Steph Curry on the All-Star Game: like preachers, like people...

Error message

Everyone is congratulating each other over the NBA's supercilious Adam Silver yanking the All-Star Game from Charlotte. He was taking a stand against North Carolina legislators who had passed a law against sexual predators posing as women and using women's bathrooms. People who matter had been Hoosiering the state over its law for a while, now. It took a little longer than expected but sexual debauchery won the day and the NBA canned Charlotte. The scuttlebutt is New Orleans will be the new host city.

People are morally indignant that a man isn't allowed to pee in the Lady's Room in Charlotte so they send their game over to the city where Lent is celebrated by women baring their breasts. This is our country, today—a nation filled with Christians like Steph Curry.

Turns out Charlotte is Steph's hometown... 

so here's what he said about Charlotte losing the All-Star Game:

I know the league is in a position where they have to make a decision. And Adam Silver’s made one, and we support that.

Earlier, Steph said this about the possibility of the game being moved:

I knew I would be asked about my views on the situation in North Carolina and potential ramifications on next year’s All-Star Game in Charlotte, which I hope can be resolved. While I don’t know enough about the North Carolina law to comment more fully, no one should be discriminated against.

And this:

It's interesting how that intersection is with the state law and the NBA having an event there. Hopefully, the right things need to happen that the All-Star Game stays in Charlotte, because that would be huge for the city ... just to show what Charlotte's all about, regardless of where you fall on that law. Hopefully they can figure it out and keep it there. I think it's really important for the city of Charlotte. I'm sure we can figure it out.t

And this:

I know the NBA has a stance on equality and incorporating all beliefs and people from all sorts of backgrounds.

Steph's responses are awful. Here he is, a Christian son of a Christian father and mother; he's a big boy now with lots of money, so how about just a teensy-weensy taking up his cross for Jesus Christ? Does he have no love for men tempted to wear women's clothes and sneak into women's bathrooms? Can't he use a little of his international starpower to defend lesbians and sodomites against Satan's attack? Does he really have to parade his embarrassment over His Heavenly Father's Moral Law?

Steph sounds like a guy who sits under the preaching of a pastor infected with the Two-Kingdom plague. Someone should remind Steph what Jesus said:

For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. ​(Luke 9:26)
