God chose Royals to beat Daniel Murphy and NY Mets in Game 1

After giving all the credit to God and Jesus in reaching the World Series, New York Met Daniel Murphy watches as the Holy Trinity picks the Royals, a team with an openly gay executive, to win Game 1.

In a surprise move, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit collectively chose the Kansas City Royals to beat the New York Mets in Game 1 of the 2015 World Series Tuesday night.

Given the matchup between the two teams, odds were that the Holy Trinity would give the Mets a four-game sweep over the Royals. The Royals have the only publicly out gay-male team executive in Major League Baseball, Matt Schulte, who came out on Outsports after Kansas City's run to the 2014 World Series. The Mets, on the other hand, feature Daniel Murphy, who hit a home run in six consecutive playoff games and who said earlier this year "That was all Jesus" when asked about his recent stellar play.

"Sometimes the blessings come," Murphy said after the Mets advanced to the National League Championship Series. "Jesus is good."

Apparently Jesus wasn't so good to the Mets tonight, as they were unable to hold a ninth inning lead and eventually gave up the winning run to the Royals' loaded bases in the 14th.

Murphy also said earlier this year that he disagrees with the gay lifestyle, making it even more shocking that God would allow a team like the Royals to beat his "Amazin'" disciple.

Even worse, Jesus himself allowed Murphy to blow his final at-bat in the 14th inning -- a pop-fly -- which was the last at-bat the Mets had for the night. Murphy was 2 for 7 at the plate Tuesday.

The Mets certainly aren't out of the running for the World Series championship. They just have to hope God chooses them win four of the next six games, three of which will be played in the den of iniquity better known as New York City.
