Crosstalk: June 20, 2018
Steve McConkey is the president of 4 Winds Christian Athletics, a sports ministry that takes a stand for Christian athletes and encourages athletes to defend Christianity.
Steve began by noting how there's no testosterone test for numerous women's athletic events. In the case of the Olympics, he indicated that there's been victory in the last few months because the Olympic committee took up the recommendation to lower the testosterone levels which will make it harder for transgenders to compete. Unfortunately in events at the high school level or even in the Boston Marathon, an athlete can just declare that they're a woman or man and compete with no testing parameters whatsoever.
Jim then mentioned the Connecticut State Open Track and Field Championships. 2 individuals had a great day but they both identified as transgender. They are biologically male but competed as females.
While human rights activists praise this advance in so-called LGBTQ rights, parents of high school students are beginning to stand up against this. The concern is over the rights of biological girls that are defeated in such circumstances. They've trained year after year only to be beaten by a biological male who wishes to identify as a female. Not only are records shattered, but these girls can have their college scholarship dreams shattered, once again, simply because a biological male decides he wants to declare himself a female.
What about professional sports? This year we're seeing the largest number of Major League Baseball teams that are promoting homosexuality at LGBT pride nights.
Pride flags can be unfurled and homosexuals can also be seen kissing via stadium 'kiss cams'.
The New York City Pride Parade takes place this weekend. For the first time 'Outsports' is reporting that the NFL and Major League Baseball will be participating.
Also, this Thursday (June 21st) the Minnesota Vikings will become the first NFL team to host a summit on LGBTQ inclusion. It will include panels featuring gay, lesbian and transgender athletes and coaches
Steve comments on this and much more along with taking questions and comments from Crosstalk listeners.
