No Arms, No Legs, No Olympics

No Arms, No LegsI must say that I applaud the I.A.A.F.’s decision to not allow the Olympics to be turned into a carnival freakshow.  This is good news for sports fans.

Track and field’s world governing body ruled on Monday that Oscar Pistorius, a double-amputee sprinter from South Africa, is not be eligible to compete in Olympic qualifying events.

And who wants to watch folks without arms and legs competing against normal people?  Besides, those who think it would be fair don’t have a leg to stand on.

The International Association of Athletics Federations explained in a statement that, after an independent scientific study, it deemed Pistorius’s state-of-the-art carbon fiber prosthetics “should be considered as technical aids which give him an advantage over other athletes not using them.”

Amputee PoolExactly.  I say let the free market decide.  If there’s a demand for a freakshow circus style Olympics where deformed people and steroid and PCP users are allowed to compete, someone will obviously start such a competition up.  There is the Special Olympics, after all.

It’s also true that if deformed people are allowed in the normal Olympics, people will be repulsed and will shut off their sets.  It’s a wise business decision to exclude mutants and drug users from competition.  Besides, these people should be pitied, not exploited.

I will not be served if I enter a restaurant without conforming to their rules: no shirt, no shoes, no service.  Therefore it is reasonable to require that athletes also maintain minimal standards in order to compete.  No arms, no legs, no Olympics.  I’m glad the Olympics has decided to put its foot down regarding this issue.

What say you?

  2. Pistorius wants to compete in the Olympics then let him do fairly without any fancy hi-tech devices. He should get rid of the crazy bionic stuff and just use the body Jesus gave him. Leave it to a moonbat to chop of a limp off to get an advantage. Pistorius is trying to cheat and he doesn’t have a foot stand on, I applaud the Olympic committee for calling him on it.

    I’m not seeing a lot of pity coming from you. I wonder how the handicapped community would react to you calling them a “freakshow?”

  9. maybe Brownback should become an Olympic athlete as well (judging by the picture on the left upper side of this blog the geezer has no arms, no legs, no penis, no feet…….just a torso, a head and an american flag)

  11. Well I think that if they can pass the qualifying events, they should certainly be allowed to compete. Without, of course, any mechanical aids. Likewise, no entrant may use a motorcycle or a helocopter in the 40 yard dash.

    These people need to compete without their God-taken-away limbs. Maybe they should practice rolling until they get fast enough to get past the qualifiers….

  12. Nice to see you care about people involved in accidents. Huh, thought you were supposed to love all God’s creations?

    OH MY GOD LET’S GET RID OF THE NIGRAS TOO BECAUSE THEY FRIGHTEN ME.

  13. I don’t think this should be a task for the free market, Psycheout. The Bible tells us to keep the disabled from coming in our church. The disabled need to go through reformation camps or be healed by God (God does heal amputees!) before they can even be seen in public, since all areas of public life should be based on the church.

    yes well, true enough except that God must have done this to them for a reason hmm? He does not act without wisdom and maybe this is his way of marking those people we should not be seen with.

  15. “The Bible tells us to keep the disabled from coming in our church.”
    Are you talking about this passage, perchance?
    The LORD said to Moses, “Say to Aaron: ‘For the generations to come none of your descendants who has a defect may come near to offer the food of his God. No man who has any defect may come near: no man who is blind or lame, disfigured or deformed; no man with a crippled foot or hand, or who is hunchbacked or dwarfed, or who has any eye defect, or who has festering or running sores or damaged testicles. No descendant of Aaron the priest who has any defect is to come near to present the offerings made to the LORD by fire. He has a defect; he must not come near to offer the food of his God. He may eat the most holy food of his God, as well as the holy food; yet because of his defect, he must not go near the curtain or approach the altar, and so desecrate my sanctuary. I am the LORD, who makes them holy.
    I don’t see anything about a church, just about not being able to offer sacrifices (a pagan practice). Sounds like your hatin’ fails again, Bobby.

  20. KKKorKKKer the KKKoward would lose a bicycle race against a man without legs (cause Bob is a mouth hero only, he is too fat and lazy to do anything else but yammering behind his computer to look important), hence he has decided to hate all handicapped people as well (a weird way of expanding one’s horizons)

  22. Well, Christians are called Christians because of Jesus Christ. Read his testament, i.e. the New Testament. If you think the message of Jesus is inferior to the rants in the old testament (your quote; or “an eye for an eye”, than we must take pity on you.

    Your mind is defected, but in the spirit of Jesus Christ, we will love you anyway.

  23. And I agree: This was a troll’s post and there are many trolls speaking put in this thread.

    We must love the trolls, because they are part of God’s creation. But it’s better not to feed them, for their own good.

    And my God forgives your God for creating a bunch of half-witted fundamentalist twats.

    BJ, this is God. Shut the where-you-are-headed up. Also, your name sounds like a sexual action.

    P.S.: B4B, you’re right. I hate the retards. If you don’t know them, look in a mirror. Peace out, maturnal fornicators! :3

  28. As you can see, God is pretty hip, which is why his true followers persevere in the face of your outrageous ignorance, B4B

  30. I agree with comment #24 wholeheartedly. When you see a disabled person, you should be thinking “There, but for the grace of God, go I.” Something horrible could happen to you just as easily (I hope not–I’d prefer for you to see the light of God’s Wisdom while still being in one piece). People are always saying a debilitating accident could never happen to them, and then it does.
