WND Promotes Reader's Claim That God Intervened in Super Bowl
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Yes, WorldNetDaily really did devote an entire article to a readers bizarre theory that God intervened in the Super Bowl to let the Denver Broncos get crushed by the Seattle Seahawks as punishment for the Broncos cutting Tim Tebow:

“God’s hand was all over this Super Bowl,” says David Campbell, a WND reader from Myrtle Beach, S.C., who explained his view of the divine intervention in a letter to the editor.

“The book of Daniel, chapter 4, verse 25, says that God rules in the affairs of men and gives the kingdom to whom He will. Luke, chapter 18, verse 7, says that God will avenge His elect when they have been unjustly injured.”

[...]

“Denver was the favorite, because of Manning. The Seattle quarterback? A kid named Russell Wilson. Christian, small guy, nothing really of note. No big records, no big wins, no big following. The New York Times labeled him forgotten, undersized and underestimated. Kind of like David against Goliath.”

He explained that in the days preceding the Super Bowl, there was a warning of another big snowstorm heading toward the new Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

“Looked like it was going to hit right about game time,” he wrote. “As the big day approached it was reported that there were 18,000 tickets still available. Who wanted to be stuck in a snowstorm in an open-air stadium?”

“Who knew that God would use the Seattle Seahawks and their Christian quarterback to chastise the Denver Broncos and their quarterback, Peyton Manning?” Campbell continued.

[...]

In an interview with WND, Campbell again stressed he feels the events of the game were directed by God.

“I do believe God directly intervened to avenge his servant, Tim Tebow, just as He does for the rest of His children when we are wronged undeservedly,” he said. “I believe it was against the Denver Broncos but only God knows if He meant it personally against any individual – probably John Elway – if the rumors of his hostility toward Tim and his ‘Tebowing prayer’ were true.”

Campbell says he just knew God would do something great for Tebow “because, like us, he is a child of the King.”

This being WND, where merely asserting something is proof itself as long as that assertion hews to WND's right-wing agenda, article author Joe Kovacs can't be bothered to consult any actual experts on Christianity to offer a view on the plausibility of the reader's theory.
