  1. It is hard to understand why the GOP likes to put its foot in its mouth (must like the taste of toes). Today some Republican is blathering on and on about rape.(Dude: shut up about rape OK?) The Republican party is lost like a duck hit on the head. It is dazed and doesn’t cannot find its way. I don’t see that changing for quite some time (if ever). #2 .. Southern Baptists: drop Calvinism (you know?) it is the 21st century people.. wake up. Stop stabbing yourself in the back. does anyone actually STUDY anything in college these days? Or do you just listen to B.S. and then get a B.S. degree?

      Nicely said Old Dude. I am almost certain these evangelical/fundamentalists are bat sh*t crazy, but if they will just keep it up full steam ahead, we will end up with republican lite or some other party that’s not just plain daffy.

      What’s clear is this group wants a theocracy, they just haven’t said it outright.

  2. Really, no reason to disparage Tebow’s skills. You could have left off “whose media wattage seems way out of proportion to his actual talent.” and made the same point — he is being vilified for his faith. Stick to religious news, not sports commentating.

    Dear AJ4Coco: It seems to me Tebow has been quite celebrated for his faith. But that’s beside the point here: He has not had much success at all in the NFL. That seems beyond dispute. No?
