CrossFit Fires Executive Over Gay Pride Month Tweets – and Why They Were Right

CrossFit fired their Chief Knowledge Officer, Russell Berger, when he tweeted his support of an Indianapolis CrossFit gym canceling a LGBT Pride month event.

The firing of Berger, one of the company’s spokespeople, came after a series of deleted tweets in which he celebrated CrossFit Infiltrate’s decision to cancel the Pride month event.

Now if you haven’t read the full the article, let me give you some context. Apparently the owners of CrossFit Gym decided to cancel a Gay Pride Event… the article above explains…

Members and coaches expressed outrage at the decision and one of them reached out to them for further explanation. “Our underlying goal for the staff and members at CrossFit Infiltrate and our other gyms CrossFit White River and University Ave CrossFit, is total health and well-being for the individual and the community. Total health involves the body, the emotions, relationships, and the spirit. At the foundational detractor from health, as we believe God sets the parameters for, is pride. We believe that true health forever can only be found within humility, not pride. Humility is seeing oneself as they truly are, and as God truly defines them to be. As a business we will choose to deploy our resources towards those efforts and causes that line up with our own values and beliefs.”

After this decision was made CKO Russell Berger decides to go on a twitter spree supporting this decision but for different reasons, and going WAY too far…

He tweeted, “Thank you #CrossFitInfiltrate for standing by your convictions and refusing to celebrate sin by hosting an @indypride workout. The intolerance of the LGBTQ ideology toward any alternative views is mind-blowing. #CrossFit”

And…

As someone who personally believes celebrating “pride” is a sin, I’d like to personally encourage #CrossFitInfiltrate for standing by their convictions and refusing to host an @indypride workout.

Now let me be very clear, I have no idea why anyone would hold an “IndyPride Workout” in the first place, why are we celebrating ANY sexual lifestyle in the form of a workout?? I DON’T GET IT. Of course pride is a sin, homosexuality is a sin… the whole idea is abhorrent in the eyes of God and should be for his followers, so I support the decision to cancel such a strange event. But that doesn’t mean I support the actions of Russell Berger who deserved to be fired.

You do not go out in public, and make statements concerning the company you work for, unless that is your job, and they have given you approval over said statements. He obviously has deep rooted convictions on this issue, but what he did was unacceptable, and I would have fired him just as quickly.

Please understand, what you do on social media MATTERS. What you say on these platforms will be preserved ETERNALLY so be VERY sure you stand behind your words, and if you work for a company (and want to keep your job) maybe you should inquire about their social media rules. Most companies today have them.

So what do you think? Should Mr. Berger have been fired? And what the heck is going on with #IndyPride Workout???

What a GREAT DAY OF CELEBRATION for Christians in America today!

While many in our Country have been consistently trying to push God out of all public space, and as far from public view as possible… we finally have a Supreme Court ruling that will SLOW down the LGBT Agenda that has been steamrolling its way through our social system in recent years.

This decision will do nothing to stop them, but it will slow them. Make no mistake there are forces right now amassing legal funds and devising legal and political strategies. These forces stand for everything that is contrary to God. Which is why as Christians, we should be politically active… there is a time to pray (which is always) but there is also a time to get off of our butts and VOTE.

Most people don’t vote outside of the big Presidential races, but the midterms are where the real political power is decided. Talk to your Christian friends, ask them if they are voting, or have voted. We have to Stand Tall For Christ in our Country… will you stand with me?
