Bill Maher Takes Heat Over Tim Tebow Tweet

Even in defeat, Tim Tebow creates controversy — this time in Tinseltown.

HBO’s Bill Maher created a firestorm over the Christmas weekend with a scathing reaction to Tebow’s subpar performance in Buffalo. Shortly after Tebow threw four interceptions in the Broncos’ lopsided defeat to the Bills, Maher turned to his Twitter page to poke fun at the very religious NFL star. (And a warning: Maher’s tweet includes harsh language and divisive references.)

“Wow, Jesus just [screwed] #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere … Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them,” Maher tweeted.

Maher, a proud atheist who supports legalizing pot, same-sex marriage and is a board member for PETA, upset a number of conservatives, according to Entertainment Weekly. Eric Bolling of Fox News responded to Maher by calling him “disgusting vile trash,” among other things.

Tebow didn’t bother responding to Maher, but plenty of his fans did. Some called for a mass cancellation of HBO subscriptions over the offensive tweet. “Real Time with Bill Maher,” is scheduled to return to the premium cable channel on January 13, 2012.

eyecan, you see Christians as being hypocrits for many reasons. You probably are right. Jesus Christ set the standard so high no human can attain it. What He told His followers is that He would do it for them! Jesus Christ was the only one able to perfectly pass the test, because He was Himself God. It seems strange that God would set an impossible standard and then come to earth as one of His own created human beings to pass the test for us; but that is exactly what He did. And then men like Bill Maher, hating Him, had Him crucified. But no matter how hard you try, you cannot kill God. He rose from the dead and lives forever now watching and helping His children. Obviously at this time you aren’t one. Now don’t start yelling and screaming that you never will be; Saul of Tarsus would have said the same thing minutes before Jesus Christ met him on the road to Damascus. You can read about it in the book of The Acts of the Apostles. Stop by a church they’ll be glad to give you a Bible!

Eyecan,
Its clear you do not know who Jesus is. Why would you capitalize Maher’s name and not the name of Jesus?
Maher is certainly Satan’s mouthpiece. Jesus tells us
Mat 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Tebow is certainly confessing Jesus on the big stage.
As for Bill Maher, if he is your role model you will be spending all eternity with him in Hell.

Believe it or not I think jesus would be proud of Bill for seeing through the hypocrisy. Many things are said and done in the name of jesus that simply are a misrepresentation.
