Tim Tebow has backed out of a speaking engagement at the First Baptist Church of Dallas after learning of the controversy surrounding Dr. Robert Jeffress, a preacher there who has denounced Jews and homosexuals.

In a Tweet this morning, the terrible quarterback did not mention Jeffress by name, but wrote:

“While I was looking forward to sharing a message of hope and Christ’s unconditional love with the faithful members of the historic First Baptist Church of Dallas in April, due to new information that has been brought to my attention, I have decided to cancel my upcoming appearance.”

The signal caller continued:

“I will continue to use the platform God has blessed me with to bring Faith, Hope and Love to all those needing a brighter day. Thank you for all of your love and support. God Bless!”

Unlike the Jets signing of Tebow prior to last season, this was probably a good move. Don’t you think?
