Robert Jeffress reaffirms anti-gay stance after Tebow controversy
First Baptist Church of Dallas Senior Pastor Robert Jeffress refuted comments that he’s anti-gay Sunday while addressing his congregation about Tim Tebow canceling his April visit. Tebow canceled last week after a media firestorm surrounding his visit because of the controversial evangelical pastor who has made anti-gay and anti-Semitic remarks in his sermons. He tweeted that “new information” led him to cancel the appearance. But the church released a statement that Tebow wanted to avoid controversy and said he would plan a visit to the church at a later time.
