The only supermarket tabloid I read is the tongue-in-check Weekly World News, and I only rarely read it. When I recently dropped by the Web site for WWN I saw a story that makes me think it seems to be growing more similar to The Onion. In the story entitled “GOD SAYS: ‘LEAVE ME OUT OF IT!'”, WWN Religion Correspondent Joselyn Masters explains that god has decreed that he no longer wishes to be invoked by athletes.
“The Supreme Being told us he regrets that He can no longer devote time to deciding which team is worthy of winning a sporting contest,” said Jeremiah Gottlieb, a spokesman for Unified Voice, an organization that claims to get messages directly from God.
