I am SO mad At Tim Tebow

That's right. I said it. I'm a little aggravated with Tim Tebow right now. While Mr. Tebow and his family have freedom of speech on their side, what about me? What about my rights as a parent? We, like many other families on Sunday, will be watching the Super Bowl together. Normally the actual game itself is quite boring. The commercials totally make the Super Bowl. Thanks to Mr. Tebow and his family, I will now have to explain abortions to my 10-year old.

Yesterday afternoon I heard Gloria Allred on the Ryan Seacrest show while I was in the car driving the girls around to their various activities. She basically called Tim Tebow's mother a liar. She threw around words like allegedly, reportedly, purportedly. Gloria Allred said that abortion is totally illegal in the Philippines with no legal exceptions. Meaning that despite Mrs. Tebow claims, there is no way a Philippine doctor could have or would have advised a patient to have an abortion.

So, is the network allowing the Tebow's commercial because it's the all-great and powerful Tim Tebow or because of homophobia??? The network is, in my humble opinion, sliding down a slippery slope. If you are going to air the Tebow's commercial, why not air the gay dating service commercial? I'm not sure of the exact name of the dating company but it's the equivalent of for gay men. Honestly, it's much easier to explain homosexuality to a 10-year old than it is to explain the concept of abortion. Hell, let's get it all out on the table. Let's allow all special interest groups the same amount of air time. Let's hear from the right, the left and everyone in between...the NRA, the KKK, the Aryan Nation, the Bloods, the drug cartels, GreenPeace, you name it, they should get equal air time.
