The Left’s war on God continues.
Outspoken liberal activist Megan Rapinoe regularly uses her platform on the U.S. Women’s Soccer team to push her left-wing agenda.
She is “better known for her outrageous political statements than her performance on the field,” Western Journal notes.
Alongside other liberal elites, Rapinoe attended the Met Gala in New York City.
Rapinoe wore a red, white and blue pantsuit and carried a clutch purse that she held up to make sure it was photographed as she entered.
On the purse, it read, “In Gay We Trust.”
She altered the official motto of the United States “In God We Trust” by replacing the word “God” with “gay.”
The liberal media immediately celebrated Rapinoe’s outfit.
The Associated Press said she looked “smashing in her bright red silk Sergio Hudson pantsuit with a royal blue blouse emblazoned with white stars — she nailed Monday evening’s sartorial theme, American independence.”
Not everyone was thrilled with Rapinoe’s outfit.
Here are some of the other reactions:

Rapinoe failed to bring home the goal medal at the Tokyo Olympics. The team suffered devastating losses to lower-ranked teams, which ended their 44-game winning streak.
Nonetheless, all 22 players on Team USA managed to take a knee before their game at the Olympic opener against Sweden in support of Black Lives Matter.
In a bombshell statement, former U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo said Megan Rapinoe would bully others to comply with her left-wing activism.
Rapinoe, an outspoken liberal, would pressure her teammates into kneeling before games, Solo alleged.
Rapinoe used her position on the U.S. women’s Olympic soccer team to advance her left-wing agenda.
She has become an extremely polarizing figure. Rather than focusing on soccer, she uses the field as a backdrop for her left-wing protests.
Solo said, “I think the rhetoric surrounding this team has been both divisive and inclusive. I guess it’s kind of where we are in politics in this day and age.”
“I think the kneeling thing can be very divisive,” she continued. “I’ve seen Megan Rapinoe almost bully players into kneeling because she really wants to stand up for something in her particular way.”
“I think that’s really hard being on the main stage right now with so many political issues for athletes, there’s a lot of pressure,” she added.
