Below is video of Anna Watson. She’s a cheerleader from the University of Georgia and she’d like to become a fitness model.
Also, she loves the Jesus.
Reader Todd asks the same question that came to my mind as I watched the clip:
I give the young lady a great deal of credit for not falling victim to the pitfalls of becoming a fitness model by not succumbing to the pressures of taking legal steroids, but somewhere in all of this, Robin Roberts compliments Anna for wearing her faith on her sleeve and it made me think: I wonder how Robin would treat Anna were she Muslim and doing the same thing, or Buddhist or an atheist?
Anna’s faith is… a bit too Tim Tebowish for my tastes, and maybe I’m being a bit too harsh, but why is it that when people of Christian faith wear it on their sleeve, we instantly elevate their status and, in so doing, belittle the rest?
He’s right, and the implication that Christianity automatically makes you a better person is every bit as slanderous as saying there are no atheists in foxholes. It’s not true and news anchors/reporters should stop acting like it is.
