CBSSports.com columnist Gregg Doyle evidently took offense to Tim Tebow, the Denver Broncos’ quarterback’s comments made in an interview with the Denver Post.
Tebow was quoted as saying:
“Others who say I won’t make it are wrong. They don’t know what I’m capable of and what’s inside me. My family and my friends have been bothered by what’s gone on, and I tell them to pay no attention to it. I’m relying as always on my faith.”
Doyle’s disdain for the Christian faith was evident when he responded to Tebow’s statement with:
“He’ll make it in this league – for the Bible tells him so. From the outside it looks like Tebow equates his love for God in heaven with tangible rewards here on earth. And that’s more than wrong. It’s blasphemy.”
Doyle’s remarks were very unprofessional and inappropriate. Various sport networks have disciplined reporters in the past for making disparaging comments about individuals, yet to date, they don’t seem to be doing anything about it. I wonder if they would rethink their non action if every Christian refused to watch CBS Sports for the rest of the year?
