“But I’d rather see an athlete behave with conviction than degrade himself to make money. I’d rather hear Tebow talk about what God has done for him than read another story about an athlete who beats up his wife or girlfriend.”

Great column by Jemele Hill. I hate the abortion discussion in this country. Both sides of the debate tend to be nauseating, but give Tebow credit. He’s standing up for what he believes in and he’s doing it with more class than most of these pro-this or pro-that fools generally tend to display. It’s safe to say that nobody really doubts Tim Tebow’s courage at this point, even if it isn’t as courageous as it once was to stand in the pocket against that celebrated Mickey Andrews defense. This decision though took more courage than anything Tebow ever did on the field. You don’t have to agree with him but put aside your politics for five seconds and show this kid some respect. As Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade would say:

“He has chosen a path. It’s the right path. It’s a path made of principle that leads to character. Let him continue on his journey.”
