Chess players are typically not religious, but at the internet chess club there are a few religious flamers who do not hide their devotion and love for Jesus Christ.
In fact, one ICC member has the handle iLoveJesus which leaves no doubt about the level of his fanaticism. You can look up the bio or profile of ICC members by typing in the command Finger. I typed in Finger iLoveJesus and it indicated that he is online 11% of his life which means he is playing or watching chess around 17 hours a week!
I am betting he spends more time playing chess than praying and reading scripture combined.
