Why did his mother, after choosing not to abort him, then name him "Time"?
 
Odd.

They just said "Time runs out on the first half."  Did Tebow do that?

eh.

because of the uproar about it, I expected something along the lines of 'Unlike the godless liberal heathen Democrats, I chose to keep my baby!'

wouldn't have surprised me in the least if it had been something like that.

My local AM talk station in Los Angeles got a copy late last week and played it one time. They played interviews about it before playing the ad spot. Even then, it seemed "much ado about nothing", as ThreadKiller mentioned earlier.

But as the host mentioned on the radio show, after playing the spot, it opens the door for more political spots (in the Super Bowl) in the future.

Actually, Faith, the radio show specifically mentioned that this ad opened the door for Planned Parenthood, and others of that ilk,  placing ads in the future. And not just about abortion, but other issues as well.

Yeah, you're right.  Although Planned Parenthood didn't have the money to run an ad during the Superbowl.

This is the second time I can think of that CBS (not sure if it was the Superbowl) refused ads of a more liberal bent.

Nothing offensive from what I saw. It was certainly better than the POS moveon.org sneaked into the 2004 Super bowl via the Local TV Slots. (They did this after CBS Refused to carry their Ad.) Many Advertisers, knowing their Ads contain offensive material will do this because the Local Stations don't have the money to take on any Legal Challenges the advertiser may toss their way if they refuse to carry the Ad. This is why you see things like "ED Pill' Ads aired during Childrens Shows!Angry
 
(It was during the 2004 Super Bowl I began questioning WHY was I paying for the "Priviledge" of watching TV, you all know what I did three years later!)LOL

wow the left needs to pick their battles a lot better... (speaking from the left) this was a rather uneventful if not thoughtful ad.
"waaah they shared their beliefs and wanted to share it in order to convey the message that theirs is right and others are wrong! "

Feminists are "NOW" pissed-off over the violence in this commercial.  They say that Tim tackling his mother promotes violence against women.
 
from Terry O'Neill, president of NOW:
 
"I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it. That's what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don't find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself."
 
No statement issued about the violence against Betty White in her commercial.

I kept waiting for the rebuttal commercial featuring some grief stricken father who would tell the tale of convincing his wife to go through with her pregnancy when they had the same diagnosis only to watch his baby anguish in pain until it finally died in her arms and then she went crazy and took an overdose of pills a month later.
 
Never saw it though.

It's not the violence they're really complaining about. You KNOW they wanted to complain about the whole abortion issue, stating that it's a woman's right to choose, blah blah blah. Well, Mrs. Tebow chose to have her baby instead of kill it...doesn't that constitute as a woman's right to choose?

When I went to bible college back in 91 we were often met with the standard anti abortion dialogue one would expect at a conservative Christian college.
One morning at chapel this highly respected and nearly revered minister was guest speaker and was talking about hot button issues and the church. He then said, "God, is pro choice"
The sound of an administration and 500+ kids choking back bile and discomfort was telling.
He then went on further to talk of free will and Christ taking ownership of the keys to life and death from the devil during the "three days" and so on.

Needless to say the campus was divided that day and that moment was talked about and referenced for the rest of the year.

One of the greatest moments of my time there.
I witnessed a man of God who thinks.

Well, supposedly the Bible refers to the unborn as humans and "children".  And combined with "Thou shalt not kill", I can't see how a minister or priest or rabbi could put forth the pro-choice sentiment.  Otherwise, from what I understand, the Bible doesn't say anything about abortion per sé.  The only pro-choice argument I've ever heard from the standpoint of the Bible is that God gives us free will.  But that argument doesn't mean he approves.  We have the free will to do all sorts of things---it doesn't mean it's all OK.
 
So, from a religious or Biblical standpoint, I don't see how abortion could be considered OK.

That's why they didn't bother with the fact that Betty White was tackled, too.  Had White stated she was anti-abortion, they'd probably have complained about her commercial, too.

And yet the church supports pro-war candidates. I thought war killed humans and children as well?

You might wanna do some research on the translation and meaning of "Thou shalt not kill" (has to do with killing versus murder).  In addition, the Bible found just grounds for numerous wars.  It never said that war was never justified.
