Tim Tebow Can't Talk About Same-Sex Marriage

Tebow

As Sally Quinn (who fawns over the Focus on the Family-supporting Denver Broncos player like a smitten teenager) notes in this WaPo profile, his publicist won't let him answer a question about same-sex marriage:

There is something very beguiling about Tebow. He seems almost an unmolded adolescent who is just beginning to think for himself, examine his life, and ask questions. He is open and friendly with a good sense of humor. It’s hard to imagine such innocence in someone his age and in his field, but talking to him, it’s hard to believe it isn’t genuine. When asked questions he clearly has not been asked before, he ponders and tries to respond as openly and honestly as he can. Only once, when asked about same-sex marriage, did his publicist, on the other end of the phone, protectively jump in to object that that was off message.

The article positions Tebow as a good Christian role model. But as one commenter on the WaPo love letter notes, "Until Tim Tebow distances himself from the hatred aimed at millions of Americans (including quite a few gay teens that end up killing themselves), he has no credibility as a role model."

  1. The Christian attitude to equal rights for all, is what turned me away from it. I cannot in conscience be a member of a group which borders on disseminating hate. Whatever happened to Jesus' dictum, Do unto others? Would any evangelical want to have their right (God-given and Constitutionall decreed, since we are "One nation UNDER GOD.I used to wear my Xtian faith proudly. Now I am unable.

  3. I agree that Tim seems a little naive/"unmolded adolescent"/emotionally and socially retarded, however I think we need a little more of that in the world. I'm familliar with some of his non-football background and it seems like he really has a genuine desire to help young people with problems and that is admirable.

    It is unfortunate that he's been told repeatedly about how homosexuality is negative and that he's gotten entwined with hate groups like FoF. I hope that at some point some nice dude's pillow talk will involve ways he can help all young people regardless of sexual orientation in an open and non-jdgemental way.

    He has the kind of anne frank positivity that could do a lot of good if he coul intermingle with people that are truly trying to do some good and not divisive hate groups like FoF.

    Oh yeah and I want that sexy bear to be the father of our children we will adopt from war-torn countrues. That is all :b

  4. Tim Tebow is amazing. I love him. Homosexuality is a sin. It doesn't make you a bad person, but it is a sin.
