When you think of Fox News' Monica Crowley, the word piety doesn't immediately come to mind. One wouldn't think that the ever snarling Crowley, who compared Hillary Clinton to Glen Close in "Fatal Attraction" and Barack Obama to former dictator Hosni Mubarak (for deciding not to defend the "Defense of Marriage" Act), was a bride of Christ? But despite her willingness to engage in some rather non-Christian character attacks, she is, as one of Ailes' stable of right wing Christians and Catholics, part of the Fox News Tim Tebow cult that focuses on Tebow's devout Christianity.That's not newsworthy. But who knew that Crowley, who specializes in defamatory comments towards lots of folks she deems anathama (especially Barack Obama), would be quoting scripture and testifying for Jesus and, of course, Tim Tebow who, on Fox, is a god. Can somebody give me an amen!
As you know, Tim Tebow has become one of the major topics on Fox News. Obviously Fox's meme of Christian victimhood is also part of Fox Business where Tebow is also a topic for discussion that is centered, as it is on Fox "News," on how he's hated and mocked by evil libruls. On Friday, during the Stuart Varney show, resident and only official Fox clergyman Father Jonathan Morris talked about Tebow's awesomeness and how unfair it is that he's criticized for thanking God. As Morris spoke, a true testament to American stupidity appeared as a Fox statistic which noted that 43% of people believe that God helps Tebow win. Good lord - I mean good Tim Tebow!
Fellow Catholic Monica Crowley, taking a page out of her old catechism, responded that Tebow is thanking God "for the blessings of the talents that God has given him that he can then put to good use" (just like Monica does on Fox?)." She said that she is "taken with this story" about how, for years, he applied face paint with John 3:16, the meaning of which she then summarized. (Wonder if she can explain those other quotes about helping thy neighbor and not casting stones...???) Her trademark sneer noticeably absent, she positively glowed as she talked about how Tebow wore the quote for years and now, mirabile dictu, his stats against the Steelers and the television rating for the game related to 316. She chuckeled as she shouted, "Now Father, come on." To his credit, Fox's favorite (and only) "frock" wearer responded "coincidence."
What more can I say other than go in peace, thanks be to Tim Tebow.
And BTW, does God love Tom Brady more than Tim Tebow? Go Pats!
What part of ’it’s not about Tebow’ don’t you understand? The kid’s,I feel,honest religious beliefs being hijacked by fundamentalist nutjobs? He’s out there to play football,and I bet good money he never thought he’d be the poster boy for the white hood set.
People are so defensive over this kid.
However,people are making more of this than what’s there. Football teams used to pray before,and in half time of every game. Why didn’t they get the big Christian Taliban push?
It’s not about God,and it’s not about Tebow imo. It’s about in-your-face Chritianity,militant Christianity. All style and no substance.

Keep your religious arrogance to yourself, Timmy. Didn’t you learn your lesson the other day.? Was God punishing you for not paying attention to his instructions about praying in public?
