Tim Tebow Doesn’t Want You to Leave Tim Tebow Alone

Not only can he take it, he wants to take it:

I’ll go a step further and say that, in so doing, Tebow knows full well that he is opening himself up to satire, because that is also a part of the deal evangelicals make when they dedicate themselves to converting a skeptical public. That’s why, when Clay Travisfamously asked in a press conference if Tebow was a virgin and caused so many sportswriters to flutter their lace hankies, Tebow simply smiled and answered the question. Hewants people to ask that question. He wants every opportunity to talk about his beliefs in public, and he is smart enough to know that he will often rile folks in the process. Bruce Arthur and Jemele Hill and the Very Serious Media People are throwing a sneeze-guard around Tebow’s religion that Tebow never would’ve asked for in the first place.

As usual, the problem is not with the thing, it is with the fan club. As with the Beatles, Jesus and Bill Maher, Tim Tebow could never hope to approach the level of offensiveness that his fans achieve on his behalf. Being defended is, in some ways, worse than being attacked, because your attackers at least give you the credit of assuming you are on their level.

Your defenders want you to be smaller, and in need of their protection. So that they can be bigger.

  1. With entertainers, of which he is one, the best possible world is to have people who both love and hate you with a passion. It keeps your name in the papers and gives you all the free publicity you could possibly want which then translates into even bigger paydays.
    Follow the money.

  2. Tim Jebow makes me want to vomit. Christianist hypocridiot. I don’t embrace his or any religion. Jebow conveniently forgot his Jeebus’ words in Matthew 6:5-6:
    “5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
    6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”
