Ah. In order to be governor of Florida, one must be 30 years old, and have lived in the state for the previous 7 years. I could see him maintaining an offseason home in Fla for that purpose. He could exercise huge influence from such a platform, including advancing his religious ideals. I see it as highly possible.

Unless he just wants to start a ministry, he's going to need a platform from which to wield influence and, frankly, power.
Billy Graham has met with 12 presidents, has converted 3.2 million people in his calls to Christianity and has spoken to 2.2 BILLION people.

What does 'unless he wants to start a ministry' mean to you. Those were the words that precededed the ones you quoted.

I just see a political platform as wielding more real-world power and influence. Given the fact that he was in Focus on the Family Superbowl commercials before every playing an nfl down, I don't think he shies away from exerting influence.

The guy that thinks the current President of the United States wasn't born in the US is calling people small minded...

WTF

You just said the exact same thing about those who hate him. In fact you said worse. All he did was take what you said and replaced the Lefty words with Righty words. You are ridiculous.

So if, say, Ronald Reagan and Billy Graham both had meetings with German Prime Minister Helmut Kohl, Graham's message would be the more important and influential?

It would depend on the reason for the meeting, yes?

I'm thinking Tebow is more focused on football, not a potential political career 15 to 20 years down the road.

And believing Obama is not a US citizen...that's 9/11 truther territory. Its insane, and factually wrong. Good grief. You could be right about 99.9% of everything else you say, but will automatically be discounted because you believe Obama is Kenyan.

And I do get a LULZ about politicians being smart. Too many examples disprove that.

Where's his Birth Certificate?


Bur seriously me thinks he's got bigger things in his future than a stupid politician. He's already building a Hospital.

I think its far more likely he does public speaking, charities, or run a big religious charity, or maybe even becomes a minister etc etc.

You need to back up read the thread that led to that question if you want me to answer it.

Football is a stepping stone and a platform for him to get his word out, little more. I wonder how important it really is to him beyond his initial enrichment and spreading his fame. Kind of scary, really. Tebow for president? Yikes.

I could definitely see him entering politics one day.

And he's a natural born citizen -- the only requirement for President is that it be "by birth or blood." The only people excluded are naturalized citizens like Ahnold. (McCain was born on Panama).

Amazing you were able to sort and label those you call "haters"....

You, thankfully, are not a member of the group of 'Christians' with a long list of groups of people they find worthy of hate as opposed to Christian love and charity.

If you think Tebow isn't bright then you likely aren't very bright yourself.

Being "book smart" doesn't make someone bright. In fact our education system is designed for that very purpose IMO. Make people book smart but completely incapable of really doing anything.

Tebow is a natural born leader... that's really what this country needs more than anything. I doubt the powers that be would ever let him get in power though.
