MADISON, Wis., April 24, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — Bruce Jenner’s interview with Diane Sawyer on 20/20 will be glorified by the LGBTQ movement. The interview will be on Friday, April 24.
In 2003, 4 WINDS was the only Christian sports ministry publicly taking on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. The IOC effort passed smoothly.
“We knew this would create a problem down the road,” says 4 WINDS President Steve McConkey. “The problem now is even greater than we thought it would be. You now have thirty-three state high school associations allowing transgender athletes on their high school teams. It will only get worse.”
During the last two years, 4 WINDS voiced their concerns when the IOC and the United States Olympic Committee pushed their LGBTQ non-discrimination policies.
“If an athlete is in a church and they voice their view on homosexuality, what are the consequences?” states Steve McConkey. “Free speech is free because the government and sports associations do not have the right to dictate how a person believes. Biblical values are non-negotiable on major doctrines and morals.”
The decline in morals in the USA can be attributed to Christians not knowing how to defend their faith. Christians need to pray and freely voice their concerns.
4 WINDS hopes that those who are in error would come to know Jesus Christ as Savior. The only hope man has is through the cross of Christ. Please contact 4 WINDS for further information.
