Atheist Group Believes Tebow ‘Full Of C**p’
CBS Denver ^ | 10 Jan 2012 | Matt Higgins

Posted on 01/11/2012 6:27:20 AM PST by Rummyfan

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has seemingly made himself the poster boy for Christianity, praying on the field after a win, putting Bible verses on his eye black during games and even starring in an anti-abortion ad during the Super Bowl, but one atheist group believes he’s doing it all for personal gain.

...

Silverman states that Tebow’s repeated references to God into his post-game comments after a win is “bad for football.

“(Religion) injects the divisive force into football,” Silverman says. “Why in the world are we talking about religion when we are talking about football?”

Perhaps Mr Silverman can explain why Sunday's playoff game was the most-watched in over twenty years, if TT is so bad for football.

Of course they do. What else would you expect?

But...they're in for a surprise.

An atheist tantrum! Cool! The commie libs are freaking out all over the place. I’ve got a feeling that they know their time is running out. It will be November before you know and all of the commie libs will be scurrying back to the sewers.

Why would athiests care what a football player does or does not do? Did they have apapletctic coniption fits when Chad “Ochocinco” pulled out sharpies or a cell phone after scoring a touch down?

Why not?

Oh! That's right. If they don't like or agree with something then it has to be stopped and all forced to avoid the subject of their loathing.

How about atheists just ignore it.

Besides, God loves football and appreciates a shout out now and then. His agents work in plugs when they can.

Love that atheists are quoting Biblical to excoriate Tebow.
Atheists are jokes in and of themselves.

You have to really work hard to be as miserable and petty as this atheist group.

But it sounds like they have a good "work" ethic. Ha ha!

Even Pat Condell, one of the most articulate and brillant atheists you will ever find, is sick of these stupid attempts by these groups to try to eradicate any idea that religion exist.

Great point. According to the atheists, huge TV ratings are bad for football. Those atheists must be really smart. LOL!

Notice that most atheists are anti-Christian.
They don’t really care if a Hindu, Budhist, or Muslim expresses his faith.

Atheists are some of the most religious people alive.

Their philosophy of life results in making themselves god, they ultimately worship themselves or the creation rather then their Creator.

No, the movement is not even anti-religious hatred, it is hatred of Christ. The same nitwits would be mum if an NFL quarterback were offering thanks to Krishna, or attributing his success to Zen meditation, or shouting “Allahu Akbar!” after touchdowns. Either mum or gushing over how diverse and progressive the NFL had become.

Tim Tebow is God’s Troll. And the haters that hate him keep feeding the troll.

Good thing the people who hate Tebow are so stupid they don;t realize this.

That's because satan doesn't need to bother with false religions. Only the true God is his enemy.

‘Full Of C**p’

CBS Denver uses the word “Crap”, not “C**p” in their title.

Deliberate censorship of innocuous words reflects Orwellian fear.

Why are you people always so frightened of spelling out words as they appear?

Ever heard of the 1st Amendment?

John 15:18-25

18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20 Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’[b] If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. 24 If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. 25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’

Nope, can't have that! Perish the thought of football being competitive or divisive!

But I'm still cheering for the Pats on Saturday.

Mr. Silverman is bitter and pathetic, and he is desperate to see his name in the media. What is divisive in NFL are the thugs. dog torturers, drug users, and wife or girlfriend beaters. T. Tebow has not harmed anyone.
