Tim Tebow Pulls Out of Speaking at Dallas Church

Eric Marrapodi of CNN reports on Tim Tebow’s recent decision to cancel his appearance at the First Baptist Church of Dallas, a megachurch led by the controversial Robert Jeffress who is known for his public denouncements of Mormonism, homosexuality, Islam, and Catholicism. Jeffress told CNN, “I think Tim is going to discover that no matter how hard you try to hide from controversy, if you stand for the simple truths of the Bible, like faith in Christ, necessary for salvation, and sex (being acceptable only) between a man and a woman in marriage, you can’t avoid controversy.”
