Jesus Was Intercepted

I enjoyed this last post from Dr. Monkerstein, Jesus Totally Doesn't Love Kurt and Brenda Warner Anymore.

Remember when Kurt Warner gave credit to Jesus for going to the Super Bowl? In case you missed it:



I hate to quibble with theology with Dr. Monkey, but the thing is that Jesus did want Kurt and the Cardinals to win. In fact Jesus took over Kurt's body to give him divine juice. It's just that Jesus' best days are behind him. It is retirement time. Actually, Jesus was never that good at football. He's not bad. It just isn't his main sport. I mean check this play. Jesus was intercepted and he didn't even tackle the evil Steeler on the 100 yard return.

Ouch. Yeah, I think Kurt should be re-evaluating whether he wants Jesus to possess his body any more. I think a deity trade is in the works.

  1. Sad, isn't it? I mean, Jesus has been with Warner a long time, after all. He was probably confused by the crowd noise: you know, the sudden massive explosion of His name from the lips of every Card fan in the place.

    I wonder if they can trade Him for Devi. I hear she has more than one good arm. Looks like they need that.

  2. Even though I was rooting for the Cardinals and Kurt Warner, I seriously object to all the "Jesus and me" blather among professional athletes. God doesn't give a damn who wins a football game. She's got more important things to do. :)

  3. Thanks for the shout out and the link. The baby Jesus told me he was happy you did it.

    Why is this so damn funny?

  5. What's wrong with glorifying Jesus? Warner wasn't saying Jesus was quarterbacking for him, he was giving Him the glory for his accomplishments, win or lose. He glorifies Jesus and you mock him. Way to spread the understanding around.
