27% of Americans say God influences sporting events

quote:

With millions of Americans set to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, a new survey finds more than a quarter of Americans believe that God "plays a role in determining which team wins" at sports events.

The survey by the Public Religion Research Institute also found that more than half of Americans believe "God rewards athletes who have faith with good health and success."

Asked if they believe God plays a role in who wins, 27% of Americans said yes. Poll results varied among regions and religions: 36% said yes in the South, 28% in the Midwest, 20% in the Northeast and 15% in the West.

Among nonwhite Christians and white evangelicals, 40% and 38% said yes, respectively; 29% of Catholics and 19% of white mainline Protestants also responded that God plays a role.

A. Religious thread
B. Anyone not a Deist or an atheist should have answered in the positive.

probably not

anyone who believes in a deity that does not interfere with free will could also answer no

Does one team pray harder or something? What's the logic of God deciding an outcome, does he gamble?

I'm just telling you what the response would be to your question.

I think that my posting history on this and similar topics speaks for itself.

If God determines sports outcomes, He really hates Wake Forest.

What's the difference in "white evangelicals" and "white mainline protestants"?
