Skip to comments.Tebow to attend national prayer breakfast (-0 will be there .. tell it, Tim!)
Posted on 02/03/2010 6:59:54 PM PST by STARWISE
Tim Tebow the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback who will appear in a pro-life ad during the Super Bowl will attend the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, his agent tells POLITICO.
Asked if Tebow will speak at the breakfast, his agent, Susan Vanderlinde, said, Yes, I believe he is.
President Obama and several lawmakers plan to attend the breakfast.
Tebow, who just finished his last football season at the University of Florida, has crossed over from sports to politics and religion: He will appear in an ad paid for by the conservative Christian group, Focus on the Family, during the Super Bowl.
In the ad, Tebow is expected to tell the story about how his mother refused to have an abortion, even after doctors urged her to do so when she became sick following a mission trip to the Philippines.
Tebow who won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and led his team to two BCS championships has been known to write biblical passages in his eye paint before games.
"Tebow, who just finished his last football season at the University of Florida, has crossed over from sports to politics and religion"
Hey, Mullins and Parnes: get a grip !!! Can't you just see the green fire emitting from their flared nostrils ?? LOL ... lunatic libs.
Zero attending a prayer breakfast? Is he expecting the attendees to pray to him?!
No. he's going to get them on their knees and show them how to aim their butts at the western horizon.
I am teary-eyed reading this.
God Bless Tim Tebow, his family and pro-life people everywhere!
Just received this today.
If you don’t like Tebow....you will after you look at this...
Make sure you watch the video at the bottom of the article.
Awesome....we haven’t seen this kind of courage in the world
of sports in a VERY long time. I think when Pat Tillman gave
up his career to go to Iraq to give his life for his country
was the last time I can remember!
God bless these heroes!
STARWISE: Thanks for the Post
That was wonderful. Thank you posting that link. I just love missionary kids!
Thank you for reminding me of our patriot, Pat Tillman. We were surely blessed by him and I think we’re blessed again by Tim Tebow. I pray that Tim, by example, will lead others to also speak out for life.
On Obama attending prayer breakfast....The Obama`s released their taxes, they do not give a single penny to a single Christian charity.
Obama supports abortion, he wants prayer out of schools, any mention of God/Christ out of the public square, he drinks, he smokes, he makes fun of the handicapped, he bears false witness every day on countless people, he does not attend a Christian Church other than the odd trip to Camp David.
And as I stated earlier, has no desire for the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ to be spread at all, as he does not give a dime to a single Christian charity.
So ya, here is a guy that needs to get to a prayer breakfast and fast. What a phony bologny he is.
So GOOD to know you’re here.
Miss talking with ya.
“they do not give a single penny to a single Christian charity”.
Do you really expect a Muzzie to donate to Christian Charities; or for that matter anything Christian?
God I’m so tired of hearing this.
There are plenty of other threads.
Maybe I had a ‘feeling’ you were here.
Happy, happy, to see you, regardless!!!
I know I know, he’s a good guy. Its just ad nauseum.
Yes, he’s a GOOD guy and the prayer breakfast *is* tomorrow, so it’s news.
I also pray that Tim can be a positive influence for pro-life
for young and old. He is in the perfect place at the right
time to do this, and I think he will do his part to help
save the lives of unborn babies....like his mom did!
I share your sweet sentiment and prayer.
I hope he finds a wonderful, Christian girl to marry and that they raise a nice large family.
I am calling him out! He says he is a Christian, I challenge!!!
We are in agreement
Of course, he’s phony, but in the eyes of his supporters, he is the best! Just ask the children of Ronald Reagan, William F. Buckley, Jr., and Richard Nixon.
LOL. I am beginning to think so...
It was uncanny for the timing (and the thought).
“By their fruits, you will know them.”
I wonder if this bothers the American people, and I wonder how many of them have given nothing to Christian charities too?
i wonder if Sebelius (sp?) is attending?
I hope he is happy...and I am sure there will be lots of
women who will treasure a man of integrity like this one!
God blessed his parents and himself!
The look on Bummer’s face is going to be priceless.
That does seem AWFULLY odd for a fellow who went out of his way to profess an evangelical witness. You’d think you’d see a bit to the Salvation Army or sumfin. Or what Jimmy Carter does with Housing for Humanity.
Can’t be that tired if you managed
to type that post when you could’ve
just bypassed it, right ? ;)
My pleasure ... what a wonderful family.
God bless them and their compassionate
Yeah, I get it. You can tell by my screen name who my team is. But by living in a college town in Florida, Tebows name was regurgitated so often I just want him to go to the NFL and play ball. If you’ve watched a Florida game the last two years, he is all the announcers spoke about. Tebow this, Tebow that....
He’s not the only athlete with some decency. He is one of many.
Personally I hope that Tim Tebow ignores 0bozo the commie pig altogether. Or way better yet, I would love to see Tim fix his gaze on 0bozo the commie pig, and then say in a loud clear voice “I am praying for your salvation and that you would repent & turn away from your evil deeds to destroy our nation under God”. Ohhhhhh would I love to have ANYWAY with the balls & courage to do that!!! The top of 0bozo’s head would explode with rage!!!
That was outstanding and a tear jerker to be sure. It is going out to some rabil lefties tomorrow!!!
It still amazes us how vicious pro-abortion advocates can be, especially when they dont get their way, or sense that their cause is being threatened in a serious way.
For all their talk about respect of mothers, of choice, and of differences of opinions, none of those things apply to actual pro-life people. Or in this case, the mother of Tim Tebow.
Here is just one example. Its important for us to read this and realize the level of anger we are facing. This from Tommy Craggs at DeadSpin:
"Im guessing the Tebows ad, for spanky Jim Dobsons Focus on the Family, will extol the glories of family and motherhood and the value of children and other seemingly innocuous fare; it will also be 30 seconds of anti-abortion dog-whistling to the Christian right on a frequency somewhere beyond the range of only CBS executives. The moral, implicit or otherwise, will be: dont terminate your pregnancy; that blastocyst might turn into Tim Tebow.
"... But the Tebows message should be called for what it is, and what it is is outright quackery that doesnt differ appreciably from my going on television with a toy stethoscope and urging America to start treating itself with leeches."
Breathtaking, isnt it?
And this sort of vitriol is not even limited to individuals. As Matt Archibold points out, the Center for Reproductive Rights, in a letter to CBS, is flat-out claiming Tebows mom is a liar!
The wider audience however those who are not passionately pro-life or pro-abortion are seeing both sides of this issue for who they are, and thats always a good thing for pro-lifers.
Here at CatholicVote, we believe in supporting Tim Tebow, the brave choice of his mother, and the smart decision made by the CBS executives.
Please click here to tell CBS you support their decision to air the Tim Tebow Commercial (and tell your friends, too!)
Brian Burch and Thomas Peters,
P.S. The fact that we are talking about a successful pro-life ad airing during the Super Bowl speaks volumes about our movement. We are growing more confident and more effective every day. Anyone involved in efforts to affirm the dignity of human life should feel proud next Sunday when this ad is broadcast to hundreds of millions around the world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*** Prayer Breakfast Hosts Pres. Obama, Members of Congress
Pres. Obama will be joined by Spanish Prime Minister Jose-Luis Zapatero as a keynote speaker for the 58th annual National Prayer Breakfast.
Hosted by members of Congress and sponsored by the Fellowship Foundation, a non-governmental Christian group, the breakfast is also attended by foreign leaders, local government officials and invited guests.
watch Nat’l Prayer Breakfast on C-SPAN2 at 8am ET
I sure do like Tim. Perhaps he can change the heart of ole what’s his name...
Ya gotta wonder how these creatures of this current administration have completely sold their souls?
Maybe that's where they should be after all.
Where is it going to be held?
United Negro College fund was the only thing mentioned at the time. UNCF is not a bad fund, I`m just saying why nothing to World Vision etc, or a Christian org that shares the Gospel in some way.
Answer...because he is a phony!
It’s on LIVE now on C-SPAN.
Admiral Mullen speaking now.
He acknowledges Obama, Michelle, Biden and Hillary by name.
Tim Tebow is seated next to Mullen.
Thanks! Listening to it now. I saw your reply at 8:30. Hope I didn’t miss Tebow. Surprised to see the -O there.
UGH. Hillary is the keynote speaker...
I must have missed Tim Tebow’s speech and prayer. :(
I think we might have missed hearing Tim.
I think we might have missed hearing Tim.
I was watching C-SPAN for a good 15 minutes before I came to the computer. I saw Johnny Isackson, the senator from Georgia, Orin Hatch, the Spanish president and one other before Mullen and the lovely singer.
I so wanted to hear and see Tim Tebow.
