Insulting Tebow will get you fired!

Following a 40-14 Broncos’ loss to the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, Maher tweeted, “Wow, Jesus just … #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler ‘Hey, Buffalo’s killing them’. (Adult language has been removed from the Tweet.)

Predictably, the dig from the atheist comedian didn’t go over well with Christians. Fox Business’ “Follow the Money” host Eric Bolling got things rolling with his Twitter response: “Bill Maher is disgusting vile trash. I can’t even repeat what he just tweeted about Tebow..on Christmas Eve. #straighttohellBill.”

Others have called for a boycott of HBO, which is the home of Maher’s show, “Real Time.” This wouldn’t be the first time Maher’s words have raised the ire of those on the opposite end of the political spectrum. There are regular calls for Maher’s ouster from HBO. It happened in July, following a frank discussion of “hate sex” with Republican presidential candidates Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum. And in 2008, following comments about Pope Benedict XVI.

Yeah, you can make all the jokes you want about Jesus, insult Muslims every day and a whole movie about Christianity, but dissing Lefty Jesus? That’s just beyond inexcusable!
