Religion Olympics
I recon they should start a religion olympics . Put one religion against the other , muslims , christians, hindus , bhuddasts , satanists etc in the final events . Heats are done sect against sect , eg , christian heats ; catholic , baptist , prodestent , prespertyian , morman , seven dayers etc , so you end up with 1 rep from each sect in a the final. The winner of the heats final competes against the muslim rep , the hindu rep etc.
Some events could be ,
Sledging , pass the parcel , wife bashing , back stabbing , nicest clothes , verse recall [ john 2 chapter 4 , whatever ] , best prayer , lamb roast cookoff , most believable lie teller and of course the blue ribbon events : 100 mtr , 200 mtr , 400 mtr chase and kill [ all contestents have a weapon eccept the ones being chased ].
Any suggestions for more events and venues [ I like the colosseum ] has a nice christian feel about it.

The Religious Roots of the Olympics
September 18, 2000 | ZENIT
[link to www.beliefnet.com]

"... Pierre de Coubertin was the creator of the modern Olympic Games and founder of the International Olympic Committee. Given the boom in sports at the end of the 19th century, he publicly proposed in 1892 the revival of the Olympic Games, with the double objective of sports competition and peaceful gathering of all nations.

In fact, de Coubertin popularized the inspiration he received from others' speeches. For example, credit for the official Olympic motto, Citius, Altius, Fortius ("Faster, Higher, Stronger") goes to a Catholic: Dominican Father Henri Didon, prefect of the Arcueil Parisian College, who coined it in an address delivered March 7, 1891, to the members of a sports association. Father Didon might well have encouraged the idea of reviving the Olympics. When Didon was a seminarian in Grenoble, his superiors organized "Olympic games" among the students.

De Coubertin was born New Year's Day 1863 in Le Havre, of a very pious mother (who hoped he would be a priest) and a Jansenist father who was known for his sacred paintings.

After making a pilgrimage to Rome at age 6, young Pierre was educated by the Jesuits, whose "liberalism" he appreciated ("None of them ever tried to attract me to the Society").

In fact, de Coubertin said that he "imbibed Hellenism" from one of the Jesuits
.

Later, the baron met Canon Charles Kingsley in England. Kingsley was the founder of the Muscular Christians, a movement that shunned the traditional "contempt for the body" of Christian education and propounded athletics as a means to reinforce morality and the life of faith.

De Coubertin, however, went even further, to the point of promoting a kind of pagan "religion" of the body, according to the Italian newspaper Avvenire in its September 17 issue.

De Coubertin's religion soon took on a secular and immanent character. The restoration of the myth of Olympia was not only a program of education through sport or a pacifist manifesto for international coexistence, but also a return to pagan "religion" of the body. The athlete becomes a hero, a god.

"De Coubertin conceived the Olympic structure as a new civil religion, with its symbols, traditions, rites and ceremonies," one historian wrote. ..."
