Is there a place in the NFL for Tim Tebow? This is a question that will be asked too often this off-season in which the New York Jets look to find someone interested in a trade for the quarterback or, if unsuccessful, he will probably be cut. For now he remains a NY Jet and now it seems he's found another job at the controversial anti-gay megachurch, First Baptist Dallas. On Feb. 14, the Huffington Post revealed that according to the church's website, Tim Tebow will be a special guest speaker at the anti-gay church on Sunday, April 28, 2013, 9:15 AM - 10:25 AM.
First Baptist Dallas is led by pastor Robert Jeffress, who is a controversial evangelical Christian who has caused quite a stir by referring to other religions as “heretical.” He also stated that if President Obama was re-elected, it would lead to the “rise of the anti-Christ.”
Some may think that Tim Tebow's decision to speak at the anti-gay church stands in stark contrast to his beliefs. According to a report from ThinkProgress, after a speech where he endorsed Rick Perry in 2011, Jeffress told media sources that gays should not be allowed in the millitary because "70 percent of the gay population” has AIDS and that he believes “Mormonism is a cult.”
He has also stated his opinion that gay activists are trying to hide "the link between homosexuality and pedophilia."
