U.S. Women’s Soccer Goalie: People Who Are Not Accepting of Homosexuality ‘Don’t Belong’ on Team – Michael Foust

A member of the U.S. women’s national soccer team says a fellow soccer player didn’t make the team because of her stance on homosexuality.

U.S. women’s team goalie Ashlyn Harris on Tuesday criticized Jaelene Hinkle, a soccer player for the North Carolina Courage of the National Women’s Soccer League who has been outspoken about her Christian faith. 

In 2017, Hinkle declined a spot on the U.S. women’s national soccer team because the team was requiring players to wear LGBTQ Pride Month jerseys. Her Twitter bio lists a Bible verse, Colossians 3:22. Her Instagram bio says she’s a “Daughter of Christ.” 

Although Hinkle received an invitation to the 2017 team, she did not make this year’s team that won the World Cup. Hinkle hasn’t commented on her absence, but Harris nevertheless took to Twitter to speak out by referencing a tweet from an unrelated person, Obianuju Ekeocha, who tweeted that the U.S. team “is not a very welcoming place for Christians” because of its exclusion of Hinkle.
