Jewish Leaders Object to Athletes Pointing to the Sky to Give Glory to God 07/09/2012

Jewish leaders are upset over athletes pointing to the sky after scoring or winning sports events.

Rabbi Rick Jacobs, in his denominational magazine Reform Judaism, Suggests "this is a deep reason for our (Jewish) unease. The God-talk we hear most is hardly worth emulating.

"Watching athletes pointing to the heavens to acknowledge their savior after scoring a touchdown, you'd think God actually cared about which team won.

"While I hope God's presence can be felt in all places, including football stadiums, I find it offensive to reduce the almighty to a football mascot in the sky."

Unfortunately, our pagan generation does not allow many symbols or references to God. Athletes find this a way that has not been outlawed to give God the glory.
