Skip to comments.Tebow Critics Get "Tebotomy." No Fair Praying?
Posted on 01/08/2012 6:47:34 PM PST by joeclarke
I'm not a big time football fan, even though I played my fair share of football back in the day. What a thrilling end to the Denver - Pittsburgh game when Saint Tebow threw the game winning, overtime pass to the similarly remarkable Demaryius Thomas.
"If you're married, and you have a wife, and you really love your wife, is it good enough to only say to your wife 'I love her' the day you get married? Or should you tell her every single day when you wake up and every opportunity?"And that's how I feel about my relationship with Jesus Christ is that it is the most important thing in my life. So any time I get an opportunity to tell him that I love him or given an opportunity to shout him out on national TV, I'm gonna take that opportunity. And so I look at it as a relationship that I have with him that I want to give him the honor and glory anytime I have the opportunity. And then right after I give him the honor and glory, I always try to give my teammates the honor and glory."And 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." Tim Tebow. Amen, brother!!
yeah well the liberal MSM had no problems when their darling ALI was praising Allah etc in his interviews after wins
Or when he made a big deal about converting and changing his name
I saw Troy and one other player,forehead,chest,shoulder,shoulder during the game.
Sign of the Cross.
I would write more, but I’m on my way out to burn mosques and bash gays.
Is it true that he threw for 316 yards?
Bill Maher, Keith Olbermann, Andrew Sullivan, et al. are not acquainted with anything resembling a decent thought or intention.
If Mrs. Sullivan’s little Andrew can run around being “gay” in public, I don’t see anything hypocritical about Tebow praying in public. Little Andrew’s Muzzie pals do it all of the time. Little Andy doesn’t seem very concerned about that.
Wait for me! lol
Good post with the critic’s quotes, joeclarke. Thanks.
(I haven’t followed the participants in the bashing and do not pay attention to the NFL in general, but...on many levels...there appears to be a greater story here.)
good answer :)
Just what exactly is it that Mr. Tebow is doing that burns their sorry @sses so badly? Could be any worse than what they do on any given Saturday night.
Jake Plummer. Christopher Plummer was in Sound of Music, or some other movie.
The way in which this game ended reminded me of two previous games which began in much the same way.
The first, Superbowl XXII, began with John Elway throwing a TD bomb on the first play. That was pretty much it for the Broncos, as Doug Williams and the Redskins went on to set a bunch of records in annihilating Denver.
The second, Superbowl LVI, began with Chicago Bears superstar Devin Hester returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown. They lost to the Colts 29-17.
Congratulations to the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow. Better to end the game with the Big Play!
The Bible DOES say to pray in private, but it says to make a joyful noise before the Lord, too. I believe Tebow's actions embrace the latter.
Please let all Christians pray for Tebow, as he is ONE professional jock who is a true role model for youth--to say nothing of the rest of the country.
One must bear in mind, when bringing Christianity to bear in public life, that most often losers are winners, and winners are losers. Somewhere in the world today was a woman changing her baby’s diaper, totally unaware of the Pittsburg-Denver game. To the extent she knows Jesus as her Savior, she is every bit as important as Tim Tebow, if not moreso. The good thing is . . . Tebow knows this.
Tim will be burned at the stake for practicing witchcraft by mid-season, next year.
Hate the Bronco, like Tebow, love the Pats. See younext season Timmy....
And the Folsom Street Festival/gay parades/Gay tv/Gay mandates for public school education, etc.
I’m waiting for someone with a name and TV time to rub their noses in it. I may wait eternally...
He looked pretty good throwing the ball today, except for a few plays. I’ve been saying he should improve steadily. You’d think professional coaches could get a kid with all the tools passing pretty well before long.
Absolutely dirty hit by James I don’t care if I hurt anyone Harrison, destroying the knee of Broncos top receiver. James Harrison should be removed from the league. Even high school players know how to tackle/wrap up correctly.
Clearly backward pass, refs missed an obvious fumble...given field position likely a 7 point swing.
Multiple face masks on Tim Tebow never called. Broncos would have a really good chance to win in regulation if called.
I have to admit, this couldn’t have been more perfect, an early commanding lead, followed by a comeback from the Steelers. Tiebow haters were probably talking considerable smack. Then Pow touchdown. I bet Maher sucked his coke spoon up his nose so hard it shot out his butt.
If Tebow was Muslim and got on all 4’s, anyone think the announcers would dare to mock him?
Love that he threw for 316.
LOL - Yeah, that Christopher Plumber guy was in "The Sound of Music". He managed to get into other movies here and there, but nothing anyone ever heard of./s
Most recently he was in a little known film called "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". He has been working continuously since 1953.
The whining pundit class feels more comfortable seeing chest-pounding “LOOK AT ME” antics rather than Tebow’s humble prayer moment.
What Tebow does to these people is force them to think about their own approach to life... it’s making them squirm.
Tebow has plaed some games very well. The MSM hates Tebow or anthing god. They like islam, totalitarianism. I think obama supporters should be sent to gitmo, no food, their salvation direction right in their faces.
It’s customary for Christians to keep visible prayer in private forums, which to argue super pickily, a football game is (you have to get a ticket and go there, or else tune in coverage on TV). The biblical concern is, of course, who is getting the glory — is it you for praying or is it God for being prayed to? The Lord is not interested in the former.
Tebow Time: his favorite Bible verse is John 3:16. He threw for 316 yards in today’s OT win, averaging 31.6 yards per completion. Proof?
Or will all the athiests in the media whine about that, too?
He's praying and giving thanks. Huge foul in their books.
I am a Charger fan, but I am rooting for the Broncos! They appear to be doing something pretty special here.... The focus is all on Tim, but his recievers and that defense are working their butts off too and finding ways to win. (Unlike my Chargers, who seem to go out of their way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory).
If Tebow made Obama a god and prayed to him the LSM wouldn’t be able to kiss up to Tebow fast enough.
Supposedly Wayne Rooney is a staunch catholic, although you’d never know it from his off-field behavior.
Several references to praise, which I do not know chapter and verse offhand, say make a joyful noise unto the Lord; and that praise is a sweet savor to the Lord, that we should witness to others. Also many, many admonitions to give praise unto the Lord.
Yes, Tebow threw for 316 yards? (as in John 3:16)
Also, Rothlesberger threw his INT on 3rd and 16.....hmmm....
oh, and Tebow's average yards per completion were 31.6.....
Proves Jesus is a Bronco's fan. /s
Random events cluster, but this is kewl.
I have to see my Jewish podiatrist every couple of months. He’s an Ohio State grad and has very little in his life beyond Buckeye football. He was treating me a couple of weeks ago, while Tebowmania was just taking hold. While he was wielding his scalpel near my foot, he said, “you know, if I see any more Tebow miracles, I might consider converting.” Except for our intra-Big-10 rivalry, he’s a good friend of mine, and I am seriously considering emailing him to see if he’s still open to converting.
Won't you be seeing Timmy next week?
the SCM/sports cabal just HATE that the people love TT....
Back to Judaism?
“Absolutely dirty hit by James I dont care if I hurt anyone Harrison, destroying the knee of Broncos top receiver.”
I usually feel for injured players, having been hurt a time or two on the field. But if someone criples that scumbag, I won’t feel a thing. No joy, but no sympathy. In fact apathy...
So were we!!! It was a fun game to watch, with a terrific ending!
And we freaking brought back Turner? What’s going on?
Christians should poke pundits in the eyes as often as they wish.
“there were probably many millions of people jumping up and down in their living room, like my husband and I were....”
My wife and two sons, 15 and 7, and myself were high fiving all over the place for about 5 minutes.
...and we’re Ravens fans and it had nothing to do with the Steelers being sent home...well, maybe just a little lol.
The MSM is already converted to islam.
oh... i didn’t know he only had 10 completions.
31.6 avg yards per completion
making the libtards heads spin
“Let every that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.” (Psalm 150:6)
I don't follow football. What does he threw for 316 yards mean? Does that mean that he threw a total of 316 yards in the game?
Folks better get used to it, Robert Griffin III the nice kid that just won the Heisman Trophy does pretty much the same thing. Maybe there is hope for America yet.
