In his article, published in USA Today, Taunton argues that the reason so many people are critical of  Tebow is because he is very vocal about his Christian faith. Taunton says that Christians in general are portrayed negatively in the media and many people are jaded because of it:

“It seems that Christianity is the only religion that’s politically correct to discriminate against.”

Taunton goes on to say that, because Tebow is so clean-cut and humble, he doesn’t make people feel better about themselves, so they want to find a reason to dislike him.
