“You will be hated by everyone because of me….” (Matthew 10:22)
Tim Tebow is the Denver Broncos quarterback who’s having an amazing winning streak.
Adept at both rushing and passing the football, Tebow is a dual threat quarterback. The Broncos was 1-4 before Tebow began playing regularly, but immediately began winning with him on the field, often by coming from behind late in the 4th quarter or overtime. This year, Tebow is sporting a critic-defying 7-1 record, and becoming the NFL’s most talked about player in the process.
The youngest son of Baptist missionaries who homeschooled their five children, Tebow is a devout pro-life Christian who openly prays on the football field.
For that, he has incurred the wrath of the God-hating Left who call him all manner of ill names, including “annoying,” “disturbing,” “a douche,” and “the anti-Christ” — which is hilarious because the Left don’t believe in Jesus the Christ.
But the latest reaction from the Left is just sick.
A blogger with a popular pro-abortion blog is urging readers to “support” Tebow by donating $10 to a pro-abortion group every time he scores a touchdown this Sunday against the New England Patriots.
Patrick B. Craine reports for LifeSiteNews, Dec 14, 2011, that “Sophia” of the Abortion Gang blog is urging supporters of abortion to donate $5 or $10 “to your local pro-choice organization…for every touchdown Tebow throws next week.”
“I figure this is indeed the best way to enjoy football, support Tim Tebow (more touchdowns, mannn!!!), and give, give, give to pro-choice organizations earning little to no glory, yet desperately in need of funds.
This is the same man that used the Super Bowl to a) build his reputation and brand as the saintliest saint of an athlete that ever lived, and b) raise money for an anti-choice organization that would deny the right to abortion to millions of women that need it. Yuck.
If you’re a sports fan that also thinks women should be able to do what they want, when they want, and how they want it with their uteri, you can join in this too.”
Despite receiving criticism for his Christian and pro-life beliefs, which has only increased since he took over as starting quarterback with the Broncos this fall, Tebow has remained unapologetic for his outspokenness.
In a radio interview last month, former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer had complained that the overtly Christian football sensation should tone it down. But in response Tebow told ESPN that he wasn’t about to back off his faith:
“That’s how it works because Christ comes first in my life, and then my family, and then my teammates. I respect Jake’s opinion, and I really appreciate his compliment of calling me a winner. But I feel like anytime I get the opportunity to give the Lord some praise, he is due for it.”
I suggest we counter Sophia’s sophistry by donating to a pro-life group each time Tebow scores a touchdown. To donate to LifeSiteNews, click here!
