Neil Patrick Harris has supposedly mocked Christianity
Tim Tebow has been known to write evangelistic messages in the eyeblack on his face. Neil Patrick Harris wore eyeblack on his face for a commercial. Hence, Harris is mocking Tebow/Christianity.
New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow won’t be playing in this year’s Super Bowl.
But CBS, the television network airing the big game this year, is now using an outspoken homosexual actor to mimic Tim Tebow’s style of trumpeting messages in eyeblack on his face.
During Sunday’s matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens, the network broadcast several spots promoting the network’s upcoming Super Bowl coverage in New Orleans.
More than one featured Neil Patrick Harris, star of “How I Met Your Mother,” wearing eyeblack with the date of Feb. 3, 2013 inscribed, reminding viewers that Super Bowl XLVII would be on CBS on that date.
That’s some sound reasoning.
Tim Tebow, known for his Christian faith as well as football, became world famous for proclaiming Bible verses such as John 3:16 on his eyeblack, especially when he played for the University of Florida Gators before going pro.
One football fan who watched the CBS promo Sunday made the connection between Harris and Tebow, saying, “They’re pushing a gay agenda by using him, and they’re mocking Christians at the same time.”
I can’t help but wonder if other athletes have written messages in their eyeblack.
