Why did Reimer refuse to wear his pride jersey?

Reimer recently issued a statement regarding his recent refusal to wear a pride jersey, he stated:

«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»

Pride jerseys have been under a lot of criticism lately from both sides of the argument, it appears that Reimer believes that the LGBTQIA+ community should be welcomed to the hockey community, but, due to his religion, he refuses to wear a pride jersey.
