Pat Robertson, who somehow managed to stay out of Conservative Babylon for nine years, suddenly can’t seem to escape these unholy halls. If he’s not endorsing non-procreative molar-rattling or pushing for pot legalization, he’s coming thisclose to saying an imprecatory prayer* against Peyton Manning because he doesn’t like the “shabby” way his boy, incurable and thoroughly obnoxious Bible-beater Tim Tebow, has been treated. (That tellls you how invasive the name Tim Tebow is; we can’t stand football, and try to know as little about it as possible, but we certainly know who Tebow is. And we’re sick to death of him** and his hypocritical grandstanding for Jesus, while he oppresses women and props up organizations that exist solely for the sake of persecuting gay people.***)
Not that Pat scrunched his face into that terminally-constipated look he gets when he prays and implored The Dear Lord to bring permanent paralysis down on Mr. Manning or anything like that, but he did say this on his moribund TV show, “The 700 Club,” as quoted by Fox Sports:
“And you just ask yourself, OK, so Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he’s been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right.”
Fox Sports, to its credit, adds: “Tebow, who has become one of the most polarizing players in NFL history partly due to his devout Christian faith, led Denver on an improbable run to the AFC West title last season after the team started the season 1-4. But the former Heisman Trophy winner’s 46.5 completion percentage last season placed significant doubt on his ability to become a prototypical NFL quarterback.”
Without knowing what this “run” is, or this “AFC West” thing is, we take it Mr. Tebow has peaked in sporting prowess, and is now on a downhill slide, to, we hope, well-deserved oblivion. It would serve him right.
Wouldn’t it, Pat?
* “Imprecatory prayer is prayer asking God to kill, maim, curse, send into eternal damnation, or otherwise harm an enemy.” Among American fundamentalists, think of it as bad juju with white buck shoes.
** Bingo: “No card-carrying Tebow-hater like me has that much of a problem with Tim Tebow as a person. On his own, Tebow is a fairly harmless little goody-goody. And this Broncos run has been fun to watch. I even like it when Eisen and Deion do the TEBOW chant on the postgame show. It’s all the
*** “While Tim Tebow has not publicy spoke out against same-sex marriage and LGBT equality, he has worked with anti-gay and anti-choice extremist group, “Focus on the Family.’ In 2010, Tebow appeared in an anti-choice video for the radical conservative group. Not much is actually known publicy about Tebow and his thoughts on LGBT equality because the subject is off limits as was noted by Washington Post writer, Sally Quinn. Focus on the Family is very critical of equality in the LGBT community and has even stated on the record that there is ‘no evidence’ that gays and lesbians are discriminated against in society. While Tebow’s stance on LGBT equality is questionable, his positon on women’s rights is crystal clear. ” — Robert Sobel, “Tim Tebow and the fascination with a questionable figure,” Examiner.com, December 26, 2011
Actually, FOF has been more than “very critical”; it’s a major hate group that tells vicious lies about gay people. “No one has spread the anti-gay gospel as widely, or with as much political impact, as James Dobson, the former child development professor and spanking enthusiast who founded Focus on the Family (FOF) in 1977. … Dobson’s radio show, dispensing homespun parenting advice along with jabs at ‘the militant homosexual agenda,’ is heard daily on more than 9,000 radio stations worldwide, giving him an estimated listening audience of more than 200 million. … As early as 1989, Dobson came under attack from a fellow conservative evangelical, U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, who accused him of ‘reprehensible’ and ‘homophobic’ use of false information about how AIDS is transmitted. … Among the scores of anti-gay commentaries, stories and products on FOF’s Web site is a Dobson essay that strikes a typical note: ‘Moms and Dads, are you listening? This movement is the greatest threat to your children. It is of particular danger to your wide-eyed boys, who have no idea what demoralization is planned for them.’ Another article claims that ‘the homosexual agenda is a beast. It wants our kids.” Read on…
