My favorite comment on Jesus and sports came from a comedian who, just once, wanted to see a quarterback blame Jesus for losing a blowout in the Superbowl.

"Yeah. We were winning. Until Jesus made me fumble the ball. He hates our team."

Why am I not surprised about the Weaver Family? Religion is fine and all, but it seems that those who deem themselves "Christian" are in fact, 90% of the time, the Antithesis of just that. It's hypocrisy at it's finest.

mamaloo

Hate. And their making my stomach burn like the fiery pits of hell, where they must hail from, every time they appear on my screen.

Pete

You must admit, however, that watching the Weavers tearfully trying to navigate their way through the emotional minefield of Talladega Speedway was quite a treat.

Frank

With regards to the last 3rd place tearful finish, my recommendation to them is "Just Quit,,,, PLEASE!"

Tyrel

I hate the Weaver family. They are terrible people considering their claim to be such good christians and leading a Christian life. If they are leading a true christian life I wonder what the bible has to say about smack taliking everyone else, and wishing the worst on everyone.

Vanessa

The Weavers are horrible people, considering how Christian they claim to be. If the Weaver's behaviour represents what Christianity is all about, I want nothing to do with that religion. And the Weavers wonder why nobody likes them.

Charles

The Weavers do not represnt Christianity no matter what they say. As a Christain myself I find the Weavers claiming to be Christians turns my stomach. I understand not wanting to make alliances. But come on how soon they forget that they start all of this rudeness back in one of the very first shows this season when they totally ingorded another family at the airport. They could have just as easialy told them they didn't want to share information.

Kayla

I strongly dislike that family. Everytime they say "Oh please god! Let us find (insert noun)" I scream "JESUS HATES YOU!!" at the TV. I am a christian, but that involves not judging people. (can I make an exception just this once??)

The only thing I want is that daughter to PUT ON A PAIR OF PANTS!! OMG! get rid of those damn short-shorts!!

ps...i thought americans at least knew about their own country?? they've never heard anything about Utah? Except that it's got Mormons living there??

Don

Although I agree the Weavers are their own worst enemy I feel bad for Rolly who at 14 seems to be trying hard to play the game & have a good time. I worry about how all this negative talk about his family will effect him after the game has ended & he returns home to his friends.

Donna

This post cracked me up. Thanks.

Atteiros

here's my thought on the Weavers...they should stop claiming to be christians or being the only nice family in the race. I don't know why they're wondering why nobody likes them in race (duhh!!). After watching the last episode I won't be surprised if that family won't be allowed to enter Utah...or anywhere else.

alysse

haha i h8 em but i love em. im glad they ddnt gt eliminated, they were sooo entertaining

Ed Brown

This is some site. I've never heard so many people professing to know what Christianity is or is not that use the word hate. The Weaver family entered a grueling race with a middle aged woman, two out of shape girls and a boy. Did any of you try something like that. Rolly Weaver is a young hero who carried the ball for the family like a man. People do get nasty under such tremendous pressure. They were up against 4 young athletes who actually used a block against them twice. The Lintzes should be ashamed that the Weavers led them for most of the race. Ed Brown Verdun Quebece.

i adore rolly weaver he is the hottest boy i have ever met

tornay

you people are so rude rolly weaver just
likes dat top it doesnt matter if he wears it alot

Leigh-Anne Williams

I have great respect for the Weavers! I would just like to make one little comment in what seems to be the "We HATE THE WEAVERS CAMPAIGN". Did everybody watch the show. Did you not see that the Weavers were plotted against at every turn. They were ALSO made fun of and called names. I remember in the penultimate episode when one the the Linz brothers made fun of the Rebecca Weaver, calling her Rolly Poly. The Weavers were yielded TWICE. They were ignored and isolated. Excuse them for not being hippocrates like the others who clearly were 'keeping their friends close and their enemies closer'. They refused to blend in with the others who so easily would have stabbed each other in the back. They stood alone. Nobody likes people who stand out, right Tod? Also, people have alot to say about their Christianity. Reality check, Christians are human beings. They're fallible, they make mistakes, they're not perfect. Only when we see Christ will we be like Him. Nice one Tod, using this forum to spew you're hate for the Jesus Christ/and subsequently somebosy you "don't" believe.What a waste of energy. One thing will remain Tod, and it's remained two thousand years ago, and will remain long after we're gone: just cause you don't believe in Him, doesn't change the fact that he exists. Don't wait till it's too late to find that out. To the WEAVERS: Well done, you played a great game under the TOUGHEST circumsatnces I've ever seen
