Dwarfism
Doctors told her mother to abort. But she chose life and now little Grace is praising the Lord!

Super Bowl ad with John 3:16 rejected by Fox Sports , local minister is outraged !

Posted in Anti-Christian Bigotry, Christian, Church, persecution, Religion with tags , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2011 by saynsumthn

Report by the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel :

The 30-second commercial shows football fans in a living room cheering wildly for a quarterback sack. Cut to a close-up of a player’s face. In the black smudge under his eyes it says, “John 3:16.”

The viewer is then directed to the website http://www.lookup316.com.

That’s it. Someone unfamiliar with the Christian Bible might not even get the reference.

The John 3:16 commercial was produced by Fixed Point, a Birmingham, Ala., religious advocacy group, which wanted it aired on Fox Sports during the Super Bowl this Sunday. The Super Bowl broadcast begins at 6:30 p.m. on Fox.

Fox turned down the ad because it contained “religious doctrine,” which is against their policy, said a Fox spokesman.

Fixed Point founder Larry Taunton is taking the rejection in stride, being mobbed by reporters since he put out a press release about what happened. John 3:16 was the lead religion item on HuffingtonPost.com on Monday.

For Christians, John 3:16 contains the essence of their faith: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

The verse also has been a part of broadcast sports since the mid-1970s. That was when rainbow-wigged Rollen Stewart became a minor celebrity for holding up a card with “John 3:16” on it in the end zone at football games and other major sporting events.

In recent years, others in the stands have held up the John 3:16 sign, but its most famous adherent is Tim Tebow, the University of Florida’s former star quarterback, who wrote Bible verses in his eye black.

The idea came to Fixed Point founder Larry Taunton during last year’s Super Bowl, when he asked himself, “If I had 30 seconds, what would I say to 106 million people?”

The day after last year’s Super Bowl, Taunton called Fox Sports.

“They said they probably wouldn’t air something like that, but they were intrigued and were willing to look at our story boards,” Taunton said.

Two months after receiving the story boards, Fox rejected the ad.

Taunton spent Monday and Tuesday being interviewed by reporters, mostly from religious publications.

“If we can achieve the same cultural dialogue this way, so be it,” Taunton said.

Fixed Point then bought two local TV spots during the Super Bowl in Birmingham and a few other cities. They will not be aired in the South Florida market.

When Boca Raton minister Mark Boykin heard about the rejected ad, he was offended.

“They call themselves ‘fair and balanced.’ They say, ‘We are a Christian nation.’ That’s their mantra,” said Boykin, who heads the Church of All Nations in Boca Raton. “If you’re going to have that moniker, you’d better stand behind it.”

Instead of turning the other cheek, Boykin went on offense.

He launched a letter-writing campaign on Tuesday after he heard that Fox had refused to air the John 3:16 commercial. The same Fox network that turned down the John 3:16 commercial allowed celebrities to use the F-word and the S-word — unbleeped — at the 2002 and 2003 broadcasts of the Billboard Music Awards show, which was watched by more than a million young people, Boykin said.

“I don’t see how we can give them a free pass on this,” Boykin said. “They’re counting on Christians being reticent and docile, but this one we are not going to let go.”

Since advertisers compete to produce Super Bowl ads that get people talking, Taunton said it is possible that the John 3:16 ad just wasn’t racy enough.

“Maybe if we had a girl in a bikini holding up a John 3:16 sign in one hand and a beer in the other, they would like it,” he said, laughing.

National Organization for out of touch pro-abort Women (NOW) says Tebow ad glorified violence against women

Super Bowl commercial featuring Tebows takes lighthearted approach

Pam Tebow and her son, 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow, appear in the Focus on the Family commercial that aired Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 7, 2010) on CBS. For the full Tebow story, visit http://www.focusonthefamily.com/. Celebrate family. Celebrate life.

NOW president Terry O’Neill said the ad glorified violence against women. “I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it,” she said. “That’s what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don’t find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself.”

WHAT Cry Babies they are. I am female and NOW DOES NOT REPRESENT ME ! Get over yourself and stop your silly whining NOW GIRLS – GROW UP!

Cat Fight over Tim Tebow Superbowl Ad. Pro-Choice Feminist exposes NOW for not being “Pro-Choice”

It is pretty bad when the National Organization of (Pro-abortion) Women are getting called out as hypocrites by one of their own.

Tebow’s Super Bowl ad isn’t intolerant; its critics are

By Sally Jenkins
Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, February 2, 2010

I’m pro-choice, and Tebow clearly is not. But based on what I’ve heard in the past week, I’ll take his side against the group-think, elitism and condescension of the “National Organization of Fewer and Fewer Women All The Time.” For one thing, Tebow seems smarter than they do.

Tebow’s 30-second ad hasn’t even run yet, but it already has provoked “The National Organization for Women Who Only Think Like Us” to reveal something important about themselves: They aren’t actually “pro-choice” so much as they are pro-abortion. Pam Tebow has a genuine pro-choice story to tell. She got pregnant in 1987, post-Roe v. Wade, and while on a Christian mission in the Philippines, she contracted a tropical ailment. Doctors advised her the pregnancy could be dangerous, but she exercised her freedom of choice and now, 20-some years later, the outcome of that choice is her beauteous Heisman Trophy winner son, a chaste, proselytizing evangelical….Apparently NOW feels this commercial is an inappropriate message for America to see for 30 seconds, but women in bikinis selling beer is the right one …You know what we really need more of? Famous guys who aren’t embarrassed to practice sexual restraint, and to say it out loud. If we had more of those, women might have fewer abortions. …Tebow has a right to express his beliefs publicly. Just as I have the right to reject or accept them after listening — or think a little more deeply about the issues. If the pro-choice stance is so precarious that a story about someone who chose to carry a risky pregnancy to term undermines it, then CBS is not the problem.

Planned Parenthood recently released a response to the ad by using two African American male athletes to express their support.

Tim Tebow comments about his pro-life Super Bowl ad

Posted in Abortion, Anti-abortion, pro-choice, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 26, 2010 by saynsumthn

Tim Tebow spoke out publically in support of the planned Super Bowl ad that will feature the former Florida quarterback and his mom speaking on the benefits of being pro-life.

Pam Tebow was advised to have an abortion before giving birth to Tim in the Philippines in 1987. She details her decision in the ad.

“I mean, some people won’t agree with it, you know, but I think they can at least respect that I stand up for what I believe,” Tim Tebow said from Mobile, Ala., where he is preparing for the Senior Bowl. “I’m just standing for something and, you know, I’ve always been very convicted of it one. That’s the reason why I’m here because my mom is a very courageous woman.”

Here is video of Tebow’s comments:

The ad, which is being run by Focus on the Family, has drawn criticism from pro-choice organizations that don’t believe the ad is appropriate CBS to air during the Super Bowl.

CBS approved the script of the ad, according to a network spokesman, and does not appear to be changing its decision due to the protest. It issued this statement: “Our standards and practices process continues to adhere to a policy that ensures all ads on all sides of an issue are appropriate for air.”

NOW vs. TEBOW?

WASHINGTON, Jan. 26 /Christian Newswire/ — Today Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser responded to the objections from the National Organization for Women (NOW) to Focus on the Family’s Super Bowl Pro-Life Tim Tebow advertisement. She offered the following statement:

NOW and company are losing their grip as their pro-abortion position sinks in public opinion. I had no idea NOW leaders were such experts on sports. Missed that part of their mission.

What is real here is their desperation to keep full information from women. Shouldn’t the “pro-choice” position respect Pam Tebow’s decision to choose Life? What is the worst case scenario in allowing the ad to air? Women are exposed to an example of sacrifice for the sake of an unborn child. NOW needs to explain where the harm and threat to women and children is here.

Today, the AP released a story detailing NOW’s efforts to call on CBS to drop the Tebow Super Bowl ad. The ad, produced by Focus on the Family, tells the story of Pam Tebow’s decision to continue with her pregnancy against doctor advice and give birth to the college football star, Tim Tebow.

Earlier this year, NOW President Terry O’Neill, confessed to the National Journal that the organization is struggling. “It seems to me we are stalled out…”.

The National Journal article, contrasted the grassroots success of the Susan B. Anthony List with the apparent decline of NOW’s grassroots effectiveness.

The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of Americans, over 280,000 residing in all 50 states, dedicated to mobilizing, advancing, and representing pro-life women in politics. Its connected Candidate Fund increases the percentage of pro-life women in the political process.

Super Bowl Commercial Brings Different Focus to Tebow

Posted in NFL, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2010 by saynsumthn

Tim Tebow is already far more famous than Kurt Warner.

In fact, let’s be clear, the moment he is drafted Tim Tebow will be the athlete most famous for his religion since Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali.

And suddenly multicultural America, with a variety of religious beliefs, will come face-to-face with a man whose strict adherence to a muscular form of Christianity, despite his personal charisma, isn’t all warm and fuzzy. Especially when that statement of religious values comes not at the close of a game in a short on-field interview, but in a contest that the athlete is not even competing in. Focus on the Family, the right wing non-profit funding Tebow’s ad, isn’t a middle-of-the-road religious organization. Tebow’s Super Bowl ad, for instance, will embrace a pro-life stance, which is the position of Focus on the Family, but something that half of America will disagree with.

Will that stance be controversial?

Certainly it will in many cities across the length and width of our country. And certainly it will be for many sports fans who sit down to watch the Super Bowl as an escape from the more serious issues facing our society. We come to watch football and funny ads, not be convinced that our view on abortion is wrong or right.

But opposing abortion isn’t the most controversial of Focus on the Family’s stances. The organization also opposes all forms of gambling, the theory of evolution — preferring intelligent design — premarital sex, and the so-called “homosexual agenda.”

How many fans watching the Super Bowl will be able to raise their hand and assert that they’ve never gambled or had premarital sex or supported the theory of evolution? (Heck, some may do all three during the telecast.)

Not many.

All of these issues are incredibly controversial with well-meaning people embracing beliefs on both sides. By appearing in an ad on behalf of Focus on the Family, Tebow provides an endorsement for these other beliefs as well. So far Tim Tebow’s own personal charisma has served to mask some of the intolerance associated with his own religious beliefs. By taking an avowed stand against abortion on the same day America celebrates the greatest sporting day on the calendar, Tim Tebow is taking a huge risk and stepping into a new arena.

He’s no longer America’s golden Christian amateur.

He’s a paid professional.

And for many, that’s going to make all the difference.
