I watched a documentary on this young man a couple of months ago, I cried and laughted all the way through it...he is an amazing young man and the message he sends out is very powerful.

No matter how much we think we are hard done by there is and always will be those who are going through much worse than we ever will.

One of the many things I took from this young man was strength, and be as happy as you can with what you have.

He's probably a lovable character but to me he's no different than a long line of other "disadvantaged" characters I was forced to listen to at church and sunday schools - how the Christians and Catholics alike LOVE those folks! You simply CANNOT attack them.

For me it's enough to know that he came here to Hong Kong to give talks to some of the most powerful and homophobic churches; I know which side he's on and it's not mind.

Oh yea, can't you see the correlation?  If he speaks at one of the most powerful and homophobic churches in Hong Kong he is clearly against homosexuality.  They must have cut out the part in this video when he was inspiring the young girls to look within to find their true beauty; what he was really trying to say was if your lesbian go out back shoot yourself.

You have to read between the arms and legs that don't exist, I suppose. ::)

Naw, personally speaking I tend to be an open-minded individual , I don't see how these type affiliations could be considered causal for what you say..  For all we know he may beat his wife, people with beards have a tendency to do so, and the reason I say this is because my step father had a beard. ;)

Nice.. I am glad you're open-minded about some guys like him speaking in churches and help them to rise fund that also have a history of saying HIV is some sort of god's wrath. I mean.. if he manages to inspire, who cares?

That's one way to look at it.  You know, you are allowed an opinion.  Next time he's in HK might I suggest you run up to the little fellow and kick him where it hurts, it's obvious the guy can't fight.

Are you saying he's homophobic  :o???

Just to fill you in a bit - Nick Vujicic was here giving "inspirational" talks, aka recruit seminars, paid for by Evangelical Free Church of China. The head preacher - his name is So Wing-chi (or Patrick So) - of EFCC is closely linked to their counterparts like Family Research Council (James Dobson). So is the most outspoken christianist preacher in this town against homosexuality - and in a recent debate here on expanding the coverage of protection against domestic violence to gay couples he went on record saying that such laws would "pave way to the recognition of same sex relationship", thereby would give rise to more HIV cases and "increase social costs to look after", er, us.

In several sermons he added more color to his theory by saying that any laws that would help to give same sex relationship proper status would encourage young males to be homosexuals' "sex slaves".

His talks here were so popular that they gave them in stadiums - and according to EFCC thousands of those young innocent looking boys and girls who were moved to tears by him signed up.

You make the connection..

Who says about kicking him? I think this says more about you.. perhaps influences from your step dad?

Oi vey.  The guy is handicapped and he doesn't let that bother him.  Fantastic.  I don't think he is actually recruiting people into the homophobic army, but if he's christian and he condones that sort of behavior it's sort of a secondary thing.

I don't think HIS agenda is to make everyone homophobic but I don't know the man personally so who knows.

Edited to add: Personally every time I look at him I think of those jokes that went:

What do you call a guy with no arms and legs laying at your front door?  Ans.  Mat

What do you call a guy with no arms and legs floating in the ocean?  Ans.  Bob

in the clips of his talks, he tries to impart that people should live a more positive life, love themselves, don't limit their potential, and can improve their lives by doing whatever they put their mind too. ;)

It's a shame that in Komnaes area, he spoke through the venue of some church, which K says has convulted ties to Dobson, and an anti-homosexual agenda. In America, Austraila and Canada (in those clips and from info in on his website), he spoke at prisons and schools.

I don't actually think he's pro-crime because he used the venue of those jails to speak :D, which would be the same guilt by association that K is suggesting. And yes, I did see that other link that shows that the guy does consider himself religious/christian; but not all religious people are anti-homosexual. that's just a stereotype (some gay people are even religious) and isn't supported by any anti-homosexual propoganda on his websites that I can find.

that's the Simpsons episode "Moe 'N' a Lisa". that scene is where Homer by acting a bit campy, mocks Moe for writing poetry, and falls out the window and down the fire escape. Doh! Doh! Doh!

boy, this thread is going off-track even more than others I've seen lately.  :D
and it's a shame since the armless/legless man was so inspirational.

here's a much more relevant video.

kinda a day in the life sort of vid. the dude swims, cooks breakfast (but leaves the shells in the scrambled eggs LOL), types 43 words a minute, and lives in a two story house.

(be forwarned: there is some text, perhaps Spanish (I took French and I'm just a dumb American; but there are upsidedown ? marks) but no speaking parts. I don't think it says anything anti-homosexual; but I'll have to leave it up to someone else to translate. :D )

  I laughed through the whole thing, I hope that was the intention... you have to admit it's a bit funny.  He should have Alice in Chains Man in a Box for the song though.

Yeah, somehow it did. I just pointed out that Nick Vujicic was hired and paid for to speak by the most homophobic church in this town, which preacher has openly linked HIV to god's wrath and how giving gays legal protection would cause most AIDS and increase "social costs". If that's not relevant information in a forum like this one I don't know where else. How did it end up with a suggestion to use violence and run up to kick him is beyond me..

No, I didn't take that comment seriously at all. It's never occurred to me to kick him (though I would happily kick the ass of that preacher Patrick So who hired him to come here) or kiss him or anything. It is your suggestion. Not mind.

He also follows his pro life stance with the following:

In the Third World Society, if anyone is born with a birth defect they are seen as cursed and are killed or abandoned. It is amazing to see the receptiveness of crowds at evangelistic outreaches in these countries and to witness changes in hearts and minds all around the world.



I can understand why a man with only a chicken wing would feel this way.

I'm still looking for the views against homosexuality though.  The whole moral vs. god existence thing you quoted in that thread was written by someone else.  I'll read more after I finish this damn psych paper I'm working on.

Then you should read your Bible, Peanut. :) Gimpy Nick believes in that the Bible is the inerrant word of God.

1. WE BELIEVE the Scripture, both Old and New Testament, is the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of humankind, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21; Hebrews 4:12; Psalm 19:7-8; Matthew 5:17-18)

(Linkage)

Pretty much guarantees he's not gonna be a huge fan of teh butt-secks. I'd wager that he's some breed of creationist as well. Most likely Young Earth.

But I digress.

Shauny's contention is that this fellow appears as an inspirational speaker/preacher at notoriously homophobic Christian churches in Hong Kong. Those sorts of churches vet their speakers for doctrinal correctness before they let them loose on a congregation.

Moreover Shaun makes the point that any attempt to point out the bigotry and narrow-mindedness that characters like Zippy Nick represent is often drowned out. People only see an upbeat cripple whizzing about on his wheely board mouthing hollow platitudes and giving prefabricated "You Can Do Anything You Put Your Mind To!" speeches to halls filled with wide eyed youth.

So sure, I can see why people find this fellow inspiring. On the surface he's appears to be a great guy and worth admiration. Closer inspection, however, reveals something less attractive about him.

And for what it's worth, I think the fucker is Australian. :)

To be honest if religeon tickles the fancy of someone great for them, but after 10 (wasted) years in an assemblies of god church, i tend to put most of them in the same boat as bigots and hypocrytes. And yes i know it's not true for everyone.

I have to admit at first his message in the video did seem inspirational, but then again religeon really makes me mad.

edited to add: not sure if it's religeon or just certain people who mess the origianal idea up, but suspect the latter
