    It was, but now it's some sort of incomprehensible mixture of Christian conservatives going after the Muslim or reminding liberals of their outrage toward Tebow, and liberals adopting the viewpoint of defending the player or reminding conservatives of their views toward Tebow.

    Regardless, I have a small amount of tolerance toward touchdown celebrations of any kind. I'd prefer it if there was a light cheer, a fist bump, or a fist pump rather than some acrobatic routine or testimony to God.

    It's piety and controversy.

    I totally agree. Professional athletes should take care of their religion on their own time.

    I doubt that any of them play sports in their church or mosque.

    Thus the reason the 15 yard penalty was inappropriate.

    I really have no problems with Tebow's religiosity. If he wanted to drop to one knee, fine. But if you're going to allow that, Husain Abdullah should get the same courtesy.

    Wrong, Tebow got ran out of the NFL on a rail. The other got a apology for the flag. Hope you all are ready to convert. Or at least get your kids ready. Its coming.

    Was he facing Mecca, did he do it at both appointed times of the day that day? If no, he is a poser and a trouble maker.
