Last week's Saturday Night Live ran a cute sketch making light of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow's predilection for pointing out his love for Jesus, like, literally all the time. The sketch, featuring a mailed in Jason Sudeikis-as-Jesus impersonation, was easy-breezy enough, though a little on the nose.
But according to Pat Robertson? The inflammatory pundit took to the Christian Broadcast Network to denounce SNL's impersonation as nothing less than "anti-Christian bigotry that is just disgusting," which is maybe a tad hyperbolic for a sketch that compares Tom Brady to the nephew of God. In case that wasn't enough, he postulated this awesome hypothetical: “If this had been a Muslim country and they had done that and had Muhammad doing that stuff, you would have found bombs being thrown off and bodies on the street." Yes, well, this isn't a Muslim country, and don't you want to keep it that way? Are you a secret traitor to the flag, Mr. Robertson?
Oh, I can't even pretend. Pointing out Robertson's public buffoonery is the easiest thing in the world, but it's really kind of funny to see him sputter in the defense of a millionaire football player with plenty of diehard fans who also happens to be a member of the most overwhelmingly popular religion in this country. Tebow needs no defenders; by definition, he's got millions of them. Below, you can watch the original SNL sketch and decide for yourself whether or not Jason Sudeikis's wig is making a mockery of this country.
