Bobby Knight gets religion

Bobby Knight gets religion

Bobby Knight was interviewed by Scott Simon on Morning Edition Saturday about his new book “The Power of Negative Thinking.” Simon asked, “Why didn’t you have pregame prayers?”

KNIGHT: Well, I’ll tell you what. I watched the guy that hits a home run and he comes across the plate and he points skyward, like thanking for the help from the almighty to hit the home run. And as he does that, I say to myself God screwed the pitcher. And I don’t know how else you look at it. You know, I’ve always felt that, you know, the almighty has a lot of things to do other than help my basketball team.

This fits quite well with tomorrow’s gospel about why God “let” the tower fall on people

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
