Olympic Athletes Take Their Faith to the Games
Places to worship and pray
Providing chapels for everyone is no easy assignment, either. Many religions do not allow inter-faith worship. Devout Lutherans believe it is a sin to pray in a service in which any deity other than Almighty God is addressed in prayer. Some Jehovah’s Witness athletes refuse to even enter a worship place other than a Kingdom Hall. Trying to accommodate such varied rules, the International Olympic Committee required London to build appropriate, separate facilities for five faiths – Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists – but organizers are also providing chapels for Sikhs, Zoroastrians, Jains and Baha’is.
