    Exclusive: Jeremy Lin says faith in God triggered 'Lin-sanity'

    Appears god has changed sports. Oh well....it is the sport de jour

    Kinda fascinates me that with nearly a billion humans, mostly children suffering from mal nutrition and starving to death that god uses his miracles to promote sports in the U S.

    I've been retired for 18 years so not much though we do send something to UNICEF as we are able.

    The point is why the phuck would god perform miracles for millionaire athletes and not do something for those innocent starving children. The real point is that there is no invisible man in the sky and only the brainwashed and those who are ready for the funny farm believe there is.

    So, basically, you're doing jack shit. Thought so. There is a saying "judge not, lest ye be judged". Try that.

    A vast amount. And it goes towards helping 8 million of America's poorest citizens. What do you do for them?

    LOL...the Catholic church has been hoarding and storing fine art, jewels, gold, etc. for 1700 years. If they would just sell all their "worldly treasures" and set up a trust the hungry in this world could be fed indefinitely. Don't hold your breath.

    And the point is that there should be no suffering in the world and world peace?

    We have a world in which a human beings make choices, some good, some bad. Some have no choice because of natural calamities such as droughts and earthquakes; others have choices that effect others such as women who have children and cannot care for them and then there are the politicians. There are also the unforeseen economic events. But it comes back to one thing, GOD.

    Was it GOD's intent to make a perfect world?

    In the beginning there was perfection ... or was there? The downfall for us all was the failure to obey the law, the law given to Adam and Eve. If God made perfection there would have been no law breaking because we would not have been susceptible to the serpent. Therefore life becomes a trial ... a test to see who is faithful and worthy of entering a perfect world, Heaven. The suffering we endure here in this cruel world helps to define us, to test our faith, and to make us better people.

    Showing your utter ignorance again, huh?

    The Church does not own those treasures. It has taken up the very vital role of 'keeper of the history of mankind'. It collects priceless (not just in a monetary value) works that would have otherwise disappeared into private collections, or been destroyed. It pays for the restoration, storage and safekeeping of millions of pieces from around the world. It lends those pieces - fee of charge - to museums around the world... so that the world has access to it's history.

    It has, for centuries, been the 'keeper of the history of mankind'. It meets all the costs itself, it asks nothing from anyone for doing it.

    So, in short, you are suggesting that it sell what it does not own, and that which should be protected, and maintained, for future generations.... why? Because you have deemed it to be so.

    On the day that you do anywhere close to what the Church does for the world's poor and most vulnerable, then maybe you'll have a point. Until then, mind your own fucking business. You greedy, selfish, twit.
