'The true religion of America': Sports
As streaming has rocked the television industry, one media mogul has gone against the trend by spending big on live broadcast rights. In a recently released interview, he revealed the key advice from News Corp. (NWS) Founder Rupert Murdoch by way of Oracle (ORCL) Chairman Larry Ellison that led him to do it.

The gist: Go all in on sports.“‘It's the biggest thing ever,’” Allen recalls Murdoch having said to Ellison. “‘It's the true religion of America: sports. That's what we love, and we are religious about it. And it's a great business. It's a phenomenal business. And it will continue to be a great business.’” ...

I just did a quick search "Sermons by Topic" here at SA and did not find sports as a listing. I checked 'football' and did not see it either. Exercise is listed as a topic.
I guess this means that sports is a 'sacred cow' that preachers will not touch.
I hope it also means they are concentrating on what James calls, 'true religion' which is caring for widows, and I would call your attention to 1 Timothy 5 where the Bible gives us clear guidelines for them.

WRONG The world is polytheistic including post Christian america

gods are:

1) the love of money and the fear of losing it.

2) The lies of Darwin and other fake science and the fear of those who impose it.

3) Indifference

Interesting topic. I believe the true religion of the unsaved in America is wealth, fame and living lives of ease.

Scripture is more against the above being valid, than for them.

Perhaps this is why so many games are played on Sundays.

Absolutely true. Sports play on men's emotions and drive for competition and success, which is how God wired us. But we take what is good and do what is not good with the gift...story of mankind in a nutshell.
