Earlier this month we broke the story  that Tim Tebow was scheduled to appear at a megachurch led by far-right pastor Robert Jeffress. Today, Tebow announced  on Twitter that he is pulling out of the event “due to new information that has been brought to my attention.”
Jeffress has claimed that Roman Catholicism is Satanic , criticized Mormonism and Islam as faiths from the “pit of Hell ,” warned that President Obama is ushering in the Antichrist  and frequently  attacked  gays  and  lesbians .
The preacher has been making  the  rounds  on conservative media denying claims about his extremist rhetoric, and yesterday told radio host Janet Mefferd that liberals simply cannot understand his words because they are “spiritually blinded” and are “the most intolerant and hateful people.”
He added that Tebow won’t cancel his appearance “as long as he listens to the Holy Spirit and to God’s voice.”
Or maybe Tebow is just another victim of gay brainwashing :
UPDATE: In an interview today with fellow anti-gay activist Tim Wildmon , the president of the American Family Association, Jeffress said  that Tebow told him “he would like to come back to our church at a later date” once the current controversy blows over.
