Well, the atheists and God-haters suffered another setback this past weekend when Tim Tebow and the Broncos won their football game in stunning fashion over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Add to that group the Society of Women Abusers, of whom Ben Rothlisberger is one of their poster boys.
Most of the time sports are just, well, sports. Other times, as with Tim Tebow, it's a barometer of the culture. Ask a person how they feel about Tim Tebow and it will tell you alot about where they stand on many other issues. Those who like Tebow probably are sympathetic to the Christian faith, even if they're not necessarily church-goers. Additionally, they would probably agree that Hollywood is a cesspool and embrace traditional American values. Those who hate Tebow are more likely to resent traditional American values and probably embrace the creeping socialism of the Obama administration.
Let's have a quick snapshot:

As a father of two boys, it's refreshing to watch an athlete who loves God, is true to his convictions, isn't a womanizer/abuser (same thing), doesn't have 8 children from 4 different women, isn't out doing drugs after the game, doesn't drive drunk and kill people, and is good to his Momma.
