RGIII is getting married... to a woman who and his mom texts him a scripture before every game — "whatever the Lord lays on my heart..."

"... to let him know that this is just another battle and you’re gonna do this with God’s help. And it works for us."

And his mom says, "he still has that shyness to him and that quietness to him... He loves being at home, quiet and to himself. That hasn’t changed."

Football!

ADDED: As KLDAVIS corrects me in the comments, it's the mom who texts the Bible verses.

Good for him.

He sounds like a good guy.

Griffith and Tebow are both Southern Baptists and are quite open in expressing their faith in God.

It makes one wonder where their strength comes from. Public expression of faith in Hebrew scriptures is not an approved life style these days. It may be illegal under current Constitutional mis-interpretations. It is suddenly illegal in the US Armed forces.

Professor, you've elided too much. Read again, more closely. It's his mother that sends RGIII the bible verses, not his future wife.

what's with the "lightweight religion" tag?

Yep. It's momma that sends him bible verses. It's a mother's day story.

How hard is that to figure out?

Good for him. I wish the couple the best.

That doesn't change the fact that Russell Wilson was the better rookie quarterback last season.

RGIII was also one of the best high school intermediate hurdlers in the country his senior year.

Correction made.

Sorry, I got carried away at the idea of the old-fashioned fiancee.

Cornball Brother #10 is alright by me.

I guess Althouse thinks football players having religion is tacky or something.

They really assume you know this guy. There's no reference to what sport he plays.

Lem said...

When I saw the 'to a woman' crossed out, I though it was a complicated? tread about gays and professional football.

So I skipped it.

Nice story.

@Freeman: It is the WashPo.

As a Giants fan (former World Champions), I hate that I like this guy so much.

Althouse thinks that anyone who has religion is tacky. Haven't you been paying attention.
