Piers Morgan "Tebows"

Tonight Piers Morgan sits down with NBC football analyst Tony Dungy and co-author of "Through My Eyes: A Quarterback’s Journey," Nathan Whitaker to talk about the rise in prominence of faith in sports. The Denver Bronco's quarterback Tim Tebow is a rising star that has captured America's attention in part because of his faith.

Piers decided to perfect "The Tebow," Tebow's most well-known position. Whitaker says when you're in the position "Tim would hope that you would be praying." Tune in at 9pm ET/PT for the full interview.

      I have no problem with what someone has done in the past unless I see there is nothing learned. I honestly don't like to get into personal thoughts on celebrities because being people, they will always disappoint you. I think Piers Morgan is an excellent host – love him.
      Too bad – I was very disappointed with the Kenneth Branaugh interview. Branaugh is such a fine actor he doesn't need to engage in embarrassing self promotion. Terrible interview – not the fault of Piers.

    I have been a loyal viewer, but learning of your immoral and unethical conduct regarding Paul McCartney, I shall no longer watch nor respect you.

    Oh Piers, Tut_tut, your video hearing on the hacking didn't go too well. Did it? Time/Warner/Ted Turner/CNN take note – Piers, not a good day at your new office today.

    CNN, your employee isn't very forthcoming with the facts or the truth & showed he was up to his shoulders in muck & is showing a very economical side to the truth. Sad day for CNN.

    Tim Tebow makes me want to watch football again, unlike Kathy Grififin who make me not want to watch stand up again.

    I find it hard to believe that CNN would allow themselves to be afiliated with someone that clearly has no respect for the people's right to privacey that are willing to appear on your network. I've always respected CNN for it's principled reporting, however by providing Piers Morgan a platform to attack our celebrities and political servants gives me considerbal concern. After watching Mr.Morgan's testimony on C-Span 2's channel, I would think that you would be sharing your audiences concern as well.Your network and audience deserve better. Thank-You

    Mr. Morgan owes Michael Vick an open AND public apology for his comment regarding role models during his segment on Tim Tebow. Why build up one man while kicking another in the stomach in doing so? The remark was uncalled for.

    Praying to win a FOOTBALL game? Praying to thank Jesus for a win in a FOOTBALL game? Disgusting. I love football. How about praying for the people in Haiti that have no homes and are still living in tents? How about alll the people in Syria, Lybia, and Egypt that are dying for their beleif in democracy and freedom? I love football and lots of other sports but I don't waste my prayers on the athletes and teams that are already rife with Godgiven atheltic abilities....(and lots of money, by the way....)

    At the beginning of the season, the Broncos were considered a below-average team across the board, i.e. defensively, offensively, special teams. Now they are a team with a great defense, super special teams, etc. These are the same players who played with Orton. But something has changed. What is the relationship between prayer and football? Tebow might pray throughout the game that God’s will be done, that he is thankful for every opportunity that may come his way, or once in a while he might pray that the Broncos could really use a break at a particular time. Christians don’t pray that others are injured or that others don’t play well. We want everyone to play well with good sportsmanship and no injuries. Christians bring their prayer life into everything they do. We are advised to pray without ceasing (ref. I Thessalonians 5:15-22). We believe there is a huge war between good and evil going on here and that Satan would like to corrupt Christianity…something he has been pretty successful with so far. We have TV shows about Christians who have many wives, those with lots of children, those who are harsh disciplinarians, and so on. (The Reformation, which so many like Martin Luther lost their lives for, is pretty much dead.) But Tim Tebow is really a normal Christian practicing Christianity as it is meant to be practiced. When Tim gestures heavenward or gets down on a knee to send up a quick prayer, he is just doing what comes naturally. But he is also making a point especially to the youth that they should put God first in their life. He is a role model for Something very wonderful and he wants others – both youth and adults – to find what he has found.

    What PM has done or not will never be known. Media needs to be more open and honest. Media is far from free it is controlled just like our goverment and the federal reserve bank by a chosen few. Who runs CNN? It's not Ted Turner. Let's get real America. When do we wake up?

    Well., well Mr. Morgan.....you seem to be know before yesterday's questioning as a man with plenty of self confidence....but answers to critical questions like .... "i believe so" or.... "I can not recall".... made it very obvious......that your working history and integrity may not be as clean as what the public should think about you ....a "celebrity" with at least a number of spots on the otherwise white vest !!!???. YOU KNEW MUCH MORE THAN WHAT YOU ADMITTED BELONGING IN THE SAME POT AS MANY OTHERS OF YOUR COLLEAGUES. NO GOOD ADVERTISING FOR CNN.

    While Mr. Morgan acknowledges an admiration for Tim Tebow, he obviously does not understand what is happening when one bows his knee to the almighty God. It is not about feeling power yourself, but understanding and humbling oneself before the One who has the power of life and death. By claiming to receive power by kneeling, Mr. Morgan acknowledges himself as a fool. In essence he is mocking those who openly declare God as the sovereign ruler of the universe. If Mr. Morgan believed in the concept of absolute truth, he would not think so highly of himself.
