Thank God (no pun intended). Now I don't have to deal with that drama from people.
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it."
- Lord Dunsany -

"The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? "
- W. B. Yeats -

There are a good number of New York Jets fans where I live...I had to deal with it for an entire year.

You're lucky.
Why?

Yeah, it's just so annoying to constantly hear people who think that he's the second coming of Christ arguing against people who think that he's a spokesman for the Taliban. He's either an idiot, or an opportunist who uses ostentatious displays of faith to garner support amongst so-called Christian fans, who obviously don't know that engaging in such displays was explicitly discouraged by Christ himself.

"Therefore when thou givest thine alms, thou shalt not make a trumpet to be blown before thee, as the hypocrites do in the Synagogues and in the streets, to be praised of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.

But when thou doest thine alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth,

That thine alms may be in secret, and thy Father that seeth in secret, he will reward thee openly.

And when thou prayest, be not as the hypocrites: for they love to stand and pray in the Synagogues, and in the corners of the streets, because they would be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.

But when thou prayest, enter into thy chamber: and when thou hast shut thy door, pray unto thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

[...]

Lay not up treasures for yourselves upon the earth, where the moth and canker corrupt, and where thieves dig through and steal.

But lay up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither the moth nor canker corrupteth, and where thieves neither dig through nor steal.

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. "
- Matthew 6 -

Tebow and Michael Sam are proof that the US hates Christians and gays.

Lol, the US just hates obnoxious people, which both of them were. Jesus Christ, I'm gay and the whole Michael Sam thing annoyed me.

I know, I was further expanding on why what you were saying was deserved mockery. Hence the 'lol'.

Got it. I personally enjoy watching the media circus around players like Tebow and Lin. I find it hilarious to see their diehard fan base insist they are amazing, and get super defensive and angry when they don't play. It's just funny to watch for some reason. I guess it wouldn't be as funny if they were on my team and I had to deal with their delusional fans, lol.

Yeah, that was the most annoying thing for me. I don't know much about football, but it seems like the general consensus is that both players are mediocre at best, and that the fandom is entirely ideology-driven.

Professional sports is one of the most capitalistic things in this country. If he doesn't measure up, then he's gone. It's about the performance.
