Tebow Cancels Appearance In Dallas

NFL QB Christian Celebrity Tim Tebow cancels a planned appearance at First Baptist in Dallas because of the church's pastor's hateful and bizarre comments on various subjects over the past few years. I heard Pastor Jeffress on WBAP radio (WBAP is W- BAPtist radio?!) this morning claim that he's never said anything hateful or immoderate and that condemning homosexuality "is what Christianity has always preached." Uh, hey, there Pastor Jeffress, what about Christianity's similarly historical support for or at least toleration of slavery? Even Christian theologians CAN recognize and correct mistakes, can't they? Then after asserting that he's never said anything that wasn't "the love of Jesus," Jeffress acknowledged during his WBAP interview that Tebow had canceled his appearance because the celebrity football star needed to avoid "controversial" publicity.
