Hey, if you've got it, flaunt it, no? Not all religious people are uptight, closed-minded uber-conservatives.

Yes, and I'm glad (because I am not a Christian and hope this conservative mentality will someday become a thing of the past; however, with *public figures* such as Newt Gingrich, it looks as if the nation may be in for a relapse, but I digress.) that things are not this way to that extent any longer, but for her to be the way she is and claim that she wants a "good, Christian boy" is just hypocritical IMO.

I'm okay with this poll. They only surveyed about one thousand people, by telephone, and of the 70some percent who were aware of the Tebow phenomenon, they answered the question phrased Do believe that any of Tim Tebow’s success can be attributed to Divine Intervention. So I can buy 43% of some seventy percent of some thousand people surveyed by telephone said they believed an undisclosed amount of Tebow's success can be attributed to divine intervention. I'm okay with that.

OR AM I

It's okay! I'm working on a script focusing on their passionate off-again on-again love affair. Can we get this thread moved to Upcoming Movies?

43% of Republicans? I wonder how many Democrats.

I don't hate Tim Tebow. I hate everyone's, especially the media's, obsession with him. He's not the first Christian to to play sports, to thank God after scoring a goal/TD/home run/whatever, nor is he the first to thank God during a press conference or awards show. He might be the one who flaunts his love of God and Jesus the most, however. Because of this, people praise the Lord every time he scores and/or the Broncos win . . . no matter how shitty his stats are, and they've been pretty bad. Every time he loses, they keep their mouths shut and the haters have their day to shine.

I'm sure Tebow is a great guy; I've read all the good things he does before football games, about his charity work, and meeting with fans. He seems like an all around cool, down-to-Earth guy. But the obsessive craziness that follows him everywhere he goes is simply sad.

My only opinion about Tebow is that if god was really helping him, than I think he would have Tebow complete more than 40% of his passes.

Yep. Both sides are pretty obnoxious. The haters are starting to annoy me a little more because they've completely ignored the kid's successes and instead nitpick at all of his shortcomings. For a rookie QB who wasn't expected to do much, he was critical in turning a doomed season completely around for the Broncos. He has surpassed expectations. I don't know why we can't agree that there may be something to this kid other than hype. He's not the most naturally gifted QB, for sure, but he's gotten quite a lot done with his limited abilities.

Then again, his successes are due to his effort and talents alone. No deity involved. I see no point in even arguing this.

??? Probably the silliest reason why to not like sports I have every heard. There are way more important things that can be taken out of sports. Maybe you mean pro sports.

I think he was trying to say that he doesn't like sports because he doesn't share the enthusiasm for them that many people seem to show. Of course, this is a rather extreme example but I think he acknowledged that.
