  • Well sure. That's why the bad shit happens in the world. Their god is so busy picking successful sports teams that he doesn't have time to make sure 6 and 7 year old kids don't get slaughtered at school.

  • I'm the Abrahamic god's secretary. Let me take a look at his/her calendar and I'll get back to you.

    Also, that's one of the scariest polls ever

  • Yes, because he gives a shit about a football game. People are so twisted.

  • Yep to bad for the abused, starving, helpless followers... Their prayers must not be public enough to get answered. Football prayers answered is great publicity for god didn't you know. I hope the ravens loose btw. Not because of ray Lewis but because they knocked my team out :(

  • I don't even know who's playing LOL!
    But, I think it's hillarious the my ex won't be able to really watch the game because he'll have the girls.
    Hmmmm....I guess God's on my side.

  • Interesting. I think if you are a believer God goes where ever you do (actually He is everywhere but hopefully you get my drift)
    I suppose God could be interested in a sporting event. I somehow doubt that he would throw the game to make sure His team wone, if He had one.

    Personally Irather doubt it. I would never make that declaration without absolute proof.

  • Well, the Dallas Cowboys always say their stadium has an open roof so God can watch His team play, right? *Grin.* Too bad they didn't make it this year.

    I should hope any god would have better things to do than worry about the Super Bowl.

  • too bad they didnt ask "does prayer for a sports team make God more likely to let them win?"...i dunno if i could handle seeing the numbers who say "yes".
