Who are the real bullies in America these days? From the Christian Post:
NY Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is facing criticism yet again for his choice of speaking engagements, just weeks after canceling his scheduled appearance at First Baptist Church of Dallas with Pastor Robert Jeffress.
Tebow’s speaking engagements have made for a lot of news stories in recent months – he was criticized last month by a number of liberal sources that described Pastor Jeffress as an anti-gay preacher who was also anti-Mormon and anti-Semitic. Jeffress explained that he was not teaching people to hate anyone, but Tebow still decided to cancel his appearance after “new information” was made available to him.
Some conservative commentators said that the quarterback, one of the most popular Christian sports figures in recent times, did the wrong thing by listening to the media and backing down from the appearance in Texas.
Now, many are pointing out that Tebow’s upcoming speech at Liberty University in Virginia on March 8 is equally controversial.
As one of the largest Christian universities in the world, founded in 1971 by televangelist and Southern Baptist leader Jerry Falwell, Liberty holds itself to a strict code of conduct that bans non-marital sexual relations, “or the encouragement or advocacy of any form of sexual behavior that would undermine the Christian identity or faith mission of the University.”
The university has also been described as holding “anti-gay” views for their traditional stance on marriage that seeks to preserve marriage between one man and one woman.
A petition protesting Tebow’s appearance has already garnered over 10,000 signatures…
Dare to question Liberal Dogma on social issues and be prepared to face all kinds of intimidating tactics from Leftist bullies.
