In the spirit of whataboutism, May 5th is LDS night for the Mariners.

Maybe some of the African American players should say they are sitting out warmups because Black Mormons couldn't be ordained to the priesthood until 1978.

Surely, he didn't mean that.
The fact that you're not sure is the point.

On a lighter note, I took a look at the Sharks’ Pride jersey and I actually almost changed my entire opinion and started agreeing with Reimer. Just once it’d be nice for a player to refuse to wear a Pride jersey not because they want to remind gay kids that they aren’t even worth wearing a one-off shirt for, but because that shirt is ugly and the entire LGBTQ community deserves better.

A clip art shark with “love” written on hockey sticks in cursive? Ugh.

The pride movement, while specifically acknowledging LGBTQ+ struggles and inclusion, also has a theme of being an anti-bullying campaign in general. It's a good cause and supporting it doesn't infringe on anyone's religion.

I can't disagree or say anything. I'm fearful for my life and career. The movement is all good and pure. There is no negative agenda, it's all love!

Compelled speech is adjacent to totalitarian thinking. Which is what this entire thread represents.

"If you're not with us, you're against us" is the height of illiberal thinking.

BoLevi I really have a very simple question. Why not wear it? What's the big deal?

Millionaire hockey players citing religion for not wearing a freaking jersey is pretty rich (pardon the pun)

From the best selling book of all time:

When he heard this, he became very sad, because he was very wealthy. Jesus looked at him and said, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of heaven! Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven."

Reimer probably didn't worry about this as much when signing the multi-million dollar contracts.

I don't think it's a big deal. But if Reimer does then I don't think he should be compelled to. (Or bullied for not wearing it, which is exactly what this thread is doing).

Totalitarian thinking requires compliance.

What’s actually illiberal is taking away the rights of queer people. There is a SCOTUS Justice who basically begged for people to challenge Obergefell so that they can strike it down. We can see from how striking down Roe v. Wade how quickly rights will be stripped away. Imagine having your marriage taken away from you. State after state we are seeing illiberal attacks on the rights of queer people. Illiberalism is taking over the US and it isn’t from “woke” people…it’s people like Reimer.

But Reimer can be a snowflake who’s triggered by wearing a jersey for a few minutes…boo ####ing hoo.

People criticizing Reimer for refusing to wear 1 of the 10 jerseys as calling LGBTQ a ďlifestyleĒ? Totalitarian, compelled speech, illiberal.

Someone criticizing other posters for sharing their opinion on Reimerís decision and his beliefs? Protectors of free speech and liberal values.


Surprised we havenít had someone mention woke moralists yet.

Stop bullying us into agreeing with you. Youíre being an illiberal dictator.
