 LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Iconic conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, in an exclusive interview at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas, Nevada, tells Breitbart News that football star Tim Tebow “exhibits a muscular kind of Christianity” that more people in the United States should embrace.

“Tim Tebow has become a certain kind of iconic figure—he seems to represent a certain kind of muscular Christianity, almost the kind that the movie chariots of fire exhibited 20 or 30 years ago,” D’Souza said. “I feel there’s a certain boldness about the way he speaks his faith and what he represents. He represents a certain idea of America—kind of American exceptionalism if you will. It’s kind of hard to think of Tim Tebow in Brazil or in India.”

Tebow certainly has never been afraid of fighting for Christianity–and noting that his talents on the football field come from God.

“I realized you are no better just because you’re decent at a sport,” Tebow said in 2013 at an event where he was pushing Christianity, according to the Memphis Flyer newspaper. “It doesn’t make you special just because you can play baseball, football, basketball—those are just gifts from God. We’re all blessed with different gifts but that doesn’t make us more special or better. God gave us a gift and it’s about how we use it for his honor and his glory.”

D’Souza on Saturday will be in Tennessee with Tebow at Middle Tennessee State University for a faith-based event.

“I want to talk to him a little about his values, his faith, but also about his politics and his patriotism,” D’Souza said. “In some senses, Tim Tebow is a role model for young people today.”

“Join me on July 11, 2015 at Middle Tennessee State University as we celebrate and worship God together,” the event organizer from Christian group Music With A Purpose wrote on their blog about the event. “I am excited to return to Middle Tennessee for the first time in five years for a speaking event and look forward to meeting you, your family, and friends.  Be sure to tell everyone about this event, it is my hope we have a sold out show and we will have the nation talking about Tennessee and your love of Jesus Christ and America.”

D’Souza has been one of many conservative stalwarts to speak at Freedom Fest here in Las Vegas, where the 2016 campaign trail is burning up even more with real estate magnate Donald Trump facing off against

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)

at the Planet Hollywood resort and casino on Las Vegas Boulevard.

 The event in Tennessee on Saturday afternoon will feature not just D’Souza and Tebow, but also former state Sen. David Fowler, the current president of the Family Action Council of Tennessee, and will be emceed by nationally syndicated radio host Phil Valentine.

    I was happy to see Tim sidestep getting pulled into any discussion of politics. D’Souza had made a point of saying he was going to talk to Tim about his political views. Not only did that not happen…that I’m aware of…Tim didn’t even show up for until the time set aside to talk politics was over.

    Smart and classy move. The day Tim Tebow talks politics is the day his stature takes a huge step down.

    People have tried to tie Tim to politics and political issues/positions for years and he’s always found ways to stay above it. That’s not just rare. It almost unique. For someone under so many spotlights it probably is unique.

    Does’nt matter that Tebow is not involved with politics. According to the main stream media he is a Christian and needs to be destroyed.

    The hatred, mockery and disrepect shown to Tebow through the years by the media ( and which is still going on) takes your breath away.

      I really think the Christian thing gets overblown. And even if it doesn’t who cares?

      First the least trusted group of people is atheists. As a profession, the Media’s trust numbers are down below just about everyone but politicians. How bad are they viewed? In the most comprehensive study done on American’s trust values, Mainstream Media ranks below the Internet. People believe something they see on the internet MORE than anything the Media tells them.

      When you rank below Nigerian “Prince”s looking for just a little seed money to regain their “crown” that pretty much is the tale of the tape. 🙂

      Andrea: Seems it used to be that morals and doing what was right were celebrated in this country and now look…defies definition and at least we have a majority only it is too silent impo.
