Former Maple Leaf Plug James Riemer Is The Latest NHL Player To Shun LGBTQ Pride Night Because Jesus Said So

Dean Blundell Mar 18, 2023

I wonder if James Reimer knows that wearing a Sharks Jersey doesn’t make him a shark, a Leaf jersey doesn’t make him a leaf, and a Hurricanes jersey doesn’t mean he’s a fucking hurricane.

I LOVE watching born-again zealots like James parse their words to defend their hateful position on accepting and loving gay people.

The hypocrisy OOZES from their statements, each word contradicting the next when they explain why their loving Christ commands them not to acknowledge gay people on pride night in San Jose 2000 years after Jesus died.

Works are the test of a man. Not words.

And James fucked up all his words in this interview where he said he supports the LGBTQ community but won’t acknowledge them on a night dedicated to them. This means he doesn’t support the LGBTQ community, and he’s blaming Jesus for it.

“I support gay people” and “you can’t support their activity or lifestyle” isn’t just ironic; they are competing statements, and James is dumb enough to think they aren’t.

If your religion says you can’t acknowledge or support a human being, your religion is a hate cult, James. Good luck with all that and your .895 save percentage.
