A CrossFit gym in Indianapolis has reportedly shut its doors for good, after the owner decided to cancel a so-called “Pride Workout” that several employees and members had planned in celebration of LGBTQ “Pride Month.”
Brandon Lowe, owner of the now-defunct CrossFit Infiltrate gym in Indiana’s capital city, was apparently never told about this Pride Workout event, which was set to take place right before the Indy Pride parade that took place in the city’s downtown on Saturday, June 7. Lowe immediately canceled the event after finding out about it, giving the following explanation:
“We believe that true health forever can only be found within humility – not pride.”
This statement of conviction reportedly angered a number of Lowe’s employees, as well as several members of the gym who immediately canceled their memberships in response. These angered individuals proceeded to hold their own pride-themed workout event elsewhere.
As this was taking place, CrossFit Chief Knowledge Officer Russell Berger “tweeted” his own statement of support for Lowe on Twitter, thanking him for standing by his convictions and “refusing to celebrate” sin.” These comments drew similar ire from the LGBT mafia, resulting in Berger being immediately placed on unpaid leave – and just a few hours later, being fired by CrossFit.
Not long after this, a note appeared on the now-locked doors of CrossFit Infiltrate explaining that the location was no longer in operation. And it’s all because the owner refused to bow down to the six-colored rainbow tribe and its obsession with having to make everything gay and constantly be in everyone’s faces.
It was never about excluding gays, lesbians, and transsexuals from working out at CrossFit Infiltrate, it’s important to note. The owner simply did not want his gym to participate in a gratuitous display of pride by those who identify as such – a major distinction.
“The gym has a history of welcoming and serving people training to be fit,” Lowe said in a statement issued to local media following his gym’s closure. “The gym never has and never will be anything but welcoming to all human beings who live, move and breathe in God’s world.”
But this is never enough for LGBT extremists who more often than not demand to be placed on a pedestal at all times. Unless everyone around them is constantly worshiping them for their sexual choices, LGBTers seem to be filled with rage over the “injustices” in the world that treat them as anything other than gods and goddesses (and zes or whatever other pronouns they choose).
It’s truly a sad state of affairs when businesses can now be shut down and executives fired simply for standing by their religious and moral convictions. Freedom of speech, thought, and personal moral belief is very rapidly disappearing in America as a result of LGBT extremism – and it’s only going to continue unless or until normal people stand up to these bigoted bullies.
These promoters of “tolerance” just so happen to be some of the most intolerant people on the planet when it comes to dealing with others who have contrary beliefs. Nobody was ever stopping people who identify as LGBT from working out at CrossFit Infiltration. It was simply that these cultural anarchists tried to hijack a business owned by someone else – and when they were told no, they basically burned the whole thing down.
“The tactics of some in the LGBTQ movement toward dissent is an existential threat to freedom of expression,” wrote Russell Berger in a now-deleted tweet. “The lack of tolerance for disagreement, which has been replaced with bullying Twitter mobs promising ‘consequences,’ should be a concern regardless of your political stance.”
