PETA, Dungy, and Vick

I was excited to see that Michael Vick has been reinstated to the NFL. I think he can still be a huge asset to any team, so I hope that someone picks him up.  Now, about his crimes…

Of course, I find his past behavior abhorrent. However, he did go to prison for them. He has now been released from prison. Must his crimes haunt him forever?  Apparently some at PETA believe so.  Former Colts head coach Tony Dungy will be serving as Vick’s mentor during this transition period of his life. Dungy is said to be a devout Christian and also participates with prison ministry and youth mentoring programs.  I think if there is a single man who can help Vick, it is Tony Dungy.

I went to college in 1997 and began to follow the career of a football player that played only 2 hours from my high school. Michael Vick took Va Tech’s football program to the place that Coach Beamer was trying to take it. He was a majestic athlete. I only hope that he can get his head on straight and use his God given talents to glorify God instead of himself.  Pray for Tony Dungyand Michael Vick. More than a football career, a man’s soul is at stake.  I hope the haters at PETA can help restore a man to society rather than continually bring up his past.  Encouragement would accomplish more than demolition.

    Thanks for your perspective, it made me rethink my views towards Vick and I agree with your reasoning and suggestions to pray for both Vick and Dungy as he helps mentor him.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Dungy is definitely the man for the job regarding Vick. I’ll pray for both of them as well.
