Football is the world’s biggest sport. The fans are in the billions and they are fanatical. I don’t get it.
Aside the fact that I don’t get what the whole hoopla is about, I also think it is a huge commercial scam and a waste of money. But this post is not about footballers or their fans. I’m sorry to use you as an example, but you’re the best.
Despite my disdain with the whole football mania, and the fact that I think far too many people are wasting their time, money and tears over a simple sport… I have never gate crashed a sports game to shout “Boooo!!!” I have never been to a Football forum to try to talk sense into these “less enlightened” suckers for a game. I’ve never been part of a rally to challenge the rights of football fans to convene at bars on Sundays!
I mean, why would I??? It really is not that big a deal that people are so passionate for a game. I can see that it unites families and friends, communities and countries too. Though I don’t think footballers deserve to earn millions (let alone billions) of dollars a year, I think the whole commercial thing has given people jobs, hope and joy. I can see the good and the bad, and though I think the whole fanfare can be much reduced, it doesn’t ever cause me to plague the lives of the fanatics! I also have never come across such football haters!
But in the realm of religion… and especially Christianity, the fanatics are as common as the haters!!! It’s the weirdest thing! They say there is no God, that we are wasting our lives, we are filling people with false hope… the works! They can hardly admit a good thing that Christianity has done and still does in this world.
They rise up early to plague Christian forums, hangouts and blogs, trying to destroy their witness and get some converts to their side of unbelief. They even devote whole blogs to disproving the existence of God. Like seriously?! If they truly believed God was as irrelevant as Santa, I doubt they would get as much delight bashing Him and His believers as they do. I think their passionate protest is telling more about what they believe and who they are running from.
If you ask me, I think the atheist doth protest too much…
