More Oblivious Irony From the Religious

They just don't get it. Here's a beautiful example: Kurt Warner, the hyper-pious quarterback for some pro football team, has No. 13 on his jersey. Why?


"A lot of people believe 13 is an unlucky number," Warner said, "but I've kind of embraced it.

"A lot of negative things come with the No. 13. My life is never dictated by superstitions. My faith is first and foremost. If you believe that God's in control, there is no reason to believe in superstitions."

Believing in bad luck is superstition, but thinking that rituals dedicated to a great hairy ju-ju in the sky will let you carry a football across a chalk line in the grass is not? Bwahahahahaha!

Man, I'm glad the magic space man made him lose his big ballgame on Sunday.
