CBS’s newest Tebow hater
A writer at CBS Sports hates Tim Tebow. I’m shocked, shocked!
Why the written rage? (Hint: it isn’t about football…)
Tebow has agreed to speak at a hateful Baptist preacher’s church, an evangelical cretin named Robert Jeffress…
Pump your brakes there, sports boy: “Hateful” and “cretin” don’t go with “evangelical.”
What follows is the real reason for the writer’s angst: all writing, including sports writing, is autobiographical.
Tebow’s religious views are not mine…
So the real reason for the Tim Tebow hate—the same sort of “hate” sports writer deplores—is this: Tebow will be a speaker at a church where the pastor doesn’t hold the same values the writer.
Since sports writer doesn’t approve of the pastor’s thoughts, by extension, Tim Tebow is worthy of all derision. (And by further extension, were Tebow to appear at a prison, sports writer would think he’s a criminal.)
The left tells us tolerance and diversity based on race and gender is a good thing. However, by their words, we can see tolerance and diversity based on differing religious views is a bad thing (unless one is a member of the religion of peace). Opiates of the masses and all that. The left believes the people only need the welfare state as their true opiate and our “free press” as the opiate delivery system.
I would imagine if Tebow had only picked his engagements and issues in a more politically correct manner, sports writer would by good with it. A more PC manner would include (for example) consorting with a domestic terrorist, condemning waterboarding, hanging with Al Sharpton for some fun with smoke and fire, advocating for gun control, homosexuality, abortions, and pre-marital sex, and/or speaking at a Scientology temple.
This sort of diversity—the rigid and disingenuous “diversity” of the left—would make Tim Tebow OK.
Why? Because it would mean he’s one of their own.
