Super Bowl Sunday Sermon: Is God taking the points?

Instead of playing one of the usual TV drinking games, may I humbly suggest that as you watch the big game today, particularly the post-game interviews, you decide that every time a player or coach invokes God as a factor behind their victorious* performance (as if God were somehow interested at all in the outcome of a game, and further was helping one team cheat), instead of taking a drink you’ll text “Haiti” to 90999 to send a $10 donation to the Red Cross (a secular group, despite the name).

After all, if there is a God, there’s no real way to undo the damage caused by people praising him as if he’s one of the good guys, but there is a way to help provide concrete relief for the damage he’s caused.

* Ever notice that the losers never chalk up their defeat to the almighty?

    This blog is evidence that I have a brain (however twisted or defective it may be). If the only evidence of my brain was something written by someone else who heard from someone else about this guy named Brachinus who had a brain, you might begin to have a point.
