Truth is, when it comes to hating Tebow, it’s never about hating him, because really what is there to hate? He’s a nice guy who gives of himself and doesn’t have anything bad to say about anybody. Seriously, he’s been criticized more than LeBron James’ “Decision.”
The vultures either can’t or don’t want to believe that Tim Tebow is real. That’s why they’ve been circling for years, convinced he would eventually provide them something juicy to sink their teeth into. So when the report came out that he refused to play, it didn’t matter if they heard from him first. It was all they needed to confirm to themselves he is the fraud they’ve wanted him to be all along.

Yes, I am a Tim Tebow fan. Not my favourite QB, that would be Eli Manning, but I have Mad Respect for Tim Tebow.
I have admired how he stands his ground on his Faith. How he’s not afraid to live it, show it, and share it.
I see him as a Role Model, not just for kids but for all of us in general.
You see, as a teen, I remember being on the bus on the way to school, obviously surrounded by many others, peers, adults, others…and when we would pass in front of a Catholic Church, I would not acknowledge His Presence out of fear of being mocked at, laughed at, ridiculed!
I was always taught that when passing in front of His Presence you are to make the Sign of the Cross. A very simple act, but a very telling one. No one else on that bus did it, I did not want to be singled out.
I have regretted this inaction on my part many, many a time in my adult life.
I am quite ashamed to admit that having aged – not grown-up, for I lack MUCH Maturity – has not improved my persona in every situation.
I do make the Sign of the Cross now, but I still find myself censoring myself in many circumstances, simply to “Keep the Peace.”
Yes, simply put, I am a coward. And I have many, many examples of this.
It is precisely my cowardice that brings me to admire Tebow!
My admiration began when NFL Players, the Media and Society itself began mocking his “Tebowing.”
And it continued when he came out Pro-Life unashamed.
It grew more when he stated with much Pride that he was a Virgin and was waiting for Marriage!
THIS is what our Society needs! What our Youth Need! Someone that demonstrates that it is OKAY to go against the Moral Relativism and Political Correctness that suffocates our Societies.
He’s a Christian and Proud to Shout it to the winds!
But oh how he – the other guy – hates that anyone or anything that Praises or gives Glory to our Lord be acknowledged or credited in any way!
How do I know for Certain that Tim Tebow is Good, because all these attacks on him simply confirm The Beatitudes in Matthew Chapter 5. Specifically, 5:11
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
AND, the more he PROVES that we can ALL live our Faith!! We just have to CHOOSE to do so…
I guess it’s a good thing that they do NOT “let up in the senseless attacks of Tim Tebow” as Jay Hart’s article is titled. It just allows us to see how great our Faith CAN be!!
