MADISON, Wisc., May 30, 2017 /Four Winds Christian Athletics/ — The U.S. men’s and women’s national soccer teams will wear rainbow-themed numbers on their uniforms during June to support LGBT Pride Month.
U.S. Soccer and You Can Play, an organization dedicated to promoting the LGBT agenda in sports, are working together.
The men will wear the rainbow shirts in their game against Venezuela (June 3) in Utah. The women will wear theirs in games against Sweden (June 8) and Norway (June 11). The shirts will be auctioned off for charity after the games.
U.S. women’s coach Jill Ellis is a lesbian who has coached lesbian players such as Abby Wambach and Megan Rapinoe.
“Again, coaches and athletes are being used to force immorality on those who believe homosexuality is a sin,” states 4 Winds Christian Athletics President Steve McConkey. “A person should be able to be involved in sports without top level people promoting something a high percentage of Americans believe is wrong.”
Steve McConkey started in 2003 fighting the International Olympic Committee for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. From there, the LGBT movement spread to state high school associations, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB.
McConkey has fought this agenda every step of the way. He is the only sports minister standing up publicly on a consistent basis.
Starting in December 2013, McConkey started taking Nike on for their support of the LGBT movement and Planned Parenthood. Since then, Nike has lost 20% in the stock market.
On May 11, McConkey sent out a news release against the Adidas sponsored event World OutGames 2017, a 10-day event featuring sports and cultural events in Miami. LGBT athletes from 40 countries were to participate. Right before the Memorial Day weekend event, it was cancelled.
Steve McConkey is the founder and president of 4 Winds Christian Athletics (4 WINDS), a ministry that stands up for Christian athletes. Steve regularly appears on worldwide radio and is frequently quoted in articles throughout the world. He has a Master of Public Health from Western Kentucky University with honors. Steve and his wife started in world-class track and field ministries in 1981 and expanded to all sports in 2014. Steve was born in Des Moines, Iowa, but moved to NW Wisconsin after the sixth grade. He became a Christian after reading the Bible as an undergraduate. 4 WINDS produces BigPlanetWatch.com which provides Worldwide News to Discern the Times, plus Track and Field Report.
