Bill Maher is only doing his job- stirring up big controversy. As a talk show host, this type of thing is required. The proud atheist and creator of the award-winning film “Religulous” has Fox News talking heads and Christians everywhere fired up with this tweet about Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos:

(and since this is a SFW site I put the *** in that word, Maher most certainly did not)

Wow, Jesus just f***ed #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them”

Here’s more from The Post Game

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.

By the way that link on cancellations only led to some guy I’ve never heard of Utah’s tweet; he has 31 whole followers and a Garden of Eden looking Twitter background, not sure I really see the point in linking to him, or if he has any actual clout or not. Maher’s show is currently on break till Jan 13th. Maher is no stranger to controversy, especially when it revolves around organized religion. I’m guessing this comment will only help him in the long run as it preaching to the converted and offends only those who despise him already.
