Friday Fail: 43% Of America

Because only making fun of people once today wasn’t enough, we bring you the afternoon edition of Friday Fail!

According to a survey conducted by the people over at Poll Position,

“43% said they believed Divine Intervention was at least partly responsible for his success.  Forty-two percent disagreed, and 14% expressed no opinion.”

43%?!  That’s nearly half of you out there! 

I’m all for thinking that a Higher Power will guide you to make good decisions and steer you on the right path if you’re willing to listen and all, but I’m pretty sure that God (or whatever you believe in) isn’t spending time on Sundays ensuring the Broncos win when Tebow’s on the field.

    I have gotten a lot of crap about this. I consider myself a christian but people take this stuff way too far. If a higher power watched over every celebrity and athlete who thanks them, we would all be in trouble. He worked to get there and his arm threw it, not God.

      Exactly.

        I wish to defend the opposition viewpoint. It can at least be argued that Tebow’s belief in God has inspired him and his teammates to work harder, and as such, helped him win the game. Some people might call that divine intervention or at least divine inspiration.

        Personally, I don’t care whether God had anything to do with it or not, I still think if he’s going to thank Jesus he should at least thank his teammates first, THEN Jesus. If I were his teammate after that last press conference, I’d be pissed.
