Megan Rapinoe Takes Another Shot At Christians After Saying Injury Is ‘Proof’ God Isn’t Real: ‘They’re Not Okay’

"Somebody needs to check on the Christians. They’re not okay."

Controversial soccer star Megan Rapinoe mocked Christians during a recent podcast addressing remarks she made about her soccer injury being “proof” God doesn’t exist.

In her final game before retirement in November, Rapinoe suffered an injury to her achilles. “I’m not a religious person or anything and if there was a God, this is proof that there isn’t,” she told the media in a post-game interview, The Daily Wire previously reported.

Addressing the remarks on the “Pablo Torre Finds Out” podcast, Rapinoe mocked Christians for being upset about the comments. “Somebody needs to check on the Christians. They’re not okay,” Rapinoe snarked, according to Fox News. “They also missed the whole joke, but okay.”

“Don’t act like you’re surprised by me making this joke about what happened or finding a dig,” the 38-year-old continued. “Who’s it at? God, myself, religion, the world? I don’t know. It’s just funny.”

Rapinoe, referring to herself as a “controversial figure,” went on to say that some people celebrated her injury, and those people are in a “special place in hell.”

“I’m just thinking about my teammates coming over and — of course, it’s sad, but it’s also like — I don’t know, it’s kind of just like life,” she recalled. “We want these perfect stories, and I’m like a controversial figure and having people low-key celebrate it. But then also be so disingenuous about it that that part is kinda funny, too. I’m like, wow, you guys are in a special place in hell that you’re celebrating this.”

Rapinoe has indeed been a controversial figure throughout her soccer career. When she was playing on the U.S. women’s national team, she often led anthem-kneeling before games and frequently sounded off on Left-wing causes. She also curiously turned her back on girls and women-only sports.

Notably, in 2022, Rapinoe mocked girls’ sports, specifically girls’ volleyball, while advocating for the inclusion of boys and men who identify as transgender in female sports. The athlete told Time magazine at the time that female athletes and their parents need to suck it up over advantages male athletes have over girls and asserted that she’s “100% supportive” of “trans inclusion” in girls’ sports.

Dismissing concerns about fairness, Rapinoe said that people “need to understand that sports is not the most important thing in life.”

“I would also encourage everyone out there who is afraid someone’s going to have an unfair advantage over their kid to really take a step back and think what are we actually talking about here,” she told Time. “We’re talking about people’s lives. I’m sorry, your kid’s high school volleyball team just isn’t that important.”
