  •  Why are these people so dense (6+ / 0-)

    Being an openly Christian football is not unusual. It is ordinary. Tim Tebow is not notable for being a Christian football player for the same reason Jermaine Dye is not notable for being a black baseball player. Because, you know, Christian football players and black baseball players exist in huge numbers now.

    This is the persecution complex taken to a new extreme.

    EVERY F-ING TIME a team wins a championship, you can hear the first interview feature a player who will inevitably ignore the first question asked to him so that he can spend 15 seconds reminds you that, yes, God made HIM that AWESOME. And how God rewarded him with a championship for, I'm assuming, being a better Christian than the poor Christian shmuck crying on the other side of the field.

    Even being openly, in your face Christian is not novel in professional sports. Despite what these people will tell you, it is the fucking default.
