Tim Tebow Anti-Gay Church Speaking Gig Stirs Controversy

by at . Comments

Forget whether or not he can ever be a successful starting quarterback in the NFL.

Tim Tebow is now stirring up debate of a different kind.

Tebow

The signal caller and devout Christian is scheduled to speak at First Baptist Dallas on April 28, a giant establishment in Texas whose pastor - Robert Jeffress - has received a lot of attention for anti-gay and anti-Semitic comments.

In October 2011, Jeffress said Islam and Mormonism are heretical religions "from the pit of hell," and added that "you can't be saved being a Jew."

He also warned his 11,000-member Dallas congregation in November that President Barack Obama's re-election would "lead to the rise of the Antichrist."

The Huffington Post and Think Progess also report that Jeffries doesn't believe gays should serve in the military because "70% of the gay population" has AIDS, while also connection homosexual sex with pedophilia.

Tebow has not made any public comments about the gig, but he is scheduled to speak at Sunday morning worship.

According to I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11 I believe that ALL believers of God’s Holy Word and members of the Churches of Christ are against homosexuality but that does not mean we don’t love those who practice such vile behavior that goes against our religious beliefs of what is holy and un-holy. I see no one protesting Muslims for their beliefs,… is it because liberals are too afraid to “offend” them? Christians have tried to get along for too long and have been bullied out of their beliefs and joined hands with the liberal thereby sanctioning their sin. This is not a true soldier willing to stand up for Christ and point the sinner towards repentance in a loving way. Hell is forever and forever is a long time!! Only the righteous will see God.

Tebow loves the 8====> so this should be interesting.

The puritans of Political Correctness are pushing their intolerance on Christians with demonizing language. Christians believe God's word above man's fallen standard of Political Correctness. Yet Christian love those who disagree.

We need more Tim Tebows in sports and in the world. A finer role model for young and old alike I can't think of. I would be proud to have Tim Tebow come and speak at my church, and I suspect that if he did he would not spreading anything even close to hate speech. Plenty of hate flying around, but I don;t think I have ever seen it come from Tim Tebow's words or actions. The man is to be admired for far more reasons than just football.

F*ggots, really. Who uses that word anymore. How old are you? How is it he is a 'f*ggot if he is speaking at an anti-gay church.

I am very disappointed to see that someone who appears to be a real Christian like Tebow would speak in a church filled with hate toward other religions and groups of people. Jesus taught us to love everyone and be their brother not put them down or teach intolerance because they are different. This will hurt his Christian witness appearing to agree with such unChristian like teaching and beliefs as this church has.

It is interesting how the so called tolerance crowd has no tolerance for those who believe what nature and God's word says about homosexuality. The biggest smear of this age is by those who equate disagreement with hate. It really is a thug tactic to get everyone to fall in line with the czars of Political Correctness. I am against homosexuality and the murder of the unborn, but I do not hate anyone who practices or supports these things.

So you believe everything you read on the internet? Sounds like you are judging people you do not even know. Tell me, what does God say about judging? Perhaps Tebow is going to speak to the congergation about not hating others. Why don't you all let him speak before you run your ignorant mouths off.

Maybe should reserve opinion until they hear what Tim Tebow has to say. I'd bet money his message will be one of love and acceptance, nothing judgmental or negative towards anyone. Tim Tebow is NOT Rev. Jeffrees

Jaybird, how about you cite a single example of Tim Tebow uttering anything even remotely anti-gay or homophobic? You can't, because he hasn't. Tim Tebow keeps it positive because that is who he is. If you think Tim Tebow is going to be bashing anyone when he speaks at any church, you will be very disappointed.

Dude, look...I've had some time to think since I posted what I posted about Tim Tebow on the THG. In terms of what I said about Tim, I hope I'm wrong. But, aside from that, I've always found most sports to be VERY homophobic. Football included.

If u believe the word of God, it clearly speaks that God made woman for mans companion. Bottom line! You can't serve our creator while choosing to believe things your way. You don't have to like it, or live by it, but it's god's natural order. Man and woman's bodies fit together perfectly for a reason.

Lynn, it should be noted that we are ALL sinners. People do not choose to be gay, it's just the way they are wired. God made them this way, and there are no accidents where the creator is concerned. You, as a Christian, do not have to like it, or even understand it, but there are millions of gay christians around the world and I highly doubt God will be turning his back on them come judgment day. Now, to those who would judge and ridicule and hate toward another fellow human being simply because of how and who they choose to love...THAT is another story.
