Who tries to force Holmes opinion on the other. I don't think it's dramatically correct Biggio and I'm -- Due atheists try to force their opinion on people that are religious -- do religious people try to force their opinion on atheists more. As for me out -- you do whatever you want this between you and good Lloyd but when it comes to praying for football. Should you really prayed for who wins the game and I said I didn't pray but I think during an NFC championship game. Minus at a prepared to between the saints and vikings. I think our next guest was there at the game and be interesting to see if if he did a little praying archbishop Gregory -- joins us now always a pleasure good morning archbishop the morning army earlier today pretty good where you at the NFC championship game. -- note. In passing yet again against the vikings when essentially the vikings. No I judges wondered if -- that game you know tied after four quarters and an overtime I think everybody was brand. -- what went when it comes to it that I mean is it appropriate to play for something and pray for something rather like yeah. A win in sports your team wins a resource comes across the line first and attacks that comes in like preying on -- way into the casino and I've told friends I don't think -- in this we are. On my own. Well I think the first -- darkness. Important things to worry about like the wars in the world in the violence and so -- but at. I think it's I think it's appropriate to treaties. Like -- it was a distance thing so are pretty that they will be -- That they will be able to use their god given talents to the best of their ability. And that they will be able to shoot good sportsmanship. And and I think that's a figure prayer now I'm sure I'm quite sure that all of us. All of us that times will say god please what the -- please look at when I think god -- OK you know that's. But I think it's I don't think takes sides in Asia for pocket. God says that's fine but it mostly geared for the people witness those. All right -- and that. And so collected through appropriate support and get a ride which in it's not like convincing. But I think it's -- -- -- -- to their safety to pretty good sportsmanship and to pray that they use to the best of their ability their argument now. -- -- -- -- is is this if you were to pray that they use the best of their god given talent and ability to cover the three points probably not the best they -- The lord please. Please let it cover this three points and able to rent for. Do you have a favorite before we let you don't know Super Bowl Sunday. Miller really don't know I really don't. Of course that the real feel a little them. A gunshot with with Seattle because Tuesday -- -- that it didn't leave us with a good season. But other than that I really don't have. Favorite. Which brings up another thing and I guess I'm -- got a concession publicly here for a guy like me who shouldn't be illicitly but but. Here's one Seattle lose in the worst sort of ways of that -- and me instead I mean it's revenge archbishop I know is do do that no well -- so -- so portable game. That's okay I'm not gonna help that. No I don't think so critical part of the game and equities and hasn't on health a lot of different reasons and typically isn't that they're not -- if they -- vision appreciated time. Don't go -- -- today and I.
