Is Tim Tebow Gay?

Postby DarthMonk » Tue Feb 19, 2013 7:03 pm

I was investigating the whole deal about him being invited to give an Easter sermon and ran into this. Funny what you find when surfin' the net.

Excerpt from the writer:

When I was in my late teens and early 20s, I was a devout Christian. I went to church every Sunday, read the Bible, and prayed every night. Every single night. I swore, like Tebow, that I wouldn’t have sex until I married. My first long-term girlfriend was even more hardcore Christian than I was. It was easy hiding my sexual orientation behind my religion. God said I can’t have sex, so I can’t have sex.

It’s not a gay thing, it’s a God thing.

It wasn’t until I was 21 that I had sexual contact with anyone else; It wasn’t until I was 22 that I’d try to “stumble” into bathrooms on campus where it was rumored gay sex occurred.

Tebow, like myself 20 years ago, has said he’s committed to no sex until he’s married. Outsports reader John Armstrong reflected on Tebow’s commitment to chastity:

"You are aware that Tim Tebow is a flaming homosexual, right? Hmmm…I hate myself for being gay and a fundie, so what can I do? I know; I’ll super-achieve in a sport where I can be around men. How can I be very attractive and successful and still be a virgin and nobody scratches heads? I know; I’ll flaunt my religion.

Tim Tebow has one purpose on earth: To reconcile homosexuality and religion. When he comes out, the world changes."

I don't think Tebow is gay. Others can opine what they will......I just don't think he is gay nor is he hiding behind his religion.

My question is--who cares?

What Tebow does with his spare time is his business. Whether it's fellowshipping for the Lord, or watching Mark Sanchez's butt fumble, it doesn't matter.

I agree with your second paragraph. As for the first, if he ever comes out, you'll find out who cares.

We talk about a lot of stuff that doesn't matter.

PS - I actually thought you might be one of the ones who care since I see a lot of your posts calling people gay.

... or, it could be that he is committed to his beliefs. I don't care if he's gay... but, why give unwarranted credibility to this speculation, which really is... baseless?

Today on his Twitter account Tim Tebow wrote:“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, due to new information that has been brought to my attention, I have decided to cancel my upcoming appearance. I will continue to use the platform God has blessed me with to bring Faith, Hope and Love to all those needing a brighter day. Thank you for all of your love and support. God Bless!”

I couldn't care less if he's gay or a devout christian or a virgin or the result of his mother's decision not to have an abortion or if he is or is not a handsome man.

All I want to discuss is how much he sucks at being a quarterback. Because, you see, he really, really does.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

I'm also afraid this will distract from the real issue. :lol:

Yes, but given that, he's still better than Mark Sanchez.

Apparently not.

Tebow is a better qb than me, so he's got that going for him. Except in about 3 months we'll both be making the same amount of money from the nfl. Dirty Sanchez will still be collecting nfl dollars at That time.

Of course he's gay (happy)

I'd be gay too if I was in the NFL getting paid to do nothing.

Calling someone gay for making a less than masculine comment on a message board is not the same as questioning Tim Tebow's real-life sexuality.

For example, I think it's pretty gay that you "investigated" this issue and cared enough to create a thread about it.

I was investigating a sermon he was scheduled to give. People were calling for Goodell to intervene. Tebow has canceled the gig, BTW.

Attempting to move the conversation forward ... Anyone interested may want to see a thread just started by Welch concerning the gayness of a former Redskin. It's actually quite an interesting place society is in right now with the legality of an employer's questioning potential employees on their preferences for boys or girls actually being a hot-button issue in the NFL. If Tebow is, in fact, gay he could possibly bring about major change in the NFL, his church, and even law. I'd think this could be of particular interest to a christian or lawyer with intellectual curiosity not to mention long-time football fans who want to see (or not) the best players on the field regardless.

Who cares. Probably 5-10% of nfl players are gay. So what?
