The hypocrisy is overwhelming. Tebow somehow isn't allowed to be Christian and express his beliefs publicly but Kluwe is somehow a hero for being a supporter of gay rights. As a Vikings fan I can tell you that I found Kluwe to be an annoying distraction and was quite happy to hear that he was cut. He was always overrated, but like you said, a football team is about football, not one player's nonsensical advocacy. The Vikings coaches were tired of Kluwe's nonsense and you know what? They're right. With him and Percy Harvin gone, that's one less distraction that we have to worry about here.

Why is Tebow singled out and th focus of such hatred? I dont remember this hatred for Kurt Warner. Some how genuflecting is an abomination yet crossing yourself and pointing to the sky is prefectly fine.

Art: As a huge life-long Rams fan I can tell you Warner got some flack for his beliefs/gestures/willingness to speak about God. But certainly not to the degree of Tebow. I dunno, maybe Tebow gets more guff b/c he is nowhere near as successful as Warner ...?
