SNL Tim Tebow-Jesus Skit Slammed By Christian Leaders

by at . Comments

Saturday Night Live's sketch about Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow - and a snarky Jesus Christ (Jason Sudeikis) - has not been well received by Christian leaders.

In the skit, the Messiah Himself appeared, telling Tebow (Taran Killam) to "take it down a notch" with his religious zealotry ... you know, since He does all the work.

The clip has become an Internet sensation (not unlike, say, Tebowing). It’s also drawn fire from religious commentators, who think it indicates bias against Christians.

Televangelist Pat Robertson in particular called the Saturday Night Live Tim Tebow skit part of a rising tide of “anti-Christian bigotry that is just disgusting.”

He said, “If this had been a Muslim country and they had done that, and had Muhammad doing that stuff, you would have found bodies on the street.”

Possibly a little extreme, but point taken. Robertson said of Tebow, “This man has been placed in a unique position, and I applaud him. God bless him.”

Your thoughts on the Tebow-Jesus sketch?

And I find Pat Robertson disgusting! The Christian Right only finds this offensive because the skit asks Jesus to 'take it down a notch" & this goes against their agenda of 'taking it up to the maximum notch' until they drown out all other religions in this country. Such hypocrisy whining & invoking the image of a Muslim country when their goal [i]IS[/i] to make America just as rigid as they are in repressed societies.
