It seems like everyone wants to weigh in on the Tim Tebow debate these days. It has escalated from sports personalities to just about anyone, even former vice president candidates. Sarah Palin was being interviewed on Fox News when the host asked her how she felt about the very open Christian quarterback. In case you don’t want to listen to the interview (the Tebow part is at the 5:22 mark), here is a summary of what was said.
HOST: “And governor very quickly we just have a few seconds and while we’ve got you, I know you’re a person of faith and I’d like to get your take on Tim Tebow, and the controversy on him being so public about his faith.”
PALIN: “Oh I am so pro Tebow, you know he is so unashamed of his savior, Jesus of Nazareth. He knows Jesus is going to rock your world when you give it over to him, and he’s bold about it, and he knows that the son of God should be honored and praised. Tebow does that and I respect it.”
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that Palin is a Tebow fan, but it just strikes me as odd. Maybe if Palin decides to run for President any time soon, she could use Tebow to gather crucial votes. She could pair up with Skip Bayless to run a pro-Tebow ticket that would probably result in the destruction of humanity as we know it. Not from the Tebow standpoint, but from the point of having to listen to both Palin and Bayless at the same time.
