On Monday, doctors announced that Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin has been transferred from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center to a hospital in Buffalo, NY. This comes just one week after he suffered a cardiac episode during a Monday night game.
What are critics of religion thinking about this national response to the collapse of NFL player Damar Hamling? According to Swaim, “They will consider the whole pray-for-Damar episode a mass expression of some irrational atavistic impulse. ... Let the fans ‘pray’ if that’s what gives them comfort, but it changes nothing.”
In one sense, I agree with them.
