Godless Libtard Sports Writer for CBS Feels the Heat For Slamming QB Tim Tebow’s Christian Faith

Being a Missourian and having seen all this done before with an openly Christian quarterback named Kurt Warner, I’ve come to realize that when Libtard sportswriters and newscasters can’t attack your impeccable record on the field, they fall back to the indefensible position of attacking and ridiculing your faith in Christ.  Of course, this just goes to expose the real reason behind their hatred of said quarterbacks—they hate God and anything else which reminds them they are on the road to hell:

Is Christian Football Star Tim Tebow Really Guilty of ‘Blasphemy’?

August 16, 2011 – Billy Hallowell – The Blaze

Charging blasphemy, which is “the crime of assuming to oneself the rights or qualities of God,” is no small accusation. Yet, it’s exactly the charge being thrown at Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.

Tebow, an unabashed evangelical Christian, has made his faith known for years. Thus, it was no surprise that, with his recent NFL challenges in mind (he’s been named the backup for Kyle Orton), the 24-year-old told Denver Post columnist Woody Paige the following: “I’m relying as always on my faith.” This statement, in itself, shows that the famed football player believes strongly in his faith.

But, it was this very comment that sent CBS News’ Gregg Doyel into a tizzy. In a piece published earlier this month, Doyel targeted Tebow’s aforementioned stance on faith and tied it to unrealistic expectations he believes the young player has. Doyel writes:

He has gone through life believing — knowing — that God’s plan for him involves the spectacular, not the mundane. It’s kind of like reincarnation: People who believe in that sort of thing tend to think they were someone famous in a previous life. I’ve never heard anyone say that, in another life, they shoveled out stables for a small farm in Kansas.

He went on to quip, “He’ll make it in this league — for the Bible tells him so.” While this seems like negative commentary on Christianity, Doyel says it’s something very different. In his article, he explains that he’s not against religion, nor is he against Tebow’s belief system. He even admits to, himself, being a churchgoer and an admitted sinner.

In the end, Doyel claims that although Tebow is “nice,” his comments about the role of faith in his life aren’t realistic. He writes:

But his faith baffles me, or at least the way he expresses his faith, because it never allows for personal failure — and that’s not the world we live in…Tebow has basically said, and I’m paraphrasing here, “I’ll be a starter in this league because God loves me that much.”

…what if God’s mysterious plan for Tebow is to watch from the sideline? God doesn’t plan for every Christian quarterback to be a starter, and as far as I know, He doesn’t play favorites. Not even for Tim Tebow.

Doyel concluded his piece by calling Tebow out for “blasphemy.” As a result of his negative views on Tebow, the sports reporter has received an influx of hate mail. So much so that on Monday, he Tweeted the following:

A long list of negative responses to Doyel’s commentary can be found here. While not all of the messages would be considered “hate,” many (as highlighted in the above Tweet) have been less than favorable to the writer. The USA Today highlights just two of these exchanges:

A reader named Chance Jones wrote he found Doyel’s article “extremely offensive,” that he forwarded his objections to CBS Sports and that he would no longer be a customer. “You’ll be back. When you’re finished burning books,” responded Doyel.

Another reader named Heather B. wrote the “ignorant” Doyel is “going to hell.”

Pretty strong responses, right? At the end of the day, the debate here is over whether Tebow has a realistic outlook on the role of faith in his life or whether he simply expects God to bestow upon him any and everything he’d like.

Below, watch for more about Tebow’s current NFL troubles:

Considering that the entire firestorm was set off by Tebow’s words — “I’m relying as always on my faith” — it might be better for individuals who are curious about this matter to speak with him before coming to a definitive conclusion. At the end of the day, faith is personal and Tebow may (or may not) have information that puts his views into a more digestible context.

    ROFLMAO.
    Sure they are. Why don’t you just call them what they are, you know, retards.

    How bout these American sports leagues, sportswriters and newscasters take it on the road, this is Greg Doyel reporting from Tehran, oh yeah, “There’s no fun in islam Khomeini”.

    Mongo only pawn in game of life.

    Doyel states, “…his faith baffles me, …”

    No further commentary is really necessary beyond this, his own admission of ignorance.

    I’d much rather a player demonstrate faith, and then give thanks to God for successes, than to watch the disgraceful exhibition of a player, after making a big play, pound his chest and pointing a finger to himself as if to say, “me, me, me, me, it was ALL me, me, me”. Nevermind the other 10 players on the team.

    The world is turning more narcissist by the day, especially in the world of professional sports – with perhaps one more exception that I can now point to.

    For those who do not have their Bibles handy, here is what Isaiah 40:31 says:

    “But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak.”

    Not a bad thought for any football player.

  4. Big Frank Says:

    To be a Christian or any other faith except ‘The Religion Of Peace’ due to the attitude portrayed by the political class and the MSM is almost a capital offense. These spineless, media mental midgets haven’t got a clue, and make sport of mocking anyone who shows religious beliefs, except followers of the teachings of the prophet, due to the fact that they fear some sort of violence or reprisal.

  5. CavMom Says:

    Numerous athletes give thanks to God (often times ahead of their mothers) when interviewed on an accomplishment. Why is this such an issue for Tebow? Why is there no comment when a player is hurt on the field and you can see numerous players in prayer? Seems silly to single out Tebow for his devotion and look over other players.
