    Well, the mods have said don't discuss this anymore, and I will honor that because it's very important that their function be respected. I mean that.

    If you really want to discuss the matter, open a thread, and we can discuss it at length.

    Yes, they should ban disownment of children for being gay. They should criminalize gay jokes altogether. They should pass a law that says it is illegal to consider being gay odd in any way. In fact, it should be required that half of all children be gay so it's fair.

    What is it you want?

    Being gay isn't normal. It's not illegal, but it's just odd. Always will be. With 7 billion people in the world, you get some mutated genes here and there. No biggie.

    Look-at-me drama. That's what 95 percent of this is about.

    Tebow was a mediocre NFL player who got cache because he wore his Christianity on his sleeve. He was a favorite of many with good cause because he was so anti to the image many wrongly have of the NFL. But you see it was easier to dislike him when, for example, he was traded and Christians wished Payton Manning would break his leg in the first game he played in Denver.

    Tebow has had many doors opened to him like many Christian athletes and conservative athletes in the past. Almost every NFL game starts and ends with prayer. Tebow was special because he was a Christian who played football nor a football player who was Christian, and that is how he acted. IF he had been good he would be leading a team right now. He wasn't. What he is a good man, with a bright future and frankly is no comparison.

    Sam is going to try out....it is a pickem if he makes the team. If he were great for the NFL then this discussion would be different. What I hope is does is help others come out. That would really be a stunner to the bigots.

    do mission work in the off season
    .

    ummm no not true

    He made no bones about his Christianity and was proud of the person he felt it made him.
    true...

    Also, how many NFL "busts" took a team to a play off win?
    they did that despite him playing, in fact how did they do without him?

    Unorthodox throwing motion? Yea, so what? He is a winner and a dedicated player.
    Except he wasn't good.

    Um they were barely .500 without him. And yes he did mission work. Post another pic of a white player doing something similar after scoring or winning. I have been watching football for many many years and cant think of one. Lots of black players do something, like point to the sky and they get no guff for it.

    No, he was just the first guy to get insulted, degraded, mocked, laughed out, and generally deingrated because he's a Christian.

    Best thing for him would have been to be arrested in a hotel room with some hookers and blow. One game suspension and multi year many millions in contracts.
