If only Muslims would Tebow

Liberal talk show host Bill Press had this to say about Colorado's own Tim Tebow.

He went on to phrase his complaints with Tebow's unabashed religiosity:

By dragging God into every football game, Tebow makes a mockery of Christianity — and trivializes religion. The truth is, God doesn’t care who wins an election, a bingo game, or a football game. Sorry, Tebow, Jesus is not a Broncos fan.

Now, if you’re one of the silly millions of Americans who loves Tebow’s in-your-face kind of Christianity, consider this. What if he were a devout Muslim, who bowed to Mecca after every touchdown and shouted “Allahu Akbar?”

Somehow, I don’t think we’d be celebrating him as a national hero.

It's a fair question.

Just consider the lashing that Lowe's took when it had the audacity to advertise on a TV show that presented American Muslims as — oh dear god — normal people. Or the blowback after Rep. Keith Ellison, a Muslim, had the nerve to place his hand on a Quran in the photo recreation of his swearing-in to the U.S. House. Or the outcry in 2008 when a supposedly closeted Muslim was running for office.

Meanwhile, reporters at the Gazette give a bend to the knee in honor of Tebowing. (Perhaps they are just celebrating the fact that they are still employed.)
