Sadly, 23 of the 30 Major League Baseball (MLB) teams are promoting homosexuality through "LGBT Pride" nights this year, reported Outsports.com. In addition, only two MLB teams -- New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels -- have never held such "pride" nights.

Outsports.com co-founder Jim Buzinski wrote that the teams were continuing "to court their LGBT fan base" and that the "pride nights will be a big draw in Major League Baseball this season."

MLB Vice President Billy Bean, an openly homosexual former player, said of the "pride nights" in 2017, "I couldn't be prouder of baseball -- we're really leading the way," reported LifeSiteNews.com

"In the spirit of Jackie Robinson, on the 70th anniversary, we feel like we have to lead the industry and be strong role models."

Jackie Robinson (1919-1972) was a legendary basball player and the first black American to play in the Major Leagues --starting in 1947 -- since Moses Walker played in 1889. There is no equivalency between race and sex and it is not known whether Robinson ever supported homosexuality. 

At MLB's "LGBT Pride" nights, the gay rainbow flags are often unfurled, there is "raibow-themed baseball merchandise," the promotion of LGBT organizations, and homosexuals or transgenders are often invited to throw the cermonial first pitch, reported LifeSiteNews. 

The stadiums, despite the presence of children, also often use the "kiss cams" to project gays kissing onto a large screen.
