I've mentioned before that Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow would never have been allowed onto the football field if he wrote "There Is" and "No God" under each eye with black eyeliner instead of "John" and "3:16." Well, the same standard that allows Tebow to promote his faith on the field seems to apply to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, too. After winning the Super Bowl, he said "God is great!" It was aired on television. All was well and good with the world...
Yet, think of the reaction there would have been if he had said "Allah is great!" instead. Jonathan Zimmerman asks in the Christian Science Monitor:
"...Would network television announcers have applauded Brees as a "man of faith," as he is frequently called?
