go out.
    This girl is a true leader, not worrying about what people say, but doing what’s right and refusing to play in to this psycho political correctness bologna.. Kudos to her

  37. Did they tell her “Wear the jersey or you’re not on the team”? No.
    Did she talk to them and say “I have these personal beliefs. How can we accommodate them”? No.
    That smells like grandstanding.

  38. This is just the tip of the iceberg there is a rising tide of unbelief, that Jesus it’s the way the truth and the life. There is a lure of secular liberalism that touches almost every Christian. Thank you we’re standing for our Lord!

  39. I bet the US Womans National Team never won a game after that without her!

    Alexa, play SWING LOW, SWET CHARIOT on music.

    • The USWNT won lots of games without her. In fact they won their fourth World Cup, proving again they are the best women’s soccer team in the world. And there are about 6 lesbian players on the team. No one missed the judgmental little grand-stander.
      Why is it that so-called Christians tout their 10 commandments, but protest none of those who break them? Is it that jealousy, fornication, and adultery are “acceptable” sins? When you start throwing fits about those things and thieves and murderers you will have some credibility. Meanwhile why not get some facts, instead of making claims about things you clearly don’t understand?

  40. I am a believer of Jesus. When God says NO, it means NO. When God says YES, it means YES. It does not matter if the laws have changed. God’s word never changes. I love you Lord, Amen, xoxo

  41. The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team showing support of the LGBTwhatever community is not representative of all U.S. citizens. They want to go beyond equal rights and force others to support this. I will be a martyr one day because I will never think it’s not a sin.

  42. Let all LBGTQs here and know that God is and always remain who He just lurking around them.1cor 6:9 states non of them will inherit the kingdom of God.

  43. Thank you, Jaelene McKenzie Hinkle!!!You have withstood the onslaught of the gay and lesbians(LBGTQs) community, to take a worthy stand of true conviction against this group of people who believe that everyone must dance and sing to their music. But you have also demonstrated to them and all their gay pundits who are willing to sacrifice their morale integrity, to support them at any cost, that there are Christians and others who have not fallen to that kind of life style. The God of heaven and earth has no tolerance for such behaviour. Therefore, those so-called Christians who wholeheartedly support them and at times criticize other Christians who condemn such dastard, ugly human behaviour, will face God’s wrath similar to those who practice such terrible immoral acts. God condemns it in all the societies of yesteryear and He condemns it today, tomorrow and forever.
    Jaelene, you are not alone! First, you have your heavenly Father who watches over you at at all times, in addition to millions of people globally who are supporting you for the stand you have taken. There is a greater good awaiting you, just keep on holding on, to your faith in Jesus Christ! The sacrifice you make now will bring you freedom and eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Peace and blessings to you from the Most High God of heaven and earth!

  44. Jaelene Hinkle should get a Similar Trophy for Winning the Soccer Game… She was a Member and She decided to Get Out when Morality went out the door. If nothing else… Her Trophy should read “SMARTEST TEAM MEMBER OF THE USA SOCCER TEAM – 2019”

  45. People keep referring that there are only 10 commandments and because non of these 10 Commandments speak about homosexuality then it must be OK. In fact there are hundreds of commandments throughout the entire Bible In my research on the Internet it states that there are 613 in the old testament and there about 800 in the New Testament within these commandments or laws it definitely addresses homosexuality and whether it is right or wrong.

  46. Well done. You did us proud standing up for your convictions.
    We need more like you who are willing to surrender their dream like Abraham when its appropriate. God will reward you.
    You have me hope

  47. Homosexuality is wrong period!!!! Aint no two ways about it. The more we accept this B.S as mankind the more the devil gets closer. To be honest i personally hate gay people. I hate them for been too weak and accepting the devils way. Someone will say “who are u to judge” well if i see something wrong coming my way, ill judge right away and choose whats best for me and people around me. Sin comes in different ways but Life is about WHAT IS WRONG AND WHAT IS RIGHT, its up to one to choose and live up to the consequences. I’m human so i obviously sin. sometimes knowingly and unknowingly but I believe in GOD and may he continue to bless me with courage and wisdom.

  48. This is what God is expecting from all His children, to stand for their believe (Faith in Christ) in the day of persecution like this. I am so proud of you Sister and I know Heaven also is happy for your stand. May God continue to uphold you and give you the right word in the face of challenges on your way to heaven in Jesus name.

  49. Jaelene Hinkle, God bless you sister. It is better to be ridiculed in the eyes of the world for standing up for the Word of God than basking in the adoration of thousands of supporters for supporting sinfulness.
    Jesus too sacrificed everything because he believed obedience to the Word was the only thing worth doing. God Bless you and may you abound more and more in the knowledge of GOD…

  50. With the Triune God on your side, you’ve got the Divine Majority withe you. Its an unbeatable team. Keep standing tall for Christ, young lady. Selah!
