Why does the BBC ignore Usain Bolt’s God? by Archibishop Cramner.
Usain Bolt – the fastest man on the planet – is a devout believer (of the Protestant Christian kind) in the One True God.
And he makes absolutely no secret at all of the fact: he crosses himself to exalt the Trinity, and mouths a prayer to the heavens before every race.
And after each victory, he publicly gives thanks to God, in word and physical supplication. Following yesterday’s triumph in the 200m, he said of his Lord and Saviour: “Nothing would have been possible without Him.”
How odd. In all the coverage of the last eight years on Bolt, I never noticed this and I think I would. Did you know he was a devout Christian? The media lies by omission to put a PC slant on the world.
It is strange that they chose to narrate in minute detail every minute of the countdown: as the clock was ticking, they filmed him on CCTV and followed his every move. They described Bolt’s events and focused on the man and his achievements like they have no other athlete. We were given insights into his family life, with comments by his brother, parents and coach. The focus on the personal has been intense.
Usain Bolt is so near to perfection (black) and yet so far (Christian). But is all it takes is a name change; Usain becomes Hussein!
