Tim Tebow

15,000 Show Up

for His Easter Sermon

4/8/2012 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tim Tebow delivers a sermon.
A crowd of nearly 15,000 gathered at an outdoor Easter church service in Georgetown, TX today, where New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was the main attraction. 

Some of the crowd came from as far as 100 miles away. Pastor Joe Champion said, "In Christianity, it's the Pope and Tebow right now. We didn't have enough room to handle the Pope."

Tebow preached that it was important for people to be outspoken about their faith (never a problem for Tim) and that athletes are role models, whether they like it or not.

According to local reports, several hundred people left after Tebow finished speaking ... not even staying for the pastor's main Sunday sermon.

I don't know how to explane it, but I think Tebow has taken it to far. Shame on him.

Bunch of brain washed sheep. Sounds like a Nazi rally. 15,000 show up to listen to a football player? Yikes!

Stupid people outbreed smart people and this just demonstrates that.

This country is doomed.

Celebrities Suck    

The several hundred people that left after Tebow finished speaking should be ashamed of themselves. They did not even stay for the pastor's main Sunday sermon.

If Reverend Tebow knew what was good for his flock, he’d be calling for the Easter Bunny’s swift demise! This furry little Satan-spawn is eroding away children’s health and happiness through Capitalist sin. Help our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ battle for the throne of this holiday and bring the Hammer of God down on the Easter Bunny at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/04/oschter-haws-easter-tale-of-calamity.html

Don't preach my good friend. But act according to the scripture. Show true reverence for the Lord and ye shall be saved. Or end up on a mag for quite a stash.

Tim Tebow is like a breath of fresh air, i love the fact that hes not ashhamed to talk to people about jesus and people just seem to criticize him for what cause he does the right thing. If this was Tom Brady doing this sermon i bet all u people whould have nothing to say about him right???. Tim Tebow shows that hes a person if his word not only on the football field but off as well. SO TO ALL OF JETS NATION HAPPY EASTER, TEAM TIM TEBOW GOD BLESS U 46 TIMES AND OH YA IM SO EXCITED!!!! =)

It's nice to see a man that is true to himself and his beliefs despite what others think. We don't have to agree with him, but we can at least respect him for standing up for his convictions and not pretending to be something the public wants him to be. Happy Easter Tim.

He should take some public speaking courses, he still talks like a 17 year old, his whole (aw shucks) routine is really growing old. Wait until he starts playing in New York and can't complete even 50% of his passes, they will run this god fearing virgin right out of town.Tebow That!
