Turned Down USWNT Call-Up Because She Didn't Want To Wear LGBTQ Pride Jersey

I just felt so convicted in my spirit that it wasn’t my job to wear this jersey. And I gave myself three days to just seek and pray and determine what He was asking of me to do in the situation.

I’m essentially giving up the one dream little girls dream about their entire life, and I’m saying no to. It was very disappointing.

So how did she feel all of those years playing with gay teammates. Or did she just turn the other cheek and pretend it didn't exist?

Perhaps there's a difference between accepting someone's lifestyle and promoting it, as the USWNT requires.
