My Superbowl Letdown

Probably the thing that I was most looking forward to talking about this week was that big controversy over the Tim Tebow Anti-Abortion Superbowl ad.

The endless internal war from the liberals between free speech and civil rights finally comes to a head when the pro-lifers fork out the dough and convince millions of women to change their evil and heathenish ways.

Or… not, that’s cool too.

When the subject of the controversy finally aired, and then I watched it on YouTube three hours later, I was completely underwhelmed. Sure, it had all the cheesy, fake, family-oriented, vomit-inducing factors of a conservative trying to sell me something, but what was the product? The ad was for a website,, which I went to, just out of curiosity. After perusing the site for about ten minutes, I found the word “pray” in bold a few too many times for my liking, but other than that, I couldn’t find anything more than not-so-subtle Christian bias telling me not to have an abortion.

So I’m trying to figure out who won in this situation. I want to say it’s a pro-lifer fail, because they didn’t convince me of anything. But on the other hand, they didn’t attempt to encourage anyone to overturn Roe v. Wade either, or try overly hard to change my religion. Plus, there was a group that did try to get the commercial banned, which I am so not ok with.

So, I’m going to go with a pro-choice: fail on this one. Weird, I know. Well, I suppose you don’t know, but that is not at all like me.
