Not sure about any of that.. But here in Florida Tebow IS a religion. And make no mistake about it, his public Christianity is one major reason for it. 

 

IMO his religion shouldn't be a reason to like or dislike him. But that's just me.

I bought a mango tree that isn't very good just because a nursery rebranded it as the Tebow Mango:wub:

He personally, no, but he has spoken on platforms and supported events by certain organisations with some pretty distasteful views. 

That’s a hell of a stretch to justify the hatred and vitriol I’ve seen on Twitter

I searched and found nothing.

He did cancel a few speaking appointments to avoid controversy.

I don't speak for Twitter. I speak for myself. 

What did Tebow say that was so "distasteful"?

Tebow himself, nothing. But anyone who has shared platforms with pastors who practice conversion therapy will get zero respect from me. Ever.

Googling Tebow and conversion therapy gives ZERO results.

 

Was this one of those things where someone on Twitter heard "Christian" and immediately assigned every awful thing they imagined onto Tebow?

Tim Tebow associates with Focus on the Family which is an organization that advocates against LGBTQ rights including promoting conversion therapy.

I am not on Twitter. Look into some of the organisations he has worked with and delivered speeches for. Tim Tebow has spoken at Passion Conferences numerous times. That is a movement founded by a pastor by the name of Louie Giglio a renowned homophobe who supports conversion therapy.

Yep they are another one. You really do not have too dig far. 

 

He has an unfortunate habit of associating with groups with similar views.

I won't lie, I'm pretty disappointed. I've never seen a player get as much undeserved hate as Tebow. I wanted him to make the team, have a semi productive season, and retire w/ dignity. I guess a piece of my childhood died when I heard this news. His Florida years got me into college football permanently. Good luck & God bless you, Tim. 😇

I believe getting cut first in training camp is how it was meant to end. And Tebow does too.

I actually have nothing against Tim Tebow the person. However, this was never going to be a success, which is why I didn’t understand the purpose, and I’m good with this Tebow as an NFL player experiment being over. I wanted Tebow to succeed as a QB the first time around, but this TE experiment was never logical.

Fact, the Jags cut Tebow so he could finally find his true calling as our Tight End. :wub:

There are so many religious players in the NFL who do great things for their community. People don't have a problem with Tebow just because he's religious. It's the way he goes about it. Gloating and seeking the spotlight. Gotta give him credit for promoting his brand so well, but that's all it is. And people have gotten hooked on that brand. Hence the awesome jersey sales ^^^.

Louie Giglio was canceled when a speech he gave in the 90's accused activists of "normalizing" the gay lifestyle. As of 2021, he's was dead-on accurate with that prediction. (FYI, Obama invited him to make a speech before the controversy).

 

What I can find is that all Christian beliefs point to homosexuality as a sin. So Tebow is guilty of associating with other Christians.

 

edit. addendum: People don't hate him because he's Christian, they hate him for practicing it out in the open.

People hate the guy for his religion. It's that simple.

 

Why shouldn't my lifestyle be "normalized"? Giglio is a homophobe and a pretty nasty one at that. I get it, Christianity teaches I am a sinner, but when people in the 21st century want to espouse homophobic views I am not going to sit and listen to them and just say "oh well that's just their religion." I'm going to call it out. And Tim Tebow, while to the best of my knowledge has never personally expressed homophobic views publicly, has an unfortunate history of associating with folks who do and who support things like conversion therapy. As a non-heterosexual atheist does that offend me? Yes it does. Do I hate Tim Tebow? No. Do I respect him? Also no.

What's different about Tebow? Star college QB -> poor NFL starter who had a magical run -> left football to try to make it in baseball and started at the very bottom. Advanced to AA? Ultimately didn't make it. -> tries to return to the NFL as Taysom Hill on the wrong side of 30.

 

Please tell me where you've seen this before, because I haven't.

 

He never advanced anywhere in baseball.  He was a hired freak show to generate interest.  It never had anything to do with baseball.  Not to Tebow and not to the Mets organization.  He was Michael Jordan-bad.  Just like this "return to the NFL."  He and daddy Urban both knew he wasn't going anywhere.  But it made headlines and generated interest in the team.  Attention w.hore.

Yup. Sold some jerseys. Give it 3 years and he'll be trying out for kicker.
