Neil Patrick Harris has denied there is a 'gay agenda' at play in a CBS ad for Super Bowl XLVII.

“I must say I'm very excited for the Super Bowl,” Harris tweeted to his nearly 5 million followers. “I love football – look forward to it every year. #noagenda.”

Harris, the openly gay star of CBS' How I Met Your Mother, appears in the commercial wearing eye black printed with the game's date, Feb. 3, 2013, a practice made popular by New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow, except he prints Bible verses in his eye black.

Use of the eye black prompted Joe Kovacs to claim in a “WND Exclusive” titled 'Gay' CBS Star Now Mimics Tim Tebow? that CBS was mocking Christians.

“CBS, the television network airing the big game this year, is now using an outspoken homosexual actor to mimic Tim Tebow's style of trumpeting messages in eyeblack on his face,” Kovacs wrote.

“During Sunday's matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens, the network broadcast several spots promoting the network's upcoming Super Bowl coverage in New Orleans.”

“One football fan who watched the CBS promo Sunday made the connection between Harris and Tebow, saying, 'They're pushing a gay agenda by using him, and they're mocking Christians at the same time.'”
