Bill Hemmer and Fr. Jonathan Morris are hot, hot, hot for the hunky and very Christian Tim Tebow. But it's strictly biblical cuz Hemmer and Morris, as devout Catholics, would never engage in anything connected to base carnality. Rather, they love Tebow for his being an awesome Christian who frequently engages in the kinds of ostentatious Jesus praising that is so beloved in real Merka and the reason why, on Fox "News," Tebow has attained deity like status. Back in January, Hemmer and Morris were engorged with the fire of the Holy Spirit as they rapped about Tebow. And following Tebow's Christ like preaching to the Texas masses, on Sunday, Hemmer and Morris got positively orgasmic (in the spiritual sense, of course) about Tebow and other Christian sports role models. Not only did Hemmer and Morris articulate their reverence for Tebow; but while they spoke, the audience was able to pray to photos of Tebow, Tebowing, which were displayed on the news desk video screen.
On yesterday's "America's Newsroom," Hemmer could hardly contain his excitement as he spoke of how Tebow drew a huge crowd to an outdoor service on Easter Sunday. Video of Tebow walking on water preaching about Jesus joy was shown. Fox resident priest and only clergyperson (no librul "non-Catholics" on America's Catholic newsroom) Fr. Jonathan Morris talked about a "wave" of sports "cultural icons" who are Jesus BFF's. He mentioned how when the Knicks' Jeremy Lin came out of surgery he immediately tweeted "praise Jesus Christ for successful surgery" and how Bubba Watson did a little Christian preaching after his Masters win. (Where's Tiger when you need him!) Hemmer, looking very serious, said that it's apparent that Watson is a "deeply rooted Christian." Morris added, to the aforementioned "icons," the Pope and Cardinal Dolan who is an example of "joyful, happy Christianity and clear spoken." (Right, fighting contraception coverage and gay marriage are such "joyful" things!) He claimed people are now unafraid to flaunt their Christianity.
Morris did a little homily about the awesomeness of how Tebow criticized other sports figures for being bad role models. To Hemmer's scripted question about whether Tebow was being judgmental, Morris responded that Tebow was just "speaking clearly" about how those in the public eye, such as business people and journalists, are role models. (Something that Bill O'Reilly wasn't worried about when he was talking dirty on the telephone?) Christian patriot Hemmer worked in the bogus Christian right meme about America as a "Christian nation" when he read a Tebow quote about how "first and foremost is what this country is based on, one nation under God the more that we get back to that." Hemmer noted that Tebow was interrupted by applause at that point in his sermon. (Guess Tebow didn't take any college history classes about the role of the secular "Enlightenment" in the framing of our nation's political system.)
Morris enthused that Tebow is "on a mission" and that he would love to see those from other religions and no religion "standing up for what they believe is for the good of society" because "there's no reason to be afraid of your values." In a soft and reverential voice, professional Catholic (and they are legion at Fox) Hemmer intoned "it's OK to be outspoken about your faith, said Tebow" and that might be why he came "to the number one media market in Americaand the world because the platform is much greater for him." Morris suggested that Tebow might be tempted by the NY social scene. Hemmer said that it's interesting that "three of the greatest athletes in the world" are part of this new public promotion of faith and asked where this would lead. The scene faded to black as Hemmer and Morris breathlessly gushed Happy Easter wishes to each other. (America's Newsroom as an occasion of sin? Oh, saints preserve us...)
It's springtime and love is in the air....And word to Hemmer and Morris about public proclamations of faith: "And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward." Matthew 6:5
An please Tebow/Morris/Hemmer, if the US is based on “… one nation under God …” we have to understand that 1954 was the year America was established *. Stop the fumbling piety and lies, morons.
- The Pledge has been modified four times since its composition, with the most recent change adding the words “under God” in 1954
Yeah, because FoxNoise is so welcoming of those “from other religions and no religion” who “stand up for what they believe is for the good of society.” Remind me again of FoxNoise’s stance when atheists try to remove Ten Commandments monuments or statues of Jeebus from public property. I don’t think that “love” is the word that immediately comes to mind.
Or what of the Muslims who “stood up” for what “they believed was for the good of society” when they do silly things like apply for permits to build mosques in rural Tennessee or downtown Manhattan? I don’t recall much FoxNoise “love” being shown for these folks who were displaying THEIR “values.”
I guess what Sr—I mean, Fr—Morris means by “values” is “values that coincide with good Christian, preferably Roman Catholic, values.” None others need apply. (By the way, Fr PowerBottom, maybe you could understand that same-sex couples stood up for THEIR values—values of love and family—yet you and your masters* didn’t really express much “love” when they displayed their values.)
*By “masters,” read into that whatever you want. His hierarchal superiors, his FoxNoise bosses, the rough trade he picks up to treat him like the little powerbottom he is.
