Tim Tebow is one of the most popular figures in sports.
Going back to his Heisman trophy and national championship winning days at the University of Florida Tebow built a following of a legion of adoring fans.
But you won’t believe why Tim Tebow was just silenced on social media.
Tim Tebow lives out his Christian faith.
There is no doubt Tebow’s sincerity and deeply held beliefs shape his life.
Tebow just doesn’t talk the talk, he walks the walk.
The former quarterback uses his social media platform to express his faith.
But that got Tebow into trouble when he posted a religious message that Twitter censored by putting a “sensitive content” label to cover up this missive.

Twitter has previously applied this label to Tweets by President Trump.
The platform has also taken down videos and Tweets promoting hydroxychloroquine as an effective treatment for coronavirus.
Now Twitter is extending its censorship regime to suppressing a popular athlete because he expresses his Christian faith.
Twitter claimed this was a “mistake.”
But these ”mistakes” never seem to affect left-wing sports icons.
Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James or the high priests of the new church of “woke” sports never see their pro-Black Lives Matter or anti-American declarations censored or suppressed.
Like the “mistakes” the Fake News Media made in the Russian collusion hoax, these errors only run in one direction.
Social media censorship is one of the biggest issues in the Presidential election.
And now it appears that by Big Tech making Tim Tebow their latest victim, the suppression of free speech will now be a feature of the sports world.
