There are those that are, but not many of the big timers.
I don't want to steer this thread in the wrong direction, but I wonder if people's perception of Hamilton is influenced by the fact that he's open about his religious beliefs, which may make some uncomfortable. I don't he's anywhere near as obnoxious about his faith as Tebow, whom I find to be one of sport biggest attention whores, but I wonder if his background has a negative effect on how people view him.
