    What are his SAT scores?



    tebow - 890 (new 2400 scoring system)

    te'o - 1540 (same 2400 system) - sounds great until you realize this was equal to a 1050 on the old 1600 system



    ryan fitzpatrick - 1580 on the 1600

    Oh Lord, please stop your followers from sticking it in my face, they obviously don't get it....and place a curse the talking heads while you are at it.

    If seeing Tebow take a quick knee in the end zone on a tv show you can turn off is "sticking it in one's face" I'd love to see it when Jehovah's Witness come to your door.

    We will remember this response when something offends you.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I am really just very polite as I tell them no thank you.

    Apparently, for a lot of Americans, the fact tht some people wanting to have sex in the privacy of their own homes (and keep that legal) and then enjoy the benefits of married life is "sticking it in one's face," too. As is the desire to build a place of worship (at least when that's a mosque), wear certain clothes (if it includes a hejab (sp?)), breastfeed in public, and the list goes on. So, while I agree with you that Tebow while a fool is not what I'd consider a proselityzer, I don't think you'll like where this approach may lead you.
  • I am really just very polite as I tell them no thank you.

    As am I. I did door-to-door work (for a secular cause), and I have sympathy for anyone coldcalling at front doors, it's a rough way to work.

    That's what I do as well. I politely yet firmly tell them no thanks and the door is closing as I say it so they never get a chance to reply. It doesn't offend me but as a practicing agnostic I get annoyed by repeated religious "drive by" assaults... and yes I get rather annoyed by the "religious posing" by people in professional sports.

    Go on then. There's nothing you've said that offends me. Especially not the hijab, breastfeeding in public is awesome, who cares if they build a church or mosque somewhere.... The only thing that makes me wince is homosexual marriage, but I'm not exactly protesting that. If it comes to a vote, I'll vote against it, but that's the beginning and ending of my activisim.

    For that matter, I don't want hetero sex on my tv because of my kids. Now, if it's just me, I'll watch two doods, two chicks, or a man and woman going at it.

    Funny I always skip over the love scenes in movies and tv shows.

    I like to go to Jehovah Witness neighborhoods, dressed up as the devil, and knock on their door at Halloween.

    I just kill them with an axe handle and then bury them in a shallow grave out by the airport. That's ok, right?

    Limbaugh weighs in on Tebow.
    “If Tebow would come out as gay today, he could guarantee himself a spot in the NFL tomorrow,” Limbaugh said.

    Limbaugh shouldn't "weigh in" on anything.

    MY friendly Jehovah Witness is a really nice guy. Nothing in your face, we'll talk about the Packers,.....he has never tried to sell me. Now evangelical Lutherans and some Baptists are in a whole other ball park. I love when they smile their little condescending smile and tell me I am going to burn in hell or that I am in the grasp of Satan. Public display is not something Jesus recommended. They are attention ****, not real Christians



    nice one Darrell
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.
