Tebow Superbowl Ad

It was confirmed some time ago that Tim Tebow and his mother were going to have an ad during the Superbowl this year. I had never heard of the young man until I read about his ad. (I don't watch football though I do enjoy the Superbowl for some reason.) I found his story very touching.

Now of course pro-abortion types have come out protesting. According to LifeSiteNews, [a] fierce campaign is being waged by pro-abortion forces against the planned pro-life Super Bowl ad featuring football superstar Tim Tebow. At last count, pro-abortion organizations had generated over 120,000 letters opposing the ad, which have been sent to CBS, and NFL executives.
(If you would like to sign a petition letting CBS know that you are supportive of this, click here.)

Is there still freedom of speech in this country or what? If you abortion types are so offended, don't watch the Superbowl. It is as simple as that.

UPDATE: In the comments, I was given this link to a site where you can be an encouragement to Tim Tebow. The site says that NOW is also protesting the ad. Now there is a surprise. This video was also linked to above the note of encouragement section.

Furthermore, there is a link available where you can send a note of encouragement to the Tebow family and show your support directly to them:

Thanks for the info, Scott.

Tell me again how no one is pro-abortion and they're all just pro-choice.

Beyond that ... they're fussing about an ad that they haven't even seen. This is all beyond absurd.

First - Tim Tebow is an amazing young man. When Florida was playing football on TV, the Bible verse that Tim would have in his eye black would quickly become the most googled search for about 24 hours. Also, Tim was homeschooled until entering the University of Florida. He is one of the best college quarterbacks of all time, and a Heisman Trophy winner.

Second, if we are going to demand freedom of speech that CBS run the Tebow pro-life spot, will we also demand that they run the ad they have refused from a dating service for gay men? No, I'm not trying to be difficult - personally I would just want the Tebow spot, but if we are really going to stand for free speech ...

Just wondering.

There are certain decency laws for prime time. I would say that if the gay dating service ads were within the law, then they should have the right to run them.

If we want freedom for ourselves, we must let others have it as well.
