Tim Tebow To Speak At Anti-Gay Church

Tim Tebow Gets Career Advice In Christopher Dorner's Manifesto

Tim Tebow will be speaking at an anti-gay church later this year.

The popular NFL quarterback, who is known for his devout Christian beliefs, has made several church appearances in the past. His appearance at First Baptist Dallas on April 28 has caused controversy, however, since many believe that the church is “anti-gay” and “anti-semitic.”

According to the Huffington Post, Pastor Robert Jeffress has made several controversial comments. He said that President Obama’s re-election was “paving the way for the future reign of the Antichrist,” he claimed that more than 70% of the gay community has AIDS and also said that Judaism and Mormonism are religions ‘from the pit of Hell.’

According to the Daily Mail, Jeffress said during a sermon in 2012:

“Homosexuality is perverse, it represents a degradation of a person’s mind and if a person will sink that low and there are no restraints from God’s law, then there is no telling to whatever sins he will commit as well.”

Of course, just because Tim Tebow is speaking at an anti-gay church doesn’t mean that the NFL quarterback holds Jeffress’ beliefs. Tebow, who is known for his conservative values, has remained relatively quiet on the subject.

But not all players have been quiet on the gay rights issue. The NFL found itself embroiled in a controversy before the Super Bowl this year when 49ers CB Chris Culliver said that he didn’t want gay players in the locker room.

Do you think Tim Tebow is endorsing Jeffress’ beliefs on homosexuality by speaking at the Dallas megachurch?

    So what? Last I checked there is this thing called the U.S Constitution, first amendment.

    It is his right to do it but no one said he was smart, and you wonder why he can not play the QB position, can not learn the plays, can not read defenses, also there goes his marketing ability.

    Funny the leftest media is in full blown action "anti gay", where was the outrage over the anti American, anti white Rev. Wright? lol such hypocrites.

  6. John Smith

    His presence at that church says that he approves of their "anti" stance. The constitution grants him protection. He has the right to spean and think whatever he wants no matter how stupid and perverse it is. Besides why should we give any credence to an overrated quarterback? It appears that no NFL team wants him. I am sure FOX news has a job for him just like all the other hate mongers they have hired. I believe he has the right to say whatever he wants. The question is: Why would someone who is not in great demand narrow his markets by broadcasting his stupidity?

  7. George Mann

    All Christian churches are anti homosexual as per the teaching from the Holy Bible. The reason for this article is that Mr. Teblow is a well known person and homosexuals use every chance to promote their perverted lifestyle.

    Tebow is not a Catholic, and his father is anti catholic preacher. Get your facts right!

  9. Jimmy Kemp

    Yeah because MSNBC is so much more tolerant, "crackers" is term used regularly there. And for the record, I'm no fan of Fox News, I think the entire media is bias. I prefer the alternative media.

    according to the bible , his public praying makes him a hypocrite. his record makes him a second-rate player.and now, he is a bigot.

  11. Douglas Bigger

    I the catholic church is more perverted by molesting young kids gays do not molest young kids and think its very hypocritical of the catholic t o think otherwise

  12. Rob Wirtz

    Did somebody say they wanted to fine him or throw him in jail? Yeah there is a thing in the U.S. constitution called the 1st amendment, but that is about the government not infringing on our right to free speech. The 1st amendment does nothing to prevent other people from expressing their opinion once you express yours. There is no 1st amendment issue here!

  13. Dale Ohman

    Who's the hate monger here, sounds like you don't like Tim Tebow too much, stick with MSNBC…. no hate mongers there either lol

  14. Jerry Fay

    Tim is pro-family and pro marriage. The liberal media is good at using the term "anti" to spin things: anti-abortion for example is really pro-life. Gay "marriage" is a contradiction of terms; a homosexual marriage cannot be consumated and/or reproduce children. Doesn't anyone stand up for traditional marriage anymore? Doing so does NOT make one a bully or bigot!

    Tim is gay & this is his way to hide that! Nobody is fooled Tim! Be a man and just come out. Why try to hide who you are? It's 2013! You do not have to lie to yourself & everyone else.

    God Bless You Tim Tebow. I am so thankful there are young people that stand up for what is right.

    Doubtful that you have ever read the Bible, and I know for certain that you do not follow it.

  18. Angy Linder

    You call an anti-gay opinion perverse??? That is a little like "the pot calling the kettle black" isn't it? Last time I checked it is the sexual attraction between two individuals of the same sex that is intrinsically perverse. Even beyond that he has the right to say what he wishes, wherever he wishes- the same Constitutional Amendment that gives you the freedom to spout profanities, obscenities and personal judgements is the same one that protects every man's right to voice his opinion- even Tim Tebow.- whether you agree with him or not is not the issue.

  19. Carl Standifer

    Rob Wirtz. Well you have to remember. This is the age of Obama. Being anti gay is a no no..Now if someone would call me anti gay. I say you bet your ass I am. If don't like it. Kiss my ass. Seems in these days. You have to be pro gay…or lesbian. But I would say who says. I will be anti this and that. Even tho I'm half brit/half american. In actuality. I strongly detest gays…period. The Constitution and first amendment doesn't mean squat to Obama. Why he's trying to change this country around..to muslim nation. Thats what Obama is. Muslim.

    Tebow is more anti football the way he plays QB. Guess he knows his football days are over. Now its his time to earn millions gay bashing. I thought the Bible stated we are all Gods Children. I guess not if you put prefer being a bigot over God words.

  23. Sam Spencer

    Does Tebow even have a PR guy? I don't and frankly don't care what his opinion is in the matter of Gay issues, but this "church" doesn't seem to be a good place for him to be making any kind of appearance at.

  24. Lisa Dean

    Anti-gay is not perverse. Gay is perverse. It is very okay to be heterosexual and be left alone because of it. Straight people are in balance with the universe. It is positive/negative. Yin/Yang. The universe is male/female. We don't create chaos and confusion. Straight and Christian does not equal to 'hate-monger'. We have basic human rights. We have a right to our belief system.

  25. Richard Stremmell

    I do not think Teboe necessarily agrees with this church. I think he has every right to express himself anywhere he wants to even though I totally disagree with him. I think T T will go anywhere he can get some publicity as his light is begining to shine less and less.

  26. Charle Arthur Roberts

    you are wrong sin is sin weather you tell a little white lie or you kill a persom and drink their blood, neather is greater than the other as neather will get you into heaven. there is only one sin that the bible says is worse than any sin and that i s the unforgiveable sin of blasphame of the holy spirit! study your bible before you make yourself look like an idiot. as for being gay or bi? god made us all as we are we donsin because we are gay or bi we sin when we act on the urges weather it be in thought or actions.

  27. Terry Bradley

    If one disagrees with the so-called tolerant people they are called names. I do not think perversion is normal or killing babies is anything but murder. I do not hate homosexuals or people who are pro-death. I do wish they would find Christ.

    To the leader of this church and all other anti-gay persons who view homosexuality as a perversion, I have a request. If you are capable of rational thought, I ask you to reflect on what I am going to present as an argument against your position.

    Let me preface my remarks with the information that I am a heterosexual father of three, having been married to the same girl for 42 years. When I was young and relatively immature, I looked down on homosexuals as perversions of nature. It took some thought from my own life experience to realize the error in my thinking. I asked myself this question: At what point in my life did I sit down and decide whether I wanted to be intimate with a man or a woman. It did not take long for me to realize that there was no such moment of decision. As I came into my teen years, I noticed that girls started to appeal to me and I had no choice in the matter. It just happened and I have realized that if the appeal of the opposite sex was not a matter of choice for me, how can I be so presumptuous as to conclude that the appeal of the same sex must be a choice for others. From that point on, my view was completely altered. We have no choice as to which gender we wish to be intimate with. The only choice we get to make is which particular person or persons of that gender we associate with.

    I know all the biblical references about homosexuality but I place them in perspective when I realize that the Bible was written by human beings subject to the same bias and personal agendas of any human being. I don't buy the contention that the biblical authors were divinely inspired for the simple reason that many of the other silly rules that they propounded are not worthy of what they claim is an omnisicient God.

  31. Charle Arthur Roberts

    “Homosexuality is perverse, it represents a degradation of a person’s mind and if a person will sink that low and there are no restraints from God’s law, then there is no telling to whatever sins he will commit as well.”.

    oh just because a person is gay he will commit other sins as well hey guess what we had a presadent oh and you just sined too by judging every gay person saying that statment.

  32. Liz Austin

    An anti-gay church? All churches are or should be anti-gay. If you are a Christian, then homosexuality is against the bible. It states very clearly in the bible that it's wrong. A church and it's followers have the right to believe in what they want. It's called Freedom of Religion. Everyone is always yelling for their rights, well ladies and Gents, Christians have rights too.

  33. John Ramirez

    Maybe he should be on the next list for senate in AZ! Cause when he is not throwing footballs he's not winning super bowls! This will pass since he will be older in ten years where no team wants him. What a disgrace to his young fans!

  34. Albert Goldenberg

    its so funny to me that everyone plays the same game of pretending that a guy is straight until he comes out and says he's gay. and then its like, oh yeah I always knew that! hiding behind the religious mask is one of the easiest tricks of the closet. why is it so easy for Tim to stay a virgin? well, he's not attracted to women of course. but that would be obvious hence the religious mask. come on, a pro football player virgin? if your falling for the chaste straight guy routine its only because you want to. closeted gay men are many times the ones who shout anti-gay opinions the loudest to throw people off the scent, so yes, he will gladly speak at this church because no gay man would, right? get it?

  35. Joseph-lee Morehouse

    God Bless him for for having the balls for saying what he believes in, I don't agree with him but I would fight for his rights to say it. A Gay man who just want his rights protected too.

    Carl Standifer I must strongly agree with you, same sex relationships are an abomination to God. More Christians should speak out against it!!!! Obama and his gay rights and pro-choice are just adding to the moral downfall of this country. What happened to the values our forefathers had when they founded this country, the USA is going to hell in a handbasket!! Good for you Tim Tebow, keep stating your beliefs!
    I know that i will be blasted for these statements but I am Catholic and it isabout time i stop hiding my beliefs just to be polictically correct and not anger those who think this opinion is wrong.

  40. David Manhart

    This is so wrong to accuse Tebow of being anti-gay for speaking in front of this group.. I mean, if he spoke in front of the KKK would that make him anti-black?

  41. Shaky DeVille

    It's tiring reading some of these posts. Tebow has a right to speak anywhere he likes. Why don't we wait and see what he has to say at this church? Our own Presidents' pastor has said some of the most offensive things caught on tape, yet, we don't pour all over that situation. Give it a rest. This planet would be boring as hell if we were all perfect.

  45. Chuck Templeman

    Any Church should be "anti-gay", you idiots, because homosexual sex is a sin. It is no more a sin than per-marital, or extra marital sex, but it is a sin, and any Church not anti-gay, is not even anti-sin, and therefore not a real Church, that is, not sanctified by the real God. I don't care how many people, for how long, try to make that not the truth, it still will be, and I'm tired of trying to be PC about it. From now on I just state the truth, the only truth, and anyone who can't get that, is buying into the lie, and will deserve everything they get.

  46. Amanda Chand

    There is nothing wrong with being anti-gay. More people should stick to their beliefs. If so our children wouldn't be taught homosexual acceptance in schools or anywhere else. I am proud of him for standing up for what he believes and not being afraid to speak because of political correctness.

  47. Milton Willis

    One can choose to believe in the God of the bible or not., one can choose to except his word or for their comfort take and twist what God says in his word to justify their wickedness, but understand this , " nothing you say or do, no arguement or twisting of the truth to justify the wickedness of homosexuality can or will ever change God or his word. Or the fact that when it comes to determining what is good or evil He reigns supreme. So when one argues against or attack someone who calls homosexuality an abomination , it is in truth the word of God thus him who you hate, reject , curse and attack. And someone telling you the truth does not mean that , that person is passing judgement on you , but rather just simply telling you the true in relation to God's word. And in his word God says many times that homosexuality is a abomination in his sight period!

    Yes but using your religion to be anti- gay and anti-semetic is infringing on other people's rights. I've read a lot of these comments and there are a rampant number of bigots running around claiming to be good Christians. Last I heard Christianity is about tolerance and hating the sin but not the sinner. I'm more worried about this "pastor" who is spreading filth and lies.

  54. Ashley Simpson

    Seriously? Why is this in the news? Why would anyone be SURPRISED that he would speak at a church that did not support homosexuality? Besides, I do believe it is his 1st Amendment right to speak whatever he wants, where ever he wants, when ever he wants. I just don't understand why this is even news.

  55. Dee Tension

    It is funny that the pastor said anti mormon, anti gay, anti semitic things and it's framed as "anti gay" The implication being – therefore Tebow is anti gay. Are we also assuming he is anti semitic?

    Hate to bust your bubble, holier-than-thou mouthbreathers, but the Bible got many things wrong. It was written by flawed, ignorant men. If there is a God and we're made by God then I was made gay from birth, and it's the rest of you with the problem. I grew up being told every unmarried adult male was a "fag." I guess that applies to Jesus? Then STFU already! I WILL let you explain Lindsey Graham, Marcus Bachmann, Larry Craig, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Foley, Aaron Shock and Marco Rubio. They are not only self-hating, but spread their hate to marginalize those of us who accept who we are, and THAT"S very un- "Christian."

  58. William Rosamond

    Bethany Amanda O'Neal- If that is really what you believe, I really feel sorry for you. We need a lot more people like Tebow that actually remembers what its like to have values and not have to hide behind a computer to portray them. For all these people on here saying he is gay bashing, that is really unfortunate. The bible is against homosexuality, which is why it says marriage is between a man and a woman. However, as Christians, we do not hate or should never hate a gay perso or anyone.. God hates the act, not the person and yes, sin is sin. The difference is gay people do not believe they are sinning which is the problem. When I am drinking, I know drinking isn't right but I do it anyway. That is what repentance is for, but if I say that getting drunk and smoking and having premarital sex is wrong, that is where the danger lies and that is the real issue behind gay rights. It is true that we are all God's children and he loves all of us, but that doesn't mean homosexuality is okay or acceptable as it is not. It's alot more difficult to stand for what you believe in than to just go with the flow. I like Tebow decide to not just go with the flow and for all of you that do, remember one thing, we all will be held accountable for our actions. I am not perfect nor do i profess to be, but I am also not above God and if the bible speaks to homosexualtiy and says it is wrong, then who am I to say it is right? God Bless you all and I hope we can all treat each other with the respect and dignity each person deserves.

    There seems to be some confusion….

    the homosexual community demands tolerance from anyone who does not agree with them….

    and yet, they give NO tolerance to any group, organization or individuals who does not agree with them.

    It is clear the homosexual community does not want tolerance. They want complete and unconditional approval and if that is in direct contradiction with the Scriptures than the homosexual community DEMANDS that you throw out your Scripture and your beliefs……

    If you don't follow them blindly…then you are labeled as "anti gay"……

    Label away because this Christian will not stray from my beliefs just because the homosexual community has NO TOLERANCE FOR OTHERS!

    I hope Tebow does hold views against homosexuality. Before everyone gets in an uproar about my statement, hear me on this. I am against homosexuality, because I believe God's Word is true, and that God means what he says. Homosexuality is a sin. HOWEVER, the following is where I and some of my Christian contemporaries part ways. I embrace homosexuals. I love them just like anyone else. Was I so different before I came to know Christ? NO. I will not call the lifestyle right or good or healthy. I will call it what it is…sin. I will also call homosexuals what they are…people. People who need Christ just as much as everyone else in this world.

    Homosexuality is a sin just like lying or stealing. All Christian churches are against those things. That doesn't mean they hate gays. They love people that are gay just like they also love people that lie or steal. Us Christians pray that we can overcome our sins and be more like Christ.

    First and foremost he isn't "Catholic." Secondly he, as a fellow Christian, WOULD be against a lifestyle that would condone homosexuality. The book of Leviticus which is contained in the bible, which is the book that Christians hold true and seek to live by, which happens to also be the best selling book of all time, clearly states rebuking homosexuality among other sexual perversions. So many times, non-Christians, as well as Christians, want to tear apart the individual and not recognize the core belief that someone holds true. If you were a Christian you would understand that Mr. Tebow not only disagrees with a homosexual lifestyle, but that his AND my God demand us to. Don't go on a hate tyrant about his football abilities because he is standing up for his beliefs when so many will not. By the way, since you brought it up, how many games did he start and play from beginning to end allowing him to see some real playing experience? Did he get the luxury of starting and staying in the game winning or losing to learn and grow as a true NFL quarterback, or was he just shuffled in and out playing sporadically at best?

  69. Emil H. Michael

    Traditional marriage between a man and a woman like the Bible says? Does traditional marriage include the man paying the woman's father a bride price before marriage? Does traditional marriage include only the man being able to divorce the woman by saying "I divorce you" privately if he finds another woman more attractive than his present wife or if he believes that his present wife sleeps with another person? Does traditional marriage include concubines (King David who is Jesus' ancestor had ten) plus more than one wife? Does traditional marriage include stoning the bride if she is unfaithful. I can find all of these in the Bible especially in Leviticus and Deuteronomy along with the verses against men laying with men adn women with women. Or do traditional marriage proponents just pick and choose which verses of the Bible they want to follow? Forget Tebow and the megachurch. Let's follow the Bible and practice it all.

    Go babe. When you see men being with men as with women and stuff like that the word abomination is usually close by.

  71. Paul Alden

    Why should anyone tolerate someone whose opinion is not only wrong, but destructive? There's a difference between being "tolerated" and accepted. Do you think k.d. lang woke up one day and "chose" to be a lesbian? Honestly? It is a trait from birth- that does not make a gay any more or less immune to crime, bad decisions or being flawed than a heterosexual, but the prejudices all of us have to endure worldwide are totally wrong. We don't have to listen to anyone who doesn't "get" it.

Soiled at the feet of the Holy God of the Universe who created all things. WE LOST THE BATTLE, WE ALL FAILED! Through JESUS, WE have Victory! We can give NOTHING, He gave EVERYTHING! Believing In Christ and not in self is all we can do. If we were to refrain from speaking to individuals who had deficiencys or differences would be a life long term of solitary confinement. To refer to Tebow as a Hatemonger is unfair and insensitive , two current deficienys of some who commented. Examine yourselfs folks before you attempt to examine others. You'd be surprised by what you find.

    Liz, I am so glad you are for Freedom of Religion which you say is "A church and it's followers have the right to believe in what they want." And since you refer to "Christian", that must mean according to the Bible. I'm a Christian. So how about according to the Bible I come to an agreement with your dad (if he is alive) and pay him and take you as a wife, and then I go find other wives? I "have rights too."

    I do lean to the right, but Pastor Robert Jeffress is an extremist. And for that reason, Tim Tebow will give the impression that he is also an extremist by affiliating himself with this specific church. Being a Church-goer with a faith in modern religion (acceptance of all good people), I think Tim is heading down a more slippery slope than he went down last year.

    why would anyone care if two people who loved one another got married . Everyone points a finger .

    Should he find a gay church to speak at. I don't think they would have him. I'm sure someone is sticking their nose into his personal stuff to find where he is and what he's doing to try to defame him because he is openly Christian. I'm sure if he had been seen in a topless place or a bath house we all would hear about it. But that hasn't happened to date so we have to bad mouth him for speaking at a church. Most churches don't even deal with the gay issue not to offend anybody.

    Very similar to the anti black comments of the 60's people. Same hate, same double talk, and ultimately same outcome. Being conservative does not mean you can legally exclude or humiliate. Really, I do not understand why the Dans, Mikes and Tim Tebows of the world have such an issue with the Gay community, it certainly is not Christian to hate…you make no sense and are hypocrites at best.

    Is it right to deny someone black the right to marry or vote? Then it's not right to denounce someone or marginalize them for the way they were born. The Bible got a lot of things wrong, including fear of homosexuality. It is a naturally occuring birthright and untold crime and misery have resulted from "Christians" embracing that mistake while they turn a blind eye to the others in their infallible Bible.

    Hate to bust your bubble, but the Bible got many things wrong. It was written by flawed, ignorant men. If there is a God and we're made by God then I was made gay from birth, and it's the rest of you with the problem. I grew up being told every unmarried adult male was a "fag." I guess that applies to Jesus? Then why is it right to call others that? I WILL let you explain Lindsey Graham, Marcus Bachmann, Larry Craig, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Foley, Aaron Shock and Marco Rubio. They are not only self-hating, but spread their hate to marginalize those of us who accept who we are, and THAT"S very un- "Christian."

    Mike Dwyer Why should anyone tolerate someone whose opinion is not only wrong, but destructive? There's a difference between being "tolerated" and accepted. Do you think k.d. lang woke up one day and "chose" to be a lesbian? Honestly? It is a trait from birth- that does not make a gay any more or less immune to crime, bad decisions or being flawed than a heterosexual, but the prejudices all of us have to endure worldwide are totally wrong. The Bible got a lot of things wrong! So no, we don't have to listen to anyone who doesn't "get" it. I can accept that you don't understand, but I cannot tolerate that you should be able to marginalize my rights because you can't or won't accept scientific fact.

  105. Emil H. Michael

    Unless you know her, your statement about feeling sorry for Bethany sounds patronizing, hollow and unreal. The negative statements about being against homosexuality were and are made about Jews, black people, and other minorities. Your separation of homosexual persons and their sexual actions as sin sounds like some kind of mind game. Using the Bible or Quaran or Book of Mormon to justify hate of whatever/whoever minority person is insulting to and against religion.

  106. Shannon Allen-OShea

    Uhhh, God created a man and woman to be together. Homosexuality is said throughout the Bible to be a sin. So the Church, the followers of God, are going to have the same stance. We are also anti-adultery, anti-stealing, anti-fornication, anti-rape, anti-abortion, anti-greed, anti-hypocrisy, and so on. If it goes against the holy character of God as clearly explained in the Bible then its a sin. He defines what is right and wrong by His character, not what is popular in culture this decade. He is a God of love who hates things that hurts the ones He loves.

    I like how a bunch of unknown, pro-homo, liberal robots get on these comment pages and try to criticize, denigrate, and disprove a religion which has lasted thousands of years and of has billions of followers. What makes these people think that they can reverse a belief system which has existed longer than some of their family trees with just a few short sentences and couple modern derogatory slang terms? Please tell me. If there are any anti christian, liberal robots out there who routinely regurgitate the beliefs programmed into you by your much more intelligent and wealthy human overlords, please, I beseech thee…explain to us all how your hate speech, your talk of christian genocide, and your ridiculous penny ante name calling is going to bring down a religion which is vehemently followed by billions of people? Get over it. The Bible, the Koran, and the Torah all proclaim that homosexuality is WRONG, Perverse, Unholy, and a bunch of other negative terms. The homos make up less than 4% of the population of the USA according to the 2010 census. Your hatred and your bullying will ultimately back fire on you when the sleeping giant is finally awoken.

Why is it a big deal if he speaks at a church that has the same beliefs as him? Why aren't the gay people more tolerant like they are always telling the conservative people to be?

    Sara Woodie-Pacheco I believe there's a difference in Using your religion to be hateful and following your religion. As I stated, the Bible tells us what's wrong and what's right (for Christians). But you are very right about hating the sin that is being committed, not the sinner. The bible actually teaches that we shouldn't hate the sinner, but pray for them and feel sorry for them. I don't hate gays (and of course you, Sara, know that). We're all human beings after all. We're just different. I also think that disrespecting and bashing a religion just because of their beliefs is ridiculous. Why is it not ok for Christians to not like gays, but it's perfectly ok for everyone else to bash and name-call Christians? You, Sara, also know (unlike some other people commenting) that I'm don't deliberately try to offend or hurt anyone. Nor am I a hateful person.

    Tim Tebow is a Bible believing Christian. ALLl Bible believing Christians believe that homosexuality is immoral, perverse and a sin. Why is it wrong for him to speak in a place where other people who believe the same way he does will be. If you all embrace homosexuality that is fine. We, as Christians love homosexuals and know we have all sinned and fall short of His Glory. However, we do not think homosexuals will make it into heaven because it is a sin and an abomination before God. That is what the Bible says and that is what we believe. By the way neither do drunkards, or adulterers.

Homosexuals are sinners and all Christians desire to see them saved because that is what God desires. All would come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and none would perish.

That is not true in the Christian religion, not to say there aren't radicals out there in every, and I mean EVERY walk of life. We don't HATE the Gay person, we disagree with and do not believe in the actual concept of two persons of the same gender being together as lovers. There is a BIG difference.

    I personally find homosexuality distasteful, but I regard this as a limitation on my part. I dislike seeing men kissing, yet in other cultures, present and past, men have done so and not from homosexual inclinations. When the Roman legions were surrounded in Teutoburg forest by Arminius' Germans and knew they were doomed, they fell into each other's arms, kissing and weeping. Do you think these hairy old toughs of the XVII – XIX legions were all gay? If you can believe that, you can believe anything. So I regard my personal reactions to affection between men as a limitation imposed by my culture, which is extremely homophobic. Since I see it this way, I am inclined to be tolerant of homosexuality, so long as it publicly discreet (and that includes public displays of heterosexual love). As for the so-called Holy Bible, which proscribes gay love, if the faithful took the trouble to read that book carefully, they would discover that it prohibits a lot of things they do every day. It is a most unreliable guide to conduct.

    The Bible says a lot of things, and if you investigate it closely, it is full of contradictions. Calling ir a 'Word' hides from this fact. It is a collection of documents written over a thousand years, brought together after many councils and controversies. It is routinely mistranslated to fit the religious beliefs of the customers. Gen.1:1, for instance, is regularly mistranslated, since the word translated 'God,' 'elohim', means the family of gods and goddesses headed by the Syrian god El. It included Yahweh, but also Asherah (originally Yahweh's wife) and Baal. Try studying the Bible as a scholar would instead of using it to weigh down your coffee table.

    If Tebow is truly a Christian, he needs to be subscribing to the beliefs of Jesus Christ not Jeffress….I just want to say this…these people need to read the Bible that they worship…they are worshipping a book not Jesus Christ…Matthew 6: 27-37. According to Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21.."Tebowing" goes against these Christian teachings in the Christian part of the Bible….The New Testament….Tebow needs to learn to read and apply..and the Christian faith came from the Jewish faith…what do these neo-Christian, right wing, gun toting Republicans think Jesus Christ was an evangelical, gun toting, right winger like them? Get real… Christianity didn't truly exist until after the Resurrection….I am so sure Jesus was packing heat when he fed the masses, raised Lazarus from the dead, turned water into wine, etc etc..

    The typical hatred that spews from Christians! They are really good at hating. They've been at it for a long time.

  187. Patricia Murphy Dunn

    It is amazing that this man has been labeled and judged so often. He is not afraid to be a man! Tim Tebow follows the path of his Lord and Savior. He is hated and reviled without just cause. Many of you would probably toast if he were crucified on times square. GOD help you. And… I would bet that if you were in harms way, he would be the first to lay down his life for you -without asking if you were day or liberal or proabortion. I'm not saying he is some super man but the CHRIST who lives in him IS!

  188. Linda Simmons

    If the KKK has the right to hold meeting and spew their beliefs and o one bothers them leave TIm Tebow the hell alone. He has a right to his beliefs and do I and can speak anywhere he da## well please. Is this America or WHAT And another thing how can someone say he is speaking at an ANIT- GAY CHRUCH–ALL CHURCHES/RELIGIONS DO NOT ACCEPT THE HOMO LIFESTYLE AS ACCEPTABLE TO GOD. So I guess they are talking about all churches as being ANIT-GAY. WHO DO THE GAY BULLIES THINK THEY ARE. GOD IS NOT RUBBER STAMPING PERVERSION. AND HE NEVER WILL.

    Is divorce and adultery a part of "traditional" marriage? If it is, I am glad that I don't have the "right" to marry my partner in the state of NC…because Jesus actually speaks to divorce and adultery in the Book of Matthew chapter 6..for slow learners it is even printed in red ink which means these are Jesus' words as remembered by Matthew…as far as procreation..where does that leave childless heterosexual couple who either biologically cannot reproduce or choose not to…live and let live..I pay taxes, contribute positively to society, abide by laws, am a proud American and I am denied freedoms delineated in the Declaration of Independence..life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…I am written out of my state's constitution…REALLY?! A four letter word that should be used much more L-O-V-E.

    Sara Woodie-Pacheco being a Christian IS ABOUT HATING THE SIN AND NOT THE PERSON. BUT WHEN WILL THE GAY COMMUNITY STOP ENGAGING IN THE SIN ??? Jesus can forgive ALL SINS and deliver you. But after you are forgiven JESUS SAYS GO AND SIN NO MORE !!!

    If you believe what the bible teaches this filthy secular world will attack you to justify their evil agendas.
    Homosexuality is a perversion and an abomination. If you are gay, repent and turn away from the devil.

    As a christian I like to point out to all my fellow believers out there that we all have sin in our lives. If you don't believe it read 1 john 1:8 It states: If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. I would say to you ALL SIN IS PERVERSE in GODS eyes. I notice in the christian community we have a tendency to judge some sin on a different level than others. Yes the bible says homosexuallity is wrong, but there a multitude of things we do that are sinful daily and never repent for them. And by the way why is it that so many people are attacking Tim Tebow anyway there is no one commenting on this site that even knows this guy, other than what the media has said about him. He has never said he hated anyone. By what I see he seems to be a nice guy. He may not be a good quarterback , but the NFL needs more good people in it.

  193. Joel Westlake

    Since he will not have a QB job this year, he needs to do something with his time. As a PR standpoint, this is not going to endear him to many prospective teams. Hate lingers on someone for a long time no matter what they say afterwards. If you are a team trying to find someone to fill seats, being labeled as a racist and condoning hatred by speaking at a church that condones it is not going to help his cause. If he is doing this to dispel rumors of it he is gay, there are better ways to do that.

    David Chase , why are WE bigoted and fearful because we disagree with you? Maybe YOU are the ones who are bigoted and fearful because you disagree with us. Disagreeing with another's belief is not bigoted, it is just another belief. It's called tolerance and diversity. However, it must be said that God was the first to Condemn gay practices and He is God and we are not.

    Obama when he was a senator stated he believed in Gay Marriage before he ran for President. He lied when he ran in 2008 and said he was a Christian and was against gay marriage. Now he is for it again. The truth be told OBAMA WAS ALWAYS FOR GAY MARRIAGE AND IS NOT A CHRISTIAN BUT A LIAR. Obama is rumored to have ties to the gay community in CHicago at a bathhouse. The reason we hear so much about GAYS IN JUST ABOUT EVERY SPEECH IS OBAMA I BELIEVE IS OUR FIRST GAY PRESIDENT. AND HE MAY BE IS A MUSLUM which I don't care but HE LIED AND SAID HE WAS CHRISTIAN. HE IS DEFINITELY NOT CHRISTIAN!

    It cracks me up how homosexual orientation gets people so bunged up. Homo haters think that the only thing our lives consist of is a sex act. Being gay is much more than a sex act. It is who we are. It colors our whole life. Do you think I sit around and get all bunged up over your heterosexual relationships, your divorces, your drama, your children who are forever scarred by your divorces, custoday fights, and worse. The Investigation Discovery Channel wouldn't exist if it wasn't for hetero realtionships. Get a life and learn the book you worship. I don't care who you love..male or female…we are all humans. And those of you who proclaim Christianity so vehemently seem to be the most miserable. Go get a life and don't worry about mine. If it is a sin, that is my problem. You tend to your salvation and I'll tend to mine.

    Man, you are scary. In balance with the universe? Really?! How many times do you straights get married, divorced, married, divorced..ad nauseum. Who is bothering you for being straight? I don't remember causing any chaos or confusion…no wait I know people like you…Gays caused 9/11, tsunamis, earthquakes…wow we are great muti-taskers…you give us way too much control over things including yourself..your hatred controls you…I on the other hand don't give a fig if you are straight…as a far as rights…you have them all…basic and advanced…the world is made for you…so go enjoy your belief system and I'll enjoy mine which includes such ancient ideas as integrity, love, loyalty, respect, honor, duty, hard work…going to enjoy my belief system right now…I'm taking my gay self to church :)

    There isn't any Anti Gay Churches. There are simply Churches that quote from the Bible, Man was made to propagate with a Woman, that's one reason God made Adam and Eve and not Adam and Tom. Stop the hate, I do not hate the homo sexual just do not condom their Life Style.

    Where is the bible does it say God is against homosexuals? I don't care what anyone has to say, that is their right. Just like a gay person has the same rights to marry and be treated with respect and be judged as a person. It should be none of anyone business who marries who. Be good to each other and make the world a better place for all of us.

    Good for Tebow. All of this idiotic and destructive political correctness will destroy this country. Whatever happened to freedom of speech? Khrushchev said that we would be destroyed from within. Apparently, he was referring to all these politically correct morons.

    Funny how it is politically incorrect to be anti-gay but is politically correct to be anti-heterosexual. Anytime someone states that are not gay the media makes them anti-gay.

    Way to go, Johnny Trujilo, I haven't seen too many of these "Christians" write anything about grace, redemption, absolution which is all over the Bible…they are brainwashed into listening to preachers instead of studying the book they thump and think for themselves. My own first cousin porn-watching, adulterer, Bible thumping Baptist that he is has never broke the spine on the Bible our grandmother gave us 35 years ago and he HATES my lesbian guts…all this "love the sinner; hate the sin" is BS…He HATES me…me personally…I love him as a cousin but I HATE what he does. Who is the bigger sinner?…not for me to judege…"love the sinner:hate the sin" is just opium for the masses…a quick catch phrase that these people can whip our like a switch blade.

    jews are killing palestinians for no reason, and marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman, and barack obama means lightening from heaven in hebrew, so yes judaism is evil, homosexuality is an abomination, and obama either is the anti-christ, or he's an agent for the anti-christ.
