This is an actual quote I read today from the head coach of the University of Michigan football team, Jim Harbaugh. Give it a quick read and then we'll dissect it, shall we?
"Even now, as we all go through what we're going through with COVID-19, I see people more concerned about others. More prayerful. As I said, God has virtually stopped the world from spinning. I don't think it's coincidence – my personal feeling, living a faith-based life, this is a message or this is something that should be a time where we grow on our faith for reverence and respect for God. You see people taking more of a view of sanctity of life. And I hope that can continue. I hope that continues and not just in this time of crisis or pandemic.
Ok. Someone please tell me, is it even remotely possible that it's not completely lost on Mr. Harbaugh that he's ACTUALLY suggesting (he says it's 'no coincidence') that his God killed, or at least 'allowed' to be killed, over 100,000 people worldwide (SO FAR) with this virus, of which the huge majority are from Christian nations, so that the rest of us that are fortunate enough to not be killed, would stop and give MORE respect to God and have a greater appreciation for the 'sanctity' of life!?!?!? And notice I said people here; not ants, or weeds, or flowers, or rabid bats or anything else. PEOPLE that were ALIVE, with families and friends and jobs and responsibilities and lives, all DEAD so we can appreciate the sanctity of LIFE! Wow!
And wouldn't it follow, and make a lot more sense, that if this virus is how God actually goes about making His point on such matters, that we would be far more inclined to revere and respect him much LESS, not more?!? Can I get an amen?
And the worst part is, we live in a society where he'll probably get thousands and thousands of 'likes' of one form or another, or pats on the back like what he said was so great or profound or meaningful, and he'll probably get no pushback whatsoever. Lord help us! No, wait.......on second thought, please don't!
