Apparently Tim Tebow is a Christian. I wouldn’t know; he’s never matched up against my teams, but this annoys atheists, except our good friend Allahpundit. Separation of Church and Football Players is in the Constitution, it seems.

But our other good friend Jammie Wearing Fool warns things could get much more serious. He quotes someone I hesitate to shoot traffic to (so enjoy his awesome site instead):
If Tebow wins the Super Bowl, against all odds, it will buoy his faithful, and emboldened faithful can do insane things, like burning mosques, bashing gays and indiscriminately banishing immigrants. While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.
The rest of the rant is pure yummy goodness for those of us who love watching libs beclown themselves. Read the whole thing.
But remember this: This many years into the War on Terror, the only anti-Muslim violence in the US has been a few sponsors pulling out from All-American Muslim, because it was a third-rate reality show. We’re a tolerant people. We welcome people who want to be here. That should include welcoming pretty darned good quarterbacks who are also Christians.
