    I'm pretty sure God hates you for being a jackass all the time.

    Allah wanted Islam to win. I'm just glad everyone made it out not blown up.

    When I was in high school, we prayed to to God, not Allah or Muhammad, before each game. As a spectator, before it was outlawed, the invocation mentioned God, not Allah or Muhammad. When my players ask if they can gather alone pregame, they pray the Lord's Prayer, to God, not Muhammad.

    It doesn't sound so ridiculous to me.

    So God is only God to English speaking people? The Spanish Catholics are screwed for worshiping Dios. Poor Arabs and their Allah.

    Allah means god in arabic. Jesus didn't use the word god he probably used a word that sounded like allah.

    Ok. That's fine and dandy. The point is, I posted this to illustrate that a sport can bring people to God in some way, shape, or form.

    I mentioned Allah and Muhammad to point out that the prayers were to God, by name, and not to Allah or Muhammad, so it is not as ridculous as he makes it sound,

    What if God wanted one team to win but Buddah wanted the other team to win?

    There is a pecking order:

    God (tm) > Jesus

    Jesus > Solomon

    Soloman > Mohammad

    Mohammad > Buddha

    Buddha > "That Weird Indian Elephant chick

    "Weird Indian Elephant Chick" > Joseph Smith

    Joseph Smith > Sun Myung Moon


    Really GOD (tm) and JC are the only two you really need to worry about, those two are immortal.

    Yes.... but supposedly Buddha was accused of cheating last year and Jesus Christ flipped the table over on Buddha.... just turned a nice thing into a really negative event... I doubt they do it this season.

    You guys know Aaron is a pretty religious guy, right? I have heard he has slightly changed, but my sister was really good friends with him and other Packers players (her best friend's husband was a Packer). Aaron was was very involved with Young Life.

    I am the only one in my family who hasn't personally met him, but I did get the opportunity to speak to him on the phone when he stayed at my house. It happened to be the night of the NFL draft the summer before Favre left. They drafted a quarterback and I poked him about it. :p

    Anyways, I heard this on the radio yesterday and people were acting like Aaron is an atheist or something. I think his comment is spot on. God doesn't care about a game. He cares about the people playing the game, but could care less about the outcome of the game.

    I'm not a Muslim but I don't think Muslims pray to Mohammed.

    I'm not really clear on what you point is but it sounds like you are saying that sports can bring people to a Judeo-Christian God. I think this shows more about what religion and culture you grew up in rather than some universal. I'm pretty sure that Muslim players pray to their idea of an Islamic God and not a Christian idea.
