Serena Williams deviates from her staunch Jehovah Witness ‘no celebrations’ and takes her daughter out to Disneyland for fun

Though she is a staunch Jehovah’s Witness follower who never celebrates events, Serena Williams does not want her daughter Olympia Jr to miss out in life.

This is a fallacious premise .... reading some of her statements she actually says SHE IS NOT, a "staunch Jehovah's Witness".  (massive paraphrase ...)

I get the impression she is not even baptized ...  ( anyone REALLY know?)

She agrees with some stuff ... and not others ... sorta like eating parts of a fish.

This is rather old, nonetheless I tried to do it justice when it first appeared: Few things cause more distress in the world of celebrities than a neglected birthday celebration. Yet Serena Willi

I like this what you wrote. Intresting.

You know John, sometimes people really do have their own opinion.

She says that she was raised a Witness but did not make it her own.

She says that now she wants to.

She says that when she does she is going to track you down, old boy, and wallop the stuffing out of you at the sport of your choice, so long as it is tennis.

Do you know what tennis is?

Um, when i was in the Children's Home we had a table tennis set up, which was great fun.

The girls school next to my senior school  played 'lawn' tennis, and when our children were younger we would go to the park and try to hit a ball back n forth. 

So i have a basic idea of what tennis is from a fun viewpoint. But no interest in it from a competitive / profesional viewpoint.

My theory has always been that games are for playing not watching. i think it's called exercise :).

Okay. Good answer.

I thought that you might get sanctimonious about it, but you didn’t. 

Following sport can be a religion in itself. It’s amazing the degree to which people get into it.

It is even like when the Witness organization tries to sell everyone that kicking around the soccer ball at a picnic is the equivalent of being on the school sports team, and the kids roll their eyes because they don’t think it’s that way at all. In this regard, they should look to you.

Thank you. It's obvious that adults and children need exercise to the extent that they are physically capable and it should be fun. 

When the fun turns into 'sport' and it gets competitive then it can cause problems. 

I suppose a professional sports person / athlete etc, that truly wants to serve God properly, would have to approach God in prayer and think it through with a good conscience. But who am i to say or judge. It's just that I've tended to see 'professional sport' as a bit tacky and commercial, big business like. Example, buying and selling football team players etc.

The Reddit co-founder and Williams are focused on their daughter's future rather than spending on lavish parties. The couple previously skipped Olympia's first birthday celebration in 2018. 

Williams earlier explained that she and Ohanian are Jehovah's Witnesses and that their family does not practice throwing celebrations such as Christmas, Easter, and other important holidays.
