US-guardian Ashlyn Harris dismissed back on the former teammate Jaelene Hinkle Monday after an interview in which Hinkle said the women's national team was "not a welcoming place for Christians," resumed online.
"Hinkle, our team is about inclusion. Your religion has never been the problem. The problem is your intolerance and you're homophobic," wrote Harris, who is a fianc2ee with American teammate Ali Krieger. "You do not belong to a sport that aims to join and join people. You will never fit our package or what this team supports."
"Do not you dare say that our team is not a 'welcome place for Christians'. You did not have a long time to know what this team means," Harris added. "This is really an insult to the Christians in our team. Same for you. "
In the interview that was filmed in 2008, Hinkle said she had chosen to compete with the US Team for two years, because she did not want to wear a Pride shirt as a support for LGBT rights.
"I just felt so convicted in my spirit that it was not my task to put on this jersey," Hinkle said to the 700 Club. "I basically resign the one dream that girls dream of all their life. It was very displeased.
"I knew in my spirit that I did the right thing. I knew I was obedient."
The United States repeated as Women's World Cup champions earlier this month.
