It hurts me to see God’s name being used inappropriately in the Daily. A recent SportsMonday article (Forcier the real Golden Tate, 9/14/09) says, “People spell his first name with three letters now (‘G,’ ‘O’ and ‘D’)”. Another example (The Michigan Daily Top 10 Poll, 9/8/09) says of Florida, “Tim Tebow is still God in our books.”

God’s name should not be tossed around irreverently in the Daily, referring to athletes who are mere men. Please find a more appropriate word to describe extremely talented and successful athletes. Remember the Titanic — “No, not even God could sink the Titanic,” was the designer’s boast. We want God’s blessing for the University, not His curse.
