america. so when did you first notice a change? >> oh, well, you know, i noticed a change back when i was the mayor of our city and i sanctioned and promoted and participated in our nativity scene that i would allow. >> what year was that? >> that was in the early 2,000s was when i first started hearing from people saying you are not going to be able to keep this up madam mayor. somebody is going to sue you for allowing god to be recognized in the public square. >> so early 2,000s it started of to come in. >> in my life, yes. >> me too. >> yeah. >> pretty much 10 years ago. and then it reached its apex when some major corporations ordered their employees not to say merry christmas. do you remember that? >> um-huh. yes. >> i think you have some examples in your book about that. >> i do yes. >> maybe you don't want to shop at these places and all of a sudden magically like santa they changed. >> well, what i recognized in the book is those businesses that are bold enough to not allow that
double standard to be applied and their employees can say what they want to say. and they can freely express their acknowledgment of jesus being the reasonable for the season at christmas time and i give shoutouts and kudos to those businesses because customers will stick with them then. >> most of them are doing that now. you will you don't have any beef about hope holidays, do you? >> absolutely not nor santa claus or anything else. >> when you start to say you can't say merry christmas and you can't from the karesh and you can't have christmas carols bye choirs ♪ have a holly jolly christmas ♪ and as you walk down the street ♪ say hello ♪ to friends you know ♪ and everyone you meet ♪ >> now it's the double standard that's applied and that's not what i'm going to sit down and accept and i don't think the majority of americans will because that war on christmas is the tip of the sphere that really translates into a war on religion just freedom. that's a much bigger problem that we will be facing if we

days ago. >> so carolla, you must roux the day you ever came on the factor. you are now the devil in hollywood. you are evil, carolla evil caro. >> i have to run serpentine every time i leave my house just because we're brought up in the same breath, bill. >> you and me, o'reilly and carolla. >> it's funny, though, people are like, oh, he's hitler. i'm like, he's more like stalin or mousselina. >> hitler light. >> yes. >> it's so absurd, saying what i want in america is for adults to be responsible parents, and all of a sudden, they dimonize you as some wind of right-wing cook. how crazy are these people? >> i don't know. it's insane that feeding you kids, taking care of your kids, being fiscally responsible for your kids, has turned into some
kind of extreme right-wing platform or plank in our platform. it's bizarre. pretty soon it's going to be ch chewing your food and exhaling is a right-wing lunatic thought. i don't get it. it's elementary. it's been going on as long as we have been going on and existed all around us in nature. birds take care of their chicks. you know, whales take care of their cubs. that's the way it is. >> all right, now let me explain it to you, carolla. by implication, by implication, if you say parents must be responsible and care for their children, then you are implying, you are implying, carolla, that the people who don't do that are bad. and you can't make judgments about that. the left doesn't want that. because if you'ren irresponsible parent, it's not your fault. it's society's fault.
somehow, america didn't give the abandoned father the right training, so how can he be hild responsible? that's why you're getting hammered. you're not sympathetic to those who abandon their children. >> i think whales have calves, by the way, i may have called them cubs. and yes, the left doesn't want any judgment except for the left will judge the crap out of me for judging other people and expecting them to take care of their own kids. i don't tell them to take care of my kids or my nephews, just their own kids. and imagine the utopia we would be living in if people would just adopt that. >> certainly, social problems would diminish if parenting was encouraged the way you are encouraging it. now, did people do this to your face, or is it all sniping like that guy on variety called you some kind of name? do they come up to you personally and say insulting stuff, or is it behind the back?
>> some of it is in my face. some of it is, you know, now everyone's on twitter. now everyone's writing a snarky blog. and mostly, it comes in that form. as far as to my face, it's almost never to my face because i don't get invited to any parties anymore thanks to you, bill. >> why do you want to do that? i'll invite you to a party. you play volley bail, you know, but those are not the kind of parties you like to go to. >> no. >> adam carolla, everybody. there he is. >> and carolla's new book "president me, the america in my head" is a best seller. congratulations. >> coming up, gabby douglas believes her strong faith in god helped her stay on a positive track. how did you get involved with a belief in god at such a young age? >> i have always been exposed to jesus and the bible. >> right back with it.

16-year-old gabby douglas from virginia won two olympic gold medals in gymnastics. we're happy because her personality was warm and made her a personal star, but she's had a very difficult home situation to overcome. she writes about it in a book called "grace, gold, and glory, my leap of faith." reading the book, i felt sorry for you. i really did. 14-year-old girl, no dad around. mom trying to raise you and three siblings. >> yes. >> all of a sudden, you have to egoto iowa to compete. that's really tough. did you see it that way when it was happening? >> i knew i had to accomplish a dream. if i wanted to accomplish it, i had to sacrifice a lot more. >> were you crying at night and stuff? >> i definitely was. my mom left. she stayed with me for a week in iowa, and i bawled for a few
months, actually. it was my decision, so i had to come to a conclusion saying it was my decision. >> you had enough discipline even though it was an unhappy time. you compete, you get in the groove, and you go over to london. and you got all the best in the world there. did you think you were going to win? >> i was confident in my performances. i didn't think about winning. i thought about how great, and what i can do on that given day. >> were you nervous? >> very nervous. >> how did you cope with that? >> i was trained to deal under the pressure, and coach chow, one of my coaches, he had me do pressure tests, which means there's a lot of action going in the gym, and they try to distract me, so when i go to competition, i can cruise right on. >> when you won the two golds, right? you win. >> yes. >> now you're world famous. everybody knows you. how did your world change? >> it was kind of like an overnight celebrity.
gabrielle douglas on top, and it's been a whirlwind. everything has been a blast. >> final question is, you write a lot about your faith. how did you get involved with a belief in god at such a young age? >> i have always been exposed to jesus and the bible and my mom always exposed me and the rest of my siblings to that. i love reading the bible, the stories. >> what does it do for you? >> it plays a big role in my life. it does me so good. god has blessed me over the past years and kept me safe. now it's all up to him because he gave me this amazing god-given talent. >> do you ever get mad at god and say why don't i have two parents and why did i have to leave home? >> no, it's all about the perspective. i don't have two parents, but i have two gold medals. you have to turn the upside down rightside up. you always have the look at the positive things. >> what do you want to do now? what's next?
>> 2016. >> so you're going to go to the olympics again? >> yes. >> try to improve on yourself again? >> yes. >> that will take you four years of pretty much training and what you did. what are you going to do differently in your life now that you're kind of independent? you can be independent by then? >> well, i want to get my driver's license, so that's my thing. and i'm going to start heading back to the gym and just train and i want to gain more. i want to go to international assignments and more world championships and i think it would be very cool if i attended two olympic games. >> all right, education? >> yes. >> what do you want to do there? >> i do want to go to college, but i haven't figured out what i want to do yet. still, i'm taking it one step at a time, one day at a time. >> all right. gabrielle, thanks for coming in. the book is "grace, gold, and glory." >> thank you. >> thanks for watching us. please remember that the spin stops right here.
