Tim Tebow’s Pastor: Broncos Winning Streak is “God’s Favor”



You knew this was coming. Eventually, someone would dare to be stupid enough to say this. Especially after yesterday, when the Chicago Bears (SPECIFICALLY MARION BARBER) gave away a game to the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow. The collapse was so unlikely and so one-sided in the final two minutes that you just knew some idiot would claim this game was “God’s will.”

This comment is so bad, I’m sure Tim Tebow himself will back away from these comments.

TMZ spoke with Pastor Wayne Hanson, who runs Summit Church in Castle Rock, Colorado, a Denver suburb. He is Tebow’s pastor and attributes the success of Tebow and the Broncos to God’s favor.

The giant gossip site tells us:

Hanson tells us, “It’s not luck. Luck isn’t winning 6 games in a row. It’s favor. God’s favor.”

Pastor Hanson adds, “God has blessed his hard work.”

We asked Hanson if Tebow would be winning games if he wasn’t such a strong believer — and the pastor replied, “No, of course not.”


This is so intelligence insulting on so many levels. What about all the Christians who play for the Chicago Bears? What about all the Bears fans who prayed for a victory yesterday? What about the other five teams who lost to Tebow? And their fans? Do you know how many Christians are deeply connected to the Raiders, Chiefs, Chargers, Vikings  and Jets? Yet their prayers are not to be answered and Hanson’s are?

This is extremely smug and condescending, not to mention a little batsh** crazy to assume God is on your side and not the others in a football game.
