Tebow Jesus, A new Tebow replica jersey is the latest fan item, CBS News affiliate in Montana, KTVQ, reported. But others are calling the controversial jersey, with the name “Jesus” on the back in place of “Tebow,” blasphemous.
Jason Homer, a native Coloradan currently serving in the missions field in Lima, Peru, said the shirt is “ridiculous.”
“I think it is ridiculous that people are creating Jesus jerseys with Tebow´s number. I like Tebow but that is just wrong,” Homer told The Christian Post. “I do not agree with the way they are using the name of Jesus.”
“It is just disrespectful using his name on a jersey with Tebow’s number.”
Chris Gaudreau of Golden, Colo., agreed.
“It’s making Tebow out to be a god instead of an athlete. I’m happy he’s a Christian and isn’t afraid to demonstrate that, but for fans to hold him up in such high regard, perhaps comparing him to Jesus, is going too far,” Gaudreau said. “There are plenty of athletes who are Christians. Maybe they don’t freely pray on the sidelines or use Bible verses on their FB pages, but he is being held in a regard that is probably embarrassing to him, as he seems very humble.”
