Bill Maher vs. “Tebow Nation”
Is this stupid? Maybe I think so because I don’t have the gene that is required to be offended by every little things that’s said, that may go against my personal philosophies. I guess I have pretty thick skin. But what do you think? Read on.
I admit that I’m a Tebow, “The Footballer”, fan. Not a Tebow, as Christian Crusader, fan. However, it doesn’t bother me at all that he wants to use his celebrity to promote his religious beliefs. Who gives a poot? I just like him because he set the NFL back 60 years or so. He plays leather helmet football.
On the flip side of that, it also doesn’t bother me at all when someone makes a joke about his religious motives. It doesn’t bother me when someone makes a joke about Jesus though either. But again, I’m just missing that “I am offended by that” gene.
So now there’s the Tebow Nation getting all fired up over a tweet that Bill Maher, comedian and long-time host of “Real Time” on HBO, shot off into cyberspace. They’re offended, I guess. Again, I don’t get it. But whatever.
The tweet went like this : Wow, Jesus just f***ed #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere … Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them“.
Tebow Nation is considering a boycott of Maher’s show. Which is the most ridiculous part of all of this, because Maher has always made religion a focal point of his comdey routine. Tebow Nation, along with anyone that be offended by this, probably don’t watch anyway.
What do you think? Funny? Offensive? Or are you like me…You just don’t care?
