The phenomenon also stretches over to entertainment awards shows. It amuses me to no end whenever I hear gangsta rap artists thanking God for their award. While I certainly do not pretend to speak for a higher power, I kind of figure that God doesn't spend His time listening to Dr. Dre muse about bitches and hoes and the joys of smoking chronic and making sure that his victory is assured.
Then you get people like Barbra Streisand who doesn't thank God but thanks the Democratic Party. There's a power struggle for you...the Democrats versus God for the control of awards shows everywhere.
