MADISON, Wis., May 12, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- The floodgates of immorality have increased dramatically in sports. An NFL team has drafted an open homosexual player, the USA Olympic Committee is promoting homosexuality, and Nike is funding a gay marriage political action committee (PAC) in Oregon.
The St. Louis Rams selected Michael Sam in the seventh round of the NFL draft. After being selected, Sam kissed his gay lover on ESPN in celebration.
Before the 2014 Sochi Olympics, the US Olympic Committee passed a non-discrimination policy to promote homosexuality. During the Games, President Obama sent a delegation of former athletes to Sochi who were gay.
In the fall of 2013, Nike founded a PAC to promote gay marriage in Oregon. The PAC was launched with $280,000.
Nike has supported homosexual causes in the past. They were instrumental in supporting Oregon's domestic partnership law. Nike filed a "friend of the court" brief urging the Supreme Court to force the federal government to recognize gay marriage.
Additionally, Nike gives preference to homosexual suppliers. They give spousal benefits and adoption assistance to homosexual employees. Plus, they cover sex-change operations.
"There has always been sinners in sports as sports is a reflection of society. However, the floodgates of immorality have dramatically increased over the last few years," says 4 WINDS President Steve McConkey. "Sports people throughout the world are caving into the homosexual agenda."
