What are the three greatest evils facing America today?
Well, since baseball season is over and the Boston Red Sox have imploded, the answer to that has to be the Nebraska Cornshuckers, the Notre Dame Fighting Evils and the Alabama Crimson Crud. All men and women of goodwill join in denouncing that evil regardless of denominational or political affiliation.
We know that in a fallen world, injustice often prevails and evil prospers. I’m used to that, especially in college football. I never believed the church would go through the Tribulation, but I think most scholars would agree that the last several years when SEC teams have won national championships is likely evidence that we may well be already in that awful time, the Great Tribulation. There is ample evidence that SEC, translated into ancient Sumerian hieroglyphics and viewed numerologically would become 666.
I understand that in evil times evil happens.
But yesterday was just about more than I could bear. Nebraska looked like it was going down in a flurry of justice until a referee stepped in (probably one of Nicolae Carpathia’s lackeys) and threw a flag for a pass interference that did not actually take place. The Cornshuckers won. Then, Notre Dame was down 14 in the 4th and came back to tie. The Pittsburgh kicker had a (slightly more than chipshot) field goal to drive a stake in the heart of evil and schtoinked it wide right. The Fighting Evils won. And then the Crimson Crud was beaten, when LSU (a school which de-emphasizes academics to the point that its fans are unable to spell the word “go”) lays down and lets Alabama have the game.
It was more than I could bear.
Is it possible that Nicolae and his minions are plotting for BCS Armageddon, pitting the Al-oBAMA Crimson Crud against the Notre Dame Fighting Evils for the national championship?
What a day of horror that would be for men and women of goodwill.
