Tim Tebow may be known as God's Quarterback to many, but one would assume that he has not convinced the Church of Satan.
After a recent interview with TMZ, a representative for the church did admit that Tebow's faith might have something to do with the Broncos' wins.
TMZ spoke with Magus Peter H. Gilmore, a high priest in the Church of Satan, about whether God is helping Tebow. Although the representative said God is not helping Tebow, he does attest that his faith could play a significant role in his success.
Gilmore reportedly told TMZ that it does not make sense for God to help Tebow win because that would mean he is actively making other teams lose. He does, however, think that his faith might be helping him to some extent.
Those who have a winning attitude tend to do better, and whatever fuels such team spirit, be it religious fervor or simply an overwhelming desire to succeed, is the real source for success, said Gilmore.
Satanists are atheists, and we would consider any triumph to rely on a combination of skill and luck - most certainly not in any form of supernatural intervention from either Heaven or Hell.
Tebow's pastor begs to differ.
Pastor Wayne Hanson, who runs the Summitt Church in Castle Rock, Col. Where Tebow's dad often speaks, told TMZ that God is actively intervening in the Denver Broncos games and aiding the team because of Tebow's powerful faith.
It's not luck. Luck isn't winning 6 games in a row. It's favor. God's favor, said Hanson. God has blessed his hard work.
When asked if Tebow would be so victorious if he was not such a strong believer Hanson replied, No, of course not.
