But the public division over Tebow is stunning. His fans love him; his enemies hate him.
They hate him because he’s a public advocate for Christianity. He bows in prayer before games. He leads prayers with members of the opposing team after games. He’s a religious class act. And this freaks members of the left out. In fact, people began tweeting me during the Broncos game about how much Tebow irritated them. “Tim Tebow sucks cuz he brings God into football,” wrote one poster. “Just throw the damn ball & shut up.”
That basically summed up the problem. The goal of the left is to make religion private and irreligion public. That’s why we have a president who is considered urbane for leaving God out of a day specifically dedicated to God, and a famous quarterback considered controversial for openly mentioning Jesus.
If the left has its way on this, America is in serious trouble. Religion has always been the basis for our republic; as John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Rejecting religion leaves us adrift from our principles. In fact, it leaves us in Obamaland.
In one interview prior to his election, Obama was asked by a reporter whether he believed in sin. He said yes. What, the reporter asked, did sin mean to him? “Being out of alignment with my values,” he said.
Such narcissism is dangerous and troubling. And that’s why it was worth mentioning. That’s also why I root for Tim Tebow now, much more ardently than I did before. We need more Tim Tebows for our country to recover its sense of balance– and far fewer Barack Obamas.
