NFL logoThursday will mark the first time a team from the National Football League will host a summit and fundraiser to solely emphasize the inclusion of homosexuals and transgenders in professional sports. 

The all-day event promoting alternative lifestyles will take place at the new headquarters of the Minnesota Vikings, where the “Purple People Eaters” will host the inclusion event to accommodate the LGBTQ community

According to a press release on the Vikings’ website, the NFL team has invited college and high school coaches, staff and administrators, as well as local LGBTQ organizations to attend. 

4 Winds USA President Steve McConkey and his Christian sports ministry lament that the sports industry is inserting itself into politics by promoting unhealthy and unbiblical lifestyles.

"So, it's basically a total endorsement for the sin of homosexuality,” McConkey asserted. “It's a situation where they're going to have a summit and discuss how they can further the agenda inside the NFL."

According to the Vikings’ press release, ideas and best practices will be shared through a series of panel discussions, interviews and testimonials from LGBTQ athletes.

"If you would have told me 20–30 years ago that sports would be used as a vehicle for the homosexual agenda, I would have never believed it," McConkey shared.

McConkey told OneNewsNow that this is just another sign of sports teams catering to the left.

"Minneapolis is a very liberal center, and I think what happened is these pro teams are trying to please certain individuals in society," the Christian leader expressed.

The Vikings announced that there will also be a reception to raise funds for local and national LGBTQ groups.
