God's influence limited to touchdowns

From Fark:

"God did not cause this to happen," says Minister of Colorado church. God's influence limited to touchdowns, passing math quizzes, and the occasional Crusade


It's always confused me how believers can give god credit when good things happen, but always refuse to blame god when bad things happen. I've also never understood why people think that god actually cares about the minutiae of their lives, aren't the supposed to be humble? Do you really think your sports team winning is so important to god that he'll "make" them win over, say, feeding some of the thousands of children dying of starvation every minute?

It would just be nice if someone had the courage to give god blame and praise equally.

  • Hadn't you noticed that when bad things happen, religionists blame secularist tolerance of sexual promiscuity, abortion, homosexuality, etc?

    It used to be that God was angry about the activities themselves, but God has progressed to anger at societal tolerance.

    Rather odd for a God who sent his Son (Himself, if you are Eastern Orthodox) to preach tolerance.

    It all boils down to the childish level of moral reasoning -- reward and punishment -- practiced by religionists. I think that reality has too many shades of gray for black-white "thinkers". God loves them because they love God, and God hates anyone whom they hate. Convenient, what?

  • It is quite convenient, the truly funny thing is how none of them can see it, how they think their interpretation is the only one, is the "truth".
