With apologies to Slate, the Tim Tebow Messiah Watch is our occasional look at the growing body of evidence — quotes, signs and wonders, excessively fawning prose — that the Florida quarterback is the Lamb of God.
Today, we have Tim Tebow's comments regarding teammate Brandon Spikes, who on Saturday against Georgia apparently tried to gouge out the eyes of a Bulldogs running back.
Witness: Tim Tebow, via Florida Today's David Jones
Testimony: "Very emotional things happened in that game in particular that were not good for either side, but the bottom line is we're Florida and he's Brandon Spikes and we expect certain things. He understands.''
Pertinent Scripture: Matthew 5:38-39 (from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount)
"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.' But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also."
