    Ironic in this diary slamming a closed-minded Texas preacher that the bulk of the comments jump to the conclusion that Mr Tebow decided to cancel only because it might cost him money. Prejudice is prejudice.

      you're being contrarian just for the sake of being contrarian.

      Tebow sure as hell knew what Focus On The Family's message was when he did that SB commercial, didn't he? His public posturing has been about as right-wing as it's possible to be in pro sports. (Other comparisons worth considering: John Rocker, Tim Thomas, Luke Scott.)

      It's not just endorsement money that he's at risk of losing....for the time being he's still signed with the Jets. Presumably ownership/mgmt leaned on him. It may not have really been his decision to cancel. NFL contracts are not necessarily guaranteed....if he gets cut from the roster, he could stand to lose all or part of his salary in addition to all those endorsement deals. His roster status is in enough jeopardy anyway for on-field reasons as it is.

        I see anti-religious bigotry on Daily Kos all the time. And no, I am not personally a religious person. I recjon you'd fuck up that bit of mind-reading too, so let's just save us some time.
