Jake Plummer: I’m not dissing Tebow, I just don’t need to hear it

By Michael David Smith

Plummer created a controversy when he said he wishes Tebow would tone it down with talking about his religion every time he can. Tebow responded that he’ll take every opportunity to praise the Lord, comparing his own declarations that he loves Jesus with a man telling his wife he loves her.

Fresh off another come-from-behind win, Tim Tebow’s faith–or the way he chooses to express it–is still causing controversy. I love the guy’s boldness, but is this a case where he needs to, like a good quarterback, pick his spots? He publicly prays all the time. Sometimes it’s better to be as wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove, after all.
