Default Raptors more Powerful than Religion?

Have you visited/went to the ACC more than a Church/Mosque/Synagogue?

Do you follow the words of Colangelo more than the words of God/Jesus or whatever religious figure that you follow?

Do you spend more time reading game recaps/stats/articles than stories of a holy book?

Do you know more facts about the players on the Raptors than religious figures?

You talk/argue passionately more about the Raptors than religion?

Do you pray for the Raptors success?

You are a member of a Raptors forum, but are you a member of a Religion forum?

If you answered yes on every question, except the last one, than welcome to the 'The Church of Latter-day Raptors' and the new found religion of Rapatology.

If you answered yes to any of those questions you are in great need of help. Just to clarify. To me Jesus is not reduced to a "religious figure." He's the One and Only. Religious figures cannot save.

Actually, you answered your own question right there. If you pray for the Raptors to win (something i have a done in the past myself) you clearly concede that religion / your God has is more powerful than the Raptors (in your mind). not that there is anything wrong with that.

What do you care? Leave it be - promises to be fun for a change...

Or would you rather talk about how Raptors suck?

The Raptors are a drug, and not a very good one - too many bad trips. But highly addictive...
