NY Times Brings US Olympic Athlete to Tears After Attacking Her For Being Too Religious (Video)

The New York Times brought Olympic athlete Lolo Jones to tears after bashing her for being too religious. Jones is the US record holder in women’s hurdles and a vocal Christian.

Lolo Jones sat down with the Today Show after her fourth place run at the Olympics.

NewsBusters reported:

Appearing on Wednesday’s NBC Today, U.S. Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones responded to a New York Times story that trashed her as a “vixen, virgin, victim,” telling co-host Savannah Guthrie: “…it was two days before I competed. And then the fact that it was from a U.S. media….they should be supporting our U.S. Olympic athletes, and instead they just ripped me to shreds….they just tore me apart, it was heartbreaking.”

On the front page of the Times Sunday sports section, Jones was viciously attacked:

In 2009, Jones posed nude for ESPN the Magazine. This year, she appeared on the cover of Outside magazine seeming to wear a bathing suit made of nothing but strategically placed ribbon. At the same time, she has proclaimed herself to be a 30-year-old virgin and a Christian. And oh, by the way, a big fan of Tim Tebow. If there is a box to check off, Jones has checked it. Except for the small part about actually achieving Olympic success as a hurdler.

Beginning to tear up on Wednesday, Jones continued:

“…they need to do their research, called me the Anna Kournikova of track…I’m the American record holder indoors…just because I don’t boast about these things, I don’t think I should be ripped apart by media….it’s just a shame that I have to deal with so much backlash when I’m already so brokenhearted as it is.”

    May this sorry POS of a newspaper go out of business. (I was gonna say rot in hell, then I decided against it…. oh well….)

    NYTimes? They’d prefer to see her – and all women – in burqas.

  • MrGoodWench

    So has Odumdum called her yet ? Or he only calls sl^ts ?

  • Winghunter

    When will we say enough is enough??

    He told us they would hate us, it just means you are doing something right Lolo Jones.

  • Remco Kimber

    “The world will hate you because of Me.”

    The attacks are always and only on Christians. Would this happen to a Muslima, esp, one all decked out in track suit and hajib.

    It’s time to end the gay bullying of America from the progressive chitholes of New York, LA and DC.

  • Stella Baskomb

    The Times is going down because of technological advances they haven’t yet shown the wit to harness.

    This kind of gutter reporting won’t save the paper.

    Would that all Christian athletes choosing to appear on The TODAY Show realized this truth, accept the Spirit of Christ, and let Him do the talking, and there would be no crying: only bold, defiant truth speaking.

    She needs to wake up to that, and quick.

    What Would Ann Barnhardt Do?

  • Adam

    She shouldn’t give much thought to what a dying rag that’s trying and failing to stay relevant has to say.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Imagine, if you will — Barnhardt, instead of an ex-cattle futures trader, is an Olympian, and invited onto this show. Just imagine. Wow. Even if she were allowed to speak for more than 15 seconds before NBC cut to an emergency commercial break, more truth would have been broadcast to the nation than in the last YEAR.

    I wish we could get these comments to her.

    Indeed. She should give thought to it, as it is reality, and then be thankful that writers for the despicable, demonic NYT hate her, as this fact confirms that the words of her Savior are, and always will be TRUE.

    I’ll also admit that dressing to shock or titillate for these photo-ops wasn’t really the wisest decision that a Christian should have made.

    Superfun Rockband Church has its moments — this is one of them. Complete lack of decorum. Someone seriously invested in the totality of Christianity (and who understands the truth therein) should probably have done otherwise.

    This is what is called Consequences for Your Actions.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Even the World will hold Christians to a higher standard.

    And call them “hypocrites” when they don’t meet that standard.

    Be above reproach, I think Paul said.

    I’m sure those photo-ops got her some good money, which was probably needed…

    …but in the end, and in hindsight, they were not such a good idea for someone wishing to be a good emissary for Christ.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Barnhardt, (also a self-professed virgin, mind you) would never have done such a photo-op, not for millions.

    Then again, she isn’t being advised by Superfun Rockband Church.

  • Affenhauer

    Sorry – if the Slimes were to “rip me to shreds” I would know I’m doing something right and wear it like the red badge of courage…

  • Taqiyyotomist

    (They say the same thing, while pretending to preach the Gospel, as do the “Progressives”:


  • Steve Wenick

    The Times cannot countenance anyone who espouses Judeo-Christian values.
    It rubs the secularist Times the wrong way. I’m so glad I cancelled that rag last year.
