Tebow Can STFU

abortion, religion, tim tebow, football,
I love it when right wing idealogues tell me what I think. The fact that I am never, ever thinking that makes it all the more fun.

The last few days, I've seen more than 5 people tell me that I want Tim Tebow dead. The logic is that Tim's mother, suffering from dysentery, was told to abort him and refused. The fact that I support her right to have a decision to make in that situation supposedly means that I want Tim dead.

I don't want Tim Tebow dead. I want him to shut the fuck up. About everything. When I watch football (and I love football), I want to hear about passes, completions, interceptions and touchdowns. I don't want to hear about your religion, your mother or your opinion on abortion.

Unfortunately, with Tim Tebow involved, I can't stop hearing about his religion, his mother and his opinion on abortion. Quite frankly, I couldn't care less about Tim's opinion on abortion. He is welcome to never have an abortion, ever, but he can keep his opinion out of my uterus.

That is all.


  1. Two thoughts.

    First, we need equal coverage of the stories in which an obviously-malformed embryo was needlessly (cruelly) allowed to go full term, resulting in a baby born with multiple serious problems... which the baby and her/his family were then forced to deal with (regardless of their wants, needs, or ability to care for/pay for the requisite special equipment, professionals, etc.). We need to hear *more* about those whose quality of life is basically nil--who would end it all, were it in their power--and *less* (MUCH less) about the overpaid exceptions to the rule (see, Tebow).

    And my second thought? I only want bona fide, certified, atheist doctors from here on out, 'kay? 'Cause no one, but NO ONE, needs to be inserting Jeezus into my vagina on the end of a cold speculum, or down my throat on one of those pesky wooden tongue depressors, or into my *anything*.

  2. I wouldn't mind if he was dead. Maybe that scholarship would have gone to someone who wasn't a total retard.

  3. PF,

    You'll be pleased to know (or maybe not), that one of my online fundie-acquaintances, theoldadam, agrees with you.

    He doesn't want this commercial aired at the Superbowl either (because religion/politics should be kept out of sports) and fair play to him; for a global warming-denying fundie - that's quite an impressively rational stance to take, eh?

    He ruins it, somewhat, when he points out that airing this commercial would only open the floodgates for teh gheyz to air their homo-agenda next year and he doesn't want that. In fact, his exact words were;

    “I am not looking foward [sic] when sporting events have ads depicting two beautiful women, with a close-up of their rings (married in Vermont, etc.), their two beautiful children, and the tagline…’Gay people should be allowed to love each other and be married, exactly as everyone else is.’"

    How lovely.

  4. Don't worry, it will be "Tebow, who?" in a year. The NFL does not suffer quarterbacks who can't through to live.

  5. I can't decide whether to slap him or clap for him.

    Really, though, can't I have one thing left uninfected with politics? What's next? The First Horseman of the Apocalypse pauses in his relentless pursuit of more things to kill, er, justice to lecture at me about abstinence?

  6. I love those bumper stickers that say "Smile! Your Mom Chose Life!"

    I really want to make up a batch of bumper stickers to slap just below them that say "BUT AT LEAST SHE HAD A CHOICE."

    Choosing not to have an abortion is what "choice" is all about.

  7. I have to admit, until this afternoon I had no idea who this guy was or why my cousins were so freaking excited about his commercial. I am very much less than thrilled. Can we please put up a commercial stating, "I got pregnant when I was 18 and had an abortion. Now I'm 30, successful, married and have two kids. I'm glad I chose the way I did." How would that fly?

  8. Wow I suck, quarterbacks who can't throw not through.

  9. PF, thanks for the link to the earlier blog entry. (I wasn't following you back then, so hadn't seen it yet.) That's just the kind of RL example I was imagining. (How tragic is it that the horrible sequence of events in that story didn't happen because the pregnant girl didn't *have* a choice... but because she made such a stupid, selfish, WRONG one?!)

  10. I don't have a problem with Christians or anything, but the way Tebow continually flaunts his religious choice in all of our faces is disgusting.


  11. IA. Timmy quit shoving your chritian agenda down Americas collective throat. It must be a drag having a complete douchebag on your team.
    And his mother "choose life" because no one was forcing her to have an abortion. But it's totes ok for women to be an incubator against her will!
