Comedian John Oliver spouted "I hate Tim Tebow" in one of his performances. He explained thatif he had Bin Laden and Tim Tebow in the same room and he had a gun with two bullets, he wouldshoot Tebow first. Bill Maher refers to Tebow as a douche bag. Facebook and Twitter areoverloaded with Tebow haters. It doesn't take a trained psychologist to understand why they arehating on Tebow. In January of 2005 the Vikings were playing the Packers at Lambeau Field. Randy Moss caught atouchdown pass and then proceeded to entertain millions of fans by simulating the act of mooningin the end zone. The commentators seemed to react differently. Chris Collinsworth tried to muffle agiggle while Joe Buck expressed his outrage, "That's a disgusting act by Randy Moss and itsunfortunate we had it on our air live." In contrast, Tim Tebow takes one knee and prays to his God.Guess which act stirs outrage around the water cooler on Monday morning? Tebow's habit of taking a knee and placing his fist to his forehead has birthed a culturalphenomena called 'Tebowing'. Visit the Tebowing website to discover how 'Tebowing' has becomethe recent rage. They are Tebowing in Haiti, in China and at the Vatican. They are doing it inAfghanistan and in Kuwait. Grooms as well as brides are Tebowing before they tie the knot. Smallchildren are Tebowing. Soldiers and airline pilots are Tebowing. A miner in New Zealand Tebowsdeep under the earth and a mountain climber in Austria Tebows on top of the world. Some are not so enthused about Tebowing. The administration at Riverhead High School in LongIsland suspended four boys for Tebowing in the hallways of the school. One of the suspended wasConner Carroll. When asked on ESPN's Sports Center if his suspension was worth it he replied, "Idid this to show tribute to Tim Tebow. He is a winner, he is a leader, he has great faith, you know,he's a perfect guy to follow after...he is not a guy doing steroids or drugs or anything like that. He'san ideal role model. People should look up to him." The list of athletes with a criminal record is too long to add to this discussion. Recently, a ChicagoBears player was arrested for setting up a drug distribution ring in the city of Chicago. Collegecoaches (from Penn State and Syracuse) have been accused of sexually molesting minors. Whyare so many expending so much energy hating on a man who is one of the few remaining, decentrole models for American youth? Doug Giles expressed this conundrum well in an article he wrote for Townhall: "Let me see if I getthis straight: A sex worshipping, multi-tattooed thug with three illegit kids from three differentwomen scores a touchdown and then proceeds to simulate a sex act in the end zone - in front ofour children and the millions watching by television - and that's okay? Why sure it is. Who are weto judge? Matter of fact, let's give that future inmate a Nike ad and bump his contract up a few milbecause he brings spice (and crabs) to the game. Ah... sweet progress." Why do they hate on Tebow? It's not because he is obnoxious, it's not because he is rude ordepraved. It's not because of his football skills or lack thereof. They hate on him because he is notashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ and because he truly believes it is the power of God forsalvation for everyone who believes. (Romans 1:16) Jeffrey Kuhner, in an article for the Washington Times writes: "Christianity is gradually beingpurged from the public square. Christmas celebrations have become offensive.
