Reader: Tim Tebow haters can't deal with his Christian faith

Tim Tebow.
Yesterday, our website collected plenty of comments on posts about former Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who's now signed with the New England Patriots. The following take, on an item that spotlighted the Boston Herald's "GOOD GOD!" headline, maintains that Tebow's bad press can be traced to his faithfulness.

Steven M Palmer writes:

Profess Islam as your religion of choice and America will bend over backwards to insure they don't "offend" you. Call Christ your main man and it's your turn in the dunk tank. This is one of the many things wrong with America today.

No. He is discriminated against because he sucks.

He has NOT doen that, the press has just publicized his beliefs.

Funny how Christianity is one of the largest faiths and yet people are so bothered by it. It is freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM it. Everyone has a right to their own beliefs. All Tebow did was kneel and pray.He did not ask for it to be publicized, it was the almighty press that forced the issue and the public didn't like it since many have lost their faith. No one was complaining when he was winning games for the Broncos and took us to the playoffs! Hypocrites!

Robert Cordova

Hes dicriminated against because of his public display of faith... even the bible says to pray behind closed doors that only the hypocrites show a public display.

I don't think he's "discriminated against" it's just a little obnoxious is all. I like the guy, hope he does well with the Cheatriots

"Faithless fucks?" Yeah, only "Christianity" counts to you bigots.

He's not discriminated against at all, he's just not a good football player...unfortunately, his legions of fans think that faith in the lord should be the only requirement for starting in the NFL...

You are so far off point it's not even funny. All you faithless fucks can go fuck yourself. Jealousy is what it is. Shame on all you losers.

The judger may feel a little judged but not discriminated. I support everyone's choices, it's about freedoms. When folks discriminate against others they often run to the wawwwaaaaa it's not fair. Get over Tebow he is a half bake QB and a poor role model for communities with the exception of the haters communities.

This isn't a first amendment issue. This is a Christian theology issue. Tim Tebow violates what Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount: "And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." - Matthew 6:5-6.

Read this somewhere - "Good is the enemy of Great and that is one of the key reasons why we have so little that becomes great" - maybe that's all there is to this! :|

Tim Tebow behaves like the Pharisees Jesus chastised in the Sermon on the Mount. If he were really a Christian, he'd demonstrate Christian humility.

Funny how liberals feel that it is only their interpretation that matters. Manny , YOU are wrong. There is NO protection FROM someone expressing their religion, period. Take that tissue and wipe your own eyes after you pull your head out. While you are at it, try to provide any law that substantiates your false claims.

That's a silly question. Ummm, no. He's just an awful QB.

The media "Us vs Them" spin machine is at it again. Let's keep everyone divided on religion, so they don't wake up to the real corruption taking place elsewhere. Ba Ba Bullshit Sheeples

Kurt Warner was also a heavily publicized Christian NFL quarterback (Superbowl QB if I might add), and caught little to no criticism over his faith, because it was an aspect of his personal life that he simply talked about honestly when questioned; it wasn't a marketing ploy. In most cases, Tim Tebow isn't criticized because he's a Christian. He's criticized because he isn't an NFL-caliber QB. With all of the headlines about a third string QB demanding a press conference, and the constant press about his dating and personal life, he's MUCH more of a D-list celebrity than he ever was a football player.
