Methinks Denver’s NFL franchise just gained a number of fans equal to or even greater than whatever number it may have lost by trading Focus on the Family Boy to, ummmm… what was it that Dana Beyer just called it – oh, that’s right – “the Jewish capital of the world,” for if it pisses off Crazy Uncle Chuckles its probably a good thing.
Televangelist Pat Robertson says that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning should be punished with an inury because the team traded devout Christian Tim Tebow.
“And you just ask yourself, OK, Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he’s been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback — and in my opinion, it would serve them right.”
Well, I certainly am unaware of Peyton or Eli teaming up with their mother (or daddy Archie for that matter) to shove an anti-abortion commercial down the throats of an American sports audience who, if they took the christian book of fairy tales as literally as anti-abortion-oids profess to expect everyone to, not only wouldn’t be a collective party – even a passive one – to a business that operates almost exclusively on Sunday but instead would be actively seeking to inflict Pentateuch-ish justice on those who in any way participate in a business that operates almost exclusively on Sunday.
Has anyone ever accused them – any of them – of being nonreligious?
Apparently now, all you have to do is have the nerve to be Less-Than-Tebow for gold-lovin’ Marion to try to faith-unheal you.
