Workout company CrossFit has terminated its Chief Knowledge Officer over non-controversial statements he made in support of an Indianapolis gym that cancelled a “Pride Month” workout.
“CrossFit is a diverse community in every way, and that’s what makes us strong. No matter who you are, how you’re built, what you believe, or who or how you love—we are proud of you,” the company said on Twitter.
Russell Berger was terminated by the anti-Christian company after he tweeted his support for the Indy branch, thanking them for “refusing to celebrate sin.”
CrossFit welcomes “diversity” as long as it does not come in the form of diversity of thought, and as long as none of its employees outwardly espouse Christian beliefs.
“The statements made today by Russell Berger do not reflect the views of CrossFit Inc. For this reason, his employment with CrossFit has been terminated,” the company said in another tweet.
CrossFit has made its position perfectly clear: It is no longer acceptable to publicly adhere to Christian values. Further, the CrossFit gym has closed its doors after backlash from the gay hate mob:
“The gym has a history of welcoming and serving people training to be fit,” it said in a statement to a local ABC affiliate. “The gym never has and never will be anything but welcoming to all human beings who live, move and breathe in God’s world.”
For his part, Berger is not backing down. He said in a statement:
“Until my termination yesterday, I was CrossFit’s Chief Knowledge Officer. My comments where [sic] imprudent, and I drug my company in a difficult position, which I deeply regret, especially considering I was not directly asked to weigh in on the subject that inspired my comments. I am particularly saddened for my employer and coworkers, who do incredible and life-changing work for millions of people, and are now forced to respond with their time and resources to this ordeal.
That being said, my beliefs and intentions have been misrepresented, both intentionally and unintentionally. As a Christian, I believe everyone, myself included, is guilty of breaking our moral obligations to God and deserves punishment. But by turning from our sin and trusting fully in Jesus Christ, we can be forgiven and reconciled to our creator. I love those who the LGBTQ community represents, and want them to know Christ, and reveling in sin is a heartbreaking obstacle to that. I use the word ‘sin’ to describe pride events, and the sexual lifestyles associated with them, because that’s what God’s Word calls it, and I believe that God’s Word is true. The same theology that leads me to this view leads me to the knowledge that all humans are created in God’s image, and are therefore inherently valuable and deserve to hear this offer of God’s grace. From the Christian perspective, the most hateful thing I could do for someone would be to lie to him or her about sin and our need for Christ, as unpopular as this may be in our culture today.
TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).
