I hear you Fred, but at least he did something wrong. The one that gets me is Tim Tebow, and while I do not watch football, do know that he is not the best football quarterback out there, the media likes to dump on him every chance they get. He did an underwear ad that was less then ideal for his Christian Morals I know, and I was not overly impressed with that, but overall he is a solid guy with standards.
I wonder if the media would pound on him so hard if he was Muslim, though the same question could be asked of Lance Armstrong too?
Myself I have hope just because there is power in perspective. Despite media coverage by most main stream TV channels, and even the local news stations having a segment devoted to sports, there is only about 76 million people attending the top four sports events in the country per year. In contrast, 104 million American's routinely go to church on Sunday, thereby statistically speaking, more people attend church in ONE WEEK then all of the major sports teams combined in a year. I doubt there will ever be a segment on my local news station regarding church services as my pastor can get a wee bit dry some days, but it is a matter of perspective, church attendance trumps sports by about 52:1. That gives me hope.
