What does it prove if Tim Tebow’s NOT a virgin? That he’s a liar? A hypocrite? A… human?
From The Washington Post’s The Temptation of Tim Tebow:
I’m throwing a penalty flag. The infraction? Roughing the passer. As well as millions of people worldwide, some people of faith, all people of conviction, who live by the same values the passer lives by.
The injured party? New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow. The guilty party? AshleyMadison.com, a Web site whose sole contribution to the greater cultural good is helping married men and women arrange secret adulterous affairs. You may have heard how Ashley Madison has offered a bounty of $1 million to anyone who can offer proof of having had sex with Tebow, the famously and unapologetically Christian athlete who has publicly declared – because the media have been rude enough to ask him the question – that he is, at age 24 and single, a virgin.
You heard it right, folks. One million dollars to anyone who can prove they had sex with Tim Tebow.
- Question: Why is Tim Tebow’s alleged virginity important?
- Answer: Because he’s a Christian.
Yes, it’s about money. Yes, it’s about headlines. Yes, it’s about taking advantage of the Tebow bandwagon.
But at it’s heart, it’s about denigrating believers.
Thankfully, the Christian religion does not require my perfection — or Tim Tebow’s, Mel Gibson’s, Ted Haggard’s, or anyone’s — for its validation. In fact, Christianity has survived centuries of liars, racists, misogynists, madmen, con-men, hypocrites, and ex-virgins.
More power to Tim Tebow. May he stand strong. And if he’s proven to be an ex-virgin? A lying ex-virgin? A lying, hypocritical ex-virgin? A lying, phony-baloney, two-faced, goody-two-shoes, hypocritical, ex-virgin?
Hey, welcome to the club.
