Major League Baseball to Host LGBT Pride Night with Gay 'Kiss Cams'
Contact: 4 Winds USA, 608-469-7956

MADISON, Wis. May 14, 2018 /Standard Newswire/ -- In June, twenty-three of thirty Major League Baseball teams will host LGBT Pride Night to coincide with LGBT Pride Month.

Gay people will be shown on "kiss cams." Massive rainbow flags will be displayed. Rainbow-themed baseball merchandise will be for sale. Homosexuals and transgenders will throw out first pitches before games. Young kids will be exposed to the sin of homosexuality.

"Society has slipped to the point that we now celebrate the sin of homosexuality in America," states 4 Winds USA President Steve McConkey. "Sports should not be used to further the LGBT agenda. Maybe, we should celebrate other sins on other game days. I would suggest that families and individuals stay away from LGBT events sponsored by sports teams."

McConkey is the founder and president of 4 Winds USA, a ministry standing up for Christian athletes. In 2003, McConkey started fighting the International Olympic Committee for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. He was the only one who stood against this publicly. Recently, the IOC reversed many of their transgender and intersex policies.

After the 2003 IOC transgender ruling, the movement spread to state high schools, the NCAA, NFL, NBA, MLB, and the military. Steve has fought the LGBT agenda every step of the way.

Also, 4 Winds USA works in other areas. They stand up for athletes when attacked by atheists for Christian activities. They have successfully stopped the Freedom From Religion atheists in many cases. Freedom From Religion is located in Madison, Wisconsin, the home of 4 Winds USA.

Steve McConkey is the founder and president of 4 Winds USA. Steve and Liz started in world-class track and field ministries in 1981. From 1982 through 1992, Steve was a USA National Club Coach for Athletes in Action (Eugene), Lay Witnesses for Christ (Dallas-Ft. Worth), and 4 Winds USA (Minneapolis-St. Paul). Athletes were ranked eighty times.

In 1992, 4 Winds USA dropped the team and started working with all world-class track and field athletes. In 2014, 4 Winds USA started standing up for Christian athletes in every sport. Steve periodically appears on worldwide radio, in global articles, and on television. He graduated with honors from Western Kentucky University (Master of Science-Public Health) and Minnesota State University, Mankato (BS-Community Health). 4WindsUSA.com
