Actor Neil Patrick Harris has been accused of pushing an anti-Christian and pro-gay agenda in a new Super Bowl advert.
The How I Met Your Mother favourite donned Tim Tebow-style under eye face paint for the advertisement, with the date of the NFL championship final etched on his cheeks.
But he has been accused of 'mocking Christianity' in the promo, as it plays on the fact the New York Jets quarterback uses it as a device to print Bible verses.

Is blasphemy still a thing worth discussing?

some people are ******* idiots.
I do not, incodentslly, include Harris in that list.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Are they kidding?  Blasphemy because he didn't put a bible reference on his cheeks?  Is there a christian copyright on that I don't know about?

Interesting that when Beyonce did it there were no accusations that she was mocking Christianity in her advertisement.

"You cannot pass," he said. … "I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass."

Sharing our opinion is always a dangerous dance of free speech. 'This is who I am but your religion denies that this is who I am', yes, I can see Christianity is the one being mocked in the grand scheme of things.

Christianity is big business.

I will reserve judgment until I can actually watch the commercial for myself.

Beyonce also self-identifies as a Christian.

I don't really know much about Tebow but he probably deserves to be mocked for putting himself on a pedestal. I somehow don't think he cares about this or considers it mocking.

So is Hollywood.

I wonder which will grow up first because they fight like little children.

They are always making Christians look foolish in roles.

Christians are always complaining about movies.

Sounds like they are not mature enough to respect others who think different.

But nevermind if you are not a Christian you would not recognize it or be in tune for how Christians are portrayed in movies.

I couldn't stand How I met your mother, all of the characters were pointless and annoying. Even the theme song irritated me.

Let's be real, it's because he's a gay man.

Beyonce gets away with it despite dressing in outfits that only pollute the nightmares of all those young Christian boys who obviously don't think of things like that. :passifier: :innocent:

Also, that's pretty corny too; writing bible verses on their faces...Just for fun i'd put Ezek 9:6 on my face, be interesting to see what happens.

I think the real blasphemy here is that ESPN took a poll to see who people would want to see do the half time show and 2/3rds said Van Halen.  Who do we get then?  Beyonce.....
