Let's hope he doesn't take any opposing QB's head off. Don't need any 15 yard roughing penalties.
If he makes like Tebow and starts bowing towards Mecca in the end zone then it will be fully discussable in the football forum.
And if we start getting any one-subject male posters who claim to be female posters coming here like Christian Cat did, then will (hopefully) deal with that person quicker than we did with the female impersonating CC.
So, yes, we are on the lookout for "Moslem Mouse" right now.
Oh-oh he just got himself banned from the political forum.
Can't really agree with this. It was true when we were kids, but it's not true now. When we were kids, we learned about Christianity at Church and in the public schools. The only thing I ever learned about Muslims was what I read in Moby Dick. Now, the media -- news and entertainment -- has entered the fray. For the most part, they have engaged in a Jihad on all religion, but in an enemy-of-my-enemy-is-my-friend way have defended the Muslim faith.
From watching the evening news, we all know...
- Islam is the religion of Peace
- Allahu Akbar means God Is Great
- Crucifixions, stonings, and beheadings are still pretty common
- Honor Killing and other Muslim traditions happen in the US
More important, we have the internet. One can google Allahu Akbar, Honor Killings, or Muhammad and learn a lot more. You can also get an English translation of the Quran, take a course, or find a local Mosque.
So, there is plenty of ammo for anyone to embrace or hate anything.
There will be a lot of interest in this conversion. People will want to see how Easley's significant other dresses and behaves. His body language will be scrutinized by some (Mr. Easley DO NOT run your finger against your neck on the football field). And, of course, people will compare how much hatred there was for Tebow (you cannot argue that this guy is not a kind person with respectable values) compared to [fill in your favorite Muslim here]. Eventually, we may be talking about Easley's impact on the locker room.
This conversion was tweeted by Easley. Assuming the twitter account, here is what he had to say...
I'm pretty OK with that, but I was also OK with Tebow. This really isn't a football discussion and, hopefully, it will be moved. Let's hope that he gives us more to talk about this year.
BTW, what was Vince Wilfork's faith? Ten years a Patriot and I have no idea. It's not even in his wikipedia article. I kind of like that.
Convert to reform Judaism. Or just secular Judaism... where it's still wrong, but groesse gedillah...
No, that's our nationality...
This is because Tim Tebow is an abysmal professional football player whom ESPN shoved down our throats.
Vince was a Roastafarian.
You mean other than the fact that 99% are Christian?
This thread belongs in the political forum.
I didn't expect it to blow up. And guess what? It didn't.
I wasn't actually referring to Tebow, I was referring to the claim of religion and football not mixing -- reality clearly is otherwise.
I'm on a phone. Cut and paste is a little difficult.
All I said was that he converted and it was interesting. If you read something into that, it's on you.
Actually what you said was that it was a Rorsach test, and imo that said more about you. You were looking for a political reaction from the start.
Then don't start the thread.
Agreed. My posts in this thread were to get certain people to look at themselves and understand that if they want to remain true to themselves, they cannot bash one religion while not considering the same for others. I know that a couple of the leaders of the Tebow/Christian bashing are atheists, and it just amazes me that they will gladly pile on to Tebow because of his profession(s) of faith, while ignoring everyone else's.
It's time that all of that was put to bed, and our focus on individual players per solely upon their football abilities, and their relations within our community. Everything else should be left out of it.
Thanks for commenting here, abdul7. IT's always nice to read your comments and insights.
That's not true. According to the latest census figures, only about 40% of the population say they attend church regularly. About 65% total profess to being Christian. The nation has been that way since before it's founding. There was always some 40% who were either agnostic, atheist, or some other religion.
So? I was looking for people to imply bad motives. And some did.
That's not disrespectful or insulting to muslims.
No. Drop dead. You don't give orders around here.
