Ed Norris: Tebow Double Standard
We have all heard about the stir Tim Tebow has caused when he has outward displays of faith. “Tebowing” is now in the vernacular (tebowing.com) and former players have come out and stated that they could do without his religious displays.
While I am no fan of his I must admit I think he is a victim of an obvious double standard. If he were thanking a different deity do you think anyone would be making fun of him as the Detroit Lions did? Why is it when Mike Tyson thanked Allah after converting to Islam there wasn’t this much of an uproar?
How did Christianity become a punchline? And why is it OK?
