I know that you will be shocked to know that one no-so funny man Bill Maher tweeted a very nasty comment about Denver Bronco starting quarterback Tim Tebow over the past weekend.
Mr. Maher's tweet was in reaction to the Broncos being blown out by the Buffalo Bills this past weekend by a score of 40-14.
Warning, this tweet will be repeated verbatim. No d---es.
And here it is:
"Wow! Jesus just fucked #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them.”
So nice! So, what is the word. Eloquent. If you happen to be at a bar and drunk off your rear end.
But what can one expect from this douchebrain.
Yeah, thats right!
Bill Maher is a douchebrain!
To unpack this, think about the way Mr. Maher describes Jesus Christ. As some homosexual getting off on seeing a bad game performed by Mr. Tebow. Really?
And to add more insult, the outward implication is that Jesus does not care about Mr. Tebow because this football game was played on Christmas Eve. Oh, yeah, "X-mas" Eve. X-Men, X-mas, yeah, whatever. But the vowed atheist Mr. Maher somehow brings in Hell, Satan and Adolf Hitler having a grand ol' time at Mr. Tebow's expense.
OK, let me point this out.
Some people think that athletes who are Christan believers think that God is actually involved in game outcomes.
No, God does not care about the outcome of any given sporting event. I believe that what God does care about is how said athlete played the game, or whatever it is. That the athlete gave it his or her all. And that he or she did not play dirty or cheap.
So, get that concept out of your mind.
In regards to Mr. Tebow, guess what folks? Psst! Tim Tebow is. . .human! Thus he is bound by the same things as the rest of us. And that includes having a really lousy game.
But Mr. Tebow, unlike Mr. Maher, showed a lot of class in his tweet about the game:
"Tough game today but what's most important is being able to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas everyone GB2."
And "GB2" is for "God Bless and Go Broncos.
And Mr. Tebow has the priorities right. It was a tough game for him. He was intercepted four times. And he just had a bad day. But it was Christmas Eve and his mind was on the meaning of the day. To celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It was not cursing God for his bad day. Or that the Broncos lost.
But it is the visceral hate that is being exhibited by the Tebow Haters.
Might I suggest that Mr. Maher would never had tweeted this if Mr. Tim Tebow was Abdul Mohammad Tebow:
“Wow, Mohammad just f**ked #AbdulMohammadTebow bad! And during Ramadan! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them.”
No, I do not think that the chicken that Mr. Maher is would have gone off on that version of Mr. Tebow.
But it is very easy to write such things about someone like Mr. Tebow. And he did what anyone should do. Ignore the little man. He has more important things to do.
So it is for people like me to point out the hypocrisy of someone like Mr. Maher. His real animus is against Christians. Sure, he has made a comment here and there about Islam. But really, knowing anything about Mr. Maher, do you really think that the example I presented above would have been done? Tolerated? No. But when it comes to Christians, the crickets are chirping.
While Mr. Tebow seems to have driven a lot of people crazy with his praying after touchdowns-Tebowing-this tweet of Mr. Maher shows a new low in the Tebow Hate.
