    In the Babylon of Daniel the prophet, worshipping the wrong God openly got you a one-way ticket to the Lion's Den. The same offense today gets you thrown into America's leftist media Termite Mound. Bill Maher, Bill Press and their ilk are to our social fabric what the termite is to architecture. The two Bills spearheaded the recent vicious attacks on Tim Tebow. His crime, he openly loves Jesus. Then he started to win games, culminating in last week's wildcard game. John 3:16 became the number one Google search the following morning. The introduction to the Good News of salvation...

    Alabama Ties Notre Dame With Most National Titles In Poll Era Cork Gaines Jan. 10, 2012, 9:43 AM If you want another reason why the poll system in college football is absurd, just try to figure out how many national championships Alabama has after winning last night's BCS Championship game. Alabama claims it is their 14th national title. But according to the NCAA, Alabama has actually been recognized with 18 titles. The problem, of course, is that the NCAA does not have a system to determine the national champion on the field. Even with the BCS system, the NCAA still...

    town hall ^ | 1/09/12 | reasonmclucus
    For the first time since the BCS held its first "national championship" game after the 1998 season, there won't be any bowl game that can realistically be portrayed as a "national championship" game. This year's game can only be considered as giving the University of Alabama an opportunity to avenge its loss against Louisiana State University(LSU). The two schools can only play for the championship of the western division of the Southeast Conference(SEC). Alabama cannot even claim the championship of the SEC from a victory because that would require Alabama to defeat eastern division champion , the University of Georgia....

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 7 Jan 2012 | John Semmens
    The National Football League’s Players’ Association (NFLPA) warnedIndianalegislators not to pass a “right-to-work” law in their state. The proposed legislation would bar making union membership a requirement for holding a job. Despite statistical data indicating that economic growth rates and per capita income growth is faster in states that have right-to-work laws, the NFLPA assailed such laws as “the wrong priority for Indiana. These laws undermine the incentive to place teamwork ahead of personal success. They reward selfishness rather than the solidarity and sacrifice that has helped make the NFL the glue that holds our civilization together.” While acknowledging that...

    Nothing makes a secular bigot sputter and vituperate like a Jesus-loving jock. Secularists across the nation are gnashing their teeth this evening over the latest Mile High miracle. Tim Tebow, whose apostolic Christianity has been a thumb in the eye of those who prefer that others keep their religion in the closet, had a big night. The Denver Broncos defeated the defending AFC Champion Pittsburgh Steelers (along with their bad-boy quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger) 29-23 in a first round playoff game, the first overtime game played under new, stricter rules. It ended on the first play from scrimmage in overtime with...

    I'm not a big time football fan, even though I played my fair share of football back in the day. What a thrilling end to the Denver - Pittsburgh game when Saint Tebow threw the game winning, overtime pass to the similarly remarkable Demaryius Thomas. Just as interesting as the game itself has been the media's game of trashing Tim Tebow for his praying and showing "excessive celebration" on the field by kneeling on the turf, poining his fingers up to the Lord, and other Christian confessions. The media has lightened up a bit after seeing and believing Tim's...

    Well, the statistics are in and NFL football star Tim Tebow has yet one more sterling accomplishment--but this one is not about football. It's about his book, "Through My Eyes," about his Christian life story. With staggeringly high sales, Tim Tebow has become the #1 best-selling religious author in America for 2011. Tim explains how his dad told him early in life that becoming a star gives a person a platform for good or evil. He also taught Tim that success opens the door to all sorts of temptations. So Tim purposed in his heart to become a good role...

    One of the fascinating little oddities of academic research is the amount of intellectual capital that the best and the brightest spend in order to catch up with the rest of us. “We consider the relationship between collegiate-football success and non-athlete student performance,” three economists from the University of Oregon write in a recent study. “We find that the team’s success significantly reduces male grades relative to female grades.” “This phenomenon is only present in fall quarters, which coincides with the football season. Using survey data, we find that males are more likely than females to increase alcohol consumption, decrease...

    Best of luck to Tim Tebow and the Broncos against the Patriots this afternoon. Watching liberals’ heads explode when Tebow succeeds is even more entertaining than his stunning performances on the football field. Considering all the thugs and cutthroats who can be found in professional sports, why do they hate a decent guy like Tim Tebow? It’s simple: because they are moonbats and Tebow is good. Bill Maher, arguably the vilest creature ever to slither out of the entertainment establishment, spews Tebow hatred in the context of lefty ideology:

    There hasn't exactly been a lot of good news about the Penn State football program in recent months, and the program got a bit more on Saturday. There are multiple reports coming out of State College that quarterback Matt McGloin got into a fight with receiver Curtis Drake following practice on Saturday. A fight that ended with McGloin being knocked out cold. The details of what happened or what caused the fight are still sketchy at this point, but apparently there was a heated exchange during practice, and when Drake approached McGloin in the locker room after practice, things went...

    On Wednesday, a group of high school athletes at a Long Island school were suspended for staging a spontaneous bout of Tebowing in their high school's hallway. According to Connor Carroll, a senior, the Riverhead administration handed out one-day suspensions to four student athletes after a group of Riverhead students decided to spontaneously hold a group Tebowing session in the school. Tebowing, a relatively harmless act which emerged amidst the rapid rise of the Denver Broncos quarterback, is meant to be an homage to the second-year passer's religiously focused touchdown celebrations. While as many as 40 teens (with some participants...

Short says that he and his wife spent part of Nov. 10 with Paterno. The email says Paterno was more concerned about how his current and former players were affected than himself, and was talked out of holding a press conference. Among Short's revelations is that Paterno specifically says that Coach Mike McQueary never told him "that he...

Put most simply, Tebow consistently outplays the other team's quarterback,...

Although typical anti-American bigots are loathe to admit this fact, it is transparently true. Further, it is the essential values and characteristics of authentic Christianity which most of these non-believers find highly objectionable. This same anti-religious bigotry now threatens to atomize America’s once nearly impregnable foundations. Currently, atheism is more esteemed than American Idol contestants. Meanwhile, atheists pour out disdain against Christians like so many Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. For...

Oh, and for the record, humpback whales typically are about 50 feet long and weigh 50 tons. That’s a whopping 2000 pounds for every foot of whale. Short be...

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week or so, you know that former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, founder of the Second Mile Children’s foundation, was accused of sexually abusing eight minors, including over 40 different charges from 1994-2009. Despite his tremendous accomplishments at Penn State, Paterno...

    Jerry Sandusky: the flags were there all along The list of enablers seems to grow by the minute... the beloved JoePa may now even face charges himself for not reporting Sandusky.  Then there's the crimes themselves: suffice to say, the kind that get you killed your first week in prison. What an unmitigated nightmare for sleepy State College, Pa, the entire NCAA, and above all the victims.  But the sad fact this case could get a whole lot uglier... Obviously there's more questions than answers at this point: like how the wife, family, and Penn State associates of Jerry Sandusky all...

    Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. That's Alex, not Jefferson, Smith. San Francisco's former pinata was 17 of 24 for 200 yards and one TD against the Redskins in another efficient, workmanlike effort for the victorious 49ers. Smith is apparently concentrating on not being the reason why the 49ers lose this season, on not making mistakes. It's working. Perhaps by the end of the year he'll be intent on being a big reason why they win. Whether he feels the need to carry the team on his shoulders or not--and Noman hopes he never does if it takes him out of...

    The big lie of Occupy Wall Street begins with its name, it isn't occupying Wall Street, it's occupying the resources of a city with a budget crisis on its hands. Wall Street has been locked down since after September 11 and the Zuccotti Park encampment and its associated barricades isn't doing much to impact the lives of the brokers and financial analysts the idiots in their best protest gear are braying about. The people who are being impacted are the small businesses adjacent to the protesters who are experiencing a return of the post 9/11 lockdown that wiped out so...

    A middle school gym teacher makes $99,528 a year in the Troy Public Schools. An elementary school gym teacher makes $97,108.
