Just when you think the wingnuts couldn’t be any more inane, they up the ante and prove you wrong. A Worldnetdaily reader named David Campbell wrote a letter to WND, which they of course published, claiming that the Denver Broncos lost the Super Bowl because God was punishing them for trading Tim Tebow (Peace Be Upon Him) for Peyton Manning.
God’s hand was all over this Super Bowl.
The book of Daniel, chapter 4, verse 25, says that God rules in the affairs of men and gives the kingdom to whom He will. Luke, chapter 18, verse 7, says that God will avenge His elect when they have been unjustly injured. Consider our latest Super Bowl.
Two years ago the Denver Broncos dismissed Tim Tebow after he had taken them to the playoffs thanks to his miraculous pass that won the game against the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers. Tebow’s exhilarating 80-yard pass in the opening seconds of overtime won the game.
Not long after, the Broncos brought in Peyton Manning and replaced Tim Tebow as No. 1 quarterback. The rumor going ’round was that GM John Elway didn’t like Tebow, didn’t like his Tebow prayer, fans or following and wanted rid of him. Elway didn’t want him as backup quarterback either or on the team at all. Tim Tebow was traded to the New York Jets in March 2012.Peyton Manning was brought in to much fanfare and hoopla. Big salary, big bonus, trumpets blaring.
Fast forward to Super Bowl XLVIII, Feb. 2, 2014: Denver Broncos vs. Seattle Seahawks.
Denver was the favorite, because of Manning. The Seattle quarterback? A kid named Russell Wilson. Christian, small guy, nothing really of note. No big records, no big wins, no big following. The New York Times labeled him forgotten, undersized and underestimated. Kind of like David against Goliath…
Who knew that God would use the Seattle Seahawks and their Christian quarterback to chastise the Denver Broncos and their quarterback, Peyton Manning?
I’m really glad I installed this big fluffy pillow on my desk to avoid concussions when I read something this stupid.
