Of course Heisman Trophy winner, Tim Tebow, is and will continue to be all over the media as the
Super Bowl approaches and the microcosm of pro-life v pro-death voices continue to elevate
to a fevered pitch, culminating in an ad during the biggest game of the year, or not . . .
But for today, there is a neat side effect as the tempest in a teapot rages.
The Denver Post's Sunday edition has a relatively balanced editorial, "Nothing Wrong With Tebow Ad," written by a self-proclaimed agnostic.
While I can agree with his sentiments,
"Progressives who are protesting against CBS for deciding to air a Focus on the Family ad during the Super Bowl are likely hurting their cause more than serving it.
I'm an agnostic who supports a woman's right to choose and not given to feeling protective of Focus on the Family. But in this case, I think the Christian ministry is being bullied. Why shouldn't the group be allowed to showcase Pam Tebow, the pro-life Christian mother of Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow?"
I think the bigger story for me is the photo accompanying our local coverage of the national flap - a sweet one of Tim and his Mom, Pam.
Tim has some scripture in the black football players wear below their eyes in order to deflect glare.
When I did a Google search on Ephesians to see what message he was trying to send the world, this week as he stands in the spotlight, I was incredulous to discover the first verse to pop up with Ephesians put in the search window was the verse under his eyes - Ephesians 2:8-10.
While the feminist harpies, squeal about whether Pam Tebow's noble choice should be aired during the Super Bowl, they would be wiser to ponder the meaning of the verse this humble young man chose to impact hearts and minds.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."

Baby Isaiah given 3 days to live by government
Parents fight socialized-medicine machine to keep newborn from having plug pulled
By Drew Zahn
Isaiah James May was born a little after 5 p.m. on Oct. 24, 2009, and was scheduled to die this past week – on Wednesday, Jan. 20 – just short of his three-month birthday.
That was the day chosen by Canada's publicly funded, government health service as the deadline for Isaiah to recover from his traumatic birth or be taken off life-support.
"There is no hope of recovery for Isaiah," reads a letter from Alberta Health Services delivered to Isaiah's parents and dated one week before the health care system intended to pull the plug on the baby it has determined irreparably brain damaged.
"Your treating physicians regretfully have come to the conclusion that withdrawal of active treatment is medically reasonable, ethically responsible and appropriate," the letter states. "We must put the interests of your son foremost, and it is in his best interests to discontinue mechanical ventilation support."

On this anniversary of Martin Luther King's birthday, this Washington Times Op-ed piece by his niece, Dr. Alveda King, is a timely reminder of the epic struggle to restore legal protection to all lives from the beginning of their biological development.
The burgeoning Personhood movement is on the march and will, at the same time, help restore MLK's dream of recognizing the inherent human rights, dignity and worth of all human beings.
Pastor Walter Hoye and Lila Rose are heading up the California Personhood effort and their focus on civil rights is front and center.
Thank you, Dr. Alveda King for reminding us what this generational struggle is really about!
"The abortionist's eye is on us"
Alveda C. King
Let me begin by telling you that two of 50 million children taken away by abortionists since 1973 were mine. I can still see them in my mind's eye.
Like many black women, I once believed the doctor who told me my babies were no more than "a blob of tissue." I wanted to believe it. Eventually, I realized I was wrong, that I was a secondary victim of abortion. I repented and found healing through God. Today, I work in the civil rights movement of the our century -- the right of every one of every race to live.
I am asking you to join me. Let me tell you why. Abortion and racism are evil twins, born of the same lie. Where racism now hides its face in public, abortion is accomplishing the goals of which racism only once dreamed. Together, abortionists are destroying humanity at large and the black community in particular.
Abortion has taken a gruesome toll on the black community, killing more than AIDS and crime combined. Some 14 million black babies have been aborted since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in all stages in all 50 states. That's equal to one-third of the number of blacks living today.

'Personhood' to be theme at 2010 Roe anniversary
Blackmun: If this is established, abortion 'rights' would, of course, 'collapse'

At the annual March for Life Jan. 22, pro-life groups will use the anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision to raise the profile of "personhood."
The term is used by a movement in state legislatures to define unborn babies as persons, affording them the same guaranteed right to life as all other Americans.
Probably the first definitive statement on the idea came from Justice Harry Blackmun, who wrote the majority opinion for Roe v. Wade, when he said: "The appellee and certain amici [pro-lifers] argue that the fetus is a 'person' within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment. In support of this, they outline at length and in detail the well-known facts of fetal development. If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant's case, of course, collapses, for the fetus' right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment."

Personhood Colorado 2010's Co-sponsor, Gualberto Garcia Jones, Youtube video brings to life the oral arguments phase of the actual Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision.
This year's March for Life events around the country are guaranteed to bring hope to a nation weary of over 40 years of destroying innocent lives - hope for the first time that, "abortion might end in my lifetime."

Shocking Reversal: Researcher at National Cancer Institute Admits Abortions DO Raise Breast Cancer Risks
"Although the study was published nine months ago, the NCI, the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and other cancer fundraising businesses have made no efforts to reduce breast cancer rates by issuing nationwide warnings to women."
Less than two months since the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force issued new guidelines recommending against routine mammograms for women in their forties, a second breast cancer scandal involving a U.S. government panel of experts has come to light which has implications for healthcare reform.
An April 2009 study by Jessica Dolle et al. of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center examining the relationship between oral contraceptives (OCs) and triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) in women under age 45 contained an admission from U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) researcher Louise Brinton and her colleagues (including Janet Daling) that abortion raises breast cancer risk by 40%.
