Default Focus on the Family - Tebow & Colorado's radical Christian organization.

The analysts and scouts may question the Tebow pick, but members of the Colorado Springs organization "Focus on the Family" are elated, as the star of their Pro-Life Super Bowl Commercial ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sreLyzUFdx0 ) is coming to their state.

Focus on the Family president Jim Daly has been vocal about his excitement over the pick, as has the rest of the organization.


Focus on the Family is a non-profit company based in Colorado Springs. Some of the core promotional activities of the organization include a daily radio broadcast by Dobson and his colleagues, providing free resources and family counseling according to Focus on the Family views, teaching Intelligent Design to people of all ages, fighting gay rights, supporting the physical punishment of children, and blaming disasters like 9/11 on America's use of profanity.

Tim Tebow's first post-college contract was with FotF, knowing the allegiance cost him many other offers. Expect to see his connection to the organization continue to grow the longer he stays in Colorado.

I find this conspiracy theory quite amusing.

I am a believer and I wouldn't let Mr. Religious Pharisee Dobson in my home, anybody who teaches to hate is a douchebag.

If you know the doctrine, you know False teachers will be throught the world and deceive.

You really think Dobson called McDaniels and Bowlen and told them to draft Tebow for his selfish purpose?



Birdman and Tebow in the same city= Titles

Tebow explicitly stated earlier that he has no relationship with Mr. Dobbs.

But hey, keep on stoking the religous bigotry. It's been a impressive effort on Orangemane so far.

As someone who might care about the political stances of focus on the family...I can honestly say I dont.

Odd.

Yeah, we'd hate it if someone had differing political or religious opinions. That's just awful. What we're trying to do here is to funnel as many idiots as we can into the same shallow groupthink paradigm. No dissenters, no disagreement...just do what youre told and shut up.

Right?

That's the European model, and that's what's best for everyone.

No, I just don't think football players are an authority on politics and therefore shouldn't use the NFL as a soapbox to proselytize.

Before he entered the league, Kyle Orton campaigned for Democrats in the Iowa state house, was a member of the Iowa's Farmers Union, composts his organic waste, and drove a Prius... do you see him do ads on tv about it?

And if you think that's the "European" model, then you know absolutely nothing about international politics (my major at DU).

He also said he's not into forcing religion on his teammates or fans, for what it's worth... something you rarely hear from radical types.

It's like Kurt Warner, a good QB and the ultimate underdog story, a fun guy to cheer for. He was religious and used his fame to promote organizations that supported the disabled. Then he became politically active in 2006 and began campaigning against Stem Cell research. I'm sure it made him some fans, but it alienated many others.

Tim Tebow, unlike Kurt Warner or Steve Largent, didn't wait. He began using his celebrity for conservative christian politics before he was even drafted. The question is, do you want someone that vocal and political, or easily duped into being vocal and political, having as much influence on this town as John Elway?

Thankfully the odds of that happening are slim, as his skills are limited enough to keep him on the bench and out of Denver's limelight. I hope, anyway.

Warner is against embryonic stem cell research, not adult stem cell research.

And who cares if Tebow is politically active? How is that important to what he does on the field?

So, because of his personal and political beliefs, you hope that he fails and screws the Broncos?

For the record, he also is considered one of the all time great collegiate athletes. If sports ever offers a podium - and often does much to the detriment of society - then he earned it.

John Elway is very conservative, and I don't mind because he waited till after he retired to vocalize his politics.

Tebow isn't trying to knock the weener out of your mouth. He just wants to win a motherfarking game.

I'm not the one mixing up politics and football. Tim Tebow can take credit for that, I'm responding that I don't want it in Denver.

"teaching Intelligent Design to people of all ages, fighting gay rights, supporting the physical punishment of children, and blaming disasters like 9/11 on America's use of profanity."

That's not very radical except maybe the last part. I do remember 9/11 being blamed on our lack of morals but not profanity specifically. Other than that- pretty standard bull**** that I've heard from a substantial number of Christian leaders in this country.
