    Unless you have money on the game!

    @SP, Tebow’s not a great quarterback……OMFG! How dare you!! Lol!


    Chrisleez said: Why do you say that? Because he believes in Je.sus Ch.rist?Do you say that about all sports athletes that make the sign of the cross and look up into heav.en?

    I rest my case…..

    I would never lump a good Christian with the right wing nut conservative extremist. There is a world of difference between good true Christians and right wing nut conservative extremist. Similar difference between a Muslim and a Jihadist.

  • ninja

    If they fire quarterbacks for their religios beliefs the red states be flooded with them.

  • Sicilian Papa



    I like Tim, I think he a nice guy and I don’t have a problem with him wearing his faith on his sleeve. To each his own.

    If he wants to be a great quarterback he needs to shorten his delivery. He takes too long to get rid of the ball. He’s tough guy and his Christian living keeps his body in top shape. He will find another calling if football doesn’t work out. He did have a few MIRACLE wins in his short career.

  • Doug Z

    Tebow’s not a great quarterback. If John Elway say he is not. He is not.

  • Jeff

    @ninja, wtf are you talking about, who said he was fired for his religious beliefs?

    He has gotten the shaft twice now by two major teams. I just knew if I posted that he was canned by the NY Jets it would make the Religious freaks angry in some bizarre way….and it did. I find some of the things they say offensive.

    Its Sauce for the goose, I say!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Chriscee: I was going to write the very same question(s) you had asked up above the Tebow post. BTW, you CAn spell out Jesus Christ and God with a big ‘G’.

  • Jeff

    @Doug Z
    Tebow’s not a great quarterback. If John Elway say he is not. He is not.

    ROTFLMFAO!!! Now that’s funny!

    If I only had money! haaha

  • Doug Z

    This just in: Fox News said investigation is coming Benghazi AGIAN–this time to because Hillary is responsible

  • Doug Z

    I think pretty much everyone knows that Fox News is a Conservative News organization and that MSNBC is a Liberal News organization…I don’t even that’s in question.

    The point I was making is that the ratings of Fox News, Limbaugh, and other Conservative talk show hosts were irrelevant in getting a Republican in the oval office.

    Because the deck is sacked, all other drive by media is cover for the Dems. alphabet media is all lib.

  • Jeff

    @Doug Z This just in: Fox News said investigation is coming Benghazi AGIAN–this time to because Hillary is responsible

    ROTFLMAO!! Now that’s the funniest!!


  • Doug Z

    Their job is number one to make money.”
    Left wing makes no money because there is to many of them

    And that’s why they continue to fail. They (CNN and MSNBC & left-wing radio hosts) will say and do anything to make money. If it means going to the extreme right of where they once were, no problem…as long as it makes them more money. If it means hurting their party by alienating key voting groups, no problem…as long as it makes them more money. So yes, they made themselves more money but in the end they hurt their own Party and cost themselves what should’ve been an easy victory in 2012.

  • Doug Z

    Poor grasshopper couldn’t pass a high school entrance exam but he could be suckered by MSNBC

  • Sicilian Papa

    NBA player Jason Collins came out of the closet.

    He always did have a nose for the ball.

    Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

  • Jeff

    @SP, took me a second…..but I got it!

  • Ralph Hahn

    For those of you without a single clue about religion because…maybe you’re an atheist?…listen up:

    Having you own personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you are a Christian. Christianity is a ‘collection’ of different religious faiths and beliefs. But, as a whole, it is NOT a religion. Being Catholic, Baptist or Mormons, etc. are religions. Setting aside one-hour in church every Sunday morning may make you religious but not a person of strong faith.

    Christian faith is…worshipping God and HIS rules from the Holy Bible. Religion, sometimes, put’s more importance on church laws than God’s laws.

    I don’t criticize anyone’s ‘faith’. If that’s what you strongly believe, be prepared to follow Jesus Christ’s NEW Commandment, or a portion of: “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” It is NOT intended to literally Love Your Neighbor. A person in Dublin or Rome could be your neighbor.

    I don’t mean to preach, but when we have too many people saying so much on a subject they know nothing about, it’s time to speak out for your faith.

  • Jeff

    @Dreamer, I left The Church in 2004 after the Priest of my Church and many like him gave a “wink and a nod” support to a War Criminal President. As time has passed I know I miss going as the weekly reflection has a positive affect on my weekly dealings.

    I know we are not supposed to allow anyone to interfere with our relationship with GOD, but I feel that Organized Religion has become nothing more than another political party filled with corruption and evil. The people tend to be good but the leaders are typically more money grubbing @ssholes

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “Because the deck is sacked, all other drive by media is cover for the Dems. alphabet media is all lib.”

    How is the deck stacked when according to the right-wingers nobody watches Liberal News…lol. You guys can’t make up your minds.

  • Mark2

    @Ralph Hahn

    Sorry dude, but Christianity is a religion just like Islam and Judaism are religions.

    Catholicism, Protestantism, Lutheranism, Pentacostalism, Baptists, etc are all denominations of Christianity.
