Bull riding - including the fact that it's heavily Christian, sorry if that offends some
One person reviewing this video went way over the edge slamming it as though it was nothing but religious propaganda. All I can say to that complaint is that if a person is so offended by Christianity then they had best find another sport or interest because bull riding has more outspoken Christians taking part in it than any other. Yes, they pray, and you can see them. Yes, they wear crosses around their necks and you can see them too. Yes, they mention God (OMG!) even during interviews, where they credit Him for their success. or their talent, or their protection. A prayer for the safety of the riders precedes EVERY bull riding event, and the riders themselves put on informal worship services for themselves and anyone else who wants to attend, at the arena, before some events and if I recall correctly you see those things in this video too.
Christianity is inherently and inextricably part of this sport for many if not most of its participants. If that offends you, find another video, but really, you need to just find another sport. (However, the bull riding documentary "Adrenaline Cowboys", unusual for a bull riding video, somehow manages to omit any mention of God.) By the way, the label of this DVD does state that as it follows the lives of a few bull riders, that it shows their love of family, country, and GOD. Got it?
If Christianity offends a person, then they'd best find another sport with God-free videos. Maybe basketball or football, whose participants regularly get busted for violence or drugs or weapons charges, would prove more tolerable and inoffensive to that other poster. While I was never the most religious person on Earth I have to admit I was quite impressed, and drawn to this sport, by the spirituality of so many of its riders.
