Tim Tebow has another yet another fan in his corner: Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Cardinal Dolan, the Archbishop of New York, said Wednesday on his show on SiriusXM's Catholic Channel that he's pleased Tebow is now a member of the Jets following last week's trade.

"I'm kind of happy about ," Dolan said. "He's a class act. I've followed him with great interest and I highly respect him for his unabashedly Christian values. I've never found it put-offish or arrogant. It's just very gentle and sincere."

Cardinal Dolan also said Tebow isn't fazed by any sort of criticism.

"The man of faith that he is, he's used to it," he said. "Because he loves Jesus, Jesus is the most important person in his life, and Jesus has told us when you are with Him and when you stand up with Him you can expect to be insulted and harassed. So he's used to it."
