Tim Tebow will head to an anti-gay church on April 28 to give a speech. On Feb. 14, Huffington Post reported that Tebow will speak at the First Baptist Dallas church -- and this is causing some discussion. The New York Jets backup quarterback is causing some controversy with his decision to speak at the church, many wondering if Tebow agrees with the beliefs of the the 11,000 church members.
Senior pastor Robert Jeffress is known for criticizing other religious beliefs and voicing his opinions on different controversial issues. Tebow, known for being very religious, chooses not to discuss controversial issues publicly.
Tim Tebow's anti-gay church visit is stirring the pot a bit because many people are wondering if he shares the same beliefs as pastor Jeffress -- and some believe that he must or he wouldn't have been invited to speak.
"There are a disproportionate amount of assaults against children by homosexuals than by heterosexuals, you can’t deny that, and the reason is very clear: homosexuality is perverse, it represents a degradation of a person’s mind and if a person will sink that low and there are no restraints from God’s law, then there is no telling to whatever sins he will commit as well," Jeffress reportedly said.
Do you think Tim Tebow's anti-gay church visit suggests he himself is anti-gay? Does your opinion of him change after learning that he's agreed to give a speech here?
