Seems that the group, Focus on the Family, may be telling a little white lie. With their much ballyhooed Tim Tebow choose life Superbowl Ad.
The story about his mothers possible, or offered, abortion in the Philippines may just be a tad untrue. Seems that abortion was illegal at the time and any doctor suggesting one could have faced death.
Interesting how the Christians can manipulate the truth when it fits the fact/story they wish to convey. Kind of like the bible too. Appears they have been doing it for quite a long time.

The reason I watch the Superbowl is for the commercials. Although I am actually supporting a team this year too! Go Saints!!
Anyway..... I do not want to be bombarded with information about God, fetuses, Christianity and the like.
I know that money talks and they were probably hurting for revenue during this weak economy, but I want to have fun and laugh, I do not want to have someone else's moral etc. rammed down my throat. I will either watch so I have something else to blog and bitch about, or I'll just leave the room or change the channel.

Kudos to Maureen Dowd, of New York Times, for writing an excellent editorial/article about the two conservative, Republican gentlemen who are now fighting the good fight on behalf of gay marriage!
Ted Olson and David Boies are fighting the good fight on behalf of those who continue to get besmirched by those calling down the power of heaven and hell to disallow them the same rights, as human beings, that the rest of us are allowed.

"Legalizing same-sex marriage would also be a recognition of basic American principles, and would represent the culmination of our nation's commitment to equal rights. It is, some have said, the last major civil-rights milestone yet to be surpassed in our two-century struggle to attain the goals we set for this nation at its formation."
YES! Newsweek has an excellent article about California's Prop 8 that would legalize gay marriage. It is about time.
Ted Olson, a lifelong conservative Republican, has joined the ranks of those who support the initiative. He is taking a good deal of crap for doing so. I applaud and respect his guts for going against the natural grain of his own party. I am thrilled that he sees the value.
"Many of my fellow conservatives have an almost knee-jerk hostility toward gay marriage. This does not make sense, because same-sex unions promote the values conservatives prize. Marriage is one of the basic building blocks of our neighborhoods and our nation. At its best, it is a stable bond between two individuals who work to create a loving household and a social and economic partnership. We encourage couples to marry because the commitments they make to one another provide benefits not only to themselves but also to their families and communities. Marriage requires thinking beyond one's own needs. It transforms two individuals into a union based on shared aspirations, and in doing so establishes a formal investment in the well-being of society. The fact that individuals who happen to be gay want to share in this vital social institution is evidence that conservative ideals enjoy widespread acceptance. Conservatives should celebrate this, rather than lament it."
"This bedrock American principle of equality is central to the political and legal convictions of Republicans, Democrats, liberals, and conservatives alike"

Pat Robertson needs a good flogging! Has this man no tact?
'In short, Robertson claimed that the quake was divine retribution for a pact with the devil that was sworn long ago...... '
Why doesn't someone just tell him that he needs to shut up!
He continues to open his mouth and spew absolute crap and then pins it on people's lack of God in their lives. Personally, I can't think of anything that would turn me more away from organized religion, or God, than Pat Robertson and his ilk.

As someone who has never been model thin I was thrilled to see that someone was finally using models/beautiful women who are a far cry from stick-like! It's about time that the clothing industry/fashion folks got a good look at who the real women are and maybe make clothes for all of us! There are a few fashion lines that I have looked at and their largest size is a medium!!
'In the '00s, the fashion industry talked the talk about curvaceous models. In the '10s, it might actually walk the walk.
The upcoming issue of V magazine, on newsstands Jan. 14, features a bevy of Botticelli-bodied beauties, flaunting their figures in everything from cut-out Gucci bathing suits to bottom-hugging Guess jeans to nothing but red lipstick, gold jewels and a pair of heels.'
Some magazines have been known to use computer work to minimize the size of Kelly Clarkson and Demi Moore on their covers. Clarkson raised hell after Self Magazine did it to her and many were happy to hear it.. There is nothing wrong with hat girls size and it was good to hear her put these fashion people in their place!"Body size. Presently, it's a subject of great debate in the fashion industry. In one corner, editors are calling for an end to size zero clothing samples; in the other, designers are whittling down the women in their ad campaigns to cartoonish proportions. Everyone, it seems, has voiced his or her opinion on the issue, making it one of the most highly blogged and heavily Twittered about topics of the day. Here's our stance: big, little, pint-sized, plus-sized -- every body is beautiful. And this issue is out to prove it."
Tiger Woods may need many things in his life, but the suggestion of Brit Hume that what he needs is Christianity is a big, fat joke! Really Mr. Hume? Just another arrogant example of a Christian that feels that his way is the right way and it is the balm for every one's woes.
I have yet to find any use for it during any personal strife. It never did anything for me when I used it and now that I am free of its stranglehold I am free to think for myself and make my own decisions.
Tiger and his wife have many decisions ahead of them, but none that I see God stepping in to. The arrogant Christians should try and keep their opinions inside their churches and sheeple hordes. The evening news is not the place to state your personal religious views. You haven't heard any prominent Atheists coming forward to offer them advice. If I were to offer any it would be," Deal with it on your own terms and tell everyone else to butt out"!
