Honestly, I don’t know if this is farce or tragedy or a little bit of both, but this Super Bowl Ad featuring Tim Tebow is certainly making a mark, even before it airs.
Bookworm, a classical liberal still living and working (under some cover) in a “progressive” enclave has declared that Tebow is the sort of man she’d like her daughter to date:
I can’t think of a better lesson for young people. And that’s why I want my daughter to date a man like Tebow: someone who has principles every mother can love, and who, in a culture obsessed with sex, is proud of those principles.
Incidentally, despite the fact that 99% of the families in my ultra liberal community would draw back in revulsion at the thought of their child dating an evangelical Christian, I can guarantee you that 100% of them would be dancing on air if they knew that their daughter’s date, because of a deep commitment to and reverence for women and the sanctity of marriage, wasn’t trying to get his hands in their daughter’s pants.
You’ll want to read the whole thing. Bookie has some thoughts about the failures of sex-education programs, which are interesting in light of this report that Obama is cutting funding for those sex ed programs that include teaching abstinence which, um, even the Washington Post admits, seem to be more effective.
Directly after reading Bookworm’s thoughtful and mature take on Tebow and the whole brouhaha, which defines the tragedy of a society out of alignment with common sense, a reader sent along this bit of pathetic farce.
The post makes a point of the fact that last week Newsweek and other mainstream outlets tried to portray the pro-life movement as “aging”, when it is anything but.
Meanwhile -and here is your language warning, so stop reading if you can’t take a swearword – say hello to the perpetual adolescents who have chosen a nursery rhyme (complete with the word “bullshit”! Look at us! We’re saying “bullshit!”) to make their tired point. Really, it’s so pathetic that it’s sad. These women are clearly reliving a glory day: “We’re speaking truth to power and daring to say ‘bullshit,’ because we’re edgy and daring and so counter-cultural! Oh, 1968, why did you ever, ever leave us? Why can’t we recapture those glorious days!”
Also, do read Msgr. Charles Pope and his thoughts on how Modesty is reverence for mystery -something we used to understand.
