Notoriously homophobic Denver Bronco and Focus on the Family shill, Tim Tebow, is shown here rewarding fellow teammate Demaryius Thomas with a kiss on the mouth during a game on Sunday. Thomas had caught the first of two touchdown passes from Tebow that positioned the Broncos for a win.
A few years ago, Tebow had another PDA of man-love with University of Florida teammate Tony Joiner that had the college football world agog.
Tebow, who faced controversy after he made a PSA for viciously antigay, anti-choice evangelical group Focus on the Family, is now forbidden from talking about same-sex marriage, as was shown during an interviewed by the Washington Post’s Sally Quinn who cooed over Tebow like a 14-year old girl.
There is something very beguiling about Tebow. He seems almost an unmolded adolescent who is just beginning to think for himself, examine his life, and ask questions. He is open and friendly with a good sense of humor. It’s hard to imagine such innocence in someone his age and in his field, but talking to him, it’s hard to believe it isn’t genuine. When asked questions he clearly has not been asked before, he ponders and tries to respond as openly and honestly as he can. Only once, when asked about same-sex marriage, did his publicist, on the other end of the phone, protectively jump in to object that that was off message.
“Very beguiling.” Sally, please. Yes, Tim Tebow is hot-as-hell but not so hot that your journalist objectivity should get washed away in your vaginal juices.
In any case, if Tebow keeps having these Tommy Boy moments, I will be forced to start questioning just how committed he is to the Evangelical movement?
