The Daily FAIL has focused its coverage on the US so much that my derpier FB friends are now posting articles from it. C'mon, Rupert, can't you keep your media markets separate?

First NPH is the farkin' man.

second: as a christian I say we deserve to be mocked at this point. If this is the kind of shiat that we get upset about. Millions in poverty here and around the world. millions starving again here and around the world. And this, THIS is what we choose to be upset about.

This headline is a bit labored.

And while I (I'm a 'mo) don't like to watch football for the pure appreciation of the display of athletic talent, I do like to watch for other reasons.  If you know what I mean.

I could see if the message in the paint was Deut. 22:28-29 or something that it could be considered anti-christian (although... even then, it's from the bible!), but the message is simply the date of the game!

Or do they think that by using a gay man in the ad, they're mocking the bigot in the NFL who puts bible verses there?

I love how 1/3 of the way down the page they blow their whole argument out of the water explaining the Beyonce thing. Perhaps HE didn't come up with the idea, it was the same people who had Beyonce do it before.

/stop looking for things to be offended about.

The right-wing uses British tabloids, which have fewer scruples than the National Enquirer, to launder idiocy, conspiracy theories, and idiotic conspiracy theories into US news media. And for whatever reason, Drew fellates the Daily Fail so this kind of crap gets greenlit regularly.

Tebow fans are a blight on the game and the league.
 
2013-01-08 09:10:12 AM  
So....Tim Tebow is the WHOLE of Christianity now?

I mean, if he was doing the eyeblack thing to mock Tebow, that would be mocking Tebow ... right?

When someone makes fun of me, they aren't making fun of all white men ... are they?

This country is getting farking stupider by the minute

NPH is awesome. Teebow is a talentless chode. There is no god.

Anyways yeah, This is the biggest non issue ever and he was one of 20 people on that commercial.

Well, to be fair, I think its definitely a reference to Tebow. He's the most famous to do it the most recently. But its still not "mocking Christians."

Another Christian here.

I'm not sure "we're" upset about this. The Venn diagram of "Christians" and "WND Readers" has a LOT of nonoverlapping space. Personally, this Christian is just sighing and rolling his eyes over WND trying desperately to manufacture controversy.

Statistics? Yeah I know some guys who use that excuse. It's still pretty gay to watch a bunch of grown men in tight pants slowly traverse a field, stopping regularly to bend over.

In all honesty, the right knows a lot about the qualities of different types of skin, so you may have to defer to them on this one.

Back on point though, as a Christian, I'm tired. I'm tired to stupid people making the rest of us look like idiots. I just want everyone to have a place to sleep and some food to eat, and the right to make out with whomever they want.

Stupidity is endemic to the species. No matter what social category you belong to, there are stupid people who also belong to that category. And they all have big mouths.

Directly a reference to Tebow and not one of the other 40,625,467,205,782,597,256 players at the D-I, II and III levels, plus the pros, plus the CFL (whatever that is), plus the hour and a half the XFL was around (also the USFL, probably) who have written names, numbers (remember Reggis Bush's "619"s) or personal messages (didn't Wes Welker write "Hi Mom" for one of the Superbowls) in their eyeblack?

Not to mention baseball players doing it as well, at least since I was in diapers.

glwtta: Wouldn't it be kind of weird if NPH didn't have a pro-gay agenda?


When Christians say "gay agenda" they're referencing something other than what you think of when you say it. They imagine something evil and sinister, seeking special rights and with destructive ambitions.
 
2013-01-08 09:48:24 AM  
i'm pretty sure the "pro-gay agenda" simply means having equal rights. i know that terrifies some christians, but it shouldn't.

glwtta: Wouldn't it be kind of weird if NPH didn't have a pro-gay agenda?


So far as I can tell, NPH's "gay agenda" is:

-Make people laugh
-Raise two adorable children in a nurturing and financially stable environment

Truly, his very existence is anathema to modern Christianity.

By the same token,when "Christian" is mentioned, some imagine something evil and sinister, seeking special rights and with destructive ambitions.

No gay agenda is where they have to turn you gay because they can't multiply and brainwash their own kids like we do.

The WND is distilled, conservative-Christian fear in HTML 1.0 format. They write so poorly, so biased, and so without any sort of source-verification ethics that they make me completely embarrassed to consider myself a Christian. Hell, I'd be embarrassed if they wrote about the blueness of the sky and I was forced to agree.

Son of Thunder: I'm not sure "we're" upset about this. The Venn diagram of "Christians" and "WND Readers" has a LOT of nonoverlapping space. Personally, this Christian is just sighing and rolling his eyes over WND trying desperately to manufacture controversy.

Who exactly is the "right-wing" in this conspiracy of yours?

More importantly, how do you reliably differentiate their nefarious plotting from just the day to day activity of a really shiatty media group, who have gone from running legendarily shiatty and reactionary newspapers to running the most successful English language "news" website in the world (largely by maintaining the same standard of shiatty, reactionary and salacious journalism for which their newspapers were famous)?

I'd think that a far more likely scenario is that the Mail posts crap like this just because it's cheap and people click on it.

... also the Mail is not owned by Rupert Murdoch.

WTF is wrong with a pro-gay agenda?

People should be able to express their sexuality with other consenting adults however they like, and we should all be in favor of that.

Does anyone have the football rant that P.J. O'Rourke wrote for National Lampoon back in the 70's? It was basically four paragraphs about latent homosexuality. It was hilarious and I wish I had copied it when I borrowed the magazine. It was part of a sports write up.

It goes from God to the Pope to Tebow to the rest of us.

I saw nothing mocking or gay on there. If someone is going to get a wild hair up their butt over this than they deserve to be mocked
