Tim Tebow Supporters Persecuted, Forced Into Exile...For One Day

Behold, video of Riverhead High School students Tebowing in the halls this week. Unfortunately for two students at Riverhead High School, the act was met with swift justice. Twin brothers Connor and Tyler Carroll were suspended by the school for organizing the mass Tebowing.

Administrators claim it had nothing to do with the religious implications associated with Tebow, but rather the disruptive nature of the display. Several kids were late to class because they could not part the veritable ocean of students clogging the hallways.

Said brother Tyler "I feel like we were singled out." His brother Connor added "There's people late to class every day, every period...I don't think the number really increased." As a result, followers are now congregating at the scene of the injustice. "More than a dozen Riverhead HS students chanted Tebow's name and struck his kneeling, fisted signature pose yesterday in front of the school, as one of the suspended twin seniors served out his single-day punishment." More than a dozen. Do you hear that, administrators? Your actions have backfired—the movement grows!


While school Superintendent, Pontius...er, Nancy Carney, could not be reached for comment, the man himself was reached and offered some wise words:

"You have to respect the position of authority and people that God's put as authority over you," Tebow told the media.

"So that's part of it, and just finding the right place and the right time to do things is part of it, too.

"But I think it does show courage from the kids, standing out and doing that, and some boldness.''
