Quote from: OrangeBlack on March 24, 2023, 10:14:04 AMIn regards to Pride Night, I think it's important to respect the fact that players shouldn't be forced to wear the jersey if they have strong religious beliefs. We shouldn't judge the validity of their beliefs. Religion is a personal thing, & the strength & type of worship/beliefs vary from person to person.
Hockey players as a whole are the most down to earth, real people out of the 4 major sports. That should be embraced, whether you agree or disagree with them.
That might be fair if they applied that standard to all of their religion's teachings - like, for instance, prohibitions on gambling - and not selectively.
Also, whatever happened to "love thy neighbor", "do unto others", and "love the sinner, hate the sin"? You know, the most important teachings of basically every major religion.
