In a series of tweets, Tim Tebow has announced that he has cancelled his upcoming appearance at the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas.
I’ve met Pastor Jeffress (and have had the pleasure to visit First Baptist) and found him to be a man of God. His comments about homosexuality in the past lacked nuance and tact, but as far as I can tell, they basically reflect the orthodox view on homosexuality.Of course, it’s not just what you say, but how you say it. I love Tim Tebow but must admit I am disappointed that he apparently felt the need to back out of this speaking engagement due to public pressure. I suppose he didn’t want to die on this hill, but if First Baptist of Dallas is now seen as out of bounds, how soon will it be until the rest of us are, too?
