Jake Plummer made headlines on Monday by coming out and saying what many people already thought: that Tim Tebow goes a bit overboard with his talk about Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. Naturally, Tebow was asked about Plummer’s comments on Tuesday. You probably already have a solid idea of what his response was without us telling you, but we will anyway.
“If you’re married, and you have a wife, and you really love your wife, is it good enough to only say to your wife, I love her, the day you get married?” Tebow said in an interview on ESPN First Take. “Or should you tell her every single day when you wake up and have the opportunity? And that’s how I feel about my relationship with Jesus Christ. It is the most important thing in my life, so every opportunity I have to tell him I love him, or I’m given an opportunity to shout him out on national TV, I’m going to take that opportunity.”
Tebow then went on to explain that his relationship with Jesus is more important than anything in his life — a factoid we already shared with you a little over a week ago. He also said he had no hard feelings toward Plummer for what he said and thanked Jake for saying he’s a winner.
Say what you want to say as many times as you want to say it about Tim Tebow, but the guy’s not going to change — nor should he. There are much worse “role models” out there that people should be criticizing for the things they say in public. No matter how you look at it, Tebow is one of the good guys.
