25% of Americans Believe God Decides Football Games
Majorities of all religious groups disagree that God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event, but there are differences in intensity. Roughly 4-in-10 minority Christians (40%) and white evangelical Protestants (38%) agree that God does play a role in the outcome of a sporting event, compared to less than 3-in-10 (29%) Catholics, less than 1-in-5 (19%) white mainline Protestants, and approximately 1-in-10 (12%) religiously unaffiliated Americans.
More than one-third (36%) of Americans who live in the South agree that God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event, compared to nearly 3-in-10 (28%) Americans who live in the Midwest, 1-in-5 (20%) Americans who live in the Northeast, and 15% of Americans who live in the West.
Eh, why not? Maybe God has the Broncos this Sunday and he'll owe Peter a new robe if Peyton can't cover the spread. After a relatively scant few years on earth, I've decided I have no clue what a diety cares about. Maybe gambling is entertaining for God, because existing forever is a bit of a drag.
Also, that number has to be closer to 80% for Cowboys fans. They put a GOD HOLE IN TEXAS STADIUM.
