Bill Maher's Profane Tweet About Tim Tebow Gets Christians Steaming Mad
"Comedian Bill Maher drew the ire of Tim Tebow fans and Christians over the weekend after a profane tweet reveling in the Broncos` blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills.
`Wow, Jesus just [expletive] #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere ... Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler.` `Hey, Buffalo`s killing them,` Maher tweeted ."
Bill Maher`s stock-in-trade is controversy, he`ll say anything to promote his HBO talk show. Christians who react to Maher`s provocations by calling on HBO to cancel his show are falling into his trap.
Tim Tebow seems to be a decent young man, but by tewbowing every time he has good fortune on the gridiron he is trivializing his faith and inviting scorn from comics and pundits.
I don`t presume to know the mind of God, but I think it`s a safe assumption that the Supreme Being doesn`t give a crap about the outcome of a football game. Tebow should do his tebowing in private, and only when something worthy of tebowing happens, like when a scientist discovers a cure for a terminal disease.
In a perfect world Tebow wouldn`t tebow in public, and Bill Maher wouldn`t go out of his way to infuriate Christians. But this ain`t a perfect world, and we have to learn to put up with the shenanigans of Bill Maher and Tim Tebow.
