Wrestling has lost it's mind with the religious nonsense.  You could list literally hundreds of dudes who say something like " I give all the glory to God" during an interview.  Probably 1/2 the coaches too.  Pitiful really.
Christians warned about the Antichrist for years. And when he came, they voted for him.

Which is more pitiful, the person saying it or the person deriding it? 

I think it would be best to let the man say what he wants to say and keep our personal feelings out of the conversation.  Why?  Because there is no need to attack a man's beliefs.  And plus your mother said so (If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all).  Period.

Who's opinion really matters here buck, yours or his?  I don't see why there is this need to berate and laugh at a man's sincerely held beliefs.  Debating religious belief is one thing, laughing and berating is quite another and comes from a completely different ethos.

Kinda indicates an insecurity on buck's behalf about his own belief system. There's that gnawing voice in the back of his head asking... what if there really IS a God?

I like Jesus but he loves me, so it's awkward.

One of the coaches I worked with in Abu Dhabi was training to represent the USA at the paraolympics in kayaking.  Now, it looks like that too has been rescheduled.

Mike is paralyzed from the waist down due to a rugby accident, but would still hop out of his wheelchair and get on the mat with the kids to work suff like wrist control, halfs, and the like.  Freaking awesome guy. Also is a wizz with Microsoft Excel. He ran an entire tournament from that program.
