At this point we are used to athletes universally proclaiming themselves "God's gift" to this sport or that sport and then trying to spin that arrogance into humility by attempting to share the glory with God, or saying maybe the creator of the universe deserves a bit more credit. Gee, that's quite a concession.
Of course these OCD-for-God athletes conveniently forget that 98% of their fellow athletes are bible beating Christians just like them, but there can only be one first place finisher, so all the rest of those devout Christians apparently are under God's curse. Indeed, it is hard for athletes to not be superstitious and credit some miraculous force like God, rather than lucky genetics, with their good health and physical prowess.
It is also excusable that a very young person like Gabby, who comes from an underprivileged background would be soaked in religion. Poor people just love religion, or so they think, because it's all they've got, and it takes every bit of what they do scrape together in tithes, often times.
Still, some of the claims she is making, albeit probably just lifted from the preachers he hears every Sunday, can't go completely unchallenged. For example, Gabby claimed "I give all the glory to God." Well, not exactly. I think she will keep the $90 Million in endorsement deals that she is expected to be given. God, in the form of his Earthly representatives at various churches will certainly try to skim as much of the top as they can from her, but God is unlikely to see much of it.
She goes on to mouth boilerplate platitudes that she surely heard from some slick and sleazy minister saying, "It's kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to him and the blessings fall down on me." Well first off, one wonders about the "kind of" qualifier. It's also not clear that "win-win" applies with respect to God, since he is already all-powerful and already has everything. But my question is about the second part. She is claiming that she takes absolutely no credit for things she does with HER OWN BODY, but instead says that GOD, not her, really did the somersault. She then says that by claiming that God, did something that he obviously did not do, that she is blessed with the ability to continue doing somersaults that are really being done by God. Clear as mud? Good, because it gets murkier.
The real problem is that plenty of people give constant "glory" to God all the time and they get no "blessings" at all. In fact, plenty of people pray all the time and they then get terrible diseases, or experience horrific accidents, or a variety of other misfortunes. Gabby's mercenary, quid-pro-quo attitude toward worshipping at God's "glory hole" and havings "blessings fall down" her throat afterward clearly doesn't match reality very closely. My advice to Jesus fanatics like Gabby would be that, "I know Jesus says he loves you, but you should still make him wear a condom".
