    All of this John 3:16 talk and Tim Tebow.
    A far more fitting verse for the his prayer showboating..

    Matthew 6:5-6

    “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. (6) But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

    The first amendment gives him the right to put John 3:16 under his eyes.
    Also the right to pray in public.

    Matthew 6:5-6 is speaking about showcase prayer.
    Tim Tebow is doing relational prayer.

    Jesus words were directed to the attitude of the pharisees when praying in public not on the action of praying in public. The tax collector who was praying near the pharisee was also praying in public, in the temple (not alone in a room). The pharisee was glorifying himself while the tax collector was asking forgiveness.

    Jesus prayed in public, for one example: before resurrecting Lazarus in front of:
    the disciples,
    Lazarus' sisters,
    and a lot of other people who gathered there and saw the miracle.

    If you check the gospels He prayed in public in many of other events. again it is about attitude more than actions.

    He has proved many times that it his relationship to Jesus.
    You can't read his heart.
    You just don't like seeing him do it in public.
    I didn't hear any complaints about the last time the Bronco's played when the whole team knelt on the field and prayed for their injured comrade.
