    Did God help Gabrielle Douglas win?


    Gabby Douglas is now officially a star. When she won the individual gold medal in women’s gymnastics in London Thursday, the breakout darling of the 2012 games, she immediately found herself a celebrity worthy of a cereal box. If her performance in the women’s individual all-around didn’t blow your mind, you cannot possibly have been paying attention. Yet after her victory, one of the first responses that truly resonated for me was from a colleague who noted, “I would like her more if she were not so, so, so into Jesus.” Which raises the question – what is Jesus going to do now for Gabby Douglas’ career?

    Douglas isn’t exactly the only outspoken Christian in America – or even the only high-profile Christian athlete. So jam-packed is this year’s roster with them that Douglas didn’t even make the cut for the Christian Post’s “10 Christian Athletes to Watch.” But her newly minted status as a champion and her unguarded outspokenness about her faith are going to give her a new platform from which to preach. After her win Thursday, Douglas said, “I give all the glory to God. It’s kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to him and the blessings fall down on me.”

    She’s a 16-year-old with both deep faith and profound gratitude, a girl who yesterday tweeted from the Psalms to her followers, “Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me” and Friday sent out a retweet from the Faith in God feed. And that clearly authentic image of a hardworking girl with strong values makes her a natural icon to her fellow Christians, just as it makes the somewhat less faithful uncomfortable.http://www.salon.com/2012/08/03/did_...e_douglas_win/

    When is the left going to boycott her?

    God bless that girl. She did a great job this year, and deserves what she got.

    But the whole gig falls apart if it is a learned behavior.

    Even the guys who have been cited as "discovering" the "gay gene" have backed off and said homosexuality happens because of a person's environment (family, social exposure, etc.).

    Or believing that because you're gay you're not afforded equal treatment under U.S. law.

    Now the gays are saying that their right to get married is the same as the civil rights movement of the 60's. *face palm*
