Let My Tebow Go
New York Times, by Stephen Marche

Original Article

Posted By:HisHandmaiden, 12/18/2012 12:33:12 AM

What will Tim Tebow be doing by the time you read this? Will he be leading the Jets to an improbable victory, perhaps even a miraculous playoff berth? Will he be publicly demanding a trade to somewhere like Jacksonville? Or will he be exactly where he was when we last saw him — injured and wasting away on the Jets’ bench, weathering nasty cheap shots from teammates, like the one who sneered to The Daily News: “We’re depending on miracles? You can’t play that way”?

Comments:
Rex Ryan should have read this before last night´s game...

Definitely a Must Read [completely] after these last four days...
Well done, Stephen Marche...
[And from NYT]

I´m sorry, Tim Tebow is a fine man. An exemplary man. He´s not an NFL quarterback. The reason he is not playing QB is because his teammates, who see him in practice, know he´s not capable. The NFL is a business, not a religion.

I thought this was hopelessly pretentious. Who cares the writer´s an atheist? And then, Kierkegaard, Sartre, Camus, “The Myth of Sisyphus”....and Tim Tebow? If the Jets want to pay Tebow $11 million over 5 years, it´s up to them. If Tebow wants to leave he should demand to be traded or released. Seems pretty straightforward. Not much of an essay.

Yeah #2 taking a crap team like Denver to the play offs with a 7-1 season sure proves he´s not an NFL QB.

Tebow is being Palined in the press; because he´s not a cookie cutter QB endorsed by the loudmouth ESPN liberal commentators, read Keith Oberman.

Well, I was worried about him but recently read he´s found a lovely lady.... So the season wasn´t a total loss for him!

I do hope they trade him to a team that will appreciate him... at least let him play, for crikey sake!

Tebow´s going to have a hard time finding acceptance on any team just because he endorses Jesus in public.To them,football is a science and no spiritual intervention is acceptable.It was just like Jeremy Lin last year who was a 2 week sensation,then the NBA bullies ganged up on him because he was grabbing too much attention.

The NYTs employs the most flaky writers. Marche writes about Tebow to get attention to his writing. I suggest he not write any further about himself, as no one has any interest.

Sounds as though his "teammates" (enemies)are attacking Tebow. Very hostile situation. Thank goodness he has a strong faith (like Pres. Bush)to survive the hate from the left.

Tim Tebow reportedly asks to not
be used in Jets´ wildcat offense
Los Angeles Times, by Sam Farmer    Original Article
Posted By: HisHandmaiden- 12/24/2012 1:47:48 AM     Post Reply
No matter how he has played, Tim Tebow has always been regarded as the paragon of sportsmanship and never-say-die persistence. But according to an ESPN report after the Jets’ loss to San Diego on Sunday, Tebow asked out of the wildcat package because he was frustrated with his role in the offense. The report, which cited several unnamed Jets sources, said Tebow’s frustration reached a boiling point Tuesday when he learned he would be passed over for the starting opportunity when Mark Sanchez was benched. Greg McElroy got the start and was sacked 11 times in a 27-17 loss to the Chargers.

Dear Lord God – We, Your people, who acknowledge Your name seek Your face, and ask forgiveness. We, Your people, acknowledge we have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed. We acknowledge Your Judgment upon our country. You have pulled back because we have removed You from our schools, and court rooms, and public forums. You have allowed godless leaders to assume positions of leadership in all institutions. God deliver us now.

November 1, 2012, is a day we set aside for a National Call to Prayer and Fasting for the Restoration of America. We have already defined the need for such a large coordinated prayer.

Defining the God we Pray to

When Americans pray, we pray to the God who reigns in America. We believe He is the one true God. According to the Bible and the Nicene Creed, He is a Triune God: Jehovah, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost. And He is the God of the Hebrew Shema: “Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One.” That divine nature is a mystery to our minds. (Snip) He is: Jesus, The Christ, the Messiah, The Beautiful Savior, The Anointed One. He is the Sacrificial Lamb of God. He is the Word, by Whom all things were made.

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived.

Famed former CNN host Larry King said he has never heard of Juanita Broaddrick Thursday in an interview with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV. Broadrrick, a former Arkansas nursing home worker, accused President Clinton of raping her during the late 1970s in a 1998 Dateline interview. Malzberg was describing a double standard of media coverage during the 2012 conventions, noting left wing pundits dubbed the GOP convention a “convention of rapists” while remaining silent on President Clinton’s keynote address despite sexual assault allegations directed against the former president. King interjected “Hold up, hold up. Stop! Bill Clinton was accused of rape?” Malzberg reacted

Michelle Obama chose Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera for the gown she wore Tuesday to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande. The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before. It´s very French in terms of how ornate it

Fiery Louis Farrakhan of Nation of Islam fame said during his weekly video sermon that white people have a history of stirring up trouble, and that Allah has chosen blacks “to give life” and sit at the “top of civilization.” He also “issued the final call,” as he termed it: “I say to the Pope and all the lovers of Jesus, if you desire, let’s have a showdown. You call the Jesus that you know, and I’ll call on the Jesus that I know, and let’s see which one of us really knows Jesus.” Mr. Farrakhan quoted widely from Elijah

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in direct contact with President Barack Obama at least 18 times between October 2012 and October 2013, including seven occasions where her draft calendar showed Obamacare as the topic of conversation. The news appears to contradict her insistence that Obama was in the dark about problems plaguing the ill-fated healthcare.gov website in the months leading up to its October 1, 2013 launch. The Hill newspaper reported Thursday that documents released through a Freedom of Information Act request show meetings, events and phone calls where the two were together. They also show at

I imagine the only thing worse than being forced to watch CNN inside an airport terminal is being forced to watch it in a doctor’s office. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered a Michigan health care facility, funded by federal tax dollars, blocked Fox News Channel from its waiting room television sets. The president of Family Health Care directed staff to block Fox News after a board member complained about our network’s coverage of the Affordable Care Act, an employee told me. “The board member complained that patients were turning the channel to Fox News,” said the employee who asked

In a segment on last night’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, political commentator and prodigal GOP son Ron Reagan called out Sen. Ted Cruz’s latest filibustering of a Senate bill to increase the debt ceiling as self-destructive maneuver that achieved nothing — except, perhaps, hastened the destruction of the GOP. “What exactly was on Ted Cruz’s mind?” a boggled Reagan asked. “What was he thinking of in terms of his Senate colleagues? They could have all voted against the debt limit increase, they could have all gone home to their constituents in Tennessee or Kentucky or wherever, and they could have said,
