Most Americans Approve of Tebow’s Pro-Life Ad During Super Bowl

Most American say they approve of the decision by CBS to air Focus On The Family pro-life ad featuring Florida Gator star quarterback Tim Tebow, according to a recent Marist Poll.

In the nationwide survey of 1,072, 60 percent of Americans said they approved of the decision by CBS. Thirty percent they disapproved.

It was not a big surprise to see fewer than 60 percent of those who identified themselves as Democrats, liberals, moderates, residents in the West and Northeast, making over $50,000 a year, and over 50 years old approving of a pro-life ad during the Super Bowl. Likewise, it would have been mind boggling had over 60 percent those who self-identified themselves as Republican, conservative, residents in the Midwest and South, making under $50,000, and under 50 year old not approved.

Interestingly, education and gender were among the factors differentiating those who are for or against the pro-life ad. The greatest point of difference was age. Of those 18-29 year of age, 77 percent were in favor of Tim Tebow’s escape from abortion pro-life plug. That was 14 percent higher than the 30-44 age group, 19 percent greater than the 45-59ers, and a 26 percent
chasm between the over 60 sexual revolutionary socialist generation and the 18-29 millennial generation.

Xenia AIA Sports

In 2007, Athletes In Action constructed a state-of-the-art sports complex consisting of baseball, football and soccer fields. The complex hosts many high-profile sports tournaments, ranging from Collegiate Baseball games, Mid-American Conference Tournaments, American Mideast Conference Tournaments, OHSAA and many others. AIA Sports Complex is a highly sought after facility.

Last month, the Planning and Zoning Department approved the construction of a bleacher stand for the baseball fields. It will have 750 seats, media seating and other amenities. Considering the average team that competes at AIA brings 25 players and 4 coaches, the number of spectators including parents, friends, scouts, media and Xenia community members could be utilizing these much needed bleachers.

It would be a crime if I failed to mention the Xenia AIA team’s next at-home game is June 25. Game starts at 7pm.
