My brother is kind of awesome.

My whole family has a real way with words.  My brother always said exactly what I wanted to say in the space of a few sentences.

About JT Eberhard

    The big difference is this: You cannot live in this country and not know about Christianity. Its the dominant religion, and its followers are doing everything they can to force everyone to adhere to it. We know about it, and we’re tired of it.

    Being openly gay is something that still takes courage. Non-closeted people are still actively persecuted and treated as second class citizens. It takes balls to do what Collins did. What Tebow did was just making a show of himself.

      Sadly, it takes courage to be openly gay in a sport culture filled with machismo, in part because of the idiocy of the rabid Tebow fans.

      Tebow and his grandstanding appeals to those especially self-indulgent, ignorant, over-privileged beasts of Christians who imagine in their most desperate fantasies that they are being persecuted for “being Christian” in America. Everybody wants to be the underdog, and they are absolutely convinced that they, because their bigoted bleating and pandering isn’t applauded anymore and their dominance is being slowly dismantled via loss of numbers and growing distaste for religious involvement in government, are it and not the people who really are: the people these “loving servants of Christ” have been doing their damndest to destroy and dehumanize for half a century.

      I noticed that on a few different Patheos blogs. I wonder if they have a bot combing the site?
