Was Vick born again? Christians make the call

You know what I think about Michael Vick’s claim that executing poorly performing pitbulls helped him find Jesus. (A lot of people learned my opinion after Deadspin linked to my cynicism.) But if you’re wondering what other Christians think, check out this poll at ChristianityToday.com.

So far, 61 percent of the 2,250 respondents are “skeptical, but hopeful that this experience will bring him to Jesus.” Thirteen percent say “Great! I’m so happy he’s become a Christian,” and 12 percent aren’t impressed because “‘I found Jesus’ is the new ‘I’m going to rehab’ (that’s for you Britney and Paris). And 9 percent are flat-out “disgusted that he’d try to play the ‘God card.’”
