An adult website that specializes in helping - helping, for heaven's sake - people cheat on their spouses and significant others has decided to sink even lower.
Tim Tebow, the new Jets Quarterback and formerly star on the Florida Gators football team, has publicly embraced his morals and Christianity. He said that he was saving himself for marriage.
And this website has the audacity to offer a BOUNTY on his virginity.
People may laugh, news announcers may snidely snicker and "wonder" if he can survive such an assault on his manhood.
But the truth is that this is an open attack on morals, Christianity and common decency.
People should be outraged by this. But, of course, they won't be. In a time when young people who decide to follow a course of abstinence are ridiculed, when a famous person stands up here for what he believes is right and is vilified, when porn stars reach the stature of fame and envy, it is a sad state of affairs for our country.
It seems it is okay to attack a person's Christianity but not if you speak out against abortion. It is okay to attack moral standing but not if you speak out against debauchery.
I personally am sickened by this kind of outright attack on a man's right to live a decent and spiritual life. I may not be a huge Tim Tebow fan. But I do respect the man for his stands. It is impossible to do anything about this website's actions. How do you boycott a business whose very services you would not deign to use? How do you stop the deceitful and despicable kind of women who would see this as a challenge?
The only way I can see is to call upon those hackers out there who do such things just for the heck of it, to go and hack the living crap out of this website. The only way I can see to make an impact on behalf of Mr. Tebow is to call upon the media, our politicians and religious leaders to rise up and make a public hue and outcry against such an attack on morals.
But this won't happen. The very people who I would call upon to do this would never do it. Hackers are probably making book on Tim's fall. Politicians are probably slinking into their dark hidey holes because they use this website's services. The media are probably laughing at the whole affair and hoping there's more news, one way or the other, to report on because sleaze sells.
Agree, disagree. But I hope you think about how bad this is. I pray you realize just what this assault and the lack of disgust over it will affect the American society your children and grandchildren will inherit.
Anyway, this is just me, Thinking Out Loud, and shaking my head in sadness.
Have a great day.
