Tebow cancels appearance at controversial church

The SportsXchange

Outspoken Christian quarterback Tim Tebow has cancelled an appearance at a controversial Dallas Baptist church, citing "new information," according to a CBSSports.com report.

"While I was looking forward to sharing a message of hope and Christ's unconditional love with the faithful members of the historic First Baptist Church of Dallas in April," Tebow announced in multiple tweets. "Due to new information that has been brought to my attention, I have decided to cancel my upcoming appearance. I will continue to use the platform God has blessed me with to bring Faith, Hope and Love to all those needing a brighter day. Thank you for all of your love and support. God Bless!"

Shortly after Tebow's scheduled April 28 appearance was announced, CBSSports.com columnist Gregg Doyel wrote an inflammatory column on the church and its pastor, Robert Jeffress, who has been outspoken against Muslims, Jews, Mormons and homosexuals.
