    Figure skating queen brings Catholics pride

    http://www.ucanews.com/2010/03/02/fi...for-catholics/
    Kim was baptized in May 2008, along with her mother. Since then, she has always worn a rosary ring and made the sign of the cross when competing.

    As A Catholic...

    As a Catholic, I find this blog topic completely inappropriate. Also, the comment preceding mine.
    A person's religion is private and this topic should be removed from the forum.

    The picture of Yuna is so beautiful . She looks like an angel
    Is Stellar her baptized name? She really shines like the brightest guiding 'STAR' .
    God bless Yuna now and days ahead

    i see nothing wrong with quoting the article, I never knew that and as a Catholic find it interesting. I also think Desert road tries to be cute/funny and I have no problem with sarcasm or honesty.

    lighten up Kyla, its only a figureskating forum.

    As a Catholic here also...

    I'm glad you posted it! I always wondered if Yuna was Catholic cause I started noticing that she was doing the sign of the cross.

    I think this is fine as long as we don't start getting into religion arguments. It's already a hassle dealing with just figure skating ones at times.

    Also her religion isn't really that private if you have the Cardinal of the Archdiocese of Seoul calling to congratulate her.

    I'm fine with whatever religion she chooses to follow (not like I'd be a factor in her decision anyway), as long as she's happy and it brings her comfort and solace.

    I just hope we don't have to call her "Stella Kim". I prefer "Yuna Kim", as suits her better.

    Well, as a protestant, I have no problem of her made the sign of the cross or whatever in competition, because they are private moments and she needs them. But this topic really should be staying inside Yuna thread.

    Uh............

    Desert Road, confusion is your perpetual state of mind.

    Bijoux, since you like honesty, I am sure you don't object to my comment.

    Look, we all have different faiths and we need to respect them and the fact that they are private. I just think this can get dicey and we need to be respectful of people's privacy on a blog. Yes, she's a public figure but for me this is one step too far.

    Indeed. Someone might make a personal attack.

    Why so much negativity?
    And why isn't your religion remaining private?
