Tim Tebow First Baptist Church speaking engagement canceled

Jets quarterback Tim Tebow won't be speaking at a controversial church in Dallas, Texas.

The outspoken Christian football player was scheduled to give a talk at the First Baptist Church in April.

On his twitter page, Tebow didn't specifically say why he was canceling, but wrote about new information that has been brought to his attention.

The church he was going to is led by Dr. Robert Jeffress, who has been criticized for his stand on homosexuality, Islam, and Mormonism.
