OpEd: CrossFit fires employee for expressing standard Christian opinion


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

CrossFit just fired its chief knowledge officer and oftentimes unofficial spokesperson for voicing his opinion that CrossFit-related events celebrating LBGT issues were celebrating “sin.” The company deemed Russell Berger’s opinions prejudice and harmful and officially terminated him Wednesday, the same day he made the remarks on Twitter. Berger’s firing shows there’s plenty of corporate animus to Christians in all walks of life to go around.

Buzzfeed reported “Berger got into hot water Wednesday afternoon when he tweeted about a CrossFit gym in Indianapolis, Indiana, where owners canceled a workout in honor of Pride Month. Many of the coaches and employees quit in protest, according to WTTV TV in Indianapolis. On Wednesday, the gym posted notices that it was shutting down.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Berger, who went to seminary, tweeted this, before later deleting it:

Berger expanded on that tweet in a statement he gave to the Washington Post: “I love those who the LGBTQ community represents, and want them to know Christ, and reveling in sin is a heartbreaking obstacle to that. I use the word ‘sin’ to describe pride events, and the sexual lifestyles associated with them, because that’s what God’s Word calls it, and I believe that God’s Word is true.”
