Sending thoughts and prayers is a cheap way to evade taking responsible steps in a crisis. In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, sports authorities take spirited steps:
In preparation for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the United Nations joined the Olympic Movement in calling for a hallowed Olympic truce. Now, the IOC is forced to condemn Russia’s breach of the sacred peace:
Spirited action also comes from the soccer world: Poland, Sweden and the Czech Republic are asking for their WCQ playoff matches to not be held in Russia:
You can do something by mobilizing and organizing huge demonstrations. Make your voice heard. Make the voice of democracy heard. Say it loud and clear that international law and democracy are under attack, that war is the greatest evil and that life is sacred.
Who doesn’t appreciate a quick round of Rock, Paper, Scissors? Something similar happened on Twitter today:
Matt Hamilton pushed a little curling rock on the Olympic ice in Beijing. NBC tagged Dwayne ‘ The Rock’ Johnson and shared his likeness on the thing being pushed on the ice. Both derive their name from St. Peter whose name is Latin for – you guessed it – The Rock:
And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.
Two times PFL champion Kayla Harrison went to a church Valentines Party. She attends Park Ridge Church in Coralsprings, Florida. The church aggressively claims, “Christians should oppose […] homosexuality.” Kayla is posing happily for a photo at church knowing full well that the place is very exclusive in which kinds of love are celebrated and demonized. “Happy Valentines to me but not to you,” is a strange message to teach your children.
Real Salt Lake is excited to get Sergio Cordova on loan from FC Augsburg. The Forward became available thanks to RSL’s new ownership. The 24 year old “thanks God for this beautiful opportunity in my life.”
The Roman Catholic Church is a global institution just like the International Olympic Committee. Both are organized in national bodies under a global roof. It only makes sense that Francis joins with a message of global peace.
