22 April 2016. Brouhaha Over Nick Vujicic in Russia… Tempest in Teapot

00 Order of Honour. Russia. Paralympics recipients. 09.12

These are the people who deserve our respect… NOT this “motivational speaker” and “preacher” from Oz…


At present, there’s a brouhaha in Russia over the “evangelist” and pop motivational speaker Nick Vujicic. Don’t let the name fool you… the guy’s an Aussie and an “Evangelical” “preacher”. This is a good time to note that the disabled aren’t above criticism. They’re just like everybody else… for example, Paralympians aren’t “inspirational”… they worked their ass off just as hard as any other athlete does. Disabled folks are “just plain folks”; the sooner that we all realise that, the better off we’ll all be (don’t you dare criticise ramps or special lifts… these folks deserve the same access to things as we do). The fact that he’s disabled doesn’t give Vujicic (or anyone else) a “Get Out of Jail Free” card. He’s just another one of the Looney Tunes “Evangelical” lot, and we’re bonkers if we attend to his cracked message.

Remember, disabled people ARE people… get your minds right and don’t baby them (but do see to it that you accommodate their physical needs… God wills it)…
