Last weekend, Megan Rapinoe, a big name in the world of women’s professional soccer — is there really such a thing, given the fact that most people would rather have a hole drilled in their head than watch soccer? — once again got her name in the spotlight after she got what she called a “f***ed up” injury that forced her out of her final game before retirement earlier than she expected, citing the incident as proof God does not exist.
Well, given that she’s a lesbian and a diehard LGBTQ activist that has stood up for all kinds of sexual deviancy and the promotion of children being forced into indoctrination in the classroom, perhaps the injury is actually proof God DOES exist and is still in the business of delivering a little hard-nosed discipline when it’s called for?
Then again, maybe I’m just a religious bigot.
However, during the same weekend, C.J. Stroud, a rookie in the NFL who plays quarterback for the Houston Texans and is doing a bang up job, took a different route, proclaiming his faith in God publicly after his team defeated the Cincinnati Bengals, according to TheBlaze.
POWERFUL: #Texans QB C.J. Stroud talks about his faith and prayers helps him succeed on the field.

This isn’t the first time Stroud has made comments connected to his faith. It seems Stroud takes his duty to proclaim the goodness, mercy, and hope of God to the world very seriously, as the more attention he earns from his skills on the field, the louder he heaps praise on his Creator.
Here’s more from TheBlaze:
The Houston Chronicle noted that Stroud “has a rapidly growing platform on social media, where he identifies as a ‘follower of Christ’ and shares a Book of Proverbs passage that says, ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.'” The paper added that Stroud has attracted more than 550,000 Instagram followers.
Even after the Texans lost to the Indianapolis Colts in September, Stroud said there’s something much bigger than football happening in his life, “and if I have to use football for my purpose — to spread the gospel and the life of Jesus Christ — then I’ll do that. And I think that’s what God wants.”

The contrast between Rapinoe and Stroud was not at all lost on social media users. One individual said that they would rather hear Stroud give his testimony than listen “the vapid and narcissistic Megan Rapinoe.”
“Rapinoe … and other woketards … have ruined professional sports with their kneeling and whining,” another user commented on social media. “This football quarterback C.J. Stroud thanks God for his miraculous wins and gives the glory to God. I’d watch football again if we had more humble players like this.”
“C.J. Stroud testified the power of God that through him, he was able to overcome struggles. Then we heard Megan Rapinoe say and laugh that her injury was proof of no God,” another commenter stated. “C.J. Stroud is the example today of what the Rev. Dr. [Martin Luther] King preached about.”

I, too, would rather hear from Stroud than Rapinoe, who strikes me as a typical bitter left-winger who wants as much attention and validation as possible to make her feel important.
