Dear higher power, please save my backside while I do this incredibly stupid and dangerous thing for fame and fortune

So is it just me, or was the tightrope stunt the ultimate example of doing it wrong in terms of faith and prayer?

  • It is his life if he wants to tight rope walk more power to him. If he wants to pray while doing that is his right. I am an Atheist so I really don't care what religious people do or don't do as long as they are not breaking the law or discriminating.

  • I was watching too, he kept on praising Jesus throughout the whole thing, I agree with you NP!

  • I watched it and would have enjoyed it a lot more if he hadn't bothered God the whole way across. It would have been much cooler to wonder what was going through his mind as he made the crossing, instead of listening to him alternately suck up and beg to a higher power until he got to the end part where he started thanking Discovery Channel. LOL!
    Side note: Don't give your kids a pack of chewing gum when they are about to be interviewed on national tv! Poor little stressed out kids were chewing like maniacs. :P

  • This is the first I'm hearing of this. I'm still so out of the loop right now but anyway-sounds like a dumbass to me.
    Wonder what would be said had he fallen. Oh that was gods plan. /sarcasm

    He didn't fall.
