Tim Tebow's Message
Naturally, many women’s groups have been upset about the ad, which is a little funny since it has not aired, and only a select group has seen it. There has been no transcript released, except that CBS has said the words “abortion” and “pro-life” do not appear in the ad.
Every fan of abortion pretends that they view their sacred right as a necessary evil, claiming that they want to limit the number of abortions (while making it cheaper, easier, faster, and available to minors without parental consent—you know, all the things that will limit the number of abortions). They want the undecided segment of America to think they only want abortion to remain legal for the cases of rape or incest. (It should be noted that less than 1% of abortions are performed on women who say they were raped, and of those, like Roe herself, many lie about being raped so they will not be judged for their abortion.)
These women’s groups are supposed to be in favor of choice, but it is clear to me that they are only in favor of choosing abortion. Tebow’s commercial is not saying to make abortion illegal, it is saying to choose life. If these women really supported a woman’s right to choose, then they should support the Tebow ad, because keeping a baby is a choice. If they disagree with Pam Tebow’s choice to keep her son, then this confirms that they love abortion. And where is the respect for Pam? These groups say we need to respect women’s choices, but they are showing no respect for this respectful woman.
We have not seen the commercial yet, and sadly, I won’t get to see it on Super Bowl Sunday either. Why? Because the other commercials are so bad that our youth will be turning the TV off during our Super Bowl party. This is why I am sick of hearing people make the lame argument that the Super Bowl is no place for this message. What other ads are going to be aired during the Super Bowl? Coors, Budweiser, Victoria’s Secret, Viagra, Go Daddy, and who knows what else. What a shame that people are getting worked up over something decent interrupting the vile advertising that will be taking place. I think this ad will be a breath of fresh air on TV.
And for all of you that are upset that this commercial does not present the Gospel, please remember two things. #1, The CBS criteria will not allow them to. So what is the solution—not doing anything, or doing their best with what they can do? #2, Because of the controversy, which everyone involved in knew there would be, it is allowing them the opportunity to present the Gospel to millions of people.
For example, when the news does a story on this ad, they show Tebow, who is either preaching in a prison or wearing John 3:16 painted on his face, which has caused more than 93 million people to Google that verse.
So when the liberals of this country want to pick and choose which voices get heard and which ones gets silenced, Tim Tebow has once again found a way to penetrate and score. It is sad that we live in a society that is OK with vulgar commercials because of the right to free speech. These are the same people trying to silence Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and other conservative voices under the “Fairness Doctrine,” while allowing CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and every other biased news outlet to report whatever they want.
Tebow could be doing a Super Bowl commercial with Nike, Gatorade, or anything else, but he is putting his career on the line by standing for something. Instead of criticizing him, we should be encouraging him, because frankly, we need more of him.
In Florida, Tim Tebow is a legend.
If Tim Tebow goes into McDonald's and orders a Whopper, he gets one.
Tim Tebow can win Connect 4 in 3 moves.
Chuck Norris wears Tim Tebow pajamas.
There is nothing he cannot do, and he is, perhaps, the greatest college football player of all time. And that has little to do with his football stats.
God, give us more Tim Tebows, people who will take a stand, live for You, and point people to the cross, no matter who they upset in the process.
Go Gators, and Go Tim Tebow!
