A spokesman for Tim Tebow says he's canceling an appearance at a revival organized by a controversial Ohio preacher.
The star Denver Broncos quarterback -- and outspoken Christian -- was scheduled to speak at a Columbus event in March led by televangelist Rod Parsley.
Tebow's brother Robbie said Wednesday he's cancelling the talk. Robbie Tebow says Tim's speakers' bureau hadn't researched the event before saying yes to the invitation.
Parsley teaches that God wants the faithful to be rich. Last year, he asked followers to donate more than $1 million to ward off satanic attacks. In the 2008 presidential election, Republican Sen. John McCain disowned an endorsement from Parsley after learning the pastor called Islam an ''anti-Christ'' religion.
A Parsley spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

That photo has mysteriously been pulled from the site and no one has a reason why.

Some people like to have the last word. Others, the first.
Tim Tebow will take both, thankyouverymuch.
The media magnet has already turned down many-a-network appearance offer in the 18 days since the Denver Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs (yes, it’s only been that long). He’d been offered to sit-in with the NFL on CBS Crew during Championship Weekend,...
If the Broncos want to travel down the road to the Super Bowl, the training wheels need to come off Tim Tebow.

Every team in the league except the two in the Super Bowl have thought about how Peyton Manning could fit into their plans but Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post says a healthy Manning could be just the tonic to make the Denver Broncos championship-ready.

Athletes from different countries and origins, although mostly Christians, have revealed not only their beliefs in God but to a certain extent have used their time in the spotlight to proselytize for their own faiths. In principle, this not a major problem for sports - athletes have all...
