postheadericon Sportscaster on ‘Tebowing’: “Stop posing like him, and start living like him”

Tim Tebow's open belief in God has added fuel to the fire of his detractors.

Tim Tebow's open belief in God has added fuel to the fire of his detractors.

If you live in Colorado, unless you live under a rock, you know who Tim Tebow is.  The potential future of the Denver Broncos has become a hero for some, a villain for others, and not because of his play on the field but because of the man himself.

Tebow is an devout Christian and while he does not openly profess it or preach it, he also makes no apologies for his faith – nor should he.  He also is famous for the story of how he came into this world when his mother disregarded doctors’ advice to have an abortion due to dangers to her health when she was pregnant.

The Heisman Trophy winner became a big target of women’s rights groups and Planned Parenthood when Focus on the Family aired an ad featuring Tebow and his mom.  The very innocuous advertisement seemed to not only heighten his support but had a similar effect with his detractors making them much more against him.

Images of Tebow kneeling, bowing his head and saying a few words to God while on the football field and in the locker room recently have the anti-religious leftists and feminists going nuts.  The pose has gone viral with people now ‘Tebowing’, much like the idiotic ‘planking’ that seemed amusing to the simpleminded in this world.

While Tebow has said he doesn’t mind the mimics, it is often done as a form of mockery.  Opposing players did it on the field this past weekend and fans who dislike the man have taken it on as their way of making fun of him.

The thing is, these people aren’t just making fun of the man – they are mocking his belief in God and by proxy, mocking God himself.  It is actually quite disgraceful and a sad commentary not on Tebow but on those that are doing the ‘Tebowing.’

Much to my amazement, local sportscaster Drew Soicher launched a scathing commentary the other night on the topic of ‘Tebowing’ that echoes my thoughts.

Soicher said, “There is nothing funny about ‘Tebowing.’ This growing phenomenon of people kneeling in pose like Tim Tebow is rude, disrespectful behavior. Disparagement made at Tebow’s character is disgraceful.”

“You want to mimic Tim Tebow?  Great idea! Stop posing like him, and start living like him,” Soicher said in closing.

I couldn’t agree more.  Watch Soicher’s commentary below:

    Galatians 6:7 o not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.
    i think who ever started this as a joke needs to stop it.
    Praying to GOD is not about “look at me ” or lets make fun of GOD or those who pray
    people go to far when it comes to things and this one takes the cake!
    i have seen the pics of even surgeons on a operating table tebowing and smiling like its a joke !
    how can you take something this personal a relationship between a person and GOD and treat it like a game

    Jesus said in his WORD not mine btw ” Romans 14:11 t is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.’”

    you can smile , poke fun , laugh all you want mock GOD but in the end its HE you will meet face to face
    and you wont be smiling then !

    prayer is sacred not a game !
