Soccer star Jaelene Hinkle has often shared her Christian faith with fans on social media. And when the U.S. national soccer team called on athletes to wear a ‘gay pride’ jersey, she took a stand.
Christian soccer player Jaelene Hinkle has withdrawn herself from the U.S. soccer team after it was announced that the squad would be wearing rainbow colored ‘gay pride’ jerseys in their upcoming game. She cited “personal reasons” for her refusal to play, according to The Christian Post.
The star proudly declares Colossians 3:23 on her Twitter which says: “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.” “If you live for people’s acceptance, you’ll die from their rejection,” the tagline also notes on her profile.
