Tim Tebow and the 'Us Versus Them' Mentality

Over 1.7 Million combined hits on my Yahoo stories since the first was published on 2/1/11. 
The power of the internet and of Social Media Friends made that happen.

This post was originally produced in mid-January. It is being posted again due to the currency of this week's events involving Tebow, the Broncos and the Jets.

Tim Tebow

Every blog must reference Denver Broncos Tim Tebow, right?

Here's my take: Tebow shows outward displays of his religious beliefs. That has created a national discussion/reaction because an internal war is currently underway...and has been for a long time.

War? Yes, a cultural turf war between secularists and religious people. Those who deny that aren't being honest about reality.  (Merry Christmas....Happy get the point.)

Many secular displays of emotion are shown every single day within the world of sports. Tebow's display goes against the norm.

Progressives & Conservatives on the same field

Those who claim to value diversity only want that ideological view of the world pushed if it fits their ideas. People who hold a certain opinion about the world aren't progressive, or conservative, they are opinionated.

Nice to label yourself as "progressive" if you think your ideas are advancing what's best for society. My, how much smarter you are than everyone else.

Nice to label yourself as being "conservative" if you think that you are preserving what's right about society. My, how much smarter you are than everyone else.

MEANWHILE...every other human being is in the middle.

There is nothing wrong with Tebow expressing his religious beliefs in public. This is a free society.

Here is a link to my Yahoo feature story on readers of this blog, I think it's one that you will enjoy:
