Tim Tebow Cancels Anti-Everything Church Engagement

Tim Tebow While Tim Tebow is struggling to find an NFL team that is willing to sign him, he is apparently having no problem booking speaking gigs as the Jets’ backup quarterback is scheduled to address a Texas megachurch whose pastor is notorious for extremist statements about Roman Catholics, Mormons, Muslims, gays and lesbians and President Obama. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church Dallas gained national attention during his appearance at the Values Voter Summit where he urged Christians to oppose Mitt Romney’s candidacy for the GOP nomination for president because his Mormon faith makes him a member of a “cult” that is “from the pit of Hell.
 Even though Jeffress said that supporting a Mormon would have “eternal consequences” that “outweigh political ones” and lead to God’s judgment, he ended up backing Romney over Obama, whom Jeffress believes is “paving the way for the future reign of the Antichrist.” Besides Muslims, Jeffress labeled Roman Catholics, Hindus, Muslims, and Buddhists as cult followers.
 He has called Islam an “evil, evil religion” and claimed that Muslims, Mormons and Jews are destined to Hell. Jeffress also attacked Roman Catholicism, which he maintains represents “the genius of Satan,” and suggested that Catholics too will go to Hell.   
This incident only shows how desperate Tebow is to be wanted to anyone one that has a microphone and can put him in the winning path again.  In the sport he has chosen with the help of the almighty or not, you have to be a winner in order to be a winner. In other words you got to have it, is not all show and good media shots wether on a knee or on a magazine. The competition is fierce and good press only gets you so far. adamfoxie*
