Here’s the excerpt by David Gibson:
“Jesus now has a football jersey, and it is a tribute to Tim Tebow.
Some believers think that’s getting it backwards: “Sports is one thing, and Jesus is another thing,” said Traci Yown, a mom Christmas shopping for her son.
Others say it honors both Jesus and Tebow, the Denver Broncos QB who is famous, and controversial, for combining his evangelical faith with his on-field witness: “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,” said Baptist pastor Marcus Buckley.
As if that’s not enough, Pamela Anderson is going to be the Virgin Mary.”
