If you saw the BCS Championship game tonight between the Florida Gators and the Oklahoma Sooners, no doubt you caught a glimpse of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and the black strips under his eyes with the phrasing John 3:16.
It’s not a surprise he would want to do that — Tebow’s never held back his Christian faith… and if you want to preach, why not go after a national viewing audience, right?
Amazing how lenient the NCAA is about things like that…
At the rate he’s going, we’ll be seeing this video game cover shortly:
William Lobdell — author of Losing My Religion: How I Lost My Faith Reporting on Religion in America-and Found Unexpected Peace — raises a great point:
… I have to wonder if his coaches or NCAA officials would allow him to have “There Is” “No God” written on his eye black below his right and left eyes…
There’s no way he would’ve been allowed onto that field with that message.
Lobdell thinks those personal touches will soon be banned.
Let’s hope he’s right.
