Gene Simmons, the bassist and lead singer of the rock band Kiss, is coming to football player Tim Tebow’s defense, condemning those who have made fun of the athlete for his Christian faith.

“He was widely criticized and made fun of simply because he is a man of faith who believed in his Christian values,” Simmons said of Tebow. “Shame on the NFL and the rest of the world for stooping so low.”

In both his college and professional football career, Tebow has been mocked for his faith.

“Daily Show” comedian John Oliver infamously declared: “I dislike [Zimbabwe dictator] Robert Mugabe. I hate Tim Tebow. If I was in a room with Tim Tebow and [Osama] bin Laden, and I had a gun with one bullet, I’d shoot bin Laden. I’m not a monster. But if I had two bullets, I’d shoot Tim Tebow first.”

The cast of “SNL” dedicated a skit to making fun of Tebow for kneeling in prayer before games, a personal decision mocked by a handful of the former quarterback’s fellow football players.

Leftist talk radio host Bill Press made fun of Tebow for often crediting “my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” for his success in football, saying, “You know what I want to say? STFU,” an acronym for “shut the [expletive] up.”
