From my viewpoint

I think that the reason so many people hate Tim Tebow is because of his religion, not anything he's done on the field.

I mean, he's a decent guy, he doesn't play dirty, he doesn't take cheap shots at his opponents (Steelers please take note!), he doesn't get caught with five hookers and a suitcase full of coke, he's not on drugs, legal or otherwise, he doesn't use PEDs, he doesn't get on TV and badmouth anyone, he doesn't take all the credit for a victory, he always points to how the TEAM won the game.......

Oh, and while he might not be the greatest QB to ever play the game, he doesn't turn the ball over much, and his team is WINNING games.  What are the Broncos now since he took over?  6-1?  Yeah.  Leading the AFC West?  Yeah.  So he's not Aaron Rodgers.  So what?  He protects the ball and gives his team a chance to win every single game.  You think the Indianapolis Colts wouldn't like some of that right now?  They'd jump on that chance like a starving dog on a fresh t-bone steak.

So can anyone else tell me why so many people hate Tim Tebow?  Because from where I sit, it's his religion, not his skill set, that is setting so many people off.  He's a reminder of what a decent Christian is, and people can't stand that.

Anybody?  Prove me wrong.

Of course it's his religion. Jesus Christ is the only true God, and the world hates that. So while everyone else kowtows to Islam, Christians are fair game.

My problem with Tebow is the attention that he draws to himself under the guise of glorifying God. Refer to Matthew 6:5 - 6:6. I do think that some others dislike him solely because he is a self proclaimed devout Christian.

I think you've hit it on the head. So many people hate it when a Christian comes along and actually walks the walk, turning tails on all their carefully managed negative stereotypes.

Sadly, it wasn't all that long ago that a lot of people wouldn't have seen a problem with it. Sad that a sports role model like this gets CRITICIZED for embracing Christian values. Thank the 60's and Marxist progressivism for that one, boys and girls.

Yep! Who would you rather want your kid to follow? A decent, stand-up guy who doesn't get in trouble and thanks God for the good in his life, or a thug who constantly gets arrested and flashes his "bling" around while screaming "I'M THE FUCKING MAN, BABY!"
