Blue Jays' Anthony Bass says team is looking for major league park ...



But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.”

Acts 5:29


Don’t Be A Weak and Worldly “Christian” Such as Anthony Bass of the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Team


On Monday, May 29th, Anthony Bass, a relief pitcher with the Toronto Blue Jays took to social media and posted his true beliefs. Which were that people ought to boycott Target retail stores due to Target’s radical and ever-increasing accommodating and approval of homosexuality, transgenderism, and every sexual perversion and immorality under the sun for “Biblical reasons.”

On Tuesday, May 30th, Anthony Bass made a public televised apology for his Christian beliefs.

It is clear that any and all commentary or views in opposition to the religion of sexual perversion and immorality will not be tolerated. Verboten! Nicht annehmbar! [Unacceptable in German]. And the sexually immoral and perverted homosexual and transgender movement has become a religion in America, Canada, and every Western nation on earth.

A Bible believing individual cannot express their faith, the truth contained within the Word of God when it comes to anything — and in these times especially when it comes to human sexuality and what is acceptable to God and what is unacceptable to God.

Evil men and women have no care as to what is acceptable to God or unacceptable to God.

Pagans, all the unbelieving in utter darkness, pursuing pleasure accommodating and approving of sin and evil men and women do not care nor heed the Word of God. They have no light, no real understanding, no real truth, no REAL LOVE within them.


The world, those in utter darkness following and living lives founded on lies foolishly imagine they know real love when they know nothing of it at all. They know fleeting, emotional, feelings kind of love that in reality begins in lust for the most part and either is a sincere feeling but not the true depth of love a true Christian comes to know upon being renewed of mind and spirit, transformed by the Supernatural power of the Spirit of God to begin in our finite and feeble manner to come to understand the depth, breadth, and reality of what true love is. And that love only comes through humbling oneself, repenting of our sin, and committing a faithful and obedient life lived having the Lord Jesus Christ preeminent in our lives. From the moment we are converted not of our doing but by the grace and measure of God until our last breath on this passing to be forever forgotten world.

It is an overused litany and used ofttimes improperly and insincerely, “We are to love the sinner but not the sin,” but if held truly in the heart, convicted, sincere, knowing and living to love our enemies, love our neighbors as ourselves, to love the people God has seen fit in His will to create we certainly must make every sincere effort to love all sinners.

For we were once such sinners ourselves. Perhaps not in the way of sexual perversions or immoralities, but we were all the same before God.

And we remain sinners. As long as we’re in this flesh we still do sin at times.

I pray that true repentance occurred and while we all remain sinners we do not practice and take part in these things, those habits, those places, people, and things that are truly sin and keep us from the Lord living as we once did. Whatever those and they may be.

But we are to make every effort to love everyone. Regardless.

That DOES NOT MEAN THOUGH that we accommodate, we approve of the sin those outside of the faith, or in the faith commit. There appears much confusion, delusion, and illusion — out and out lying with regard that in order to show love to homosexuals and those claiming to be transgender and every sexual deviancy and perversion we must accept, accommodate, and approve of their sin.

We are to abhor and mortify sin. In ourselves. And let others know of sin. Which kills. Sin eternally kills.

So, what is more loving, I ask, to stand firm in the truth and ways of the Word of God and warn those practicing and accommodating and approving of eternally deadly sin such as homosexuality, transgenderism, and every other sexual deviancy and perversion under the sun, or to genuinely care about other folks eternities? Where they may end up for ETERNITY lest they repent, come to know the truth, and turn to God?

Which is real love, true love, a love the sinful lost lustful, and fleshly pleasure-driven world defines, or the love that is known to God, to the Lord Jesus Christ, to the Holy Spirit, and to those who have come out of the utter darkness and into the light to come to understand and finally see?

Do not waver. Do not fold, bend, quiver, go silent into the day or night, do not yield, do not accommodate nor approve of sin and evil, of sexual perversion and immorality, do not apologize for faith in God and faith and trust in the Word of God.

Do not be a sunny day, I don’t need to witness of my faith and if it causes me discomfort I’ll relent, cave in, and agree with the sinful, dark, lying, and lost world.

Fearing men and women more than fearing God.

Fearing fleeting earthly consequences more than eternal ones.

Are we truly God’s people? Or mere pretenders? Paper-thin so-called Christians?

The tests come. And how we pass them matters.

We either stand firm and strong in the faith, in the Word or we fear men and women, we fear monetary and materialistic retribution, we fear losing fame, delusional illusionary glory and adulation, friends, family…


What is worth more here on earth to please men than is worth eternally in heaven to please God?


Stop wavering, stop falling, stop failing, stop remaining silent, stop remaining fearful, stop remaining a convenient when it suits so-called Christian, and demonstrate by our fruits, by our words, our deeds, our works how we believe it is most important to stand firm in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ and firm in the Word of God.

Never apologizing or adopting, accommodating and approving of the world over the ways, and will of God and His Word.

Just as Christianity has come to be a religion, so, too, has the worship, adulation, accommodating, accepting, and approving of every sexual immorality and perversion become a religion.

A true Christian cannot be part of both.

Choose God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the whole of the unchangeable living Word of God, or choose the world. But no one can straddle the fence, have one foot in Christ and one foot in the world loving and accepting both.

Time to choose, Christian. And remain strong no matter the worldly storms that come our way.

Are we built upon the sand, a mere feeling, a whim, thinking we’re something we’re really not, or have we truly built upon the Rock and remain steadfast, strong, firm, resolute no matter the storms, trials, sufferings, and tribulation, the condemnation from the world that may come.

Condemnation from God is much, much more horrible to bear than condemnation from anything or anyone in this passing fallen world.

Blue Jays’ Anthony Bass apologizes for sharing anti-lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and queer+ post

Toronto Blue Jays reliever Anthony Bass issued a public apology one day after sharing a video on social media that endorses anti-lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and queer+ boycotts.

Bass shared a video on his Instagram stories Monday that called for viewers to boycott Target and Bud Light because of those companies’ recent promotion of lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and queer+ pride campaigns.

Bass, who has since removed the video from his social media accounts, made a brief statement Tuesday but did not take questions from reporters.

“I recognize yesterday I made a post that was hurtful to the pride community, which includes friends of mine and close family members of mine. I am truly sorry for that,” Bass said. “I just spoke with my teammates and shared with them my actions yesterday. I apologized with them, and as of right now I am using the Blue Jays’ resources to better educate myself to make better decisions moving forward.

“The ballpark is for everybody. We include all fans at the ballpark. We want to welcome everybody. That’s all I have to say.”

Manager John Schneider said Bass apologized to him and general manager Ross Atkins when he arrived at the ballpark Tuesday. Schneider suggested Bass speak to the team.

Schneider said Bass’ post “doesn’t represent our overall feelings as an organization,” while the Blue Jays said in a statement to the Toronto Star that “individual player sentiments are not representative of the club’s beliefs.”

“The message to the fan base is that we have and will continue to be a huge part of the pride community,” Schneider said.

Schneider said the Blue Jays did not discuss disciplining Bass.

June is pride month in Toronto, with an accompanying festival that is one of the largest of any kind in Ontario. More than 200,000 marchers and more than two million spectators are expected at Toronto’s annual pride parade on June 25.

The Blue Jays are celebrating pride weekend on June 9 and 10, with plans to give out 15,000 rainbow flag jerseys on June 9.

Some athletes have objected to pride nights in recent years. On Monday, Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw told The Los Angeles Times that he disagreed with his team’s recent decision to welcome a lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and queer+ group called the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence at the team’s annual pride night. Last season, several players with the Tampa Bay Rays cited their Christian faith in refusing to wear pride jerseys.

Bass, 35, has a 4.50 ERA in 20 relief appearances this season with the Blue Jays. The right-hander has played parts of 12 seasons in the majors with seven teams.
