muslims get dragged through the mud all the time,it is when christianity gets mocked in any way that causes outrage.

I think alot of the anger towards tebow has to with the expectations tebownites put on him & their disappointment that he sucks.

The article makes a good point. I doubt very much there would be any mocking of Tebow if he was a Muslim and praying to Allah. But in this culture, where athiests control much of the media, schools, and entertainment, mocking Christianity is not only acceptable, it is encouraged.

Wrong, he gets mocked because his fanatics (UF fans not god people)crowned him the world's best football player long before he earned it. People who had no horse in the race resented his early crowning and are now piling on with his haters. Like this has anything to do with religion. STFU dimwit. People hate him because he has been treated like the next coming of ElwMontRino or something and has played like Leaf. Bottom line, if you get that much media exposure for allegedly being that good at something you better follow through.

Nobody mocks Muslims because they don't want to end up with no head.

You live is such a ****ing warped bizarro world, I can't even imagine how terrible it must be to go through life with the make-believe insane-o paranoid delusions you have imprinted on your tiny little brain.

Cue llama!

I can probably think of one poster in this thread who would be first in line to mock him.

This whole sociological issue surrounding Tebow is troubling.

There just isn't a sense of social grace in any public conversation anymore. Everything has become political...from who starts at QB to whether the Stones were better than the Beatles to which video games are better, etc, etc. Its a problem that the internet is presenting that will need to be addressed. A generation of people will have to learn through mistakes. These kinds of giant philosophical rifts have never been available 24/7 at peoples' fingertips before.

The Tebow phenomenon is bigger than the NFL, bigger than sport. Its a cultural schism that really doesn't reflect well on us at all.

This is a good article, and she's absolutely right... not sure about that poll in the article, where 68 percent of voters said Tebow will either be a "rousing success" or a "solid starter" in his career.

The problem in the matter and the article addresses it well, is not that people are mocking Tebow. Frankly right now due to his play he deserves it. The problem is that they choose to mock the faith he follows in response to his play. I'd rather have Tebow be the biggest 1st round bust of all time than him give up on God or lose even the smallest portion of his faith. In the end, even though football is a passion to all of us, there are things that are far greater than it.

That being said, lets hope that Tebow and the Broncos come and play lights out against the Raiders and get another W.

While you live in an isolated world, filled with contradictions and hypocrisy of how things should be and the land of reality is nonexistent. In other words, a bozo.:thumbs:

I'm sure that half the NFL consists of devout Christians, but you're not going to hear anything about them. Why? Because, like their parents and grandparents before them, their religion is a personal commitment that they don't need to pull out every minute of their lives and display to everybody else as if it were some kind of badge of elitism.

Tebow makes such a point of displaying his religion you begin to wonder if he's not filled with doubt. Of course, we live in an age of extremism, so maybe it's just that.

What's so fascinating, are the fans and the analysts who claim that they know anything about football, who are saying that TEBOW will never amount to anything as a QB in the NFL.

That's the most assinine thinking I've experienced as a fan for more than 40yrs!

Tebow has started 5 NFL games, has a QB rating of 75, has won 2 games and lost 3.

What the hell does that tell anyone about anything ???

These same ass clowns should go back and watch John Elway's first 11 games and compare his performance to Tebow's. Then do the same with Steve Young. Then do the same with Peyton Manning.

The disdain for Tebow is out of this world, and if it's not religion....then it sure as hell isn't his play in only 5 ****ing starts!

Let the kid play the rest of the year...then, let's form a more logical opinion on whether he can play or not.

Ripping him after 5 starts, only shows what idiots many people are!

I just have to wonder what makes people care. He is a football player. Many of them are pricks. They are paid to run into other big guys... None of them want to be your friend.
