Thanking God Is So Cliche

You heard me… I’m not trying to offend anybody here (Christian or otherwise). I am just baffled by the number of times you hear celebrity’s, athletes, musicians, and every day folks thanking God for their achievements! I mean, it’s okay to believe in a higher power, I think most people do… BUT do you really believe that the reason why you have that fucking Perfect Game bowling trophy gracing your display case is because of God?! Do God-thanking musicians believe that the only reason why they have made it to superstardom is because God put them there?! I mean sure, there’s some who are there by luck or other unknown forces (Ashlee Simpson), but most actually have talent and spent many years honing their craft and training to be where they are. Why does God get all the credit?

I love when I’m watching an award show and a celebrity steps up to the podium to accept the award and deliver their (rehearsed) acceptance speech. They look up to the ceiling with that million dollar twinkle in their eye and declare “first I wanna thank God”. The crowd just eats that shit up! Then (when the crowd settles) they proceed to thank the individuals who they actually should be thanking. But seriously… What does God have to do with an Oscar?!

Why does God get all the credit for all of the good things in life? But as soon as something bad happens (ie – natural disaster or other humanitarian crisis) God is nowhere to be seen or heard. Nothing to do with God. What the fuck is that?! That’s a double standard if I ever heard one!

When good things happen to me I am going to start thanking my socks. Why not?! Makes sense to me!

  1. Makes sense to me too. Just make sure they have holes so they can be holey socks.

    Ooooo, that’s bad.

    What surprises me more than thanking God is assuming he is always on your side. What sports team has ever entered a game without praying for God to be on their side? What general has never done the same thing in war?

    All I have to say is that God must be one flexible dude if he can be on everyone’s side, all the time, even if the sides are diametrically opposed. At least socks only fit one way.

  2. Whenever I see these celebs who have these skanky looking possees following them around, and flaunting bling up the ying(yang), and probably responsible for some 4am shooting at a nightclub … getting on stage and thanking god, I wonder what god they are talking about.

    It’s like the guy who gets up there and makes this big thing about his wife and her support and … meanwhile The Star has photos of him and some model doing the wildthing on a beach in the Bahamas. It’s all for show, c’est vrai?

  3. C’est Oui… For most!! There are, however some katz who actually think that God has something to do with it.

    Mostly the celebs, athletes and people in the public eye that do it, do it for show. Which is annoying and cheezy, but also very ignorant. They will probably go to hell for that no?!

    Oh wait… we are in hell.

  4. How many of them go to church? I bet sweet stuff all. And yet they have the nerve to thank God as though they are some devine being sent to earth to make the world a better place is a joke.

    While on earth did Jesus play basketball or act in a movie or sing in front of screaming hoards of 12 year old girls? NO. So what makes these celebrities think their work is God inspired?

    Incidentally this is as hypocritical as religions blessing war.

    In WWII the Pope blessed Hitler then turned around and blessed Churchill. Is it just me or does anyone see something wrong with that picture? 😉

  5. Wow a lot of Godless people visit this blog! I’m just kidding. I also wonder about the sincerity of those who feel it is necessary to give thanks to God for their accomplishments in a public setting. Though not all the folks who give thanks to God are Christian, many are. And the Bible says:
    “And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hyprocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.” (Matthew 6:5-6)

    So this openness about giving thanks to God in public can be looked at as a very anti-Christian-like behavior if you ask me.

  6. I’m just guessing, but it might have something to do with the fact that they are all rich ego-centric bastards who wish to appear humble. That’s why they thanks Socks.

  7. Hey, maybe if God spent a little less time worrying about winning Oscars for these people and a little more on, say, world hunger, we might start getting somewhere.

  8. I wish for once, someone would just thank themselves for the accomplishment. Or better yet, they should thank Satan, lol. Any musician that gets an award should be thanking the powers from “below”.
