Tis the season for the War on Christmas, and hating Christians everywhere! Oh, and yah, and did you know critics of Tim Tebow are just like the segregationists who opposed the Civil Rights Movement?
That’s the illogic of Fox News for you, my friends. In this article, “Why are anti-Christian bigots so eager to prey on Tim Tebow?,” Todd Starnes compares Anthony Bradley, a professor of ethics at an evangelical school (whose black), of being like Bull Connor for criticizing Tim Tebow.
“Perhaps the good professor would suggest Christians enter restaurants through the back door and use separate drinking fountains?”
Ummmmm. What, come again, Todd? Who brought up race in all of this? This is about religion, right? Oh wait. Let’s make that white privileged move to compare every struggle to the Civil Rights movement.
It’s so funny how Mr. Starnes can compare Bradley to pro-segregationists (even though he is black, right?) when Starnes ends his post with a rather racialized conclusion:
“At the end of the day, though, which NFL star would you want your little boy idolizing? A dog killer? A guy who beats up his girlfriend? Someone who is communicable? Or a man who loves Jesus, helps orphans and builds hospitals for the needy?
I’ll take Tim Tebow in my huddle any day.”
HUmmmm, pray tell? Who is the Dog Killer? Oh, and Someone that is communicable? You mean someone who is not those inarticulate, uneducated black athletes, like Michael Vick, right?
I hope Tim Tebow fans can call out Starnes for his racially biased defense of #tebowing.
