Right Wing Watch is reporting that the New York Jet's Football Player is schedule to speak at a mega-church that is well know for its extremists views. The church has preached hate against Jews, Mormons, Catholics, Muslims, the LGBT community, Hindus and Buddhists. The Pastor of the First Baptist Church Dallas, Reverend Robert Jeffress has stated that Jews are destined to burn in hell.
Tebow will speak at two services for the hate filled church on April 28. The church just built a $130 million dollar new edifice that will dedicated on Easter Sunday.
Here is the report from Right Wing Watch:
"While Tim Tebow is struggling to find an NFL team that is willing to sign him, he is apparently having no problem booking speaking gigs as the Jets’ backup quarterback is scheduled to address a Texas megachurch whose pastor is notorious for extremist statements about Roman Catholics, Mormons, Muslims, gays and lesbians and President Obama.
Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church Dallas gained national attention during his appearance at the Values Voter Summit where he urged Christians to oppose Mitt Romney’s candidacy for the GOP nomination for president because his Mormon faith makes him a member of a “cult” that is “from the pit of Hell.”
Even though Jeffress said that supporting a Mormon would have “eternal consequences” that “outweigh political ones” and lead to God’s judgment, he ended up backing Romney over Obama, whom Jeffress believes is “paving the way for the future reign of the Antichrist.”
Besides Muslims, Jeffress labeled Roman Catholics, Hindus, Muslims, and Buddhists as cult followers. He has called Islam an “evil, evil religion” and claimed that Muslims, Mormons and Jews are destined to Hell.
Jeffress also attacked Roman Catholicism, which he maintains represents “the genius of Satan,” and suggested that Catholics too will go to Hell.
The megachurch pastor reserves some of his most stringent rhetoric for gays and lesbians.
He has described gays and lesbians as “perverse,” “miserable” and “abnormal” people who engage in an “unnatural” and “filthy practice” that will lead to the “implosion of our country.” Jeffress argues that the gay community employs Chinese “brainwashing techniques” in order to have homosexuality “crammed down our throats.”
