Tim Tebow Strikes ‘Sexy Jesus’ Pose For GQ

tim tebow

What’s more controversial? The fact that Tim Tebow, a second string quarterback, is on the cover of a national magazine, or that he strikes a sexy Jesus pose in one of the photos? Whatever topic you choose, one thing is for sure: Tim Tebow got people talking today after the latest issue of GQ hit newsstands.

According to Fox News, the controversial shirtless photo isn’t a new photo. The photo was originally taken while Tebow was playing for the Florida Gators. GQ touched up the image, removed any Gators references, and posted the photo online under the title “Have You Accepted Tim Tebow as Your QB and Sunday Savior?”

So yes, GQ is definitely playing into the controversy. And, well, so is Tebow.

The former Broncos Quarterback was traded from his 8-8 team last year for an aging veteran and is now playing backup to Mark Sanchez. For most players, that wouldn’t warrant a GQ cover. But there is so much hype around the Mile High Messiah that magazine covers and tabloid covers are bound to follow.

Author Devin Gordon writes:

“(Tebow-mania) has nothing to do with football…. It’s a sales pitch—a sensation built on evangelism, not ability, powered by people who see a chance to turn the NFL into the next front of the culture war… And now that culture war is coming to my team.”

Craig Carton, host of the WFAN sports radio show in New York City, was shocked at the “huge ego” that Tebow put on display by posing for the photo. Tebow has become famous for his strong Christian beliefs, but Carton says that it only takes one look at the “sexy Jesus” photo to find out what’s really important to Tebow.

Carton called Tebow a “narcissist,” a “fraud,” and an “ego-maniac,” saying:

“He gets it, he plays the role… He’s typically very, very sincere and very, very consistent about who he is and what his beliefs are… (But) You just saw a little inkling into what he thinks of himself.”

What do you think about Tim Tebow? Is he just tabloid fodder? Do you think he’ll help the New Y0rk Jets this year?

    This sounds a lot like envy to me. I'm not a fan of Tebow's game, but I admire his values and wholesome image. Its ridiculous the way the haters follow this dude around and keep on saying every nasty thing imaginable about him. I'd bet that these attitudes towards him would be very different if he was a trashy slacker with cheesy tattoos all over his body who regularly gets drunk and screwed every ho who throws herself at him. People hate the man because he's rich, young, attractive, popular, AND a Christian. The dude is blessed. He's having fun, he's earning his money honestly, and he's not hurting anyone. What's so objectionable about a person who loves God and chooses to live a clean and simple life?

    Seriously I don't know what this country is coming too. So much christian bashing. There use to be a time this country was built and based on the Bible. Now it is the complete opposite. Is it because so many people want to live their life the way they want and want to justify it? If so then you are all in for a rude awakening. The end of times is near just look at the world today and read Revelation. So keep on living your immoral lives people and keep bashing christians for their values but in the end you will pay for all your mockery. I for one would rather raise my children in a strong christian nation that looks out for each other than the world we have today where parents are killing their own children and all the drugs and violence we live with today. No one is safe not even in their own homes. I think its sad. I was blessed with a great childhood and all of us neighbors knew each other and us kids would just go from home to home and play all day until the street lights came on. No cell phones, no crime just innocent kids enjoying life and being raised by a village. Tebow keep up the good work we need more good clean role models since a lot of kids today don't even have parents who are role models.

    So he's a Christian? Big deal. That makes him better than a Jew, a Muslim, a Mormon, or an atheist? There are lots of non-Christians who are good parents, honest people, and good role models. The guy is a marginal athlete who doesn't beat his wife or do drugs. Again, so what. There are a lot of people out there who do good things for their community. Did Tebow give up an NFL contract to join the army and fight in Afghanistan? We're not haters. We're just tired of the hype. Win a Super Bowl, set some records–besides worst completion record in NFL history for s starting QB.

  4. Dennis J O'Connor

    Christian bashing? Are you longing for the cross? All I see are a bunch of Christians trying to force other people to live their lives according to a 2,000 year old book that's been edited, revised, and mangled so many times by so many authors that it's incoherent. Go to church. Have fun. Just leave your religion out of my government.

    AddIt's amazing that a man like Tim Tebow could emanate from the disgusting and degenerate society America has become today in the year of our Lord 2012. What Tim Tebow represents is the last remnant of what America at one time was and represented to the world, and what the Communists that are in control of America today despise. If you want to easily find out who is the enemy of America and our traditional values, values America is founded upon, look for the Tebow bashers and mockers. LONG LIVE THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC FOUNDED ON "GOD" GIVEN RIGHTS AS ENUMERATED IN THE "BILL OF RIGHTS".

    I don't know who you are Dennis but I can assure the Bible is the same today as it was in the past. The problem is everyone wants christians to give up their values and accept theirs or we are in the wrong. Seriously if you want to live a life of sin, or be gay or be drunk or do drugs go for it. Just don't expect me to have to accept it. Just as you have the right to choose so do I. If you don't want to have anything to do with GOD and goverment I guess you can quit spending the almighty dollar since all of our money says" in God we trust"

  7. Dennis J O'Connor

    Traditional values like slavery? Traditional values like child labor? Traditional values like Jim Crow, racism, sexism, uber-nationalism? I think you need to find a portal back to 1950 or maybe read a history book instead of masturbating to the flag there, Adolph.

  8. Edward Allen

    You're scum, trash like you are the problem w/ Western Civilization and our societies in America and else where around the world. Since you bring up Jim Crow, one must ask themselves; was American society, before forced integrration, a more honorable and safer place to live than the cesspool of black panther thugs, drug dealers, pimps and gang bangers that on a daily basis terrorize our society today. The answer, like God given rights is self evident.

    Did you know that King James, of the King James Bible, was gay? It is an historical fact. And none of my money says "In God We Trust" as I use a debit card. Your financial habits are as antiquated as your spiritual habits seem to be. Sin is also an antiquated concept, like good and evil. It superstition, like burning witches, stoning adulterers, Crusades, Spanish Inquisitions, and Popes with pointy hats. Oh yes–and the hell you try to use to terrify children into believing your stories about invisible beings who have sex with humans so they can have a child that they can kill, but that doesn't really die, for sins they supposedly will commit 2,000 years later, but that can be forgiven if they just chant a few magic words and submit to this megalomaniacal messiah who has yet to prove that he exists–except to cause natural disasters that kill millions, or cause parents distracted by their cell phones to run over their own kid in their driveway. But just keep smiling and believing with that glazed over look on your face. It's a wonderful world your fantasizing about. Whatever you're on, there ain't a drug to compare.

  10. Tammi M. Love

    That heaven I am fantasizing about is going to be a whole lot nicer than the hell you will be going too. When you are there just remember this conversation and your smug self is going to think I wish I could change it all back. I wish I would have had my sins forgiven and accepted Jesus as my lord and savior.I won't waste time arguing with you but hope that somehow someway you see the truth before its too late. Its not about winning a argument with you its about saving your soul. By the way I do use a debit card too. Woohoo!

  11. Edward Allen

    King James was not a degenerate Homosexual, you are one sick demented freak, and a liar. I think you are possessed by some evil spirits and need to pray to God to save your soul, but most likely you're an Edomite and can't be saved. "Jacob I loved Esau I hate". God hates all of you Edomites and is why Jesus called your people "of your father the devil… liars and murderers". John 8:44 (KJV)
    p.s. King James wrote about you and your people in his book entitled "Demonology".

  12. Dennis J O'Connor

    You sound like a wonderful, forgiving Christian. And I'm "scum?" I was absolutely correct in calling you Adolph. Please explain to me why the United States Constitution makes no mention of "God" except to place a wall between religion and government–a wall your religious brethren are constantly trying to breach. God is a man-made, superstition-based belief system that reflects the childish, non-critical non-thinking thought process people like you suffer from. Time to extract your mind from the Medieval Ages and come into the new world.

    I would recommend 3 DVD by Lee Strobles a once renounced atheist of 1980 they are called Case for Creator, Case for Faith, Case for Christ. Many of the people he interviewed were not even Christians for whom he got evidence from. His wife became a Christian and it drove him nuts he was a journalist so he started out to disprove Christianity and now is one of the most evangelists ministers out there. Examine the evidence its not blind Faith. Even Darwin struggled with his atheist views because of the Cambrian Explosion which no scientist can explain except to say its all there the evidence of full grown life form existing in what they call a milliseconds of thousand years. Believe one day! Because God said and it was so!

    Dennis J O'Connor. This is the fate that awaits you better make sure your right.
    Luke 16:19-31 NLT
    Jesus said, “There was a certain rich man who was splendidly clothed in purple and fine linen and who lived each day in luxury. At his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus who was covered with sores. As Lazarus lay there longing for scraps from the rich man’s table, the dogs would come and lick his open sores.
    “Finally, the poor man died and was carried by the angels to be with Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried, and his soul went to the place of the dead. There, in torment, he saw Abraham in the far distance with Lazarus at his side.
    “The rich man shouted, ‘Father Abraham, have some pity! Send Lazarus over here to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue. I am in anguish in these flames.’
    “But Abraham said to him, ‘Son, remember that during your lifetime you had everything you wanted, and Lazarus had nothing. So now he is here being comforted, and you are in anguish. And besides, there is a great chasm separating us. No one can cross over to you from here, and no one can cross over to us from there.’
    “Then the rich man said, ‘Please, Father Abraham, at least send him to my father’s home. For I have five brothers, and I want him to warn them so they don’t end up in this place of torment.’
    “But Abraham said, ‘Moses and the prophets have warned them. Your brothers can read what they wrote.’
    “The rich man replied, ‘No, Father Abraham! But if someone is sent to them from the dead, then they will repent of their sins and turn to God.’
    “But Abraham said, ‘If they won’t listen to Moses and the prophets, they won’t listen even if someone rises from the dead.’”

    The first amendment is to keep scum like you from telling us; "We the People", that we must come into your Godless New World Order. Also stupid, if you read the Constitution you would see where my forefathers put God into the Constitution, showing to the world that America is founded on Christianity.

  16. Edward Allen

    If you read the United States Constitution in full, you would see where God is mentioned. People like you are not American and shouldn't be allowed to live here. You need to get out of America, a country founded on Christian beliefs and go live in a godless society like China or N. Korea where you'd fit in perfectly, but for damned sure you don't belong in America. I repeat, YOU ARE SCUM!!!!
