Shockingly, Tim Tebow and the owner of the Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs did not get buried by the pro-abortion media for their recent appearance at the Kansans For Life Valentine’s Day banquet.
Serving as master of ceremonies, Lamar Hunt, Jr., one of the owners of the Super Bowl Champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, offered opening remarks, during which he said:
“I do not think it is a cliché to say we are in a life and death battle for the truth and authentic dignity of the human person. We need your full attention. You need to drop what you’re doing and join us, and this can be in so many ways: prayer, assistance to those in need, emails, phone calls, in-person meetings. Get educated about what we’re fighting about here. Listen in and tune in.”
Later, Hunt said, “Please do something about it. Pray. Take action. If you don’t know what to do, ask somebody. Place this as a major priority in your life.”
While it’s amazing that Lamar Hunt Jr., owner of the Chiefs, served as master of ceremonies at the event without an onslaught from pro-aborts.
It’s even more surprising that Tim Tebow didn’t get slammed by liberal-biased pro-infanticide media for saying he’d rather be known for saving babies from abortion than as a Super Bowl-winning quarterback.
But somehow Tebow, Hunt and Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt, who also attended, managed to fly under the critical radar of the media who predominantly take a whack at sports figures who go right on social issues.
Tebow thanked Hunt for “having courage in the face of a lot of other people who don’t have it and for your willingness to be up here and support this organization.”
Tebow said his cause is life, not philanthropy.
“When’s the last time you heard a rescue mission taking place in a month or a few years. No, a rescue mission means now. It gives you a sense of urgency. It says we have to go not because it’s our time, but because it’s their time. … I have to live a sense of urgency because while I might have time, they don’t.”
Tebow told Hunt and Colquitt it was “awesome” that they won the Super Bowl earlier this month:
“It’s amazing. What an accomplishment! But you know the best part of that accomplishment is that it gets you an even bigger platform.”
They can use that platform to support the pro-life movement, Tebow said.
Tim Tebow’s 2010 Super Bowl Pro-Life Commercial
Tim Tebow and his mother Pam got roasted by the media for appearing in a “controversial anti-abortion” Focus On The Family-sponsored commercial during the Super Bowl in 2010.
Tebow’s parents are pro-life, and they stood strong when a doctor advised his mother to abort him:
“You see, my mom 32 years ago had doctors tell her she needed to abort me because if she didn’t, it was going to cost her life. And they didn’t even believe that I was a baby. They thought I was a tumor.”
Tebow’s mother refused the abortion advice, and when he was born it was discovered that his placenta was no longer attached.
The doctor called the fact that he survived “the biggest miracle” he’d seen in his 37-year medical career.
