Recently, James Reimer, the San Jose Sharks' goaltender, decided not to wear his pride jersey during the warm-up on pride night.

What was the reason behind Reimer's refusal to wear the pride jersey?

Reimer shared a statement addressing his decision not to wear the pride jersey:
«For all 13 years of my NHL career, I have been a Christian - not just in title, but in how I choose to live my life daily. I have a personal faith in Jesus Christ who died on the cross for my sins and, in response, asks me to love everyone and follow Him.
I have no hate in my heart for anyone, and I have always strived to treat everyone that I encounter with respect and kindness. In this specific instance, I am choosing not to endorse something that is counter to my personal convictions which are based on the Bible, the highest authority in my life.
I strongly believe that every person has value and worth, and the LGBTQIA+ community, like all others, should be welcomed in all aspects of the game of hockey»

In the midst of ongoing debate and criticism surrounding pride jerseys, it seems that Reimer supports the inclusion of the LGBTQIA+ community in the hockey world. However, due to his religious beliefs, he opted not to wear the pride jersey.
