A Few Videos Of The Controversial Pastor At The Church Where Tim Tebow Will Speak

Well, Tim Tebow’s back in the news, and now it’s got nothing to do with playing time or lack thereof. No, now that other reason everyone pays attention to Tebow – his outspoken Christianity – is back at the forefront, thanks to an upcoming speaking engagement at the First Baptist Church in Dallas. Tebow’s done things like this before, but the difference this time is that the senior pastor at First Baptist Dallas, Robert Jeffress, has a history of saying controversial things, and on TV, to boot. Jeffress’s remarks have led some to brand him as anti-gay and anti-Semitic.

RELATED: Tebow has canceled his scheduled appearance at Jeffress’ church.

But is he? Well, again, as luck would have it, Jeffress goes on TV all the time. So rather than us passing judgment, we can let his words do all the talking, and you can decide for yourself whether you think Jeffress is deserving of these labels. Here he is on the “the Boy Scouts might let gay kids in” story:

On Mormons:

On the Defense of Marriage Act:

On the inevitable downfall of America, and why (Hitler’s name comes up):

You can find more here and here. So… might Tebow come to regret speaking at this church? Does Jeffress smartly conceal alarmist-at-best, hateful-at-worst ideas behind a genteel veneer that briefly makes saps like me feel bad for calling those ideas what they are? The choice is yours.

    I don’t understand the point of this article, unless the author is just now discovering that Christianity has always been controversial and divisive. Has he not been aware that, according to the Bible, faith in Christ is the only path to salvation, that people don’t get to redefine God, as the Mormons have done, or rewrite the rules, as homosexuals are attempting to do?

    Ohhhhhhhhh, I see….. Mormonism and Hinduism are cults, but Catholocism is not because this clown says so.

    He’s not a big fan of Catholicism either, for the record http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nI0MBgA7ckA

    Maybe the point of the article is that the rules are archaic and need rewriting.

    His admonishment of other religions, as he stands in front of a graphic of the Statue Of Liberty, is a little ironic.
