Many sources have confirmed that Bruce Jenner will transition into a woman on a docu-series this year. Supposedly, the 65-year old former Olympic gold medalist decathlete is happy about his decision. Jenner has been married three times and has six kids, plus four stepchildren.
4 WINDS sports minister Steve McConkey believes this a further indication of where sports is headed after the International Olympic Committee allowed transgenders in the Olympics in 2003. The IOC decision has directly or indirectly emboldened former and current athletes to proudly defy biblical standards.
Thirty-three state high school organizations have already approved transgenders on sports teams. A boy now can compete as a girl and a girl as a boy. Jenner's decision will only increase the confusion as kids look up to athletes as examples. Steve believes Christians will face discrimination if they believe homosexuality is a sin.
Jenner won his decathlon gold medal at the 1976 Olympics with a world-record 8,616 points. He received the James E. Sullivan Award as the top amateur athlete in the United States. Jenner was also the Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year in 1976.
"An athlete of Bruce Jenner's stature becoming a transgender will send a very bad message to the kids of America," says Steve McConkey. "Kids will have another sports hero who is confused and the saga will be broadcast throughout the world. Pray for Bruce Jenner and against television networks for promoting sin."
In 2003, McConkey fought the International Olympic Committee for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. Then in 2013, he stood against the United States Olympic Committee after being the first country to pass LGBT non-discrimination policies before the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. He also opposed the 2014 IOC decision to support LGBT policies.
