Now that the crowd has emptied the stadiumFor all the sports fans who appreciate the "thrill of victory and the agony of defeat," yesterday's Super Bowl XLIV will go down as most memorable. Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints and to the people of New Orleans.
What was also memorable was the two weeks of flurry surrounding the "controversial" Focus on the Family ad involving Tim Tebow and his mom. Pro-abortion forces tried to pressure CBS in to dumping the ad. For two weeks the Tebows were subjected to slanderous assaults on their character while liberal pundits complained about this ad from the "anti-choice, homophobic, extreme right wing" conservative organization.
When the dust settled and the ad had been seen by millions, almost everyone who saw the ad realized how insanity has taken hold of the pro-abortion industry.
The Tebow ad was a simple humorous and very innocuous celebration of the love between a mother and her son - who happens to be a pretty decent fellow and a darn good quarterback. Wow - real controversial - a mother who loves her son and a son who is appreciative of his mother.
But never let it be said that the NOW cows and the NARAL wackos had any clue on decency. Nor let it be said that they even understand some of the values lived by the Tebows or any family that really believes in the sanctity of life. No, the best thing that happened was that the American people saw how empty and shallow are the extremists that promote abortion.
Now is the time to remind the American people that our greatness is found in our generosity toward life, in our desire to share the bounties of liberty and our willingness to sacrifice for those in need.
That openness is found in respecting the beauty of life is personified in the innocent little child. as a country, as a society, and as a culture we need to affirm life and reject those who would lead us down the sterile path to oblivion.
