Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad still talk of the town(s)
Representatives of Focus on the Family, the faith-based organization sponsoring the much talked about Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad, said the 30-second spot will air for the first time sometime during the first quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The ad continues to cause talk as football fans await the game between the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts.
I’ve seen lots of opinions on the issue being bandied about on the Internet in the days since I last posted a blog on this issue. I just got a news release today that says an anti-abortion group called Wisconsin Right to Life has produced a Tim Tebow mask that people can wear on Sunday to show their support for Tebow and his mother Pam. For those who haven’t heard about the ad yet (it’s possible, I guess), CBS has agreed to air a Focus on the Family ad featuring Tebow’s mother, who will share her decision against abortion when she was pregnant with the young college football star. Some pro-choice groups are upset about the ad and demanding that CBS refuse to air it, while anti-abortion groups are rallying in its favor.
Back on the masks, Barbara Lyons, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life, said in a news release that they are a way to have a little fund and show the public that Tim and his Mom and Dad are “an inspiration to all of us.”

Meanwhile, I saw lots of comments concerning my last posting on this issue.
I asked what people thought about the ad, whether CBS should air it or not. Here are a few responses:
“I hate Tim Tebow, as any Sooner should, but I say run it. How one-sided are we as a country if we cannot at least allow both side to be heard?” — EJP
“I’m confused by this reaction. Isn’t the pro-choice movement in support of choice? Why is it wrong for this mother to say she chose to have her child? — Cara
