1. You have a point, but you could easily say the same thing about Tim Tebow

 

For the record I'm not a person of faith. I like Richard Dawkins a lot too. And I don't really follow the NFL or care much about the Broncos or Tim Tebow.

But I'm also puzzled by how much controversy he has generated. Radio host Joe Madison ('The Black Eagle,' for those who don't know about him) pointed out the other day that many black athletes have been publicly displaying their faith and connecting it to their performance for decades, but nobody has ever really cared much about that one way or another. So why the hullabaloo over Tebow? I think he has a point.

I honestly don't understand why Tebow is so controversial. He's a football player who's all about some Jesus. Maybe he takes it a bit further than most have, but it's still nothing new.
