(“This is my God! Nyeah!” – Totally Satirical Dana White)
It’s a generally well known fact on the UFC circuit that Joe Silva is a pretty die hard atheist. He’s the kind of guy that will plant a seed in your brain that will destroy your faith and damn you to hellfire if you give him so much as half the chance. As for Dana White, he’s always stayed quiet on the subject, probably because half the fans and fighters in the sport are on Team Jesus hardcore. But here he is declaring he doesn’t believe in that religion stuff either:
“My kids have asked me just about everything but that. I think my oldest went through a little spell there where he was, like, afraid to die, he thought everything he did he was going to die. I’m like, ‘Relax, son, you’re not going to die, OK? Not now, anyway.’ So he kind of got over that thing and we never really got there. But you know I’m not a religious person at all.”
“I’m not afraid of death and I don’t have to believe we’re going somewhere when we die. But my wife is super (expletive) religious. She handles that business. I think it’s not a bad thing. I don’t believe in religion and I actually think that religion is bad for a lot of reasons. I think it’s the cause of a lot of violence and death and a lot of other things. But I don’t see the problem in telling your children you go to heaven someday. Let them grow up, get older, and figure out what they believe on their own. I don’t cram anything down anybody’s throat.”
“You know what’s going to completely contradict what I just said to you? I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t do this. I can tell you right now, I’ve been in situations in my life where I’m like, ‘Dude, if you get me out of this one … ’ ”
And lo and behold, God did answer Dana White by gifting Chael Sonnen with a bullshit decision over Michael Bisping.
