Per “Profootballtalk” : Some guy supposedly said “Shut the f**# up!” and others supposedly laughed. That may or not be true, and is not even particularly interesting to me. What is interesting is the comment section after the article. All the hostile heathens and atheists came out like flies to bovine excrement. Some examples:
“Haha. Sanctimonious zealot.” “Throw his ass to the lions.” “hahahahahahahaha, awesome. he couldn’t just pray to himself? self-righteous prick. (yes, it is possible for someone who gives all the credit to god to still be self-righteous).”
“Thump the bible at home Tebow. Most people don’t want to hear that shit!! .. including this guy.”
“Said one of the other players in response: “Shut the f–k up.” Others players in the room then laughed.” “hahahahahaha, awesome.”
“f’ing A dude, you’re hurting your cause by being such a freaking pharisee type. Makes you wonder why so many people won’t be sad when his get butt handed to him on a crucifix.”
Someone find that unnamed player and give him a medal.
“He should pray for a professional throwing motion. It won’t help, but as long as he wants to be a delusional nitwit he might as well go “full-Christian”.”
“Hey Tim, God doesn’t give a sh!t about you scoring high on the wonderlic, or your football career, so shut the fk up man!”
“…any adult who babbles on in public about their imaginary friend in the sky should expect to have such nonsense ridiculed and laughed at…i guess “shut the f*ck up” would also get the point across!”
“Religion is a festering boil on the ass of progress.”
“As much as I want to believe this story, it reeks of false rumor. Would he really request a prayer service in such a scenario. I think Tebow’s a douche, but he’s not that stupid.”
And on and on and on and on they went. Imagine if they talked that way about a faggot. Or a Muslim. Or made fun of a guy because he is black. Or because he is an atheist. Sometimes it seems as though Christians are the only fair game to make fun of.
UPDATE: Oh, geesh. Godless heathen flushed out, and Tim Tebow didn’t even say what they say he said…
