The Associated Press reported this week that the ad’s theme will be “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life,” with Pam Tebow sharing the story of her difficult 1987 pregnancy -- instead of getting an abortion she decided to give birth to Tebow, the now-famous quarterback who went on to become a Heisman Trophy winner, leading the Gators to two BCS wins.
Gary Schneeberger, Focus on the Family spokesman, told ABC News he couldn’t comment on the content of the ad. However, he said his organization has always viewed the Tebows as “strong, committed Christians” who have inspirational family stories to tell.Read it all here.
Doug Hagin of the Daley Gator has a post on this today. He writes:
I must say, however, that recently, I have found another reason to say that it is, as we Gators say, Great to be a Gator! Tim Tebow, who during his four years as Florida QB, delivered two national championships, and a Heisman, and an South Eastern Conference record 48 wins, has always shared his faith openly, and in a manner that shows the very best of the Christian faith. His play on the field, and his mission work off of it has been a blessing to many, not just us Gator fans. Standing on your principles and beliefs can do that. And Tebows’ latest stand makes me as proud of him as any other deed he has done.Now enter the controversial aspects of the Tebow's sharing. According to the Daley Gator, a coalition of women's groups have called on CBS to scrap the ad. The Gator quotes Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, as saying the ad is "terribly offensive."
Not aborting children in the womb is "terribly offensive"? Abortion is what is terribly offensive, as are radical feminist groups like NOW, in my opinion.
