Judging by his observable behavior, Denver Broncos’ quarterback Tim Tebow seems like a decent guy.
And, by the same rule, so-called comedian Bill Maher seems like a pretty pointless person who doesn’t deserve the time of day.
Maher, the writer and star of the 2008 commentary “Religulous” – a movie that mocked religion in no uncertain terms – thrives on saying nasty things to cover up his intellectual and societal inadequacies. So it should come as absolutely no surprise that he doesn’t like Tim Tebow, an avowed Christian who isn’t ashamed of what he believes.
Considering the obnoxious, unethical and/or downright illegal behavior of so many other NFL stars – Terrell Owens, Michael Vick and even Brett Favre come to mind – it seems rather stupid to get so riled up by Tebow’s good behavior. But Bill Maher is a supremely stupid man, which is why he tweeted:
“Wow, Jesus just #@*! Tim Tebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere… Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them”
Oh, and he didn't say #@*!. Self-censorship isn't something that Maher believes in.
Admittedly, the Broncos – which consist of more than just Tim Tebow, fyi – lost badly to the Buffalo Bills. And I’ll confess to cringing as I watched the score tick closer and closer to the humiliating 14-40 loss.
But guess what? Losses – even big ones – are part of life just like wins are. They don’t mean that Jesus hates Tim Tebow or that he isn’t exactly what he claimed to be.
Only a supremely stupid someone would try to think otherwise.
So here’s the bottom line on the issue: Bill Maher has made it his personal and professional purpose to prove himself pointless. And since he doesn’t have the power to affect our safety in any way, shape or form, it’s best just to ignore him altogether.
Maybe if we do, he’ll go away.
