Olympic Gold, God, Or Country. Why Didn’t Serena Williams Cover Her Heart During the National Anthem.
Olympic Gold, God, Or Country. Did Anyone besides me get offended when Serena Williams Skipped the Pledge to the Flag when awarded her Olympic Gold Medal.
So I watched as Serena Williams Got her Gold and stood up on the pedestal without her hand over her heart as they played our national anthem. Now I don’t know about you but I am a patriot. I believe in what the United States of America was founded on. I believe if America falls to socialism, communism or any other form of dictatorship then the world falls as well. I believe what Thomas Paine said “The cause of America is in great measure the cause of all mankind.”
I must admit I was offended when Serena Williams didn’t respectfully place her hand over heart at the paying of our beloved national anthem. I was pretty judgmental (now if I were making judgments about Obama not saluting liberals would be calling me a racist–let’s see if that theory holds up). My feeling was if you cannot pledge to our country and our flag then WHY IN THE HELL should you be allowed to compete for that same country (read on). I feel that men and women who have died for their patriotism throughout history, even to this day, gave their lives to preserve everything for which America stands… and it all is wrapped up in our National Anthem. God Bless America!
Granted, many athletes there were representing ONLY them selves. No patriotism. No representation of dedication to a country. The debate even rumbles about Federer and Murray. Federer who went from Wimbeldon’s favorite son to representing Switzerland. And Murray who is the Scottish Britain. The British tabloids say when Murray wins he is British but when loses he is Scottish. Then You have the Michael Phelps relay were all 4 reverently saluted their flag in the ceremony. So what here is more important, getting “the gold” for YOU or representing and giving your all for YOUR COUNTRY.
So my curiosity was up. Did she just forget in the excitement? What about her giggle when the flag somehow disconnected and blew in the wind towards her but never quite got there. I did a little research and read something about her JW beliefs prohibiting her from saluting any flag. WHAT?!? Well, to be honest I didn’t know what JW beliefs meant so I had to research a little about that as well.
I learned that Serena is a Jehova’s Witness and her religion prohibits her from putting any idols in front of God. Now that pus an entirely different light on things. I also believe in God and every individuals right to practice whatever religion they choose in whatever manner they choose (as long as it doesn’t violate the rights of others). In fact many people who helped found our country were escaping religious persecution. Our founders, in their wisdom, made distinct lines in the sand as to not allow the religious rights of individuals be trampled on by the state.
So now the question is what is more important, Olympic Gold, God, Or Country. I have to respect Serena Williams decision Not to Cover Her Heart During the National Anthem and to stand for what she believes. While I believe that you shouldn’t put anything before your God I also believe that saluting a flag or officer or anything else doesn’t necessarily mean that you have put your country before your God.
I guess after a little research and thoughtful contemplation I have no grudge against Serena Williams decision to Not Cover Her Heart During the National Anthem… I mean how could I, for the sake of country, have negative feelings against someone for exercising their own religious freedoms. The same freedoms our constitution protects and for which men and women have died for. It also confirms that my initial response was not based on race as some liberals might propose.
So let me know your opinions below. Please let me know what you feel, if you agree or disagree, and if you got anything out of this article or not.

Rapper Ice T on US gun control (20July12)
Rapper Ice T on US gun control suggests that people strap bombs to themselves all the time if they decide to go on a killing spree. While I disagree there I do agree with Ice T’s statement which originated with Thomas Jefferson that purpose of the right to bear arms is essential for “We the People” to be able to protect ourselves from the tyranny of governments.
If you want more information how to Legally Protect YOURSELF you should check out http://ccwprotection.com.
For those of you who debate that guns should be controlled think about this; did you know that more people are killed by the automobile each year than by guns? Think about that.
A vehicle created to transport KILLS MORE than guns which are created for the sole purpose of killing.
I would say that is a pretty strong safety record. Also think about this; if automobiles are obviously more dangerous than guns why are gun control freaks screaming to ban automobiles, oh wait, they have enviro-whackos doing that.
If you want to see how to profit from this gun debate by posting your opinions can make you money no matter what side of the debate you are on then watch the FREE video on the right.
