NFL Penalizes Husain Abdullah For Tebowing to Not Jesus

The point to the sky. Thanks for helping me beat that other team.

According to the NFL, Abdullah was penalized for “going to the ground” in celebration of a Tom Brady pick 6. Looking at the NFL rule book, any post-touchdown celebration is a 15 yard penalty, with prayer being the only exception…apparently depending on the God.

If you are going to flag a Muslim for tebowing, then let’s keep the ball rolling.  It’s time to start penalizing the finger point to the sky.
