Jewish KISS rocker, Gene Simmons, is now in the football business. After purchasing a new Arena Football League team with band mate, Paul Stanley, to be called LA KISS, Simmons has been actively putting together a team and doing what he does best… bringing attention to his new brand.

In a recent interview with Radio.com, Simmons took the opportunity to defend Tim Tebow’s religious beliefs, share his thoughts on Muslims and Michael Vick, and reinforce his interest in having Tebow join his AFL team.

"He's got a religious passion, as well he should, we're in America. He's proud to be a Christian, what's wrong with that? And yet, with sports media and pop culture media, they make fun of his religion. Really? In America? If he was wearing a burqa, they wouldn't dare say anything,” Simmons began in his tirade, forgetting to mention that only women wear burqa’s in the Muslim religion.

“But if you're a Christian, you get to be picked on? What the hell? The guy's got family values. I never saw the media picking on Michael Vick for torturing dogs. Or this other football player, who's alleged to have killed, committed murder. That's 'cool.' But a guy who's religious and has got family values isn't 'cool?' He's cool to me."

Tebow, who previously made “Tebowing” an online trend, was released from the New England Patriots a few weeks ago. Simmons hopes the former sensation will become the star quarterback for LA KISS.

"We haven't heard back from Tim," Simmons said in an interview with Nothing to Lose. "He's considering this seriously; he's in Los Angeles. Right after this, I'm gonna fly back with our guys and try to sit down with him and tell him that we're serious about this. He'll get the respect here that he didn't get at the NFL."

"I think religion is good for mankind. Without the Ten Commandments," Simmons continues, pausing to add, "Jews gave you that.”

“Without that, there'd be chaos. Somebody had to say, 'Here are some good ideas: don't steal, and don't kill.' Those are good ideas. That's called 'civilization.' There was once a time where those things weren't written down. You had chaos! We still have chaos, but there's a reference point. But those are good ideas. Honor thy father and thy mother. That's a good idea!"
