People like rooting for the underdog.  What's wrong with that??   I also don't understand why some people treat Christians worse than serial killers.

The biggest myth amongst American evangelicals is that they are an oppressed minority.

don't want to start a huge discussion here, but if you think about it, i bet you'd struggle to find a single "Christian" law that oppresses the average American on a daily basis.

Tebow is polarizing because he is openly religious.  I don't have a problem with the guy, though I'm getting tired of hearing about him, and equally tired of people blindly attacking or defending him just because of his faith.

The only angle I can take from this response is that you believe secular American law oppresses your beliefs.  If so I'd be happy to hear some examples of why living in our culture oppresses you so much as an evangelical.

It only has to do with his faith because you could argue Tebow wouldn't be nearly as popular if he didn't appeal to Christians.  The hate itself is more a result of the ESPN effect.  Anytime ESPN focuses too much attention on one athlete, that athlete is subjected to more hate than normal.  It's why people can't stand Brett Favre or Lebron James.  It's why Kevin Durant went from being a young player everyone generally liked to "the most overrated player and half those fouls he gets are BS OMG!!!!"  

It's why when there were breaking into programming to follow Derek Jeter's pursuit of 3,000 hits, people started to hate on Jeter more.  

ESPN paying too much attention to one player on one team will generally piss off a bunch of fans who want them to talk more about THEIR player on THEIR team.  

Fans are the ones who hate like this because most fans aren't fans of only one team and one player.  But ESPN is primarily interested in the casual sports fan...the people who follow individuals or sports not teams.  And those type of people generally don't get on the internet to complain about a player...fans of teams do.

So Tebow would be hated regardless of his faith.  His faith, or more specifically the way he chooses to publicly practice his faith, just becomes one of the in points for some to mock him.

I'm not saying that evangelical Christians ARE "oppressed" so to speak, but I don't think that non-Christians are by Christians either, at least to the extent that it actually stops them from being able to do what they want to do.
The point I was trying to make was not that I think evangelicals ARE an oppressed minority, just that I think it's blown out of proportion how much oppressed non-Christians actually are by Christians on a daily basis.

I agree with this to an extent.
I wholeheartedly believe that people hate him much more for his openly-practiced faith, but sure, they would still hate him regardless, because he would otherwise just be "the luckiest QB in the history of the NFL," and that would seriously piss a lot of people off.

Yeah...I was more commenting on evangelical Christians who take on a martyr complex, not so much inferring that Christianity oppresses secular culture.  A lot of people seem to confuse the difference of opinion that results from living in a free and open culture with oppression of belief.

+1 (from a Christian fwiw...)

Hearing any american living in america suggest that their religious views are being oppressed is a slap in the face to all missionaries across the globe who are truly in danger each and every day for talking about Jesus.

Perhaps it's pandering articles like this one that explain why some of us aren't fans of Tebow.... 

FROM ESPN:

The aftermath of Tim Tebow's injury

January, 18,
By Bill Williamson

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Denver quarterback Tim Tebow suffered his first significant injuries of his NFL career at the start of the third quarter of a 45-10 loss at New England in the AFC divisional playoffs. 

Schefter reports Tebow tore cartilage on his first rib where it attaches to his sternum, bruised his lung and had fluid buildup in his pleural cavity. Tebow finished the game and he is expected to be able to begin the offseason training program on time. 

Here are some thoughts on the situation: 

He proved his toughness: This, no doubt, reaffirms his teammate’s faith in Tebow. For him not to leave a lopsided game (Denver was trailing 35-7 at the time of Tebow’s injury), likely bought him a lot of respect in the locker room. Tebow has always had the respect of his teammates for his work ethic, his passion and his reckless style of play. 

But staying in a game after suffering a significant injury takes it to a different level. Tebow could have easily packed in it, but he refused to leave the game with the injury and in wicked, cold conditions. It’s another sign to Denver’s players that Tebow is totally sold out for the team. 

No Pro Bowl: The injury very likely takes Tebow out of the mix for a Pro Bowl spot. He is the second alternate on the AFC team. Quarterbacks often drop out, so Tebow may have had an opportunity to go. But there is likely very little chance he’d be cleared to play in the game at this point.

Only if his touchdown celebration involves wiping the American flag on his butt, and he spends his halftimes gay marrying socialist abortion doctors.  Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go down to the local elementary school and provide the children with clean needles so they can shoot up their heroin safely.

Tebow is probably the most loved and popular player in the NFL right now, or somewhere near the very top.
Most people like him, some of y'all are ridiculous.
