We have allowed the squeaky, irritating, nail on the black board people to delegate policy for our rights. This is not one of the, Jesus taught, turn the other cheek times. By not screaming louder, demanding our GOD given, American constitutional rights to freedom of speech, and freedom of religion, we are setting America up to repeat the devastating history that we have seen in such places as China. Look at the spin this proposed NCAA rule is using. One of the biggest fears on everyone’s mine, terrorism. They are using terrorism as a screen to shield the fact that they are trampling all over our freedoms of speech and religion. Have we given the message that we are so stupid as not to catch on? It is NOW time we SCREEM LOUDER. GOD blessed us through Tebow’s obedience to shine for JESUS. Let us make this our “straw that breaks the camels back”. Lift up your life light with me to let the NCAA and everyone else know we will not take it anymore!!!!!!!
The NCAA's Football Rules Committee met Thursday and came up with several recommendations for new rules, including stricter penalties for taunting and tougher guidelines for when players can return from concussions.
Another rule the panel proposed was banning writing of any kind on the eye black players wear - an obvious response to the Bible verses that Tim Tebow wore for the past two seasons. Players would not be able to use any words, logos or symbols on the eye black, beginning next season. That rule, as well as the others proposed, would have to be approved by the Playing Rules Oversight Panel. The NCAA's move seems transparent: It was afraid a player would put something controversial on the eye black - an Islamic message, maybe? - and wanted to keep that from happening, but figured it would lose that PR battle if the rule was implemented while Tebow was still playing.
