Someone posted this as a wall photo on my Facebook:
Don’t forget to pray today, because God didn’t forget to wake you up this morning.
I’ll say this about Jews and Muslims: They do not proselytize. Even if I was receptive to religion, the last thing I would want is for some righteous fanatic to shove it in my face. I suspect that these are the people who are most repressed. What are they trying to hide?
Tim Tebow finally had a good game last Sunday against the Steelers. I have to admit that he is clutch. I’ll also say this: You could have driven a Mac truck through those Pittsburgh safetys. Even I would have scored with those holes.
Now we’ve got another week of hearing about how Tebow does nothing but win. Until the Patriots send him a one-way ticket to heathen-town.
I love it when Christians get all huffy about being tamped down due to political correctness. There’s only 224 million of them in the U.S. — I think they have a voice.
Would Tebow be a household name if he didn’t interject God into every other sentence? He’s a mediocre quarterback who had one good game and a bunch of lucky ones. America loves sanctimony, and Tebow has it in spades.
Can you imagine the outrage if Tebow was a Muslim and he used his post game interviews to thank Allah? He would be tarred and feathered faster than you could say war on Christmas.
I get nervous around devout people. When I think about devout Christians the first word that comes to mind is intolerance. Intolerance of gays and minorities and a myopic world view. I think about their propensity for supporting capital punishment, as well as their love of guns and their narrow view of civil rights.
That’s religion to me.
