Actually, they’re Tebowing. Then again, Tebowing is praying, by definition. And they’re in uniform. These Marines must be evidence of Michael Weinstein’s conspiracy theory that a secret Christian cabal is planning to take over the world. Tebow must be attending the meetings in the secret bunker with James Dobson and Dick Cheney. And Colonel Sanders.
Somebody call Richard.
The Tebowing website has an entire section on “patriotic” Tebowing, which is almost exclusively men and women in uniform striking the pose around the world, from Texas to Afghanistan and undisclosed locations.
- Tebowing with the children of Afghanistan
- F-16 Tebowing
- Tebowing in MOPP 4
- USAFA Tebowing, football and the terrazzo
- Predator Tebowing
- Tebowing the Marine combat fitness test
In seeing his TV interviews, Tim Tebow has a humble spirit and a good sense of humor. Say what you will about the Bronco’s offense, Tim Tebow has an amazing platform for Jesus Christ — as these pictures show, it’s one that reaches around the world.
In an interesting twist, it’s a platform he probably wouldn’t have but for the controversy surrounding him.
