Tim tebow prayer
As we gear up for the 2018 NFL season, the debate over protesting rages on. But one individual that wishes to be nowhere near said debate is former quarterback Tim Tebow.Tebow, now trying to accomplish his dream of playing Major League Baseball, is currently an outfielder with the New York Mets. He’s hitting .241/.333/.370 with seven doubles and four home runs for their AA affiliate. But when Tebow did play football, kneeling was part of his persona. Not kneeling in protest, of course. But kneeling in prayer.Which brings us to the point. Time and time again, a photo of him surfaces suggesting that he’s kneeling during the anthem to protest abortion. However, like Fox News misrepresenting Eagles players who were praying, that just isn’t the case. Tebow has always been a very religious person — to the point where fans made up a word (Tebowing) for his celebrations after scoring a touchdown. The reality of the situation, of course, is that his … [Read more...] about Tim Tebow was never kneeling in protest
Tim Tebow did not take a knee during the national anthem, nor was he protesting anything when he knelt as an NFL quarterback. Nor is he very happy that people are bringing his kneeling into the debate over protests during the NFL’s national anthem. When Tim Tebow was a quarterback in the National Football League, he would periodically take a knee for a short, silent prayer. His action became known by many as “Tebowing.”Though, lately, some trying to justify the current spate of anthem protests by NFL players are pointing to Tim’s “Tebowing” as an example of how one man “knelt” on the field and did not get in trouble for it, USA Today reported. For his part, Tebow sees no similarity at all between his actions and those of the players that came after him. Now trying his hand as a professional baseball player, Tebow spoke about the controversy Friday before the New York Mets’ Double-A team, the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, prepared to … [Read more...] about Tim Tebow Upset by ‘Tebowing’ Analogy to National Anthem Debate
It’s amazing how you “Donald Trump haters” like to blame the president for just about everything. The real reason NFL owners are laying down the “law” about the national anthem is not because they are caving to Trump but because fans protested by not going to games or watching on television. Kiz, I don’t remember you supporting Tim Tebow’s kneeling and pointing to Jesus after touchdowns. Oh, that’s right. Christianity is not politically correct nowadays, is it? T.S., supports kneeling in prayer Kiz: There’s no cheering in the press box, but I salute athletes who endorse more than pizza and stand (or kneel) for something bigger than sports. This includes Brandon Marshall, Tebow, Jake Plummer and Martina Navratilova. When the NFL fined Plummer in 2004 for wearing a helmet decal in tribute to fallen military hero Pat Tillman, I wrote a column praising the quarterback and criticized the league that employed him. What gets lost in the … [Read more...] about Kickin’ it with Kiz: Is there a difference between Brandon Marshall and Tim Tebow kneeling on an NFL field?
