Kiss’s Gene Simmons: If Tim Tebow Was a Muslim, No One Would Pick On Him

It’s always a little surprising when an actor or celebrity says something smart, but this certainly fits.

Gene Simmons

“All those pundits in the peanut gallery who pick on [Tebow] because he is an avowed Christian, and proud of it, demonstrate the [most] heinous thing of all sports reporting and journalism. Because he is a man who believes in his God, and people pick on him. If he was a Jew or a Muslim and did that [was devout], people would never care. But for some reason, because he’s a Christian, you’re allowed to pick on him.”

Simmons said the journalists who have treated Tebow this way “should be held accountable.”

“They’re never going to pick on a guy who tortures dogs [a reference to Michael Vick, and can we get an Amen for that?] or… perhaps has gone to jail for murder,” Simmons added. “But if he believes in Christ his Lord, then he’s open season… it’s like what country are we living in?”

It is ironic.

Every sort of thug, killer, and deviant you can imagine plays in the NFL, but an incredibly popular player who led the Denver Broncos to the play-offs is so controversial he can’t even hold a job in the NFL as a back-up quarterback because he’s an incredibly popular outgoing Christian.

Yeah, what kind of country are we living in?
