Could it be that the reason so many non-Christian recognize Tebow's name is due to his recent notereity and not anything else?

I can think of a few sports stars offhand who are religious besides Tebow; mostly Mormon though, but I do live in Utah.

Everyone has the right to believe in whatever and worship in whatever way they choose.

I just don't think it should be part of sports or politics.

Tebow's kneeling kind of seems a little like nose-thumbing everyone else's beliefs.

The old, "My God is better than your God" thing.

Let him do it in the locker room, with any teammates who care to join him.

I do wish him the best; whatever may be in the future!

"Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven." Matt.6:1

"And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to [kneel] and pray in the [endzone] and [on the sidelines], that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your [locker] room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you." Matt.6:5-6 (updated)

I have never liked Tebow.
