Seven players from an Australian premier rugby league team,
the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, recently boycotted an important match
with the Sydney Roosters after their team announced that its players would be
required to wear a rainbow-themed LGBTQ jersey to show support for inclusivity
and diversity. The Sea Eagles
were the first team in Australia’s National Rugby
League (NRL) to wear pride shirts
to boldly promote the LGBTQ agenda. (The depleted squad lost the match 20-10.)
Manly owner Scott Penn subsequently stated that the players would
be open to wearing such jerseys in the future if they were properly consulted
If players on professional sports teams can be forced to wear jerseys—or
other apparel—touting causes and political stances that are abhorrent or
disagreeable to them, they obviously don’t live in an actual democracy or
If they can be forced to wear jerseys promoting
homosexuality, oral sex and sodomy, what’s to stop a progressive and “woke”
team owner from demanding his or her players wear one touting bestiality,
polygamy, polyamory, and/or necrophilia?
NecroPride, baby! NecroPride!
In this case, the Manly team was playing a squad called the
Roosters. Did officials really think all of the players would be excited
to don apparel touting the LGBTQ community?
