Why religion and sport should never meet. . .

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

I found this through the Guardian's excellent weekly YouTube sports videos round up, and I just wanted to share it quickly as it's very funny. It's Kurt Warner, quarterback for the NFL team Arizona Cardinals, who just made it the upcoming Superbowl (sorry, almost lost myself too for a moment there), trying to draw a picture of God, for some reason. It almost makes you understand why Islam forbids depictions of its holy figures. It's not because they're offensive, it's just because you'd get sports stars drawing rubbish pictures of Mohammad:

What is that odd structure that Kurt carefully drew behind God/Jesus/whoever's head? Wings? Bedknobs?

I thought they were enormous ears. Makes sense if he can hear everything everyone says (and thinks)...

Ya- I live in PHX, AZ and I'm a huge Cardinals fan although we have had many rough seasons... ok ok - every single season except this year.. and I hate it every time he thanks God for winning a game.

What a douchebag. Apparently God liked the Cards more than Eagles?? Come on Kurt - you're a college educated man. Quit being a complete dick.
