Some folks — guess who — are upset that Michael Sam, the first openly gay NFL player, is getting heaped with praise while Tim Tebow, the umpeenth openly Christian player in the NFL, was mocked for his faith.
No, actually, Tim Tebow was mocked because he wasn’t as good he was as hyped to be. Two teams — the Broncos and the Jets — gave him a fair try and he bombed out. It had nothing to do with his public display of his faith. But the fundies and the wingers can’t help but make it all about that — how he’s a martyr for his faith — instead of the fact that he couldn’t throw a pass to his own teammates.
