He's handsome and attractive --- on the surface. But he has also proved himself no friend to gay-shaded men. The argument about whether he's a homophobe is still running, but he's a fundamentalist Christian. And they are for sure hostile to us. Extremely hostile. The Christian-Fascists are always saying they don't hate us even as they deny us our rights. You know, all that claptrap about hate the sin love the sinner. Even as they tell us that loving another man is a sin, and that we will go to hell for it. Even as they implicitly encourage us to lie about our sexuality, encourage us to go back to the poisoned confines of the closet, encourage us to pretend to be straight when we were born the way we are. We cannot stop being gay.
Tebow's been involved With Focus on Family, a gay-hate group. And his church, First Baptist Church, is profoundly homophobic.
I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. After all, I suspect that many of the jocksters I portray here are homophobes, if less open about it. There are very few like Ben Cohen, who is straight but gay-friendly.
