    The prayer thing before the Wonderlick was hilarious.  Why can't these bible thumpers keep their religion to themselves?  He makes me nauseous.

    Re: Tebow, Christianity and the Media

    Cromartie has 9 children with 8 women living in five states, and has been named in at least five paternity suits in the past two years.

    And God forbid we start letting people like Tebow into the NFL. Why, look at how hostile fans have been to Kurt Warner over the years and how he has ruined the NFL! Ben Watson, Richard Seymour, Dallas Clark, Roosevelt Colvin, Reggie White, Curtis Martin, Junior Seau, Randall Cunningham, Mike Singletary, Darrell Green, Frank Reich.....why they were nothing but trouble. 

    Sad commentary to see the football fans line up and trash Tebow for his Faith rather than laud him for his athletic abilities. Every Patriots game I've attended (7) I've seen the teams gather at mid-field in a circle and pray at game's end. No matter how physical the game or who won, they came together. You barely see this on televised games. Maybe all of you can band together and get that eliminated. I mean, it's destroying this nation isn't it? 

    Everyone here is enjoying their Constitutional right to free speech. That's fine. But those that would have Tebow denied from that same free speech are treading on dangerous ground IMO. Have you considered the hypocrisy you are displaying?

    In Response to Re: Tebow, Christianity and the Media : ...The answer to this is that we don't care what religion you practice (or don't practice) but we do not want to hear it. Isn't your relationship with God/whatever a private matter? If so, why are so many so eager to blather on and on about it? Be a zealot if you want, keep it to yourself and everybody will be happy.

    Just ignore it then, or change the channel.  It's a free country.  I don't want to hear nut bag atheists blather on about how offended they are by religion, but I manage to put up with it.

    So the pats and their fans are Non Christians now?? Wow -I'll just add that to the ever growing list of "Why Leon Hates the loudmouthed know nothing fans of the NE patriots" The Jets don't need a QB or maybe the Jets would take him.the pats are definitely going to need a new QB and soon! Brady finally showed up for workouts huh?I heard he was out of shape and in definite need of an attitude adjustment. That Gisele will be the end of him if she already isn't.

    Way to add to the discussion, you interject yourself into a thread as usual with no wisdom imparted.  And the feelings are mutual about the hate thing, except I don't go to a Jets forum to cry for attention or pretend that I know more than the guys that post there.

    In Response to Tebow, Christianity and the Media:
    This quote is from Michael Silver's column on Yahoo Sports this week. It brings up many questions about the role of religion, prostylizing vs. self expression, First Ammendment rights and what kind of controversy players will bring with them etc. Your thoughts? Last week, one AFC front-office executive went so far as to turn Tebow’s biggest perceived positive against him, saying the quarterback’s much-publicized embracing of Christian values and immense popularity made him a less attractive draft pick. “I don’t want any part of him or the circus,” the executive said. “At some point, as a team, don’t you have to be concerned with what comes with him? The guy has never met a microphone he didn’t like, and he’s obviously got a message. I think he needs to go away and hide for awhile.”

    Amen! I'd love to know who this AFC front office "Executive" is EH? That is just how is today, dump on the Christian with values, and let every single dirt bag in!

    No one is denying him the right to say what he wants, but let's not pretend that he doesn't use his fame as a platform or to proselytize.  I'm sure Tim thinks its his purpose on earth, his ministry, to convert the non-believers.  Fine, he should do it all he wants, but I find it annoying and I'm sure his future teammates will too if he can't play a lick of football at the NFL level.  

    Some of us think it's admirable that he's a God fearing man.  But I for one really don't want to hear about it, and I really can't stand when people, especially intolerant zealots of any religion, think their beliefs are the true beliefs and everyone else is a damnable sinner.

    The Christian God isn't for everyone, and the non-Christians who worship their own God worldwide are welcome to do so as well.  Just don't push your beliefs on me.

    In Response to Re: Tebow, Christianity and the Media : FAIL. This country was NOT founded on christianity and freedom of religion also includes freedom from religion. BTW freedom of religion doesn't mean "if you're not christian then find another country" you're contradicting yourself.

    ???????? Hey Ricky, I think that you'd really should brush on your history. You sound just like all of the other "Obamites who totally disregard everything that has come before and make up their own distorted version of real history! Try reading the Declaration of Independence. The Bill of Rights and so on...

    It's amazing that God has become a bad thing almost like profanity. I'm trying to figure out who Tebow has hurt in his life to come under attack because of his religious beliefs. I'm very interested in knowing who this AFC Executive is and I'd like to go through his roster and scrutinize the players. I don't promote anything one way or the other. That's for everyone to figure out for themselves but to pass on a player and ridicule him because of religious beliefs....... I don't get it!

    Just thought I'd interject here that -- once again -- as Silver has declined to identify this supposed executive with these supposed opinions about Tim Tebow, it's not beyond the scope of believability that this whole story is a fabrication.

    Then walk away or turn the volume down. I can't stand Keith Olbermann but, he uses his "platform" to make his beliefs known. I don't let him "push" those beliefs on me because I don't watch him. The same freedom we enjoy to exercise our free speech is a 2 way street. We also have the same right to not listen to what we choose. I don't get the problem with Tebow using his "platform" for what he believes. I don't know what rock all of you have been living under but, every celebrity, athlete, politician, etc; has used their "platform" to exercise their right to free speech ever since I can remember. So what? As a veteran, I appreciate the sacrifice others have made so I can say whatever I want in this country. I may not like it all but, thank God we all have the freedom to do so.

    It's tough when all they teach is revisionist history in schools. Most people can't even tell you who wrote the declaration of independence. God forbid they should teach that the country was settled by people who were fleeing from religious persecution. And yes, they had christian beliefs...Oh No, he said the "c" word.

    The point is, know your audience.  What are the people in the room who are Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, whatever, supposed to do when this nut job stands up and tries to lead a prayer?  Freedom from religion is just as important as freedom of religion.  Oh, and revisionist history my azz - see what the conservatives are doing with the Texas school curriculum these days? Talk about revisionist.

    i was a history major, im a football fan and a former christian

    and just because your tea party ideals(ie corporate welfare and hate) have some popularity right now...its ONLY because obama is a Black president who is a democrat...which means that every republican in the world will refer to him as a socialist...just the way they cried back during the great depression when our government put people to work(including authors and artists) and because public money was used to do so...FDR was all of sudden a socialist...

    people with such ideas make me sick and have ZERO idea what it is to be an American other than the right to be lazy and uneducated

    Agreed 123meg.  Know your audience, and know when religion should be left out of the conversation, like on this posting board probably.

    Who cares.

    We have freeodom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press.

    This has nothing to do with the Pats unless they are dumb enough to take him before the 6th round.

    Yes I'm familiar with many of Jeffersons quotes.

    What does one mans quote have to do with the settling and founding of this country which was settled and founded  because they were being persecuted by people who wanted them to practice a religion the Kings way.  It doesn't change history but you would like it to. The truth is back then 99% of the people were church going Christians of many different sects.Once again try reading a history book that wasn't rewritten by a Socialist.Thanks for the quote though.
