    Everyone please kneel and bow your heads and repeat after me:

    The Apostles' Creed 2011: (updated by yours truly based on the studies of NT historians and theologians of the past 200 years)

    Should I believe in a god whose existence cannot be proven
    and said god if he/she/it exists resides in an unproven,
    human-created, spirit state of bliss called heaven?????

    I believe there was a 1st century CE, Jewish, simple,
    preacher-man who was conceived by a Jewish carpenter
    named Joseph living in Nazareth and born of a young Jewish
    girl named Mary. (Some say he was a mamzer.)

    Jesus was summarily crucified for being a temple rabble-rouser by
    the Roman troops in Jerusalem serving under Pontius Pilate,

    He was buried in an unmarked grave and still lies
    a-mouldering in the ground somewhere outside of

    Said Jesus' story was embellished and "mythicized" by
    many semi-fiction writers. A bodily resurrection and
    ascension stories were promulgated to compete with the
    Caesar myths. Said stories were so popular that they
    grew into a religion known today as Catholicism/Christianity
    and featuring dark-age, daily wine to blood and bread to body rituals
    called the eucharistic sacrifice of the non-atoning Jesus.

    It is suppose to be that the defense was tremendous, but there is the intangible "phenomenon Tebow". I guess that deserves discussion about what the Broncos record would have Kyle Orton continued to play. It looked like a losing team with Orton. The D is great, but Tebow say what someone should get some credit for the 7-1. QB is usually judged by victory and defeat plain and simple. The numbers may not be there but the most important. Now this could be the Trent Dilfer argument again, but these reimbursements fourth quarter just make the discussion more interesting.anyway, for more news, we can visit http://www.tebowformvp.com/... thanx

      I think the name of the Tebow phenomenon is "defense".

      The fact that you want to endorse Tebow as a good QB and possible MVP candidate makes me wonder if you have ever watched the broncos play.

      You said, "Thanks for taking my comment off now I know who CNN is FOR!"

      Nobody at CNN is reading your posts. There are no human censors. CNN uses automated censoring that looks for words, or fragments of words, that are considered offensive. My guess is that your post had had a forbidden word in it. Posts that contain too many URLs will also get rejected.

      Repeat posts, even those that were previously censored and not displayed, will show a message stating that you posted it before.

      The following words or word fragments will get your post censored (list is incomplete):
      wonderful us (don't ask.....)

      To circumvent the filters you can break up the words by putting an extra character in, like: consti.tution (breaking the oh so naughty "tit").

      I am a Brit and will ask you to please refer to Mr. Morgan in the manner us Brit's know him, and that is "The Slime" If you type in Google 'the slime piers' you will see why we are so happy he is with you and not us. He was fired from the newspaper that shut itself down because of Murdoch's acceptance of the cesspool his paper was AND MORGAN WAS FIRED YEARS BEFORE, AS HE IS A PROVEN LIAR, AN ILLEGAL TRADER IN SHARES, AND JUST A TOTAL WASTE OF SPACE, AND MOST IMPORTANT, IN THE UK TOTALLY IRRELEVANT, PLEASE, DOUBLE PLEASE, KEEP HIM!!!!!!!!!

    Now that the Jews have forced(!) their way into the "Christmas Holiday", I can't wait to see what they come up for Easter. Perhaps a pig roastring on a fire–instead of an Easter Egg Hunt. Or, maybe Abraham raising from a volcano !

    From what I hear, Piers may need all the Devine help he can get after his testimony in the British tabloid phone hacking scandal was rebuffed.

    If you’re upset that congressional approval of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 can send you away to military prisons and be tortured in America, don’t worry — it could be worse.
    The US could send you somewhere else.
    No, really. They could. And they can. Anywhere else, too. Really.
    While the bill that left Capitol Hill last week and awaits authorization from US President Barack Obama allows for the United States to indefinitely detain and torture American citizens suspected of aiding enemy forces, one provision in the bill specifies that that detention doesn’t necessarily have to occur domestically — nor does it have to be in a foreign prison run by the US.
    The ongoing detention of foreign terror suspects at the US base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba has been a hot topic since the War on Terror began, with American military authorities torturing could-be criminals without ever bringing them to trial. An exposé years earlier on the Abu Ghraib facility in Iraq revealed how American troops were subjecting detainees to disgusting, inhumane conditions; conditions which left some dead without ever going to trial. While Abu Ghraib has since been shut down, Guantanamo Bay continues to hold suspected criminals despite a promise to Obama to shut it down.
    When the commander-in-chief inks his name to NDAA FY2012, Americans can be on their way to the same torture cells that have kept al-Qaeda and Taliban-linked terrorists for the last decade. It’s now been revealed, however, that US citizens and anyone suspected of a crime against America can be sent all over the world.
    Under the legislation, the president has the power to transfer suspected terrorists "to the custody or control of the person's country of origin, any other foreign country, or any other foreign enti.ty."
    China? Sure. Iran? Why not! North Korea? That’s a possibility too. David Glazier, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, tells Mother Jones that this was an authority that the president has had before, but only under the new NDAA is the legislation endorsed and insured that it could be applied to Americans.
    "If the president could lawfully transfer a German prisoner of war to a foreign country, then in theory he could do the same thing with an American prisoner of war," Glazier says.
    Under the Feinstein Amendment imposed under NDAA FY2012, the Democratic senator from California proposed a law which would not change “existing law” with regards to detaining Americans. As Mother Jones notes, however, the jury is still out on what exactly “existing law” is when it comes to the topic, with those suspected of hostilities against America already being imprisoned without trial — citizen and otherwise. Both US-born Bradley Manning has been under military watch, isolation and torture for nearly two years, and the same has applied to a countless number of suspected terrorists at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib.
    Al Franken, a Democrat senator from Minnesota, wrote in an op-ed last week that the provisions put in NDAA such as Feinstein Amendment were enough for some lawmakers to sign onto the legislation, but he said the final draft was still “simply unacceptable.”
    “These provisions are inconsistent with the liberties and freedoms that are at the core of the system our Founders established. And while I did in fact vote for an earlier version of the legislation, I did so with the hope that the final version would be significantly improved. That didn't happen, and so I could not support the final bill,” wrote Franken.

    I hope the next article is about tim tebow being on his left knee instead of the right......

    Honestly though, I understand that this blog doesn't always pick the most interesting or "newsworthy" stories, but whoever is on the otherside of this at CNN..... please, something a little more interesting instead of another tebow article.........

      They are avoiding the hard news and going with the lame stuff. Can I interest you in a slightly used dreidl?

      It is a perfect reflection of what we see on these boards. Christians and the Church getting mocked. Now, I do not understand a great deal of science or math yet, I do not mock scientists etc. Those who do not see the truths which have been passed down over the years and recorded in the Bible resort to mock mock mock. What is even more interesting is that at the cross there were two by Jesus one mocked with his last breath and the other showed compasion. That is your picture of truth about man and his relationship with God and the world. Man had a choice between two trees in the garden the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of Good and evil. The CNN choice is obvious.

      fred, a talk-show host is imitating a football player. There is really nothing here about Jesus. It's more about the cult of Tebow. Anyone with half a sense of humor is rolling their eyes.

      "Those who do not see the truths which have been passed down over the years and recorded in the Bible resort to mock mock mock. "

      The fact that you regard that book as "truth" when it was written by humans no smarter than you or I is laughable. The fact that you christians feel the need to scare people into believing your "truth" is sad. The fact that you even believe that you "know" the "truth" about our existence and the universe is extremely ignorant.

      “the fact that you regard that book as "truth" when it was written by humans no smarter than you or I is laughable.”
      =>It is the truth if you wish to discover how to have a relationship with God, how the chosen one failed over time in that relationship, how you can find the promised land / hope / city on the hill etc and most importantly see God they saw Him over time.
      “The fact that you christians feel the need to scare people into believing your "truth" is sad.”
      => Sorry, if that is your impression, Christians are to love and serve their neighbors. Yes, preach the gospel is part of serving. We want you to experience what we experience when God is with us.
      “ The fact that you even believe that you "know" the "truth" about our existence and the universe is extremely ignorant.”
      =>That is the definition of faith to know what cannot be seen or explained in the physical. Faith explains what science cannot. We do not say we know the mass of matter in the absence of kinetic energy only that we know God. We do not put say love on a Petri dish and claim to know its origin.
