It is clear that Tim Tebow is unwavering in his commitment to his values, his religious faith and once he chooses to follow a path, he doesn’t veer, unlike most people who choose the easy and popular path.
Even for a physically beautiful Miss USA Olivia Culpa, Tim Tebow stays strong in his journey of Faith. She was silly to think his character would collapse under the weight of her beauty?
Tim Tebow’s relationship with former Miss USA model Olivia Culpa is over. Because, according to reports, Culpo is upset that the couple isn’t having sex, since Tebow has decided to remain abstinent until marriage.
So long story short, a report that should have come as no surprise since Tebow has already had one relationship end because of his moral stand and maybe, just maybe, God-forbid engender some sense of begrudging respect from the media elite for at least having the courage of his convictions, has instead triggered a few juvenile headlines and one-liners from a legion of sports reporters who would never be allowed in the same room as a Miss USA, current or former. Unless they bought a ticket.
First up is the New York Daily News, who ran with this ultra-original header:
“Tim Tebow still can’t find the end zone as girlfriend Olivia Culpo breaks it off over lack of sex”
Followed-up by this quip:
“For once, it’s not Tim Tebow who’s having trouble scoring – it’s his girlfriend.”
At the risk of being graphic here, the report wasn’t that Tebow “can’t find the end zone,” the problem was that Tebow would not enter the end zone. Nor, was he having “trouble scoring.” He chose not to score.
Do you see the irony here? Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner receives a heroes welcome wherever HE goes, carrying the banner for LGBTQX. Hailed for courage, Jenner receives trophy’s and awards and accolade from the press and a surprising number of people who self-identify as ‘christian’ YET, Tim Tebow receives ridicule.
Why do WE allow a poisonous culture to define who heroes really are?
Tim Tebow doesn’t ask for us to ‘stick up for him’ but at the same time; shouldn’t we stand in support of OUR values and OUR faith? Perhaps if WE stood together there would be less temptation to assail excellent living? I talk extensively about this in my book, “Excellence Killed the Church, How Mediocrity is Destroying America!”, and in my book I peel back the layers of feckless leadership from within ‘the church’ and it’s sheepish people and pastors….
Heroes often stand alone. When we ask “Why aren’t there more heroes?” Perhaps we need only to look in the mirror.
