Re: [humanism-174] Eyeblack threat to Christianity

I'm not sure if it's a still-pic ad or a longer commercial- all I could find were variations on this:

Still, the insinuation that his mere existence in the ad "pushes a gay agenda"... I guess any pic of me used anywhere automatically pushes an atheist agenda.

I wonder if Tim Tebow ever put "Ezk 4:12" on his eyeblack? :)

"The report suggests CBS is trying to "mimic Tim Tebow's style of trumpeting messages" through the use of eye black, and quotes an anonymous fan of the game who said the ad is "pushing the gay agenda" and "mocking Christians at the same time" by allowing (Neil Patrick) Harris to be featured in it."

I'd like to see the ad itself.  Of course it sounds like it parodies the fundaloon agenda. Maybe it also pokes fun at the macho aspect of sports, and maybe it subtly promotes the "gay agenda", which is of course world conquest (ok, maybe the world of fashion, but conquest nevertheless! lol).  Personally, I think there is something of a difference between Christianity and biblical literalism.  Not all Christians are literalists and not all literalists are Christian. 
Just one more skirmish in the culture war!
