    Tebow himself has nothing to do with this. He seems to be a quiet, fairly humble man.  Let's not paint him with his fans' brush.

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

      after Tebow so much as I was going after his flock.  In my Blue Dawg post, I ended with...

      Was it the “perfect storm” of Collins’ coming out trumping Tim Tebow’s getting his pink slip from the New York Jets on all the major news and sports media outlets that got these folks in a tizzy or what?  I’m left with this conclusion: “Tebow Nation” reminds me a lot of what I call the “Chick Fil-A Christians” in that they worship an upstanding individual with a ton of great personal traits, but they do little to honor the individual they admire when they act like anything but the example said individual set.
      Not sure why it didn't show up on dKos originally (probably operator error on my part) but I've since added it so it's precisely the same as it is on The Blue Dawg.

      I fully expect him to run for political office in the future.

      •  Why, sure he's humble (0+ / 0-)

        He'll tell anyone and everyone just how humble he is, he can't help himself.

        PrezObama's only mistake in the sequester is that he assumed that the Republicans would be more loyal to their oath of office to serve the people than their oath to Norquist to never close tax loopholes.

    •  Diarist should note that. It's deceptive (0+ / 0-)

      to post that without a disclaimer that it's not Tim Tebow's account.

      I see what you did there.
