    Yeah I follow he team closely, and almost no one was talking about her making the team.
    But you can’t prove a negative and victim hood has become central to the culture, so it had to be her faith.

    There is no obligation to be tolerant of the intolerant.

    Its also an interesting demand to make of a sports team. It would be fun to see people argue on the football boards about how some guy who might be bad for team chemistry and had medium talent should be shown more respect, given a starting job and be given the ball more in the name of tolerance.

    I wish UF would recruit more outspoken white racist kids to go along with our mostly black team. A lot of people justify racism by their faith, too, so it's pure discrimination on the part of the UF staff to not have a few young Klansmen and proud boys on the team.

    Read these scriptures and you might change your mind of Gods stance on this: 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11 and 1 Timothy 1: 9-10. Not to mention Sodom and Gamorrah.

    So two conservative Christians with no apparent expertise in soccer think she's a really good player and the only reason she's not on the team was because of her Christian views.
    Only 23 women were on the team. I imagine there's a lot of really good players who aren't on it. It is, after all, the best team in the world.

    I don't know why your reply would be that. My victim hood? My post was about a person who's opinion was that this player was left off of this team because of her faith which did not align with same sex marriage. For some reason Christian faith is too polarizing now. I believe that the Muslim faith has the same stance on same sex marriage, so my question would be what if the same thing went down with a person of this faith, would there be the same scrutiny or would under today's political climate would they figured out a way to allow her on the team anyway. Just a thought to ponder.

    Probably some solid ISIS recruits who want to kill everyone on the team for religious reasons. Gotta be tolerant of their views.

    Their are many christian's who are not antigay. I typically take the tack that religion is a useless artifact of less knowledgeable, I was trying to say that bigoted world views aren't part of being religious. If you want to take an opposing view go ahead.

    Huh? You want a definition of the word? They have no easily visible or obvious expertise in soccer.
    Maybe you can explain how they do.

    If you're curious how this might play out look up Egyptian soccer superstar Mohamad Salah, who tried to stay apolitical as a Muslim.

    Then again, maybe she was not left off the team because of her beliefs. Maybe she is t good enough. Like Carly Lloyd wasn’t good enough to start. Article speculates “maybe” with no basis in fact.

    More soccer love from Erick Erickson. Seriously, anyone really think we should listen to this guy's opinion about who should make the team and who shouldn't?

    Yeah, I've seen players like Tobin Heath post religious stuff on social media before. I have no idea what her stance on anything is, but clearly you can be publicly Christian and be on the US soccer team.

    He's so good though he's converting fans to Islam. Here's one of their chants:

    There's been a lot of negative reaction from the right to the US women's team victory, and not just because of Rapinoe's comments. I guess it's expected these days.

    Not sure how someone who in an interview says...

    "But Hinkle herself doesn’t seem too rattled by the decision to be left off the U.S. roster. As she told “The 700 Club”: “If I never get another national team call-up again then that’s just a part of [God’s] plan, and that’s OK.""

    would be a cancer. The cancer would be one who refuses to discuss why someone may have different convictions than they have and make it an issue. Maybe this quote does not represent the full story. But she seems to sure come off as a really great person.

    And others are being tolerant of her convictions of what the definition of marriage means?

    Its sort of funny because I doubt they were even paying attention until those Rapinoe comments became news.
