I think coralling all the believers into one place is a good thing, it makes them so much easier to find in case of rapture.

Something I've never 'got' is the symbiotic connection between football (American football, of course) and fundamental Christianity in this country. Exactly when did every football coach and player in the U.S. decide to become a bible-beater? It's very puzzling. For instance, the founder of the Promisekeepers, the Christian men's movement, is the former head coach for the University of Colorado football team. Of course, a lot of his player's got arrested for rape and other 'un-christian' activity, so they couldn't have been too religious.
I used to see those Lord's Gym t-shirts in college (it was just a concept for a t-shirt back then, not an actual gym). Usually being worn by obnoxious football players. So the whole idea seems kind of retarded to me but whatever makes people happy. . ."I had once talked to Billy Conn, the boxer, about professionals versus amateurs - specifically street fighters. One had always heard rumors of champions being taken out by back-alley fighters. Conn was scornful. "Aw, it's like hitting a girl," he said. "They're nothing."

Maybe there is a correlation between football and bible-beaters......
Cause everybody knows that the best football being played on the college level is in the SEC which is the bible belt.......:D"Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration." -A. Lincoln
