I don't necessarily buy into the fact that the Olympics is "evil" in and of itself.
Yes, I get it with the immodesty, over glorification of man ( and women these days) over the top patriotism, political correctness and even the corruption within some of the judges and such.
But the positives do outweigh the negatives in most cases. Firstly, is seems to encourage many of the youth to get in shape and take part in athletics because you know, especially in the U.S. many children are morbidly obese. Also, it keeps them off the streets and forces them into clean living, so they take care of themselves physically and not descend into bad habits like smoking, drinking, drug abuse, etc.
For some of these athletes their training and competition has been a saving grace for them, many of the women come from cultural cesspools where females are treated like dogs. this gives some of them an escape from a life of oppression and abuse and I mean real abuse, not like the imaginary concept of "gender discrimination " we have in this country.
Lastly, it does give a chance to publicly display your faith worldwide like this woman did and you know like the other poster said, this drives the Jews, secularists and atheists crazy and they can't say a damn thing about it.
Especially a black woman who just gold-medaled, they have to keep their mouths shut and not natter on about religious "kooks" and "bigots".
Reminds me the time Mother Teresa accepted some kind of international noble award for her good samaritan work with the poor in India and she used the podium to chide the world on the evils of abortion and the libs couldn't say a thing, they had to just sit there and take it.
