8. Would you be so cavalier if the KKK broadcast a commercial?
"Focus on the Family" is a misogynist, homophobic hate group that poured over a half million dollars into overturning gay marriage in California and more recently, some 100,000 dollars to defeat gay marriage in Maine. The fact that Tebow and Focus on the Family will now spend millions to campaign against the reproductive rights of women SHOULD piss people off.

I'm sick and tired of the Tim Tebows and Tony Dungys of the world constantly being referred to as "good Christians" when what they really are is BIGOTS who use their position as sports celebrities to push the hate-filled agendas of their brand of "Christianity".
