In every televised football game there are literally hundreds of screen shots and instant replays. Maybe three or four show Tebow outwardly expressing his faith and of course during interviews he will always thank God for giving him his abilities. It's what Christian athletes do. It's not like any football fan would be deluged with Tebow's few personal displays during a game.Vilepagan wrote:
But it is on display, and that's not an accident. If he's going to display his religion for all to see he's got to expect people to react to it and those reactions will vary. Reading the entire article it's clear that some of his teammates and fellow players have spoken out about it and he's been mocked on the field for it.
You know I'm not a Christian, but if I was I don't think I'd go in for that sort of public display. I don't really understand the guys that run into the end zone and drop to one knee, maybe point at the sky...do they really think God cares about the football game....and what about the guy on the other team praying just as hard?
If you want the freedom to proclaim your religion publicly, others must have the freedom to publicly denounce your religion.
First off I don't believe you watch football. Secondly, if you watched the Broncos or Sports Center you've allowed yourself to get caught up in the media's attraction to Tim Tebow and the cross in carries on his back. Fox carries a lot of Tebow, and I know you watch the programs so no complaining. So you're not a Christian. It appears you are more interested in exercising your freedom of speech rather than honoring other's freedom to worship.
No need for a lengthy reply... you've already expressed yourself completely.
