Ivan Provorov Lives Not By Lies

Orthodox Christian hockey star declines to don team LGBT Pride gear out of religious conscience

Philadelphia Flyers hockey star Ivan Provorov is a Russian Orthodox Christian who actually believes in his religion, and as such, might just be History's Greatest Monster, apparently:

Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov cited his Russian Orthodox religion as the reason he did not participate in pregame warmups when the team wore Pride-themed jerseys and used sticks wrapped in rainbow Pride tape.

The 26-year-old Provorov boycotted the pregame skate with his teammates before Tuesday night's game against Anaheim as the Flyers celebrated their annual Pride night in celebration and support of the LGBTQ+ community. He played nearly 23 minutes in Philadelphia's 5-2 victory.

“I respect everybody's choices,” Provorov said after the game. “My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion. That's all I'm going to say.”

In a liberal society, that should be the end of it. But we don't live in a liberal society anymore. We live under a progressive soft totalitarianism. Here's a queer Olympic gold medalist wanting Provorov benched for bigotry:

Lotta stuff like this on Twitter. It's still too early to tell what the media response is going to be, but in truth, I think we know. Take a look below at Provorov answering a question about it after the game. The man is clearly respectful of people who disagree with him, but is not going to apologize for following his conscience in defiance of the Woke Totalitarians. The living God means more to him than the idols of this decadent age. Axios!

Josh Daws is 100 percent right:

These wokesters ruin sports by shoving cultural politics down people's throats until they gag. Witness the DC hockey team's activism. What does crap like this have to do with hockey?

UPDATE: Good grief. Visibly furious Canadian nut wants the Flyers fined $1 million over this:

Watch for it - Russia, Russia, Russia.

Who'da believed it? Christianity is out of sync with our western values. Following Christ - so obviously a Russian influence campaign.

Arrest and deport this guy back to Russia, and seize any assets and send them to Z, er General Dynamics.

That Twit of a post from the Washington Capitals could have been as easily from Washington's capitalists.

They're here, they're Queer and they're in your face. And down your throat. Almost more than metaphorically - suck on that.

As I saw clearly, the exact arc of Sodom. First tolerate, then celebrate, then ultimately forced to participate.
