The moral standards that went along with Tebow’s faith, like saving sex for marriage, were equally harassed for years. Being a 30-year-old male virgin was just insanity to the secular, sex-crazed culture. The world lost its mind when Tebow was allegedly dumped by a former Miss Universe because he wouldn’t have sex with her.
Thankfully, there have been a handful of influential figureheads that have stood up for Tebow, championing him for his strong faith rather that ridiculing him. This isn’t the first time Gene Simmons has defended Tebow.
In fact, in a 2013 interview that has since gone viral, Simmons boldly stated, “Here’s a man who believes in God and people pick on him. If he was a Jew, or a Muslim and you did that—people would never dare. But for some reason if he’s a Christian, you’re allowed to pick on him.”
And the Kiss singer didn’t stop there, as he declared the irresponsibility of journalists to be the “height of lunacy.”
“It’s the height of lunacy, and those journalists should be held accountable,” he continued. “They’re never gonna pick on a guy who tortures dogs or has perhaps gone to jail for murder, but if he believes in Christ his Lord, then it’s open season. It’s like what country are we living in?”
Wow, Simmons NAILED it there! Kudos to the Kiss rocker for stepping up to this godly man’s defense. Can’t wait to see what God has in store for Tim Tebow next!
