Tim Tebow Jesus Jerseys Draw Mixed Emotions from Holiday Shoppers

Remember the jersey that you see in the picture above?  Of course you do, because back in the summer we here at LBS made you aware that these bad boys existed.  That’s right, Broncos fans have come up with the brilliant idea of customizing Tim Tebow jerseys by putting the name of the most important man in Tebow’s life on the back.  As expected, the jerseys have drawn a mixed reaction from people who think it is disrespectful to the Christian faith and others who see it as humorous or a compliment.

“Sports is one thing, and Jesus is another thing,” Traci Yown, a mom out Christmas shopping for her son, said according to KTVQ. “I like to have their names, their last names on the jerseys. I’m a Christian, but I mean I wouldn’t want people going around having Jesus on the back of their jerseys.”

Not all Christians share Yown’s feelings on the matter, however.  In fact, Rev. Marcus Buckley of the Riverside Baptist Church thinks people who have a problem with the name Jesus being printed on the back of a jersey must feel that it’s wrong to express their love for Jesus.

“To me it just shows a cultural bias against Christ and Christianity,” Rev. Buckley said. “It’s not saying that he is Christ, it’s saying he’s trying to demonstrate and live that out and as Christians that’s what were supposed to do. You can pretty much believe whatever you want to in today’s society. But as soon as you begin taking a stand for Christ, then that’s not acceptable anymore.”

There you have it: Two completely different opinions from people with similar religious beliefs.  Whether you think Jesus jerseys or Tebowing are disrespectful or not, we can all agree that Tebow Nation has an interesting way of spreading the Christian faith.

    Your exactly right Corin! Cam Newton is putting up gawdy stats but how many wins has he put up in the W column???? Pluzzz no one really knows whether Tebow is going to make it in the NFL but I can tell you one thing. If there has ever been a QB that will give you 110% every week and live the life like he does that would be Tebow. Now everyone needs to get off his back since none of you are coaches in the NFL or psycics!!!

    I cant think of too many qb’s being that efficient. Not one actually… 2 throws got him 2 tds 89 yds and a win… Not helping his team. That what it is a “team.” Their losses were handed to them by 35 or more points. The team did not play well.  Ya’ll got sick of him while he was at Florida cuz Lou Holtz would never shut up about him and since he was winning so many games We were expecting him to walk on water. And the expectations of him are insane. Sam Bradford hurt again. Once in college twice in the NFL. Colt McCoy wheres he playing? What bout Jimmy Clausen? I believe went inn front of timmy… So the better passers from the draft are any better? Drew Brees almost surpassed the all time passing record but didnt win the division and where did they go next. Thats like saying it doesnt matter if you win or lose as long as you had fun. Thats bull… Its about winning… And im just saying that FSU doesnt suck… (7-3)

    those yards you put up there try 400+ with a big ole L in the loss column. Stats do matter but only in fantasy football.
