iamdysthymia83:

Can we strip this narcissistic twat of her Gold? Like your fake omnipotent superbeing gives a flying fuck whether you win a circle of metal. 


I was just waiting for someone to demonise her for saying this.
This is a 16 year old kid you are talking about here.  
This is really uncalled for.  While I agree that it is silly to operate under impressions like this (that God cares more about you winning than he does about starvation—this is why I dislike Tim Tebow), what I don’t agree with is vilifying her.  Also, I’m pretty sure the “starving third-world kids” would appreciate it if you would stop using them as a tool to prove a point instead of actually helping them to not starve.
Gabby has worked hard and deserves the Gold medal she won.  She is allowed to be happy.  It doesn’t make her a bad person for thanking God.
