I plan on doing a spanking related post later on today, but I came across this article about Tebow and am sharing it all over the place. :) I admit that being a Gators fan I’m biased, but this article mimics so many of the things I’ve been saying to people for years. In my opinion the hate is based on ZERO logic.
“Is it that he’s unapologetically religious? In a time when we can’t escape headlines about terrorism, domestic abuse and violence by and against police, directing our venom at a man for being devoted to his faith makes about as much sense as a drunk yodeler. Besides, Tebow didn’t exactly invent the practice of thanking Jesus in post-game interviews”
“Do we laugh because he’s developed a reputation for being Mother Teresa in cleats? True, he helps orphans and sick kids and has built medical facilities and homes for the needy. Would we appreciate him more if he were less compassionate, if he saw misfortune in the world and looked the other way?”
“Are we seriously belittling Tebow now for chasing a new dream? It’s as if this generation has declared war on positive thinking, and Tebow is Public Enemy No. 1.
We love inspiring films about sports underdogs like “Rocky” or “Rudy,” but heaven forbid if someone tries to live out the real thing here in 2016.”
“The laughing about Tebow probably won’t end anytime soon. And maybe that says more about us than about him.
The choice between respecting Tebow for chasing his dreams and joining the gang of Twitter bullies who rip him for doing so should be an easy one.
