Attention those under rocks: NY Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow photoshop posed as a sexy crucified Jesus in September's issue of GQ. The list of celebrities who have done this pose is a lot shorter than those who have Tebowed. Kanye West for Rolling Stone. Madonna struck the pose for, well, Madonna. Lindsay Lohan did it for PURPLE FASHION magazine (above). None particularly thrilled the Catholic Church. Lohan's spread elicited this presser from the CATHOLIC LEAGUE For Religious and Civil Rights:
Not only was the pose inappropriate, the timing was offensive: the magazine hit newsstands the week before Lent.
Lohan, an ex-Catholic who is spiritually homeless, recently said, “I’m all about Karma…what goes around comes around.” If she believes that, then it should behoove her to apologize to Christians before it’s too late.
Tiger Woods is not the only celebrity who would benefit by converting to Christianity these days. Forgiveness occupies a central place in Christianity, but the predicate to forgiveness is repentance.
Tebow? Since he's already a church figurehead the rebuke hasn't been as strong (yet). But who, besides the aforementioned, does that pose? The answer is: Nobody does.
Craig Carton, defender of all that is holy and undefiled, correctly called TT out as a narcissist and a fraud. And he got us thinking. The only other thing different from Tebow's pic and all the others is the lack of a prop. He's not wearing JC's crown of thorns.
We didn't want to go the easy route, so we had MFP add the cross Tebow so desperately seeks.
There. Now that should help disbelievers more easily view the complete picture.
