Bronco fans customize Tim Tebow jerseys with “Jesus” in replace of his name-but is this offensive? Read more here
Here's a thought….if you don't like it, don't buy it!
Don't worry I won't be buying it. But I do find it ridiculous. Nothing against the young man, but I really do have a problem w/ some of his fans. If you like him fine, but there is no reason to make derogatory remarks about other young players(like many of his fans do even the so called Christian ones). The jersey doesn't make any sense to me cause he's not Jesus & I can't think of a religious connection to the # 15.
I just think w/anything if you don't like it, don't buy it. I don't think there will be a market for it personally so it will more thank likely be a flop, but I do LOVE Tebow and I'm still a NOLE. I understand the offense to it completely. I think people make a big deal out of issues though when it only pertains to Christianity. I wonder if the company chose to put pizza on the back if people would really give a ratz!
I am def NOT a Gator fan, but I DO really like Tebow!! He has good values and isn't afraid to let everyone know…so what if ppl get offended. I think ppl may misunderstand the jersey and think he's portraying himself as Jesus. I wish there were more athletes like him for our boys to look up to! Doesn't hurt he was HSchooled…and he had the same pediatricians as my kids .
Oh I agree if u don't like it don't buy it. I'm not a fan & I'm not a hater. I would probably like him if his fans weren't so ridiculous. I believe some are actually trying to put him up there w/ Jesus. I hadn't heard any controversy. I only heard the people that say if you're' not a fan or don't like the jersey then something wrong w/ that person. I thought all the Christian/religious organizations were for it. I could think of a lot of things other than a fball jersey to be offensive. I'll have to post some later. Have a good rest of the day.
Thanks Dana. Sorry so late I'm late in responding I ran up to the hospital to visit my mom. She's just recovering from her second knee replacement, but doing good. Yes, Jess that's what I love about him and I admire his outspoken Christian stance. That is what has made him so popular w/the religious organizations. It is sad there aren't more like him. I say it's about time we have more people stand up that are Christians in the athletic arena and proclaim their faith. But, it's hard b/c with that huge platform comes great responsibility and scrutiny by the public (Christian and non-Christian) @Dana – Wow, I haven't heard people say if you don't like him or the jersey something is wrong w/you. That's pretty sad. I get both interpretations of the jersey, but I just really don't think it's that big of a deal as people are making it out to be. I think some people are taking it as Tebow thinks he's God (I don't agree w/that) since most people associate Tebow w/God anyway. I think other people wouldn't wear it b/c it references the individual's name who is on the football team (Tebow) and they find that offensive. I think their all stupid angles. It's a shirt, and I don't think anyone should be offended by it any more than someone wearing a Nike shirt that gives to unChristian things. In the end….if you don't like it, don't buy it, but don't run around making a big deal and fuss about it. That's all…I think. )
Yea, some guy in Neptune beach was interviewed (who's a gator fan) said if people didn't like tebow then they were haters & the sports talk radio shows which really should be the Tebow talk radio have pretty much said them same. Then there are a few people I've had my own conversations w/ that actually get pretty mean if u don't basically worship him. There are many other Christian athletes w/ strong platforms. Its just the media is far up tebow tail you never get to hear about them. Glad to hear your mom is recovering. How much longer dirs she have to stay there?
Oh, I see! I try and stay away from as many GATOR fans as I can if you know what I mean so probably why I haven't heard anyone say that. Go NOLES!! My mom is there until Friday…Yay! She is so ready to get home!!
I'm not that religious and I find it offensive. It's not a matter of don't like don't buy because it is broadcasted on the backs of broncos fans everywhere therefore it is legally an obscenity…
Remember John Lennon's comment?? Kind of killed the Beatles for awhile… watch out broncos..
And remember, God TRULY cares who wins at football….. What a crock!!
I think this takes filling under the category of taking the Lord's name in vain.
I lived in jax for 12 yrs tebow might be a nice guy but he has a problem playing with the pros
