Fundamentalist: U.S. Hasn't Been Attacked Since 9/11 Because Of Sports
The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer knows why we haven't been attacked since 9/11! At many professional sporting events, during a lull in the action, a singer is trotted out for a dumb rendition of "God Bless America." This is a prayer, you see, and God answers those things:
The singing of “God Bless America” has been a staple since 9/11 in virtually every major league baseball stadium, and, inspired by baseball’s example, is now a consistent part of pregame festivities at NFL games and NBA games, as well as college football and basketball games.
The significance here is that “God Bless America” is not just a collection of words, not just a song, not just a memorable melody. What is significant here is that “God Bless America” is a prayer.
Remarkably, we have established the practice of converting every major league stadium, every NFL stadium, and every NBA arena into a temporary cathedral in which hundreds of thousands of Americans every week pray to God and ask him to watch over this land.
