Tebow Cancels Church
Appearance After Media Firestorm

Fox News, by Todd Starnes

Original Article

Posted By:FelineFine, 2/21/2013 3:02:33 PM

Tim Tebow announced on Twitter that he will no longer appear at First Baptist Church of Dallas after it caused a national uproar among journalists and gay marriage supporters. The announcement blindsided church officials and led some Christian leaders to wonder if Tebow was appeasing those who don’t support the biblical definition of marriage. “While I was looking forward to sharing a message of hope and Christ’s unconditional love with the faithful members of the historic First Baptist Church of Dallas in April,

Comments:
Sure hope it has nothing to do with the church´s position on same sex marriage. That would be disappointment.

I think while Tebow is still in the NFL, these kinds of wars with protestors is not in his best interest. When he retires, and if he becomes more full time in ministry or public appearances, then that´s another thing altogether.

And I´m not fan of Jeffress anyway....I agree with him on most issues, but he´s not politically astute or helpful. He told his congregation to stay home on election day.

Interesting that he lets "journalists and gay marriage supporters" have that much influence on his life.

He should stand up for what he believes in. There are more of "us" than there re of "them."

It appears that Tebow has caved to the Stalinist, totalitarian, full-of-hate gay left, a tiny minority within a tiny minority but nevertheless loud and obnoxious.

Don´t believe the LSM. First Baptist has also said some horrible things against Catholics, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.

The LGBTBBQOMG cabal has seized upon Tebow´s cancellation in a clever PR stunt.

The article says that Tebow explained to Jeffress that because of things going on in his personal and professional life, he "really needed to avoid controversy." It does sound a bit as if he doesn´t have the courage of his convictions.

Leave tebow alone. He had a right to speak wherever. The slime press wouldn´t. Do this to a lib. A Muslim. A Jew. An atheist. Heck no. This is just starting to smell. Enough.....

Don´t know much about this church, but not sure if I believe what was said. He doesn´t need this. he is a football player, practice that. He is not a great speaker. He believes what he says and apparently lives what he beleives, but why deal with this mess?

Spare me. That´s all the further I had to read.

Perhaps "some Christian leaders" need to get a life...

Tebow is trying to save his football career. 2013 is his last shot. Very few teams are willing to offer him a shot. He needs to avoid controversy and try to learn how to throw a football at the NFL level. Next year when he´s playing in Canada he can make these appearances.

#4 has it right. Some very ugly anti semitic commentary by this Church made this an unacceptable venue for Tebow.

This has nothing to do with his football career.

Before you jump all over someone try to get the facts first.

And how do we know it´s because of these particular protestors? Maybe it´s some of the other ugly things the church has put forth put a crimp in Tebow´s plans. Or maybe he just doesn´t want the media attacking the church goers as they certainly will.

He and his family have been braver than most of us ever would. From being staunchly pro-life, to abstinence, they´ve bucked the pop culture establishment in a big way. Anyone saying he doesn´t have courage should try walking in his shoes.

Tebow declined to fight a battle he can´t win.

the gays know that they can easily pressure NFL owners not to hire a "gay-hater" like Tebow. So they saw the opportunity to slam the door on Tim´s career. And it would have worked.

So some time you have to know when to fold ´em. Tim does. Be encouraged by this. He isn´t done yet. And frankly... he is still a kid. Let´s not give him a break. Let´s realize the gays have him in the proverbial trick bag, have the upper hand on Tebow at the moment. Will that last? No way. Tebow will pay them back for this.

Satans minions were furious when Tebow´s devotion was widely accepted by mainstream America... So they are attempting to destroy him. The move to NJ was clearly an effort to take him off the nat´l stage.

Tebow is in the fight of his life against miscreants bent on painting him as fringe. He needs to preserve his ability to influence wide swathes of non-believers.

Pray some team puts God before Satan & restores Tebow to his mission by allowing him back on the nat´l stage.

Vice President Joe Biden has led powerful tributes to the victims and survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing in an emotional ceremony held one year after the tragedy. ´You have become the face of America´s resolve,´ he told 3,000 audience members - including survivors, medical staff, volunteers and families who lost loved ones - at the event on Tuesday. ´You are living proof that America can never ever ever be defeated. You have never ever given up.´ Exactly a year after the bombs killed three and injured 260 more, the crowd gathered at the Hynes Convention Center to pay tribute to the victims and hear speeches from survivors and officials.

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Chick-fil-A is finally crossing the road. The iconic chicken chain, as well-known for its conservative heritage as its savory eats, is recalibrating its moral and culinary compass. It wants to go from old school to almost cool. It wants to evolve from a place where gays once picketed to a place where they´ll feel comfortable going to eat. It wants to broaden the brand as it expands nationally and plows into the Millennial-driven urban arena. Above all: it wants to be a serious player on fast-food´s biggest stage.

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."

A&E declares war on ´Duck

Duck Dynasty has been sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. By now you probably know that A&E indefinitely suspended Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty family, for following the teachings of the Holy Bible. Nothing says tolerance and diversity by silencing the Christians and shoving them in a closet. Between you and me, I think Duck Dynasty ought to indefinitely suspend A&E. Phil ran afoul of intolerant leftwing bullies after making comments about homosexuality to GQ magazine. When the writer asked Phil what he considered to be sinful behavior, he replied:

The gay and lesbian rights group GLAAD is slamming ´Duck Dynasty´ patriarch Phil Robertson for comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine, and challenging the show´s network, A&E, to take action against its most popular star. In a wide-ranging interview, Robertson shared his thoughts on homosexuality and religion. After stating in very graphic terms his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex, Robertson launched into more thoughts about homosexuality and sinning. “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine,” he said.

A source close to the investigation of the shooting death of a 30-year-old man in the parking lot of a New Jersey mall Sunday night says the victim died trying to protect his wife from harm. The New York Daily News reports that Dustin Friedland had just let his wife into the couple´s $80,000 Range Rover and was walking to the driver´s side when he was accosted by the carjackers who demanded his keys. Fearful for his wife´s safety, he resisted and four shots were fired, including one that killed the recently married lawyer.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
