Tim Tebow and the “Jesus Controversy”

You gotta love news nowadays. The media has become a cesspool of twisting ideas, facts and fiction in order to make what I refer to as “Sensationalistic  Journalism”. They make sure to stir controversy even when there’s none. Rupert Murdoch e person who absolutely despises any news which didn’t come from any of his papers or networks or business affiliates summed it up in his own words by saying; We’ve got to lift our game tremendously. We’ll sell our business news and information in print, we’ll sell it to anyone who’s got a cable system, and we’ll sell it on the Web. Exactly Mr Murdoch, you will sell your product to anyone who can buy it, or has to buy it in order to stay in business, and of course since there’s too much of a demand for news and very little actual news worthy of reporting, I am pretty sure you’ll make up for it (does News International phone-hacking scandal, ring a bell anyone?).  Now let me get to the point of the title of my blog, take a look at the picture below

The controversy apparently started yesterday when this picture taken from the latest edition of GQ magazine after which  FoxNews.com published an editorial titled; Tim Tebow ‘Jesus’ pose in GQ stirs controversy on sports radio
Of course Msn.com like the little kid on the playground feeling left out had to post the same article on its website under the same title just to show how controversial a half-naked quarterback, on the field with his arms open wide just seems to resemble Jesus, somehow, somewhere Msn.com and FoxNews.com made the connection, and this wasn’t even published after Sunday mass, oh no… it took up til Tuesday to get this sucker out.Now, Tim Tebow may be many things, and though I never cared much for sports of any kind and least of all football, the only thing I’m interested in the guy is his looks and that’s all folks. But, to have Msn.com and FoxNews.com go hand in hand to try and make something out of a picture which was taken years back when Tebow was still playing for the Gators and make it seem sacrilegious is not just plain stupid but insulting to anyone who still has at least half of a working brain. Reportedly Craig Carton (host of the WFAN sports radio show in New York City) went [bonkers] calling Tebow and I quote [a narcissist and a fraud, and calling him “sexy Jesus.”]. Wow, really Carton, Tebow is a “sexy Jesus”? Was that an insult or praise and worship? Gurrl I’ve seen your pics and let me tell ya; those who wear high heels should not be throwing balls.

Once again people, lets be realistic here, it is just a picture. Like I said before, Tebow may be many things but he’s never going to come close to our “Lord and Savior” no matter how many crossed legs-open wide arms-in the middle of a field shots he takes. So lets enjoy the guy for what GQ tried to accomplish and move on. More pics of Tebow below for you personal enjoyment and HAPPY HUMP-DAY!!!

  1. I don’t get it. I’d ask if it’s a slow news day, but given the fact that there is still a war going on, the economy isn’t improving, unemployment isn’t getting better, credit debt is at an all time high, I’m afraid the question would sound like a bad joke. The “Jesus Pose” has been done so often, one would expect people to be completely desensitized to it by now.

    Madonna did it: http://images.usatoday.com/life/_photos/2006/09/21/madonna.jpg

    Kanye West did it: http://beginningandend.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Kanye-West-Jesus-Rolling-Stone-Cover-Illuminati.jpg

    Marilyn Manson did it: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20America/marilyn_manson-holy_wood.jpg

    Heck, even Ricky Gervais did an ironic version of it for fun: http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/g/gervais-jesus-photoshoot-causes-controversy-62882-470-75.jpg

    I could go on and on, but I think you get the point. This just reeks of manufactured outrage.

    • That was the point I was trying to make. Responsible journalism has become a joke, I mean look at the front page of Msn.com, it has videos of dogs doing trick and news that’s not really news. Then, you get FauxNews.com who get outraged about bullshit like this. A picture is just that a picture, weather it be for publicity (and god knows Tebow needs it 😉 )or else it’s just simply a picture. Why isn’t anyone getting outraged about the tax deals being made in Congress and the middle class being fist-fucked to oblivion while the working class can barely makes end meet? This is what gets me, they use religion as a tool to stir shit they’re not suppose to. They have used Jesus to the point that where I hear His name I wanna vomit my guts out til kingdom come. I mean when enough is enough?

        I suppose whenever it stops being profitable (we all do ultimately worship at the alter of the almighty $, do we not?).

          • Many of us also place it on a higher plane than our own self-worth (in fact, allow it to define our self-worth), and value it as the primary standard by which to govern our lives around. If that’s not quite worship, it is at least a form of fetishization.

            • Indeed we do put too much emphasis on money, and indeed it does define us and our worth as people. Yet, I don’t believe it’s worship as much as pressure form the world around us. I’ve always said it to people; money may not bring happiness, but it sure makes like a whole lot easier. And also I been quoted for saying; There’s a difference between being depressed and having no money, and being depressed and having it. I’m living proof of that one.
