Default Teabow anti-gay?


Tim Tebow to speak at virulently anti-gay, anti-Semitic Dallas megachurch



Rick Chandler

Feb 14, 2013, 5:49 PM EST

It seems that lately Tim Tebow has been making more speaking appearances in church than he has quarterback appearances in NFL games. Tebow made headlines with his Easter address in Georgetown, Texas in April, and his talk at a Scottsdale, AZ church earlier this month. And now he’s got another gig at a megachurch in Dallas, only this one comes with a large helping of controversy.

Tebow has a speaking engagement on April 28 at First Baptist Dallas, according to the church’s website. That’s the church led by pastor Robert Jeffress, a virulently anti-gay and anti-Semitic evangelical Christian who has made quite a name for himself in religious circles.


In October 2011, Jeffress endorsed Texas Governor Rick Perry for president, then went on to claim that Islam, Mormonism and Judaism are heretical religions “from the pit of hell.”

On the eve of the presidential election in November 2012, Jeffress warned his Dallas congregation that President Barack Obama’s re-election would “lead to the rise of the Antichrist,” according to The Christian Post.

Jeffress also gained notoriety for his statements about the gay community. According to ThinkProgress, during the same speech where he endorsed Rick Perry in 2011, Jeffress told a crowd at the high-profile Values Voters Summit that gays should not be allowed in the military because “Seventy percent of the gay population” has AIDS.

A belief that goes against every fragment of his faith? Sure is.

Anybody who is Catholic or at least understands the bible should not be surprised by this. There is a reason God created Eve for and from Adam.

He's a Southern Baptist. Southern Baptists universally believe that homosexuality is a sin. This is not news. They also believe all non-Christian belief systems come from the devil. This is also not news.

I'd be shocked if Tebow thinks the earth is only 6,000 years old.

He probably is anti-gay.

He probably also isn't giving a speech about homosexuality. All we know is he is going to a church that has strong views on homosexuality and he is giving speech there.

I don't know how you can call yourself a christian with a basic understanding of the bible and not be anti-gay. 1 Corintians 6:9-11 and 1 Timothy 1:8-11.

I think it's about the Christians that take the bible literally and the Christians that understand it as a 2000 year old story written down and edited by a bunch of old dudes 300 years later at the Council of Nicea.

I dunno. I know a lot of people are fascinated by religion but the whole thing tires me out more than the WRP forum.

Why would they call themselves Christians if they don't know what to believe?

For sure.... I am a huge believer. But I do have my issues with the institution that is church. That being one of them, and how the Vatican used to protect or come with a lame excuse to protect the Priest, when in truth, they should be protecting the kids. At least they finally condemned them, but still it took a long time for that.

Nice choice of church.

But Tebow’s peace-and-love message could be tested by the megachurch’s evangelical Christian pastor, the Rev. Robert Jeffress.

He once accused gay activists of trying to hide “the link between homosexuality and pedophilia.”

In November, the preacher warned his flock that President Obama’s reelection “would lead to a rise of the antiChrist.”

While endorsing Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s presidential bid in October 2011, Jeffress bashed Islam, Judaism and Mormonism as heretical religions “from the pit of hell.”

Ok, let's get our torches and go after Kaylore and Dom!

How is the Mormon church not Christian? Hello. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Have to wonder if those people that judge and are anti gay see themselves at all in those scriptures. Probably not.

I did back when I drank a lot. Also when I was divorced and screwed around i wasn't any better. The standard of behavior for Christians according to the Bible is extremely high.

or... you could look at it this way. Women outnumber men 2 to 1 in the world, the projection is 3 to 1 within the next few years.
so for every dude that goes gay and loves up on another dude.

that means it skews the available female numbers to a straight man's favor.
**** Gangnam, in a few years it will be Harem style.

'Behavior' is the key term there. At least from a Catholic perspective, same sex attraction is not a sin, though it is viewed as a disorder (not in some medical sense, though), just like alcoholism, drug addiction, etc. When the attraction turns into action--living a gay lifestyle--then it becomes a sin, just as when a hetero attraction turns into sleeping around, cheating on your spouse, getting hooked on porn, etc. the sin is in the action, not the hetero attraction. All are called to chastity, hetero or homo, which if done right, keeps us detached from sinful action. [/end lecture on Catholic Catechism]
