I get that there are just some things that I won’t ever understand. I’m cool with that. One of the more current things I just don’t get is the hatred for Tim Tebow. I know I used the word hatred. It’s such a strong word but that’s what I see in the media, on Facebook and Twitter. I just don’t get it.
I get that you might dislike him as a quarterback or as a person but where is this hatred coming from? How many of you that hate his have actually met the man and can honestly say you don’t like him? I can’t tell you how many statuses and tweets I saw that said something along of lines of “Time for a Tebow takedown!” Like all the Patriots were taking on Tebow all by his lonesome.
I guess I really don’t have to think all that hard about it. I think there is so much hatred because he is living his faith. Not only his he living his faith, he’s using actions and not just words. He’s visual about praying. He’s not hiding it but daring to do it out in the open. I’ll be the first to admit that I think it’s annoying that it’s called “Tebowing” instead of praying but that’s a whole other rant. I’m also not surprised by it. Jesus told us that the world would hate us (his followers) because they first hated him (John 15:18). How can you hate a guy who inspires others and gives of himself? Check out this article….what an amazing guy!
So if you’re one of those who hate or strongly dislike Tebow, by all means, go for it. It’s hurting no one but you. And it makes you silly and petty. So even though the Broncos got their butts kicked by New England, I’m hoping they have a great season next year!
