That one of them is Tim Tebow, who release from the Patriots is an act of religious persecution is a claim that I find ludicrous in the extreme.
Yet, over at The Blaze, there is a sizable crowd that seems to think just that.
Some example posts:
Shame on NFL Owners and Coach’s for caving under the pressure brought on by the Satanic liberals that have taken over ESPN and the other Sport Media outlets.
Teabow is a winner a will have his day to shine.
It must have been pretty hard last week for all of the haters of God in the media that had to justify the luck in their eyes that Teabow had with two touchdown passes.
God has made it evident to Tim, and myself that he is most definitely using Tim through football. If you can’t see that, then you haven’t been paying attention. Would we even be talking about Tim if he played like everyone else, or played perfect most of the time? The answer is a resounding, no. The Lord works in mysterious ways, and we have been blessed to witness the holy spirit working through Tim. I have no doubt that he will have success as an NFL QB. I don’t know how that will work out, but it will.
Those who are unable to attain any sort of self love, or a connection with their creator, can only envy and ridicule anyone who by example does just that. The Tebo’s of the world can survive being stoned,
while those casting those stones can only suffer in their misery !
This world hates true Christians & it will get worse. I can only hope to have the grace, courage & faith
displayed by Tim Tebow. He’s on my prayerlist. I could not imagine a finer young man. – A Great Cloud of Witnesses-.Heaven is clapping & cheering him on, as one of his biggest fans (and not referring to football)
I think he was cut because the NFL owners are trying to remove the Christian stigma from football. Tebow is arguably the most “Christian” of all the players.
Truth of it is, the NFL does not want a player that makes the rest of the degenerate drug dealers and murderers within its ranks look terrible.
I think that pressure was put on Tim on account of his beliefs as a Christian. Some of you will disagree and that’s fine. However you must admit that being Christian is not “cool.” If however Tim were a a Muslim or an Atheist and if he impugned God things would be much different for Tim. Wasn’t his mother told to abort him when she was pregnant? Who knows this could be a factor also. Right now I think that Tim will never play in the NFL, because the owners are very much afraid of the consequences they might suffer on account of Tim’s beliefs. All this is such a shame.
Let's get real. They released him because they didn't have room on the roster for him, and he has major accuracy issues.
