WATCH: Focus On The Family's Appeal To NFL Fans

Picture 29

During yesterday's Broncos-Patriots NFL match, Focus On The Family ran a treacly ad in which a parade of children said:

John 3:16: For God so loved the world -- the whole world -- everyone -- anyone! -- that's a lot of people! -- that He gave His one and only son -- His only son -- that whoever believs in Him will not perish, but have life eternal. Life! Wow!

Presumably, the notable hate group chose to build its ad around John 3:16 because that's the favorite verse of Broncos quarterback and SuperChristian Tim Tebow, who famously used to write "John 3:16" in the antiglare greasepaint beneath his eyes. The PR value of the citation is questionable in light of yesterday's game, in which The Lord God Almighty -- with whom Tim Tebow likes to credit his team's victories -- abandoned the Broncos entirely. Verily, the Patriots did whip them like dogs.

Regardless, there's a petition going around at Change.org politely requesting that CBS cease airing ads by hate groups like Focus On The Family. And you can watch a detourned version of the Focus ad designed by Adam Mordecai AFTER THE JUMP ...

  1. Todd, would you feel differently if the KKK had sponsored the same ad?

  2. I'm afraid that is impossible Todd. They've made it clear that they will accept nothing short of recriminalization, and--drawn to the logical conclusion--making it OK to torture and/or kill us again.
