    Has polarizing football player Tim Tebow gotten a raw deal in the press because of his religious beliefs? And would he be treated more respectfully if he were not Christian, and specifically, Muslim? Gene Simmons thinks so.

    “He’s got a religious passion, as well he should, we’re in America,” the KISS frontman told Radio.com earlier this week. ”He’s proud to be a Christian, what’s wrong with that? And yet, with sports media and pop culture media, they make fun of his religion. Really? In America? If he was wearing a burqa, they wouldn’t dare say anything [editor's note: only Muslim women wear burqas]. But if you’re a Christian, you get to be picked on? What the hell? The guy’s got family values. I never saw the media picking on Michael Vick for torturing dogs. Or this other football player, who’s alleged to have killed, committed murder. That’s ‘cool.’ But a guy who’s religious and has got family values isn’t ‘cool?’ He’s cool to me.”

    From the article comments:

    Islam and it's values/teaching is counter to nearly everything secular Liberals stand for. Islam is the modern day Fascism.

    They are intolerant of ANYONE or GROUP who does not believe as they do. [especially secular Liberals]

    Muslims targeted the two most Liberal cities in America
    Muslims summarily execute gays and adulterers

    Gays would stand a chance walking through a Muslim city hand in hand.

    Yet Liberals still defend and embrace them

    Liberals are idiots

    Good for Gene Simmons. Too many people are afraid to peak their mind or to defend someone being dumped on by the media

    Yes, he does. He's had some success in the NFL but for some reason he's unemployed(he has a playoff win under his belt). However, there are a collection of stiffs in the league, stiffs who haven't done as well as Tebow, who are still employed. Derek Anderson, Josh McNown, Kevin Kolb(IR), to name a few are still in the league. If Tebow didn't wear his religion on his sleeve, he'd be on someone's roster.

    We must respect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.

    The most curious social convention of the great age in which we live is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected.

    The way to deal with superstition is not to be polite to it, but to tackle it with all arms, and so rout it, cripple it, and make it forever infamous and ridiculous. Is it, perchance, cherished by persons who should know better? Then their folly should be brought out into the light of day, and exhibited there in all its hideousness until they flee from it, hiding their heads in shame.
    True enough, even a superstitious man has certain inalienable rights. He has a right to harbor and indulge his imbecilities as long as he pleases, provided only he does not try to inflict them upon other men by force. He has a right to argue for them as eloquently as he can, in season and out of season. He has a right to teach them to his children. But certainly he has no right to be protected against the free criticism of those who do not hold them. He has no right to demand that they be treated as sacred. He has no right to preach them without challenge. Did Darrow, in the course of his dreadful bombardment of Bryan, drop a few shells, incidentally, into measurably cleaner camps? Then let the garrisons of those camps look to their defenses. They are free to shoot back. But they can’t disarm their enemy.

    You don't believe in God or religion. Gotcha. Some people do. But you decide to be a douchebag about it but then again, that's your M.O.

    Sounds like he's talking about everyone that believes they were born gay.

    To people like Nova, you have the right to express your gayness, the right to express your atheism, and the right to express your disdain for those who you disagree with but all 3 of these are a 1 way street. Only leftist ideals are protected speech and protected forms of expression. To disagree with the gay lifestyle gets you labeled a homophobe, to express one's belief in God gets you labeled a religious nutjob, and to disagree with the left gets you more labels than one can count(racist, sexist, misogynist, etc).
