Sharks' goalie James Reimer refuses to wear LGBT pride jersey, citing "personal faith in Jesus Christ who died on the cross for my sins"

A hero emerges from last night's madness! Please pay attention because this is how you do it.

The San Jose Sharks hosted "Pride Night" during their game last night, a celebration of all things LGBTQIA+TBA, even going so far as having their Twitter account posting "LGBTQIA+ information" during the game instead of, you know, covering the game.

Included in the rainbow extravaganza were LGBTQ-themed warmup jerseys that the Sharks were expected to don to, you know, change the world and all that. Here are the jerseys (ROFL):

That logo tho! I can't. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ญ

ANYWAY, back to the hero of the situation: Sharks goaltender James Reimer said "NO THANKS" to all this totalitolerance, and somehow did so in a way that was tactful, graceful, firm, and evangelistic all at once.

Check it out:

He said "nope," told the world that Jesus died for his sins (there's an implicit invitation there), explained that he had no hate for anybody, and called the Bible "the highest authority in his life" (there's an implicit invitation there).

What a smart guy and what a witness! I'm actually shocked that 1.) the Sharks let him opt out of the gay jerseys and 2.) the Sharks allowed him to release this statement.

That is how you do it! ๐Ÿ‘
