Aaron Rodgers: God Doesn’t Care About the Outcome of a Football Game

Aaron Rodgers went on his weekly radio segment today to discuss the Packers epic loss to Seattle. During the interview, host Jason Wilde touched on the topic of God rooting for one specific team, given Russell Wilson’s recent comments.

Jason Wilde: Melissa says: I always find it a little off-putting when athletes, actors, and anybody says, “This is what God wanted” or “I want to thank God for helping us win today” — anything along those lines when a game or award is won. I’m paraphrasing here, but you get the gist. Personally, with all the chaos in the world, I’m not sure God really cares about the outcome of a game or an awards show. What do you think of statements such as these? You’ve obviously got your faith. Does what happens on Sunday impact your relationship with God or your faith at all?

Aaron Rodgers: I agree with her. I don’t think God cares a whole lot about the outcome. He cares about the people involved, but I don’t think he’s a big football fan.

So apparently, God may not have caused Russell Wilson to throw 4 picks in an attempt to increase the overall drama of Seattle’s win. Yet we’ll never know, because chances are…God isn’t going to unveil his feelings on football games anytime soon.
