Tebow’s Illustration

This quote came from this article:

Tebow has indeed been vilified for his Christian faith and beliefs. Commentators  have taken aim at him because of his religion and pro-life stance.  One sportswriter compared  Tebow’s confidence that he will start in the NFL to  blasphemy. ‘Daily Show’ comedian John Oliver declared:  ”I dislike Robert Mugabe. I hate Tim Tebow.”

I liked this comment in the article:

Collinsworth concurred with Brown: ”I couldn’t agree with you more. And it’s  kind of a sad commentary, that, you know, if someone is out carousing every  night, the Joe Namath thing, or whatever, they’re American heroes, and Tim  Tebow, who’s working in missions in Asia somewhere, is a guy that we’re going to  vilify.”

Does this example hold true as a truth or is an outlier?

John 15:18-20

18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
