Are you “Tebowed”-out, yet? I absolutely love the guy both as a football player and a human being, but even I’m getting a bit Tebow-fatigued from the constant barrage of Tebow related news articles and blog posts. And, yet, here I am writing another one of my own. But it’s for a good cause.
The other day I told you about the pro-abortion blogger who was using Tebow-mania to solicit funds for pro-abortion organizations. She asked her readers to donate $10 every time Tebow throws a touchdown against the Patriots this afternoon. The author, Sophia Brugato, told the New York Observer that it wasn’t her intent to start a major campaign asking for pro-abortion funds, but that’s what it has become. Now there is a Twitter account called @10forTebow with over 200 followers, people are using the hashtag #10forTebow to pledge their support and the webstie 10forTebow.org is currently under construction.
I don’t know how big of a campaign this is really going to be and if it’s worth caring about at all, but I do find it rather distasteful. For what it’s worth, in response, Jill Stanek is calling for a pro-life take-over of #10forTebow, asking pro-lifers to donate $10 to a crisis pregnancy center for every Tebow touchdown. Sounds like a plan to me. Participate if you can!
Final score 41-23 Patriots with Tebow and the Broncos scoring three touchdowns on the ground. The irony of the whole thing is that none of those touchdowns would have raised any abortion funds if they followed Sophia Brugato’s original instructions (emphasis mine):
For every touchdown Tebow throws next week…donate $5 or $10 to your local pro-choice organization.
That didn’t seem to matter to the pro-abortion #10forTebow supporters, of course, who pledged their money regardless, but I thought it was fairly amusing.
