By God or By Chance, Same Thing?

cth: Casting lots was part of Jewish tradition, wasn’t it?

That's what the Wikipedia article on Matthias's selection also said.

It's like a coin toss when choices are evenly qualified, whether you call it leaving it up to God or to chance, it's generally considered fair…

…except when the coin toss goes against an African American skater on the U.S. Olympic team, then it's racist.
