The Post Game: Even in defeat, Tim Tebow continues to be a polarizing figure. A popular skit on the latest edition of Saturday Night Live which focused on the Denver Broncos quarterback’s obsession with religion has drawn a heated response from America’s leading televangelist. Pat Robertson claimed the SNL skit was “anti-Christrian bigotry that’s just disgusting.” Robertson, 81, told viewers on the Christian Broadcasting Network’s 700 Club that had the skit been about another religion, things would have been much different.
“If this had been a Muslim country and they had done that, and had Muhammad doing that stuff, you would have found bombs being thrown off, and bodies on the street,” Robertson said.
First of all, there is no god. (spoiler alert) Second, although Pat “There may be no god but keep sending money” Robertson is right about Muslim countries, the jealousy in his statement is hilarious. This is what hamstrings the Republican party every time. You’ve got the conservative constitutionalists hijacked by the religious crazies who would rather burn the constitution and move back to the 1100′s where priests sentenced sinners to knob polishing (openly) and a new crusade was the preferred method to raise money for the new
wine cellar and brothel church wing. You can tell he’s aching to go back to a time where he can shoot dead any blasphemer and leave his lifeless body propped up at the city limits like Morgan Freeman from “The Unforgiven.”
Finally, that skit wasn’t all that funny, so if Pat “The collection plate offering isn’t a suggestion” Robertson was pissed about that, I could understand his anger. You have seven weeks of miracles to come up with some funny material, and instead you float out obvious joke after obvious joke, as if you
were writing a crappy blog and just needed to get something, anything, out in print ran out of material and added this skit as last minute filler.
