    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Cut this PC crap already!!! This is getting stupid. First, someone gets fired for the common phrase 'Chink in the Armor' and now this. America has become too PC for its own good.
    as long as they cut him some royalties he probably doesn't give a damn. he's a professional and endorsements is one of the perks of being a popular professional athlete

    its why Ivan Lendl endorsed ben gay and Mcdonalds, and Joe Namath pantyhose

    I read the fortunes in them but I don't eat the cookies... I don't like how they taste.

    New York Super Fudge Chunk is the best flavor anyway.

    Yeah, because some people just must be intolerant of religion.

    It was a joke, buddy. Even I laughed.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Well, I admit it's a ridiculous thing to get angry over, but I can see why some people are upset.

    Imagine if there was an ice cream consisting of active ingredients including watermelon, chicken, and Kool-aid named after some black player.
