    Does she hate America? No, she's come out and said she hates the President. I guess, you know, she goes out and plays for the US and is one of the most successful US sports personalities, kind of suggests she doesn't hate the US to me.

    Hinkle, on the other hand, declined to participate in the required political messaging. And since then has been discriminated against because she didn't "take a knee".
    Also, there's no question Jaelene Hinkle, at the time this was all occurring, was one of the best players at her position, if not the best. Even Outsports, a website that focuses on LGBTQ issues, acknowledged as much, and that the reason for her call-up and then cut was to possibly avoid Title VII litigation:

    Bringing Hinkle in made a lot of sense, from a soccer-related point of view. She’s a naturally left-sided defender who fits coach Jill Ellis’s desired profile for an outside back: in short, a speedy player who can contribute as much going forward, in running up the wings to cross into the box, as she can defensively.

    Followers of the NWSL broadly agree she’s been the best left back in the league this season....

    The most straightforward explanation for the call and subsequent cut may be — and I’m stressing the may there, because this is speculation on my part — that USSF brought Hinkle back in to avoid litigation. The federation declined to comment on that question, but according to an employment lawyer I spoke with (who asked to remain anonymous), based on what we know about Hinkle’s situation, there is reason to believe she may have had a case, had she chosen to sue.

    Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prevents employers from firing or refusing to hire someone because of their religious beliefs. The relevant issue here is whether Hinkle was being kept out of the national team as a result of deciding not to play in games where the team planned to wear rainbow numbers.

    Kaepernick, on the other hand, sucked. Not much of a loss for the league.

    Does Jaelene Hinkle hate gays? No. If she does, she's in the wrong sport. And she hasn't come out and said she hates anything. In fact, just the opposite. That's class, unlike the classless and foul-mouthed Rapinoe.

    If you are now revealing that this isn't about Hinkle, but really want rant about Christians, fine by me. But demonizing and expressing bigotry towards Christians is a different subject...not relevant to the OP.
    Come on. These players play in stadia which is filled with advertising. They have to play countries like North Korea. They're billboards for other people's causes because that's where the money comes from.

    Hinkle said she didn't join USWNT due to LGBTQ jersey | Sporting News

    Here's a photo of her wearing a shirt with "continental" on it. You think she's pro-tires?

    Sponsors And Partners

    Also the US women's soccer team has Volkswagen, that has Hitler connotations. Nike, sweatshops, AT&T, lack of privacy, fraud, racism, Budweiser, I mean, alcohol isn't always seen as a good thing by religious people, Coca-Cola, bad company all round, pushing sugar on kids and getting little to not taxes because they bribe the governments of the US, Cutter, insect repellent, kills insects with poison, Johnson & Johnson, I mean, one of the big evils in the world.

    Yep, she has no problem with these. But she does have a problem with numbers on the back of the shirt being done in a rainbow. Wow.

    There are 40 out LGBTQ participants at the 2019 Women’s World Cup - Outsports

    Three of the team at least are gay. There's a picture of three of them together, two of them are engaged to each other.



    However Hinkle has the right to think what she wants. She has the right to refuse to play for the team that has rainbows on the shirts. Hell, she can even cry when a rainbow appears in the sky. Who cares? What she has to realize is that playing for the national team is a privilege and not a right, you get called up because someone in charge thinks you can benefit the team. The person in charge did not think that. Her rights are intact.

    The point of what I was saying was that I have been told numerous times (I didn't start this) that it's bigotry to do anything to anyone based on their religious beliefs. I was pointing out that those religious beliefs are MASSIVELY pick and choose. That if it can be pick and choose then I can make up a religion and literally just hate on anyone and everything that I don't like and then hide behind my religious beliefs.

    Now, Hinkle has the right, in the US, to do that. She literally can go around preaching to God for all anyone cares. But if she causes friction with a team, then she isn't going to get called up. She's chosen her religion over her job and her sport. Her problem.

    Kaepernick, on the other hand, sucked. Not much of a loss for the league.
    Again, Roy Keane in 2002 was THE BEST PLAYER in the Irish team at the 2002 men's soccer World Cup and he was sent home. Boohoo.

    This Hinkle woman, as far as I can tell, isn't indispensable. The player that is indispensable, the star of the team and the 2019 World Cup, happens to be gay, and this non-important player (because they won without her, that's how important she is) decided to anger the best player in the team.

    Roy Keane went against the team and the coach. Out. Hinkle actually chose to leave the team.

    What's the difference?

    The difference is people think they can hide their problems behind their religion and get special treatment.

    Kaepernick might have sucked. Personally I don't think he should have even been given the opportunity to do what he did. The anthem has no place in internal sports. National games, you're representing the country, fine, but he wasn't. So why's it even there? Oh, that's right, it's political, the US Army wanted to get more cannon fodder from black kids.

    Looks like she's in the wrong sport.

    She hasn't said anything, she's let her actions speak.

    Who cares is Rapinoe is foul mouthed? I'm foul mouthed too. Get the **** over it.

    Because the NFL is a Communist type organization.

    Go look at soccer in Europe, that's capitalism. Sports in the US, communists.

    Kind of like Michael Sam, eh? He was there for a flash, and then--pfft--disappeared. At least Hinkle is still on a professional squad.

    Oh, I am over it. I cuss like a sailor because, well, I was one. But then I'm not representing the United States in an international sports tournament. It's just another indicator of her base mentality.

    Well, she's there, she's doing what she can, and she doesn't have a 2019 winner's medal from the World Cup. C'est la Vie.

    Classy lady? Or just that you agree with her?

    So, someone representing the US should be an English lady then?

    Wow, I wonder how bad that team would be.
