Look, there seems to be a lot of confusion going around right now about what is and is not courageous when it comes to NFL football. As a public service announcement, we’d like to clear things up.
When you publicly announce or advertise your Christianity, effectively shoving it down people’s throats despite the fact that it has nothing to do with football, calling all of this attention to yourself based purely on the mere fact that you want everyone to know that you are Christian…… the verdict is: VERY COURAGEOUS.
Rush Limbaugh: Tebow showed courage.
Sean Hannity: What a courageous young man.
“Before It’s News”: Tim Tebow is blessed and courageous! It takes courage to be biblical!
On the other hand, when you publicly announce or advertise your homosexuality, effectively shoving it down people’s throats despite the fact that it has nothing to do with football, calling all of this attention to yourself based on the mere fact that you want everyone to know that you are homosexual…… the verdict is: NOT COURAGEOUS.
Rush Limbaugh: Announcing that you like to have sex with another man is not courageous!
Sean Hannity: This has nothing to do with football. Why are we even talking about this?
Some other minor radio host in Dallas: Who cares? I don’t want to know what he does in his spare time. It’s not courageous to throw it in our faces.
You see, ladies and gentlemen, it take real courage to let people know that you are a Christian. Christians, who make up 76% of the population in the United States, are completely shut out of the mainstream. Since every single President since Andrew Johnson and the vast majority of all politicians have always been Christian, it’s pretty clear that admitting to being a Christian is a shameful thing that people want to avoid.
It does NOT take courage, on the other hand, to let people know that you are a member of a minority group that regularly are victims of actual physical hate crimes and constantly suffer from teasing and ostracizing. It especially doesn’t take courage in organizations like the NFL, where there are coaches who have said that all gay people should be shipped to an island and nuked.
I mean, why would you think that takes courage? That’s just stupid.
