Of Barack Obama and Tim Tebow

Last week, on Thanksgiving, President Obama delivered a message to the American people.  It ran eleven paragraphs and 503 words.  None of those words was God.  Obama thanked the men and women who defend the country; he thanked volunteers at soup kitchens.  All of that is well and good.  Thanksgiving is about celebrating community.  But more than anything, it’s about celebrating the benevolence of God.

At least that’s what George Washington said in declaring it a national holiday.  The day of Thanksgiving, he stated, was to “be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be– That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks–for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation …”

Upon seeing Obama’s God-less message, I tweeted, “Unreal that Obama doesn’t mention God in Thanksgiving message. Militant atheist. To whom does he think we are giving thanks?”

The “militant atheist” part of the tweet was based not only on Obama’s omission from the Thanksgiving message.  It was based on Obama’s long history of dislike for religion: his comment that small town Americans are bitter folks who “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment”; his speeches in which he portrayed the Bible as out of touch and ridiculous, suggesting that the Sermon on the Mount would force the shutdown of the Defense Department; his support for radical Muslims at the expense of Coptic Christians in Egypt; the list goes on.

My tweet, needless to say, caused consternation on the left.  Aside from the usual nutcases who cannot write anything without four-letter words, liberal outlets like Mediaite and Gawker suggested I was crazy for mentioning Obama’s comments.

This wasn’t just the Obama Defense Mechanism kicking in.  This was something larger than mere politics.

On Sunday, I sat down to watch the Denver Broncos play the San Diego Chargers. I noticed the same sort of virulent anger as I had experienced after tweeting – only this time, it was directed at Denver QB Tim Tebow.  Now, Tebow isn’t the world’s greatest quarterback.  He’s not Aaron Rodgers or even Ben Roethlisberger.  He’s a mediocre passer and a good runner; he’s a possession QB.  He wins.  And he’s always polite.
