God loves the Browns?

Unread postby scott » Fri Oct 08, 2010 10:27 am

For the Browns to get their first win of the year required a miracle -

"Kenyon Coleman didn't think he was going to play on Sunday. He healed just in time, thanks to the prayers from teammate Brian Schaefering. Stephanie Storm writes on Ohio.com:

In an effort to help Coleman, fellow defensive lineman Brian Schaefering prayed for him. Then when Coleman went to the Browns' facility Saturday to work out, he felt good enough to run.

''I'm just going to be real,'' Coleman said. ''My teammate prayed for me and that's when it turned around. You can't tell me that didn't happen, because even I didn't think I was going to play. Twenty-four hours ago, I was a scratch. So there's no doubt in my mind [it was a miraculous healing].''

Coleman finished with a sack and two fumble recoveries."

and on top of that, He brought us Peyton Hills -

''I love being a Cleveland Brown,'' said Hillis. ''I think the Lord had his way for sending me here. It's the best thing for me.''

When does God pull the rug out from under us?

The converse of that logic is that God hates the Bengals and wanted them to lose. And that's why I'm always skeptical of people who claim that God did ______ for them. A, if there is a God, he's not supposed to be a concierge. B, there's usually a flip side, in that the good thing that God supposedly did for one person is a bad thing to somebody else.

Then again, a God that hates the Bengals ... I think I can get on board with that.
If it flies, floats, or fornicates, always rent it -- it's cheaper in the long run.

The Hebrews only had to wander 40 years.

1964 was 46 years ago.

Thus, we are the super-chosen people!

Now I understand what Peeker was saying to me in the trade thread below. I see no problem with letting Coleman have his silly superstitions. Whatever gets him into the game, I guess.

This thread is going to turn into a God debate. Atheists versus theists. Let's just move this bad boy to NHB right now.

Then I would hate to see how many Super Bowls they would have won if God actually liked them!

God had some money on the game last week, so it's just natural that he would magically heal Coleman.

Some might claim that's cheating, but if you're God, you get to make your own morality.
It's only progress if you eventually get somewhere.

I think it's because of Epona, the Gallic goddess of fertillity and protector of horses, donkeys, and mules.

Why would God need money?

I hear all the time that Warren Buffet has more money than God. Maybe God's sick of that shit?
