Jameis Winston and the Undue Witch-Hunt.
"Do you think that Jameis Winston should still be playing after all that he has done?"
This is a question that many are asking online. I have never seen a young man so hated by a simple minority who slept on the wrong side of their beds, but the simple majority who slept on the right side of their beds are failing to bring them back. There is even a website keeping track of his mea culpas or peccadilloes. This is what is wrong with many people: hypocrisy that destroys greatness. Let me state some of the things that the people want him to be crucified. He was accused of rape, he stole crap legs, he also used profanities, he dressed out in pads even though suspended, and he has been accused of having sold his autographs by signing things for money which is against the NCAA rules. I will treat this question sociologically, logically and biblically.
There is one thing people should know. Everyone is not going to like you, even if you are the most beautiful, strongest or richest person on earth. It is not a surprise that some do not like the young man. The problem is that in him many people pour their hate for Florida State University (FSU). It is a form of vicarious victimization. He is the scapegoat for FSU. They think that by chopping Jameis Winston down, they are chopping down the FSU program. If there was a hidden camera to expose the lives of all his critics, very few will be standing. They will all pass under the guillotine. You see, this world is a phony place. If the enemies of FSU heard that Jameis Winston has made 3 touchdowns, they will say that he is making them with weak teams or he just got lucky, but if they heard that another quarterback did the same thing, they will say that he is a genius and a super kid. That is just the way human beings are; they always root for an underdog and create a reason not to like someone who is better than them. It is the spirit of jealousy and envy
Logically, I am befuddled how we always want to destroy another person. I just cannot believe how people are happy to see another person fall or suffer. What do they gain? Most people who consider him Caligula have never met him in person. Look, most of what that young man has done are typical things that many young people do. The issue is how much we are quick to accept rape once someone has been accused. We easily forget that many people have accused others for rape and years later, they were exonerated. In addition, mere accusations are not tantamount to a conviction, and even conviction, people could be convicted falsely. Jamies Winston does not need to rape any girl. In his status and popularity, women run to him, and they beg him to make love to them just so they can carry the pride that they had trysts with him. That is the truth!
Religiously, the bible cautions us against rumors (Prov 18:13). No one was there between Jameis Winston and the girl. They were there only the two of them. Nowadays, people can do anything to grasp money. Do they want guys to wire their homes and apartments just to expose them? Secondly, the Bible says that we should forgive 70 x 7 times(Mt 18:22). Whatever the young man did; it is time to forgive and move on. What are crab legs, for God’s sake? What is that profanity that his accusers do not use themselves? Why are people so hypocritical? Nowadays, you talk to someone, but you do not know where they stand. It is a behavior like this that made the Arizona Superintendent of Schools to take a pseudonym rather than use his real name to call his constituents: “lazy pigs” because you saw the reaction when people knew who he was. Inherently, there was nothing wrong with what he said because he is entitled to an opinion. Why can't human beings be what they profess to be? Why do we live these double lives? I believe this is one of the causes why mental illness is instead increasing, despite our advancement in medicine. The mind cannot deal with you and your doppelganger. If you cannot beat FSU in the football field, you should at least not try to beat her through Jameis Winston. People should leave the young man alone!
However, my advice to Jameis Winston is that he must remember that he is a public figure, so his actions are being scrutinized. He has a great future and should not muddle it up with tomfoolery. He should apply himself to his craft and be more mindful that his off the field antics seem to speak louder than his actions on the field because a drop of poisoned water and a drop of good water do not have the same impact. A great man is not one who sleeps with all the women he sees, but it is one who is faithful and loving to the only woman he has chosen to spend his whole life with. Beware of the Delilahs, for through them your enemies will make you blind. Every man must direct his manhood for his urine to find the toilet, else he will splatter it all over, and that is unsanitary. A great man is one with many platonic friends, but he has only one erotic friend to whom he pledges his allegiance and commitment till the end of the world. Therefore, stay focus young man and use your talents before your foolishness gives your enemies the blade to chop off you head.
Until then, I wish him well.
