  •  You should actually know what you're offended by (0+ / 0-)

    when you spout off.  Tebow has done a lot of missionary work in the Philippines as he was growing up - that was part of his family.  He has promoted a hospital they built in the Philippines and he has said that he'll continue with missionary and helpful works whenever his time with football is over.  He's happy that he's got an opportunity to play the game he loves, but you're very wrong in slamming him with your words without knowing what he's about.

    I cringe when I hear the first words out of his mouth being about Jesus, since I'm atheist, but that's his passion and I'm not going to begrudge him that.

    •  I don't trust missionaries (0+ / 0-)

      family members are always hitting us up for their various mission trips. I see it as colonialism, "tit-for-tat" help. I'm well aware of his mission work, so, yeah, my point stands.
