I'm not sure what to say about this...

First of all, while I knew websites that encourage and enable marital infidelity existed, the very concept still offends me to my core.  My personal code is harsher on cheating on a spouse than it is on a murderer, in most cases. 

To have one of those websites ponying up a $1 million reward for tripping and trapping a good and godly man, just because he's a public figure, disgusts me to the point of wishing rectal cancer on the man that offered the reward.  Maybe a little prostate and testicular cancer, as well.  Oh, and bladder cancer.  And boils.  Lots and lots of huge, painful, pustulant boils on the level of what God allowed Satan to inflict on Job. 

I am not a follower of any sports.  I dislike the veneration our culture heaps upon them undeservedly.  I hate that they're held up as "role models" for kids, when the only behavior they're modelling is bad behavior.

That said, the only complaint I've heard about Tim Tebow is that he has the balls to kneel on the field and pray in public. 

That is what being a role model is all about: doing the right thing, no matter who mocks you for it.

  1. I wonder what the new Delilah's name will be? History sure does rhyme, doesn't it?

    Men who love the Lord fail even in that area, HH, I can speak to that personally. Please don't be too harsh. It should come as no surprise that Satan's Minions do his work, and work to trip and trap the Faithful. If they did it to Him, they'll do it to us.

    1. Keep in mind: I do not judge those who have not made a vow to be faithful. If Tebow falls into bed with someone, male or female, that's his business--between him and God.

      It's the creep behind the website attacking him for trying to be a good man that pisses me off. Not surprises me, just pisses me off.

  2. Might as well bitch about the government wasting money (Oh, Wait - I do that!)

    If someone believes in their vows - it won't matter, if they don't - it won't matter. Temptation is only temptation.
    Then again - I never felt subject to peer pressure either - never smoked, never tried pot, I've only been drunk once - definitely not typical so maybe I'm wrong :)

    1. I am just disgusted by the individual that posted the bounty. And there's a good reason I hold oathbreaking as a worse crime than murder--that's the attitude behind Obama ignoring the oath of office he swore in '09.

  3. The short answer as to why? People suck.

    The longer answer? People in those positions can't BELIEVE that anyone can actually be "good" or moral or anything like that, and they take joy in destroying what they see as others' illusions. It's the same as the person with a can of spray paint who goes up to some kind of piece of artwork or a public building and "tags" it with their name, or who writes a four-letter word on it. It's juvenile and asinine but unfortunately it's a kind of behavior that doesn't meet with the level of disapproval that it should in our culture.

    I have no use for people like this.

    (May be slightly bitter as my classroom building was recently graffito'd, and apparently there's "no money in the budget" to remove it. I may have to dig out my powerwasher and have a go at it MYSELF.)

    1. I think that taking care of it myself would be what I'd do. You sure can't count on those in charge to do what's right.

    2. Tim Tebow brought me back to watching the NFL.....

      He is a very special young man and his future will show that he is more than a good football player.
