Red Sox Fans Rip The Team For Putting Logo In Rainbow Colors For LGBT Pride (TWEETS)
There’s many topics that can be brought up during the course of talking about sports that will garner hateful comments, but not many gets the amount of hate quite like when homosexuality is brought up.
On Thursday, the Boston Red Sox did pretty cool thing when they painted the team’s logo in rainbow colors as a decal on the pitching mound prior to the game for LGBT Pride Night.

As you’ll tell fairly soon, it wasn’t well received by many people who couldn’t understand why the team was doing and wanted to know when they would have a ‘Straight Pride Night.’
Is this really necessary?

As a proud Red Sox fan since 1897 I can’t believe they are doing this! My children are at this game! I don’t want them exposed to this kind of degeneracy!

I’m sorry, but honoring every different group in some way or another is getting tedious.

But who really cares about LGTBQ?🤨 We’re here to play baseball. Not fluff these soft X or Z generation kids. Love is love. Cool catch phrase. I’d rather hear “Let’s play ball”⚾

What is wrong with these people? Why are we celebrating what God calls an abomination?
