The Denver Broncos have responded to a Changel.org petition signed by more than 8,000 people asking them to create an ‘It Gets Better’ video and more specifically asking that “Christian” football star Tim
Teabagger Tebow star in it by saying NO.
Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth in a statement to The Huffington Post:
The Denver Broncos are committed to tolerance, acceptance and respect for all in the community,” said Smyth. “The National Football League is currently working with USA Network on its ‘Characters Unite’ campaign combating prejudice and intolerance, and our organization is in full support of that movement to help raise awareness for this very important cause.”
I guess LGBT teen suicide just isn’t as important to the Bronco’s
Surprisingly The Denver Bronco’s had nothing to say and no problem allowing Tebow last year to produce and star in a Super Bowl ad for anti-gay, anti-abortion group Focus on the Family.
Why would we expect Tebow to care about gay teens or their persecution any more than members of NOM, AFA, or Westboro Church? He is far from the role model that mainstream America makes him out to be except perhaps a role model of “extremist Christianity”
The Denver Bronco’s on the other hand is a different story
