Hateful fundies are all in a dither, and as one loon wrote on his blog "packing bags to go see and hear Tim Tebow in Dallas in April." Yeah, right! Just don't let the HATE entrance door bang you in the balls on the way in, Sparky!
As reported in The Denver Post this morning ('Tebow Must Audible Out of This Play', p. 1B) Tebow plans to make an appearance April 28 at the First Baptist Church of Dr. Robert Jeffress.
The Post writer is dismayed by Timmy's obnoxious choice of venue, and cites the words of Gregg Doyel of CBS Sports:
'Tim Tebow is about to make the biggest mistake of his life. Tebow has agreed to speak at a hateful Baptist preacher's church, an EVANGELICAL CRETIN named Robert Jeffress, who does the work of the lord sort of like Westboro Baptist in Topeka, Kan., does the work of the lord."
Doyel goes on to note that while Jeffress isn't quite as bad as Prime Hater Fred Phelps of Westboro (i.e. picketing the funerals of fallen soldiers with signs of "HELL BOUND!") he is still pretty bad. He believes, like another "pastor" we all know who ran a rancid hate blog until he was chased off by death threats, that:
- AIDS is an exclusively 'gay disease' so provides a basis for the military to exclude any homosexual,
-Jews, homosexuals, and Catholics are all going to "Hell" - some (e.g. Jews and homosexuals) faster than others.
- The Catholic Church is a "Satanic cult"
- Islam is a religion that "promotes pedophilia"
Now where have we seen all this bollocks before? Hmmmm.....let me think. I think the primary clue is a a blog that once bore the giveaway initials "P. M". A blog (and linked Facebook page) that once idiotically proposed all atheists be placed on lists "similar to sex offenders" so people that are godly would know where the "Satan loving" reside. Of course, once the atheist web got hold of that, they beseiged his sorry ass and within 2 nanoseconds he high-tailed and shut his blog down.
Anyway, I understand this same doofus plans to travel to Big D to see Tebow, and likely hobnob with Jeffress. Well, what can I say? I guess cretins of a feather flock together!
Meanwhile, the D. Post author of the original column remarks:
"I simply can't imagine Tebow knowing the stuff that Jeffress has said and Tebow saying, 'Yep, that's where I want to go!'"
The author adds:
"It simply doesn't make sense he would risk all he's done just to make one speech."
Yeah, but see, in many ways money can do a lot to wreck supposed principles! Even for a fundie!
But perhaps the most salient words are the ones that ended the piece:
"After a season on the sidelines, Timmy, the ball's in your hands! Better not fumble this one!"
