The Catholic Defender Surprised Friday Night Watching The Olympics
My wife and I for many years have enjoyed certain sports together. We both love our beloved Crimson Tide, Alabama whose football team has won 6 national championships in a 12 year period. We did enjoy the Kansas City Royals when they went two years running to the World Series and winning one of them.
This year we have not watched any baseball primarily because they moved the All-Star game from Georgia to Colorado because Georgia wants to make sure all votes are legal. We are not wanting to "suppress votes", on the contrary, we want to stop the cheating or the opportunity to cheat.
The 2020 election was horrible with many illegal votes counted. MLB made the move to protest Georgia and so we do not watch MLB this year. I almost have talked my wife to watch the Kansas City Chiefs with me but much of my family refuse to watch the NFL because of the disrespect to the American Flag, the Anthem, and the military. I basically watch the Chiefs now days by myself and that's it. I used to have the NFL package where I could watch any game at any time but I no longer carry that.
From what I have shared already, you can tell that we hold high our patriotism in our family. Counting myself, our family have had 20 deployments to war zones which all together equals more than 20 years of active service in war.
Just looking at this all together we constitute 77 years of active service. Naturally, we are going to be more sensitive against those who disrespect our nation especially on the big stage.
Despite all this, my wife and I have always had a special love watching our athletes competing in the Olympics, it's an opportunity to support our country through competing with the best from all over the world. I just wrote a disturbing article about our Women's Soccer team taking a knee in protest with Sweden joining them. This after the news and pictures of another American earning a medal showed disrespect against the Flag and the Anthem. I had pledged to boycott the Olympics after that but my wife talked me into watching it with her. I had my doubts but I did watch tonight the marching of all the countries participating.
To be honest, it was very colorful watching everyone making their entrance into the stadium. We waited in anticipation looking forward to watching our team to enter in. Finally, towards the end they came out and it was uplifting.
Following when all teams were present and gathered, the Japanese had some colorful dancing and music which included traditional Japanese Kabuki performance seemed interesting. There was a spectacular scene that was made from drones that was very impressive. To this point, we were enjoying the ceremonies taking place until the unimaginable happens.
John Legend and Keith Urban began singing John Lennon's song "Imagine" that left me speechless and frustrated that they would ruin everything that had been showing to this point. They ruined what they were seeking to do in bringing people together. Do you know what that song is saying? Here is the lyrics:
Imagine there's no heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today
Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace
You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Sharing all the world
You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will live as one
Among other things, the song "Imagine" is regarded as an Atheist Anthem. It is obvious that the implication is that you do not need God to no peace. This runs contrary to my DNA which is "No God, No Peace, Know God, Know Peace." This obviously is a ploy to get people to undermine faith and to accept the Communist/Secular Socialism that is challenging the United States today.
