DENVER, Colorado, December 14, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A blogger with a popular pro-abortion blog is urging readers to “support” vocally pro-life NFL quarterback Tim Tebow by donating to a pro-abortion group every time he scores a touchdown this Sunday against the New England Patriots.
“For every touchdown Tebow throws next week … donate $5 or $10 to your local pro-choice organization,” urges ‘Sophia’ of the Abortion Gang blog.
“I figure this is indeed the best way to enjoy football, support Tim Tebow (more touchdowns, mannn!!!), and give, give, give to pro-choice organizations earning little to no glory, yet desperately in need of funds,” she adds.
Despite receiving criticism for his Christian and pro-life beliefs, which has only increased since he took over as starting quarterback with the Broncos this fall, Tebow has remained unapologetic for his outspokenness.
In a radio interview last month, former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer had complained that the overtly Christian football sensation should tone it down. But in response Tebow told ESPN that he wasn’t about to back off his faith.
“That’s how it works because Christ comes first in my life, and then my family, and then my teammates,” he said. “I respect Jake’s opinion, and I really appreciate his compliment of calling me a winner. But I feel like anytime I get the opportunity to give the Lord some praise, he is due for it.”
Tebow has lit up the NFL scene this year, sporting a critic-defying 7-1 record, and becoming likely the NFL’s most talked about player in the process.
“Even I, the anti-Tebow, anti-Bronco fan, basketball-loving woman that I am, have been rooting for him. Yeah, he’s that damn good,” writes Sophia at Abortion Gang.
“But it always feels a bit, well, wrong. How can I support a guy that’s openly anti-choice?” she asks.
“This is the same man that used the Super Bowl to a) build his reputation and brand as the saintliest saint of an athlete that ever lived, and b) raise money for an anti-choice organization that would deny the right to abortion to millions of women that need it. Yuck,” she adds.
“If you’re a sports fan that also thinks women should be able to do what they want, when they want, and how they want it with their uteri, you can join in this too.”
Sophia says she plans to continue the pledge into the playoffs if the Broncos make it.
