A photo spread in GQ magazine of New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is raising eyebrows for playing off his born-again Christian beliefs.
The September cover story is headlined “Have You Accepted Tim Tebow as Your QB and Sunday Savior?” and is accompanied by a photo of a shirtless Tebow in a Jesus-on-the-cross pose.
The photo has been dubbed the “sexy Jesus” pose and radio talkers and others are attacking.
“All that is missing is an actual cross and a crown of thorns,” Lynda Altman wrote on Yahoo Sports. “Tim Tebow may have gone too far on this one. Is it right for a nice Christian boy to play to the media like this? Tebow is far from being the football savior the Jets need. As for saving anything else or anyone--I'll leave that to a higher power than Tebow mania.”
Craig Carton, host of the Boomer & Carton radio show, dubbed the photo “sexy Jesus” and called Tebow "fraudulent," "disgusting" and "egotistical" on his program on Sports Radio 66 WFAN, according to The Huffington Post.
