Nathan Bond's TART Remarks

Religion: Respect? Ridicule!

Nice one, Jeeesus!

with 12 comments

JC, “the Christ”, son of “God” gave South African middle order batsman Abraham Benjamin (AB) de Villiers a century in Perth today to help the South Africans to a famous, record defying and comprehensive win on Australian soil.

Being presented with his Man of the Match Award, de Villiers recalled a Bible verse he had read the previous night and declared that JC was there for him.

Just how fucking stupid exactly are Christians!?

This Idiot they worship can’t prevent infant deaths in Africa, but has the time and wherewithal to influence the outcome of a cricket test match in Perth. “God” and Son Inc. has not the first inckling of priorities.

Jesus is fucking useless. The doos should not be managing an abandoned long drop in the Richtersveld.

“Worthy of worship”. Purleaze!

  1. Con-tester and Rick, God has no interest in a cricket game and I have never claimed, that God allowed AB to win the game for his team. Just because AB found inspiration from God and chose to thank God, is the point that seems to bother you. When one is in bad form, it is usually all in the mind. The question about Hashim and Sachin is therefore irrelevant and if they found motivation to do well, elsewhere, its not going to bother me and I will never criticize their sauce of motivation. I think it would be very childish, to do such a thing.

  2. Hans

    You tend to dodge questions a lot. Why is that? Your supposedly deep philosophical answers to clear, consice questions don’t really make sense. Maybe it’s because I miss the spiritual connection?

    AB has failed many a times, not because he didn’t have faith but because he was in bad form our because he was outdone by a superior bowler or delivery. That’s cricket.

    I would also like to see your response on Tester’s question on Hashim’s and Sachin’s fantastic records in the middle.

    It’s also interesting to note how batsmen with superior techniques seem to score more runs and hence are more capable to swing games in their team’s favour. It’s definately a coincidence that all these batsmen are firm believers!

    Hans, my friendly request to you is the following: Stop accusing others of being insecure and jealous because they ask ‘in your face’ questions. Please, answer the questions.

  3. But Hans Matthysen, neither your or AB’s god had anything to do with AB’s success. He did it off his own bat, so to speak. That’s the point. AB could just as well have been a Hindu or a Moslem or a Buddhist or a Satanist. He’d have batted just as well on the day. No god scored any runs that day. AB did, no one else. That, once again, is the point. And no amount of religious obfus-babble and doublespeak will change it, whether by you or any other moribund delusional.

    Oh, and what you mistake for jealousy is really just faint amusement coloured by a slight tinge of annoyance at the apparently fathomless depths of inanity that uncritical belief can plumb.

  4. Con-tester, the sauce of one’s positive attitude is no crime. De Villiers helped South Africa to win, with his positive attitude. Ask De Villiers whether, on a previous occasion, he has looked for inspiration from God and failed? I have never claimed that anyone needed premenstrual whatever. You have deemed it upon yourself, to dish up a lot of nonsense, just because others believe in God. You, I take it, only believe in yourself and appear to be jealous, when others do otherwise.

  5. Very interesting, Hans Matthysen. So de Villiers helped SA win because of the faith he had in that an outcome, said faith inspired by a bible verse. But what when he fails? Insufficient faith, maybe? Abd how does your theory account for the batting successes of, say, Hashim Amla or Sachin Tendulkar? Because they need neither your premenstrual god nor her user’s manual to succeed. In fact, they actively avoid those things.

  6. Christians are a whole lot less stupid than you Atheists, as you are so dum, you don’t realise, that AB played with the belief, that they could win. He got that faith from a vers, in the Bible and I thought you guys were supposed to be intelligent. There is nothing wrong in acknowledging, that his triumph was not only out of himself. Of course, you guys think you are so great and wonderful but alas, we are all an insignificant part of a great creation.

  8. O, yes, Con-Tester!

    Reminds me of Virgil on Nisus and Euryalus who died fighting the Trojan cause: fortunati ambo.

    Or not.

  9. God and Son, what a pair. Unbeaten partnership of several billion and still scoring. What a pair.

    That last comment, by the way, is an instance of so-called “Christian charity.”

  10. Great game AB!! What a player!!! All of us back here in South Africa are very proud of you and the boys! All of us hundreds of thousands of Christians (and a few pigheaded Atheists) salute you.

  11. Read me like a book, do ya!?

    Good point – excellent point – about what Hash may think. Didn’t think about that me’self.

    I am going to capitulate and agree with you: For the moment, JC is a helluva guy. Whatever it takes, and I mean whatever – to beat the Aussies.

    Man, I try to write about nothing else but religion, yet I have so many other interests. And test cricket! Heck, it’s just the greatest game! Ball by ball, over by over, spell by spell, session by session… every single ball is a game in itself. The strategy… Oy!

    And to beat them Aussies! By s-i-x w-i-c-k-e-t-s! Chasing down 400! It doesn’t get better.

  12. I was cringing as Abraham was uttering his infamous words. I was also certain that you would have something to say about this. Therefore I was not surprised when I saw this latest addition to your blog.

    I beg to differ with you: I think Jesus is one helluva guy! I mean, I gave us victory. In the process he fucked over the Aussies , but who cares? It just proves that not even God can love those bastards!

    I wonder what Hash thinks about JC’s miraculous intervention. He probably reckons that God en Allah put their personal issues aside and cooperated to make this an unforgettable day for each and every Sarf Efrikan.

    Man, you just can’t keep God out of the game….
