    Default Josh Hamilton "The Lord Told Me I Was Going To Hit That Home Run."

    I'm getting really sick of this bullshit about the lord told me this and helped me do this from athletes. Whether you are a believer or non-believer, this statement from Josh Hamilton just wants to make you go up to him, punch him in the head and tell him to STFU.

    I would tell y’all something, but y’all wouldn’t believe me. The Lord told me it was going to happen before it happened. He said, ”You hadn’t hit a home run in a while. You’re about to right now.”
    Gee, Josh. Did he tell you to swing the bat hard too?

    This is a great article that helps explain how I feel.

    Now besides the fact that you beleive in God, jesus and all that or whether you don't.

    This random wish fulfillment shit has got to stop.

    So he cant thank the lord as a believer, but you can rant on about being a non-believer?

    Kind of a double standard , no?

    I personally think the mass media has been waging war on Religion for a while now. Someone, somewhere is pushing their agenda but whatever. At the end of the day there needs to be a level of respect and tolerance in other people's beliefs. Whether you are a believer or non-believer.

    Dustin Parkes sounds like a sad little man. He just needs to shut the hell up if all he can do is put a guy down for being comfortable in his beliefs. Josh Hamilton did not say anything offensive. Let him be. Parkes basically said "I respect Josh Hamilton for blah, blah, blah but I just hope no one minds me disrespecting him." Right. If you're going to be ballsy enough to write something like this then go all in, otherwise you sound weak. What about Religion is "reasonable" if you don't believe? This article is poorly thought out.

    Im sorry but claiming some psychic insight is definitely up for scrutiny, especially as a public figure.

    He didn't say he was psychic. He said he was given a message that he would hit the homer. For all we know it could have been mere intuition and he interpreted it as a message. Just what are you going to scrutinize? His sanity? 53% of the world believes in the Abrahamic religions. All those scriptures are laced with visions and encounters with spirits, demons, angelic beings, beings from other worlds, God, Lucifer, etc. You're in the minority. Dustin Parkes is in the minority. Guys pray to God all the time before football games and baseball games, that's "ok". Dustin Parkes is basically saying it's a bunch of nonsense but he's ok with guys talking to the wall as long as they don't get anything back. Right.
