Via Jim Hoft, who knew that progressives watched MMA (they don't)? After his TKO victory, Yoel Romero, sporting a John 3:16 sweatband (there's your first clue, progressives) called for the US to turn its eyes back to Christ:
“What happened to you, USA? What’s going on, you forget the best of the best is Jesus. What happened USA? Go back, go back to what you know. Don’t forget Jesus people.”
The left was rendered powerless by the recent SCOTUS ruling on same sex marriage, and with that, the “power of oppression.” As a result, they replaced “forget Jesus” with “gay Jesus,” because telling people “don't gay Jesus” makes so much sense. Romero apologized for the listening comprehension of the non-MMA-watching individuals but denied making an “anti-gay” remark.
“First of all, I would like to apologize—there was a misunderstanding,” Romero said. “First of all, I'm a man of God and God is love. My expressions are always going to be about love. What I was trying to say was, 'Look for the American Dream.' There was a misunderstanding about gay marriage.
“God told Mary Magdalene, 'You're a prostitute. Go and don't sin anymore.' And he told her with love. Who am I to judge anybody? Even though I didn't refer to that, even though there was a misunderstanding, I will tell you guys something. God made man to be free. Anybody can do whatever they want. I wouldn't be the type of person to critique anybody. I've got to look at myself first. Be a better person. To be able to love people.
“I didn't refer to anybody. What I was trying to say, was, 'United States, thank you for giving me the American Dream.' There's no better country than this one because it is blessed by God. It's in the dollars that this country was made by Christian people. That means it's blessed by God.”
Somehow imploring people to love Jesus is “anti-gay.” So now Christians are denied from making public statements about faith? This is equal how?
