Ow! That was my feelings!: evangelical Christians =/= 'regular' Christians


I didn't say they were.

Once again, look who's feeling persecuted. I said exactly what I meant and you interpreted it so you could feel offended and like you weren't overreacting.

The only people that care nearly as much about Tebow's performance as Evangelicals who hope he does well to "prove" the existence of God are the atheists who hope he fails to "disprove" it.

Both sides are stupid.

I don't get the headline? Did someone name their fetus Tebowing? I gather from the pics in the thread that this has something to do with football.

IAmRight: Once again, look who's feeling persecuted.


Yup.

Imagine what will happen when there is the first openly gay NFL player. Would it be OK to be upset about all those troublesome queers flocking to be fans of that player's team? After all, they are all in your face about being gay. Oh, wait, saying something like that would be incredibly uncool.

I am an agnostic bordering on atheist. My BS sensors go up whenever anybody mentions their "god" in any capacity. But at the same time I'm OK with anyone living their life the way they see fit as long as they're not bothering others. Tebow isn't the "this is what I believe and SO SHOULD YOU!!!" Evangelical. What he believes works for him and he doesn't try to push it on others nonstop. He's not like Kurt Warner who used to hand out scripture on cards to press members interviewing him or like Jon Kitna wearing a hat with a cross on it instead of his team's logo. And even they didn't bother me so much - except for Warner who is/was so overrated it's not even funny, but that's a football issue and not a religion issue. I get the sense that Tebow is 100% genuine, unlike politicians and megachurch pastors who exploit their religion for personal gain. I could be wrong, but at the same time I'd rather be wrong and not paranoid than the alternative.

If I were going to hate people for their beliefes, especially ones that are fairly typical in American culture, I'd have stopped talking to family, friends, and clients long before I got all butthurt by whatever it is the Tebow believes. I don't belong to a cult so I'm pretty used to dealing with and tolerating all sorts of opinions I agree or disagree with on a variety of levels. I guess everyone needs their totem to piss on but Tebow's views aren't even close to being catastrophically awful or inherently mean spirited or apprehensible so what the fark ever. I don't know how some of you get by in society if you let people disagreements bother you that much. Do you insulate yourselves in a coven of like minded individuals who have strictly atheist views are about opposed to anything even marginally conservative? That kind of sounds like its own religion.

Yeah, I probably should just let it go. My family is full of hateful, ignorant evangelicals who didn't give a crap about football until Tebow showed up in a Broncos jersey and now I'm getting another wave of godspiel based on him. Not Tebow's fault, of course, but its wrecking my enjoyment of the Broncos resurgence and it's making me bitter. Pile on top of that the ridiculous amount of hype that surrounds his mediocrity and the boring ass offense that the Broncos are running...... Crap, this year is sucktactular, when it shouldn't be. meh, I'm gonna go make dinner for my girl and chase her around the bedroom a couple times....

//still gonna hate and I'm not gonna care if you don't appreciate it.

Genevieve Marie: GimpyNip: What should you do for a woman if she tells you she had an abortion (non-rape or incest)? Get her a Hallmark Card?

How about keep your mouth shut and not say anything? Or possibly ask them why and really listen? And maybe recognize that your opinion doesn't really matter to her because it's a personal decision that has nothing to do with you?

GimpyNip: Hell, all Tebow did was present a natural alternative to abortion and for that you are so upset that you want a dozen women to manipulate and extort him.

I probably shouldn't have said that. But I do hope that dude has some experiences that make him figure out that his weirdly narrow view of the world is really privileged and really condescending and ridiculous. Whatever those experiences may be. And I'd like it if he could recognize that the ability to throw a football doesn't confer any great understanding of the world on the person doing it, and perhaps a little less ostentation about his beliefs would be a good idea.

G.M.

was my first choice for my (adopted) daughter's name. I hope she matures with consciousness as well evolved as that shown in your post.

I'm completely non-religious. I'm a pedestrian. When I feel spiritual, I take a walk. I'm fine with Tebow being all about his beliefs, and am thoroughly impressed by his accomplishments, and how he handles himself. He's jamming right now, and it's fairly awesome. Haven't heard a thing about him going off about the whole 'Tebowing' thing, which is clearly hilarious. He talks the talk, and walks the walk. That's how the world works. Performance is rewarded, baby. Regardless of age, creed, color, national origin, or which deity you choose to embrace.

They were running a boring offense before, too.

Points per half have gone up from Orton to Tebow (especially when you remove defensive/special teams points).

As a Bronco fan, I'm getting a very satisfying kick out of each and every Tebow thread. Even more satisfying is that Tebow haters can't help but post in these threads too. You know you're addicted and hanker for even more Tebow threads! Love it! My Broncos are making bank off our Tebow, so he was clearly a wise first round pick!

Unlike Kurt Warner, who I eventually wanted to make STFU, Tim Tebow is largely keeping his mouth shut except when he's answering direct questions. ESPN and SI are the ones who won't shut up.

Having grown up in a similar background as Tebow, I'm inclined to think that there's a good chance that he wishes everybody would stop making a big deal about how wonderful he is. It's obviously a much smaller scale, but through no efforts on our part my siblings and I would up being seen as the homeschool poster children in our community, and it's difficult to figure out how to navigate an environment where you're seen as the representative of an entire movement. I graduated high school over a decade ago, went off to college, lived and worked overseas, have done all sorts of things in my life, and I still occasionally have people throw the whole "good Christian homeschool poster child" thing at me if I voice an opinion other than the one they think a good Christian homeschool poster child should have. And I don't have to deal with my mom running around the country taking religious right speaking gigs entirely on the basis of being "Rynthetyn's mom". Tebow's in a no-win situation, and all things considered I think he's been handling it as well as he can.

Incidentally, I think somebody at ESPN has a hard on for former missionary kids, because back when they still carried hockey they talked so much about Robyn Regehr being a missionary kid who was born in Brazil and lived in Indonesia that I wanted to throw something at the TV.

Absolutely this. He might throw a thanks to God into an interview, but, much like the Farve "retirement saga" this is mainly a product of ESPN needing to fill 960 hours a day of programming on the TV and radio empire.

The kid stands up for what he believes, he lives his life like he believes, and people who dont are going to hate/mock him for it.

He doesent push anything on anyone. Do you think he LIKES the fact that everyone knows about his virginity and discusses it on Fark, to the point of making up stories about washcloths or stories about equiment managers moving to Nebraska? Would you want YOUR beliefs (whatever they are) thought of FIRST everytime anyone saw you? This cannot be easy for him, but he does not shy away from it. How can you not respect a man who does not take the easy route when it comes to his beliefs, no matter WHAT you believe?

Pluse, you have to love people who shake things up. Im calling my next kid Tebow.

He appeared in an anti-abortion ad for freaking Focus on the Family that ran during the Super Bowl. That's pretty damned pushy.

That ad was neither anti-abortion nor openly religious in any way. Yeah FotF is a despicable organization but I'll give Tebow a pass for that because the way he was raised gives him a much different perspective on them than we have. I think he realized after the backlash that FotF is widely despised but I can definitely see how he wouldn't know that before associating with them.

In other words, take the sand out of your vagina. The ad was not at all what you make it out to be and not everyone shares your perspective on everything.

Not sure what "Tebowing" is, but I'm going to assume that this involves a baby crying after being spanked by Nick Saban.

Genevieve Marie: I keep waiting for some enterprising woman or 12 to get pregnant with Tebow's baby, and be all like... well, you don't believe in abortion so... pony up.

Either that, or for him to get caught in bed with a male prostitute.

Really? Googling them just comes up with a few links to their website and other simliarly-inclined sites and groups. Look, I know why they suck and clearly so do you. But someone brought up in a super-religious bubble is not likely to understand why FotF is despised outside of their bubble. Again, it's unbelievable that you can't understand this.

Very much this. Heck, given his age, he probably mainly associates FotF with their "Adventures in Odyssey" Saturday morning radio series for kids. Most of the people who sing the praises of FotF aren't even particularly aware of their political side, or of their ties to ex-gay groups, or any of the other nasty stuff they do, they just think of them as a group that helps strengthen families.

I grew up in that bubble, it was only after I got out of the bubble that I knew there was any real criticism of the organization.
