Before the Super Bowl even happened last weekend, we all know the public debate over it whipped up into a heated controversy and abortion activists joined forces to contest it and try to have CBS yank the Tim and Pam Tebow ad from the commercial lineup. So just the leak that it would air generated that media frenzy and very public debate. That’s the beauty of this whole episode...


Super Bowled over

First, it was a great game, no matter which team you were rooting for. Whether at home or in the stadium, you felt you were in on one big party, and from the Star Bangled Banner to the final blizzard of confetti, it was all good. But people at home had the chance to see the much-anticipated ads. How were they?


The Tebow ad. Nice

Heightened emotions. Fear. Falsehood. Condemnation without information. It's no surprise that it was all in the mix for the activist abortion-on-demand organizations agitating publicly for the past two weeks to keep the Tim Tebow ad off the air during the Super Bowl. Because that's how the pro-abortion movement operates.

Controversy over an ad for the big event makes you wonder what some folks mean by 'choice'.


Politics at the Prayer Breakfast

This annual inter-faith and faith-based event, drawing together high level politicians, diplomats, dignitaries, clergy and media, is supposed to be about God and humanity and peace and goodwill, which is why it generally gets little press. This year’s National Prayer Breakfast got into politics more than usual, and got plenty of press.
