A popular columnist and commentator on social issues pointed out on Thursday that there was one Major League Baseball team that ignored the league's earlier promotion of "Pride" night, at which LGBT activists advocated for normalization of their alternative sexual lifestyle choices.
And that team won this year's World Series.
Columnist Todd Starnes wrote, "Only one team in Major League Baseball has refused to bow down to the Alphabet Activists. Only one team has refused to ever hold a Pride Night celebration. And tonight, that team won the World Series."
It was the Texas Rangers, who took the championship four games to one after a 5-0 decision against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fifth game.
It was the first championship for the franchise in its 63-year history.
The team simply had not joined the other teams in the league in celebrating the alternative sexual lifestyles of some fans.
Starnes called those events "pandering to the radical LGBT activists."
The team had defended its position, stating, "Our commitment is to make everyone feel welcome and included in Rangers baseball. That means in our ballpark, at every game, and in all we do — for both our fans and our employees. We deliver on that promise across our many programs to have a positive impact across our entire community."
Ray Davis, the majority owner of the Rangers, acknowledged during the trophy ceremony he is a man of faith, Starnes reported.
Various events have been scheduled for Friday in Arlington, Texas, the team's home, to celebrate.
