The St. Louis Cardinals have taken pride in sponsoring “Christian Day” for the last 30 years, but recently gay activists have begun to pressure the Major League Baseball team into canceling the special day, or at the very least to remove former Cardinals star Lance Berkman as the event’s spokesman. To it’s credit, the team has rejected their demands.
Gay activists are upset that the Cardinals have allowed Berkman to be the spokesman of “Christian Day” because he recently spoke out against transgender boys posing as girls in school locker rooms. According to reports, Berkman said:
“The issue is, what to do about a 15 or 16-year-old boy who thinks he’s a girl and wants to shower with the girls. Maybe he is [transgender], maybe he’s confused. But I wouldn’t want him in the shower with my daughters. We shouldn’t have the rights of 2 percent of the population trump the rights of the other 98 percent.”
An anti LGBT speaker at a baseball game? Espousing hate at "Christian Day?" Wow, what have we come to? Truly awful. No empathy. Ugh. Hate it

It looks more like the LGBT is espousing hate, not the St. Louis Cardinals.
Young Conservatives reports:
Over the last decade or so, the left has engaged in a vocal effort to ensure that Christianity is completely removed from the public square. Freedom of religion seems to not apply to Christians anymore and you can ask The Little Sisters of the Poor about how the Obama Administration treated Christians.
Christmas is frowned upon. Praying in schools has become controversial. Pro-lifers are treated like they belong in an insane asylum. Everywhere you turn, the culture war is in full force.
