Just wanted you to know Tebow also does motivational speaking if one does wish to book him. ESPN knows he brings attention however, just like this thread. He is a polarizing figure for whatever reason.
If you can't see the reason for the angst directed both at tebow and anyone who questions his moral standing then you are trying very hard to ignore the obvious.

He must not feel the call to preach, and you shouldn't be a preacher if you aren't called to it.

As for his love life, I respect him for waiting until he meets the right woman for him. Not every man who doesn't sleep around is gay. Also, not every woman trumpets her connection to a high-profile man. He may very well have a girlfriend who chooses to stay away from the cameras, lest she be accused of dating him because of his notoriety. Many high-profile people prefer partners who don't use them for publicity. Dating is a mine field for celebrities.

BTW, I would not stop liking Tebow if he were gay. There are gay Christians who choose to live celibate lives, just as there are single heterosexual Christians who are celibate. I don't expect non-Christians to understand what I'm saying.

Sorry, can't imagine a valid reason for the angst I am seeing. My opinion, of course.

Well, my observations are that Tebow makes people pick between supporting or rejecting an extremist version of evangelical christianity. Either side you pick support tebow or not his persona forces you to pick a side and that choice is not one people (just this thread as an example) make void of emotion.

Hell the post beofre yours equates liking tt to whether you can accept the concept of a sexually active homosexual christian dirrectly to whether or not you can like tebow as a person. I'm sure he's a nice guy. He seems to do nice things, but as long as he positions himself asa spokesperson for evangelical radicalism, either supporting or disliking him will result in the kind of attacks that you've seen in this thread. Of course you've known this all along and more likely my saying you can't imagine a reason for the angst you mean you can see how people could find his view of the world as offensive.

Maybe he just wants to have sex with Tebow and is mad he'll never get the chance.

No but the ones who have the notoriety that Tebow does should use their fame in order to lead others.

And you don't think he does that by bringing up his faith in front of millions on TV? Or the fact that he continually gets criticized for his faith, yet still stands firm in his faith. You're right, he should preach, he doesn't do anything with his faith at all but keep it bottled up inside.

I am not sure how he is an extremist. I find myself in a strange place because I really don't like the guy, he beat our tails and I think Urban Meyer hid behind him to cover all sorts of crap going on at Florida. I don't think he is an extremist either. What has he done exactly that "forced people to choose." I can approach Tim Tebow with no emotion at all, don't care if he is an NFL qb or a missionary. Why do others get offended that he vocal about his faith?

I m not sure that I can respond to a question of how his views represent an extremist version of christianity other than to say that he presents veiwswidely considered anti homosexual and antiwomen's rights regularly. A lot of people find those views offensive. This leads to a large portion of people disliking him.

You can agree or disagree with his stance but its hard to believe that you can't see how a prolife antigay message would be controversial. Further considering many branches of christianity can embrace more moderate views, I believe its simple to see why one might consider his views as radical.

As for people getting offended by his expression of his faith, if your faith takes controversial stances it will offend people.

Default SEC Network Hires Tebow

I don't get offended about his faith but what does bother me is when he uses his faith to cover up a different lifestyle.
