    Religion And Football - Let this Thread Die out please - thanks

    I didn't make it through the entire article, but

    http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/35088506/ns/sports-super_bowl_xliv/

    CBS is selling air time.....at the end of the day it's about the moolah. I am wondering whether Tebow will get caught in the middle. My guess is he's doing what feels right....nothing wrong with that, but I think he's gonna get caught in the aftermath.

    I heard Dungy is backing the commercial, and even produced it.  OK, not really.  I just figured tying this to Dungy would add about 700 posts to this thread overnight :^)  Doesn't Polian make a cameo appearance?

    When do you think Welker will be ready to play again?  Do you think he'll ever be as good as he was?

    Football is my religion, or at least I practice it more often than any other.  I've also used "religious occasion" as an excuse for not working on Sundays lol

    AS one should be crucified for releasing anti abortion songs.

    If men got pregnant, abortion would be legal right up until the day of delivery.
    Good point.  If the right thinks abortion is illegal, then we should also want to outlaw masturbation.

    Re: Religion And Football

    That's an interesting theory about pro life being "men controling women" but you may want to use the google toolbar in the top right of you're computer.  Polls show than men and women are equal on this issue.  50% of women were pro choice in 2009 and 49% of men.  Since last I heard women could vote they could have an easy overwhelming majority on this issue if most agreed and probably push to get it changed.  You may want to get the sewing circle together and talk to your fellow women about why they don't have "girl power".

    As for Tebow, he will probably get some crap, but I'm sure he knows that and he feels that he's doing the right thing.  Any true football fan won't give a crap as long as he plays good football.

    "Good point.  If the right thinks abortion is illegal, then we should also want to outlaw masturbation." 

    ~This idea is genius (but please god, no)...  I mean not just for me, but because it's still a man's world, And that's pretty much the reason WHY there's equality, sharing and no violence or wars.  So imo, mighty's idea of building up EXTRA of this testosterone catalyst for society can trully only result in even better things for ALL of humankind.

    ~Also you're way outta line Patsfan1966, Since The Right Wing really does LOVE Jesus, and no doubt would have supported him and his followers (of equal men AND equal women...a heretical notion then) as they traveled penniless from town to town preaching love, compassion for Each and ALL, and spoke out against the excesses and sway of rich merchants pervading and corrupting An Honest, Truer Love for the Almighty One within the set organized religion of the times back then. 

    ~In all though it's pretty presumptuous of you 1966 to believe Jesus would be MORE supportive of Organized Religion's swaying persons towards benevolent and society-improving causes like saving a woman's own fetus OVER some selfish self-right's (of the woman and the woman said fetus is in), And Presumptuous Believing Jesus doesn't believe in hard-work with retainment of hard-earned wealth OVER supporting bums and beggars (of people who never had the connections or assets to have the same opportunities)....  Also, Jesus believes that more automatic guns are good for not just someone's self-rights (instead of justice or simple compassion) BUT They protect those self-rights (from bad people...with automatic guns).

    You people are the reason our country is soooo messed up.



    No actually this country is messed up because
     we have two sides that 
    can't agree to what is necessary to solve
     the problems this country 
    is facing. Sorry but abortion is way down on the list
     unless you are one of 
    people that believe murdering doctors is the answer.

    Re: Religion And Football

    Umm, did WOMEN create the ruling on Roe v. Wade?  No, men did!

    What do you think the ruling on Roe v Wade was?  It was a pro choice ruling, women can have abortions.  Men voted on this, you're argument makes no sense.
     

    If men were the the ones in favor of "pro life" and they were forcing this will on the women who are all "pro choice", than polls would show something like 90% of women being pro choice, and 90% of pen being pro life.  That's simply not the case.

    We know how this story ends..... In a few years it turns out that Tebow has a thing for Alter Boys or Male Escorts.  He blames it on Meth and the Devil and then goes to rehab for his "illness".


    People who want to tell other people what they can and can't do, when it has no bearing on their own life, are simply ill.  There are 6 billion people on the planet, if a drug addicted mother has the sense to not want to give birth to a crack baby, be happy.  Think of it as a financial decision, b/c that baby is growing up on tax dollars.  You gotta love the irony though....

    Re: Religion And Football

    And men are the ones trying to overturn it and killing doctors.  You make NO sense.

    If we are almost 52% women and men do NOT control women, then why doesn't the abortion debate GO AWAY?

    First, women are also trying to overturn roe v wade, it is just a fact that about the same amount of men and women are "pro life".  Even if you don't believe this is true, it is. 

    You said "Men are the ones killing doctors", so I guess you think this means men are the ones against abortion.  A man killed Kennedy also, this doesn't mean all men hated Kennedy.  Men are the ones who kill people, they are the more agressive sex.  I would guess some of those doctors were men, that also doesn't mean all men are pro choice.

    The abortion debate does not go away because about half of Americans are on either side of the debate.  This issue is not divided on gender lines, this is just a fact.  If an overwhelming majority agreed, there would be no debate. 

    You are trying to point your hate toward men on this issue, but it's not a man/woman issue.  It seems you're just a man-hater who will twist and make up facts to fit you're agenda.  In this case there is a ton of facts to show you're theory is wrong.

    I  wonder what Tebow will do when he can't promote the bible under his eyes. probably  as difficult as trying to take the snap under center.

    Re: Religion And Football

    Religious people have nothing to complain about. The world is run by religious fruitcakes. So a lot of them aren't OUR religious fruitcakes. But at least they still believe in their very own officially authorized non-existent deity. They don't worship idols. They just blow them up. And that's the way it's been for thousands of years. It's not surprising that ads have appeared and will appear that confirm who's in charge and who can get away with anything as long as there's no "bad" language. Nor is it surprising when programs and broadcasters make casual religious references as if it's as perfectly matter-of-fact as mentioning that the sky is blue and the grass is green. Atheists are tolerated and viewed with bemused contempt and lumped with tree huggers, zero population nuts, vegetarians who can't be trusted because they look suspiciously healthy and whackos who believe the budget should be balanced. One can only hope that Tebow doesn't wind up with the Pats. I'm sure there are religious people in Foxboro. I just can't recall any of them spouting constantly in public like Dungy and others.

    Only reason this is a big deal is because it is a CHRISTIAN principle...If it were anything Hebrew, Muslim, Hindu, or Buddist there would not be word said about it....
