Coelacanth Filet: What if Tim Tebow had been born without a frontal lobe?

I'm convinced he wasn't.

smooshie: Only problem I have is the very end, which directs viewers to the Focus on the Family website, where I'm sure there will totally not be any biased and hateful massages regarding abortion (along with other Religious Right trash) =/

Aside from that, yeah, it's pretty tame.


This. I'm not enthusiastic about abortion, but I'm not going to support a group that still advocates jailing gay people.

The American public = the intestinal fortitude of a parakeet with AIDS.

If I didn't know who Focus On The Family was, and I didn't know who Tim Tebow was, and I saw this commercial, my first reaction would be that Focus On The Family must be a gay rights organization, because that woman's son looks like he is totally gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind you, but c'mon. The hair? The colored bracelets? The shirt? The silly pop-up from the bottom of the screen (complete with "ooh" face) and the silly grin as he clutches onto her like some crappy Olan Mills portrait? The boy is practically screaming.

For every abortion she doesn't have I'm going to have three.

astrotri: How about this, why don't we stop butting into other people's medical decisions?

OK - fine. I promise not to give that stranger a hard time about having that nose job.

But if you are going to kill your unborn baby, then its not a medical decision. It's murder.

Geez, I'm glad the NAGS didn't like over-react and make themselves look like total douchnozzles.

I prefer Tebow's Pro-Life commercial from before he was born.

Also from their website, on homosexuality:

Also, it should be remembered that there are celibate homosexuals who are trying desperately to live godly lives. Many of them struggle every day to do what is right, fighting inner battles that rage like wildfires. These men and women need every ounce of compassion and support they can get from Christian people who know of their tendencies. Often, however, they are rejected and excluded from the church community because of fear and misunderstanding by those who find them repulsive. This is wrong! These individuals need the community of Christ and the fellowship it can provide. They must be embraced as fellow believers who are trying to please the Lord and conform to a standard of moral purity. How can we do less?

So it's ok to think something bad, as long as you don't do it? (Not that I find anything wrong with homosexuality, although these people certainly do). Is it ok to plan out or think of someone's murder, as long as you don't carry it out? Is it ok to think about raping children as long as you don't do it? Aren't those all sins?

I wish they would at least take a consistent stance on their prejudice views.

It's also murder-suicide to try to give birth to the baby if something goes wrong so that you and your baby would die if you tried to have. Last I heard, both suicide and murder damn you to hell forever. NO EXCEPTIONS. IT'S IN THE BIBLE!

Weaver95: memebot_of_doom: Again, that's not the point, the problem is that CBS is selectively refusing political ads.

Yeah - and i'm pretty sure SCOTUS said that's perfectly legal. Remember that whole dust up about corporations having 'free speech'? welcome to the application of said SCOTUS ruling.

thanks SCOTUS! f*ckers.


Yeah. If only there were some other way for the opposing side to disseminate its views.

Blow it out your ass, you tool. This thread is about a commercial advocating a website, and he commented on that website.

Goddamn idiot.

Came across as pro-incest, to me.

If Mama Tebow had had that tebortion, she wouldn't have a sweet young man in her life today.
 
2010-02-09 06:02:34 PM  
Know what? Meh.
There, I said it.

Hey -- you were in my psych textbook in college, the unit about projection. Still feeling bad about your own mother being so cold towards you, eh?
